Waxing..the good the bad the ugly

So I went and got waxed...my eyebrow and upper lip..I haven't done that in months..well the lip probably not in years...my upper lip has blonde hair on it and I don't like how "furry" it can get...well if I didn't break out..I have little zits all across my lip..I look like a leper...what is up with that?  And the lip hurt like hell!  The eyebrows I am used to so they were not bad and look so much better.
Mom and I decided to go get pedicures on Mothers day as we have not gotten one at all in probably 6 months..I used to get them monthly but again I am not one to splurge on myself too often.  I am looking forward to the pedicure...don't get me wrong..I do take care of my feet I just do it myself :)
I went back to work yesterday after being off all last week.  It was awesome to see my work buddies and they did a great job of cheering me up.  I was surprised how energized I felt during and after work and so much more peaceful yesterday...I thought routine was good for Johnny but it was also great for me to be back in the swing of things.
I read that Governor Christie got the lap band .and got it on my anniversary day(February 16).  It will be interesting to see how he does with this.
He needs to lose the weight for his health and I hope he succeeds.

I HATE when I get my lip waxed and I get all of those bumps. It's almost not even worth it. UGH.

Ok, I am laughing because I got my lip done too...first time in my life...and was too embarrassed to say! I had no idea how common! Same as you blonde hair bugging me, but luckily no bad reaction, but OW!!!! The place I went (European wax) doesn't use strips, just a thick wax, not sure if that helps.

So glad being back at work is helping. :) and that things with your mom seem good.

Ugh! The upper lip will always hurt...doesn't matter how often you have it done. I find routine helps everyone in the household...gives you something to cling to and feel like you're in control of even when everything else is going to hell in a handbasket. Sounds like you're doing pretty well. :)

The upper lip is the WORST! I just skip it now because I figure 3 days of red bumps looks way worse than the blond hairs I have!

Glad you're getting back into your routine!

I have never had my lip waxed but now I am looking in the mirror to see if I need to, lol

I had no clue Christie got banded. I will be interested in seeing his progress.

THis happened to me too last time I got my lip waxed. I think it is because the lady didn't pull the skin tight or something before she pulled it off. I never have problems when I do it myself. It will get better quick.

Interesting about Christie, I'll have to check it out. I'm from Jersey.

I hope he does well too. Glad to hear you are pampering yourself!

Every time I get my eyebrows waxed, they try to convince me to do my lip too, and I always say NO. I can't even see it in the mirror unless it is a magnifying one--and yet they ask me EVERY TIME. Sorry about your bumps.

Glad to hear work is actually helping you feel better!

The first and *last* time I waxed my upper lip, I ended up with those nasty red bumps also. NEVER AGAIN! Most people said they had never even noticed my 'moustache', but the sure as heck noticed the bumps!!!!
Yay for Governor Christie! I hate to be sexist, but he will probably lose quickly b/c he is male. I'm happy he went public with it, because he will be a good role model for WLS.

I put wax on my face once...ONCE. It broke out like I had a horrible disease! Some people's skin just can't take it, I guess. Did the salon that did the waxing give you anything to put on the skin after waxing to soothe it?

If you think that hurts....lol. I get a brazilian every month (sorry TMI). Try that and you will never complain about the lip again! I've waxed my own lip a few times and it hurts but nothing compares to the other...lol
