I’m all about trying new things and eyelash extensions were definitely at the top of my list. I’m sure we’ve all tried the glue-on ones from the drugstore. You know, the ones that never really stick, are too big for your eyes or just look way too fake. Well, I finally got the chance to really just go for it at Deka Lash in Naperville and let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. The talented and patient Kaily, applied a full set of lashes on me. It’s been about a week, so I feel that I’m well acquainted with them.

The following players can choose to either pick an unwrapped gift from the pile or steal a previous player’s gift. Anyone who gets their gift stolen can choose a new gift or steal someone else’s gift. 6. After all players have had a turn, the first player gets a […]
