So, everywhere I go, women have these spidery eyelashes that look amazing. I have wanted longer lashes for a long time…but I was scared to try it. Until now, my wonderful husband gave me eyelashes for Christmas.
Here is my experience:
It took 2 hours
It was relaxing for the 1st hour and then it made me antsy because my eyes were closed.
It did not hurt except once when it felt a bit poky on the edge of my eye–and the adhesive can burn for a few seconds.
It costs about $100 and lasts about 3 weeks at which time you need a refill
Refill costs about 30-50 dollars
The results: I love them! They feel like my own lashes and they look like my own but longer. I feel glamorous and confident enough not to want to put on a scrap of other makeup. Also, they seem to make my husband do things for me when I bat my eyelashes at him.
I went to South Africa to visit my daughter (she was completing her study abroad) in Capetown. We felt this was a wonderful excuse to visit Johannesburg, the Kruger, Durban, and Maputo— “Gilmore Girl” style—lots of spontaneity, gallons of coffee and little bit of charm and wit.
Capetown is a gorgeous place that has an electricity that I have never felt anywhere else that I have traveled. The people are amazingly friendly (when you say thank you…their reply is always “Pleasure”) and the food is wonderful!
Koeksister and coffee–a donut-like pastry that is uniquely South African and so delicious.
