Every Thursday Rachael Robbins brings you the best DD’s!!

There are a few staples I need in our life: a great pair of pumps, a pearl necklace, designer evening bag, signature scent, diamond studs (I’m still waiting on these!), the perfect-fit jeans, white tank or t-shirt, movie star shades, and of course a little black dress!! OH! But let’s not forget, a husband to pay for all this and a boyfriend to drool over the way I look in it! If all these components are in order, then I am ready for any type of event! Dinner party, cocktail party, reunion, hot date (boyfriend), romantic evening (husband)!!

And to compliment my humble list of “staples”, my tan needs to be sunset-worthy, my hair the prefect shade of blonde, toes and nails polished and buffed and my make-up done to a “T”!! And no make-up application would be complete without LASHES!!! OK, I totally understand that not everyone is the lash master I am. And for you lash-challenged girls out there I’ve found the solution!!

Ardel (the amazing company that outfits me in my single lashes) has come out with a line of false lashes called Little Black Dress! For $6.50 you get two sets of accent lashes, one with glitter, one without, lash glue and even a pair of teeny tiny tweezers!! The packaging is adorable and the name of each style even cuter. You can buy: Cocktail Party, Hot Date, Reunion, and Romantic!

These lashes are small enough to look natural, but big enough to give your own lashes an added boost! They are so easy to apply: don’t forget to blow on the glue for a few seconds after you apply it to the lash, remember the longest part of the lash goes at the outside corner of your eye, NEVER curl your lashes before applying the false one. And BLEND BLEND BLEND with mascara!!

Ladies, any lash tricks you’d care to share!
