    1. Condition your lashes

    By applying cold-pressed unrefined oil such as marula or castor oil from the roots to tips, you thereby strengthen your eyelashes. Both marula and castor oil hydrate the lashes, but notably castor oil helps lashes grow longer. Use a clean finger to coat the lashes with the oils or use a spoolie brush into the oil and swipe. Do whatever works for you and is best for you.

    2. Use a lash growth serum

    The average lash growth cycles last from 30 to 60 days. If lashes are dry and fragile, then lashes can fall out prematurely. Using RevitaLash or GrandeLeash-MD, noted growth serums, help prevent both breakage and brittleness.

      3. Take a type of B-vitamin known as Biotin

      Biotin helps promote strong hair, skin, and nails. Talking to your doctor, if you are curious, can be the quick fix for you. Vitamins are crucial for all parts to the body. So, why is the eyelashes an exception? There is not. So, start taking vitamins for eyelashes as well. They can help you do wonders with them. That is the truth.

      4. Before applying mascara, curl your lashes

      When applying mascara, if you curl your lashes after doing so, there is a great risk that you can get your lashes stuck to the curler. Hereby, your lashes get pulled out after you release the curler. Additionally, if you do not properly clean out the mascara you use at night, and try curling the lashes next morning, your lashes become dry and brittle. Your lashes as a result can break if you try to curl them. Curling your eyelashes when clean and free of make up is the best option for you.

        5. Use a blow-dryer to heat curler

        Using a blow-dryer to heat helps the eyelashes curl easily and makes the shape hold for a longer period of time. Blowing warm air onto the curler directly using the blow dryer is the first step to take. Next, you have to wait until it cools slightly and curl your lashes. This is a trick as if you would curl your hair with a curling iron.

          6. Rotate the curler

          Rotating the curler gives an intense look. Rotating the angle of the curler also gives you a big curl. You can do this by clamping the lashes at the base, pressing the curling, and holding the lashes for a few seconds.

          7. Do not pump more than twice

          Pumping your lash curler more than two times is not beneficial to your eyelashes. It is said that doing this can make them look indented and crippled as opposed to “curled.”

          8. Use a moisturizing mascara

          Lashes are hydrated when you use a moisturizer that keeps your mascara fully hydrated. Trying Rodial GlamoLash Mascara XXL is great for starting. It just might be the trick to get the perfect eyelashes that you have been waiting for since such a long time! Try and see for it. You will see the difference sooner or later.

          I hope you found this article well informative. Some of these things might have interested you because keeping your eyelashes maintained and well-protected is important. I hope you the best in your endeavors to keep them looking as spectacular as you! Best of luck.

          35 Anniversary Ideas to Bring You Closer Together

          35 Anniversary Ideas to Bring You Closer Together

          Every mature relationship has had a less-than-memorable anniversary. Maybe one of you forgot, or both of you got busy with work, kids, family issues, or something else. Whatever happened, the day came and went without fanfare. And neither of you seemed to notice or much care.

          But for the health of any relationship, it’s important to make important days feel special. Anniversaries offer the wonderful opportunity to relive beautiful memories, practice gratefulness for your partner, and to show your love and strengthen your bond. Make this year’s anniversary with your significant other something special  — one that will bring you closer together.

          The best way to create a memorable anniversary is to do something new and different together as a couple. Stretch yourselves a bit.

          While boredom can silently kill a relationship, new experiences reinforce the shared bond you already have and create strong new memories. Just think back to the most significant memories you have right now with your spouse and imagine what new ones you can create!

          While you enjoy your chosen anniversary activity, be sure to keep a positive attitude and make your partner happy too on that day. Leave all arguments and day to day detail behind. Just celebrate your relationship. Whether you’re going to spend the day together at home, getting away, or having a wild and crazy new experience together, you can have your best anniversary yet!

