Remember setting your hair with brush rollers and pink picks or metal clips? That was before hot rollers and before curling irons. I have all three here, but the rollers are now pick-less and clip-less. I used to do well with hot rollers but my hair was much shorter then. I usually dry my hair and touch it up with a curling iron.
This afternoon we are going to a wedding. I considering having my hair done, but I don't currently have a stylist and didn't feel like experimenting. So here I sit, typing in my robe, hair in large rollers, and with the shoes on I will probably wear this afternoon. I'm still deciding between two pair. I'd wear one of each pair in the house but I would walk kind of funny. Funnier than I already do.
I'd like to think my setting job was as neat as this (and that I was this attractive)
The consolation is that I don't look like this charming woman!
Never having had a facial before, I can't say that the woman who did mine was extraordinary, but I can say that I loved it. The one hour facial included (quoting from their web site) "cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, face, neck, and shoulder massage, mask, toner, and moisturizer". Ahhhhhh. It was relaxing and my skin looks and feels so nice! Even my arms. I didn't realize how dry my skin was.
Does that sound silly? My mom didn't use creams and lotions so I didn't grow up with that example. My skin was oily enough for years that I didn't need (or didn't think I needed) anything extra. I took my skin for granted. I plan to lotion up regularly now, making regular use of the facial moisturizer that I only used on a hit and miss basis before. The rest of me needs an economy size jar or bottle of youth replenisher.
I had a pedicure yesterday too. Same tech did the pedi and I liked her technique there as well. The callouses and dry skin are gone without me going crazy over the pumice stone. My feet are very ticklish and sometimes the stone is almost torture.
We discussed gel manicures but I'm not convinced they are right for me. While the polish lasts longer than a regular manicure, it isn't expected to last like it did on acrylics (been there, done that, not going back) and I don't want to schedule the time and expense for manis as often as my polish would chip and dictate it needed re-doing. Do you have the gel or laquer polish that requires a UV or LED light to sure it?
Speaking of polish, I should go finish my hair so that I have time to apply a coat of light pink to my fingernails. Nothing like attending a wedding to bring out the girly in me!
