High brow

The pendulum has swung from skinny eyebrows (think “Charlie’s Angels”, circa 1976)  to the more natural look I was born with (me, circa 1974).

I fought with my eyebrows for years, trying to fashion them into the pencil-thin arches the cover girls wore.

I never quite got there.

I stopped short of the pencil thin lines due to, well, pain, and the the time it took me at home to achieve it.

Man, am I glad.

Yesterday, I opened my mailbox to find Priyanka Chopra gracing the cover of “Vogue” with thick, dramatic, beautiful eyebrows.

My friends who were able to coax their brows into the thin lines I so prized now rely on their eyebrow pencil for definition.

Sadly, eyebrows grow sparse with age.

It’s fun, cool and hip to follow fashion trends and to feel up to date with the latest look.

Who didn’t want Farah’s feathered hairstyle or Jaclyn’s slim, defined brows?

But now, I want Priyanka’s gorgeous, natural look.

If only I had put the tweezers down, sooner.

He loves her, but he can never forgive her for what she did to his friend… Grayson Reardon blames Amy McDonald for the death of his friend, Smitty, who was killed on patrol in Afghanistan just after Amy broke up with him via Skype. Gray has always loved Amy but stayed away because Smitty saw her first. In an attempt to avenge his friend, Gray’s tricks Amy into accepting his marriage proposal and then dumps her at the altar, humiliating her in front of her family and friends. But Gray is torn between his love for Amy and his loyalty to Smitty, especially since Smitty’s tall tales about his relationship with Amy don’t quite mesh with reality, and—now that it’s too late—Gray begins to realize he’s made a terrible mistake. She loves him, but he betrayed her, and she’s determined to move on…somehow. Amy has always loved Gray and broke up with Smitty because of it. But she feels guilty for what happened to him, so even though she learns what Gray has planned, she goes through with it, allowing him to publicly humiliate her. Now that it’s over, and he’s had his revenge, she’s convinced Gray hates her. Determined to purge him out of her life forever, she throws away every reminder of him and concentrates on her work. She almost succeeds—until fate intervenes, and Amy discovers that things aren’t always what they seem
