shiny legs and other life skills
Me, Caitlin, and Ashley. A few of my favorite grasshoppers.
A few months ago I taught a group of young women about the trials of life, how to face them, how to plow through them with grace, and why they make us better, stronger people. I was intrigued at how well I was getting through to one girl in particular. She was so involved with my words. I thought to myself, "nice work Amy, nice work". I felt like for once that I had hit a chord with these young grasshoppers. I shared a piece of my life, and they would benefit. I closed my lesson and opened the discussion up to the girls. Four or maybe five seconds passed, and then the girl who was so involved in my lesson raised her hand and said these words..."Sister Wilde, how do you get your legs so shiny?"
That my friends is where one lesson officially ended, and another began. So, I taught them the ways of hard work and skill to gain a sheen and shimmer on their legs. It is not as easy as one might think, but the end result is very worth it.
3 or 4 blade razor, spend a little money and get a nice one
Soap legs with Dove soap
Step 2: GENTLY scrub legs with pumice stone. I can tell you from a bad experience that you do not want to scrub too hard or for too long in one spot...just..ya...trust me on this one.
Step 3: Rinse
Step 4: Lather shave gel
Step 5: Shave, and then shave again
Step 6: dry them legs off and spread on some body butter ( I looove The Body Shop for this stuff)
Step 7: Throw on a skirt and shine shine shine!!!
