Maintenance Minute

Do you ever look in the mirror and think, "Wow, some regular maintenance is long overdue!" My eyebrows are wretched, my skin looks dull, my nails are ragged and the paint on my toes looks like it has been stuck on a dock in Cape Cod for 20 winters.....I don't mean this as a self-deprecating statement but more of a reminder that spending some time and a little money on yourself can do wonders for your overall feelings about yourself. I'm not just referring to looks but the feelings How pretty do you feel when you step out of the salon or nail shop? More importantly, how relaxed and rejuvenated do you feel?

Okay, I'll admit getting your hair done can be stressful. I have been trying to cut costs and have been visiting the Aveda Hair School in Westwood and while they have done a good job both times, I still have a twinge of nervousness each time.

Getting my eyebrows done totally changes the way I see my face. Having a facial makes me feel so fresh, my pores are clean and ready to start anew. Even something like watching SATC inspires me to glam it up a little and wear those strappy 4" heels I always find an excuse not to wear. Running 8.5 miles the other day felt amazing because I kept telling myself it's 90% mental and your body will follow and it worked.

So ladies, go get a pedicure or get your eyebrows done, do something just for you. You deserve it. If you are like me and on a budget, do your own nails but get your brows done at a great place.
