The Best Place to get Your Lashes Done if You’re a Newbie

By on December 4, 2017

I’ve always been the one to keep buying false eyelashes to apply myself. However, this got old really quick when I would lose them at a party or get glue in my eye. Maybe I just suck at putting on falsies LOL! Either way I was interested in other options that could give me the same result: Long, voluminous lashes. When I discovered Amazing Lash Studio, I had to give it a try for my own sanity. I went to the Ballantyne Location in Charlotte, NC.

This post is sponsored, however all opinions are my own.

When I first Arrived…

The decor in Amazing Lash Studio is absolutely fabulous! Ladies, I love pink, and if you love pink too, you would’ve been stunned by how gorgeous it was. I am a big fan of aesthetics, and it helps create a atmosphere of trust when they have an eye for a luxurious feel. So, because I wanted luxurious lashes, I knew I was on the right track to getting them.

 

 

When They Start the Process…

They take you into a private room with your assigned associate. There is a soft blanket there for you in case you get cold, which I knew I would need. The woman I had was so warm and inviting! Lindsey did a great job of calming my nerves, since I was a newbie. Before entering the room they have you cleanse your eye area with their specialized cleanser just for ALS (Amazing Lash Studio)! It wasn’t too harsh, which is usually my critique of many face washes. She then taped my eye to prep me for the application of my volume lashes! Volume lashes have many lashes on each lash. Then I promptly fell asleep because I was so warm and comfy haha!

 

When I Awoke…

I looked in the mirror and was shocked at how real AND luxurious my lashes looked!! Plus, I wouldn’t have to keep applying them each day, I was good for 3 weeks! I highly recommend volume lashes because the fullness, and length is completely there effortlessly. I can’t suggest ALS enough, they have wonderful customer service, professionalism, and quality. I will be going there from now on!!

 

When 3 Weeks Passed…

Only a few fell out, but that’s because your natural lashes fall out daily anyways. Even though some fell out, my lashes continued to look nice because the other lashes were still so full. I truly recommend Amazing Lash Studio for lash extension newbies, because your nerves will vanish as soon as you walk in. This is the place you’ll want to keep coming back to!

 

With Love,

Alaya

The Best Tips for Choosing Perfume

By on January 11, 2017

Perfume Shopping

I know I’m not the only one but I love picking out perfume! With as many options as we have in the market today, it can be hard to know which perfume suits us best. Below I give clear, simple tips to making your decision quick & easy!

  • Matching Your Clothing Style to Your Scent

    I’m going to give a few examples to better explain what I mean! If your style is girly and haute couture you should search for a floral scent or a spicy scent. These scents help accent your style and personality! If your clothing style is more of a laid back tom boy, you can quicken your search by going for fresh and clean scents or citrusy scents! Matching your clothing to your perfume helps pull your entire look together to really nail any first impression!

    I am such a girly girl so I typically go for floral scents, I just love the smell of them. However, one of my best friends has more of a laid back look, and she almost always chooses a citrusy scent! When I was studying fashion merchandising, we had to research how perfume scents could correspond with your clothing! I’m so glad I had that course because I now I get to help you all and my friends make better decisions on their signature scents!

  • Do Some Research Before You Go to the Store

    Sometimes your nose can get overwhelmed if you smell too many strong perfumes at once. Also you have you to let perfume sit on your skin for 30 mins to see if it still smells the same, due to your hormones. Read some reviews online of the perfumes you have in mind so that you can skip over ones that have bad reviews! Perfume shopping can be overwhelming, but at least there are resources you can use to make it manageable.

    Also when you’re doing research, compare prices, see what stores are having sales! You may like a certain perfume, but one store may be selling it at a discounted price. It’s always good to get a discount, can I get a woop woop?!!

  • Know Your Levels of Perfume

    In perfume there are levels of scent strength, perfume being the highest and eu de cologne being the lowest. So if you’re looking for a light scent don’t go for the perfumes! Or if you’re looking to stop the show, you should 100% choose a perfume! Store associates have to smell and give advice each day, so they are literally they are the perfume encyclopedia! My extra tip for this section is to be open to what she suggests! You may be surprised by what you like!

     

I now know that when you go shopping for perfume, you going to look like a pro! Shopping is such a fun activity, but it’s always better to shop smarter not harder! When you walk by, I know people will be wondering what you have on, and they’ll be able to tell you know exactly who you are! If you have a favorite perfume comment it below! ๐Ÿ˜‰
