How often do you pamper your self?

I really want to take a few hours just to get my hair, nails, eyebrows done. Does anyone do this? Do you do it on a regular bases and if so where do you put your children?

  • Ladies, if you don't pamper yourself, you're missing out! And you can do it on any budget. I pamper myself in many ways every month. I'm athletic and I workout and run almost every day. So, I get a deep tissue massage twice a month and I feel like a million bux afterwards! Sometimes, I even hang out at the Burke Williams Spa for a few hours while my SO has my kid playing golf on the weekend. I maintain my nails but get them done about every 8-10 days. It's also important for me to get my hair done by a stylist every 6-8 weeks. I always have it professionally colored by a color artist. To me, how you present yourself represents what kind of person you are. Whether your look is high or low maintenance, I like to keep my SO's eyes on me and having a firm azz doesn't hurt either. Now, go out and get your Brazillian Blowout girls!

  • No I don't do anything for myself... either we can't afford it or I actually feel guilty (lol, my SO says I'm nuts) because that is money that I may need for the kids for some random emergency until I get paid again. Or I feel I could have spent the money doing something with the kids and that's usually what wins.

  • I don't do that. The extent on me pampering myself is taking a shower, and doing my own nails.

  • Nope never. A haircut is a treat! I do my nails, color my hair at home and almost never buy anything for myself.
