Body Sugaring #2...

"Challenge your path to growth. Try something New."

Hey all! I'm a little behind on my 45 new things to do before my 45th! Here is something new #2.

My friend and I purchased a Living Social for Body Sugaring. If you aren't familiar with body sugaring, it's the ancient Egyptian method of removing hair. Hair is removed from the root, thus allowing it to grow back more slower and softer. The sugaring paste is made with sugar, water, and lemon juice and heated to soft candy consistency. Most find it less painful than waxing.

My friend, Kim, got the underarm sugaring, I was a little more daring and got the Brazilian sugaring. 
My technician was a hoot! You could not be shy around her. She was about 60 plus years old. She told me, "I have one rule, if you scream, I'm walking out of the door!" I held back tears to keep from screaming! It was painful, but it didn't last long and the result is beautiful! 

Conclusion, Kim and I are going back and our friend Michelle is scheduling an appointment to get her Brazilian! Carol, my technician promised me the second time around will be less painful. 

So, have you tried Sugaring?

Hey y'all! It's been awhile since I last posted. Let me briefly tell you what's been happening lately. Hope you all have a great week!

Loving: I have girlfriends in all ages! Recently, we all celebrated our friend Linda's 65th birthday! Whenever, we get together there is always lots of laughter.
Listening To:  Justin Timberlake's 20/20 Experience. Love it! My kids gave me the CD for Mother's Day.
Reading: The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis. I can't put this down. It gripped me from the first page, although the first chapter was upsetting to me. Next on my list Life in Spades and Gone Girl.
Thinking About: I am officially the mama of two high schoolers. Wow, where did time go? I now completely understand when my mom would say, "I can't sleep until all of my children are in the house." When my kids go out with their friends, I'm fidgety until they come back in the house.
Looking Forward To: Our family vacation in the mountains this July along with my parents and nieces. It's so peaceful and relaxing. The best part, sitting on the screened in porch/balcony with my mom drinking a glass of wine and talking.
Trying Not To: Break another weight loss program. Yeah, I'm on something new. Weight Watchers didn't work for me, I just can't with the points. I'm doing Dr. Ian Smith's Shred along with boot camp classes. 

So what's been going on with y'all? Thanks to Sheila of It Girl Allure for giving me inspiration for this post!
