Adieu, adieu, to you and you and you!

I am off to the city of lights! I am so excited! I can't speak a word of French, Spanish is my forte. I will be gone for a few days, and then get right back to posting! I will also finally visit my blog's namesake, Versailles!

The Mascara Diaries: Mermaid Edition

The life of a mermaid has always been a fantasy of mine. Ever since seeing Disney's "The Little Mermaid" at a very young age, I had wanted to be like one of those sirens of the sea, those magical, mythical creatures that fill page after page of storybooks and have intrigued land-lovers for centuries. Even though half of their body was quite, ahem, gross and slimy, they had a bewitching beauty that captured the hearts of sailors. Maybe it was their glowing skin, their twisted ropes of hair that was strategically placed, such as Daryl Hannah in "Splash," or their big, bright eyes that seemed to hold the intensity of the sea itself within their gaze.

If the beach beauties of the real world are supposed to emulate the supernatural allure of the mermaid, than we need to have that flawless, waterproof mascara to accent that smoldering gaze. My current fixation is the Diorshow Waterproof Mascara, the pool-approved version of a cult obsession. Not only is this anti-H2O, but also it gives the same lush, full look as its original counterpart. There is no compromise here, only long, curly, thick lashes that demand attention, whether you are watching a tragically sad movie or flexing your imaginary fins on a sandy beach. Ariel would be so proud.
