What the heck is a Vagina Facial????!!!! #ThrowbackThursday

* I apologise in advance, it’s a bit crude, but was sooooo funny, I had to share this anecdote from today! If you are a very prim and proper person and don’t like to talk about sex, genitalia, and the like, click off now!

So there I was, innocently eating my lunch and browsing my Facebook news page.  I nearly choked as I read one post about my friend also discussing her gladness at having already eaten before being introduced to this subject.

Apparently a 74-year-old was on daytime TV discussing having a ‘Vagina Facial’ to please her 30-year-old lover!

Vagina facial… conjures up many images….

I couldn’t help it, at the staff room lunch table I asked, “What the heck is a Vagina Facial??!!”  There were plenty of flabbergasted faces, lots of ‘What on earth are you saying?’, ‘Say that again?’.

I googled it, and apparently its a new surgery for mature ladies for their, ahem, ‘lady gardens’, to counteract sagging and dryness!

Ok so that was kinda what I assumed it was going to be, but really? A Vagina Facial??!!

There’s always one who states the obvious, “Oh, thank God for that! You said facial and I had all sorts of weird ideas!  What, does a woman lay down and have someone else ‘rubbing themselves’ across her face??!!”

“Nah, that’s called being a lesbian!” piped up someone else.

Around the table, there was pure hysterics, and the staff sitting in the other area looked over, intrigued, but almost too scared to ask what the giggles were about!

So, what followed this was a whole crude discussion about what it could have been, and what it was.  I left at this stage, I had a class to bring in after lunch!

But, seriously, who on earth thought the name ‘Vagina Facial’ was a good idea in the first place??!! Vagi-lift, maybe, Tight-ina, Vagi-cial… anything but associating the face with ‘down below’ for a beauty treatment!

Honestly, I am still having disturbing images of what it could have been!

And, at 74, hats of to the woman! I hope her 30-year-old lover appreciated her ‘facial’!!!!


Sacha’s #Writespiration prompt this week…

This week tell your story using dialogue only.


“So, we gonna do it?”
“I dunno…”
“Don’t be boring, it’ll be easy! We wait until they go to bed, then creep downstairs… and wait!”
“But I’m too tired!”
“Listen, if you want to see if Father Christmas is real, then we’ve only got tonight…Come on! Seriously? Asleep in 10 seconds? Whatever!”



One Liner Wednesday – #1linerweds – Time

“How can six weeks of holiday speed past as if they were mere minutes, yet the one week leading up to them take, what feels like, a whole year to pass?”

For Linda’s #1linerweds challenge!


Colleen’s Poetry challenge this week gives us the prompt words:

Calm & Wild

Like sugar and spice,
Underneath is my wild side
All you see is calm

The calmness of the ocean
Belies its wild side

Emma Edit’s Blogger Survey

Emma, over at The Emma Edit has a survey she is looking for answers to, as she changes things in her blog.


I decided to take the survey, and invite you all to do the same, pinging back to her so she gets the results she needs – click here to get to the original post!

The questions are:

  1. On average, how many hours a day do you spend on your blog during the week? (including anything blog related like social media)
  2. On average, how many hours a day do you spend on your blog at the weekend? (including anything blog related like social media)
  3. Daily, how much time do you spend reading other people’s blogs?
  4. How often do you leave comments on other people’s posts?
  5. How many blogs do you follow?
  6. How often do you post on your blog?
  7. What social media accounts do you have to go alongside your blog?
  8. Do you have a posting schedule? How do you plan out your posts?
  9. What do you use to take pictures: phone camera? basic point-and-shoot camera?  DSLR camera?
  10. How do you promote your blog?

And here are my answers… I promise to be truthful! Even if I horrify myself!

  1. I think it can be, cumulatively, 2-3 hours a day, as I check my notifications and reader whenever I have a free moment, and if inspiration hits, I will write and schedule a post or 2.
  2. I think the weekend depends on whether we are doing anything else, but it can be, again cumulatively 3-4 hours every day, with the added time if I want to write anything out of my usual posts!
  3. See above, it is all part of my browsing and keeping up! It can be an hour of that time, or longer depending on how much my favourite bloggers have posted!
  4. I will always comment when I feel I have something to add to the post content! I don’t put a limit or a target on this, it depends on my time, and if a post resonates with me.
  5. At the last count, I follow 803 blogs, but I am not able to physically read EVERY post from those 800+ blogs! I have set my following so that I get emails for the blogs I NEVER want to miss! And I browse the reader when I can to keep up with the others.
  6. At the moment, I seem to have posted every day for whatever reason. But I don’t have a strict schedule, apart from my Friday healthy eating post and my Sunday Serene Sunday post. But the challenges I like to take part in mean that I will probably have something come up every day!
  7. Social media… I have FB, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Goodreads, Flipboard, StumbleUpon, Bloglovin’ and Tumblr…phew! They are all connected in some way to my Blog.
  8. I find writing by schedule is something I can’t do! I write from the heart to be honest, so when the fancy takes me, I will just write. I don’t spend ages planning my post, I just let the verbal diahorrea take hold, to be honest, then I reread and edit if I need to!
  9. I wish I had a dedicated camera to take fantastic photos, but to be honest, usually it’s my camera phone that provides the photos to my posts! Failing that, Pixabay!
  10. I think my blog has grown by word of mouth. I haven’t actively pushed it out there, but it has kind of grown by itself. I trust that means that people pop over, like what they read then decide to stay! Over 5000 followers, and just shy of 4000 of them are WP followers!

There you have it, my blogging heart on a plate in front of you! If you want to help Emma with her research, and are prepared to say what an addict you are to your blog, please, go ahead and visit her post at https://the-emma-edit.com/2017/07/17/blogger-survey-i-need-your-input/
