WWtKW: Pamper Yourself

Happy Wednesday!

I'm linking up with Mamarazzi, Crazymama of 6 and Queso for WWtKW again this week.  The questions come from Crazymama and are all about pampering yourself.


1.  What is your go-to color if you paint your nails?  Do your toes and fingernails match?
This is kind of a funny question for me.  See...when you have over 300 (*gasp*) color choices at your beck and call, it's hard to have a go-to color.  Seriously.  When I get tired of my current mani, I pick whatever catches my fancy at that moment.  As for the matchy-matchy...that never happens.

2.  Have you ever gone for a mani/pedi?  How often do you go?
The last time I went for a mani?  I can't even remember.  However, I can tell you I do my nails 2-3 times a week at home.  My last pedi was probably about 6 months ago.  I usually do my own every 2 weeks or so.  I think I'm pretty good at doing my own nails and since I have all the supplies already at home, why pay somebody to do it?

3.  Do you color your hair?  Do you have a salon do it or do you do it yourself?
I hadn't colored my hair for a long Nate was born.  But, all of a sudden, I got a wild hair and decided to do it myself.  I liked the color enough, but I wanted more.  So I employed the assistance of my bestie to put in teal streaks.  It didn't go so well...
And then I decided I needed a cut, so I got a cut and the salon was running a special, so I got it re-dyed.  Usually I'll do it at home but the sale was for 50% off - how can you pass THAT up?

LOVED this color but anybody who does their hair in reds knows how high-maintenance it is.  It's been about 6 weeks now and it's much more brown than red. *sad*

4.  Facials...have you ever had one?
Yep.  But, again, it's been YEARS!  I used to work in a dermatology office and we'd get facials for a super reduced price.  Can't beat a good deal!

5.  Would you, or have you ever, done Botox?
Nope.  Never have.  Never will.

6.  Beauty knows now pain.  Do you believe in waxing, electrolysis, eyelash extensions, anti-aging creams, micro-dermabrasion, peels, etc?
I've done it all - including being a guinea pig for laser hair removal (*ouch*).  OK...maybe not *all* (I haven't done electrolysis or lash extensions) but I have had my lashes dyed and I've had more than a few micro-dermabrasions.  I say, if you wanna do it, do it.  Who's to tell you not to?  And if it makes you feel better about yourself, why not?!

you have awesome nails.and with all that selection, why go pay for it. you are so right!

somehow i can't manage to do my own without messing it up. i never want anyone to look to close at mine.

you have fabulous hair. mine is kind of the same style. love it.

you can't beat a bargain. my friend, wants to do all my stuff for super cheap, so i'll let her. thus the microderm and the eyelash extensions. otherwise i can't rationalize the money spent. but i'm all about a bargain.

thanks for linking up.

Yummy!!! That Red!!!! I keep toying with the idea of doing red again...but that's it. I think about it for months and months before I go for it.

I've done it all too, almost. I used to sign up for dermatology research groups. So I've gotten quite a few cutting edge stuff done.
