May flew by! My poor hubby is still dealing with eye issues from emergency surgery he had the last week of April. We also had Mother’s Day and a bunch of family members birthdays. I just felt crazy busy and I am ready for some summer fun! Here’s what my family has been loving this month.
Latisse: Back in February I got my beloved eyelash extensions off because my lash lady moved and it got to be too inconvenient to keep up with my appointments. I was super sad, not to mention my eyes looked like a hairless cat. The worst part about having lash extensions is when you get them off you literally feel like you have NO eyelashes. This is for two reasons… your lashes are a bit thinner and weaker (I compare it to your real nails when you get acrylics off). Also, you get used to having these long dark lashes, and it’s a stark difference when they are gone! (you kind of forget what real lashes look like) Anyway, I have had extensions before and the last time I used Latisse and it worked great, so I got some again through my dermatologist. This stuff is amazing. After 2 months or so, your lashes will be long and thick. But don’t use the brushes that come with it. They suck because they absorb too much product. (and this stuff is pricey!) I would get so mad since I would have to use 3 drops per eye, because it would absorb into the thick bristles and nothing would get on my eyelid. I’m onto you Latisse people.. I know you just want to take more of my money! Now I use this brush to apply it and you will only need one drop to line both eyes.
Amazon Prime: Since my sweet husband had to spend a few weeks mostly lying on one side and sitting on the couch, he has been obsessed with the all the free shows and movies he was able to get through amazon video because of our prime membership. He probably watched every free movie that was available and he said there was a lot of good ones.
StikBots: I had never heard of these things, but Hudson was talking about them for awhile and when he saved up enough money to get one he STALKED me until I took him to Toys R’ Us. You can play with these figures by themselves, but there is also an app that allows you to create stop motion movies. My son has even created a few and he thinks the whole thing is so much fun.
Mermaid ANYTHING: Mila is currently obsessed with mermaids. She has a growing collection of mermaid Barbies and dolls. She brings them in the bathtub and crosses her legs like a fin while splashing on the steps in the pool. I used to do the same thing when I was a little girl, so it seems that mermaid dreams are timeless.
