If you’ve ever wondered how to get the perfect shape for your eyebrows, check out this video from Monique Powers. In it, she shows you how to shape your own eyebrows without spending a ton of money at a salon.
I love that she uses something as simple as a pencil to do the measurements of where the eyebrow should begin, where the arch should be and where the brow should end. She makes it look so easy!
I just learned that “at traditional Persian weddings, guests may grow alarmed when the bride twice doesn’t answer when asked if she will marry the bridegroom. (He doesn’t get the yes until he presents a gift, often of coins or jewelry.)” Thank you New York Times! The Times’ recent article “Different Rules for Different Cultures: Be Prepared” goes over a few of the cultural differences that might flummox wedding guests. What should you wear to an Indian wedding or Orthodox Jewish one? What kind of dancing is permissible at a Muslim wedding?
If you’ve witnessed cross-cultural confusion or have any advice for guests who might not be familiar with your wedding traditions and etiquette, please help the rest of us out by sharing your advice. We really don’t want to embarrass ourselves.
