A few things I'm very grateful for but also wish I didn't need! After family and health, the Imigran tablets for my migraines are probably next on the list. I know it's boring to bang on about them but when you suffer with migraines, they do affect everything you do. I still remember the very first time I took one of these, in Dubai. We had just moved there and got private health care. It was like rising from the grave and seeing a day you never thought you'd see - an amazing experience. I'm grateful for every day I get to claim back whenever I take these. However, I still hold a grudge against my previous doctor for not telling me about them and letting me suffer when I had two small children to look after!
The foundation is not such a big deal but I'm grateful for anything that makes me look half decent! Again, it's one of those items that keeps getting updated and changed and I have yet to find one to replace the Lancome one I preferred, years ago. It seemed to suit in summer and winter whereas now I'm like a chemist, trying to mix different concoctions to suit as the seasons change and tan fades.
Thankfully, I have no problem with tweezers now Tweezerman tweezers have been invented! Best thing since sliced bread and they have been widely copied too. I used to hang on to one pair for dear life, like my old styling brush, as good tweezers were impossible to find. In the seventies I had those pencil thin eyebrows that were in fashion. They came back in during the nineties in a slightly thicker, more groomed version and my eyebrows have never recovered since. So as I can't go natural, that's it, I'm destined to pluck!
