As you may already know I had my eyebrows tattooed yesterday. As it's unlike me to spend more than a tenner on myself you'll have to forgive me for going on about it! I'm a natural blonde with pathetically sparse brows and always loathed the look of myself without my eyebrows penciled on so when I met a technician several years ago offering semi-permanent make-up locally I leapt at the chance to get mine done. I can't tell you how good it feels not to be constantly checking your reflection for a missing eyebrow after being in a sweaty club, a rain-sodden festival, a humid holiday destination, after swimming or just being out and about.
Over the past few months I noticed that they'd started to fade and I was again having to use an eyebrow pencil so I saved to get them redone. It sure beats faffing about with a make-up mirror and a pencil every few hours. On my dear friend, Christina's advice I've gone for slightly thicker eyebrows this time and I'm liking them a lot (or I will be when the crustiness subsides).

If you want to find out more I've included a link here to the fabulous local salon I use. If, like me, you're forever drawing on your eyebrows I'd definitely recommend saving up and having it done.

To avoid strangers focusing on my brows today I wore one of my loudest dresses so the attention was all on the frock and not face. It paid off and I was stopped by several older ladies in town who recalled wearing a similar dress back in the late 1960's. Sadly not one of my new friends had kept the clothes of their youth.
Right, it's Friday and a bottle of vino and a home-made pizza await. Have a wonderful weekend, one and all!
