    WTF. How come your eyebrows aren’t puffy? LOL

    :kissie: J

    Laura, they’re supposed to be puffy? I got them waxed so they WOULDN’T be puffy, lolol.

    I think Laura meant the skin… from your hair being ripped out by its roots. LOL Did it once – never again.

    Your eyelashes look pretty! :bat:

    Ohh, well, this is about 2 hours after the fact, but Jen is a genius and one of the best waxers ever. I had a woman once who ripped the skin off my eyebrows (ouch). She applies a toner and then lotion to my face, which cuts down on a lot of that, I think. It’s all in the talent of the stylist.

    What flaws? They look nice.
    I don’t think I could wear them, other than my contacts I’m paranoid about having things on or around my eyes.
    Have a great weekend. :bat:

    Ah, I love getting my brows waxed. And yeah, if you get the right person, they aren’t puffy. I’m way too pale and have sensitive skin, so I’m always pink in that area for at least the rest of the day (in fact, one ex-coworker once thought I had on funky eyeshadow), but that’s just me.

    But love the lashes!

    Wow. Your skin looks that good w/o make-up? I hate you. False eyelashes always make me think of Zsa Zsa Gabor, etc (eek) but those look surprisingly natural and quite attractive. Its the wealthy-Long-Islander-running-a-mundane-errand-between-manicures look! If the cashiers and daycare peeps did notice, it was probably with envy.

    I’d be nervous wearing them because I’d forget and rub my eye or something and they’d be messed up.

    The eyelashes (and the brows) look really great, Angie! You should definitely try them again sometime. I’m thinking with the whole “full makeup” thing they’ll be extra pretty.

    You aren’t wearing makeup? I hate you! Lashes and brows look good. :kickass:

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).

Follow me on Twitter
