    I, personally, am waiting for that second trimester "radiance" to kick in...when my skin and hair glow and I feel great! But...I am not holding my breath.

    So, what are you all doing to make yourself feel a bit more...attractive?

    I scheduled my hair color "touch-up" for next week. That typically picks me up a bit...damn dark roots!

    post your ideas and suggestions. :dust:

    Hehe, I'm the same.
    I'm not feeling that 'glowing, energetic, sexy' thing yet at all. And all my pregnancy books say I should :(
    I think I might need to get my blondness put back thru my hair...I've let my natural color come thru a bit more and it looks good, but I miss being really 'blond'.
    I got my hair cut a few weeks back...and sometimes I like it sometimes I don't.

    I just don't feel very sexy lately at all :(

    DH bought me some lingere last week (I think he's noticed I've just been a dit down) and that made me feel better, but it didn't last long.

    I'm only 15 weeks so I'm not even big yet....now I'm worried about what I'll b like when I'm 7+ months pregnant!

    I just stick with regularly getting my eyebrows threaded, wearing blusher and mascara. If my face looks pretty, I feel pretty!

    Sounds really silly but I love it when I have time to spend ages shaving my legs so that I don't miss any bits. Then I exfoliate and put on moisturiser so that they are super soft. It just makes me feel loads better :)

    Just little things like shaving my legs, painting my toe nails/finger nails. Buying new make up, really want to dye my hair too to spruce me up. I had my hair cut last week and I don't like it, OH said it was too short last night too. :cry:

    I always make sure my hair is fixed nicely and my makeup is on. Just those two things help immensely.

    I wash my hair more often than I usually would (usual is every 4 days as I got dry hair) and now is every 2 to 3. Nothing is nicer than having fresh hair. I also like to fake a pregnancy glow with Posie Tint from Benefit. ;)

    these are all great ideas! i am trying to learn to be better with makeup and hair...typically i don't pay too much attention to either one...but i think it would make me feel better to look a bit more pulled together.

    I keep my hair colored but change it up from time to time, get it cut and always wear makeup but it's never the same thing ever day.

    I treat myself once a week to a face pack, do my nails and paint my toe nails and pamper myself :)

    I had a pamper session this morning, soak in the bath with a face pack...so relaxing! Had my hair cut this afternoon which was long overdue and then did a manicure in front of the telly this evening! I am feeling rather good about myself tonight, but sooo tired after a long day of relaxing! Lol! If only every day could be a saturday!

    Keeping on top of my eyebrows i think that helps immensely! Iv been meaning to dye my hair for a few weeks going to do it tomorrow while I have time!
    Benefit spin the bottle foundation and a bit of blush and mascara! Legs and underarms shaved and nails done! I think spending a few minutes to out your outfit together is good too rather than just throwing on the nearest thing! And don't wear things that don't fit!
