Sincerely Fro Me to You: Homecoming

It was Homecoming in the 80's. The time when a lighter was actually part of your beauty regiment. For those of you that didn't take part in this ritual, one would take their eyeliner and hold it in the flame of the lighter. Once it was nice and gooey, you would smear this liquid mess all over your eyes. Cause nothing is sexier than raccoon eyes. Never mind the danger of having a open flame near that much hairspray.

I had perms like that too! Luckily my mom lost most of the pics of me when I moved out. hehe

Oh good lord!
I forgot about the lighter/eye-liner thing!

Yes. I admit it. I did it....but my end results were not nearly as good as yours!!!

Thanks for coming to the FRO party today. Remember to leave your keys with Mr. Linky if you are planning to drink from the punch bowl. (Mr. Linky spiked it)

I don't remember dong that with my eyeliner, but the hairspray was most definitely used. :)

You look VERY fashionable for the 80's...I had no idea about using a lighter with eyeliner!

I'm not quite sure what to say. Kind of explains your love for all things Brett Michaels and Poison (isn't that the concert you are going to)? I totally agree with Norse, Jessica and Boden on the Debbie Gibson call.

Can't wait for Disney (although by the time you read this, we will probably already have gone).
