I had my nails professionally manicured once but I broke one the next day, so I never bothered again (honestly, I can chip 5-day-wear nail varnish within the hour without trying).
I saw a couple in the supermarket the other day. They were both perfectly groomed in that expensive-but-looks-like-we're-not-trying-very-hard way. She had perfectly straight hair (ironed and extended), four-inch stilettos and her clothes were perfectly co-ordinated with her partner who had the just-the-right-amount-of-stubble look. All to go and buy a chicken.
Day to day, all I want is to look relatively normal - to give myself a quick shake and appear pleasantly wind-swept - that sort of look... not sticky-up hair and puddle water splashed up the back of my tights. So, I'm a bit off-centre, veering towards the 'hedge' look and I think I'm going to have to become comfortable with that, aren't I?
Which side of the fence do you fall?
