Chiclash Boutique

Hi friends! One of the questions I get the most on Instagram stories is, “where do you get your eyelashes done?”. You all know I LOVE my eyelash extensions. Early last year I tried to give them up and that lasted for a good 3 months but I thought about them every single day, lol.

I have been eyelash extensions for like 6-7 years. Whenever it was that my girlfriend Nikki had her bachlorette party in San Diego. I remember getting them right before that weekend and I was immediately hooked!

I’ve gone to several places since then. Actually the very first time I got them, I got them done at a nail salon by my house. Even though I immediately fell in love with the way they looked I have learned over the years the right and wrong techniques and I have learned that the nail salon that first did my lashes were doing it all wrong! She actually had me keep my eyes open and didn’t use gel pads or anything but again I didn’t know any better. Today I want to share a lash boutique who I have been using for the past couple months.

Like I mentioned, I have tried out so many different places in the Houston area so now I know exactly what I like and what I don’t like. Actually the individual that I went prior to trying Chiclash Boutique I still love as well but she moved locations and she works for herself now so not only is she too far to get to on my lunch break, it’s really hard to get an appointment with her if I don’t book in advance. That is why I started looking for a lash boutique by my office and fortunately found Chiclash.

Chiclash currently has 3 locations in Houston. A location in Montrose, Highland Village and Memorial area. I have been to both the Montrose and Highland Village locations. First of all the beds are like being hugged by a cloud! Haha, seriously if you go or have gone you know exactly what I mean!

The two stylist I highly recommend going to are Ivy and Jordan. And my one tip when going to get your lashes done anywhere is to be very specific on what you want. The stylists work on so many different people and everyone wants something different so make sure you share whether you like a natural look or more voluminous lashes. When going to a lash stylist for the first time I would even recommend getting a screenshot of some examples you like from their Instagram or website to ensure you get what you want. Just a tip from someone that has been getting eyelash extensions for a while now ūüôā

For reference, the length of my eyelash extensions are a mix between 13 and 14 and I tell them I like more fuller, thicker looking lashes.

Chiclash Boutique is also giving you guys 20% off your service when mentioning my name. I’ll link all of their locations here.

If you guys go, don’t forget to send me a picture!

Beauty Product I Am Loving: Skinceuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier

I am so thankful that I am able to try out different beauty and skincare products as part of my job here on We get sent tons of products; some drug store prices and some a little more expensive. I am very picky on what I share with you all because I know there are so many options out there for you guys and if you are anything like me, you have spent so much money on trying new products that don’t work so it is extremely important to me to only share products that I truly love and what truly worked or works for me.

The Skinceuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier has been a game changer for my skin. Especially in this brutally cold weather and the fact that my skin has been so dehydrated lately.


Why is Hyaluronic Acid important?

In general, Hyaluronic Acid is a moisture-binding ingredient that helps keep the the skin plump and hydrated. It fills in wrinkles and promotes collagen production for long lasting youthful skin.

I have been using this since last September. I started using it religiously each day, mixing it in with my daily moisturizer and even though I immediately felt a hydrating difference on my face, I started actually seeing the results about 5 days in. I don’t know about you guys, but I call that a win!

My skin type is more on the dry side but the Skinceutical site states that this product is great for all skin types: dry, oil and combination.

Because this product is a bit of a splurge I started to cut back on my daily use so that I could make the product last longer, haha. #ballinonabudget I now use it about every 2 days and mix it in with my night cream so that my skin can fully absorb it through the night. Again, I have been using this since September so the serum has lasted some time now. You really only need about 2-3 drops added into your palm with your day or night time moisturizer.

I can’t recommend this product enough! If you try it or are already fan I would love to hear!

Beauty Products I’m Loving: Huda Beauty Lipstick

Hi babes! I’ve been crazy over the Huda Beauty lipstick lately that I’ve bought so many shades I figured it was time to share with you all! I mentioned in this post that I started using Huda Beauty lipstick after fashion week but I’ve basically bought all the remaining colors since then LOL.


Here are my top 5 colors that have been on rotation:

Demi Matte – SHEro – Peachy Nude – I love this one for everyday at the office

Demi Matte  РDay SlayerРalso a great everyday nude but a bit darker than SHEro

Demi Matte – SheEO – A brown Nude

Demi Matte- Game Changer – Light Coral

Demi Matte- Lady Boss – A vibrant berry pink – Perfect for date night

They also have a ton of colors in the Liquid Matte. I have this lipstick in the shade trendsetter but because my lips tend to get dry the demi matte formula has worked better for me! It’s a matte finish with a touch of a glossy look which I love! The liquid matte is a straight matte. Both great but if your lips get dried out easily like mine the demi matte is the way to go!

Also, how fun are these names? Can I just be hired by a beauty company to name their lipstick shades or nail polish colors? #dreamjob LOL

Let me know if you guys have tried Huda Beauty or what your current favorite lipstick is!

Also, SURPRISE! I’ve team up with some great bloggers to give one lucky person a $1,000 gift card to Nordstrom! Please see details below.

