To be a girlie-girl is…

fun, costly and time-consuming. My definition of a girlie-girl is a female who enjoys being a girl and all it entails. There’s workouts, make-up, hair and beauty treatments of all sorts and varieties…

One of my fav facials is Derma Culture… it was recently featured on the ‘Housewives of Beverly Hills’.  It’s steam, vacuum, special ionization fluid, then under the mask, hooked to electrodes… and all this stimulates and cleanses to give skin a healthy glow. I have gone to Peggy on Forest Lane in Dallas for about 20 years. Before that I went to Derma-Culture in another town for years… this system works and their products are fab! It’s great for healing breakouts to getting your glow on getting ready for a special event. I have a friend who was engaged to a pilot and on the days when he came home, she would have one of these facials to give a boost to her ‘in love glow’. They have been married now for years…Give Peggy a call, to give it a try…972-243-3901 and mention me if you do…

Next, we have hair, we color it, highlight it, trim, grow, perm and press it… Fannie Turner, stylist at Seven Salon, at Park and Preston in Plano…817.378.6729…
She will listen to your individual needs and desires, then execute them with care and expertise…I am picky, picky about my hair. So, you know, if I recommend her, she is worth a try. And on ‘black Friday’ the day after TG, she is offering services discounted at 50%. Can’t beat that! So, local ladies and gentlemen, shop, and then go be pampered. And if you say WomenExplode, Fannie will give you 10% off every visit for the next three months, that’s Nov 25 thru Feb 25th. Great idea for gift giving…

Then of course, women, like ‘us’, workout, watch what we eat (well, most of the time) because we want to look good, feel good and maintain our health and have our bodies running at optimum level… even when we don’t ‘feel’ like it, we push ourselves to stretch and to get our cardio up to keep our bodies running well. There are all sorts of workouts and I have done them all. I workout at least three times a week…Try Reanee Spratt’s yoga and stretch classes at Move Studio, Campbell and Preston in Dallas, 972.732.0206

And after your workout, or on a day that you want to relax and be pampered … try Jennifer Henderson at Stonebriar Spa… Legacy and 121 in Frisco..972.668.6108. I have been a guest for years and enjoy the deep tissue massage followed by a salt scrub. Afterwards, you will sleep like a baby and all girlie-girls know how important sleep is for our overall health and to keep us looking and feeling our best…..also makes for great gift certificates and stocking stuffers…  

So men, if you are ‘fortunate’ enough to have a lady who takes good care of herself, appreciate her efforts for doing so. You might want to tell her she is lovely, beautiful and the best thing that ever happened to your life, bring her flowers, take her to lunch, take her to dinner, if local, a good place is Cadot at Frankford and Preston 972.267.5700…and if you say WomenExplode and you will receive a complimentary glass of champagne and a tasty choice is to accompany it with a Grande Marnier souffle…

But just when a girlie-girl thinks she’s done, she decides that she needs more highlights…Check out, The Color Studio, at Preston and Campbell in Dallas for those ’emergency’ highlights…972.931.2220 along with many other services… 
I have been a client there for over 20 years and where I go for manicures and pedicures and have always felt pampered.
 
It may seem, at times, unrelenting and on going and it is..that quest for her ‘perfect girlie-girl look’..as she changes her mind… long or short, dark or lighter, layered, or blunt cut…

But men, count your blessings…because if you walk around a mall, or visit the ‘dreaded’ discount stores, you will view many, many women who must not give a care about how they look. Would you rather have that beside you, or a girlie-girl?

Think about it and if you are fortunate enough to have a girlie-girl, appreciate what you have on your arm… and the effort and energy ‘certain’ women put into looking and feeling great! 
Let’s hear it for the girlie-girls!…
