Lashes (and a giveaway)

I've mentioned it in passing a few times in other posts, but I got lash extensions put on before our engagement photos a couple of months ago. I've been wanting them forever, but was just waiting for a good deal to pop up. And the minute it did, I scheduled an appointment!

 In the first picture, you can see mostly my own lashes with just a few of the extensions on the outside corners (we forgot to take a TRUE before photo) and then in the second picture, you can see what it looked like when I was all finished. 

I love them. I've gotten a couple of fills since my original set, and I've added a bit more length since the first visit now that I'm used to them. My plan is to keep them until the wedding, and then once we return from a honeymoon, I'll (maybe, hopefully, possibly not) be done and will go back to normal. 

Anyway, here's what I wore when I got them done - no eye makeup at all, but check out how much they pop, thanks to the lashes:

Sweater: J. Crew Factory (similar)
Tank: LOFT (similar)
Shoes: Steve Madden (similar)
Handbag: Erica Anenberg (via HauteLook)

Travis and I are counting down the days until DISNEYLAND on Saturday. Being down in Cali is really making me feel like summer is near. 
I paired up with some lovely blog friends and sponsors to offer you a $160 gift card to Anthropologie so that you can stock up on summer swim essentials.
Please check out these lovely ladies' blogs and then enter the giveaway below! It runs from tonight through next week Wednesday and the winners will be verified and then emailed by me! :) Open to U.S. entrants.
