Wednesday Wishlist- 5/22/19

It’s been awhile, but I’m excited to share my picks for the week. I love all the dresses J Crew has this spring. I’ve been living in my floral peasant minidress all month-long. Lots of great items are still marked up to 40% off at J Crew.

I want to take a minute to talk about these fabulous Le Spec sunglasses. (Linked below) On Sunday, my friend arrived at the brunch table wearing a similar pair, and I almost leaped across the table to steal them off her face. She was wearing this style and even snagged them for under $50 a few weeks ago. I’ve scoured the internet and can’t find the exact pair for that price. Regardless, $62 for a fabulous pair of shades isn’t too shabby. I’m probably the only person on earth who didn’t know these are the same sunglasses Megan Markle wore to her baby shower. (Better late than never, right?)

Goodbye, Lash Extensions!

I swore by lash extensions. Like actually thought I couldn’t look good without them. I had them on-and-off for about three years. I would get them taken off and noticed little or no damage to my regular lashes. This is the main reason I kept getting them done. Why not? It wasn’t like I was hurting my natural lashes.

Emily, who I know from childhood and even had as a roommate post-college, has been selling Rodan&Fields for years. I was all into her launching a super successful business, but I was never into the products. In February, she was running a promotion where I could get LashBoost for $20 off. I did the math and figured one tube of LashBoost was roughly the same cost as two fills with lash extensions. I removed my lash extensions and committed to trying LashBoost for three months.

I remember looking at Ben after the second time I used LashBoost and saying, “Did they grow yet?” He looked at me like I was crazy. Low and behold, just three weeks later I was messaging Emily to show her a picture of my lashes- they were already thicker and longer. “Oh, just wait…” she kept saying. This picture below was taken after three months of using LashBoost nightly before going to bed. I have one coat of Benefit BadGalBang mascara on.


Now, I use LashBoost two or three times each week. The tube that I originally purchased still has a ton left. I am shocked at how generous the “three month supply” has been as it has lasted me nearly four. Most days I don’t even wear mascara to work. I simply brush and curl my lashes. I can’t believe I’m typing these words, but I don’t intend to get extensions put on before my wedding in July.

If you’re looking for a way to achieve thicker, longer lashes- LashBoost is the way to go. (And for the record, this post is not sponsored!) That being said, if you’re looking to try LashBoost, reach out to Emily. She is super knowledgeable about the products and not pushy about selling products. (This is always a huge deal for me!)
