Latisse Update

Saturday, November 20, 2010
Hey everyone!  So I wanted to do a quick update on my Latisse experience so far.  This pic was taken before I started using Latisse.  Mind you, I haven't used any eyelash lengthening products since March--approximately 8 months (basically since I found out I was preggerz, lol).  As you can see, my eyelashes are hardly visible, and they are very straight.  My lower lashes are pretty short, as well.

So the one week update (sorry, no pic - you really can't see THAT big of a dif!) is that my lashes look a *tiny* bit longer, but they have started to curl at the ends too.  Yay!  I can tell that it's working, and I just need to be diligent about applying Latisse every day.

How I use Latisse:  I just follow the instructions -- Put a drop on the sterile brushes that came with the kit and swipe it along the upper lash line of each eye, once every night.  I was told by someone else who was prescribed Latisse that she was told to use it twice a day.  I guess this would have to be okayed by your doctor, because Latisse has the potential to mess with your eye pressure or something.  I'll have to ask mine the next time I see her.

I'll keep y'all updated, but I've been told not to really expect results for 90 days.  Also, as a quick update, my broken nails still need some time to grow out....especially my thumb. BLEH! Lol

Anyhoo, till next time!

Baby's Here....OMG!?!

Hey everyone, I just wanted to do a quick update, since I've been a little MIA.  I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on November 6, 2010.  I had to have an emergency C-section, but am recovering pretty nicely.  Unfortunately, I broke 2 nails at the hospital, and have now cut down all my nails. =(  It's okay though, gives them time to grow out healthier...or they would be healthier if I could remember to put on cuticle oil!! LOL

On another note, now that I am not pregnant anymore, I have officially started using Latisse.  I tried to take some "before" pics, but they kinda turned out blurry.  I'll be posting a short blurb about that when I have a chance.

Anyhoo, I'll try to post more nail stuff when my nails grow out.  Unfortunately, one of the breaks is about 1/2 way down my nail bed, and it's on my thumb. =(  I swear, my thumb nail is like the slowest growing nail ever....I suppose it could because it's also the biggest, but yeah...it's going to be awhile.  In the meantime, I'll try to figure out other beauty stuff to post about.

Don't you just love the Paul Frank onesie?  I think TnT actually fits into it now...but I'm trying to make sure he wears everything at least once, so he might not make it back to the Paul Frank one before he grows out of it.  We'll see....

Babies grow up too fast.....bleh, lol.

Anyhoo, till next time!
