Another day a friend asked me what I miss most about Brazil ,
Well ,apart the normal things as Family , Friends and Weather , I Must say all my life I was spoiled by Brazilian "take care of yourself" (or pay somebody to do so) culture and I miss it here.
The one thing I can confirm is how good it feels to give your body a little care and love.
It’s not as bad as you think. If you get your eyebrows waxed, you can probably stand the pain of a Brazilian wax.It might sound untrue or funny to have the hair from all your private parts removed and I can guess most of girls who don’t try it has more to do with the fact that we have to be fully exposed to a stranger .Right?
But, all you have to do is think about the results.
Most women, of any social class, have both their nails and toes perfectly manicured in my country, even when staying at home.
I can easily find some places in Ireland (charging 12 times more than in Brazil) that does Brazilian wax, but getting a Brazilian from a Brazilian has no price, its as if we are taught the art of waxing in Brazilian elementary school. It's part of our culture, and taught to us since we are 12. Smooth is way better.
Of course that the fact we go to the beach makes it more sense, so we get use to it and I must say, I really find myself much more feminine( and sexy) when I have everything done, including my toes, nails, hair and sometimes a massage...
There are some Brazilians working around, the problem is that they are so busy. The fact I have kids and not too much time to myself makes it always difficult to get an appointment.
I guess it can seem a funny thing to miss, but being truly honest , I miss myself , the way I used to be which makes such a difference in all aspects of my life.
Hopefully I will find myself again, or at least find a good esthetician ...
