Next month it will be three years since I decided to go vegan. At first finding vegan goodies was a little tricky, but now there is SO much choice! My husband decided to go vegetarian at the same time and one of the things that I have most often been caught out on is sweets. He has such a sweet tooth so I often grab him a packet of sweets when doing the shopping, only to get home and realise that they contain something like gelatine. Gah!

You'd think with my complexion and dark hair that I'd be blessed with lovely, thick eyebrows, but you'd be wrong! Instead I have sparse brows made up of the tiniest, finest hairs EVER. Which means that combined with the aforementioned complexion my brows are barely visible. So every month I get my eyebrows threaded and each morning I use make-up to fill and define them.

I've been getting my eyebrows threaded at Superdrug for a few years now, after discovering that that was where my friend, who always has perfect eyebrows, got hers done. Recently Superdrug offered to send a voucher for me to try out their instore beauty services and as I already love their threading service I decided to try having my eyebrows tinted as well this time.

To everyone that told me I should put my baby down. To the people that told me that I cuddled him too much. To the ones that said I'm making a rod for my back. To the relatives that said he should sleep on his own. To those that said he would grow up to be clingy. To the friends that said he would never learn to be independent. And that he would never want to leave my side.

You were all wrong.
