Company Girl Coffee 2.6

Hey! I'm glad that you dropped in! This week I've kinda slacked on Rachel Anne's Home Sanctuary Small Things. I did complete three out of five, so that's not too shabby! Today's Small Thing is GREAT! Doing something to feel like a woman (with bonus points for flirting, etc., but we'll just leave it at that!) I have been thinking about this a lot lately, and found a fun "list" of things to do once a week as a beauty routine (doesn't that sound sooooo fancy?!) It's old-fashioned and from some early 1900s book, but the idea is charming, I think! And, some things are done WAY more than once a week, like wash your hair, but anyway... it's the point! Take a look if you want. I've thought about making my own list of weekly "beauty maintenance" things and choosing one night and saying, "I'm going in the bathroom. Unless the house is on fire, don't bother me!" and doing it. That hasn't happened either, but a girl can dream! Do you do anything like this?

Oh, you need to have your bathroom time. Bath time is a coveted time at my house! I usually do it once the kids are asleep, and my husband just lets me be. Ahhhh, I look forward to it every day!

What an outstanding list of a beauty routine! Makes me wonder what all those chapters referenced say. :)

I'm hoping to head to the bath before it gets too late today!

Rachel Anne said...

Well, I got my legs shaved and you know that feels very womanly! I love a good bubble bath, but I don't think that will happen today.

Points for flirting....just doesn't seem RIGHT, but I'll bet the men won't care how or why it comes their way ;) 3 out of 5 is pretty good this week!!

Yes, bathroom time. Many time I've hidden in our bedroom, reading a book or what not, just for some quiet time. Take that bathroom time!!!!

I take FOREVER every morning in the shower. If my husband doesn't shower before me, he usually runs late to work. But that's just my personal time to pamper myself!! So I totally understand your desire for some beauty/pampering time. Definitely find a way to give it to yourself!! :0

Thanks for having us over! ;) I enjoyed reading the list of beauty tips. Too often we don't take time to pamper ourselves. Have a blessed weekend.

I'll have to take a look at that list sometime. Good job on your Small Things. 3 out of 5 is not bad.

I just read 'the list'....it's a rare moment that I get into the bathroom for just the necessities without one of my teens at the door trying to have conversation! I would love to be able to have the interrupted time to do all that...I'd sure feel special!

I took a bath last night and it felt so good just to soak and do nothing, yummy smelling bath oils help too.

For me, bathroom time by myself is rare. Everyone around here wants to know what mamma is doing. On the weekends it is nice because my DH watches the kids for me while I shut the door, take an extra long shower, and pamper myself for a while. :)

Thanks for the coffee!
