I'm not sure what overcame me, b' />

Inspired by “Nothing But Bonfires: Bad Decision Tuesday”

Anyone ever over-plucked their eyebrows?

You’re not alone. I did too.

I’m not sure what overcame me, but I just thought it would look SO awesome on me.

I’ll tell you right now, it didn’t.

About a year later (yeah, it took me that long..why didn’t anyone say anything??) I realized my poor choice and decided to grow those babies back. So I tried for a good 3 months or so until I realized I looked so overgrown and cavewomanish with little patches of eyebrows here and there that I ended up just plucking them all out again. This has gone on for the last 18 months or so.

So now about 3 months ago I decided I would HOLD STRONG! I WILL GROW THESE SUCKERS BACK!

I’m in that sort of “Overgrown” “Lady, you really should maybe clean up all those ugly strays” type of stage. But I don’t care, cause I’m holding out until my eyebrows are fully back in business. Then I think I’ll go to a professional and let her take care of the shape and all that.

And then I will never do such a bad thing again. Has anyone else done anything dumb lately?



  1. i LOVE bad decision tuesday. i have SO many pictures of me that really think the internet needs to see. it’s just not fair to keep them all to myself, LOL! 🙂

    totally went through the over-plucked eyebrows phase… glad that’s over!

    first thing that comes to mind is a pair of jeans that i wore EVERYDAY when joe and i first got married. i seriously thought they looked so good on me, but now every time i see pictures of them i cringe. horrible! they didn’t have pockets on the butt, and i realized that jeans are SUPPOSED to have pockets on the butt. mine are at least! 🙂

    My eyebrows have been overplucked for like 2 years! But I hate having them overgrown and pluck them all the time. I reallllly need to grow them out and start over but my willpower isn’t that strong!! You inspire me, Merrick. If you can do it, maybe I can too!

    Some people think shaving my eyebrows entirely off at age 10 was a bad choice. My mom, in particular.

    But it was worth it to see my brother without eyebrows (he told me he’d shave his if I shaved mine and I just went at it before he could stop me. What a good man for following through on his promise). Talk about funny!

    Right before London, I plucked a gap right into my left eyebrow. Charming.

    You are so funny. Why didn’t you tell me you were in such turmoil? I can help you out there. If it makes you feel better I haven’t noticed they were crazy.
