Lashes for days (+ how to put on false lashes)

I love false lashes.  They are something that help my small eyes really stand out and I appreciate whoever invented them!  I know a lot of people are afraid of them or say they are time consuming but I've been wearing false lashes since my make up artist friend introduced them to me about 10 years ago! For me to put on false lashes takes about as long as applying mascara.  The biggest tip I can give you is practice, practice, practice!  You will learn the best way to apply to your eye and then it will become second nature to you.  If you are interested I will have my tips below on applying them and helping them stay on.

Joi, the owner of Lash Closet recently reached out to see if I'd like to try out some lashes from her store and she seriously spoiled me!  I love everything that she sent.  For everyday I go for the more subtle lashes - the Ardell 110 seen below - are perfect for the everyday lash.  In the past few years I've mastered the invididual eyelashes and I often will use 3 individual lash clusters at the outer edges of my eyes and it really makes quite a difference.  Layer mascara over your real and false lashes and nobody can tell the difference.

In my office, my essentials are always my macbook pro (I use this hard case to protect it) and notebook/notepads.  I have a bad obsession with cute stationary.  I can't help but want it all!

2015 Agendas: 4 Chic (and Highly Recommended) Day Planners

I'm a total digital girl, I have now converted to reading my books and magazines all on my iPad and I track all my events on my Google Calendar.  But there is something about smaller tasks and call/meetings throughout the day that I won't remember unless I write them down.  I haven't used a day planner since I was in college but decided that I needed one to keep me organized.
