Getting Ready for Summer

Oh lord the sun’s out and the temperatures going up and up… which means taking off the layers I’ve been hiding under the last few months and belive me it’s not pretty.

God I hate summer. I’m always exhausted, dehydrated, sun stroked and my legs are always hairy when I want to wear a skirt. And there’s a reason why I’m always in a long sleeve shirt when it’s hot out…

As much as I would love to hide under a thick knitted marquee, I’m trying out this whole new thing where I actually practise doing nice things and pampering myself, all in the name of self-love and all. And also, it’s too damn hot.

At least I don’t have to worry about fake tanning, thanks Indian parents!

Anyway, back to the point of this post, I got asked a few weeks ago if I wanted to try out an electrical wax thingy. and being that I was in dire need of defuzzing and that I love my gadgets I said a big fat yes please!Screen Shot 2015-10-19 at 12.10.24 pm

Veet easy wax – electrical roll-On kit. The contents.

If you’ve ever waxed your legs yourself, you know the mental and emotional torture you have to go through.

It’s been 3 years since I’ve waxed, but oh I do remember the ritual of torture. Dont worry, I did defuzz, I shaved where and when needed, with what time motherhood allowed me.

So I gave the Veet Electrical roll-on a go. I don’t know if it was childbirth but I swear this pain was about 80% less than the other home waxing kit I was using.

Basically, you just heat it up for 20 minutes, roll the wax on your skin, and wax off with the cloth strip provided.  I only used one strip for my entire leg because the wax goes on so thin, the cloth doesnt get clogged up and gooey.

No grossness, no mess, and actually so easy. You can also purchase small roller attachments to do bikini and other small areas . I cannot recommend this enough , I honestly love it.

Lucky because I plan to live in skirts all summer.

Which reminds me, better get on to doing a summer wardrobe cull. It’s such a good feeling only having lovely things you actually wear in your wardrobe! more on that soon.

DISCLAIMER: While this is a sponsored post where I got a free product to try out, I would under no circumstances put myself through waxing my legs if I wasnt already a waxer.  I’m not that crazy. Also, I don’t write about products that are rubbish, because I really hate reading reviews of products that are obviously only written for the sake of freebies.

PS. I would love you to come and join my Facebook family for a bit more of Starring Maya fun. Or if you're more of an Instagram person then right this way 🙂 See you around! xxx Shereen
