Wimps vs Lasers and Antiwrinkle injections

Wimps vs Lasers and Antiwrinkle injections

My sister Yvette and I are known for being total wimps. We love hitting the salon, and we really like being pampered. It seems to me that the most uncomfortable services are the ones we want- or at least, they’re the ones that offer the best benefits. I really wanted to find painless laser hair removal in Melbourne – which is exactly what I came across.

Yvette’s looking for a few things on the side too. She is seven years older than me and loves telling me that one day I’ll look older than her if I don’t get onto anti wrinkle injections for crowsfeet. While I hope she’s joking, I also hope she’s not right. Anyway, I’m looking for a place that will take care of us both and answer some of my questions.

You wouldn’t believe some of the stuff Yvette gets up to to stop the years adding up on her face. Once, she bought this stuff that looked like it came out of a prehistoric tar pit- it was supposed to eliminate fine lines, pull out blackheads and banish impurities- but instead it ripped out her eyebrows and gave her hives. We aren’t really DIY girls, I think that’s pretty obvious.

Anyway, we found a place that seems to put as much value on looking after us as we do ourselves. It’s a lovely place where cosmetic nurses meet girls just like us every day. I had no idea that laser hair removal was so effortless. My legs have never been smoother and I love how quick the process went. I was prepared for the worst but it really wasn’t that bad at all. With her anti-wrinkle injections, Yvette is looking a lot less severe, too, the effect is really subtle, she just looks less tired and a lot more refreshed. As far as I know, she hasn’t been tempted to break out the face mask or take on any new DIY jobs either.

Beauty Equals Popularity, Obviously…

Okay, so, cool. I think we ALL know that high school is the most important part of anyone’s life, ever. This is where you learn all the important stuff, make friends that you’ll have for the REST OF YOUR LIFE, and it’s the place where you have to be popular. Like, if you’re not popular, life just isn’t worth living…and there are some places where being popular is more valuable than others.

The School Social is coming up, and as everyone knows, that’s a well of potential popularity right there. According to the chart I have in my bedroom, my popularity is currently sitting around 62%. Not as good as it could be. There was that incident with the exchange student…but we don’t talk about that.

I need to look good. Not just a nice dress either; I’ve been researching lip fillers in Bendigo for the last two weeks, because this is NOT something you can rush. Like, I’ve read all the celebrity magazines, and they’re pretty reliable, and THEY say that people sometimes try to get lip fillers on the cheap and they go to shady backstreet dealers and they end up looking horrible. So basically, if the place I go to has some kind of shop front, I’m…*probably* okay? Still, got to do my research. Got to be better than all the other girls, mostly Shareena Clements, since her mum owns some beauty clinic somewhere and she was bragging about how she gets quality laser hair removal for free. I can’t compete with free, but I CAN do my research and get better quality services. By my estimates, if I find a place in Bendigo for laser hair removal, that should give me about 6%, if I’m able to show it off. Lip fillers should give me about 7%…maybe I’ll see about the eyebrows. I need every advantage I can get basically. CANNOT waste social night.
