PRODUCT REVIEW: Cigar Wrapper Baby Announcement

Custom-made for your baby, you can choose to add the place of birth, the time, the date, or none of those. I ordered some for a friend with just the name.

They have one flap that's sticky so it will stick to the other flap, to make it slide off of the cigar prior to smoking.

Nice product :)

Product Description
Our uniquely patterned adhesive is engineered to never make direct contact with the cigar itself and is only sticky on one side. Simply wrap the label around the cigar, and affix the adhesive end to the opposite side of the label. Do not let the adhesive make contact with the cigar... The band will then slide easily on or off the cigar without affecting the cigar itself. Label Dimensions: 3.25" x 1.13" Specially designed to fit cigar sizes ranging from 42-60 gauge.

PRODUCT REVIEW: Lovely Lashes Eyelash Curler

I received these in the mail yesterday and used them already (...naturally!! I love using mascara and liner!) I like the way it doesn't pinch my eyes at the corners or middle like others have in the past.
The curl holds well while waiting for the mascara to be applied.

I have included instructions below from the company's FB page and also a graphic near the bottom on curling, and adding mascara to your lashes. I hope this helps some of you who may never have done it before.

How to Use an Eyelash Curler Properly:


Remove Makeup

First of all you need to remove your eyes makeup to allow the curler being used conveniently and preventing your eyelash hair being pulled from its roots. If you try to use the curler with eyes makeup on, this will not help your eyelash hair getting curled properly, but might make them sticky. Use proper makeup removal. You can dampen a piece of cotton to clean the eyelashes hair.

2 Positioning of Curler

Put your eyelash hair right in the center of the curler, with one side of it on the hair and the other beneath the hair. Make sure your eyelash hair is in the middle of the curler so when it clamps down the hair is curled through one end to the other effectively.

3 Actual Curling

Once you are assured that your eyelash hair is positioned in the center of the curler, clamp down the curler and hold it to the position for about five seconds. Remove the curler to see if the eyelash is curled and then do the same process for the other eyelash. Although the use of the curler does not pose any major risk to eyes, still be careful about its use. Use a mirror that gives you a clear picture of what you are doing.

(more below, keep scrolling!)

Always TAKE YOUR TIME when curling and applying makeup, there's nothing worth rushing for when your EYESIGHT is on the line! Be careful!

And do NOT share makeup with others! 
(...ever heard of pinkeye? Nasty stuff!)
