My Lash Extension Experience at Amazing Lash Studio

lash extension experience- Nancy SparklesMy eye makeup routine has always been primer, shadow, liner and finally mascara. From what used to be a whole 20 minutes spent on my eyes, it now take 5-8 minutes to get a beautiful eye look after visiting Amazing Lash Studio-Atascosita. I always played around with the thought of getting lash extensions, but considering how big of a financial commitment it would be, I always second guessed it when I was ready to pull the trigger. Thanks to Amazing Lash Studio, I finally got to experience this amazing lash makeover that beauty aficionados swear by! Keep reading to get a full scope of my first lash extension experience.

Summer Pops of Pink

Summer Pops of Pink_Nancy Sparkles_6 We’re slowly but surely getting into the hotter degrees of the infamous Texas heat. As the temperature goes up, so do our skirt length in hopes that we can bear with the heat even through the short walk from the parking lot to the front door. Ask anyone, I am literally the worst person when it comes to staying sane in this Houston humidity. The stickiness has always been my biggest pet peeve during these hotter months, so much that I create a very specific work wardrobe that consists of 90% dresses and 10% skirts. My main concern is always comfort; I need to wear fabric that’s breathable and in shorter words: not tight. Today I’m showing you all one of my favorite outfits for when I have a day full of meetings or if I’ll be running around town during the workday. Adding summer pops of pink is the perfect way to give your outfit that sparkle factor.

As a confidence and mood booster, this J.Crew Daybreak Dress fits comfortably enough to be dressed up or down for any casual and special event.

Bringing the Sunshine Back with Original Wear Travels Abroad

Sunny Days. Remember those Houston? While life has been turning around, the weather unfortunately just doesn’t want to reflect my mood. The irony? It’s literally pouring outside as I’m writing this post. While I love a goodnight’s rest to the sound of rain, I’m not entirely fond of the nasty humidity that dawns on us all day. I guess you can say that I’ve been waiting anxiously for sunshine.

Anniversary at Harold’s in the Heights + Quick Life Update

Brunch at Harold's

Oh, how I missed this. Putting my fingers to a keyboard knowing that I’m about to write things that I love and that truly make me happy outside of my job. While my job is a huge part of my life, this past month I took some time to reflect that I needed to realize that it wasn’t my entire life. I get to come home to a wonderful boyfriend, my cute little corgi and to a home that is literally down the street and in the heart of Houston. Lately everything was fogged and my tunnel vision of keeping my job my number one priority secluded me from even thinking that I had the time to write here. I did have the time, but I didn’t find the motivation to “put a pen to paper” and let it all out. I had to remind myself that while I am lucky to have the job that I have, I should still appreciate the other aspects of my life.Read More
