Love and hurts

I could jokingly say that today I underwent pain, and torture, but I might be exaggerating a lot, even though my body was waxed all over. It had been far too long since last done, but in truth, beyond brows, under arms, and err, bikini line, nothing really hurts all that much with me, as even after about 18 months, most of me really isnt that hairy, but hey, its fun to lay it on a bit. Thankfully, that was the pain part with Linda, and I can now look forward to the pleasure part of the experience on Thursday (my birthday, hint, hint) of a massage and facial. Believe me when I say that my body more than needs both!

Yes, there was a purpose to the ‘torture’ today, as I needed to get my brows removed, given its time for the semi perm make up top up on Tuesday lunchtime, and clearly the brows need to be gone for that. So yes, get the whole lot done while I’m at it! Will also be getting the lips touched up, and presumably the beauty spot as well if it needs it (Pure Harlow touch) at the same time. I have to admit that did hurt the first time I had it done, but the top up before wasnt too bad, and I’m sure that will be the same this time too. Certainly a blessing that gets around my inability to do my own make up, due to (very slight) hand tremor.

Paula does say she’s going to rise to the Jean Harlow challenge, but if she can take 35 years, and 7 inches off me, I’d be amazed lol! Mind, I’d enjoy it if she did, has to be said!

No, the love isnt real, just one of those silly girl crush things. Last night, I flexed off an hour early to get off on holiday, complete with a pair of birthday cards, and a bouquet of flowers from Madi, a lovely touch. No, she isnt the girl crush! In truth, all I know about her is that she lives in Bailiff Bridge, but presumably works in Bradford, as its generally in an evening that I see her on the bus. Sadly, or maybe for the best, I’m pretty sure she has a wedding ring on. In truth, I have no idea why she appeals to me, she is very slim, which really isnt my type. She’s also not sensationally blessed on looks, though she’s not hard on the eye, all the same. But fine, she’s cute, and she’s caught my eye, for sure. Yes, she was on the bus that I got because I flexed off an hour early, win, win! Only thing was, me carrying a bouquet of flowers, good thing or bad? She probably thinks I’ve got a partner/admirer who gave them to me, so even if she was planning a bi moment, she’d think I was taken too. Fine, there is about as much chance of that as me winning the London Marathon, but anyway…

Amusing touch is that she reads on one of those Kindle things, but sadly I very much doubt its any of my stories lol! Equally pretty sure she wouldnt fancy me anyway!

Right, video time. It also hurts me when I realize this song is more than 40 years old, as I remember when it was released. A group that didnt have many hits, but are still going, seemingly.

The more you live, the more you try things

It might be hard to believe, but at one time, I was very much a ‘tried and tested’ girl (or guy, as I was), and tended to stick to pretty much the same, safe formula, and leave things at that. However, since the confidence boost given to me by hypnotherapy, I’ve got very much more daring, if in a safe way.

As in, I’ll give things a try, to see what they’re like, before making a call, rather than just saying “No”, and leaving it at that. And yes, that even stretches to trying out those awful looking Jean Harlow eyebrows for one night in November. Seriously, if you expect me to find these attractive

you’re going to be disappointed! I know, I know, they were a 30’s thing, but…

Alright, despite that sentiment, I’m going with a variation of them for one night, just so ‘Jean’ can see I did it lol!

Oh, but while we’re on the subject of Harlow, and her make up style, let me show you this

Now, aren’t those eyebrows much nicer? In fact, as a whole, I love that look. Very 30’s, but at the same time, there is nothing that could offend modern eyes there. So much so, that…an ex workmate was advertising her new business on Facebook last night, and I was happy to support her. Yes, its this (semi) permanent make up, which would be an absolute boon for me, given I cant do my own, due to that slight tremor in my hands. In all truth, the only reason I probably havent had her do it already is the distance between us, about 200 miles. But fine, last night, I got one of those offers you dont refuse, and I doubt I will!

A special price, somewhere to stay, and fine, the thought of looking even more like Harlow, and looking like I’m wearing make up (which a woman really should), how can I say no? So fine, early in the New Year, it will probably happen, should make going to Hollywood even more fun! Jean Harlow really will live, maybe?

However, before all that, today, I tried something else new, a spray tan session. And hey, what do you know, I like!

No, I dont look like an orange, I look a nice shade, but definitely look like I’ve been out in the sun, and added some colour to my fair skin. I like it, others like it, so its a certainty that it will be repeated for Kansas City. Oh, and Hollywood next year, might really be carrying the tanned Harlow look by then!

So yes, again, I’m so glad I gave something new a try.

The process is interesting, and the spray is definitely on the cool side, but…it looks good, its safer than the sun, or tanning machines, and it looks good, so…it will be done again, but only for special occasions.

The video, well, the more you live bit might be true, but me, and love, hmm…?
