I think treating yourself to some pampering is a good thing. It’s something that I’ve really been depriving myself of for many years, and am now just discovering it. I’ve been reading articles about how guys are becoming more aware of self-image, and are making changes to enhance their appearance, whether it be a change of attire, makeup, or just attitude. I’ve had success with the whole acrylic nails thing, but I want to do more. I was checking out some of that “bare minerals” stuff online, and a friend of mine said that Costco has a whole set of that for under $30. No, I’m not making any plans of re-living my “glory days” of the Denver call center stories – just some slight changes in the way I do things these days.
On the fashion side, I’m straying more from the “CFM pumps” and exotic boots for some styles that are trendier and work better with what I’m trying to achieve. Payless and eBay are great for this type of shopping, since most retailers haven’t realized there is life about Size 12, so it might be a bit longer in that regard. I may have to do a 3rd article on my website about that.
I’ve taken up a new hobby – posting on Yahoo Answers in the beauty & style section. I’ve actually received two 10-point best answer awards already! Have I missed another calling? I’m getting more into my art, as well as my love of design and fashion, so perhaps something huge will come from it! I can always hope!