Balayage and Haircut with Estilo Salon


Hi babes!

A few months ago I met with Estilo Salon and Spa in the Montrose area to discuss some hair services. To be totally honest with you I was just thinking a hair cut¬†because I literally have not colored my hair in over ten years. I didn’t want anything high maintenance. There are so many times I have seen a hairstyle in a magazine or on Pinterest and thought “I want my hair to look like that!” but then immediately thought about how much time I would have to sit in a chair and how often I would have to get a touch up. I wasn’t willing to commit. But in the middle of my conversation with Vanessa, one of the owners of Estilo Salon, I complimented her¬†on her gorgeous hair. And she was like “oh my gosh, I haven’t colored my hair in 8 months and I was like “gimme some of that!” lol so basically that’s how I ended up deciding I was okay with trying out color again.

About 3 weeks later I met with Megan for my hair appointment and I’ve been in love with my hair ever since. Megan was super sweet and was trying to get an idea of what I wanted to do with my hair. My main concern like I said before was that I wanted¬†it to be¬†low maintenance and also I wanted¬†to keep my length with long layers but I didn’t want it to look choppy when I wore my hair straight. She worked her magic and voila she gave my hair life and most importantly 2 months later I am still loving it and don’t feel like I will need to get¬†a touch up any time soon. I’m hoping I can go like every¬†9 months LOL but I’ll let you know. And just to give you more info about my hair type in case you were considering changing up your hair. It’s naturally jet black, super straight and again, it had been over 10 years since I colored it. I did a full balayage highlight with a gloss to add shine. If you are wanting to schedule¬†an appointment, I¬†can highly recommend Megan Halvorsen!


Although I won’t be needing to get my bayalage touched up soon. I will be going back for another blowout! They are currently running a blowout special so I wanted to be sure I shared that with you all too!


Please let me know if you guys have any other questions. I would be happy to answer them!

4 Beauty Products I Use To Make Me Look Well Rested

Happy Monday beauties! Today I am talking about the 4 products that I use to help this mama look less tired. I figured no day more perfect than a Monday to talk about this topic, haha!

If you are a mama, workaholic, late night studying student, this post is for you!


I love makeup. That’s no secret but the perfect lip color isn’t going to hide these tired eyes! I can’t tell you how many times I have gotten less than 4 hours of sleep and then someone compliment me on my makeup the next day. Before these 4 magic¬†products I would have probably gotten a “are you not feeling well today?”.¬†Why do people think it’s okay to ask that? It’s like just say I look like crap because I know that’s what you really mean ūüôā

Anywho, no one is going to be asking you that once you begin working these products into your regimen!

1- Dr. Brandt No More Baggage – I first heard of Dr. Brandt after seeing everyone post about the¬†magnetic mask.¬†The Dr. Brandt No More Baggage Gel immediately reduces the appearance of bags and puffiness because its enriched with antioxidant botanical extracts and caffeine. It is also said to help with dark circles but honestly I don’t see it as a solution for dark circles which is why I use product number 2. I apply the no more baggage gel after my morning skincare routine and before I apply any of my makeup. Let it dry completely before you apply makeup.

2- Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector – This full coverage corrector hides dark circles by brightening and evening out skin tones. It’s infused with ultra, fine light and reflecting illuminators and is water resistant. I apply this after my no more baggage gel and before my It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye.

3- It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye – You are probably thinking, “geez, this is a lot of eye coverage” but talk to me when you look rested¬†after 3 hours of sleep” LOL. The Bye Bye Under Eye is my ride or die. This product along with the Becca brightening corrector and Dr.Brandt no more baggage gel are amazing but if I had to give up all my makeup and choose one, it would seriously be this. It’s also perfect if¬†you¬†really¬†don’t have time for all 3 steps¬†or if you don’t really have a problem with under eye bags, you could¬†definitely just¬†do this product!

“Developed with plastic surgeons, Bye Bye Under Eye is infused with anti-aging ingredients including hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, vitamins, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants to cover absolutely everything while making your skin look younger at the same time.” It’s basically a no brainer. I wear the medium shade for reference.

4 – Becca Highlighter – This highlighting magic lasts forever because all you need is a little tap onto your brush and it will give you that perfect glow. I tap a little onto my cheekbones and nose. The subtle shimmer makes your skin look so fresh and sunkissed which in return makes you look¬†rested and¬†awake even though your body is like “gimme all the coffee.”

Gift with purchase is happening¬†with most of these items at Ulta right now so if you are thinking about trying any of them, this would be a good time to grab them. One of the many reasons I love shopping at Ulta is that if you are¬†not completely satisfied with a product for any reason you can¬†return the product for a full refund or exchange. This makes it stress free for me to shop beauty products online because I know if the shade doesn’t work for me I can switch it out without a problem.

Also, I know I am going to get questions about these faux marble brushes because they are so cute! I actually snagged them from Amazon here and I was so surprised with the quality for the price. I definitely recommend them. It’s a 10 piece brush set and it’s available on Amazon Prime.

Have you guys tried any of these products? What are some of your favorite tricks to make you look more rested? I wanna hear!
