low maintenance program

Shaved my legs today, toes to crotch. Underarms, too. Even trimmed and sculpted my happy place. Sea salt scrubbed and exfoliated. Tweazed and shaped. Blew dry and curled. Moisturized, shimmered, and even bronzed. Put on my face, viagra'd my lashes, and adorned my limbs with jewels and bangles.

Stood in front of the mirror and could see nothing but the missing ring.

All dolled up. All supple and shiny. The faint smell of honeysuckle wafting over me. The shimmer catching the sun coming through the blinds.

For who? For what?

That's two hours of my life I'll never get back.

For yourself?

You did it for YOU.

You needed to show yourself you´re beautiful, because you´ve started to doubt it...

Been there one too many times.

I think that is awesome! Some of the best advice I've ever heard was to make sure you are not just taking care of, but pampering yourself, especially when life is really rough. Even if it is something as little as putting on some body lotion, it matters a lot.

Thank You for the follow.
I bet you looked beautiful! Sometimes it's fun to get dolled up just because!
