Well, the woman I exhibited next to was going on and on about her eyebrow tattoos, and "me" being blessed quite blonde sans visible eyebrows, I was intrigued and put that on my must do list I didn't get to yet!

Its the year of being selfish and self care, so link up for tips on: choosing the perfect eyelash extensions
I'm winking at you!
