Recently, I would say in the past couple years my eyebrows have been getting a lot of attention.  I would say a bit more attention than they deserve.  Males, females, make-up artists, hairstylists, you name it I get comments on how nice my eyebrows are.

I am not saying I don’t appreciate the comment but I would never think to compliment someone on their eyebrows.  Pretty much the only thing that is full-figured on me is my brows.  They wouldn’t connect if I didn’t pluck them, but there would be a sparse array of hairs that if you were playing the lava game you would have a good chance of making it to the other brow if you tried.

I started plucking my eyebrows in 8th-9th grade.  At first I had a sweet rounded look, that thankfully I reconciled later for a more uneven natural look.  I guess I am thankful I never tried to over pluck, but to be honest it was really just because I was too lazy.  I frequently forget to pluck for weeks and then one day look in the mirror and think “Wow, so I’ve been walking around like this, OK”.  It’s just not a primary focus for me, I like to keep myself from looking like a Russian spy but I’m sure not going to make sure they are perfect every day.

I got these gems from a friend who told me I should open up an Instagram account dedicated to my eyebrows:

#browesdeezbrows #browenvy #CBrows #thickisbetterthanthin

I was impressed the only one I could think of was #ilikebigbrows(and I cannot lie)

I had no reason for this post other than being befuddled as to why people seem to be so enamored with my eyebrows.  I am sorry to have wasted the last 2-5 minutes of your life.  Here is a funny meme:


Thoughts of the Day

I turned 29 on Sunday, yes, Super Bowl Sunday.  It doesn’t feel that much different than 28 except I have been seriously contemplating my career for the past 6 months.  And my Facebook is blowing up with engagements, weddings and babies.

I feel like I have worked hard on myself for the past 2-3 years, and becoming the kind of person I want to be through daily habits and needed self criticism and learning what I want.  In that same sense it means it has now left me questioning what I want from my career and future, and a job that I enjoy going to every day and feel fully present.  So that is my next task!  Let’s hope it doesn’t take another 3 years…..

Preach it Charlie.

I still dream of one day opening a coffee shop of my very own, I even have the name picked out which shall remain a secret for fear of someone with money stealing it!!!

Thankful it is Thursday folks, half day tomorrow and then two of my besties come to visit me!  Fun times will be had by all.

Until next time!

Trivia Crack, Doctor Who and Coffee

I have found a new addiction, Trivia Crack.

There is something so gratifying about thinking you are intelligent!  And also very depressing to realize you know so little about geography and history, but you know Doctor Who is the longest running Sci-Fi show on TV…….no shame in that though Doctor Who nerd to the core!

But there will be future posts about my nerdy nature.  Fortunately I have a couple friends who also appear to be addicted and we are enabling each other with multiple games at the same time, love my friends!

I actually feel like Trivia Crack is like taking a class and it makes me realize I miss learning and I need to do something about that. I have been contemplating getting my personal training certification or a life coach certification, because I have no idea what I would go back to school for and get a masters in.  Does coffeeology exist?  I would study that.

Happy Friday folks, I am off to be a productive member of society!

The Never Ending Journey

Thanks for stumbling upon my blog and taking the time to read and peruse around.  I am writing this blog as a way to both track my personal journey for health and happiness as well as to help others with theirs.  I have been so grateful for all the bloggers out there in this thing we call the inter-web, and their raw honesty, that I was inspired to try to do the same.  Heck, if I help one person or make one person giggle, it was worth my time.


So what sort of things will I be blogging about?  Pretty much anything is fair game, but the topics I know will come up include: healthy recipes, paleo diet, gluten free diet, exercise, yoga, pilates, acne, natural skin care, whole foods, relationships, real-life struggles of an introverted, single, late twenty something, awkward girl-women, dogs, my family’s cats, tiny creatures my friends and family create (aka babies), life coaching, wellness coaching, supplements, hormones, and any other random topics I decide to write about.

So I’ll leave you with my favorite definition of calories I have found so far:
