Flying Pig + Latisse UPDATE

Well, I picked up my marathon registration goodies from the Expo this morning so I am ready for tomorrow morning!  Race starts at 6:30am so I leaving the house at 5:15am.....yikes!  I think I need to go to bed NOW (it's 5pm here )....Okay well maybe I will wait until I eat my pasta dinner :)

  Items from my goodie bag and including my bib number & starting info (Corral "B") - they call the corrals for this race "pig pens" LOL :)
 "The Hero Lies in ALL of Us"!
 So I couldn't resist picking up a couple of extra shirts at the expo (the one provided is on the left)!

 I will be sure to post my race day pics as soon as I get them.  Very excited to see how I finish!

I also wanted to take a minute to update you on my experience with Latisse this first week. I took these pics on Wednesday which was 1 week from when I started using the product.  I have to tell you that the results are amazing already in the first week!  I have definitely seen thicker, darker and longer lashes already. 

Here was day one (my natural lashes before starting Latisse) below:

 And here (below) they are after only 1 week - you can see a difference in the length already!  

And below you can see what they look like now with mascara....I can't believe this is only 1 week. I didn't expect results so quickly, but I am super pleased so far. I have not had any ill side effects thus far.  I have noticed though that you really want to wait until you are going to sleep to do the application.  Perhaps it is because the solution transfers from the top lashes to the bottom and naturally some does get in the eye making it feel "tired" to me - kind of that feeling when your eyes are just really tired and you feel like you just want to close them, you know? It is 100% safe for the eyes as that is what it was originally designed for and it doesn't hurt or sting or anything but it is a bit annoying to me to feel that transfer over an hour or two before going to bed. I would just prefer not to have that feeling.

I would just suggest waiting until you are ready to close them for the night. Maybe it wouldn't bother anyone else (I can't even wear contacts because they bother my eyes so much), but that would be my suggestion.

That is all for now!  I will check back in a few days with a race day update and hopefully some new OOTD pics....have a great weekend everyone!!
