We are back from our road trip to Canberra AND Sydney – which was a short and sweet surprise visit for food! And we had a crazy fun time together! We also joined in on the Hadouken craze which is going to be the new “planking” so be prepared to see lots of photos like this from everyone!
Picture the following scenario… You’re getting it on with your partner and it’s getting all hot and heavy when suddenly you feel the roughest sandpaper hands on your delicate body parts. Do you shriek and stop or carry on because you like it like that? If you shriek and stop, then you will definitely be interested in the following 3 Mary Kay products from the Satin Hands range which changed my husband’s sandpaper “rough as guts” hands to softer and much more pleasant (but still very manly) hands :-
Today is no exception. I am going to bare all (not-so-witty pun alert!) with this true story that I have been too embarrassed to share till now. And I contemplated whether it was a personal blog post for my personal blog or a beauty blog post for my beauty blog and I settled for this blog – why? Because 98% of my beauty blog readers are female and you will hopefully relate to my story…
If you haven’t seen this atrocious advert for the LYNX Body Buffer, watch it now. It is trashy and so un-funny…and what the heck is going on with Sophie Monk’s HUMUNGOUS lips?!!
Anyway, the Beauty Blogging Boy (i.e. my Husband) was looking for a new shower cleaning tool for his body and for a while, he played with my Kuu Konjac Sponge, but then he got bored with it because he doesn’t do soft spongy textures and likes the roughness of a shower puff. And so, I went to my local Priceline and bought him the LYNX Body Buffer.
In my female opinion, the LYNX Body Buffer looks like it was designed to scrub woks…like those steel wire cleaners. But the Beauty Blogging Boy loves it because it looks a lot manlier than those flimsy white or pink shower puffs.
One side of the LYNX Body Buffer is used for scrubbing (don’t say ‘exfoliating’ because that’s a beauty term for girls :P) and the other side is designed for lathering up with shower gel (it’s just a normal shower puff in black).
As you already know, the Beauty Blogging Boy is a beauty blogger with a few words and grunts, so writing a review is out of the question. Instead, I had to squeeze some answers out of him…
Me : What do you like most about the LYNX Body Buffer?
BBB : It has 2 sides. Makes me clean.
Me : Do you prefer it to normal shower puffs?
BBB : Yes because it looks manlier.
Me : Would you buy it again?
BBB : Probably yes.
Me : There’s no such thing as probably yes or probably no. It’s either yes, no or probably. Please answer properly.
BBB : Yes.
Me : Does it clean your balls properly?
BBB : You tell me…
Me goes over to inspect them and Me can confirm that BBB’s balls are indeed clean!
Okay, you got me…I made the last part of the interview up 😛 But yeah, apparently the LYNX Body Buffer doesn’t hurt the boy bits like I thought it would…and cleans them well.
LYNX Body Buffer is around $7 and can be found in Priceline. The Beauty Blogging Boy is a satisfied customer with clean balls! Stay tuned for next week’s review on his new favourite shower gel.
I don’t know about you but I like to get to know the blogger behind all the blogs I read…so today, instead of writing another beauty post, I’m here with a personal-ish random-ish post…
Two years ago, I was throwing a Bridezilla tanty because my freakin’ false eyelash wouldn’t stick on my lash line as I had been crying too much after Skype-ing my parents who live in Scotland. I was freaking out because I was GETTING MARRIED!!!
(Note to self : For my next wedding, forget DIY wedding make-up and hire a professional wedding make-up artist! I kid, I kid!!!)
Anyway, lash incident aside, I married my best friend. The best friend who I met in Manly in Sydney whilst I was on a Working Holiday visa…and 180 days later after our initial meeting, we got hitched!
And then 2 months after that, we got married again in Scotland. And we really consider the August wedding date to be the real wedding date because that is when we “officially sealed the deal” if you know what I mean 😛
So today is our 2nd year anniversary of being “legally married”…and hurrah, we will celebrate our 2nd year wedding anniversary in 2 months time. Yay!!!
Ahhh, I just feel really blessed to marry an amazing guy who is an absolute rock!
*insert a long list of mushy wushy lovely dovey words which will make people sick*
You know that movie scene where the wife is doing the laundry and empties out the pockets of her husband’s jackets and finds something incriminating like a red lipstick or some other woman’s underwear or a love note? Well, something similar like that happened to me today and I am ready to share because I need your help in analysing the situation…
My story goes like this…
I had just got home after my disastrous haircut (more on that another day) and was frying some bacon and eggs. The oil was splattering everywhere so I didn’t want to dirty my top nor did I want to put on some frumpy apron (FYI : I don’t actually own an apron). As luck would have it, my Husband’s hoody was lying nearby so I grabbed that and put it on.
The pockets of his hoody were jangling so I took out all the crap in there. Keys, spare change…and then this!
Yes, a sample of Guerlain Issima Anti-Ageing Creme Foundation!!
What on earth? What does it mean? Why would he have that in his pocket? I haven’t visited the Guerlain counter since…FOREVER!!! Has he been secretly wearing foundation?? Does it belong to another woman? Is he having an affair? Is he planning to buy me foundation?? Does he even know what foundation is??? So many questions…not enough answers!
I am uber confused. My Husband has a lot of explaining to do when he gets home!!
Meanwhile…I have a little problem! The pressure cooker (which he usually uses) has just thrown a big hissy fit and soup has exploded all over the gas cooker!!! Oh dearrrrrr!!! He can clean that up while he explains to me the mystery behind the foundation sample.
I will update this so stay tuned…only 45 minutes till he gets home…hmm…
What do you think is the worst thing to find in your other half’s pockets? I think that I would be very disturbed if I found my Mum’s bra in his pockets…so good thing it’s just foundation I found today.
UPDATE : He claims he found it in one of my beauty drawers and that he thought it was lip balm!!! I don’t recall having any Guerlain samples EVER! But I shall watch him closely for the next few days…to see if he IS wearing the foundation LOLOL. And no, I know he won’t be cheating on me because he spends all his free time with me and he only works with a bunch of guys and obviously, because he loves me! 😛 Maybe he’ll buy me some Guerlain foundation…??
Happy Wednesday! Who needs words when the pictures say it all? I was planning to do a FOTD post but I was photobombed picture after picture by the other half!! These photos crack me up so I thought I’d share them!
In case you were thinking that he is posing rather camp-ish with the Hongky V fingers, he’s doing it to be funny because it is MY signature pose; not his!
When I first met him, I thought he looked like a gnome with his big round face with the rosy cheeks. Whaddya think?
“Stop it! Go away!” and he walked away…only to photobomb yet again!

Famous Last Words
Photobomber : *fist pump* Yeah, yeah, yeah!
FOTD-er : *shakes fist* You may have won this time, but I swear on my lipsticks, that I will be back and I will take you down!!!
