ISN’T IT FUNNY HOW LIFE WORKS?
Four and a half years ago I started losing my hair having spotted a small bald patch on my scalp. Fast forward 10 days and I was completely bald. I had no idea what was happening to me, but contrary to my appalling appearance, I felt absolutely fine within myself. I was healthy (having lost 226lbs) and was in the best place I had ever been in my entire life. Yet here I was, a 30 year old woman who had gone from having an amazing head of hair to having none anywhere on my body! (There is a silver lining to that – wink wink )
Anyway, as soon as I had lost all my hair, my lovely boyfriend bought me a really fancy human hair wig and from there on out I immersed myself in my love and obsession for makeup. Quite ironic real isn’t it? 🙂 At the time I was in complete denial, I had always thought my hair would grow back and that this was just a ‘blip’.I assumed that as quickly as it fell out, it would come back! But nope, that didn’t happen! It turns out that life decided that having hair would not be for me and this journey led me exactly where I was meant to be.
I’m writing this whilst sitting in my home office on a lovely Sunday afternoon and I can’t help but think how very lucky I am. I have created a brand that I hope will empower you. My hope for you is that, no matter what it is you are going through, what life has decided to throw at you, there is a silver lining. There is always sunshine after the storm! No matter how severe that storm is…everything WILL be just fine!
DEAD PRETTY offers faux mink eyelashes of the highest quality which stemmed from my NEED to have amazing, comfortable, lightweight eyelashes that I could wear everyday – after all I don’t have any of my own! I’ve been wearing falsies for a long long time (way before I lost my hair) but having tried hundreds if not thousands over the last few years, none were perfect for me.
Sooooo, my only option was to get creative and design my own an get them manufactured, not thinking it would lead me to this very place that I could share them with you! They WORKED, they REALLY WORKED! I’m happy with the end product and so so proud of them, they are perfect for ANYONE, whether you have lashes or not. They pack a visual punch too, which makes all the difference to any makeup look (be it full glam or simply no makeup!).
I really hope you love them, if you do…SPREAD THE WORD, tag us on Instagram or Twitter by using #deadprettylashes so I can see your beautiful creations!
We may not always know where we are going in life, but if you stop and take it all in, you will have clear directions on where you need to go. Losing my hair has led me here, and of that I am extremely grateful! This is just the beginning….
