My Eyelash Extensions Experience + a Floral OTS Blouse for Under $20


Long, full, standout eyelashes....I'm pretty sure that is every girls dream. My natural lashes aren't awful, but for the longest time I have been envying all of those girls with luscious long eyelashes. I had heard good and bad things about lash extensions, but I still needed to know for myself. I am so grateful to have found Susan with Wink Lash Bar  because she has been so incredibly helpful in laying out the facts for me and giving me the 101 on eyelash extensions. So, if you are like me and are interested but need to know a little more, keep reading because I am going to share my whole experience. 

After her own experiences and taking the time to learn the in's and out's of lash extensions, one of  the most important things to Susan is making sure your natural lashes are (and stay) healthy. Eyelash extensions are different from strip lashes because they are more "permanent" and can stay on your lashes for 2-3 weeks. So if you're looking to get the whole Kim K. super full eyelash look, slow your roll because not everyone's lashes are fit for that style.

The eyelash technicians at Wink Lash Bar take the time to analyze each persons lashes and make sure to find a style and fit that is perfect for YOU. After picking out the curl and style of lashes that you like, your technician will take you back to your cabana where she will look at your natural lashes to see what will work best with you. Depending on how thick or thin your natural lashes are can determine how much weight your lashes can hold from the extensions. You don't want to put too much because that can damage your natural lashes and cause them to break. The process takes about 1 - 1.5 hours and the whole time you are laying down with your eyes closed, which is super relaxing and a great time to get away from our busy lives for just a little bit. My technician, Dulce, was super sweet and made me feel so comfortable. She explained to me how to care for my lashes and products that you should steer clear from like products with oils in them. 

I think my absolute favorite part of having these lashes is that you can wake up and not put any makeup on and still look like a total smoke show because your eyelashes will stand out. They are really easy maintenance and are a lot less expensive than you may think. 

If you have any other questions that I didn't answer about the eyelash extension process, feel free to leave me a comment or send me an email at caloscloset@gmail.com and I will try and answer as best as I can! 

Now before you go, I HAD to share this absolutely adorable floral off the shoulder top with you guys. I seriously got so many compliments on this top when I wore it and it is actually under $20!! It is loose fitting but looks adorable with some skinny jeans or front tucked into some cutoff shorts! 

One Piece Swimwear Guide

One thing that I always get asked this time of year is "where can I find some cute and affordable bathing suits??". While doing some online window shopping, I started finding so many cute suits and had to share! I've said it before, but as I've gotten older I am gravitating more and more to one piece swimsuits. Now you might be thinking "um no thanks, I'm not 80 years old", but as you can tell from a few in the photos above, one pieces are HOT! Personally, I feel like they are super flattering and you can find ones that will hide all of those areas you don't want people seeing. So whether you are just picking up some new suits for the upcoming pool weather or you are heading on a summer trip, I've rounded up my favorites and I think you will enjoy them too! 

(For all my brides to be, I've linked some adorable white one pieces below that would be perfect for your honeymoon or bachelorette party!)

Spring & Summer Date Night Look

IMG_2590.jpg

Dress [c/o] eShakti | Heels Steve Madden | Bag (similar) Charming Charlie | Earrings [c/o} Lisi Lerch


When was the last time you had a date night with your S/O? A week, a month, a year? Sometimes we can easily get caught up with day to day life and forget to take time out to just stop and enjoy one another. I think that can be even more so when you live together. Once you move in with that special someone, they know EVERYTHING about you. A lot of times, I will go days without makeup, washing my hair, and could care less about how I look.....especially when I'm at home. While your significant other should still love you even if you are not getting glammed up every day, sometimes it is nice to just get dressed up for them and have a date night like when you first met (they will appreciate it too). 

One of TJ and I's favorite date night or day activities is trying new restaurants. Whether they are holes in the wall or upscale, we love food, adventuring into new places, and sitting and chatting about what is going on in life. 

This customized dress from eShakti is so fun, colorful, and perfect for an adventurous Spring/Summer date night! One of my favorite things about eShakti is that you can customize each piece from size to style. This dress can be sleeveless, longer, or you can even change the neckline all without paying those high custom designer prices (this dress is actually under $60!!). Paired with my favorite strappy sandels and some fun turquoise tassel earrings, this look will be sure to put a smile on your babe's face! 

What are some date night/day activities that you like to do with your S/O??
