Beauty and Grooming

Does your personal appearance need some help before the wedding?

Think about how happy you are with your hairstyle, how long it takes you to decide what to wear in the morning, how many clothes you have, how often you find you just don't have what you need to wear or feel you look frumpy in what you do have, what you sleep in every night, how uncertain you are about your personal appearance, and how often you pick something out to wear only to discover that it is stained or missing a button.

That should give you a good idea about how much work you have to do in this area and in Dress and Wardrobe.

Or get to do, as the case may be. It could be fun!

  • Feelin' Feminine covers a lot of different topics, beauty among them.

Develop Better Personal Care Habits
