Fear the Falsie

falsie

I have always had a fear of false eyelashes. I have tried to use them in the past to no avail. Eventually, I gave up. I told myself that I would be better off with out them! I didn’t really start thinking about them again until I started this blog. I knew for the betterment of some of my photos, falsies were a must.

Todd and I went to Mitsuwa, a japanese market, for lunch yesterday (yum udon!). While we were on our way out, something caught my eye in their Shisheido counter. A whole rack of Callas brand false eyelashes, and they were only $2/pair. “Now’s my chance,” I thought to myself. I knew I had a little over $2 jingling in my purse. They were calling my name! I dragged Todd to the stand and started looking at all of my choices. I knew that I wanted to ease into them with a natural looking pair. There they were, #507. I took them off the rack gently, staring at them. Wow, they are made from real human hair! I couldn’t pass them up.

After we left Mitsuwa, we had to head over to the Mall too! The one by our home has a Target in it, and I needed to pick up some duo eyelash adhesive. I spent 3X the price of the lashes on glue, “ain’t” that a shame? Oh well, it is an investment! We do have a Target closer to home than the mall, but I take any excuse I can to go window shopping!

Todd and I did go into Sur La Table though, (for those of you who don’t know, baking/cooking is another passion of mine!) and Todd made some fabulous purchases. He invested in an Aeropress (we LOVE coffee!!), and two special items just for me. I will only tell you one item today because I have a surprise related to the other item that I will be posting soon… 🙂 Anyway, Todd bought me an electric baking scale that was 40% off!! A BAKING SCALE YOU GUYS!! I can now make macarons along with many other things that need precise measurements! It will also help me price out some recipes…Thank you Todd!

BACK TO THE FALSE EYELASHES! I decided to hold off on the falsies until the next day. I was nervous, they were mocking me. I mustered up the courage and went for it. It took longer than I would care to admit to get them on properly, but I AM IN LOVE!! I never thought I would wear false eyelashes out in public, but I might now! They are just so beautiful. The pair that I chose do not overwhelm my hooded eyes!

I can actually say that I am excited to purchase some crazy looking ones for future posts. Stay tuned!
