    I've always been low maintenance I don't need flashy things to make me happy. I don't need to be swarmed and hovered over by people. I like to do things myself, I like the simple things even the things money can't buy. I don't need millions of dollars just enough to get by and be...

    Of A Different Kind

    Like many aspects of my character I am a total paradox.  I rarely wear make up, and I let my hair dry on its own, but I hate jeans because they're so uncomfortable. I am more into pretty dresses. I also throw on a pair of converse and a ripped pair of jeans once ia week at least...

    That moment when you wish your bed hair looked

    exactly the style you were aiming for and you wish you can go straight to work with it.

    Until about five years ago,

    I put on make up, did my hair, wore dresses, put on the heels, tanned and got my nails done. Now I get my nails done and as long as I shower and brush my teeth I am good to go. I think appearance is very important to some people and that is cool. However, I am confident in...

    I clicked here because I'm confused.

    . It seems many believe low maintenance is able to get dressed and ready quickly etc. Or not having Mani and pedicures ..... I'd always thought it meant low emotional maintenance.... I love the fact a woman goes through the time and money to enhance herself.... I think its their...

    The Way It Is

    When my husband and I decide spontaneously to leave the house, I'm ready to go.  I may have to find shoes, or-on the rare occasion that we decide to go somewhere nicer than the norm-change clothes, but that's it, ten minutes tops. I enjoy dive bars, and don't expect to...

    I am low maintenance.

    This is not to suggest that I do not take pride in my appearance because I do. However, I don't think you need a **** ton of money or a strict beauty regiment to achieve this. Too much time, energy, and expense is wasted on such frivolous pursuits. What kind of person wastes...

    For all practical purposes, I am as low maintenance as I can get. I don't even know what a designer anything looks like. I couldn't care less about things like that. I buy what I like, I just don't think it's necessary to break the bank to do so. People who are impressed...

    Low Maintenance Doesn't Mean the Woman Doesn't "Care"

    Being a low-maintenance woman doesn't necessarily mean the woman does not care about herself or appearance, it's more being at ease with the simple things in life and enjoying them! I don't care for jewelry. Rarely ever wear make-up. I'm not a "clothes horse."...
