My Latest Obsession

My lashes are incredibly stubborn-so much so that some mascaras are surplus to requirement. 

This mascara is seriously the best-you twist the wand to change the shape (a longer brush=lengthy lashes and the shorter thicker option= volumized lashes).

Here are my lashes before I applied the mascara

And here they are after 

It may not look huge, but trust me I feel a HUGE difference. So it might be a little pricey, but I think it’s totally worth it.

Monthly recap

Well… this month was interesting. The day before father’s day dad had an emergency (he’s okay!) then on Father’s Day we had a few people over. 

I finished ‘Nice is Just a Place in France‘ by The Betches and ‘The Swans of 5th Avenue‘ by Melanie Benjamin now I’m reading ‘The Perfect Girl‘ by Gilly Macmillan.

Netflix binges: One- we watched season 2 of Poldark over a weekend. If I talk about this more I’ll no doubt spill some spoilers.


Mom’s birthday was on the 9th, dad’s was in May so now it’s my turn! Although it’s at the very end of the month (practically August). Our annual trip to CA is planned and scheduled so stay tuned for that recap!
