A Confession

Well, I didn't think it would happen, but it did. Yes, I have a confession to make . . . I really missed those eyelash extensions I had put on for my son's wedding after they fell out!! I thought I could get along without them and I really tried, but I just can't!! Feel like I look so tired, old, worn out, haggard (hmmm- any other words that mean tired???) without them. So, I'm having them put on again. I know, I know, I admit it -- I guess I'm kind of vain -- but really, they make me feel so much better -- like having a great new outfit, losing 10 pounds or getting a fabulous haircut. Seriously, I am not one of those "high maintenance" women -- I get a couple pedicures during the summer sandal season; rarely, if ever, get manicures or facials or massages, so I think it's ok if I have this one little expense since it makes me feel so good. Plus, think of how much I am saving by not having to use mascara!!! Yes, there's my reasoning -- I won't be spending so much on mascara since I won't really need mascara with my long, full gorgeous eyelashes! Just had them put on and already am feeling so much better. See, aren't they lovely!!

They are beautiful.....you deserve a splurge!

I would imagine once you have worn them, it would be hard to go without...

I like your rationalization too....yes, you are saving money on mascara!

Hilarious! I have ALWAYS wanted to get those! I didn't know you can get them put on rofessionally. I've tried the glue on drugstore kind when I was younger and well you know, disaster! Good for you, life is too short! :)

Shari said...

You deserve the pampering! You should definately treat yourself more often!! The eyelashes look GREAT!!

Kim said...

I love reading your posts! They always give me a good chuckle. I know what you mean about looking tired, old, etc. I'm now wondering who that person in the mirror is that's looking at me because it can't really be ME. I'm going right out to the store and checking these lashes out.

Rachel said...

You go girl! The eyelashes are beautiful and you deserve to treat yourself every once in a while.

Have fun with the eyelashes!

Gorgeous! Why not splurge on yourself a little bit every once in a while. I'm curious, how long do they last? You look simply beautiful...now I want them, ha!

Bridget said...

I love them -good for you to have a little splurge. I need to look into them as well!

Erin said...

My hairdresser has them. I LOVE them. I want them too. Honestly, you have beautiful eyes! Wow!

Julia said...

Good gosh, those are gorgeous! I would want them back on too, and I truly believe we need those little extras sometimes for us. You sound just like me in that other than a nice haircut or a few pedicures in the summer, I don't do much for myself, but these are just fabulous, I bet they really do make you feel good. :-)
