The extended version.

Filed under: Uncategorized — blindcopy @ 12:32 am

I wish I had more to blog about these days, especially now that the gorgeous and creative Sabine from Psynopsis has given me the ‘I ♥ Your Blog’ award. Please bear with me – I will definitely extend or forward the award, all I need is time. 🙂 (Oh, by the way: Sabine and nine other fellow bloggers are working on a really interesting project. Can’t wait for ‘Take 10’ to start! I’m really curious to see the first result. Check the link! Isn’t that a brilliant idea?)

The reason for my current blog absence is – sad but true – work. It’s not that my job didn’t leave enough time for other activities, but it’s very demanding at the moment and sucks out all my energy, nerves and patience. When I’m back home I feel really empty, and even reading my favourite blogs becomes a difficult and exhausting thing to do sometimes. But this is going to change soon, latest when Ramadan (yip, I’m still living in a Muslim country) starts and the life in this city slows down.

So for now my life is rather limited to working, working out, entertaining the cats (while Alex is travelling), and going to beauty salons where I can have myself pampered – and where I don’t need to do anything. 🙂 So, as promised earlier – here comes the result of my latest treatment: lash extensions at Sisters Beauty Salon in Dubai Mall.

The effect is amazing. It’s not that I didn’t have nice long lashes, but I inherited the Japanese ones, which are extremely straight and not that prominent. It’s unbelievable what a difference those extensions make, while still looking very natural. They say that the extensions would last up to three months (with a little maintenance) before the single fake lashes fall off completely. And don’t laugh about me – this is Dubai, everything here is a little fake. 🙂 By the way: You can’t imagine how difficult it is to take a picture of your eyes by yourself.


  1. Woah, they look fantastic!!
    I have very short eyelashes, i would seriously consider getting extensions if i thought they would last a few weeks, let me know how you get on hon!

  3. Kazuko, your lash extensions are looking fantastic! I’m sorry to hear you are so over-burdened with work. I’m quite the opposite right now – everything has slowed down considerably, leaving me lots of time for my creative (and blogging) pursuits. I fear this will change when summer comes to an end, but I’m not thinkingo of that now.
    I always enjoy your posts and thank you so much for your kind words and mentioning our project. 10 very different styles… It will be interesting! xxx
