i get mine waxed but not shaped or anything, just cleaned up. i HATE when they make them too thin. I also hate that they always try and get me to get my nails done and i think i am the only girl on the planet that cant stand getting her nails done and i especially hate getting pedicures. lol

I'm so jealous of you girls with huge/multiple closets! I have a walk-in but its pretty tiny and STUFFED! I also don't have a dresser, just clothes crammed in those plastic stackable drawers. It makes finding stuff really hard! Though, sometimes, I like the feeling of shopping in your own closet. Like, "Hey I totally forgot I had this!"
As for eyebrows, I prefer to keep mine fairly thin. I like my brows to look natural but I feel like a more defined arch frames my face better. Right now I'm letting them thicken up though. If you wax/pluck too much too often, it won't grow back and then your only options are thin or thinner. So I'm trying to avoid that.
I don't know if we've talked about this on here... I think it was discussed on the sex thread. But have any of you ladies done DIY bikini waxes? I really prefer waxing to shaving but I haven't gotten brave enough to wax "down there" myself. I've gotten waxes at the salon and its not too bad, and I don't really have a problem waxing my own legs. But there's just something really masochistic about waxing your own vajayjay... thoughts?
I also never get manicures - i don't like the look on me and I am also a fellow nailbiter.
I get my brows waxes 1-2 times a year and maintain with Tweezerman, brown brow powder from Maybelline, a brow brush from Trish McEvoy and brow gel from body Shop, e.l.f. or wherever I can find it cheap.
As for closets... ya'll KNOW I love me some clothes but I live in a house built in the '40s and my closet is the size of most coat closets (and don't even have a coat closet!) and I share it with the husband. I have learned to "monkey-hang" hangers, store out of season clothing in my attic and be verrrry particular with what comes into my home and gets treasured real estate! ;D

^^^same closet issues here. My house was built in the 20s. Three bedrooms and the tiny closets. I got a second rack to put in mine to double up. They didn't have one small enough at Lowes so I had to cut one down. One of my roomate's closets is only 1 1/5 feet wide. She has a stand alone rack in the corner of her room. The house is beautiful, but the closets really suck. Tips for extra storage: 1. I use those under the bed storage things for my off season clothes 2. I put my bed diagonal in a corner so I can store stuff behind it. Works great

Good Morning everybody. I have posted two or three small replies on the girly thread but this will be my first big post.
I have a big skin issue and i need some help.
I was using face wash for a couple weeks that had acne medicine in it. My skin started getting really dry so i stopped using it. Well... now my checks are all red, blotchy and peely!! Where my skin peels is raw and hurts. I have stopped wearing make-up and have been slathering on mosituriser hoping it will help but all its done is made my not irritated skin break out.
I would be so so so so thankful for anyone who has an idea to make it better.
Love you all and I am so glad a thread like this exists.
Good Morning all...I am such a lurker and decided to say hello. I have been reading this thread for a few months now. You all are so nice and informative. I am 32 and from Asheville NC. I am a bigger lady so some of these tips on dressing and links have been really helpful. This will be my second Roo!
Kat, It sucks going thru all that with your skin. The biggest issue is the peely skin. I dont have a specific product in mind but I do know that rosehip oil in natural products would be something to look into. If you have an organic/all natural type store near you, go there and look at the skin care products with rosehip suppliments. Also, try to give your face a break from anything at least over night and let your pores breath. Just wash with something real mild then let it go...most moisturisers just cause more problems if your not careful. Hope this helps.
Welcome to the party, ElektricSunflower and kittyroo32! The more the merrier, in here.
Elektric, I had the same thing happen to me. By coincidence, I already had a doctor's appointment. Mind you, not a dermatologist, so this was just a general practitioner. He thought Neosporin would help. A light layer. It seemed to calm things a bit and moisturize as well. Probably helped the broken skin fight infection, too. Might not be the ultimate answer, but it did help me.
I can soooo relate on the closet woes. I have one louvered door closet in my apartment. Period. That's all. No coat closet. Nothing. The only rule in my place is do not open that door! People could get hurt if the zillion sweaters on the top shelf decide to make a break for it.

ok girls...now that my hair is considerably shorter, i've found that i don't have near the volume i thought i would when i let my hair dry naturally. i'll probably blow it dry when i'm actually going somewhere, but i've always been very hesitant to put more heat than necessary on my hair, so i don't want to have to blow it dry every time.
what are some good volumizing shampoos and conditioners? and aren't there volumizing sprays you can use after the shower?
i'm getting into a totally new hair care realm, so i'm a little lost
I use Matrix Amplify shampoo. They have a version for color-treated hair, as well as a spray-on/leave-in conditioner (which I use, in addition to the regular rinse-out conditioner). But, since it's Matrix, best to find somewhere other than a salon to buy it. Or go to one of those "It's a salon at a mall, but they're making all their money off of selling the fancy shampoos for less" places. It's about as expensive as any salon line. No moreso. There may be other, better lines, but if you have color-treated hair, this is pretty much the only one out there that I know of.
