This *might* be a girlie post today.
(Waving good-bye to all my male readers!)
Since I returned from my trip, I've been busy getting my life back in order.
It has involved very mundane activities such as blah, blah, blah UNPACKING, and blah, blah, blah, LAUNDRY and blah, blah, blah GROCERY SHOPPING, etc.
I also realized I, myself, was sorely in need of a little maintenance.
I hesitate to even mention this fact because it's quite possible you:
1) Currently think I'm flawless and require no maintenance.
2) Will forever brand me as an "OC Woman" if I tell you I do indeed partake of much needed maintenance from time to time.
It occurred to me yesterday, as I ran from appointment to appointment, perhaps I'm a little more Orange County than I'd like to admit. I suppose this place is a bit insidious and invades the personalities even of those of us who try to fight it off.
As an example, I had a woman yank out my pubic hairs again yesterday. With each and every rrrriiiiiiiiippppppp I gasped in pain.
It's bathing suit season in Orange County.
It was 80F/26.7C at my house yesterday afternoon.
I wonder if Brazilian Bikini Waxes are the "must have" of cooter grooming outside of Southern California? My guess is they aren't.
As a side note, my waxing salon has now come out with "Baldy Bucks."
Oh yes, they have!
Each Brazilian Wax earns their patrons one "Baldy Buck." After nine Brazilian waxes a customer has earned enough Baldy Bucks to get one FREE Brazilian Bikini Wax. I'm sure you'll be interested to hear I only have one more paid Brazilian until I, too, am the recipient of a FREE Baldy Buck Brazilian Bikini Wax.
Only in Orange County?
After my coochie grooming, I was off to do something about the talons growing out of my feet. I had intended to get a pedicure before going to Santa Barbara, but then realized the sand would ruin new polish. Because I postponed this particular maintenance, my toenails had grown to epic lengths by the time I went in yesterday.
They're looking slightly better now.
I had them painted purple to match my hair.
(Well, to match the purple streak in my hair.)
A girl's got to coordinate her look, right?
Actually, the pedicure was also a priority because I want to wear the new shoes I bought in Santa Barbara.
Aren't they cute?
They wouldn't look good with talons poking out of them – hence, the need for a pedicure.
I live in sandals of one sort or another year round. These are made by Cole Haan and they were on sale (!) for $80 off their normal price. I love that they have a not-too-high heel.
They're perfect to slide into and wear with jeans when I need something a little nicer than my usual flip flops.
How about you?
Have you earned your Baldy Bucks yet?
Do you have a favorite nail polish color for spring and/or summer?
Have you found a perfect pair of sandals for summer yet?
