Stylish and 18 weeks pregnant

Ok, so I'm trying to refrain from spending more money on maternity clothes. I gave away my maternity clothes from 2 1/2 years ago and haven't asked for them back. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't wear them because I think that they are out of style, but I can certainly use the basics. In the meantime, I'll have to make do with what I have. I'm thankful I have my Stella & Dot jewelry to help me sass up my wardrobe. It's amazing how simple pieces of jewelry can make you feel like you have a new outfit.

So what pieces did I chose to wear with my jeans, black tank top with cardigan? A layered look was what I chose with the Avery chains and pearls necklace, with the La Coco silver necklace but I changed the Bloom Flower Black Brooch to the Sasha Flower Brooch. For the little stuff I added the Teardrop Scroll Earrings and the Deco rings. For a simply stylish and classy look!

BAD Lash Extension Vendors at the Long Beach Esthetician Show

I was so disappointed to see one of my vendors sell their products at the Long Beach Trade Show to people that are not even certified to use their product. People need to be educated in using their products. So many people just want their glue and they are the people that give Lash Extensions a bad name. This just proves to me that I chose the right lash extension company back in 2005 AND there's a reason why they are named the Global Leader in the industry!!! Xtreme Lashes is the best!!!

Looking for an Xtreme Lash Stylist near Ventura

I had Xtreme lashes put on during my 2 day class. I'd like to admit that after doing lash extensions for 3 years, I've never had them done on me. Now that I have them on, I'M ADDICTED. There isn't an Xtreme Lash Stylist near me - I have to drive an hour-ish to have them done. I need more - longer fuller lashes.

Fall '09 Jewelry Trends and Stella & Dot Style Tips - Part 1

MULTI-CHAIN NECKLACES in gleaming gold, brushed gold, chrome and silver with touches of gem stones.

What Stella & Dot has to offer:

  • Avery Chains and Pearls Necklace - looks great layered with the 30" silver chain and the New Crest Pendent. Add the Alana Embroidered Cuff in shades of black and gray with hand embroidered silk a tulle with Swarovsky stones. This collection will add chic rocker styling when paired with a T-shirt and vest along with your favorite jeans. For another option, try this combination with a long sleeve fitted T-shirt, a fitted pencil skirt and rock this look with some heels.
  • Adrienne Mixed chain necklace a GREAT PIECE and a MUST HAVE! It is such a versatile piece that can be worn in a variety of ways. IT can be worn around the neck and tied low, for another look wrapped it all the way around the neck and then tie it .Try looping the necklace almost in half, put it around your neck and then slide the tassels through the loop for a lariat look. This piece can be wrapped around the wrist several times then tied with the tassels hanging down for a fabulous bracelet. You can get so many looks from just one piece!
  • La Coco chain necklace in gold and silver - is my first S&D love. It's our most versatile piece can be worn as a necklace, bracelet and a brooch separately or combined for a more dramatic look. Wearing just the short necklace chain in gold layered with our SOFIA PEARL SINGLE STRAND NECKLACE is a simply stunning combination. Then try adding the Olivia mixed charms to the gold chain bracelet for just the right detail. There are also additional brooches that can be mixed and matched to change your look. An additional silk organza brooch in a rich pewter can be mixed with both gold and silver La Coco necklaces at $39 can change up your look. The Ivory Bloom enamel Brooch is a fabulous addition to the gold La Coco at $34.
These secrets have been shared by other Stella and Dot stylists and now it's time to share it with you. To view these fabulous pieces visit my

Stay tuned for more.

Another Xtreme Lash Class

I always learn something new in these classes. Had a great class with Xtreme Lashes Stylist/Trainer Trisha...amazing trainer and I'm so happy she's putting together a training site in California. Thanks Trisha.

Xtreme Lashes definitely provides better training and puts a lot of effort in getting new stylist trained properly. As a stylist, it's definitely an investment....better for me and better for my client. Not only do they have great classes, their product is hands down the best...could be the reason why they are the "global leader" in the lash industry. It could be why Xtreme Lashes clients get addicted. Love my job and the products I carry!!!

Xtreme Lashes vs Novalash

I was trained with Xtreme Lashes in 2006. Their reputation was the reason for my choice- global leader in the eyelash extensions. At the end of 2006 I became pregnant and with my pregnancy I had carpal tunnel. It was so difficult to do lash extensions during that time. I decided to take a break. When I returned from maternity leave I decided not to advertise for my lash extension services. It's now been 3 years and I'm back in the swing of doing lash extensions and loving it!

I was approached by another lash artist to help her while she was on maternity leave. I was more than happy to help her with her clients, however she wanted me become certified in Novalash. I agreed to become certified, but I am thankful that I didn't have to pay the full price for training and a new kit. In April of 2009 I was certified with Novalash.

It's been over 3 months that I've been using Novalash and at first it was my preferred choice, but now I think I've changed my mind. Last week I decided to order a refill for my kit with Xtreme Lashes. I received my kit this week and have been using it all week with clients.

I love the Xtreme Lashes eye/gel pads they are so much better than the Novalash eye stickers. Xtreme Lashes eye/gel pads are so easy to put on and the client notice a huge difference. Apparently I don't have the skill to put them on properly because I'm worried about the sticker scratching their cornea. Multiple times I have spent over 10 minutes just trying to tape down bottom lashes. I've tried Novalash's eye/gel pads and they seem to thick, difficult to use on smaller eyes and seem to have a little bit of lint. Obviously comfort to my client is very important to me, but so is functionality. It provides the protection that clients need while I use my sharp forceps to isolate their lashes.

I'm having a hard time with Novalash's glue. I feel that it makes client's lashes too clumpy, but perhaps its my application technique. At times, I've been told that I don't use enough glue, so I add more glue to my application and it becomes a HOT mess. There is also a strong fume that I find with Novalash's glue. My verdict on the glue with Xtreme Lashes will have to wait until clients come back for their touch up.

Stay tuned for my perspective on which vendor I prefer.

Lash Conditioners

Yes, they work! I've tried Revitlash and MD Lash Factor. Both make your eyelashes longer, but I did notice more fullness with MD Lash Factor. My preference is definitely MD Lash Factor. It will give you length, fullness and it will provide that natural curl so you won't have to use a lash curler. All I needed with MD Lash Factor was mascara.

Both lash conditioners will give you the length that it claims provide, the still have to use that mascara to make them stand out.

When I used MD Lash Factor it took about 2 months to notice a difference in length and by 3 months I didn't have to use a lash curler...just mascara.

3 of my clients are currently using the product and they love the results.

Lash conditioners are great in conjunction with lash extensions. It give the lash stylist a great foundation to work with, but it's always good to check the ingredients to make sure it does not conflict with lash extension adhesive. product of choice for lash conditioners is MD Lash Factor.

What are lash extensions?

It's my best beauty trick - lash extensions!!! They make you look and feel younger. Your lashes look naturally thicker and fuller. They can last indefinitely if taken care of properly, which includes a touch up every three to four weeks. The best part is that it eliminates the step to curl your lashes and put mascara less step to getting ready! The other part that my clients love, especially my mom clients, is the fact that they get about an hour to themselves, an hour of relaxation and to feel pampered once a month! Once you have them, you'll never go'll feel like your eyes are naked without them!
