Fall Beauty Tips

You all know that sometimes I share with you some of my beauty tips, right? I haven't blogged on that subject for awhile, but I was doing a little beauty preparation in anticipation of the class I'm teaching on Saturday, and I thought it might be a good time to pass on a couple suggestions.

First, October's a good month to shave your legs. Soon the holiday season will be here, and most of us will be waaaaaaay too busy to think about frivolous beauty details such as this. Consider first, though, your Halloween costume: Would smooth legs add or detract from the effect you're striving to achieve? In some instances, it may be best to delay that final shave of the year until the beginning of November. Remember, ladies, for most of us, it takes less than an hour to shave it all off but months to grow it back, so don't be too hasty!

Second, and this is, of course, related: Don't forget to tidy up your yard by giving your grass that last mow of the season. And no, I'm not speaking euphamistically here. I'm telling you to get the lawn mower out of the garage (or your husband off the recliner) and mow the REAL lawn.

I think you'll find that the time we take now to spruce up ourselves and our surroundings will pay off in the long run.

Your beauty tips crack me up! I've always wondered if October was a good month for leg shaving and "lawn" mowing!! Thanks for the tips.

Don't forget to put the clippings in the mulch pile! And maybe you should be thinking of a way to recycle the hair. Jewelry or maybe to stuff a pillow. Just trying to help you reduce your carbon footprint.
