Inspired by a few threads here but not sure on where to start to transform myself over the next twelve months to a less grumpier, healthier me. I'm there with the basics (drink more water, cleanse daily) but other bits am not sure of how often I red to do to get on top of? So can anyone advise how often I should be: Going to gym? Having highlights? Having a shellac manicure? Teeth whitened?
Anything else that I can maintain regularly to make myself look/feel better about my appearance?
Gym as often as you like, of you find it enjoyable. I hated going so stopped and instead watch what I eat more carefully etc. Highlights, depends, every 3 months or whenever you want them done. Shellac lasts up to 2 weeks I believe, so maybe every fortnight or so. Teeth whitened I don't know about, I wouldn't think very often though.
As for anything else you can do, I don't know really, Eyebrow thread and tint maybe?
Eyebrows shaped and tinted Follow slimming world lost 3stone 9 so far I've got 1 stone 5 to get to target. Bit of fake tan when I'm feeling pale Make up everyday Shellac manicure every two weeks Paint toenails Blow dry hair every couple of days when the kids are in bed Botox twice a year
Things I would like to do in the new year-
Try and find time to exercise Drink more water Stick to my skincare regime, I tend to do it for a few weeks then when skin looks better I stop
I have my hair cut every couple of months but don't colour as I can't keep up with the roots, my dcs are still quite young (10,5,2 and 1) so maybe when they get a bit older and I get greyer! I might.
I had semi-perm falsies for 3 months and decided to let them all cone out to heck condition of lashes -they are none-existent little stumps! To be honest it doesn't bother me too much as they were rubbish to start with but might be one to miss if you have nice lashes.
Other thing would be moisturiser with a hint of tan?
