Amazing Lashes

Lash extensions, aka the best thing I have done to my face, EVER!!! To be honest, I was VERY skeptical when I first heard about lash extensions. I saw a lot of people getting them and I just thought it was weird and unnecessary. I also heard that they ripped out your permanent eyelashes. All of which is very untrue!!

Last September I received a complimentary lash service at Amazing Lash Studio for OCFW and was hesitant booking the appointment lol. I walked out saying, “There is NO way I’m ever doing that again!” Fast forward to now, and I have not gone a single day without my extensions.

The biggest mistake I made that gave me the initial feeling of not wanting to get them done again was the fact that I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I assumed it was a super quick process (less than 20 mins), that I could shower after, and that I could put makeup on right after. These factors originally made feel like they weren’t worth it, but after just a few short days with my new lashes, I was in LOVE. Just like any other beauty enhancer (fake nails, extensions, microblading, etc.) it is a process and does take some time to get used to.

When I first got my lashes, I could definitely feel them. Mainly because my natural lashes are so bad that I had no idea what it felt like to have long full ones. Now, I seriously feel like they are just a part of my eyelids and I love it. The lashes open up my eyes so much and take away all those extra minutes I was spending doing my mascara and trying to make my tiny lashes look big. Waking up every day with amazing lashes makes a big difference. ESPECIALLY if you’re a blogger!!

The services provided at Amazing Lash Studio Costa Mesa are so fabulous, and the staff is the sweetest. I also really love their vibe; everything is light and bright! They also have a beautiful crystal chandelier and glass doors that lead you to the service rooms. My favorite part is the complimentary cozy velour blanket provided by the studio. I literally sleep like a little baby the entire time I get my lashes done now haha!

How do I take care of my new eyelash extensions?

  • Avoid getting lashes wet for the first 24-48 hours
  • Avoid hot steam or sauna
  • Use ALS Eye Makeup Cleansing and Protein Removal Pads to remove any eye makeup.
  • Use ALS Foaming Lash Wash or a mild antibacterial foaming cleanser to cleanse the lashes.
  • Do not perm eyelashes or manually curl.
  • Brush with a clean mascara wand daily.
  • TIP: Sometimes mornings are a mess! Try washing your lashes in the morning and gently brushing the top side of the extensions with a finger placed beneath. If too much tugging is noticed, a quick stop at your local studio may be necessary to help separate these extensions.

After Your Appointment

Your lash stylists will cover the details of your aftercare at the end of your appointment. To maximize the life of your lashes, avoid direct contact with water on your lashes. Please avoid steam as it will weaken the bond of the adhesive. During the first 48 hours avoid rubbing your eyes and try to sleep without rubbing your face and eyelashes into your pillow.

If you still feel on the fence about lash extensions, please email me! I promise you will LOVE them!! shelbysoileau@yahoo.com

Smiling To The Fullest

A person’s smile is the most important thing they will ever wear. I truly do feel that way, and I’m pretty sure I’ve felt this way since I was in 5th grade. I had TERRIBLE teeth when I was was younger with a gap so big you could stick a finger through it (I may be exaggerating a tad haha.) I went to the orthodontist when I began 5th grade, forcing my mom to let me get cosmetic braces that I was not even technically ready for. I was so insecure about my smile and I was ready to fix it. Many, many years later my teeth were perfectly straight and I had a smile I was proud to show off.

Well fast forward 10+ years and I boy did I get use out of my new smile! I swear that is the only face I’m good at hahaha. I never realized until recently what all of that smiling really does to your face, especially to your skin. Towards the end of college I starting noticing I had worse crows feet (the wrinkles around your eyes when you smile) than all of my friends! I’m not even kidding you!! I was always comparing our eyes in our selfies and hating the way my face looked when I smiled.

Moving to California made those insecurities grow larger… A lot larger haha. Everyone here has perfect skin, no wrinkles, and looks like they are 25 years old! It’s crazy!! After finding out that quite a few friends of mine actually had botox and had been getting Botox, I was curious. I attended a skin care event at Jeffrey Klein MD a little over a week ago and it was seriously so informative! We literally learned about everything and anything skin care, body care, lip injections, you name it!

