High Maintenance

Consider this beauty routine (no, it's not mine)...

"Every other day: hair blown out, 45 minutes, $65 Twice a week: personal trainer, one hour, $80 Twice a week: eyebrow waxing, five minutes, $30 Twice a week: thigh treatment, 45 minutes, $125 Weekly: hiking with trainer, two hours, $150 Weekly: Zone Diet food delivery, $250 Twice a month: pedicure (with manicure), one hour, $40 Twice a month: facial, one hour, $160 Twice a month: massage, one hour, $125 Several times a month: makeup and eyelash application, $145 Monthly: photo facial, 15 minutes, $500 Every six weeks: hair color, two hours, $450 Every three months: hair cut, 45 minutes, $140 Twice a year: Botox and Restylane, one hour, $1,000"

Talk about high maintenance.

I do hair cut & color ($120 a mth); nails ($30); pedicure ($30); about $50 on skincare items and $25 on makeup items each mth; $60 facial a month;plus botox 2x a year for $400 and microdermabrasion at $75 every other month. That's not too bad, is it?

I'd be curious to know your routines, Jen & Gretchen.

I added it up to be about $400. Wow! Didn't realize it was that high.
