Lash extensions! This is something that had been on my mind for quite some time. I’m not really sure what kept me from doing it. But I’ll admit that I was a bit on the fence about it. After getting the opportunity to get my lash extension with The Lash lounge in Memorial Green, all I could think was, “why did it took me so long to do this?”
From the moment I walked in, my experience was great! The staff was welcoming, the lobby was clean and inviting. They walked me through the process they answer my questions and even offered some information upfront.
The last tech that would take care of me walked over and introduced herself. She then walked me over to the station where I would be sit through the extension process. She asked me a few questions to better understand what were my expectations for this experience. While, I had the option to take a nap, Rola was so great that we chatted the entire time instead.
The entire process took three hours, and this was just because it was my first time. I was advised that fill-ins would need to be done every 2 to 3 weeks, and on those visits I would only spend about an hour at the salon. I was sent home with brushes for my lashes, care instructions and a lash sealer that I bought as it would help maintain my lashes as intact as possible – and let me tell you that I swear by it.
Before & After
I love the volume and length my lashes got from doing the lash extension. While I naturally have lots of lashes, I lack length. Getting the extensions, definitely made a big difference.
It has already been two weeks and my lashes still look great. I will be due for a fill-ins soon and will make sure to share the experience with you on Instagram. 😉
If you’re a Houston Babe and you’re thinking about getting lash extension or any other lash service, make sure to visit The Lash Lounge – you will not be disappointed.

It’s no secret that I straighten my hair. I do it, not because I don’t love my curls, but because it is easier. Believe or not it is easier for me to deal with my hair straight, than to deal with my curls. And it probably has a lot to do with the fact that I haven’t found a product that my curls love! My straight hair, however, is loving my new hair tools by Anjou!
I have to admit that after turning thirty, I have become more conscious about my skin and I’m frequently trying to find ways to better care for it. It can be a tough to find the right products for women with more melanin like myself. Having found Avya, a line that was “designed to indulge all skin tones,” per the Huff Post has made an impact on my skincare routine with the use of only two products and in a short period of time.
I have been using the Anti-aging Power Serum and the Eye Bright Cream – for the last 7 days and I already love how my skin has started feel in such a short period of time.
Eye Bright Cream
My eyes have always been an area of concern, as I feel that there is a large amount of pigmentation around them. I have religiously used the Eye Bright Cream two times each day per instructions and with each use my eyes feel energized. Read More
Volume! So my hair has lots of it when it’s curly… But when I straighten it, not so much! When I heard about Rootie the Rootlifter by Voloom, I was intrigued. And when I got the chance to try it, I did a little happy dance. 🙂 I mean a solution to the lack of volume in my hair? Yes, please!
So, what’s Rootie? It’s a volumizing iron! It gives hair an instant and long lasting volume. It’s the perfect tool to add a volume to hair that is otherwise flat. Especially, when you have to skip the shampoo & need to revive those luscious locks. 😉 I’m leaving you the link to Voloom here for you to check it out and order it – this would make a great christmas gift. 😉
I have to admit that I didn’t have much of a skincare routine in place prior to trying out Saranghae. I supposed I had gotten used to trying a combination of products, as needed. But the fact that one line offers an entire system seemed appealing. Especially, since it is only a four step routine. The sheet mask is optional and not required every night – so I save it for nights when I need some pampering.
You’re curious now! And wonder what is Saranghae? It’s a Korean 5 Step Anti-Aging Routine comprised of
Happy Friday!! What do you have planned for the weekend? Hopefully it’s something fun. 😉 Before the week comes to an end, I wanted to share another Friday Favorite with you. This week, we’re talking nails.
I’ll let you in on a little secret, I’m not like most women who get regular mani and pedis. One reason is that as a mom, my manicures hardly ever last. Another reason is that the girls and I truly enjoy painting our nails together at home.
This means that while I may not use color, I still use clear polish. I have been using several cheap brands which didn’t offer much than a clear coat. That was until I came across Perfect Formula’s Pink Gel Coat. I have been using it for about a month now and I have to say that I am very happy and it’s amazing on my nails.
