I hope you are all well. Today's post is all about the waxing. Waxperts waxing to be specific! Not too long ago I spoke to the lovely Trish at Waxperts about taking the plunge and trying something I have always been curious about... Bikini waxing. I had a look at the list... yes there is a list of ways to get your mary waxed! (mary is code for lady parts) and rang to book an appointment with Janice, waxer extraordinaire and all round fabulous owner of The White Orchid in Walkinstown, who Trish had highly recommended for the wax. I have to say, having your first phone conversation with someone you've never met about potentially going hairless kitty down there was interesting to say the least. So I booked in with Janice for Saturday just gone to get my few bits done (no pun intended).
The night before I dared to go bare, I met a few of the girls for our little blogger meetup where we got to chatting about waxing, the general consensus was that I was mad for choosing to get this done. After a few cocktails (ok, a lot of cocktails) I started to voice my concerns about having someone spending so much time around my hoo-ha area. Being a bigger girl, one of my concerns was mainly... well embarrassment. I had all these horrible images of having to pull all the extra layers back and then taking my poor beautician out to dinner to apologise for having to deal with that, or at the very least buy her some flowers and promise to call... Due to the fact himself was at the meetup sitting there with his head in his hands listening to me rant about my nether regions, when one of the girls asked what I was getting done down there I proceeded to tell her I was thinking of a heart shape.... dyed red... with a chandelier at the top, and a miniature bottle of Chanel No. 5 for that classy effect. He didn't seem altogether too impressed with my ideas. I have no idea why....
So before I knew it Saturday had arrived and we made the journey to The White Orchid in Walkinstown. When I say we, I mean my partner joined me, he was far more excited than I was. Once there Janice showed me into the room where I would spend the next few hours. We decided on the Hollywood wax, which meant going totally bare WHICH by the way includes having the hair removed from your bum. All I could think of was Fr. Ted and his bum fluff... Not the most pleasant topic of conversation and also not something I had thought to deal with. Not that I was going around with a big hairy arse on me but you know... out of sight out of mind and all that.
We began with the bikini area and Janice said that she would begin like a normal bikini was and if the pain was too much she could just clean the general look of the area up. We began to chat about our kids, perfume, makeup etc... and I couldn't believe how easy things were going Janice explained that with Waxperts she first applies soothing oil to the area, the wax itself is heated at a very low temperature and is so thick that the wax only removes the hair and doesn't take 20 layers of skin with it. Once the area has been waxed she then applied a second treatment oil, leaving me with no feelings of pain or even minor discomfort. Pretty amazing right? I think the most awkward part physically was getting my bum waxed... So there I was lying back on the bed with me wares on show to the world, hugging my legs to my stomach while Janice went to work on that end... the worst part about it was all I could think of was Oh God, I really hope I don't fart with the fright when she does that first strip! It's ok... we're all friends here! We can talk about these things... Cant we?!
Once we were all done, I couldn't believe how easy everything had been, I had been worrying about nothing! Well, apart from the farting thing, that was a genuine fear... Sorry Janice! Everything went so smoothly that I honestly would not hesitate to get the treatment done again. I cannot recommend Waxperts and Janice at The White Orchid enough. She made me feel totally at ease, like I was talking to a friend... a lovely friend who waxes your mary. I am really delighted with the results, and himself didn't have any complaints either!
So, that's it for now ladies
I hope you enjoyed!
