Of course I had noticed that I haven't had a pedicure in more months than I can count, but neither have I given myself a home mani/pedi in quite a while.
Well, we were already cutting it close and so I rummaged around to try to find a color so I could do that magic trick of painting over the existing polish.
Raise your hand if you have pulled out that trick before!
I didn't think I was alone!
But get this....I couldn't find any polish. Nothing.
I had recently cleaned out under my sink and had thrown out lots of polishes and had evidently organized it all so well that I couldn't find anything!
My husband was calling for me to get going, the kids were already strapped in the car, I couldn't fnd any shoes that would look as well without changing outfits and I haven't gotten to organizing my closet yet!
So I went to church. With unpolished toes. Not just unpolished. Chipped.
Luckily the shoes were only peep toed, but still.
Mom, if you are reading this, I am sorry. Totally goes against how I was brought up!
I seriously was very embarrased. I kept trying to hide my feet. And the worst part was that I had new, pretty shoes.
So I came to the decision that it's about time I staop neglecting my beauty manegemant.
When I was in college and highschool I took care of myself.
I didn't rely on spa's and the nail salon, I didn't have money for that then and I can't justify it (or find the time for it) now.
So, I am on the mission to do the same...to take time for me and my skin, my feet, my nails, my hair, etc.
I am on a mission to prevent, to shrink and to clear up.
So bring on the face cream, the masques, the cucumbers, the polishes and conditioners, the excercise (gasp)!
I am going to follow the rules of Femininity!
Every Wednesday I will have maybe a tip, or challenge or just a recap of what I am doing to keep up with my femininity.
This week...Shrinking my pores. I'm off to Ulta to find a good Peel and Clay Mask!
And now I leave you with the sweet song from Summer Magic....
