How girly I’ve been feeling these last few days – and it’s all thanks to my new lashes. You see – I’ve never had long lashes. My elder sister once told me that if you trimmed them – the eyelashes that is – they would grow back longer and thicker. They didn’t. And since I’ve tried just about every beauty trick to get them to appear more lush. I can highly recommend the transformation even though it’s an arduous two-and-a-half-hour glueing process which costs about R700 for a full set. They last about 60-90 days.

At first I felt a bit drag-queenish I must confess but then after getting use to them I have discovered what an integral part of communicating and flirting they are!
