The Final Confession!

I know that Ki, writer of Les Pensées de Ki! and Dressing up for Life, has long been a fan of the Friday Confessionals so I think it only fitting that she's the blogger to end the series. With no more volunteers I think Aunty Brown is finally going to go into retirement. Don't feel sorry for her, she'd only milk the sympathy. Anyway, let's find out what naughty secrets Ki has been bottling up all this time.

Confession is good for the soul, go ahead and unburden yourself! I promise I won’t judge.

I’m sure I commit a million beauty-related sins but here are two off the top of my head...

Sin #1: Come winter and I can go weeks without waxing! As long as the world cannot see my hairy legs, they don’t exist. Right?! It doesn’t help that waxing in France costs 10 times of what it did in India!

Just remember to get them done *before* you swank out of the house in your best gear!

Sin #2: I don’t wear sunscreen. I know I should and I even bought a tube of SPF 50 but somehow, I always forget!

There, don’t you feel better now?

Sort of? *wonders where the tube of sunscreen is*

Aunty Brown has a few more questions though; it’s true that I’m the nosy type.

When was the last time you visited the hairdresser?

Erm, June? God, I should add this to my list of sins as well since my hair is now very shapeless and frumpy looking thanks to my many months of neglect!

Which trend still makes you cringe?

Definitely dark lipliner! Most Indian women seem to have just one lipliner - a dark maroon and they use it with every lipstick, be it a light pink or a dark brown!

Also lighter foundation on darker skintones - I think this also has to do with growing up in India, where everyone wants to be fair even at the risk of their face and neck looking like they belong to two different people!

It’s the day of a special occasion and you wake up with an enormous spot on your face. Do you fiddle or are you the master of disguise?

I fiddle! I know it is the worst thing to do when you have a pimple or whitehead but I just can’t leave them alone!

Let's not forget there are consequences to the fiddling...

When did you last wash your makeup brushes?

Umm, about a month ago?! Oops!


Thank you very much Ki for being my very last victim, pardon me, volunteer. In fact, thank you to everyone that has taken part in the Friday Confessional over the past 12 months, it's really been a lot of fun.


  1. The day when Aunty retires has not dawned yet! Let's just say that, for me, she has just decided to go on a prolonged holiday somewhere sunny, and is lounging by the pool incognito, taking mental notes of women's faux pas whilst seemingly asleep behind her large sunglasses.
    There, doesn't that make you think twice about what to pack for a winter sun break??

  2. I hope Aunty Brown isn't retiring, just going on a break! Thanks for letting me participate :)

  3. My eyeeeeeeeeeeees! What has been seen cannot be unseen, and I am duly traumatized by sin #1. So sorry to see Auntie Brown retire. Maybe she just needs a long winter's nap and will come back with the warm weather.

  4. I loved giving my confession so I too hope that Aunty Brown gets some more volunteers and comes back in 2012 to torture a few more brave soles. I always looked forward to Friday evenings reading these.

  5. @Nina: I love the idea of her going under cover to secretly spy wrong do-ers! The sunglasses are on ;)

    @Ki: Thank you so much for taking part. Aunty Brown will have a little rest for now, no doubt she has some ideas stashed away for a return!

    @Zuzu's Petals: Ha ha!! Shocking stuff indeed. Maybe she will be back, she does enjoy making a nuisance of herself :D

    @Marcia: Ah, thank you Marcia. I remember your eyeliner tale very well. Hopefully she'll be back in the future.
