Who Needs Roses?

Who needs a “Valentine” when you have your parents to voluntarily give you goodies and gifts? Not me! My parents have always been my Valentine throughout elementary, junior high, high school and college. One thing for sure is, they will never break your heart, and do not expect anything in return – only unconditional love.

Last year, my mother called me (as usual) to say “Happy V-Day” and to inform me that she had deposited $100 into my bank account. I was ecstatic! I knew that I did not want to make an impulse purchase, so I thought about it and decided to go to Sally Beauty to purchase a GiGi waxing kit. I was tired of paying $10 for a lip or brow wax each time I needed it.

Waxing might not sound like the most romantic of Valentine’s gifts but it has been THE BEST investment ever. I spent less than $70 for all of the supplies I needed and still had $30 to blow! Not to mention, you can easily spend $70 on a handful of salon visits. I have had my GiGi waxing kit for almost a year now, so when you do the math I definitely came out on the winning side. I brag about it all the time. =)

So who needs roses on Valentine’s Day? They die in a week! Tell your lover (or your parents) that you know exactly what you want for V-day this year!

    Shirley, my mom always said, “If you can’t eat it or wear it, it’s not a good gift.” : o D

    First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had
    a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to
    writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Kudos!
