I’m not going quite that far, but I’ve done a fair bit:

– Expensive skincare

– Regular facials

– Teeth whitening

– Waxing

– HD Brows

– Individual eyelash extensions

– Shellac manicure and pedicure

I’ve enjoyed all of it, though.

Botox, Latisse, Juvederm and Retin A thus far.  I also had a lot of dental problems and got a full mouth reconsruction.  I went with the whitest shade they had.

I am much older than most of you and soooo grateful we have so many good and affordable options these days for women who want to go that route.

Wow you have a lot to do on your list! Suprisingly, I am doing Lasik after the wedding and can’t wait. Though I’m doing it for convenience sake. I work in an OR and with the constant air flow my eyes get so dry and irritating. Plus I hate contacts and glasses.

I’d be more afraid of the Latisse, I feel the risks associated with that stuff is more than I’m willing to bargin for.

@Ms. Flowers:  Girl, I feel you!  I’m not going to lie, I do consider myself vain in that I spend a lot of time and money on my appearance.  I have breast implants (which I think are like a sparkly diamond in that they never get old and I continue to be amazed by them, haha), I spend quite a bit on beauty products, I get no chip manicures, I have self tanning products that I use at home, i get bikini waxes every 4 weeks.  I’ve had braces before so my teeth are fine, but I do use crest whitening strips every once in a while.  I’ve used a similar product to latisee (called MD lash) which made my eyelashes grow a lot!  

I also eat really healthy and work out so that my body is where I want it to be and I think you have more options in picking out clothes so you’re not worried about covering up problem areas.

@Ms. Flowers:  I definitely want to do Laser Hair Removal…no more shaving!

Just a quick thing to tell you: I just had laser eye surgery a month ago and it was the single best thing I have ever done for myself. It was quick, painless, minimal side effects, and I couldn’t be happier! I don’t know where you’re from, but I’d be happy to refer you to my surgeon if you have questions. The important thing is to do your research and be comfortable with the person performing the procedure.

I think the only thing I would want to do would be Lasik. I am honestly not bothered about the other things, you’d be lucky to get me to wear anything more than mascara and eyeliner haha

I’ve had

-breast implants

-laser hair removal on bikini

– I get my brows done

-whitened my teeth with Crest White strips

– I want invisilign..I had braces, so for the most part, my teeth are straight. I just have a couple of problem spots. 

-mani and pedis

I’d really love lasik, because my eyesight is AWFUL, but the possibility of something going wrong scares the crap out of me.

@Ms. Flowers:  MD Lash is amazing.  2 of my sorority sisters used it, and their eyelashes were SO much longer.  I was skeptical, but I tried it and even my FH (who doesn’t really notice things like that) commented on how much longer my lashes were!  And I really think it’s ok to be vain, in that you want to present yourself in a polished manner.  I think there’s a difference b/t being vain and being superficial/shallow, and the former is not a bad quality at all IMO. Cool

I would really like to get laser hair removal. Especially on my upper lip. I have also always been self conscious about my nose, so I wouldn’t mind a nose job.

@Ms. Flowers:  The ones I’m having seem pretty low-risk. They’re just temporary ones rather than the semi-permanent ones.
