Tips For When You’re WFH AKA Waxing From Home

So just before the quarantine happened you had a wax appointment and then, rescheduled. Lesson? Once this is all over you will never do that again!

For those of us who wax a very certain particular part of our bodies, we know the struggle of maintaining baby smooth skin.

And now, our partners do too!

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with growing out your hair and letting it be free, no matter where your sprouts are located. BUT if you’re like me, you might not feel quite so comfortable and are likely desperately wishing you hadn’t taken your easy access to wax salons for granted. So, how to deal?

We scoured Instagram and Youtube for the best at-home wax kits and tips for Brazilians. Check them out below!

Get a good exfoliator.

According to P&G’s site Reward me, exfoliating helps soften body hair and opens up hair follicles. Doing this before a wax will make the process easier and less painful.

Plan for the pain.

People don’t cringe at the sight of Steve Carrel getting a wax in “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” for nothing. Waxing HURTS. But the process can be made a bit more pleasant if you take a painkiller like Alieve half an hour before waxing and if you apply a numbing cream to the area you want to wax. And don’t be silly by trying to wax during or a few days before your period!

Don’t let yourself sweat.

Make sure you keep the area dry and clean during removal. Do so by avoiding creams and moisturizers and instead apply baby powder. Powder will make the removal process all the more easy once your done and have strings of wax left over.

One of the top reviewed sugaring kits on Etsy.

“At home sugaring success! I would have never done this at home if it wasn’t for Covid. Now, I don’t think I’ll ever need to pay a salon again! This is a quality product!” – Etsy review.

This news my first time sugaring ever (I’ve brevet waxes either) all things considered I think it went well. I definitely think next time I’m going to leave the sugar I’m not using in the fridge to help it stay stiffer longer when I use a new piece.” – Etsy reviewer.

And there you have it. Now, let’s not fool ourselves, waxing on your own will likely be way less pleasant and much more difficult than it is at a salon, but it is possible! Hang in there, Sis.

Met Gala 2021 Is Happening And Amanda Gorman Is Set To Host The America-Themed Fashion Event

Met Gala 2021 Is Happening And Amanda Gorman Is Set To Host The America-Themed Fashion Event

It’s 2021 and the Met Gala is back this year – after being canceled in 2020 thanks to a pandemic – with superstar poet Amanda Gorman being eyed to host the fashion event of the year. Given the 23-year-old’s show-stopping performance at the inauguration, the theme fittingly will be a celebration of America and American designers.

The Met Gala will return in 2021 with a very special guest as host.

Vogue’s “Oscars of Fashion” famously takes place on the first Monday of May. However, this year it’s been pushed back to September 13, in hopes that life will have returned to something closer to normal by then.

Epic poet Amanda Gorman is reportedly in talks to co-host the event alongside Tom Ford, who is the academy’s president. The breakout star of President Biden’s inauguration, Gorman is on the cover of the magazine’s May issue and the subject of a relentlessly glowing profile inside.

The black-tie gala, which raises funds for Met’s Costume Institute, is normally fashion’s biggest night and sees guests from Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B to Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and even Maluma.

The event was canceled in 2020 thanks to a global pandemic.

The world’s most glamorous party was canceled in 2020 because of COVID-19, which was (and still is) raging the planet at the time. There was a virtual event in place of the 2020 event, with celebs like Julia Roberts, Priyanka Chopra and Amanda Seyfried showing off their looks from home and stars like Mindy Kaling and Adam Rippon taking part in the #MetGalaChallenge, recreating looks from past years.

This year’s event will draw inspiration from all things USA.

The theme of this year’s Met Gala has not been announced, but Page Six says the night will be devoted to honoring America and American designers, following the 18-month-long COVID crisis in this country.

Recent past themes for the event have included “Camp: Notes on Fashion” (2019), “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” (2018), and “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between (2017). And don’t forget 2016, when Zayn Malik wore robot-arms to Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.

Kid Cudi Wore A Dress To Pay Tribute To Kurt Cobain During SNL Appearance

SNL

There’s no doubt that SNL has been the stage of some pretty groundbreaking performances and fashion moments. This past weekend was no different. While appearing as the late-night show’s musical guest the 37-year-old rapper of Mexican-American descent wore outfits a la late Nirvana rocker, Kurt Cobain.

Kid Cudi’s made a pretty big retro fashion statement for his Saturday Night Live musical performances this weekend.

For his first performance, which featured his song “Tequila Shots,” Cudi wore a t-shirt featuring the image of a late SNL cast member Chris Farley. Farley died in 1997 at age 33 from an overdose of cocaine and morphine. Over the shirt, Cudi wore a green cardigan, which many Twitter users were quick to note resembled one Kurt Cobain wore.

Cobain died by suicide in 1994.

During his performance of “Sad People,” Kid Cudi changed into a floral dress, which he confirmed in a tweet was in honor of Cobain.

Cudi’s took place on the same week of the anniversary of Cobain’s death, which occured on April 5.

“Virgil [Abloh] designed the dress for me,” Kid Cudi explained about the dress. “I told him I wanted to show love to Kurt w a floral print sundress and this man-made a masterpiece.”

Cudi also shared that he intends to collaborate with Abloh on his fashion label Off-White. The dress will be included.
