Eyelash Extensions Review

I have been a fan of lash extensions for years. I just love the way they make my eyes look. I recently partnered up with Kayla from Bangz Hair Studio, to share her newly added eyelash extensions service.

I knew with Summer approaching it would be perfect for the makeup-free  days and events that I have in the next few months ahead.

The first appointment is always the longest, since you are starting off with a full set of eyelashes. It took about two hours and some people may use it as a time to take a nap, me and Kayla chatted. Kayla applied single lashes to the roots of my eyelashes with tweezers and a special glue. Kayla made sure to let me know to wash my face with an oil free cleanser and to use oil free eye makeup remover if you wear any eye makeup. I could not believe how amazing my lashes looked when she was done. It looked very natural and I didn’t even need any mascara, which is great and my lashes looked naturally long.



I would definitely recommend lash extensions if you have been considering them. Your eyes don’t feel any different after, they just look prettier. After about 2 weeks you can go back in for a fill in which takes about half the time of the first appointment. Usually within that time frame the extensions will shed with your natural lashes.

If you are interested in setting up an appointment you can call Kayla at Bangz Hair Studio at 864-224-9000, she’s amazing. Check out some of her work on Instagram! Also, if you mention this post, you will receive $10 off your first full set of extensions.

Inner Strength

I was afraid to go to Greek school and I was afraid to go to Sunday school. There were three girls there that always put me down. They know exactly who they are and I kind of hope that they are reading this post so they know what they put me through. I wouldn’t exactly call what they did to me bullying but it was close. It was enough to not make me want to go to those places. I dreaded when I had to go and face them. What if they made fun of my clothes? What if they called me retarted again? What if I accidentally wore something similar to one of them and then called a copycat? I begged my mom to not make me go. I begged and begged but I had to. I was afraid to speak up, who knows I may have said something they found funny and laughed at me. These girls were the definition of “mean girls”.

Fast forward about fifteen years. I feel like they still look at me that same way. At first I thought I was paranoid, but I know they do. I’ll always know that look that I also got back then.

Now it is different. I am a grown woman with inner strength. I am more confident in myself and don’t feel intimidated around them the few times a year that I do run into  them. If you are wondering what happened to them, they moved away (insert praise hands emoji).

I pray that my daughter does not have to deal with girls like that in the future. I pray that all little girls don’t have to deal with that. No one deserves to feel afraid to go anywhere. I pray that all girls/women have and find inner strength.
