3D Mascara Review and Video

My eyelashes are naturally very short and stubby— basically the opposite of the type of va-va-voom lashery I want to have going on. Oh, and I’ve tried falsies. I’m not sure if it’s my wrinkly lids or what, but I have yet to successfully apply false eyelashes. But you know what? It doesn’t even matter anymore. Because I’ve found 3D mascara. 3D Fiber Lashes are the bomb diggity Yup, I’m throwing it down with circa mid-90s slang. Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes is the mascara that I’ve been waiting for all this time. Seriously, I thought I’d have to deal with my laughably short lashes and forever be jelly of the lush, long lashes so many other ladies enjoy… and then the 3D Lashes caught my eye. I could not help myself and immediately signed up as a presenter, and oh my— I am so glad I did. The amazing makeup I got in my kit (and all the makeup I’ve gotten since.. and there’s a lot!) has supercharged my newfound makeup obsession in a whole new way. Note that you can use 3D Fiber Lashes on its own (as I prefer to do), or you can use it along with your favorite mascara and turbo-charge your current lash routine. How to get sky-high lashes without falsies For me, makeup isn’t about covering up perceived imperfections or looking like someone other than me— no, for me, it’s been about rediscovering my identity as a woman, separate from all the other hats I wear as a mom and a wife. I love Younique’s mission, and I’m happy to be affiliated with such a standout company that cares... read more

Goals and Gratitude Day 2: Six Months

Today, my baby (kid #3) is 6 months old! Third time around— maybe you’d think I’d get used to it, but nope, still get a tad weepy when little milestones like this are hit. 🙂 Gratitude Today I’m taking a moment to express gratitude for little baby smiles and babbling, bubbly little giggles and slobbery almost-kisses— even that scratchy, pinchy thing he does to any part of me he can grab onto when he’s breastfeeding. Happy 6 months, little baby. 🙂 Happy 6 months, my squishy little bowling ball! I love your pudgy chipmunk cheeks, crazy hair, and fat little feet that inexplicably smell like chocolate. ❤️ A post shared by kristina *cheska* Q (@cheskaq) on Feb 2, 2015 at 6:39pm PST Goals I got a fresh new Baron Fig notebook last week, and it’s time to christen the pages with some thoughts, goals, or perhaps some freehand doodling. You know I love paper, right? Gawd my fresh new @baronfig notebook is beautiful. I hesitate to sully the crisp pages with my chicken scratch, but obv, I bought it to write in it, or doodle, or something. #ilovepaper A post shared by kristina *cheska* Q (@cheskaq) on Jan 29, 2015 at 7:42pm PST Inspiration I’m currently reading #GIRLBOSS by Nasty Gal founder, Sophia Amoruso. I’m about a third of the way through, and it’s awesome, motivational, inspirational, and highly entertaining. I recommend... read more

Birthday Month of Goals and Gratitude – Day 1

February is my birthday month. (Yay!) This year, February is beautifully symmetrical, its four weeks beginning on a Sunday (today) and ending on a Saturday (the 28th). It is the perfect month for a 28 day challenge, and I’m up for one. Seriously, it’s all kismet (er, or something like that). Look at how pretty those 28 days look! Goals and Gratitude – Day 1 Today, I want to take a moment and focus on how thankful I am for the health and relative comfort & happiness my family and I are lucky enough to enjoy, in no small part due to my hardworking husband, an amazing job that I am so grateful for and love doing, the support of our families, and a touch of kismet. Of course it would be cool to have more, to be more, to see, taste, touch, and do more. But you know what? For what I do have, I am grateful. I am happy. And to quote the Jacobs brothers (as well as, like, any happy person), life is... read more
