Got Clumps? Do you use 3D Fiberlash Mascara.

You took the plunge and decided to try Younique's 3D fiberlash mascara and you have had issues with it clumping? It is probably due to one or a few of the following.

You use regular mascara prior to using the 3D Fiber lashes. 
I realize the insert that comes with the mascara specifically states to use the 3D fiberlash mascara over your regular mascara, but as you know, all mascara's are not the same. I do not use regular mascara first, I find that it clumps. I personally like my lashes better with just using Younique's 3D fiberlash mascara. 

You're using too much gel or too many fibers.
When you first start using your new mascara, there tends to be a lot of fibers and gel on the wands when you remove them. You want to build layers and not try to achieve the long lush lashes in one coat. The mascara builds nicely and you should use less product and build it by adding more coats.

Not letting the fibers set.
If you don't let the fibers set long enough, when you go to seal them with the gel, it can cause the fibers you just put on your lashes to stick to the wand. Switching off between eyes gives the fibers some time to set and won't come off with a quick swipe of the gel when you seal them.

After I get the desired length I use the blow drying method, you can watch the video here for that: 

***If you haven't tried it, put down the falsies, break up with your extensions. Go to: click shop, add 3D Fiber Lashes to your cart and wait patiently by the door -- swipe on your fabu "Lashes" and be wowed instantly!!! 

Happy Monday Ladies!  Xoxo

I called him babe.

It will have been 2 years on February 12th since my ex husband told me that he never loved me. It doesn't seem like it has been that long. Nothing sucks more than your best friend telling you that he tried to love you for 5 years and just couldn't do it anymore. A million memories flooded my mind of us that screamed otherwise.

BUT guess what, here I am 2 years later living and crap. Who would have thought that the most dark times of my life would have brought confidence, strength, and the endurance to deal with all the petty stuff that comes a long with it.

So my ex and his girlfriend wanted to come the weekend after Christmas to see the boys for the day and give them Christmas presents. When my ex dropped them off, my youngest was crying and saying that he was so hungry. He had them all day and out of reaction, frustration, or whatever you want to call it, I snapped my head up and probably mean mugged him and said, "BABE! Uh did you even feed them? When did they last eat?"

The awkwardness of the entire situation was quite comical, but he blankly stared at me, didn't correct me, and said "Yes I fed them. He didn't really eat much." I was semi mortified, and quickly apologized and said "Sorry, I called you that for close to 8 years, it was out of habit." No response from him, he just told me that his girlfriend was mad and sitting in the car and that he needed to go.

I don't know how you can literally not live with someone, hardly speak to them, unless its about your children, and you still accidentally call them babe.


We all live and learn. Divorce is the hardest thing I have ever done, next to being married (if that makes sense).

You pick up your broken pieces and move on, live, love and love again, laugh much and often, hold you babies tight, find your passions, and just live.
