Girly Nite

" You really need to take care of yourself" the Professor told me with a sigh recently.
I think he was making a point of things after I had used Mary's puppy shampoo to wash my hair. Or was it when he caught me going out with my pyjamas tucked underneath my trousers, anyhow it was some such event that prompted the comment.
Last night he decided that enough was enough and that drastic action was called for.
" Tonight" he informed me seriously ( over a cup of tea and slice of marks and spencers carrot cake) " we are doing girly things?"
My mind was boggled somewhat!
What were we going to do?
Have our nails done ? Colour our hair? ( what's left of it)
Watch a rom com in our dressing gowns whilst eating popcorn?
Get pissed on cheap white wine?

Oh no, the Professor had something more riveting and special in store!


Facial beauty wraps! 

Yeah........

It was a big job

  15. Oh honey .. did your pores shrink ? Is your skin as soft as a baby's bottom ?
    Be careful, it can sometimes be habit forming .. soft skin and all that .

  16. Wow! That is one of the most bizarre images I've seen on this blog yet. And there is a lot of competition! Doesn't the Prof KNOW that beauty comes from within? :-) You have however shamed me into washing my hair after 12 days (red face). Now, where's the puppy shampoo....?

  26. Never seen them before - looks like damp baking parchment to me.

    Maybe I'm more low maintenance than I thought.

  27. Are you trying to scare the living daylights out of your followers?

    ReplyDelete
  28. You delight me endlessly.

  29. Upon first glance I was reminded of a cross between Hannibal Lecter and Jason of horror film legend. How did the dogs react? Are you all glowing and dewy now? -Jenn

  30. There was an article about women paying more for the same product than men pay because of the 'pink' packageing. Shampoo razors- that kind of thing. Here in France the dog's shampoo is even more expensive - for silky white fur. If I swap to the dog's product will it stop the tics and fleas?

  31. The peel off face masks are my favourite

  32. Surely something has slipped?

  33. Charming ... save one of those things for Halloween. Was it helpful? I have never tried and could use, IF they work.

  34. Hannibal the cannibal ! X

  35. You're a good sport, John. I'm not big on the girly stuff either...

    ReplyDelete
  36. For a minute there,with that mask, I thought you were joining the cast of the Walking dead....hee hee. In the meantime. I really came here to send you a link. Perhaps it might be time to treat a certain lady for her birthday?

  40. OMG! I adore this! I agree with all the Hannibal comments! Love that your partner cares for you so!

  41. I would have gone for the rom-com and popcorn instead, to be honest. -made me chuckle to read you've washed your hair with puppy soap. I've resorted to using a bar of soap when the shampoo bottle turns out to be empty.

  42. Oh no - sorry John - what a laugh, just hope no-one came to the door while you were wearing it ! Did you change into your Noel Coward silk dressing gown and cravat afterwards?
    Did the prof have a wrap too?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Yes the ptof had his own but efused a selfie

    ReplyDelete
  44. At least it was not one of those sticky things - one of those would have pulled like the deuce on your facial hair! You are such a good sport :)

    1. I think John should book a ' full face threading session' for the prof. If we can do it, they can do it.

  45. Well you must have higher standards than me...I can't honestly remember the last time I had a face pack! Arilx

  47. Beauty wraps! That's something I've never done. I've applied the facial cream mask once or twice, but mostly I just wash my face and apply a little moisturiser. I'm not a very girly girl. Thankfully, my mum gave me good skin.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I can always count on you two for a good chuckle and you have the balls to photograph it as well.

    ReplyDelete
  49. LOL. You are hysterical. You look like the masked killer in some old Hammer House of Horror episode.

    A bar of soap is about as exotic as I ever get.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Looks like fun, I have to build up for my girly nights as they involve much waxing of legs ... and things!

    ReplyDelete
  51. You should wear the facial wraps all the time. They make you look even more handsome than normal.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Did that mask make your beard all soft too ;-)

    Last time I used one of those I came out all red and blotchy .... not the result I was after at all.

    ReplyDelete
  53. That pic was a little scary. I hope it was worth it!
