taking care of (lady) business

One thing I love about California is their emphasis on health. Getting a massage is not a luxury but a necessity. If you sit at a desk all day long, it’s just considered a cost of health to get a massage once a month. Girls in California spend mucho effort on skincare, waxing, nails, tanning, hair, fitness, and all around looking good. To them, it’s not a costly splurge but just a part of life. I’ve always believed that you gotta spend a little to get a little. When you spend money on a beauty regime, the way you feel and the added benefits to self-esteem are priceless. I am no stranger to pampering myself, but even I feel like I am not up to par with these Cali natives. I am trying to continue to adopt the mindset that taking the time and money to look good really does help you feel better inside and therefore boosts everything on the outside. I believe it.

Check out a funny difference I found. This is the waxing menu at my old salon in Minnesota:


They’ve definitely expanded over the years (now they offer one option for men), but it’s nothing over the top. Here is the waxing menu for my new salon in San Diego:

Jiminy Christmas, that’s a lot of wax. And WOW! 4 package combinations for a Brazilian. FRONT AND BACK. (for you noobs – a Brazilian is an ALL OFF everything goes wax). Funny how the men’s prices are so much higher.

Ok, I’m off to take care of my lady business. On the menu for me: a brow wax, facial, and a mani. Relaxation here I come. 🙂
