I make sure my eyebrows are done.
Last fall I finally sucked it up and went to my local beauty boutique with what ailed me…eyebrows that aren’t just sparse from overpluck-age when I was a teenager, but are nearly non-existent due to lupus.

As in, I likely only need my two hands to count how many follicles I have on each side. 🙁
So, I entered, I sat and I left…much poorer in the pocketbook and much richer in the esteem. They taught me a new skill that would improve my appearance, thus my self-esteem would step up right alongside. (note: the girl made me look like a goddamn gorilla…but I went home and did what every woman with a bad haircut does…started from scratch)
Dude, you thought I don’t leave the house without makeup?
My question to you is….
WHAT CAN YOU NOT LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT?
Favourite gloves? Particular purse? Lip balm? Mp3 player?
