MY SEXY EYELASHES..............extensions lol.


Eyelashes extensions are the latest trend to enhance your appearance.
But i must say they come with A LOT  of hassle, I can say this out of personal experience because I spent the last few days stuck to the mirror for hours on end, trying to glue on a bunch of little bristles on to my face.
Believe me, it is not at all close to as easy as i had imagined it.

First the glue kept drying up,  the tweezer kept letting go of the lashes and they would fall off, and
my eyes wouldnt give in to the pressure of looking beautifull and were a rainfall of tears. This obviously did not help the situation.
These are only a few of the hassle of  having sexy eyelashes, not mentioning not being able to
properly wash your face or oil it since you dont want the hours put into it, to go in vain.

Nontheless I must admit that having a bunch of long curly black eyelashes is the sexiest thing I have
tryd in longer than i can rememeber.
There is something about those captivating eyes that makes you feel glamorous, sexy and flirty all at the same time!

I finaly got my cousin Camelyn  to perfom this what i would call surgical procedure (only coz of the tweezers and the time spent - abit blonde)  and I must say i looked SEXY. 

(the pictureabove is of the exact lashes i used, individual lashes work much better than the ones that are joint in a row, since they last longer)


My vanity had the best of me and i wouldnt let Camelyn stop adding more and more lashes, the fuller they became the more i wanted, she is a fashion guru and obviously knew when abit more was abit too much and stoped ( i honeslty dont blame anyone wearing peacock fethers on their eyelids, they obviously just dint know when enough was Enough).

(obviously this picture makes the feathery lashes look good, but its only coz its a picture! cant imagine myself walking down the street with those... or can I..?!?!  lol )

( thats e with my eyelashes all done lol bt honestly i dint get a chance to take a pic but next time i will and add it as a comment here :-)

The after effect makes it all soo worth it, and in the true sense its not such a nerve breaking
process, since my cousin managed to do it in barely half an hour. I gues it was just my left handed
ameture skills that made it look soo distressfull. (sorry to Kellen and Jacky for giving u the wrong
impression lol)
Oh and my eyelashes lasted almost two weeks, though i must admit i was abit too inconsiderate of there needs, but what cani say.... Long weekends :-)

So eyelashes ARE TOTALY WORTH IT and as i write this blog am already thinking of wether i can get them done again Tomorrow.

Btw sexy  eyelashes are one of Kim Kardashians best (not)kept secret, i think she defines beauty in so many ways, and her eyes are partly to thank for that!

Ps. Drop me a comment if you want the total info on which eyelashes work best and what glue works best with it and who best to do it for you ( i gues i dint just waste loads of hours on my lashes for nothing)

Thats me looking good with my fascinator ;-)

After watching the Royal Wedding of William and Kate, women were streaming into the shop asking me for fascinators. Not even knowing their name they just had to describe them for me to instantly
know what it was and within afew days have them fully stocked in the shop.
The Royal wedding was obviously the TREND setter for the now infashion FASCINATORS.

A Fascinator is a fashionable hair accessory worn on the head. It may resemble a small hat but is held in place by a band, clip, pin or comb. Fascinators are usually worn by women, along with formal attire. Fascinators may be made from a variety of materials including sinamay, feathers, grosgrain, swarovski crystals, satin, silk, and tulle.

A Fascinator can be worn to weddings, christenings, a day at the races, cocktail and garden parties. Brides may prefer a veiled Fascinator to a tiara, and the bridesmaids and other members of the wedding party may like to wear matching or complimentary wedding Fascinators

Here are some of the commonly sold fascinators found in  Kenya, and obviously in my shop!

