    So, i've totally neglected myself of late.

    On the outside i'm still the same - I always wear make up to work and always make sure my hairs nice but underneath all that something is lurking....:blush:

    Until sun I hadn't shaved my legs for 4 weeks and being the wolfwoman that I am it was a sight I can tell ya!!!

    So I decided to have a word with myself and agreed it was time to spend some time "sorting myself out", or so I thought.....

    I couldn't shave my legs properly!!!!!!!!:shrug:

    I truly was gutted as I wanted the silky smooth legs that I used to get and nope, uneven, hair in places I cant reach..I could go on.

    Hubby's working sat so i've got the house to myself, I am determined that when he comes home that i'll be all shiny and new again.

    Help me ladies....How can I have a pamper session (on a budget) and really make an effort???? Its been a while since hubby had my 'ahem' attention and i'd like to feel a bit more pretty again.:hugs:

    xx

    Oh good luck! lol

    I am finding it a mission to even be bothered with make up nowadays! I always find a nice bath with lovely scrubs / soaps / moisturisers does wonders for making me feel better.

    As for your legs have you tried something like immac??

    No suggestions other than to second a nice bath - I can sympathise with you entirely though, its about time I did something about my legs but I'm not quite sure how! I'm glad its tights and leggings weather :)

    I agree with getting a new shampoo and using a leg cream. If you want to tend to your lady garden, as well, use a hand mirror (or like me, place the whole damned mirrored cabinet on the floor :haha:) and have a go at it with a good shaving cream.

    Get an exfoliating scrub and scrubber to use, have a bath with some beads/fizzy balls. If you can reach your feet, give yourself a full pedicure. If not, soak your feet for a bit and attempt to scrub away any old skin. And get a peeling mask! I personally feel awesome after using peeling masks. :D

    I used a sea salt body scrub last night and it really helped exfoliate and made my skin feel super soft.

    If you can splurge for a massage and maybe a wax it would totally help you feel better.
