Growing lashes

Recently I partnered with Monat, as anti-aging hair care line.  The line repairs damaged hair and promotes hair growth.  I have to say, it is like no other hair products I have used.
1 month ago at Conference Monat announced their newest product~Eye Wonder!
As representatives we were able to purchase our first tube.  I immediately started using.
I have used other products that caused irritation or didn't cause any growth.
I'm happy to say that I have had no irritation probably due to the fact that the product is all natural!

 The above photo is my before photo (dry hair).  Note the lines under my eyes.
The above photo is 1 month of using Monat's Eye Wonder (wet hair). It is hard to see the growth due to my blonde lashes but if you look on the outer part of my eyes you can see it :)  I also have been using Rejuvenqe Oil around my eyes.  I'm seeing improvement in the lines, too!
I didn't take a before photo with mascara on, so the above photo is the closest to up close and personal of my lashes I could find.  They look like eyeliner versus lashes :)

 The above after photo is with mascara and really shows the growth, as blonde lashes are harder to see.  I'm so excited about the growth.  I have tried the extended lashes but am not a fan, they feel crunchy and I rub my eyes too much.  Also, if the person is not extremely good, they will glue them to more than 1 individual lash, which then makes multiple lashes fall out.

 The above photo is a before side view.

 After photo without mascara
 After 1 month usage with mascara.  I'm totally excited about the results.  I can't wait to see what 2 months brings.

Do you wear fake lashes or are you a natural lash girl grow them myself?

Arizona/title nine

 Hello from Arizona!
I am so thankful to be able to spend this winter in Arizona and escape the Wisconsin winter.
The weather has been beautiful, even with a little more rain than they normally get.
These first few photos are of Danielle and I on one of the Vortexes in Sedona.  We are trying to feel the good energy.  I have to say "the only energy I felt was the sun and the wind" and that alone felt pretty good.
Me ~"Danielle, do you feel anything?" Danielle~"No".  Danielle~ "Do you feel anything?" Me~"No"
We will have to return and try again!
The Vortex behind Danielle is Bell Rock.
For the fashion piece of the post.  Arizona has been so warm that I have hardly wear anything that has resembled winter.  I wore this to a Rotary meeting and was a little warm.  I normally don't dress this casual for Rotary but I came to Arizona with all casual clothing.

Cancun Part 2

This post is a little late!
In the earlier post of Cancun, you really got to see the beautiful water and skies.
Have I ever mentioned just how much I love traveling and how I have found a way to travel for less?
If you would like to learn how, send me a personal message.  I love sharing!

I'm going to miss my boy.  Off to college in the fall.
The first outfit is all W by Worth
The dress is by Soma.  The fabric is great for traveling.  You can literally roll it in a ball and it comes out looking nice.

army jacket

When I have talked to you about branding and branding yourself, it is about being your true authentic self.  I have to say, the army jacket is a little off my branding and my true personality.  Sometimes your outfit for the day, may be more like a costume and who and how do you feel that day :)

I am far from an army gal but something spoke to me when I purchased this jacket.  It may be the strong trend that was pulling me.

eyelash skirt/Cancun

Hello from Cancun, Mexico!

Cancun is where we went for spring break this year.
   The beaches and water were beautiful.
  It was extremely windy while we were there.

 This is a good up close photo of my skirt, which I just love.  You can see the wind blowing, what I call the eyelashes.  In the evening, I will pair the skirt with a white or denim jacket.
