Don’t let your breakup get you down — go out looking your best like Eva Longoria did at the Golden Globes!

If you’ve ever had revenge fantasies where you run into your ex looking utterly fabulous, thus making him regret ever losing you, you aren’t alone. Looking good really IS the best revenge! Kudos to Eva Longoria for making this old adage her mantra at the Golden Globe Awards last night. Tony Parker should feel like a fool after seeing how gorgeous she looked!

Luckily, Eva and her A-list brethren had a brilliant public platform to show just how much they’ve moved on at the Golden Globe Awards over the weekend. While Eva gave her NBA star ex a reason to miss her in a plunging, sophisticated Jenny Packham number, another recently single gal, Scarlett Johansson, failed at the same mission. Although her Elie Saab gown was gorgeous, Scar Jo missed a prime opportunity to show the world that she’s moved on from her split from husband Ryan Reynolds with her Bride-of-Frankstein hairdo. The look itself wasn’t cohesive.

I’m a fan of looking your very best after a bad breakup. Some of us turn to food and comfort eating post-split, becoming the very image of a modern-day Bridget Jones with endless bottles of cheap champagne and pints of Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey littering our kitchen tables. Others hit the gym, hair salon or Sephora counters with a vengeance, intent on making him see just how perfect a woman he lost. Choose the latter…PLEASE.

Sure, maybe you’re changing your lifestyle and hitting the gym or looking like the best version of you for the wrong reasons, but who cares what your catalyst is as long as you have something that makes you feel good about yourself? If you look in the mirror and like what you see, that’s a great thing! An added bonus here — feeling good will give you confidence, which will come across in your relations with other men, and you’ll be snapped up by someone worthy before you know it!

If you have to indulge in straight-from-the-package cookie dough for a week or so, do it! But after a week, stop wallowing and start doing something to make you feel happy again. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again — looking good is the best revenge, and Eva is living proof!

I totally agree with you, Laura! Looking your very best after a bad break-up is really the best revenge/karma that you could give to someone who hurts you. hehe! :D I’m in a situation right now that I always see my ex and his parents every Sunday in Church. I’m a Lector/Commentator so for sure they will always see me,too. I always make sure to look at my very best, I really put an effort to look great and beautiful! I received a lot of compliments for looking good and people also appreciate what I’m doing being a Lector/Commentator in our Church. It really feels great to be appreciated and feels good about yourself! Remember, always think that you’re not doing it just to revenge against your ex, think about it that you’re making it for your own good and you also deserves to be happy.
