Review: VAVAVOOM Waxing Body Art Studio

I’m an Instagram creeper. I have zero shame. 

I somehow came across this business called VAVAVOOM in Atlanta. I knew it was black owned and black run, which hasn’t held much merit to me over the last few years, as I haven’t had great experience with black businesses. I still always try to support then though, because we truly do need support! 

After doing my research, I found that it’s a small business run by Kimberly Grimes, and SHE does all the waxing, the business, EVERYTHING. She started it herself, and she mans the fort solo. I dig that. Everything she uses is pink (which I love), her IG page seems fun and light (look her up, @vavavoomatl), and I had to cop and appointment.

I contacted her via the number provided on the site, and she was prompt with getting me in and set up. She works noon to midnight appointment only, which was perfect for me since I work 7a-7p and most business are closed when I get off. I set up my appointment for one of my off days in the afternoon, and we got the thing going.

I arrived at the shop, and she came out to greet me. She’s beautiful with natural hair and just a chill vibe about her. We went in, and on her chalkboard wall, she wrote “WELCOME, KIA!” And she had women-positive artwork all over the studio. Booty, nakedness, and women everywhere. Yes! Then, she offered me AND Hubs a glass of champagne. Customer service at its best! I sipped wine as we got the preliminary questionnaire done, then I stripped. She had a heated washcloth with peppermint oil ready for me just in case I wanted to freshen up before she started. I was loving this experience already. 

This was my first full wax, meaning it was from front to back – except for a small triangle I was gonna have left in the front. She oiled up the area, and engaged in convo with me about life, men, and art. She kept my mind focused on other stuff so I wouldn’t be too whacked out about the pain from waxing, and even turned on my favorite Pandora station. Kimberly uses a new wax stick with each application, which is SO sanitary! The sticks and wax are both pink too! Bruh. I could sing about VavaVoom. 

My vulva looked beautiful after she finished. I was left with a small triangle that was tapered perfectly. She even used tweezers to make sure it was straight! 

I really love VAVAVOOM. I’ve already made a point to go every month or so as needed. Wonderful service, Kimberly is such a beautiful person, and the work done is gorgeous. I’m obsessed! 

Kimberly is also launching an ingrown hair serum called Venom. Be on the lookout for its official launch on 3/21! Go to the site, pick your design, and call her to book your appointment!

I’m Back! 

It’s been a while! Sorry folks! 

We moved into our first place, I started my new job, and I’ve been getting adjusted. Needless to say, I didn’t have a whole lot of time to write. 

Nor did I have a whole lot of drive to be intimate with Hubs. I told myself we were gonna have sex multiple times a week plus some. While that stands true, life has bogged us down to where it’s more like a duty or chore for me and it’s not as enjoyable as I would like. 

I received some advice recently: Don’t let anything or anyone get in the way of enjoying your spouse. It’s so true. Life is gonna happen. Our spouse and his/her body is supposed to be our refuge and our getaway. We are supposed to use sex as our release, our pleasure, and our safe place where nothing else matters.

I hope this helps someone today! I’m gonna take my own advice when he gets back home! 

Product Review: Jimmy Jane Iconic Pocket Vibrator

Since being married, I haven’t been able to play with my toys as much… Nor have I really needed to. But when Jimmy Jane had their End of the Year sale and had the Iconic Pocket vibrator for $5 from the original $35?! I couldn’t pass that up at all.

So I purchased the pocket vibe, and it arrived a few days later. I’m used to my Jimmy Jane Iconic Bullet, but since this one was a bit pricier, I wanted to find out why. The bullet has pretty strong vibrations, which I love. Other bullets I’ve tried were just… Weak and useless. Pissed me off. The pocket vibe arrived in typical Jimmy Jane fashion, a plain brown box that encased my vibrator, which was wrapped in white tissue paper with a pink JJ sticker on it. The vibe was inside a box with a photo of it, and a single double A battery was sent with it. Score.

This vibe is a good size, maybe 4 inches, with a head that has 4 little nubs on the top. You twist the bottom to open, turn off, and power on. I didn’t really like the fact that it only has one power setting, as I’m used to multiple, but I figured it might be ok.

Once I put the battery in, I powered it on. It’s not as quiet as the rest of my toys, which was new as well. The vibration was very powerful for it to be a small toy! It was pretty impressive. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the most powerful vibrator ever, I would probably rank it at an 8. I was trying to figure out when I was gonna get a chance to use this thing since Hubs and I are together every day. So, I took care of him, then I would be free to take care of myself.

I went in the bathroom, closed the door, and turned it on. Hubs was in the bedroom in the bed, roughly 7 feet away from the bathroom. He said he couldn’t really hear it on the other side of the door. Guess it just sounds pretty loud when you’re close to it, but that’s a good thing you can’t hear it farther away.

For a clitoral vibrator, this thing does the job. I personally prefer a strong vibe, but this one is the first that I’ve tried that is TOO strong. I typically pull back my clitoral hood and work directly on the clitoris, but the Iconic Pocket was too strong for that, to the point that it was painful. I decided to try with the toy just on the clitoral hood, and it worked perfectly fine. The orgasm was great, but took a bit of time (as I did this solely for research purposes and was analyzing everything… Lol). When I finished, I told Hubs that it felt like the sensation of my ears ringing, but on my crotch. He laughed at me… I was so serious. You ever sit in a massage chair too long and your back starts tingling and sort of itching? That’s how it felt. STRONG.

The Iconic Pocket was an awesome vibrator overall. It provided some amazing vibration and is compact enough to be hidden or taken in your purse. Of course I wish it had more than one power level, but it gets the job done regardless. I think I may still love the Iconic Bullet a little more, but this one will more than suffice!

FML Friday

It’s been a long time since I’ve been absolutely mortified. Today was one of those days.

So I had to replace my wedding band because a couple of stones are missing, and the new one was being shipped. I couldn’t find the tracking info either, but I knew it was being sent to my dad’s house via FedEx.

I also forgot that I had other packages sent to my dad’s house.

So he texts me today, telling me that I have a small package that arrived today via FedEx. He asked if I wanted him to open it, I said “Yeah!” I was so excited!!!

He texts me back…

Sigh. My vibrator from JimmyJane arrived via FedEx… I didn’t know. OH MY GOODNESS. I could have died.

Moral of the story: open your own mail.

That is all.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It’s 2015 y’all!!! We made it to another year! My resolution is…

Ok I lied. I don’t do resolutions… However, Hubs and I made an agreement for a sexual goal this year. Today starts our first New Year as a married couple, and we are gonna do what married folk do.

Our goal? Have sex a minimum of 300 days of this coming year. If not 300 days, 300 times. Doable? I think yes. I’m excited!!! Hubs is too. Of course we are gonna continue to explore and expand and enjoy each other. This is gonna be amazing!!!

What are your sexual resolutions? Of you don’t have one, figure one out!

Late Night Thoughts – 12.7.14

I’m thrilled that we currently have a 3 or 4 night streak going on with sex. Only reason I noticed was because I was wondering why I’ve been so nice.

“I’ll wake you up in the morning, baby. What time do you need me to get you up? Oh, I’ll get up at 0645, put on clothes, run down and grab you breakfast, and make sure you’re fed.”

I might as well have offered to suck his toes and iron his clothes for the next week. I’m too BALLER for this.

Moral of this story: happy wife, happy life. And apparently sex equals happiness, which equals me being less of a horrid bitch as often.

Are you nicer to your partner/spouse after a romp or two? What’s the longest sex streak you’ve had where you had sex EVERY DAY? A week? Two days? A month? (That’s excessive.)
