  • well...i know i need to dress nice and put on makeup and fix my hair more often but my dh is the one who makes me feel good about myself, last night while making love he said he had to look at my face to "get off" i thought that was nice, that my face, not my boobs or rest of my body, made him happy

  • i feel sexy'ist when i have freshly shaven legs and a cute night gown or nice pj's. since im mostly in my pj's i really focus on pj's that i love.
    also try getting yourself some candies and dont share with anyone!
    maybe some strawberry choclates and champagne for yourself.
    ive learned to do the little things for myself.getting my nails done or hair done every few months or so. treat yourself.

  • thats sweet anon :13:) for me its taking time for myself, whether that be for exercising..or yoga. yoga makes mefeel great about myself as well as helping my body out. i do wear makeup but not too much, andi like to try new things with my hair..but mainly its my DH that makes me feel good.

  • I'll go every once in a while and get a facial or a massage. I also love to take a good bubble bath with a ton of candles and some champagne, it helps me relax!

  • I feel good about myself and sexy every day. I dont do make-up and I love me the way I am. Hubby tells me how sexy I am everyday even if my hair is in a pony tail and Im in grungy cloths. He boosts my self esteem on a daily basis as I do his. Ya have to LOVE yourself before you can even like another human being.

  • Eat right, keep my weight down and keep up with exercising. I know now that the older I get, I can't slack at all. Even if I just walk for 30 min, I have to do some kind of exercise. If I don't work out for a week and start eating badly I see an immediate difference! I feel tired, and start to gain weight and it shows in my clothes and skin. And my mood is terrible. It's amazing, the difference.
