Get lifted lashes at CORA Beauty + Spa

I'm one of those people who love to be a guinea pig and try something new. Beauty, food, styles, whatever – you can generally count me in. 

I had a mishap (by mishap I mean a gas grill literally blew up in my face) that cost me a bit of length in eyelashes a few weeks back. A grill, a warm fall evening and a Packers win were all involved and I still have flashes of it in my head. But I have to move on – I know this – and I've been slowly but surely trying to grow them back by religiously applying castor oil on my brows and lashes. Ladies, take note: the castor oil does work. 

But, when I got the opportunity to try a Lash Lift from CORA Beauty + Spa, I literally jumped at the chance. When I learned I could get my lashes lifted – and tinted – without getting extensions put on I was quite intrigued. 

The Lash Lift is a new take on the old-fashioned lash perm and CORA – which is the name of the business and the owner, Cora Floyd – is one of the first spas in the state to offer them. The traditional lash perm method required your natural lashes to be wrapped around a sponge rod which can actually make lashes look short with inconsistent curls. Lash Lift is different. 

Pre-lift. 

The lift starts with a protective pad to cover the under-eye area and hold down the bottom lashes. Next, curved silicone pads are glued to the eyelid and the top lashes are lifted and glued to the bump on the pad. This process takes a few minutes to ensure each lash stays put. They felt a little tight but not uncomfortable. Cora then also applied a soothing mask to moisturize my face during the process.

Once the lashes are lifted and glued to the pad, Cora applied the perm solution to the roots of the lashes. I joked it smelled of the good ole days – the perm. My eyes stung a little bit but I felt that was to be expected. Luckily it’s only 10 minutes for this portion and while the perm solution smells terrible – but somehow oddly comforting to…

Nothing can replace "Sex and the City," but "Divorce" could be awesome

I must have been living under a rock the past few weeks because I missed the news that Sarah Jessica Parker is returning to her HBO roots for a new half-hour comedy series called "Divorce." 

No, nothing can ever replace "Sex and the City." Ever. 

It was one of those shows that people watched faithfully – and can still watch episodes of over and over.

"Sex and the City" star Parker will play Frances, a "woman who suddenly begins to reassess her life and her marriage, and finds that making a clean break and a fresh start is harder than she thought," according to HBO. Actor Thomas Haden Church ("Wings," "Sideways") will play her husband Robert, while Molly Shannon and Talia Balsam will appear as Frances’ dear old pals. 

At first glance, Parker seems to be offering a Carrie-Bradshaw-esque look on the new show, so one can only wonder how this new series will develop from her previous character. 

The new show is currently filming in New York – aka "Sex and the City" land – and will be premiering next year in either summer or fall. Hey, it's not exactly a SATC sequel, but SJP + HBO + comedy series? I may just have to resubscribe to HBO – or maybe you have an HBO GO sign-in for me? Hit me up!
