Editors Note: This post is brought to you by Bee Sugared A Fresher Way to Feel For Men and Women
It’s been a year full of personal revelations…the most recent which came to me just these past few weeks.
Feeling pretty for the sake of feeling pretty.
Now stay with me here, because it’s not as shallow as it sounds.
As a teenager, I wanted to look pretty for the guys.
When I was married, looking pretty was for him.
And now being single again, the motivation to look pretty for a potential new guy is strong.
While there is certainly nothing wrong with trying to look good in hopes of finding romance once more, for me, it was short-lived.
Dating is just not possible right now. With my four young rascals, homeschooling, finishing my psych degree, and building a writing career, there is no time to commit to romantic relationships.
Ok, so back to the primping. So if my monthly facials and hot pink manicures are no longer in effort to look good for a potential mate…why should I bother?
I’m contemplating this as I was invited to Bee Sugared in Newport Beach for some sugar waxing. As I’m in the cozy lemongrass scented room, listening to Ella Fitzgerald and getting my eyebrows expertly shaped, I realize that probably the only one that may notice my extra clean eyebrows will be my sister.
But that’s ok because I’ll notice it.
I was offered to get my bikini sugared too, which I almost declined, but then I thought I’d do it for me. Just because it makes me feel pretty.
I know it seems sort of silly, but it’s a first for me…to feel pretty simply for the sake of feeling pretty.
For no one else and for no other reason but just to feel it.
And indeed sugaring at Bee Sugared makes one feel pretty.
(psst, they do facials too).
