About Me

Hello there, thanks for visiting my blog. So, a bit about me; I'm Natalie and I am a Christian, committed to living by God's Word each and every day. I am a proud mother to three beautiful children and creator of The Accidental Mogul - a blog designed to channel my ambitious juices and unleash the writer within! This blog is a reflection of me, so it contains a little bit of everything. I’ll be documenting my walk with my saviour Jesus Christ, as well as my natural hair journey, I'll be writing thought provoking posts, product reviews, hosting giveaway's and of course offering up a generous dollop of everyday mummy musings. I like to hear uplifting and motivational stories, so I’ll be interviewing inspirational people when I can to encourage and inspire others. Sharing experiences is what makes life beautiful, so let's share.

How does your garden grow?

Source
As the title suggests this is indeed intended as a euphemism to discuss the disaster area that is my nether region.

Please don't laugh, but my bikini line/ area, whatever it is called is a mess  and it is irking me immensely.  Pre children it was always kept in order. Regular sessions with removal cream and a trusty pair of scissors meant things never really got too out of hand down there.



Nowadays I can just about get into the shower at my scheduled time, and if I'm lucky give my legs and underarms a quick shave, then there's my eyebrows (I get them done at my local beauty salon for a bargain £2.99), and the top lip, but the less said about that the better.......so my bikini line is way, way down the pecking order, especially as my body remains well covered these days. But with the glorious weather the UK is experiencing at the moment, that is most certainly about to change.

AND.....

Tomorrow I have a smear test and this neglected region desperately needs doing, so I've put a reminder in my phone to do it tonight after putting the children to bed. To be honest I can't be bothered, but I really don't want to freak out the nurse.

Veet removal cream, although fantastic is so faffy. The mess is annoying, but after my experience with waxing - yes don't think I didn't leave a salon half waxed before - Veet works a charm.

The pain I experienced with waxing was ridiculous. It was like nothing I've ever known. It felt like my skin was being ripped off and I was left red (yes my chocolate brown skin was RED) and swollen. I was in a lot of discomfort for days. And this comes from a woman who has endured numerous childbirths but the pain that waxing inflicts is all together different,  especially since there's no bundle of joy to hug at the end. Although I guess a well preened private region comes a very close second.

Nah I don't think so. Bring on the Veet...

Literally laughing out loud at this post! Need a groom myself and wouldn't dare to wax there but I like my garden bare lol happy veeting - smear tests are awkward enough as it is without the added thought of a nurse having to route through your weeds lol

Lol, seriously it's a bush, but I just don't seem to have the time. Must do it tonight, although I'm so tired and if I leave it til the morning that'll be a whole heap of stress, baby screaming, girls whining, my bikini line looking worse than when I started.

Give me strength....

Oh this had me smiling and nodding in total agreement! I have infact just returned from Boots with a pack of Veet to groom the exact same area! We are off on holiday tomorrow and although currently pregnant I would like to join B Lloyd in the pool and on the beach in a swimming costume of some description. However nothing has been touched down there since getting pregnant as I have felt so ill ... I am thinking I should have already done something about it! Eeeeeeek!

Natalie Bea said...

Teamlloyd LOL - Now grooming in pregnancy is a whole other post.

That was a complete nightmare for me. I was soooo sick, that area was left neglected for the whole nine months, so you can only imagine the state.

I had to keep apologising to medical staff at my appointments hehhee *hangs head in shame*

Spiders legs escaping from bikini bottoms and knickers galore! Oh god on that note i am off to sort my 'Mary' out. . . . Now where did i put the shears?
