LASH EXTENSIONS


Alright, I'm going to let you in on a little beauty secret because it has literally changed my life. I've always had barely-there lashes which has been quite frustrating. I hate the tedious task of applying false eyelashes and mascara can only go so far without clumping and looking like tarantula legs. Now this is where my girl Arianna Montazem comes into play.

I met Arianna a few months ago and her work spoke for itself. A previous experience left me a bit reluctant, but I was excited to give eyelash extensions another try. First of all, Arianna makes house calls - first class service all the way! I enjoy the comfort and convenience of laying in my own bed, taking a quick nap while she makes me pretty. Arianna uses synthetic silk lashes instead of mink lashes because they don't lose their curl when wet and are animal cruelty-free. Each lash is individually applied with a soft touch using Novalash glue. A full set is $200 and lasts up to 6 weeks and fills are applied every 3-4 weeks after that.

In all honesty, I don't think I can live without these now. It makes my morning makeup routine quick and easy, all while looking natural. On most days, I head out the door without any makeup because an amazing set of lashes is all a gal really needs. Hey... I woke up like this - literally!

Definitely check out Arianna's Instagram for more photos and contact info.

SNAKE AND SKIN


A few of my favorite gals and I skipped town for Labor Day weekend and ended up in Palm Springs. We escaped the LA heat for even more heat - 120 degrees to be exact, so being poolside with cold drinks was the only way to go. I now have permanent laugh lines on my face from the memorable weekend.

BRUNCH LOVE


This tee says it all. Breakfast during the week consists of a banana or oatmeal, and some sort of caffeinated to-go latte. It's not the most stimulating of meals so I live for weekend brunch dates and go all out. This past weekend was no different. A few girlfriends and I had a brunch potluck with the most epic spread of delicious bites (Instagram). It's only Monday and I'm already counting down to the weekend! xo

DENIM DAYS


The colder the weather, the more prominent denim becomes in my wardrobe and really, it takes over my life and overflows my closet. I think there's nothing more sexy (for both guys and gals) than a great fitting pair of jeans. This pair in particular from YMI's WannaBettaButt collection hugs me all the right places and allows me to conquer a long time with ease. Plus, the rips and tears makes them all the more special. Cheers to another pair of amazing jeans to add to the collection! xo
