Man, it was COLD this weekend!  That doesn’t bode well for how intense this Winter is going to be.  I’m really not looking forward to it, but I live in Michigan, so what can I do right? LOL  Not as cold this morning.  Had a nice walk with Chico over by the train depot along the tracks.  Peaceful.

I didn’t post any shaves last week, so I’m getting back into the swing of things today.  This mornings shave was pretty darn good.  Pulled out Mickey Lee’s Bee Witched.  LOVE everything about this soap.  The scent, the lather, the skin feel, the cushion & glide.  Definitely need to pick up another scent from them.

Paired the Fat Boy with a Treet Platinum.  Haven’t used that blade since 2014 if I recall correctly.  Sharp blade.  Not as smooth as the Astra, but not harsh either.  had the Fat Boy set on ‘4’ initially, then dialed down to ‘3’ for the last two passes.  Had a couple days growth to deal with but the Treet handled it well.  I did get a small vertical nick on my neck just behind my right ear but it was user error.  I was streaming old school jams and “Freddy Jackson – Rock Me Tonight” came on and suddenly it was karaoke at the Apollo LOL  But I digress 😉

It is definitely feeling like Fall these last few days.  Actually had to pull out the long sleeves and socks!  But it’s not going to last, weather guy just predicted several upcoming days of 80+ temps so Summer has gotten an extension.  I’m not complaining.  Although I love Fall, I have never been a fan of Winter.  At all.

I awoke to the radio playing a remix of SWV singing “Anything (You Want Me To)” with a surprising appearance of Wu-Tang members Ol’ Dirty Bastard & Method Man!  How have I never heard this before?  Anyway, so I went into the shave with the Killa Bees (Wu-Tang) in my head and I chose the soap appropriately.  I absolutely love Bee Witched by Mickey Lee.  It creates some of the densest, yogurt-y lather of just about any soap I have ever used.  The lather is simply incredible.  And the scent.  Oh man.  If you like the scent of cocoa, even a little bit, you are going to LOVE this soap.  I swear it makes me want to devour a huge bowl of Cocoa Krispies every time!  One of my top 5 soaps.

Third shave on the Astra SP blade.  Still plenty sharp.  Maybe a tad less smooth.  But then again it was working against a 3 day growth so the smoothness was probably on par.  I’m gonna push this one to four shaves, just as a test.  I like living dangerously… LOL

“It’s the first of the month… so cash your checks and come on!” – Bone Thugs. That’s right it’s the first, so stay away from grocery stores because it is going to be a nightmare!  Especially with the holiday around the corner also!  Maybe it’s just where I live but MAN I would rather starve a day than go to the store on the first!

It’s Hump day again!  Mid-week so I needed something to kick me into “getting ready for the weekend mode”.  Mickey Lee’s soap is just what I needed!  I haven’t really had this soap that long.  I think this only my 3rd time shaving with it, but I can already definitely say this soap makes my favorite lather!  That’s a pretty bold statement considering all of the great lathering soaps I have in my obsession.  And this isn’t a knock at any of them.  Just giving props!  This lather is perfect for me and the way I shave.  Easily generated, thick, yogurt-y, dense lather!  And I could go on and on about the scent of this soap.  If you haven’t smelled it, what the ‘H’ ‘E’ double hockey sticks are you waiting for?

2nd shave on the Ninja blade.  Still very sharp and decently smooth.  Minor buffing in the problem areas.  The Ninjas seems to stay pretty consistent through 3 shaves for me.  Pretty sure I could actually push this blade to 4-5 shaves.  Definitely 4.  But feh.. blades are still super cheap right?  3 and out is my motto!

Happy Hump Day!!
