ONE little MOMMA: Well That's Slightly Embarrassing

Well That's Slightly Embarrassing



I think you guys know me well enough that you can appreciate when I share embarrassing things, right? I swear when I was younger, embarrassing things happened to me all of the time. Thankfully as I've gotten older, they seem to have become a little fewer and farther between. I'm guessing that is a result of me caring less and not me actually doing fewer ridiculous things, because I still do.

So on to the story (stories, really). Yesterday I got out of the shower and was drying off. Typically post shower, I apply some kind of tanning product at least a few days a week. I almost always put one on my face, but I'll go days between applications on the rest of my body. Recently I've been using this aerosol tanning product for just my face and neck, and it's been working well. It splatters a little sometimes, but for the small area of my face, it's pretty good. 

So I pull my hair back out of the way and then grab the can and start spraying my face. And something's not right. It feels different and smells different, but when I looked at my face it didn't look very different. So I sprayed some more, and a lot of it got concentrated under my nose (not a cute look), but otherwise I couldn't tell the usual difference in skin color. And then it hits me! I was using my Batiste brown dry shampoo! The cans look so similar that I had grabbed the wrong one. My face and neck were now covered in this brown powdery substance, and I had specifically created a mustache as well. So shockingly ridiculous of me! Thankfully the stuff isn't permanent, so I quickly hopped back in the shower and started over. Sheesh.

After I showered and actually got the right products on, I went to get dressed. I was planning on wearing a new dress to church, and it was much more fitted than my usual choices. I opted to try wearing a pair of Spanx that I've rarely worn, just to smooth things out and to feel a little more comfortable in something so snug. I put them on, they fit as intended (I believe), and we went to church. 

Oh. My. Gosh. During the first meeting of church, I kept thinking about how uncomfortable I felt, just in general. Why is my headache getting worse? Why am I feeling short of breath? Why am I dying to get out of here? And then I realized it was the Spanx. I swear the longer I wore them, the more they contracted! It felt like I was wearing a corset. I was miserable! I lasted through the first hour, but after that meeting ended, I'd had enough. With two hours of church left, Sunday School to teach, and life to live, there was no way I was staying in those ridiculous constricting undergarments. So I headed straight for the bathroom and undressed right there in a stall. Into my bag went the Spanx, and out I came a free woman. Thankfully the dress wasn't that clingy and I felt fine without the extra lining. But even if I hadn't, I'd rather have worn my jacket the rest of the day than keep those on. I got so many compliments that day on my dress, but every time someone mentioned it, all I wanted to do was talk Spanx instead. I didn't. But I wanted to. 

Anyways, I think Spanx have their place, and from what I hear now, I just need to size up a few sizes to get the smoothing effect rather than the squeezing one. Props to you if you can wear them at all. I think they work, but my whole self could not suffer through them. 

BUT, speaking of Spanx, you know what Spanx item I can get behind? These faux leather leggings. The funny thing is that I also just bought these Spanx leggings, and I have nothing but good things to say about them. They don't squeeze you to death, but they do pull things in. The sheen is just right, and they are really comfortable. I bought them for our trip to Italy next week (I swear, everything I'm buying for that trip is black), but I wanted to try them out before we left. They really are as good as they say! 

If you love Spanx, I hope you don't have hard feelings. I just had to share a little crazy with you on this Monday. Have a great start to your week!


  1. Love all your accessories!


  2. I hear ya on this post. I like the idea of spanx but not actually wearing them. At Target, I found a great, non-constrictive substitute with Jockey. Their camisoles and slipshorts (and slips)fit so well and provide me with the security I'm looking for while being absolutely comfortable. I wear the slipshorts under skirts, dresses and sometimes pants.

  3. What is the spray on tanning product you use for your face?

  4. Love this color combo and yes this is pretty dreamy lol.I agree that it's a perfect color for multiple seasons and I love the other styling options you listed too.Best essay writing service

    Read my testimony!!! Getting ex back after a breakup. Am Cora L. Sanchez 30 from UK, my boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 22 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again..
