    Less and Less ...

    I do enjoy cosmetics and beauty treatments but it doesn't really bother me if I don't wear make-up.  I will get a professional manicure or pedicure, waxing or the odd facial, but it's not an essential ritual.  Going out without make-up really doesn't bother me and I don...

    I've never had a manicure

    or spa day, I own one handbag and three pairs of shoes. I believe items have a function not a fashion

    I am not high maintenance.

    I think women that slave over their looks are ridiculous. The only time a woman has to fix herself completely if of she's going to an event, party or date. I'm not saying that she has to not look and smell good but she doesn't have to spend hours fixing herself. I know a woman...

    I don't get some girls.

    ... put a ton of make up on and crap, then some girls have tight dresses and very high heels. For me little to no make up is natures way. Fitting dresses and good pair of flats.

    If I didn't have damn dark circles under my

    eyes, I wouldn't wear any make up at all. It's nice to feel beautiful in my own skin. I own 3 pairs of shoes, hate fancy jewelry and name brand everything. I get my hair done like once a year and only go to a salon if I'm going to be in a wedding.

    I am in no way complicated or high maintenance. I am probably as simple as it gets and maybe too much so. I don't like taking too much time for my looks. I think natural and less is more and I don't need all the bells and whistles to feel good. I actually do not feel like myself...

    You could take me on a date anywhere

    and I'd be happy. It could be the movie theatre or watching a movie at your place. ****, you could take me outside and we could look at the stars or climb trees. I do not care as long as you kiss and hold me at some point.

    I don't like fancy dresses, make-up, or jeans. I prefer to just wear some yoga pants and a t-shirt and lounge around the entire day with my hair in a simple bun. It's all good with me!!

    I have never been a high maintenance person.

    I don't need all that jewelry, or going an expensive restaurant. I'll be happy going to a coffee or a walk on the beach. I'm just your typical southern girl :)

    but not too much! My idea of a perfect first date is having a laugh, going to the beach or for a walk, having a smoke and a giggle - it's the best way to get to know someone and it's fun! Not into expensive meals and all that, it's a waste of money! I like looking nice, but...

    I am a simple girl. I like companionship

    but am independent. I love affection but am not clingy. I don't need to be taken care of and I don't require a lot of attention. Though it doesn't hurt to be attended to every one in a while!

    That is not saying that I'm dirty and raggedy. I do enough to look presentable and to satisfy my confidence. I used to keep my hair short so that I wouldn't have to style it everyday. Yesterday I trimmed layers into my hair so it would curl and I didn't have to spend hours...
