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."
I don't buy designer labels because it's "trendy."
Never had a manicure or pedicure. I can't justify spending money on it when I can take care of my hands and feet on my own for much less.
I have never colored my hair (and I do have a few gray strands). It doesn't bother me. I keep my hair trimmed every 3 months. I keep it clean and neat. I let my hair air dry even though it takes a very long time because it's incredibly long and thick. I don't use any styling products in it.
It takes me about 15 minutes to get dressed no matter what it's for and I'm ready to go (obviously this isn't counting shower time.)
I wouldn't get cosmetic surgery or procedures (ie; liposuction, botox etc) done for superficial reasons. Aging is inevitable and much better than the alternative...
I'd rather have a home cooked meal or even a pizza delivered and being curled up on the couch with the one I love instead of going out to an expensive restaurant. Yes, going out to dine is a nice experience, but it's not something I would "require" on a regular basis.
I donate food, clothes, toys, my hair (to locks of love) and blood/plasma regularly, because I want to help others who are in need.
Now with all this being said, it doesn't mean that I don't like feminine things or that I don't embrace being a woman. I do! But I don't have to be flashy and expensive to pull it off! :)
