Just as we humans need food, water and air to live, my girlfriends and I have as a vital necessity the requirement to look glamorous. It is mandatory for our existence.

To be fabulous and glamorous come with a price; an expensive one at that!
Glamour requires daily, weekly, and continuous maintenance on our nails, hair, face, body, and feet. Manicures, pedicures, facials, hair styling, massages, eye brow arching, among other beauty and fitness regimens are necessities. Time must be reasonably allocated to receive the beauty enhancements and maintenance regimes.

For penny pinchers, beware the cost of beauty! Trust me when I tell you that the tangible and emotional benefits outweigh the monetary costs. It is worth every minute and penny of it!

Although this is an unproven hypothesis, the nexus between beauty and emotional gratification is crispy sharp. In other words, when you look good, you feel good!
So, establish a budget that will assist you toward maintaining your beautiful self. What a pleasure it is to showcase one’s natural glow!
