The Trauma of Eyelash Extensions

Yes, it looks great and sexy and it does your eyes wonders. It's supposed to last 3 weeks. 3 weeks of great looking eyes! You might think some discomfort is all worth it, but you're wrong!
I just got home from removing mine.

After 4 days of beautiful looking eyes, I woke up 2 nights ago with an eye infection. From 4am I was stuck in the bathroom using whatever eye solutions I could find to get rid of this intense itchy and stinging sensations my eyes were feeling but to no avail.

I tried making an appointment with a very irresponsible beautician (named Carol) from China who works through a boutique in Far East Plaza (#04-01) and pleaded with her to come in on her day off as I was in severe discomfort but she refused to budge. So I had to endure another day of infection being too embarrassed to go to the Doctor as I knew the scoldings I was going to receive from him.

So today comes and I'm on time waiting for Carol but she's an hour and a half late. The boutique owner starts to feel the pressure from me and decided to introduce me to another shop round the corner (called Charm) who also had the same services.

To cut the story short, I'm now home with swollen eyelids and a bald right eye. I left Far East Plaza in tears and swear to never introduce any client of mine to go for it.

Lesson learnt. Painfully and tearfully

Rakuu Designs Shoe Wheel

Rakuu Designs Shoe Wheel, $65 is God's gift to women! It holds up to 30 shoes, depending on the type and size. It stores everything from sneakers to flats and stilettos, and comes in black, silver, white and pink. The coolest part, in my opinion, is the fact that the shoe wheel is mobile. But don't go lugging it to your next vacation - chances are it won't meet the carry-on requirements!
Hmm... I wonder if they ship...
