The Lockdown Eyebrow

Hello everyone! Are you enjoying my lockdown posts? Today for the letter E, I have circled in on “eyebrows” or more specifically, the lockdown trend of bushier brows that dominated our beauty feeds all year.  Grooming at home took on a whole new meaning with salons going out of reach during the lockdown. And “threading eyebrows” – one of the most dominant facial grooming techniques – was just not up everyone’s alley! So women around the world let their brows grow out into their natural shapes and sizes and as a result, eyebrows got a lot more bushier, stronger and…

Hi there, and hope you are having a great week! I am continuing with my lockdown alphabet series posts and this week I am covering the letter B for “Baking” and “Banana Bread”!  So tell me honestly, did you bake banana bread or anything else during the lockdown?

What started with banana bread, cakes, brownies, and other sugary treats quickly transitioned to more serious experiments around garlic bread, pizza and…
