Several years ago, I had a very special occasion coming up, so I decided to get my brows waxed for the first time. This was right around the time that eyebrows were becoming a Thing, and since this particular occasion would include lots of fashionable people, I wanted to prove I still knew what was […]

It’s Time for a Serious Conversation About Eyebrows

It’s the time of year when most of us feel soul-shattering regret over our ‘choices’ during the holiday season, and we resolve to grit it out and Get In Shape. For many of us, this means spending an obscene amount of money on expensive workout gear — because it makes sense to assume a flashy […]
