Pinch, Punch, First of the Month and my Reverse Brazilian.

beauty news

Wow. December came around fast, didn’t it? I can’t believe it has been a year since the ill-fated kitten disaster episode (poor, poor little Ted). So much has happened this year – I think that it has actually been the most hectic year of my life so far! I may have to do a little “end of year recap” video after Christmas, for my own benefit more than anything else. Isn’t it strange that as you get older, the years seem to get shorter and shorter?

This post is turning into a bit of a Sunday Tittle Tattle on a Saturday, isn’t it? We mustn’t let that happen. Let’s talk about my incident with the Veet Brazilian Clay instead. It was, quite literally, hair-raising. Many of you will know that Veet or whatever hair-removal brand comes to hand is my method of choice for the danger-zone area. Razors? NO. Waxing? Never. Not when hair removal cream is so……easy……

It always has been easy, but yesterday things went slightly to pot in the nether regions. I was in a rush to get to the agency and stand in my underwear pretending to dance to the Kings of Leon (don’t ask) and so I didn’t really pay attention to my hair removal cream application method. I don’t want to go into any great detail, but let’s just say that I ended up with what can only be described as a reverse brazilian. You’ll just have to try and picture it. Or not. Please don’t let this ruin our relationship.

Anyway, all fixed now, though I’ve had to remove rather more than I was hoping to. I’ll start on those Imedeen tablets this week and see if I can’t get some 70’s volume back into it by Christmas. Hohoho.

That’s all for now folks – normal service will resume tomorrow and I’ll try not to lower the tone!

In the meantime: have you read the Model Breakfasts post and the reader StriVectin review? Both went up yesterday but I was out and about and forgot to tweet about them!

    LOLZ at this post Ruth! I have no idea what a reverse Brazilian is, because well I’m not sure what a Brazilian is but it got me laughing all the same. (Not going to Google a Brazilian….it will either give me images I don’t want to see at this time of the morning OR an actual person from Brazil….and I’m pretty sure your ‘danger zone’ doesn’t look like that lol)!

    Well, I know what a Brazilian is, I think (where ALL your hair-down-there is removed, right?), but I too have no idea what you mean by a reverse Brazilian… anyway….. hm.. just a plain ol’ razor for me :p

      I guess we don’t all know… a Brazilian is “the landing strip” so a reverse Brazilian is probably two strips down the sides like sideburns :)

    Awwww, accidents happen when you don’t need them to! I do hope that “down below” will now have a chance to grow back and make everything look natural etc. I had a “hollywood” once (where there is nothing left, not even a “strip”) and omg, felt so weird as it made look like I was 5 again :( I also don’t use razors, think they induce the most hideous rash down below and I’ll be scratching all day long as if I have crabs (sorry!!). Anyway, have a nice weekend! x

    Wow, that was both scary and hilarious…I hope it wasn’t too traumatic and it’ll all come back soon, as hair does.
    Oh and it was hilarious only because you really have a comic vein in your writing, which reminds me …what’s this I heard about your fiction writing getting a great review? I really want to know more because I’ve always been a writer too and I like to know about these things. Besides, I really appreciate your writing here so I’m super curious about your fiction :)

    My family is not sure why I’m laughing….I’m not going to tell them! Haha, Ruth! So funny! Love the ref to 70’s volume! Omg!

    I’m amazed at your valor for using hair removal cream because I find the cream to sting…so when you said you used it down there – oh my! but perhaps my skin is a bit more sensitive than yours….i always burst out laughing when you go “hohoho” after cracking a bawdy line…..
