Plucking. All of the plucking.

I hate having to stave my armpits every few days. I’m 100% Italian and other than in that area I’m pretty lucky in the hair department. I have NEVER shaved my thighs. I have been accused of shaving my arms before which is pretty funny. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hate putting on lotion, it just always feels greasy and it drives me nuts, so I don’t use it often.

Same here – I hate shaving my thighs, it feels like it takes so long because the hair grows all different ways. I shave every day, no matter what and my showers are always 20 mins long.

I also hate drying my hair!

I know this is rare, but I actually don’t mind shaving at all. I actually shave my legs and underarms every other day. Somehow I got lucky and my skin doesn’t get all irritated from shaving that much.

I do, however, HATE plucking the stupid little gross black hairs that pop out of my chin every few weeks. UGH. Hate admitting I even have that problem. Makes me feel so gross. And no product I’ve tried has made it go away. (shudder).

I’ve also recently grown to hate dealing with my complexion. I never had skin problems in my teens, but over the last 2 years or so my skin is a giant mess. Oily one day, dry and peeling the next. Rosacea, wrinkles, eczema … anything else?!?! Being under the care of a dermatologist doesn’t even seem to be helping. Ugh. So frustrated.

Also because of my genetic history (an element of North American Indian) I have very little leg & arm hair… so shaving my legs is pretty much a non-required element (I do it once in awhile… a couple times a year, though if I know we’ll be going on vacation / enjoying the beach etc… just to “keep up appearances”).  Although I have been known to just spray on “Sun In” and let the few stragglers stay just be a nice shade of blonde.

YUP… lazy shaver for sure.

In retrospect, what Mother Nature didn’t put on my legs & arms… she went overboard with elsewhere.  And all of it requires a fair bit of regular maintenance.

Bikini Line & Armpit hair can grow like wild-fire.  Eyebrows are a mangled mess most of the time.

Eyebrows would be the one that I let slip most of the time (I will not tweeze… OUCH.  And don’t particularly like having them waxed at the salon either).

Talking about the salon…

The hair on my head, never ceases to amaze my Stylist.  I have like a TON of hair… and it grows sooo very very quickly.

They say “the norm” is aprox 0.25 to 0.50 inches per month (so max about 6 inches per year).  I am easily in the 8 to 12 inches per year category.  I’ve worn it long for most of my life (just easier).

Seriously considering a major POST WEDDING CHOP… that will be a HUGE change for the new Mrs TTR

I kind of hate cutting my nails.  Not to say that I don’t, but I just always end up cutting them in the wrong shape or cutting my actual skin >_<

Oh man, I hate most of it.  I hate hate hate washing my hair.  It is really long and takes forever in the shower and I have huge boobs- it just is not that fun to shower.  I always have tons of tangles.  It is just a pain in the butt.

I also hate doing dishes, I don’t know if that counts!  And laundry.  I hate my hands being wet when I am doing dishes.  Suppose I should just get some gloves.

I hate people touching me so I hate getting my hair cut, but luckily I have a great stylist that understands my long tangly hair and doesn’t just tear it with a paddle brush.

I have, right now, this minute, the biggest toothache you could imagine, I have known for a while my back tooth needing work but ignored it until now, I have to wait until tomorrow at 5:00 to find out what they can do. I wish I can take better care of my teeth including flossing!

Shaving is a cake walk to me! I HATE, HATE, HATE having to dye my hair. If I go to the salon, it’s like 3 hours out of my day, if I do it at home, it’s about 2 hours. My hair is like 65% gray thanks to genetics. Also, my hair grows at an extremely rapid rate, so I have to color it like right in between the 2-3 week mark. I can never understand anyone willingingly putting themself through this process. If I didn’t have to do it, I totally wouldn’t!

Shaving, of course, so I’m extra glad it’s getting cold out and I don’t have to as often. The hair on my thighs barely grows anymore, so my fiance can rarely tell I haven’t shaved my legs (he’s not very observent when it comes to my lower legs), plus my body hair is blonde. I do shave my armpits regularly, though, b/c it takes 2 seconds.

Showering is a nuisance, but I don’t go more than a day without one…and it only takes me about 5 minutes…I will never understand people (like my fiance) who spend 20+ minutes just standing in a shower!

Pretty much any beauty maitenance gets on my nerves…haha…I hate having to wear makeup every day, but my skin tone is wonky and I have blonde brows and lashes, so if I don’t wear makeup in public, I look horrible…absolutely no definition of my eyes! I want to get them tinted, to cut down on the makeup, but then there’s the upkeep with that…sigh…
