Can’t believe that I still have this.
Tell me that you’re out of stock of my birth control when I go in to fill my script.
Thank goodness for the other pharmacy.
I’d decided to make a follow-up appointment for a bikini wax at the local salon. It’s been three weeks and my appointment is next week.
Since I usually do my waxing at home and I shave the more delicate bits, it’s driving me a little batty being all unkempt down there.
I have a feeling next week’s appointment is going to be a bit more painful than the last session because hair will be yanked from additional places that she couldn’t get last time.
Why do I do this to myself? It’s not like anyone is going to be seeing me naked anytime soon.
Playing with my hair. I think this is my favorite go-to hair for Bikram hot yoga. It keeps my hair out of my face and off of my neck, and it doesn’t interfere with any postures.
Sure, ponytails and braids are faster and easier, but hair still flops around and depending on where they’re placed, they interfere with a few postures.
My hair is so thick and heavy, I can’t do a topknot without breaking hair ties to get one to hold and without using a bunch of hairpins that’ll poke my head.
I just need to pick up the pace on actually getting my hair up and cutting down the number of tries before I get it right. It’s one of those braids that’s much easier to do if I was braiding someone else’s hair rather than my own.
Ah well, it’s up and done. :-p
Last night, I’d realized that I pretty much have my own little pillow menu on my bed. I have my memory foam pillow (which is about due to be replaced), my awesome “like resting my head on a fluffy, yet firm and soft cloud” Downlite pillow (which I’d ordered after an amazing night’s sleep at Hotel Ignacio in St. Louis, and some other random pillow that’s kind of firm and designed for “side sleepers”.
So depending on my mood and my neck’s needs, that’s the pillow I go with. The other two are placed on either side of me so that I have my little “nest” action going on.
Even when I was on the road, every night in my hotel bed, I’d make my nest. It’s just more comfy and comforting for me. :-p
Ahhh… The #njoy “fun wand” is still one of my faves.
There’s just something about the weighty, smooth, and cool-to-the-touch stainless steel.
Toys don’t always have to vibrate to be a good time. ;-)
Could I get paid to travel the world, eat awesome food, and visit all things having to do with the sex toy industry? Is that a thing? Could it be?
So the other day, I thought I’d be a little girly and test out this whole headband curling thing again. I’d tried it last week, but only had had my hair for for maybe 2 or 3 hours, instead of overnight, so I had a little bit of body, but no real curl.
This time, I wrapped my hair up and went to sleep with it up. I’m going to say that I was a little nervous about having it wrapped in the headband all night because I move around a lot and thought my hair would get really tangled up somehow. That first time, I didn’t take it slowly when I was taking my hair down and I ended up with my hair knotted up around the back of the headband where my ends were wrapped. It was so bad, I was ready to cut it out.
So… up went my hair around the headband and to sleep I went.
The next morning, after getting dressed to run around, I took my hair down, making sure that I took my time getting the back unwrapped. Once my hair was down, I just combed thru it with my fingers and was ready to go.
You can see that my bangs were curled up off of my forehead and out of my eyes. That was different. My forehead hasn’t been hair-free without the use of a headband for forever.
Since I’ve gone “no-poo”, I didn’t use any styling products, so I had no idea how long the curls would last. My hair doesn’t hold curl that well because it’s so heavy.
The last pic you see is about 4 or 5 hours later before I got ready for Bikram class. And you’ll see that some curls were still hanging in there. The back of my hair wasn’t as curly because it didn’t stay wrapped up as well, but there was still something at least. I liked that my bangs stayed curled and off my face for yoga.
I am going to say this… my hair is long, as you can see. So it gets a little sketchy when I get the back part of the wrapping because I have A LOT of hair that has to get up in there. And that’s where I run the risk of a massively knotted mess. Just take it slow and easy.
All in all, I think it as a success though! No curlers, no heat, no styling tools. Score!

It takes just a small amount of effort to create good momentum.
