LiLash Update!

I apologize to anyone who was anxiously awaiting the growth of my eyelashes. I have been going non stop between work and regular life and simply could not find the time to post my pictures.

I still can't decide what is the best way to track my lash growth (or lack of?)... with mascara, or without? So, I kind of did both. I feel like right now the progress is minimal, but I think there is a small change. And I mainly notice it just when I am putting on my mascara.

Still, I haven't talked to anyone who didn't have extreme success with this product, so I am anxious to see the upcoming results.

L-R July 7th (approx one week in) and July 18th (approx two weeks in)

L-R July 18th (with mascara) and July 22nd (with mascara)
So... there you have it. I don't know! I think there is a tiny bit of difference in length. So far, no negative side effects that I can think of. Sometimes it burns a little if I get carried away when I am putting in on, but other than that, no issues!

It will be interesting to see if there are any noticeable changes in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!

I am really excited about my most recent purchase!

As in EXTREMELY excited. I have been wanting to do a little mini series on some sort of eyelash enhancer for quite some time now, and I just wasn't sure which one to purchase...also wasn't sure if it would be worth the money.

So, yesterday I had a facial with Casey at Sweet Jane Salon (always fantastic...Casey always makes my skin feel brand new!) and noticed she had a LiLash display. I have previously looked at this product at Beauty First and so I asked Casey about it. She said the product was actually discontinued and they had ONE BOX left in the salon.

The pressure was on! I have been debating this purchase for close to six months now...which is actually VERY unlike me. I typically decide I want/need something, and then purchase it an hour later. This goes for most decisions in my life. So anyways, Casey filled me in on the product and that she, herself, had experienced fantastic results with LiLash.
For those of you who are unfamiliar, LiLash is created by Cosmetic Pros and is an eyelash serum that enhances the natural beauty of eyelashes by fortifying and conditioning the lash follicle. 

As I think most of you have already guessed, I purchased LiLash and will be updating you weekly (hopefully) on the progress! 

Here are some pictures (post facial) before I started Day 1 of LiLash! Sorry for the creepy up-close killer eye pictures. There is a little mascara still on my eyes, but for the most part that is what my eyelashes look like naturally. Throughout these weeks, I will post pictures with and without makeup to show results! 

Stay Tuned!

Current Food Obsessions: Cookie Butter

NOTE: This is not a healthy food obsession. Maybe in moderation, but if you have had this stuff... I am not sure that moderation and Cookie Butter go in the same sentence.

If you love gingersnaps, you will love Cookie Butter. If you don't love them, you may still love this. In fact, it would be weird if you didn't.

You can get Cookie Butter at Trader Joe's. It is amazing. Personally, I spread it on graham crackers. Honestly though, I would eat it plain out of the jar. But that may be taking things too far.

Go buy this. You will probably be mad at me later when your pants don't fit, but it will be worth it.
