Clumpy Lashes From The Drugstore

So I've been told that clumpy lashes are back!!
Well, don't I feel ahead of the curve... my lashes ALWAYS look like something out of the 60s!!
If you know me or follow me on Instagram, you'll know that there are few things I love more than a good mascara! A good DRUGSTORE mascara to be more specific!! I actually don't think I own any high end mascaras... oops. Anywho, I've recently found two that I have fallen HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE with!

First and foremost L'Oreal's Miss Manga Rock which is my favorite of the two! I've always been obsessed with the original Miss Manga mascara so when this one came out, I was all about it! Of course when I finally made the purchase and it came time to wear it for the first time I had to ask myself, " Did you NEED to own this so badly because it was a promising product or was it just because you liked the first one so much?" and "Is this really going to be any different than the original?" but as soon as I removed the brush from the tube, compared it to the original and saw that they were very different... I was all the way back on board and boy am I glad?!?
I was promised extremely voluminous lashes with an edgy, spiky, "punky" twist... I was NOT disappointed! I have naturally long and curly lashes but... my lashes have NEVER looked so good!!

my bare lashes (aside from the coconut oil that I use to moisturize... more on that another time)

Left Eye: Bare. 

Next is Maybelline's The Colossal Chaotic Lash.  With this mascara I was promised, as the name suggests, chaos... "a perfectly sexy mess". This mascara delivers! It gives me volume, and when the curved brush is used vertically... beautiful disorganization. It is the perfect mix of Twiggy and Grunge Princess! Yes, Please and Thank you!!

I've never been keen on how my eyes look without eyeliner but I 100% prefer both products WITHOUT it!! 

Have you tried either of these mascaras? Do you love them as much as I do? 

Fellow mascara junkies: what are you loving? and what should I try next??

Father's Day.......???

Apparently today is Father's day.

Right.... okay then......

Well in that case, I'd like to wish a Happy Father's Day to my mother-

"Amber WTF are you talking about? And how did you not know that it was Father's Day?"

Well my little nuggets, I don't really keep track of this day. Nor have I ever really celebrated it. You see, my Dad died just before my fifth birthday. I don't remember having a father so I don't really have a reason to celebrate.

Don't get me wrong... I'm not saying this from a "pity me" stand point. I don't need pity. I don't really feel like I've missed out on anything. My mom has done quite the job of being both parents for the last 20 years. She has worked hard to provide me with anything that I might need. She has surrounded me with people to fill any sort of void that I might ever feel. She has also taught me how to be a decent human, how to be independent as well as anything that a father is "supposed" to teach their daughters. YAY MOMMY!

I hope you didn't read that with any sort of bitterness... there was no bitterness. I've read a few articles lately about people/girls raised without a father... I've never really related to any of that. I don't feel abandoned or rejected. I don't really feel like I'm missing anything or have a part of me that's missing.  Maybe that's just me. I can't feel that way though because my Dad didn't CHOOSE to leave me. My mom always reminds me that he ALWAYS wanted me, that he ALWAYS provided for me and that he ALWAYS loved me.

So maybe I should celebrate that huh??

Anywho... I hope you all are having a great Father's Day and that you're celebrating. Whether it's with your Father, Mother, Uncle, or Brother... whoever is most important in your life
