What makes you feel beautiful/sexy/pretty?

I often get depressed with not feeling pretty enough and it ruins my mood for the rest of the day and sometimes days. I hate it! Its been like this since I was really young. I have 4 kids and I'm a stay at home mom who doesn't get much time for myself. I get to the point where I dont even want dh looking at me. So what makes you feel attractive? This sucks!!!!

  • I feel the same, getting my hair cut or doing my makeup helps some.

  • A tan... I use jergens natural glow... and having my toes painted at ALL times... I was raised to think it's a must.. lol I'm 24 and my mom will tell me to fix myself if I'm due for some polish touch ups. A good bra makes me feel pretty stunning and keeping my eyebrows waxed to perfection. I don't have alot of time and I do it all myself so I don't feel guilty about the cost. It's hard to find time so I make it something fun for my daughter (4 1/2) and I to do together maybe once a week she calls it "make-up-over night"

  • tanning. Vitamin d just blows off any depresssion you are experiencing. Getting a pedicure and manicure are good too. Fake eyelash extensions are awesome. But if the glue gets into your eyes watch out. It burns.............I honestly stopped because of the adhesive. But they make you look and feel so much prettier................

  • Make up makes me feel better. I use to skip the make routine since I work at home. But now it gives me a new attitude if i put some on.

  • I know exactly how u ffeel. I stay at home with 2 and i have NO time for just "ME". I literally cannot use the restroom by myself! When ever we do plan to go out, im stuck giving the kids a bath, getting them dressed, and make sure that they are satisied WAY BEFORE i start to get ready and the hubby is sittng on the couch the whole time and wonders why i take 2 hours to get ready. But what makes me feel good is to do YOU stuff when the kids are napping or watching a movie. When my 2 year old is sitting on the couch, watching a movie, ill sit there and straighten my hair (as funny as it sounds), but it works. Even when i have my hair straighten, i feel a lot better. Then put some foundation on just for the hell of it!!!
