I've always had many ideas for stories, and I've started many of them. This summer, I decided to create a blog where I could start stories and give myself permission to never end them. My original idea was to let other writers find my unfinished pages and put their own... Continue reading

I thought I'd try a new series here where I talk about a few of my favorite lash things. Today, it's the Lash View lashes that I buy on Amazon. I like the set shown in the video because it includes 10mm-14mm lashes in two different thicknesses. To create today's... Continue reading

So, the Gaze lashes that took me so long to put on yesterday? They fell right off this morning. So, that means that I got to put on new lashes. I still had two pairs of the Glam Goddess lashes, so I decided to wear those today. The lashes are... Continue reading

Today, I'm wearing these little beauties from Lilac Street: Gaze. Part of living the lash life, for me, is that sometimes, the lashes pop right on, and sometimes, it takes a good 45 minutes and you wind up with glue all over your eyelid and under your eye. And of... Continue reading
