Lash Extensions with The Lash Lounge in Houston

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 Process

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.

Little White Romper + 6 Easter Activities for Families in Houston

This week will be a busy one. Not only am I wrapping up the girls’ easter baskets but I am also trying to decide what we will do for Easter Sunday. This is the first time in years, that my husband will be off work and able to spend it with us, so I’m a little out of practice. I think we will change that this year! 😉

If you’re in the Houston area and looking for ways to spend Easter with the family, keep scrolling because I’ve added six activities you can do this weekend, from Egg Hunts to Eats – something for everyone.

I also wanted to share this cute little white romper with you. No, this will not be my Easter outfit, but since Spring is officially here, I am all about Rompers and Dresses. I am also loving denim jackets, because they go with everything! Colorful pom-pom sandals are also my things lately. I am linking similar items below for you to shop. If you’re wondering about the coffee in hand… Well that’s me trying to energize for all the things I have to do this week. 🙂

Easy Chicken Nachos

In all honesty, I think my daughter is more Mexican than Panamanian… At least when it comes to food. Otherwise, she loves Panama as if she was born and had lived there. I guess it’s just that magical of a place – yes, I’m totally trying to persuade you to plan a trip there and then come back to tell me all about it. 😉

Back to food. She loves tacos and every Tuesday says, “Mami, it’s Taco Tuesday!” I love tacos too but I don’t want to eat them on a weekly basis… Instead of Tacos, I offered to make nachos – my husband’s idea – and she gladly accepted. Not to say that she runs things around here… But sometimes she wins, especially when I don’t have dinner pre-planned.

I came up with some delicious and super easy chicken nachos, using ingredients that I mostly had. On the Border Monterey Jack Queso, Tostitos hint of lime chips, Two chicken breasts, adobo, corn, and jalapeños.

Distressed High Waisted Shorts & Our Galveston Beach Adventure

Houston = Home! For six years now and I love it here! Oh the city life – though I really live in the suburbs. 😉 But it’s nice to have a major city close by, and even better to have a beach near by. I will admit that while Galveston Beach is not the most sought after beach location and its water may not be crystal clear. I absolutely love taking a trip our there. Just breathing in that ocean air brings back so many good memories.
