The Savvy Reeder


While the rest of America sits in freezing, snowy weather, the fine folks of Tucson are enjoying sunshine and warmth. With the summer coming upon us quickly, the short-wearing season is rapidly on the way too. With more time spent at the pool, outdoors, and baring more skin, it's time to talk about waxing. It took me until my 34th trip around the sun to finally embrace waxing. After years of shaving and dealing with irritated, razor-burned skin, I made the switch to getting a wax. I'm not quite ready for the laser level of hair removal, yet. Until I make the final jump, it's waxing for me.
