So other than being obsessed with getting my teeth whiter (hello Ross from friends), one thing I’ve always wanted is longer lashes. I love the femininity they give. I wasn’t blessed in the lash department.

I’ve tried everything Latisse, Lil’ Lash, and even had eyelash extensions which I loved but way too much maintenance for a mom of five. I finally found an eyelash growing serum that I love and it’s 1/3 of price of Latisse – Grandelash .

You have to use it religiously for two months before you start seeing results but after two months my friends started noticed and even asked if I had my lashes done (woo-hoo).

Lately I noticed that I’ve been looking extra tired with dark circles under my eyes. Kind of like when you put on eyeshadow and some of the excess falls on your upper cheekbone making a dark layer. I know I am getting older but I didn’t know it would happen overnight.

Last week, my little girls and I were fooling around with their play makeup in my bathroom and one of them flipped my face mirror to the microscopic side – you know the one that shows every pore on your face. I leaned in and was shocked to see that not only were my lashes growing longer but I had been growing a forest of dark hairs underneath my eyes.

No dark circles just a second set of lush lashes…on my cheekbones. And I mean long enough that I had to pluck all of them out. Oo0-wee that hurt. But BAM dark circles gone. I’m not sponsored by Grandelash or anything – just letting you know the good stuff when I find it.

Just beware if you do use it to keep it on your eyes and don’t use too much so it leaks down to your cheekbones. Ha. Or I’ve found if I put on eye cream first it creates a barrier so it doesn’t find its way in.Mini Caramel Apple Cheesecakes - so easy and individually portioned!
What does this have to do with Mini Caramel Apple Cheesecakes? Absolutely nothing. Here’s what I love about this recipe. They’re so easy. They’re not intimidating like a whole cheesecake is (no cracking).

You can top these Mini Caramel Apple Cheesecakes with any fruit but I love these cinnamon apples and caramel. Totally portable and individually sized for one.
Some recipes are just no fuss and this is one of them.

As with most cheesecakes these are almost better the next day after they have chilled. Perfect for making ahead.
