LASHLOVE: The Ultimate NYC Lash Spa

I’ve been wearing eyelash extensions on/off for about 3 years now and I seriously love them. I wake up every day feeling totally flawless because the lash extensions make all the difference. When I lived in New York, I always went to Affina on Fulton St to get my lashes done. Affina was awesome because they created the most voluminous lashes and also did bottom eyelash extensions, which was something unheard of to me until I saw it on their menu.

Unfortunately when I moved to Miami I had to kiss my bottom lash extensions goodbye because I can’t find a single place in Miami that can 1) give me lash satisfaction like the lash masterpieces I got at Affina, but 2) I can not find a place in Miami that does bottom lash extensions.

Here is a sample of what eyelash extensions on the top and bottom look like:

As you may know, I spent Christmas in New York and I had to take advantage of the trip so I called Affina to make an appointment. The sweet receptionist let me know that they opened up a lash spa called LashLove on Church St with more flexible hours. They accommodated my busy holiday schedule and I got an appointment at their new lash-only location.

I don’t usually blog about my services but from the minute I walked in I knew I had to share this place with any of you lucky ladies that may live in NYC or frequent the area. They are a full-service lash salon where you can make your lash dreams come true. They have a menu with all of the different types of length, curl, and material to choose from. The pricing is super reasonable as well.

I just got my lashes done today so I can’t comment on how long they last, but when I was going to Affina while I lived in New York, I went in for a refill once every 3-4 weeks, which is longer than usual- I have to get my Miami lashes refilled about every 2 weeks.

The service is amazing and the lash technician who worked on my lashes today was super careful and articulate. I am sensitive to the lash glue, but I didn’t feel a thing! If you are looking for a great place to get eyelash extensions in New York, this is your spot! Thank me later 🙂

My full set from Affina on Fulton in NYC!

For special occasions and beauty looks, I always stack my LisaLASHES from The LadyCode Shop on top of my extensions for an extra glam boost. Gemini and Lit are the perfect lashes for stacking on top of other strip lashes or extensions!

This post is not sponsored by Affina or Lash Love and I paid full price for all of my services.




I forgot I ordered a KKW Beauty Ultralight Beam set until I got a shipping notification. Why? Because I ordered this on December FIRST. If I remembered, I would have made a scene with customer service because 2 weeks to ship a product from the day you order it is so 2001.

Like most beauty products these days, the mega influencers get a fancy package with every shade of the new product in some super fancy packaging. KKW Beauty wasn’t an exception with her Ultralight beams:

Based on the photos above of these influencers with their top notch packaging, I had a little bit of hope that KKW Beauty had upgraded her potato-chip-bag packaging with a nice box that makes you happy to spend $32 ($40.95 with shipping) for the small cosmetic set.

Nope. This is what we get as paying customers:

Moving on from the packaging let’s take another moment to recognize that shipping is $8.95. For $8.95, I would LOVE to see my package arrive in 3-5 business days, not 2 weeks.

The actual product itself is actually very glamorous. The gloss is gorgeous and stays in place. It’s so pretty applied over any lipstick.

The highlighter was really nice, but the packaging on it is awful. It’s a loose pigment but I have no where to put the pigment on my brush. You can see exactly what I mean in the video below:

Overall, I don’t recommend the product because I think you can find drugstore alternatives for much less than $40.95. It would be gorgeous for $15 or even $25, but definitely not worth the wait.


What do you think about the KKW Beauty Ultralight beams?




There’s been a lot of vlogs on LadyCode lately because I’ve constantly been on the go, and rather that ghosting off LadyCode while I’m away traveling, I thought I would take you with me so we can stay in touch! I hope the vlogs are as enjoyable as my beauty videos!

Today I created a frosty/warm look that I decided to name SLAY BELLES (get it? lol).

Here is the full easy holiday makeup tutorial:

I’m also loving the Givenchy beauty Matissime foundation. I’m thinking about doing a top 10 foundation video because I had to hunt to find foundations that were the right fit for me! Let me know if I should do it 🙂

There’s also still time to enter my holiday giveaway! Don’t miss out on these amazing prizes!

Goldiluxe Hair Extensions Review | Unboxing | Try On

Hair extensions are one of the things I can’t live without. After losing a TON of my hair to damage from going blonde (and then dying it back), hair extensions give me the length and density I want, along with a side of CONFIDENCE!

Goldiluxe hair extensions is a new line of extensions and they are unique because they have a tape style weft, which makes them lay flat at the roots for a natural attachment.

Watch the hair extension review video below for the full review:

Goldiluxe was generous enough to provide a discount code for us girls in LadyCode! The code is: LADYCODE for $10 off your purchase! You can learn more about Goldiluxe extenions here:

I hope you’re enjoying your Saturday!

JAPAN Fashion & Makeup Haul!! Harajuku, Shibuya, Tokyo, Osaka & More!!

Last week, I was in Japan and if there is one thing for a girl to do in Japan, its SHOP! My little sister lives in Tokyo and she took me to so many amazing stores! Since I got a ton of cute stuff, I decided to share my finds with you in the haul video below!

I love love love this hoodie dress from Rasvoa! It’s definitely my favorite thing to wear right now. 

My hairstyle for the video was inspired by Japan, and I recreated it with my own twist! Here is the full tutorial:

LIFE UPDATE: From Japan we went straight to LA for a day and then stopped in Las Vegas for Miss Universe for less than 24 hours! One of my jobs is hosting for PageantLIVE and I had so much fun interviewing the VIP’s in the pageant world. Let me know if you want to see a Miss Universe VLOG!  I’m still struggling with jet lag and I’m barely keeping up! It’s literally been one thing after another because I spent the weekend in Atlanta shooting for Crowned Pageantry Magazine. This weekend, I’ll be going to Daytona Beach to host VivaLuxe’s Hooked on Fashion show and I’m super excited because I’ll be showing my Vizcaya Swimwear designs too! I hope to see some of my LadyCode sisters in Daytona 🙂

I hope you had an amazing weekend! Let me know what you think of my haul in the comments below!
