Shave Them Legs
Like them sexy feet? It seems like a majority of people in this world are terrified or disgusted of feet for some reason or another. I mean, I understand not wanting other people's feet in your face and all, but foot-phobia is generally quite puzzling to me. Anyway.
Just jumped out of the shower on my super work-free Friday and took some extra time to do a hair mask and shave my legs (even though I suck at it and had to touch it up as soon as I put on my shorts), and am pondering something that has plagued me ever since I started shaving my legs to begin with.
Now, I'm from the southern US, Georgia to be specific, and my mother is a pretty southern as far as southern goes, and she raised me in what I can only assume is a very southern way. When I was first "old enough" (oo la la!) to shave my legs I remember my mother telling me, "A lady never need shave more than an inch above the knee."
And unless I'm wearing something particularly short without tights (which is only in the dead of summer like now), its generally a rule I follow.
The problem is, now is baking outside and there's just no way to get by without flashing some thigh and I just want to shave hell out of them. Uggggh but the hair is so thin and light, it takes forever and I can never seem to get it all. It's quite possibly the bane of my existence right now.
So I'm just curious. What do you do to make this process easier?
And I'm off work for summer now! It's so nice to have a long, work-free summer vacation for once without have to take any huge exams to get there, haha. Cheers!
^ I walk past this place on the way to work sometimes. I can't tell if it's a plant shop, a gardeny cafe, or just someone's private gardeny world, but it's amazing. Through the windows there are so many plants and just these sparsely hanging light bulbs creating the most perfect ambiance you've ever seen.
