~my thoughts about life~

I totally have boring answers today, but I'll answer the questions anyway.  Crazymama wants to know how I pamper myself...

{1} What is your go to color if you paint your nails? Do your toes and fingernails match?
Clear.  Yep, boring old clear.  99% of the time, my nails aren't even painted clear.  So yeah, I guess my toes and fingernails match because neither of them have anything on them.  I really don't understand how anyone can keep their nails from chipping.  I always end up scraping my polish off when I do wear it.

{2} Have you ever gone for a mani/pedi? How often do you go?
I had a manicure before my wedding fifteen years ago.  I have a Groupon right now for a mani/pedi that I bought for a friend and myself for her birthday.  It's about to expire so I'd better use it!!!  To answer this question, I go every 15 years.

{3} Do you color your hair? Do you have a salon do it or do you do it yourself?
Nope!  My hair is a natural combination of brown and gray.  You can't duplicate this, ladies!

{4} Facials...have you ever had one?
Ha ha...nope!  I really don't desire to have a person that close up in my personal space.  I don't even like how close the eye doctor and dentist have to get to me.  I worry the whole time that I'm going to laugh.  It's a nervous thing, I guess.

{5} Would you or have you ever done botox?
Judging by my previous answers, what do you think?  Negative.

{6} Beauty knows no pain, do you believe in waxing, electrolisis, eyelash extentions, anti-aging creams, micro-dermabrasion, peels, botox?
I use Olay moisturizer.  That's about it.  I don't even wear makeup.  I may be the only person you know who can actually say that.  No foundation, no mascara, no lipstick.  Just good old Blistex or Burt's Bees lip balm.  I do believe in Spanx and very high heels.  That's how beauty brings pain to me.  Oh, and lots of hairpins that give me a headache.  I work quite hard to get my hair up and looking perty every day.

By the way, I am linking up with Mamarazzi for We Want to Know.  Feel free to join in the fun!

I'm with you on almost every answer you gave, but I'll just pretend question #6 doesn't exist.

However...I do color my hair. I'm not a very vain person, but this "getting older" gig isn't all that it's cracked up to be, so I shamelessly color my hair to maintain some small shred of dignity while my body continues to betray me at every turn.

I worked at a job for nearly six years that didn't let me have nail polish, and I never got back into the swing of doing my nails when I left., so I do understand just not doing them. And I totally agree, they just chip off anyways, or I smudge it up before it dries. And amen to high heels!

I don't paint my nails, quit coloring my hair more than a year ago and have never had a mani-pedi or a facial. The most pain for beauty that I go through is plucking the hair off my chin. Old age is lovely.

LOL and for me this post was a big old fat reminder to go make an appointment for a pedi. Can't go to Florida with ugo feet:)

I feel the same way about manicures! I love getting pedicures, but since my fingernails chip within 20 minutes of walking out of the salon, I don't really see the point of spending the money!
