First snow yesterday and it is 33F right now. It's time to layer up, and I am wearing charcoal knit pants from Spiegel, black knit tank (V8559), wrap top V8390, scarf from my wonderful friend Beth, and V7976 flip collar jacket. Danskos, socks, gloves complete the outfit...now off to recycle Diet Coke cans :-)
As you can see, my hair is flat and straight from the hair mask. I'll let it alone for a few days before washing it again, and wear hats in the meantime. I feel girly after taking the time to do some beauty routines, and plan to add this to my personal calendar. The foot scrub is very good, and while not all the dry skin is gone, my feet look a bit better. Enough about me-what about you?
Your comments suggest that many of my readers don't follow a beauty or self care routine. Only one reader had specific suggestions-Sheila of sheilazcrochetz said:
"I deep condition my hair by clarifying my deep conditioner: 4 tablespoons of the deep conditioner, 2 tablespoons of Jojoba oil & 1 teaspoon of essential oil... perferrably peppermint oil
After shaving, I make sugar scrub to exfoliate: 4oz jar, fill with turbinado sugar or regular sugar, essential oil & carrier oils (sometimes I use EVOO), mix well and presto.
I no longer buy body lotion, and make massage oil instead or I make body butter.
I designate a 2-3 hours on the weekend for me time."
The rest of us are flying by the seat of our pants: Shannon gets highlights a few times a year, Trena was reminded to get her eyelashes dyed (great idea!!) and Sigrid has her husband cut her hair. Let's all take some time this weekend to soak in the tub, paint our nails and eat bon bons.
