Fysiko eyelash growth serum

So, I'm a complete sucker for beauty products.  I try to be as low maintenance as possible, but there's always a new product that sucks me in and takes up more time in my morning routine.  #girlygirlproblems.

I mentioned in this post that I was chosen by Influenster to test out fysiko eyelash growth serum.  From the Fysiko website:

"FYSIKO eyelash growth serum is not an eye makeup or mascara. FYSIKO eyelash growth serum is a powerful eyelash growth serum that is safe to use.  FYSIKO eyelash growth serum has been clinically proven to safely and effectively lengthen eyelashes and eyebrows. FYSIKO eyelash growth serum also contains a proprietary blend of ingredients, which has also been clinically proven to improve the appearance of damaged eyelashes and eyebrows."
I've never really thought of my eyelashes as being short.  I always say, however, that I couldn't live without mascara, and some testimonials have said that they no longer needed mascara after using Fysiko, so that definitely had me intrigued!  
Once I received the product, Influenster suggested taking a before pic of my lashes.  Here is that lovely photo for you guys:
 Ugh.  sans makeup.  Sorry you had to see that, readers.  See what I mean though?  My lashes were by no means short....they were by no means long, either, I guess I just never really thought about their length much, haha.  

I'm in my third week of using Fysiko now, and I am definitely noticing a difference!  My lashes are definitely much fuller!  Here's a pic:

Now, I know you can't really see a difference at all, (they may actually look shorter here in this one?) but I promise you guys I can see results!  The program lasts 16 weeks, so stay tuned for more updates on my progress!

Favorite things

I'm back! Sorry for the mini hiatus! 

I'm constantly on the lookout for new (or even just new to me) things to obsess over.  These things can be anything from a tv show that I can't stop watching to a new store that's draining my bank account.  Also, I love reading/learning about others' obsessions!  Here are a few things that I've been loving recently.

1. Lush
 Oh man.  I've always been a fan of lush.  I've never had one super close to me, so it's always been a spot that I've stopped at during my travels.  However, one just opened up in my mall and I've probably been there every day since.  I've not been able to experience the greatness that is lush until now!  I don't have to ration my products to last until I get to visit another lush/have time to order online, and it's glorious.  Stay tuned for a future post on all of my favorite Lush products :-).

2. Online Freebies
 Who doesn't love free stuff?  I've been known to scour the internet for fun freebies for hours at a time.  One of my favorite freebie blogs is Sara Saves.  She posts coupons/freebies that are actually things that she would use herself, instead of posting every single freebie and/or coupon that she comes across like other blogs.  

Another great way to get online freebies is Influenster.  If you are a social media junkie, influesnter is the spot for you.  It is basically a community of people who rate the latest and greatest products so that you can read up on things before you decide to buy.  Also, they have regular campaigns where they select a group of people to test new products and write reviews about them.  Recently, I was selected to review Fysiko eyelash growth serum!  I'm so excited to try it out!  Stay tuned for my reviews! 

3. The Mindy Project
 It's official.  I want to be Mindy Kaling's best friend.  I've loved her since Kelly Kapoor in the office, but her new show, The Mindy Project, brings my obsession to another level.  If you've never watched this show, do yourself a favor and start watching.  I promise you will probably finish the season within a day or so.  It's that funny.  

What are some of your favorite things?  Let me know so I can go check them out! :-)
