Summer Fashion: New FlutterHabit Lashes: Weightless 3

Since I started wearing DIY lash extensions, there's been an explosion of lashes onto the market.  The most well-known lash company is probably Lashify, and they do have a great product, however, it is pricier than many other options that I think are just as good.  

Lilac Street Versus FlutterHabit 

Two of my favorite other companies for lashes are Lilac Street and FlutterHabit.  Lilac Street has more options and they are all on a nice, lightweight band.  The price is as low as $4 per pair.  FlutterHabit only has a few styles ($5-$6 a pair), and until recently, I couldn't sleep in their lashes because of the heavy weight.  The one drawback for FH for me is that you do have to prep the lashes before wearing them.  Lilac Street offers 10 lash pieces (all the same size) in a package, and FH sells pre-made maps with lashes of different sizes. 

Weightless #3 

The new FH lash is called weightless #3, and I really like it. Apart from the lash prep, I love the curl, wispiness, length, lash map, and weight of these lashes and am already considering ordering them again so that I have an extra box on hand in case they sell out or decide to make them a limited time option.  

Because my eyes are smaller, I only need to use 3/4 of the lash segments that make up the map, which means that I'll be able to get an extra set with the leftovers as long as I do some creative trimming.  The pre-made lash map is a cat's eye, which means the segment on the end is the longest.  

In this photo, I've removed the lashes and worn them a second day.  I unfortunately put them on the "wrong" eyes, but I think they still look good. 

Amazon Lashes 

There are also many styles of affordable lash segments on Amazon.  I suggest that you watch Lash with Tash to see all of the beautiful options and try a few for yourself.  Many of them have lightweight bands and a variety of styles and lengths so you can play around and create whatever look you'd like.  One favorite for me was the fluffy Wonsis brand.  

Lash Length 

Although all the lash brands "promise" that you can wear their lashes for 5-7 days, my skin is just oily enough that I can usually wear them 1-2 days at most.  I'll clean and reapply the more expensive lashes but just toss the more affordable ones and start off fresh each day.

Fall Fashion: I Found Aurora's Dress on Amazon

I posted earlier this fall about our idea to be Aurora Teagarden and Nick Miller for Halloween.  We've watched a lot of the AT movies to decide on our outfits, and we finally decided to be Aurora and Nick from Heist and Seek .  It's one of the movies where they are dressed up (the other one is Reunited and It Feels So Deadly .) In going down the AT rabbit hole, I found the designer of her dresses in both of these movies, a company called Dress the Population.  And, I also found the exact dress on Amazon , but I decided that $200 was too much for a Halloween costume.  But if you want to replicate her costume exactly, you can!   For $40, I found a sleeveless sequined blue dress with a v-neck.  You'll see it in our Halloween post.  I may look for a strawberry blonde wig or I might just do a temporary pink-ish hair color.  I'll wear my hair pulled back on one side and a dangly earring like she's wearing above, plus a super pink lip color.   Fun fact: Nick's dress sh

Fall Thoughts: "98% of All Diets Fail"

There are lots of numbers associated with the idea of trying to change your body size or composition.  The obvious numbers like the number of the scale, your waist measurement, the size of your pants or your body fat percentage. There are the numbers associated with a best guess for how much of what food you should eat, i.e. 800 grams of fruits and vegetables or 13 ounces of protein (at least for a woman of my size.) And there are numbers connected to how you move your body: how many hours you should strive for per day, how many steps you should take, how many reps you should "leave in the tank" during a weight lifting session.   There are also other numbers, including "the facts."  For example: 80% of Americans aren't eating the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables.  70% of Americans are overweight or obese.   And, my new favorite fact: "98% of all keto diets fail," which was what Dr. Robert Cywes, the Carb Addiction Doctor, who advocates for a

Fall Thoughts: A Simple Way of Eating

After sharing a few examples of extreme ways of eating, I've been thinking about some of the more simplified ways of eating that I've tried in the past. I think somewhere between the "simplicity" of the No S Diet and the "sensibility" of the 800 Gram Challenge, you probably have a lifestyle that would work for many people.   The No S Diet: "As simple as possible but not  simpler" What is it: The No S Diet is a "simple program of moderation."  It can be summed up in 14 words: No Sweets, No Seconds, No Snacks, except (sometimes) on days that start with S.   What's the science: There's really not any science; this is more of a habit-based way to moderate your eating.  Who created it?  Librarian by trade and computer programmer by accident, Reinhard Engels.   Why did I stop doing it:  I'm not sure.  I love the simplicity as I re-read about it! I'm sure I was lured away by the promise of low-carb/keto diets and then just foun
