One of the things I adore about the Paleo lifestyle is the return to simplicity. I'm not one who feels we need to "paleo re-enact", cook our food over open fire or clean our loincloths by scrubbing sand on them, but I do like the attempt to cut down on modern excess.
Following this theory, I have not only simplified my diet, my cooking, and my shopping list, but also my personal life. I wear simple clothes, minimal shoes, and try to cut out (or down on) personal care items/habits.
I know many of us (myself included) have gone No (or minimal) soap and shampoo and deodorant.
But, how do my fellow Grokettes feel about giving up make-up? or shaving? or high heels? Stockings? Hair colour? Have any of you cut down on the excessive girly stuff?
I confess I'm not much of a girly girl. Never wearing heels and stockings again doesn't make me flinch. I never was a makeup wearer. I enjoy dramatic eyeshadows (from my punk days) and now use only Khol on my eyes. I know some of you mentioned using henna on your hair.
I guess i feel rather liberated to not have to worry about all that crap anymore, LOL. I have no intentions of looking like a rumpled unwashed hippy, but I think I look/smell/feel better - more natural, and yes, more feminine - now without all the artifice.
So fess up. Have any of you given up the girly frou frou fakery since going Paleo? :) What does your man think? How about your job?
