Great Lashes from Great Lashes!

After a few years of using many different mascaras, I spotted Mabelline's Great Lash on sale for a wicked price. It dawned on me that I use to rely on Great Lash in my late teens and throughout my twenties. It was what all my friends used. So I felt compelled to grab, not just one but two, one waterproof and one regular with a new cone shaped brush.  After using  the regular one daily for the last couple of months, I'm convinced that Maybelline killed it with the cone shaped brush. I'm hooked. The waterproof, goes on great but I reserve it for the moments where a water repellent is necessary.

Overall, I've just got to say, I have no idea why I ever stopped using Great Lash.

Let me just take a moment to tell you why you've got to trust my judgement, I absolutely love mascara. I love putting it on so much that I can apply it perfectly without a mirror...a talent that's fascinated many commuters when applying it on my way to work. I'm in love with it and I just don't feel like I'm ready for the world without it. 

I know that you don't have to spend a ton of money for mascara. If you know how to apply it, Great Lash will become one of your best friends...if it's not already in your cosmetic bag.  I have the best fail-proof process for applying mascara that will have people asking you if you're wearing eyelash extensions. You'll need about 10 minutes.

How to make your eyelashes pop

  1. Gently push the brush in to the mascara tube a couple of times. Do not pump it.
  2. Apply a thin layer of mascara to your eyelashes carefully covering each lash. With each stroke, pull the mascara from the lash lid to the ends slowly. Focus on lengthening the ends of the lashes using the mascara.  
  3. Then put the brush back in the mascara tube and wait at least 30 seconds. 
  4. Then apply a second coat repeating step 1.
  5. Then repeat step 2 and wait.
  6. Then apply a third coat repeating step 1.
  7. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until you build up your lashes what you desire.
With each coat and stroke, you'll notice your lashes getting longer and thicker. Great Lash's consistency is perfect for building up your lashes without clumping.  All I can say is, I am done, I will never buy any other mascara than Great Lash ever again. By the way, no one is paying me to say any of this. I just think you need to know.

Looking good does not have to break your pocket. The $40 mascaras are great but if you want something great with a softer hit to your pocket, try Great Lash. It's been winning awards for over 20 years and it's considered the best by many. If you haven't tried it, you should and if you have tried it, I know you're going to go grab it tomorrow because you remember how it worked.

Our lashes do something remarkable to our faces when they are enhanced. Great Lash is perfect for building up to the look you're trying to achieve. 

Let me know if you've tried it. If you have, I have feeling you love it too.

Keep loving yourself.

Parkas for 2015 Winter in Toronto

2015's fall/winter in Toronto has been pretty mild but the cold, snowy days of winter have started. If you don't have a good winter coat yet, I suggest you get out there and find one ASAP. Finding the right coat at a good price is not easy but I think I can help.

Check post, updated in 2018, on where I've find warm winter coats or parkas in Toronto.

Here are some places where I think you may get lucky...

From Curly to Straight in Less Than 1 Hour

My hair has grown a lot since I stopped relaxing. The transition took a long time, about two years, so I'm not about to damage it again. Wearing my hair natural has helped my hair to gain strength and thickness. But sometimes I just want to wear it straight and that means being careful not to damage it.

You've been sending me question about blowouts and how I go from curly to straight without doing severe damage. When it comes to hair growth, I have two key pieces of advice for you. Make sure to give your natural hair moisture and go the extra mile to protect it from heat. That's how I achieved the results in the before and after growth pic below.

These results are all me. I haven't been to a hairstylist in a very long time. Not because I can't find a good one, there are many talented stylists in Toronto. I just prefer to do my hair myself myself. Actually, anyone that knows me will tell you that I LOVE♥ doing my own hair. It comes out exactly how I want it to.


Von Doughnuts on Danforth

The doughnut in this pic is not just any doughnut, it's a Caramel Salt N' Pepa doughnut from Von Doughnuts. It is absolutely delish! I discovered Von one evening strolling along the Danforth with my family after dinner. As soon as we saw the big orange sign and my daughter's favorite word "Doughnuts", we had to check it out.

I'm hooked now but not just because of the doughnuts. I absolutely love the vibe of this place. It's just chill. The people who work there make it even better. My favorite is Nora, we bonded over doughnuts. Well, actually, she's the only Von employee I have met.  As you can see in the pick below, by the time we left, Nora was blowing good-bye kisses. We love her and we'll be back.

We dropped in a little too close to closing time so we only had the Caramel Salt N' Pepa and a few lightly sugared doughnut holes to choose from. But Miss Nora made sure we knew what doughnuts to come back for by reading off the list of flavors …
