You’ve Got to Bat Your Eyes…Like This

Growing up, I was a total tomboy. I couldn’t tell you exactly when I became girly, but I suspect it was around prom…because the dresses were pretty.

For a girl, I’m pretty low maintenance. I usually wear eye makeup, but I only use foundation on special occasions. Makeup takes time, and I have no patience. Plus, I never really figured out how to use blush correctly.

When I first heard about eyelash extensions, I thought:

Perfect! Now I won’t have to use mascara. Woo-hoo for 3.14 extra minutes of sleep! Sweet!

Extensions normally cost between $150-200. So I cheaped out, and let my nail salon do them for $60. They fell off the next day.

When I saw that a real salon had an eyelash extension special for $50, I tried one more time.

Now if I can just get rid of the nasty red vein....

Now if I can just get rid of the nasty red vein in my eye….

The picture was taken 2 weeks after my appointment…which means some fell out. You can imagine how awesome they looked when I first got them.

Apparently, I have more eyelashes than the average person, so it took almost 3 hours to put on a full set of lashes (because they put them on one-by-one).

As the technician handed me a mirror, she said, “They’ll be even more dramatic if you put mascara on!”

I could see spiders my lashes in the mirror across the room. No mascara needed.

Now I’m used to them, and I love them. But when I first saw them, I was shocked into girly overload…hence this text conversation:

Me: OMG…These eyelashes make me look like a hooker!

Friend: And you’re worth every penny.

 Kudos to the person who guesses what movie the post title is from.

A Zombie for All Seasons

As much as I love Christmas, I love Halloween more. But Christmas offers lots of distractions to help with Halloween withdraw.

  • Cookies
  • Hot chocolate
  • Dipping cookies in hot chocolate
  • Gifts
  • Putting antlers on my cat
  • Catching snow on your tongue
  • Sparkling ornaments (I’m easily distracted by sparklies.)
  • Pretty lights (I’m like a moth to a flame…without the dying part.)

But sometimes all of that just isn’t enough. Sometimes I need something dark (not dark chocolate…well…maybe….). Something sinister. Something that eats brains.

Doesn't everyone have this on their front door?

Why take down Halloween decorations when you can just alter them to fit the next holiday?

I thought about putting the zombie in a diaper to represent the New Year’s baby, but that just seemed too embarrassing…even for a paper zombie cutout.

Next up…Zombie Cupid.
