Love myself for a reason

Amongst many other things that might annoy me about myself at present, one of them is the fact that I’ve let myself go, a bit. No, not in a drastically bad way, just that at present, due to an attempt to not spend more money than I have to, beauty treatments have gone out of the window, since I got back in October.

Fine, not having my nails beautifully painted really only affects me, I guess, but I must say I miss having them with gel on the nails, just always looked good. But yes, even more annoying to me, and which will definitely be a far more painful experience when I can get it done, waxing!

Yes, my brows are currently hairy, and I hate them, especially as they are distorting the gorgeous semi perm make up brows that I have by now. Oh, and fine, the armpits too, and I ‘KNOW’ they will hurt when ripped out! Bad enough when I keep them maintained, but now…

Oh, and fine, my knees could do with a major massage too, but all of them will have to wait, I guess? Fortunately at present, my hair should be fine for another month or so, before I have to decide what I’m doing about my roots. Oh, and last, but not least, next week is meant to be my podiatrist visit, but I suspect that too will have to be cancelled, at present.

Oh, the things we women suffer for, lol.

But if anyone wants to help…?

Fine, the video. This is me, showing my age. I’m pretty sure that the first clue that maybe I wasnt your standard guy, was as a teen, I fancied Donny Osmond. Now I know it was the natural teen girl thing, but yes, back then, I was confused! But this version is in fact a live version, from 35 years later, and he still looks pretty distinguished!


Are you sure you want to hear more?

Hopefully at least one or two might know what song thats a line from, if not, the video at the end will put you out of your misery lol! The tags might give you an extra clue anyway.

The funny thing about working in a call centre, is that the people you talk to, only ever hear your voice, and never see your face, and therefore might assume things that arent quite true. If I had a pound (euro/dollar, whatever your currency may be?) for every member of shop staff I’d heard say about the lady at the other end of the phone, or comments about darling, honey etc from the staff themselves, well, I’d probably only have to work 8 months of the year! Yes, the voice is soft, and I think its safe to say that most might get a surprise if we ever met! Dont get me wrong, I think its wonderful they do all think they are talking to a woman, just hope they never bring in video phones lol!

And yes, I certainly dont think I’m the type of girl you marry either! Not just the physical issues though, though clearly they might play a major part! I wouldnt make a good partner now anyway, years of being single have made me highly independent, and having to think  about what someone else might want to do, as well as myself, well that might be tricky!

What more is there to say? I’ve started building towards the holiday starting on the 17th, got a laser session tomorrow to zap the pretty much non existent hair, but hopefully it will kill off the last few annoying hairs this time around. Also booked to have my hair coloured and tidied up next Tuesday, both are definitely needed. And despite the pic on here, I’m not a redhead, more of a blonde. The hair in the avvie pic is a wig, which I havent used in ages now, but still own. If my own hairline ever really recedes, well then I might become a redhead again! 😉 Hopefully that wont be needed though. Finally, next Friday, just before I go will be getting all the nails infilled, a nice massage and facial, and if anything needs waxing, it will be! Looking forward to Boston, both to see the place, and because it will be that needed break from work as well.

So alright, my name isnt Carrie, I definitely dont look like Agnetha, but I seem to have a few readers of this, so life isnt too bad in blog-land. And yes, if you hadnt worked it out already, I am a major Abba fan!

Hope you enjoy, but dont think of flooding me with wedding proposals lol!

Trying new things

Well alright, if the price is right, I’ll give most things (within reason) a try, though I have absolutely no plans to try living as a man again, thats just too painful! But what I do like trying are new beauty treatments that I havent done before, if only to find out what they are like! And yes, I have done that fish pedicure thing, actually comes recommended to be honest.

The bulk of my treatments are done locally by a wonderful lady, Linda, and between the 2 of us, I’m well and truly hooked on having massage treatments. Not that my back is complaining in the slightest about this, its better than it has been in years to be honest. I’ve also been waxed in several places that I never would have dreamed of, before I started transitioning anyway. No, not bikini line though, lol!

There is also a great place in Leeds, which principally I use for my laser treatment called Skin Genesis. The staff are great, very friendly as well, and definitely T-friendly, for anyone in the north of England, thinking about these things. Laser treatment isnt cheap, but it does make an amazing difference after just a few treatments, I must say.

As a good Yorkshire lass, I tend to put value on money, and therefore most of their treatments, however fascinating they may look, I tend to think they arent what I would term value. They probably are, but when you arent on a high wage etc, well, you get my drift.

This month however they are doing a selected number of half price deals, and alright, I cant resist trying something new under those circumstances. So today I’m off for a skin analysis test, in preparation for trying one of those chemical peel things later in the month, at half price. The thing is, you have the option for a free mini makeover after the test, and you dont expect me to resist that either, surely? What I do wonder is if anyone at work will even notice! Ideally I want the peel that transforms my looks into those of a pretty twenty-something young lady, but suspect that  hasnt been created yet, lol! Mind, if they did, I’d probably want a full body treatment, not just the face!

But yes, I love trying new treatments, just wish I could afford some of them!
