Shaping your Eyebrows Saga

This might seem very very trivial. But this is one of the most important things that most Indian girls are very particular about once they are 13ish. In Dublin I hunted for an Indian eyebrow threading lady (ok let me not be sexist, or a guy) for 40 days, by then my eyebrows had over grown and shapeless. Then a friend of mine visited this tanning salon where they did eyebrow waxing. I was like pretty apprehensive about waxing my eyebrows, what if one wrong move and it totally disappears. But then, I called this lady who has been threading eye brows for 15 years in Dublin. Like all Indians in Dublin, she was SO rude, like I was asking her to donate her kidney. I was like SCREW you! She was asking for 20 Euros & was apparently booked for the next 7 days.

Then I took my chances and went with my friend to this tanning salon (where she had got hers done,) there was this super sweet polish girl who 'waxed' my eyebrows. It was quite an experience, but at the end viola! I loved the look, I looked human again. I cannot believe what this small thing does to your face. They charged me like 12 euros (the Indian in me immediately converted 12*60=720RUPEES.... Seriously?? I could have gotten a nice facial done in that much) and it was not a bad spend at the end.

I SO miss the parlor girls at Hyderabad :-( India you are awesome! Love you so much... Miss you so much...

World (or rather India, so to speak), Say Hello to my Nexus Babe...

As one of my colleague rightly pointed out, "When you really want something to happen, the whole universe conspires so that your wish comes true" - Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist.

SHE IS FINALLY HERE! I am the proud and one of the few thousand licensed & 'legally' imported Nexus Ones. Yay! Ain't she super awesome... Ok, before you ask the reason for the 'She' & not 'He,' am I being sexist here, well honestly, nope. I just heard myself say it aloud a couple of times with a he & a she and found that the 'She' (as always) sounds much better. So for all practically purposes 'she' it is :-P Got loads to tell you about her. Ok and yea, I am not going let my Google loyalties get in the the way, I am going to try & be a true critic. I will include the 'But,' element in my coming posts too :-P For now here is her pic, sit back & watch. While I have fun :-P
