Spring Trend Alert! Spider Lashes!

All over the runway the influence of the 60's has taken over!
Twiggy lashes are baaackk!!!
The Runway at Gucci, celebs like Rihanna, Ginnifer Goodwin and of course, Kim Kardashian -  all have been spotted with spiky, spidery lashes! 


You can still achieve this look without using false lashes, and I'll tell you how! 
First, you want to make sure your lashes are all clean, no mascara from the day/night before! Start off using a lengthening mascara, like L'Oreal's Telescopic mascara, or MAC's Extended Play Gigablack mascara over all of your lashes, top and bottom. These mascara's don't get clumpy easily, so later it on to get those lashes as long as possible!
Then, you want to immediately go over your lashes, while they are still wet, with a volumizing mascara (top and bottom as well). This can get clumpy, some spidery lashes are clumpy, you may have to remove a few clumps with your fingers while applying the second and third coats of mascara. 
I personally LOVE L'Oreal's Voluminous mascara. This mascara is super black and gives all the added volume you want! Letting you create you spider lash super easily! You can purchase Lancome's Hypnose mascara, but for almost $20 less, the L'Oreal does it's job well!


If you are going out and want to use false lashes to intensify your look, purchase spiky, spidery ones that fit your style! (I love putting strip lashes on first then adding extra long individual lashes sporadically over the lash line to give an extra spidery effect). 

For bottom lashes, you would want to apply individual lashes spaced appropriately to achieve the spider look you're going for. 
*This may take a little time, but this look is worth it for your night out*

How to Organize Your Jewelry...

There are so many fun ways to display jewelry. Doing this uses more of your imagination than anything else!

For Bracelets:  
Counter top paper towel rods are great if you want them stacked and takes up less space. If you have more space, the velvet bracelet racks are great so you can really see all the bracelets you have!

For Necklaces:

Tack them up on pretty cork boards is a great way to showcase your necklaces and/or earrings, but if you want them separate, a hooked tie rack for the wall is my favorite!

For Rings: 
Use a small decorative bowl for rings if you have a large collection. If you only have a select few favorites, you can get cute acrylic rings holders on amazon.  


All-In-One Jewelry Holder: 
Container Store and Amazon have great jewelry holders that you can hang on your door, in your closet, or on a hook in your wall! These are especially great for earrings. You can keep them in pairs and see what you have!

Need Glasses? Go Firmoo!!

I happen to come across this great site (, and even though I don't wear glasses, I purchased sunglasses and was very happy with the service and product!

If you need glasses, or sunglasses (prescription or not), Firmoo is the place to go! 

I got the frames below as sunglasses, non-prescription, and I am extremely happy with them. They are well made and don't hurt behind my ears (sometimes plastic frames give me a headache!)

What I really liked about their page is how they speak of their Vision right on their homepage ~

Our Aim - Vision & Fashion the Frugal Way

  • Vision - An ideal pair of prescription glasses as a half medical tool to correct vision should be made up of a quality frame and lenses with accurate prescription. We promise all our eyeglasses frames are of high quality. Besides, all eyewear provided by us goes through strict inspection by our experienced opticians before shipping to ensure the accuracy of lens prescription. That's why we keep the lowest return and exchange rate among all online optical stores worldwide.
  • Fashion - We offer classic and fashion glasses frames for you to choose from. All of these frames which are quite popular in the world are elaborately picked by our staff from thousands of frames in the market.
  • Frugal way - Our prescription eyeglasses are inexpensive even though with high quality, therefore, everyone can afford it.

Doesn't get better than that!!

I don't usually purchase sunglasses online because I never know how they are going to fit (I have a small head and glasses are too large more often than not), however these happen to fit great  (I was so excited!)! 

I looked at their return/exchange policy (because I had a feeling I may need to use it) and it seemed quite easy to have them exchanged if they didn't. 
Once I chose the frames I wanted, the process was quite easy and straight forward- I hate when I have to question myself if I am answering a question correctly!

I spoke with a representative at Firmoo, and I told them how I loved their product and since I am writing a blog about them, they were gracious enough to have my followers/readers get their first pair FOR FREE (you just pay shipping)!! Regular glasses OR Sunglasses!!
