On a side note, I have some 2008 pop culture-related recap posts on my other blog here and here.


A couple of people had posted questions related to my threading comment in my previous post. Yes, it totally works and I love it. I used to always get my brows waxed but I switched to threading a few years ago when I was on Accutane and my skin was too sensitive for waxing. It works great and they totally get all the little hairs. It's pretty quick too and not really painful at all - no more than waxing or tweezing. I guess the way it pulls out the hair compared to tweezing is much more gentle and won't cause the hair to grow back thicker like tweezing would. Also, the nice thing is that you don't look like a mess afterward - other than having to brush away all the little hairs off your face. I personally don't have any redness or irritation like I would with waxing.

Even though my skin isn't as sensitive now, I still have my brows threaded. It's only $8 where I go so it's a great deal!

You can see a pic of how they look on my other blog here. This was taken a few days after I got them done. A couple of warnings: 1) The lady that threaded my brows made them uneven which normally never happens and 2) they are filled in with a little bit of eyeshadow to make them look more full but the shape and all that is strictly from the threading.

P.S. Do you like how I keep referencing my other blog? I just don't have much readership over there so I'm trying to throw some readers over :)

Good luck to all the Disney runners this weekend! I'll be thinking of all of you. I most likely will be back at Disney for the 2010 Goofy Challenge (yikes!).

DOH! Thanks for the tag :)

Jan08 seems sooo long ago. I got start working on this!

BTW, all this daggone Twilight business, I actually borrowed the book from my library (I think more from shock that they had it available).

Now I have to get on-line to take a break from the book before I melt into a lusty puddle.

Audrey, I'm SO glad that HSM3 was one of your favorite 2008 movies too. I love it, and I'm not ashamed to proclaim my love to the world either!

Julianne said...

Your hair is so cute! I didn't know it was cut short recently! Looking forward to running more with you in 09!

Cindy said...

thanks for the tag! i'm glad you referenced your other blog b/c i lost the link when i changed templates a while ago. your brows look so awesome!!! i got turned away from a brow lady b/c she said there was nothing for her to do. huh? i look like oscar the grouch, what more does she want? anyway, maybe i should print out a pic of your brows so i can say 'this. i want this.'
ok, twilight? totally feel you on that. only seen the movie once--so far. but there will be more viewings for sure :) i thought about putting myself on the waiting list for the dvd.

I think the short hair is super cute! I've had mine short for a little over a year and am now ready to start growing it out again =). I go through cycles.

I would love to run the Disney marathon sometime.
