Never Underestimate The Power Of The Eyebrow.


So I took my eyebrows to be tortured, I had them threaded, I would normally have them waxed, as I like my torture over and done with as quickly as possible, but I find waxing doesn’t give me a good shape, so a friend recommended threading. The photos I took the other day made me realise how much they badly needed doing.

I was a little naive in the sense of what this was actually going to involve. Sure I watched a YouTube video, to give me an idea, but it didn’t actually prepare me for the searing pain, that was


going to ensue! It was slightly my own fault,  as my eyebrows were bushier than the rainforest lol. Even the lady who threaded my eyebrows kinda nervously laughed, when I volunteered the information that I hadn’t had them done in about…oh umm lets see, 2 years. ‘I will do my best’, she said. Well as you can see from the photo >>>> She did a great job, although I did look like someone had burned my eyebrow skin for a while LOL. Hunky kept laughing at me.

MY GOD it hurt like a bastard, which each run of the thread, it took all my will power to not jump out of the chair. I grit my teeth until my jaw ached, and rammed my feet against the wall, to stop myself jumping every time she ran at it. However despite all that, it didn’t hurt as much as plucking, and she told me that of I had it regularly done every 3 weeks that it wouldn’t hurt as much. Actually considering I have an inflamed central nervous system (which means I feel pain far more), that I hadn’t reacted any differently to anyone else she had tortured…I mean threaded.

All in all, despite the pain, I thought the result was better than having them waxed, and much less painful than having them plucked 🙂

About silvermaneuk

Known as Nicky Turner-Sterling at school, and married and became Field. Got divorced, now Turner-Sterling again. Married to Kristopher and kept my maiden name. Nicknames are Betty, Knickers or Nicky. I am a mom to 3 great kids. I have been diagnosed with CFS/ME & Fbromyalgia and I also have neurological problems. I am registered disabled. So I have good days and bad days. Sometimes really bad days, where I cant get out of bed. But I try not to let it hold me back, I have to work with my limitations, but after a long period of being bedridden I finally got back to working albeit part time. I seem to be constantly on a diet lol. I love photography, I love my computers, and often create digital art on it. I love to read, and I love to listen to music, passionate about photography. I love to travel and look at beautiful places.I love to mooch around shops (especially the £1 shop lol) and stuff. I love to bake and cook. Love my animals, have 4 small dogs,4 cats and 1, 8 year old pony. Spirit is my best friend, I trained him, so I could ride him for physio therapy, and trained him so I could ride with as low impact as possible. Riding helps my pelvis and hips. When I dont ride it affects my gait, and I can hardly walk, so it is an excellent form of physio therapy for me. It can also make me flare badly, so I have to get the balance right. He's bitless, barefoot and treeless, he really looks after me, and makes it possible for me to have my dream, and he gave me hope again. If my physio hadn't encouraged to to try horse riding for therapy, I probably would still be bedridden. A disabled rider can do it, with the right tools! and pace pace pace! I can talk the hind leg of a donkey and snore for England. I get bored very quickly, which means I tend to flit from one thing to another, or do more than one thing at once lol.
