Touch’N Brow Shaver-Review

Happy Friday! I saw an online article awhile back about face shaving.  While it struck me as rather odd, it really did make sense. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/438397344959697711/

I thought it seemed like a strange idea, until I read that both Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe shaved their faces.

Being a menopausal woman has it’s challenges. One of it being excess facial hair.  I’ve tried all sorts of removal methods, most recently using the personal battery operated shavers. Those worked okay, but they don’t last very long.

I love these shavers!  While they are made for your eyebrows, you can use them elsewhere on your body. A package of 3 cost me $5.29 at Sally Beauty.Touch n’ Brow shaver.

I do use these on my eyebrows, but they work great on my upper lip, checks, forehead,etc. They also exfoliate your skin, which besides the hair removal is a huge plus.

They are so easy to use.  Just use on clean skin, you don’t need water or any type of shaving cream.

I wonder if these were around in the 1970’s? I use to use a Flicker and put cellophane tape over half of it and use it on my eyebrows.  It worked for the most part, except the time I was in a hurry, and shaved off most of my right eyebrow. Not a good look for a 14 year old girl. Of course that was the same year I tried thinning out my crazy curly hair with some thinning shears, and cut most of my hair off the right side of my head. Yeah, for the entire ninth grade I wore my hair in a pony tail. It’s really funny because I didn’t use the Flicker on my legs. That and the fact I was pretty much stoned for all of the ninth grade. Hey, it was the 70’s!

Coming of Age in the Watergate Era and Awaiting the Trump Impeachment

Great insight!

Watching the Wheels

February 24, 2017

I’m kinda old (I turned 53 this week), so forgive me if I appear a bit jaded by the current state of corrupt politics. You see, I came of (political) age in the Watergate era so I know exactly how this Trump mess is gonna end.

unknown

When Richard Nixon won reelection on November 7, 1972, I was an 8-year-old third grader at Atherton Elementary in Dekalb County, Georgia. Please do not tell anyone this, but I supported Republican Nixon over Democrat George McGovern. The truth is Nixon’s nose reminded me of Bob Hope’s. That’s all it took. I was unaware that the “White House Plumbers” had already broken into the Watergate Hotel and begun their crime spree under the guidance of Tricky Dick and his funky beak. In those days Republicans couldn’t get the Russians to break into Democratic National Committee files. They had to do it…

Defining Trump-Does he threaten our democracy?

This is a great read.  Lots of good points.

By Jason Taylor The media and Trump are predictably strange bedfellows. Trump could not have been elected without the relentless and obsessive reportage the fifth estate has so generously given to him. That said, the extradition yesterday of politically corrupt Ukrainian billionaire Dmytro Firtash, who is complicit in the shadowy events of Trump’s campaign, will […]
