The over-40 woman’s kryponite

14 Aug

Hot flashes? Nope. Spreading waistline? Nope. Inability to remember why you left a room? Not even close. What is it?

The magnifying mirror.

This is a double edged sword. We now need reading glasses, which means we need a magnifying mirror to pluck our eyebrows. But flip that mirror over to the magnifying side, and YIKES!

Ever wonder why do many over-40 women’s eyebrows look like this?

Because it’s better than looking in that magnifying mirror. Especially if it’s a LIGHTED magnifying mirror.

So cut us some slack. We can’t see ourselves without our glasses anyway.

    Maybe over-40 women no longer give a damn what other people think of their looks.

      Haha, that’s a possibility too! My 20 year old daughter just didn’t understand this post. I told her I was going to give her a copy of it, and a lighted magnifying mirror, for her 40th birthday. :o)