          If You’re Staying In

          1. Spend an evening with no technology, just the two of you and maybe a board game. It’s hard to keep ourselves away from our computers and smartphones long enough to have a meaningful conversation. Make a rule not to use your tech and you’ll rekindle your relationship!
          2. Make wine or beer together. If you enjoy drinking together, this is a fun activity to try together. Just remember to buy the necessary equipment ahead of time.
          3. Learn something new about each other. With an open mind, try asking some of the New York Times’ 36 questions that lead to love. They’ll help spark intimacy and will lead to some really honest moments.
          4. Have a lazy day. Breakfasts in bed, spend all day in bed talking and napping. Follow breakfast with champagne and dessert! If you feel like getting more active, cook together or play some games. Here’re some simple breakfast ideas for you.
            • Learn to dance at home. This is best for those active couples who work out together and also enjoy learning something new together. Just go on Youtube to find any music with dance tutorials and learn together.
            • Visit model homes or open houses and plan your dream home.
            • Have a special dessert – champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Having an unusual treat makes a day feel extra special. If you want to make the dessert really special, try these tasty dessert recipes.
            • Create a playlist of your favorite songs as a couple. Choose songs that tell your story, and songs that you bonded over throughout your relationships. Here’re some love songs ideas for your inspirations.
              • Write your love story. Write it together or ave each of you write your own and then bring them together in an interesting, both sides of the story format.
              • Get a fondue pot. Fondue is a fun way to enjoy melted cheeses (for savory items) and melted chocolate (for sweeter treats).
              • Decorate! Turn your home into a dressed-up french cottage, a sophisticated restaurant, or simply with flowers. The different ambience will immediately change the feel of your home and make it feel like a staycation.
                • Talk about the future together. It might sound simple and everyday, but imagining how you want to spend your retirement together, or planning future trips can be exciting and romantic.

                If You Want to Get Away

                1. Take a day trip together to your favorite spot. If you live in a city, it can be incredibly refreshing to get away for an afternoon and drink in the outdoors.
                2. Go on a scenic drive and stop at a wine and cheese bar. Or, if you’re lucky enough to have lots of options where you live, try a brewpub. There are tons of small craft breweries with fantastic food options too.
                3. Go camping. Relatively affordable and, if the weather’s right, beautiful and romantic.
                  • Take an overnight backpacking trip. For the more adventurous couples, backpacking is an even more intense way to challenge yourself physically while becoming one with nature.
                  • Take a wine tasting tour. If you live on the West Coast or in the Northeast, take a drive to the nearest winery. Many offer relatively inexpensive tastings and deals if you purchase a certain amount.
                  • Take a scenic train trip. Taking the train means less stress traveling: nobody has to drive, you don’t have to stop for breaks every few hours, and you can sleep if you need to!
                  • Save up for a destination vacation. What better time than your anniversary to enjoy the beach at a beautiful resort?
                  • Explore a new city. Whether you’re on a budget or have a lot saved up, you can have a great time just exploring an unfamiliar town.
                  • Rent a cabin for a weekend away, in the woods or next to a lake or ocean. If you like the outdoors but can only take so much nature, try glamping.
                    • Go on a retreat. Yoga retreats, meditation retreats, beautiful natural surroundings … they’re all the rage. Search for centeredness and calm with your partner.
                    • Spend a day at a food festival. Many cities have fun and affordable food festivals, occasionally based on a theme. Check out your town’s (or a nearby city) calendar for inspiration!

                    New & Exciting Experiences

                    1. Go spelunking. Dark, damp, and utterly exciting!
                    2. Go on a hot air balloon ride. Because the basket is relatively small, this can be a romantic and deeply personal – and yet thrilling –
                      experience.
                      • Try sky diving. If you and you S.O. are real thrill-seekers, sky diving can really push you to the edge!
                      • Explore the underwater world by snorkeling or scuba diving. This may take you far away from where you normally live and work, which is an added bonus.
                      • Experience white water rafting.
                      • Drive or hike to the highest spot nearby for a new view of the world. America has tons of beautiful mountains where challenging hikes (or drives) can deliver breathtaking views.
                      • Take a craft or cooking class. Up your craft skills or food  making skills, and enjoy something new!
                        • Take a wine and painting class today. These classes are easily found these days and even a beginning painter can create a nice painting. Challenging but relaxing, fun, and you get to go home with some artwork!
                        • Learn to salsa dance. Dancing is a fantastic way to actively get closer and coordinate physically with one another.
                          • Visit a nearby festival you’ve always wanted to go to. Have fun and let go with fellow audience-members!
                          • Spend the day at an amusement park together. Laugh and carry on like teenagers.
                          • Meet new people! At a restaurant, concert, or class, make it a point to meet new friends. Striking up conversation with someone you don’t know – but with whom you have shared interests – can be an adventurous and rewarding experience.

                          Whether your budget is big or small, and whether you have a little or a ton of time together, focus on each other. There are tons of options, in terms of location, level of physical activity, and cost. You can make the day special in a way that’s right for you!
