Sometimes we share things we covet from afar, pining for the unattainable, and other times we share something we’re crushing on because we speak from personal experience. This way you have our Genuine Seal of LIP Approval — we don’t really have a seal at Life in Pleasantville, but if we did there would be a big rubber stamp mark on this whole post.
If you have inside info on anything we’re crushing on, please let us know. We always appreciate justification for what we list.
Candace Derickx My eyelashes are puny. They are sad little imitations of eyelashes really and even with mascara they’re kind of pathetic. I tried eyelash extensions for a time and while they are lovely, they are actually bad for your eyelashes, causing them to break and fall out. For someone who is holding on to every last eyelash I have with a death grip, I knew I had to stop. Enter Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes. First introduced to me by someone as a way to avoid false eyelashes for my girls at cheer competitions, I fell in love with it. Retailing for roughly $30 CAD, I initially vowed to only wear it for special occasions and on weekends. HA! That was funny. I’m totally addicted now and even if I don’t put any other make up on, I always put on my Younique mascara.
Anne Radcliffe – I want: a Himalayan Salt Block. Why? I don’t know! But I heard it’s amazeballs! And it’s a kitchen “gadget!” And you can serve on it and cook on it and use it to marinate stuff. Basically, it’s like the Jr. Mad Scientist Kit for Food Bloggers. In fact, I should probably have more than one, so I can have one that stays all pretty and another that I cure on my stove so I can cook with it. Guilt free.
