The Wednesday Question

What's your favorite beauty ritual, and why?

I have many, but I think my current favorites are polishing my nails and grooming my brows. I love doing my nails because it relaxes me. I can shut out the world and just focus on that for a while, and who doesn't love a fresh manicure? I love grooming my brows when I can take my time with it (I hate doing it when I'm in a rush) because there's such a sense of accomplishment after a good brow-grooming. In my case, it's like climbing K2--it's painful and it requires great determination and focus, but it's so worth it in the end. Ha!

  4. I love doing my hair, it actually relaxes me. .my hair is really curly and it's always a two day process... wash the night before and prep it.. braid and sleep..once it's dry, then I'll flat Iron it the next day in small sections.. comes out beautiful. I also love to do my nails.

  5. Hi, G.! I've been a silent reader on your blog for a while now, and I just have to say it is AMAZING!!! :D Anyway, I really enjoy doing facials, if that counts. I wash my face, exfoliate it with a washcloth, sometimes steam my face, then do a facemask and my skin feels great afterwards! I also totally agree about grooming eyebrows. One time I did over pluck them though and boy, I'm never doing that again!

  8. Doing my mani/pedi on Sunday's evenings always relaxes me. It's the soaking my feet in Epson salts and essential oils, the bubbles, the selecting new colors because I'm not into matchy- matchy or nail art. Usually my toe nails get the brightest color, and for my finger nails I like to keep them more subdue, but still colorful.

  9. Not so sure it counts as a "beauty" ritual, I guess it's more of a daily (sometimes twice) hygeine thing...but I love to take my time in the shower. Nothing "resets" and refreshes like washing away the day and/or night and all the after shower things that go along w/ it...lotions, potions, and FRAGRANCE!! Perfume is something I feel naked without, I love chosing a scent of the day. I also love doing my own nails, especially a pedicure as I feel like only me, myself and I could really get in there and clean everything up just so. I take a good 1&1/2 hrs, but it is so worth it, as long as I have good tunes in the b/g and tea or coffee I'm all set! :)
