When I have a special date I have this ritual that I love to follow.
I draw a bath, sip some wine, put on some good music, and really take my time getting ready.
I pick my clothes, change a few times, and then maybe change a few times more.
A few hours later when my boyfriend picks me up I feel totally refreshed and like I just spent some quality time doing silly, girly stuff.
When I talk to my girlfriends it seems like everyone has funny rituals they follow to get ready.
