I go on holiday this weekend and I like things to be made easy so I can be lazy. I had a really crap shift yesterday so now I can't flipping wait to get away! One of my friends said it's a good idea to get your legs waxed before you go away. It means you don't have to shave and saves you one more thing to do.

What the heck? I'll give it a go I thought. I don't know if many of you do it but I hated every minute of it. The woman took ages to do it as she was so busy talking haha and my legs were SO red afterwards. I came home and my mum said my legs looked like a plucked chicken. Cheers for that Mum. Anyone else tried it?

via google.

One of the pros of regular waxing is that it makes the hairs more finer and grow far less quickly so I totally get why people do it. I also hated the fact you need about 3 weeks of hair growth to wax with anyway - I couldn't wear skirts, tights or anything kinda girly to me because I was so self concious people could see my Gorilla show! I think I'll stick to shaving, it's cheaper and a lot more convenient for me. In saying that since the redness has gone down my legs feel amazing and are so soft!!! I may change my tune in a couple of days if this 'nice-leg-feeling' stays put. Here's to hoping :)

Are you a waxer or a shaver?

I'm a shaver, but have contemplated becoming a waxer. Now, after having read this post...I'm not so sure I'm brave enough to try! Hmmm.

I'm an epilator! I think the money that goes into waxing is stupid and I'd much rather inflict pain on myself than have someone do it for me. I do not blame you for being a shaver. Waxing hurts!

I have to get my eyebrows waxed - I actually find it less painful than plucking, plus I can't pluck easily if I'm wearing glasses, and can't see what I'm doing if I'm not wearing the glasses.

For legs - I stick to shaving with my trusty old Gillette Venus razor!

Bikini wax is pretty painful, but don't really know what the alternative would be (and I only do it when I absolutely have to...!)

I'm a shaver. Probably forever. I tried waxing once. Meh. :)
