so, in the spirit of the new year, and feeling a little stuck in my ways - i bring you "newbieNEWS". i'm going to try something new - something REALLY new - not like, there's a new cheeseburger at chili's new. this is legit. i want to do things that people have heard of, and maybe tried, but it inst the ordinary-every-day-ho-hum stuff. think: taking a trapeze class at the circus (personal dream - in spite of my infant like upper body strength) or trying the newest fitness craze (laughter yoga, anyone?).
ok, so i'm easing into this a bit - i can't try deep sea diving or wrestle an alligator the first month, ok!? i'm sometimes a wuss. but i am doing something i have ALWAYS wanted to! eyelash extensions! i am so excited to do it (thanks groupon!) and this is a good starting point for me. granted, it isn't dangerous or completely unheard of, but i think it is still rare that people do it, and i thought it would be fun before i head to salt lake for alt summit! (omg,wait. i leave tomorrow morning! hooray!)
|before: no make-up lashes|
when i first laid down to get started, abby said she had to cover my lower lashes so that my new long awesome lashes didn't get glued to them and so my eyes wouldn't be glued shut. cue panic attack. haha she went to put this sticker-type doo-dad over my bottom lashes and i was apparently thrashing about and she had to tell me to calm down at least three times. i told you i had to ease into this whole "new fun stuff" process. anyways. a few deep breaths later and i let her place the sticker over my lashes. it was easy peasy once i realized what she was doing. my brain just heard "eyes glued shut" and went blank haha.
once we got started, it was great! it was very spa-like and it only took an hour and voila! my lashes are so super fun and fancy. full time fancy.
|after: lash extensions. no make-up.|
|i mean, someone take me out. these bad boys are for real!|
