Beautiful Lashes Without Extentions

Who knew magic came in 2 tubes!?

Or as I call it, unicorns and fairies, jumping over rainbows and sprinkling lash love inside each tube.

Probably the greatest invention for make up loving ladies like myself.  And if you’re not into make up *gasp*, just having beautiful lashes can truly make all the difference in your day (I bet you’ll get a few extra smiles from strangers you meet) as it frames your true beauty!  Even on my blah days, a coat of mascara and a nice lip gloss make me feel ready to take on the world.

Did you know, mascara originated to ward off evil spirits and ill-wishers around 4000 BC?  Egyptian men and women, lined their eyes with kohl and used the mascara to deepen their lashes as eyes were believed to be the windows to the soul.  Concealing them would ward off any evil spirits and bad energy.

Through Egypt’s influence, kohl usage persisted in the subsequent Babylonian, Greek and Roman empires. Following the fall of the Roman Empire, kohl fell into disuse on the European continent, where it had been considered solely a cosmetic; conversely, it continued to be widely used in the Middle East for religious purposes

Mascara became a beauty product in Victorian times, as these ladies were quite the beauty divas! Mixing ashes and elderberry, Victorian ladies created their own mascara concoctions.

Fast forward to 2012 – and Younique introduces their 3D Fiber Lash Mascara!

Now, understand, this is coming from me, a 45 year old Granny, that went through a breast cancer conundrum which changes everything in your body, including the lashes you once had as a blossoming teenager and young adult. Age, health, the environment, life style – call it whatever you’d like, but I had very scarce lashes, even with my expensive department store mascara (bummer).

It's hard being me without beautiful lashes!

It’s hard being me without beautiful lashes!


I had a friend, selling mascara in Hawaii.  Being the good, supportive friend I am, I supported her mascara business and bought one <inside praying, but not expecting any mascara miracle, because I’m a born skeptic>.  You see, we’re a family without lashes! Even my precious pet kid Mattie is lashless!  Seems to be our fate.

Let me fast, fast, forward …. 3D Fiber Lash Mascara by Younique arrives and I fall-in-LOVE!  What’s not to love about this product?

3 simple steps – Transplanting Gel / Natural Fibers / Transplanting Gel to help create the appearance of incredible thickness and volume to your existing lashes. Your lashes transform into something you have only dreamed of (even for us lash challenged folk)! The 3D Fiber Lashes are water resistant but easily wash off with warm water and your favourite facial cleanser or check out my DIY make-up remover.

You can't deny, one simple coat is a huge difference, imagine 3!

Ruby Watchco. 730 Queen St. East, Riverside/Leslieville

In a sea of somewhat mediocre and/or pricey eating establishments in Leslieville, Ruby Watchco proved to have a landslide advantage.

If you’re after a wonderful gastronomic experience, go directly to Ruby Watcho. Having heard the food was ‘good’ I wasn’t prepared for the treat we received – a four course meal for $49. Included in this gastronomic dream was a starter; a beautiful salad of living greens, buffalo mozzarella, eggplant and a dressing to die for, a main; tea brined chicken with tea & lemon gravy and sides that included sautéed red cabbage with bacon & hazelnuts, old-fashioned potato salad and charred broccoli with duck confit, followed by artisanal cheeses which melted in your mouth, and finished off with rhubarb and mixed berry crisp with cinnamon whip cream. Yum X 10.

Add a crazy couple of waiters, cocktails that burst on your tongue and finishing the meal with a perfect cup of coffee, then you have reached food nirvana.

In a sea of somewhat mediocre and/or pricey eating establishments in Leslieville, Ruby Watchco proved to have a landslide advantage. A set price which more than delivers in terms of taste &portions (doggie bags left us with several days of eating ahead of us) vs a la carte menus which can add up, beautiful cocktails/wine and the best coffee west of the Mercury, it was the best foodie experience I’ve had in many months.
Warning: The cocktails and wine will add up – so treat yourself gently in the alcohol department. Or go for an occasion and let your wallet loose. You won’t be disappointed.

McQueen’s Pub 993 Queen St East

Not filled with coasters and sponsored beer posters, it’s got more of clean, bright linear feel to it.

If anyone remembers Toast, located in the spot that McQueen’s now occupies, you won’t have a single memory of it visiting McQueen’s. Completely overhauled, McQueen’s brings a nice somewhat upmarket feel to what we know as a ‘pub’.  Not filled with coasters and sponsored beer posters, it’s got more of clean, bright linear feel to it. Almost like a dining room in someone’s house; exposed brick, nice dark wood tables and a long bar. There are TV screens (ugh) but to the sports oriented, who like a beer with their hockey/baseball, no one can argue. Luckily for us, the TVs were on, the sound off, filling the place with good tunes instead.

Unfortunately I can’t describe our food experience there with the same fervour as the decor.

My friend and I spied the ‘Caplansky’s’ smoked meat sandwich on their menu and immediately both of us ordered it. Our other companion, the nachos.

Dreaming of steamed corned beef on warm rye bread dressed up with a dill on the side, was…just a dream. Our sandwiches arrived on the ‘cold’ side, the bread definitely not fresh and yes, well, the dill was fine. And the slaw was delish. Our companion who ordered the small nachos, received a large one – all the more to share, except that after a few not very warm bites, we left it behind.

I’m never sure why new establishments don’t consider food, service and presentation equally as important as the vibe. I do.

While the service was okay, when we explained the sandwiches were not exactly hot, the waitress said she’d talk to the chef vs. replacing / warming up the meals.

You may not have the same experience we did, but go for the vibe, the drinks (although if you’re after a wide variety on tap you’ll be disappointed), and the hockey/sports games.