I received Botox around my eyes and between my eye brows. Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein that is administered non surgically. They inject the Botox directly into each muscle that cause those pesky lines. When the muscle is not in use the collagen in your wrinkles has the time to rebuild and erase the line for good! So the sooner you start to rebuild that collagen, the less you will need Botox in the future. The concept truly make sense to me now and Botox doesn’t seem like this scary face needle anymore.

If you’re worried about the pain; DON’T BE!! Seriously y’all! I am the biggest baby ever when it comes to pain, but I honestly barley felt even a prick. The injections are so tiny and quick! I seriously can not rave enough about Botox!! If you’re on the fence about it, get it and see how you feel about it. The affects will wear off in 3-6 months depending on your metabolism.

If you do decide to make the decision, I highly recommend going to Jeffrey Klein MD. These ladies are absolutely amazing and they make your entire experience is comfortable and FUN! Each staff member is truly the sweetest and super informative on the procedure. Most of the staff will even show you the work they have had done!

Call 949-248-1632 to make an appointment and make sure you tell them I sent you so you can receive a special discount on your first procedure! If you have any other questions at all please do not hesitate to ask! Shelbysoileau@yahoo.com

TOP: Gozon

LEGGINGS: Gozon

BOOTS: Bala Di Gala

When you wear something that is handmade, it makes wearing it that much more special. When you wear boots that are hand PAINTED…you basically feel like a princess! That is exactly how I feel when I wear my Bala Di Gala Fika Garden boots. The hand painted botanic flowers are so beautiful and are truly one of a kind since each pair is painted a little different! I really love how you can truly see every detail of each flower and that the paint job looks super professional.

These are so perfect for all year round too. When you see the shoes from the front, they look like regular black booties, but when you see the back it’s the perfect pop of color! You could seriously rock these in the fall and winter. Make sure you check out their site for their other hand painted boots. I really love all of their white leather pairs as well. I linked a few of my favorite below!Calzado_color_MG_9994

Kenny’s Strawberry Farm

DRESS: Target

HAT: Target

Have you been looking for something new and original to do with your family? It feels like we can easily get caught up in familiar routines by always going to our “go-to” places. Our family went strawberry picking for the first time with the SoCal Blogger Babes at Kenny’s Strawberry Farm and I seriously can’t believe I haven’t done this sooner!! Who knew picking strawberries could be so much fun?

This farm is by far one of the most beautiful places that I’ve ever been to. The farm is on a small hill surround by mountains. Being born and raised in Texas, I don’t think I will ever get used to seeing the mountains as the background of pictures! It almost looks fake to me haha. Anyway, Jackson absolutely loved picking the strawberries! These were by far the largest and most vibrant strawberries we have ever seen. They definitely make the store-bought strawberries look tiny!!

If you’re worried about there being enough strawberries for your family to pick; don’t! Kenny’s Farm has SO many rows of fresh produce, enough to bring some home for the week! They even sell fresh jam, cute apparel, and the cutest shop local bags. Make sure to stop by so you can taste the best strawberries in SoCal!

Tyler and I are always talking about when we will be ready for our next child and I swear it changes every time lol! When the times does come, I want to make sure any supplements that I’m taking are of high quality and not harmful to a fetus. I am so excited that I won’t have to switch energy supplements when we do decide to get pregnant. My last pregnancy I had to change SO many things when it came to my dietary intake! Not this time thanks to Premama!

I always drink my Premama Energy Drink Mix when Jack and I have our morning park dates! I’m usually still a little groggy in the mornings when Jackson is ready to head to the park, so I pack my water bottle and energy drink mix in the diaper bag and mix it there! He lovessss to watch me pour it in haha! I love how alert and awake I feel after drinking it and the watermelon flavor is so tasty. The energy sticks around all day and I don’t have bad come downs or anything like that. I love it!

If you are expecting or even thinking of expecting, I highly recommend using Premama products! I really love how their soft chew sleep aid are chocolate flavored. I have been eating these as dessert before bed and notice a difference in how fast I fall asleep! If you use a Premama product, drop the name of your favorite product in the comments! 🙂
