What I Love About Me

Marie Claire's "What I Love About Me" section is refreshing. Each issue the magazine spotlights a city and features local real women showing off their signature styles and sharing tidbits about what makes them feel beautiful.

The November Marie Claire focuses on San Francisco. The San Fran locals' answers to "What I Love About Me" range from "my mysterious eyes" to "my friendliness." One woman feels great about her ability to cut her own bangs. Another has "a naturally pouty mouth that looks good in every shade of lipstick." My favorite out of all the SF ladies' prized features are Krystal Bick's "dark, bold brows." Bick and I are basically soul sisters. I often get complimented on my brows. They're naturally thick and can get pretty crazy if I don't groom them, but alas, I do! I see brow specialist Maral Balian every few months and I do my best to upkeep in-between appointments. Thanks to Balian, I look presentable even without makeup. Oftentimes women comment on my brows in exercise classes. I suppose this is because most women bare their faces sans cosmetics during workouts, so these kind eyebrow admirers know mine are the real deal. In fact, my favorite barre teacher remembers me as "Amy with the great eyebrows." I love it. 


P.S. A huge thank you to my friend Alex, restauranteur and native New Yorker, for the Maral Balian introduction.

P.P.P.S. Do you, too, find that beauticians make the best spiritual advisors?
