Oh, what I’d give for a day at the Spa…

It’s We Want to Know Wednesday, and how did the lovely hostesses know that I’ve been longing for a day at the Spa?!  This week’s questions are all about pampering!

Linking up with Mamarazzi, Queso & Crazymama.

Here are this week’s questions:

{1} What is your go to color if you paint your nails? do your toes and fingernails match?
{2} Have you ever gone for a mani/pedi? how often do you go?
{3} Do you color your hair? do you have a salon do it or do you do it yourself?
{4} Facials...have you ever had one?
{5} Would you or have you ever done botox?
{6} Beauty knows no pain, do you believe in waxing, electrolisis, eyelash extentions, anti-aging creams, micro-dermabrasion, peels, botox?

My answers:

{1} What is your go to color if you paint your nails? do your toes and fingernails match?  I like to switch it up!  In the past year, I’ve developed a nail polish fetish.  I simply can’t go to the store without picking up a new colour or two.  My collection of polishes has grown vastly, and it’s quite a range of colours!  Currently, I’ve got Revlon’s “Black Star” on my fingers, and Sally Hansen’s Complete Manicure “Raisin the Bar” on my toes…they don’t match, obviously!

{2} Have you ever gone for a mani/pedi? how often do you go?  I’ve had one mani and one pedi in my lifetime!  Loved both, and would like to go more often.  In fact, I’d love to learn how to do them myself!

{3} Do you color your hair? do you have a salon do it or do you do it yourself?  I started colouring my hair a few years ago.  It started out with just a few blonde highlights, but I now go dark for the winter, and then put the highlights back in for the summer.  I go to my hairdresser to get it done.

{4} Facials...have you ever had one?  I had my first one last fall at a friend’s Bachelorette Spa Day.  I was a little worried – I was afraid it might be bad for my sensitive skin.  I was wrong.  It was blissful.  The lady also gave a relaxing head and neck massage.  I loved every second of it, there were no problems with my skin, and wouldn’t hesitate to get one again!

{5} Would you or have you ever done botox?  I have never…I’m 28, I barely use wrinkle cream.  I haven’t got to the botox stage yet.  (At least, I hope!)  I don’t think I ever would, either.  That’s one luxury that I don’t think I’d bother with.

{6} Beauty knows no pain, do you believe in waxing, electrolisis, eyelash extentions, anti-aging creams, micro-dermabrasion, peels, botox?  As much as I love a good massage and a nice mani or pedi, I’m pretty laid-back when it comes to beautifying.  I mean, I just started using make-up about five years ago, and my expertise is pretty limited at that!  I take care of my skin, do what’s necessary, get my eyebrows waxed, and that’s about it.  I imagine one day I’ll look into anti-aging cream, but that’s about as far as I’ll go!

So…what’s your beauty regimen?  What lengths do you go to to stay looking young?  Go visit one of the lovely hostesses listed at the top and link up! :)

Love those nail colors. I'm with you on the botox! I don't like needles to begin with.

My stylist was just saying that last week about being blonde in summer and brunette in winter! It's a great plan. :D

I'm not bold enough for black but I dig that sparkly color.

you look fabulous as both a blond and brunette. how fun.

ah, to be 28 again. do the anti aging, or at least skin care stuff now, because somehow at almost 35 i'm considering botox. maybe it's all my kids aging me extra fast.

i'd never considered a facial before my friend told me all about it. you sold me too. i want one now.

your nails look fabulous! i'm a do it yourself kinda gal for my fingernails. it's a huge splurge if i get them done at the pedicure place.

thanks for linking up. awesome pics.

I love the nail colours! I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to rock the black, but it looks awesome. And wow I love how you switch up your hair colour with the seasons. Oh, and I love the jersey, Neil is one of my favourites!!

You have exquiste sking, Jillian, I was noticing it yesterday.

manis and pedis are very easy to learn how to do. How I do it is you put your fingers or feet in water and let them soak, then you dry and massage them and then you push the cuticles back, trim and file the nails and then put on the nail polish. I'm a huge fan of black nail polish myself however I love greens, and purples too. I'm addicted to nail polish too (I'm a big fan of Nicole by OPI and Butter London)