Just like me, i bet alot of you have always wonders the difference betwen all those French terms on your perfume or cologne mean.
I thought this might give you all an insight into knowing your fragrances better :-)


What is the difference between Perfume, Eau de Parfum (EDP), Eau de Toilette (EDT), and Eau de Cologne (EDC)?
The differences are simply a matter of the amount or concentration of oils (juice) in the fragrance. The higher the concentration of "juice" the longer your fragrance will last, and the less you need to apply
The highest concentration of "juice" is in perfume (or parfum).  
Next would be Eau de Parfum,  
then Eau de Toilette/ Eau de Cologne
 After Shave has the least amount of oils. . 

Why do some fragrances seem to last much longer than others?
People with dry skin usually find their fragrance holding time shorter than those with oily because oily skin has more natural moisture to hold in the fragrance. PH levels (amount of acidity in our skin) also varies slightly from person to person. Our individual levels of PH will determine how each ingredient in a fragrance will react.


How can I make my scent last longer?
 To achieve a longer effect, try layering your fragrance. Using the fragrance bath gel, (if the company offers one), then the moisturizer or powder, and then the Eau de Toilette, Eau de Parfum or Eau de Cologne, will usually have a longer lasting effect. Also, apply your fragrance low on the body, as well as behind your ears and on your neck, so that the scent rises and you won't lose it as quickly. A light spray on the hair can last all day.


What is the difference between a splash and a spray?
There is absolutely no difference in the fragrance. The difference is in the application only. However, a spray bottle, being ostensibly sealed all the time, may actually have a longer shelf life. Making the decision between spray and splash is entirely a matter of personal preference.

Why does fragrance contain alcohol?
Alcohol makes the fragrance emanate from your skin. Without alcohol, you would be the only person who knew you were wearing any fragrance at all.

What do fragrance notes refer to?
Fragrances are comprised of many different scents, these scents are called "notes." · Top notes are very light and last just a few minutes (5-10 minutes). · Middle notes become apparent in about 15 minutes after application. These can last up to an hour or more. · Bottom notes are the heavier ingredients. These last the longest, usually for several hours. How can I keep my fragrance from going bad? Keep all fragrance in a cool, dry area, and away from windows as sunlight can unbalance the various ingredients. An opened bottle should be kept in its box to insure a longer shelf life.

Why does a fragrance last longer on some people?
Blondes or people with light skin have a tendency towards dry skin, and fragrances are basically oils that will be absorbed by the skin like moisturizers. To help your fragrance last longer use a matching body lotion or unscented body lotion to apply to pulse points before applying your fragrance.

Why do fragrances smell differently on different people?
Body chemistry, diet and age affect fragrances on their skin. Also, fragrance consists of many essential oils. Certain essential oils have affinity to our skin, and they may be absorbed while other may not. This creates an imbalance on the skin and accounts for the difference.

How should I or where should I apply fragrance?
Fragrance should be applied to pulse points. This is where the blood vessels are closest to the skin giving off more heat and acting like mini fragrance pumps. Pulse points are the wrist, behind the ear, crook of the arm and knee, base of the throat. Also, for long lasting fragrance spray at the ankles, it allows the fragrance to blossom up.


Does perfume need special handling?
Fragrances should be kept away from excessive heat or cold, and to avoid evaporation, the cap must be tightly closed to maintain fragrance integrity. Also, do not expose the fragrance for any length of time to sun light.

Are there other uses for a fragrance other than application to the body?
You can put a few drops of your favorite fragrance in a bath or a few drops in the water when washing your lingerie or spray on artificial flowers.

How long will a fragrance last on me?
Fragrances are designed to last about 4 hours or so. Some people may notice that a particular fragrance lasts all day but by then it will not smell as it's supposed to. You must re-apply once or twice a day.

How long can I keep my fragrance stored?
Fragrances don't last forever. There are certain precautions though that will ensure the quality of the fragrance. Keep the bottle in a dry, dark place. Heat can also destroy a fragrance so keep it from extreme temperatures. Fragrances usually last 3 years from the date they were manufactured.


PS. Just incase you dont know, Pour Homme means for men, and Pour Femme means
       for women.
