The Joy of Waxing


While Katie was in town I thought I had better get on the ball and purchase my wax pot and supplies so I could get those hard to self wax areas!!! I have always had an infatuation with waxing, don't ask me how it started I am not quite sure except that I like the pain of it!!! My first experience was with Nads, which I hated!!! Soo messy and man was it painful!! I think the first time I did my leg I had welts for a few days and it definitely brought me to tears! After that I took up tweezing any hair while watching tv, talking on the phone, hanging out with the roommates or any other down time (I learned that little habit from Chloe my french roomie). Somewhere in between Nads and tweezing I tried the bleaching for the lip which smelled terrible and really wasn't all that great. Then I discovered the joy of microwave hard wax!!! I went crazy with it, waxing all that excess hair off me and anyone else that would dare to let me give it a try on them!!! The only complaint I had was that I would have to move quickly to finish the job before the wax cooled and I would have to reheat it in the microwave! Then I did some research and discovered that wax pots weren't that expensive and that I could save a ton of money doing the job myself without the time constraint of microwave wax! I have never lost the love for it so I am now a proud owner of my own wax pot and both hard and soft wax so if anyone needs a good waxing just stop on by!!! Below is a little insight into the joy of waxing!!

If you ever get tired of waxing, try laser hair removal. I highly recommend it and its totally worth the investment.

By the way, props for posting pics of your pits on the internet.

Just an additional side note- if you like the pain of it (no offense, but are you a sick-o??) laser hair removal can be quite the burning experience if you opt out of using the numbing cream.

Yes I am a sick-o it is true!!! I just like pain it is a bit addicting!!! I did do laser and I didn't think the results were good enough to pay more for the rest of the body!!

Haha...you're awesome. I should learn how to do my own eyebrows. I'm a freak about them but don't get to salt lake to have my sister do them too often so I just go nuts! Good luck with all that... :)

Dareth! I'm totally addicted to waxing too! I'm going today to buy some... maybe I'll get a wax pot. Jake does my legs... he's more than happy to get the hair off... ha ha ha! Hey, I need help with my little photo slideshow. It is too wide for the side bar thing and I don't know how to fix it. How did you make yours fit? By the way, I sure miss you. I think about you all the time. If you're ever in AZ let me know so we can hang out! Love, Kayla P.S. Did you go to New York? Jake and I are going tomorrow for a week! We're hitting Boston too!
