Ive never thought of myself as a girly girl. I used to love dressing up for a night on the town when I was a teen, but somehow I lost my voom and sometimes I even find it’s a bit of an effort. I reckon its definately the self esteem thing………..why make an effort when you place such a low value on yourself. You adopt the ‘who cares’ attitude and just go with the flow. Thinking back a few years I remember a period where I did NOTHING to make myself look attractive. I stopped colouring and cutting my hair. Kept my nails short. Didn’t bother with fashion or new makeup …..really just let it all go. As a teen and even a young adult I really used to indulge myself and I loved it. I used to own a variety of aromatherapy oils and most nights included a wonderful aroma therapy bath including the oils I felt in the mood for. Rose is my absolute favourite, closely followed by geranium…..mmmmmmmmm, heavenly. Actually I think smelly stuff is really my ultimate indulgence. I love perfume LOVE IT. I used to have at least ten (yes I was spoilt as a teen) And everyday I would choose one that chose my mood.
Anyway, somehow I lost all of that and since then I have had periods of inspiration and then let it slip again. Money was definately a reason, but I also lost that desire to look good and feel good, I’m not sure where it went. Lately I am really feeling the importance of indulging myself and looking after myself. Through therapy I am working on my self esteem as it is really low. It may seem cheesy, but it really seems to help a bit to indulge in the girly stuff.
I started with my ultra indulgent bath on a Monday night and I am loving it. I’ve got myself some geranium, lavender and chamomile oil and I am just loving the aroma therapy baths. Its becoming more than just a Monday thing. Yesterday I bought myself some new nail polish and last night I sat and painted my nails. Such simple things that actual make me feel a bit better about myself.
Its also my birthday this month and I have put together a list of perfumes for my husband. At the moment I only have Cliniqu.e Happy and would really love some Pois.on…..mmmm a lovely winter scent. I also ask for some bling bling stuff. Like this mouse…..
So bloggers, tell me about your girly indulgances.
