Perhaps you want to see the results when Starflyte and I finally get together.
She has offered to let me see her lip results.
I've had eyebrows and eyeliner done and I have a touch-up appointment in January.
It is my intention to get lips done in early 2019.
I don't think Starflyte would mind me telling you that she had eyeliner and lips done.
So we can let you see the whole shebang in Stages 1, 2 and 3.

Love my eyebrows, created an almost instant lift. Get lots of compliments. No hurry to do lids or lips but would love to see others results. The lips, I have heard, can develop some scar tissue, plus with the wrinkles do not want to emphasis, just my opinion which really does not amount to much. Eyelids.....maybe down the road. But the eyebrows, oh ya, would recommend Kim Forsberg any day of the week, she is particular.

Bare, I stopped taking .81mg aspirin 5 days before. Also, certain vitamins. I doubt that anyone on thinners would be able to have the permanent make-up.

Would be more than happy to meet. Just say when and where.

Sorry, I thought you stopped taking aspirin three months before, my bad.
Pat, I would love to see your results after Christmas or sometime in early January.
I am definitely going back for a touch-up appointment in January for my eyebrows and eyeliner.
I really need to decide whether to have my lips done.
Do you think having your lips done emphasized the wrinkles?

Default GYN recommendation

Asking for my friend who is not on the forum: has anyone used James Flaherty, GYN, and did you like or not?
(I realize this is not as interesting as tattooing your eyelids...)

"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" Season 2 is on Amazon Prime now.

I am liking it even better than Season 1. (The clothes (and the cars) are gorgeous, too.) It is set in the late 1950s.

The family goes to the Catskills and Susie (Alex Borstein) manages to go along, incognito. (I had said to someone recently that I thought Alex Borstein should get an award for her role. I found out she already did.)

I tried Rosy-Tone moisturizer for the first time recently.
I couldn't resist the advertising by Helen Mirren.

I'll watch Season 2; thanks for the recommendation.

I know that sometimes I sound like the Queen of Binge-Watching. I try to tell myself, I am not really the queen. I am just efficient with my television time.

Anyway, just had to let you know that Grace and Frankie, Season 5, will be on January 18.

While you are waiting: You might like The Kominsky Method, also on Netflix. This one has Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin as two friends aging together. It is kind of like Grace and Frankie in that it is about some of the issues of growing older -- but from the point of view of men.

(Ann Margret is in it. She is 77. Long time since Bye Bye Birdie.

I just started watching Grace and Frankie again.
I realized there were some episodes I missed, like all of Season One.
I tried watching The Kominsky Method; perhaps I just got a boring episode.
Ann Margret is 77? Guess celebrities grow old also.
I haven't watched Mrs. Maisel yet, but Season two is on my list.

I didn't realize that Netflix had movies made for Netflix.
I watched a Jennifer Anniston movie made for Netflix where she is thin and won beauty pageants.
She has a daughter that is buxom, not a bad movie if you're an Anniston fan.

I have already seen all of Season One. Then I spent all of last weekend binging on Season two! Really enjoyed it. I have decided that binging is my preferred watching style.

I also binged Homecoming with Julia Roberts. It was good but of the two I prefer Mrs. Maisel.

I think that's a new picture of you? It's cute, you look very young!

Homecoming is available? On Netflix or Amazon Prime? I'm a Julia Roberts fan.

Amazon Prime.

My picture? Thanks but I don't think it is entirely representative of what I really look like. As I said on another thread, a few more pounds and perhaps some botox and then I will take a current picture so that I won't be accused of catfishing.

I nominate Vanity Fair from Amazon Prime for the best binge since Downton Abbey.

Vanity Fair is set in the early 1800s. (again, the clothes are a bonus) William Thackeray wrote Vanity Fair in the mid-1800s, at first as a serial published by Punch in 20 monthly installments before being published as a book. (How did they ever get along without the opportunity to binge on a story.)

Thackeray subtitled his book A Novel Without A Hero.

It was written as a satire on English society with its distinct class lines -- when those of higher rank were known for their obsession with knowing one's place and staying in it. And those who were left out could be obsessed with getting out by moving up, whatever it took.

The story centers around Becky Sharp who is determined to rise above her class. She has the brains and the beauty to get a lot of things done. Her machinations are memorable.

I think many of you will consider Vanity Fair to be binge-worthy. (I am not finished with it yet, up to the 3rd episode and trying hard to wait until tonight to turn on the television. But I know I can recommend it without hesitation.)
