Eylure Lash Collection

I love a good set of eyelashes. But I have to be honest,  I haven’t always been a fan of strip lashes.They were once reseverved for dramatic makeup looks, which isn’t really me. These days there are plenty of every-day type lashes that are comfortable to wear and don’t peel mid way through your day. Best of all, no one can tell. Well unless you want them to.

Eylure lashes are a favourite of mine. The main reason for this is quality but price is a close second. If you look after them you can wear them again and again. I have been trying out their new collection over the past few months. Continue Reading


Morning Waffle…(Eyelashes, Books, Breaking Dawn)

It has been a while since my last morning waffle. I felt like a chat this morning…

1. Breaking Dawn

… OMG! (That may be the first time in my life that I have ever used those three letters in succession. It was necessary). If you’re a regular reading than you know I love the Twilight books. I knew I would like Breaking Dawn but I wasn’t anticipating loving it. I didn’t even touch my popcorn! That’s saying something :) I’m going to go see it again. Apparently I left the cinema before seeing a deleted scene?



2. Eyelashes

On a completely random note… I saw the most gorgeous eyelashes on GlitterGeek’s blog, I must have them.

They’re $29 though! Reduced from $59? That’s a lot of dough for lashes. I can’t stop looking at them though. What do you think?


3. Books…

I bought The Radleys and The Historian from The Book Depository last month. I had read great reviews about both. I’m half way through The Radleys and I’m struggling to keep going. It’s a little too raw for me – I’m a fan of make-believe :) I read as a form of escapism, I like nothing more than getting lost in another world or a characters life. I think this is why I like fantasy and sci-fi so much. Anyway, The Radleys is very well written but it’s a bit too much like real life for me… vampires aside :)

I’m not sure if I mentioned A History of Witches before. In case I neglected to share it with you – it’s fabulous! I finished it and almost started reading it right away. Not for those who fancy a bit of realism but for those who share my love of the Urban Fantasy genre I highly recommend.

How to Video: Apply False Eyelashes (strips)

A false eyelash application video has been requested so many times so I decided it was high time to get it done. I managed to rope my sister into being my model. This demo is also reviews the e.l.f false lash strips

The elf lashes are cheap (from their website). I like the lashes, love the plastic applicator thingy but hate the glue. You would need to buy a better quality glue as it’s not strong enough to hold these stiff lashes.

I hope this was helpful.
