Eyelash Extensions

Feels good to be back in Boston. Flew home for the weekend to celebrate Thanksgiving and to see all my friends and family. But of course, what is a weekend trip without shopping? Did my usual drop by at Saks Fifth Avenue on Friday morning. If you're from Boston, you'll notice that the store is doing some heavy renovations. Speaking of renovations, the Bloomingdales in Chesnut hill opened at its new location a month ago and it's ginormous! It's worth stopping by if you haven't seen it yet.

Anyhow, after months of wanting eyelash extensions (& thanks to a tip from my cousin California Style), I got them done! I have to say, I'm impressed with what a difference it makes. I love how it opens your eyes! It took about an hour for the initial application and it's completely painless. Once they're applied, you have to be careful not to rub or use oil-based products (oil loosens the adhesive causing your lashes to come off). It's fun to try and now I can put my eyelash curler and mascara to rest. For maintenance, you just need to make monthly visits for refills. After a few months of wear, it's recommended that you take off your lashes (with baby oil - don't pull!) to let them breathe. It's like acrylic nails. Every now again, it's only healthy to go natural.

For more information, read this article in Vogue's May issue on Eyelash Extensions.

If you are adamant against getting false lashes, there are other options - Jan Marini's age intervention eyelash is the next big thing in eyelash technology. It's a treatment that helps to thicken and lengthen your real lashes.

But whatever you decide, I hope that you give it a try!
