Plume Lash and Brow Serum Review

Plume Lash + Brow Enhancing Serum review by Thyme is Honey

I kinda can’t believe the things we’ll do for long, lush lashes. Gigantic falsies. Check. Extensions that take an hour per month to apply. Check. Lashes made of animal fur. Sure. I want long, thick lashes but man I am kind of picky about how I get them! I found myself looking for natural lash serums and discovered Plume Lash + Brow Enhancing Serum through Instagram!

I’d had success with lash serums in the past,  but this time I wanted to be more aware of the ingredients. Finding a lash serum that was both effective and had a clean ingredient list wasn’t easy, but Plume fit the bill. This serum is made with 100% natural ingredients (contains no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, hormones/prostaglandins, artificial fragrances, artificial dyes, gluten, or toxic ingredients of any kind) and can be purchased online, with no doctor visit required.

I started putting it on my lashes and on a bare spot in my brows every night while we were traveling in Thailand, and by the time we got home 4 weeks later there was a noticeable difference! I continued using it and when the bottle ran out I moved on to a second bottle.

I love the length it has added to my lashes and have been amazed at how it encouraged entirely NEW growth in my brows (which helped prepare them for microblading). If you’re looking for a lash + brow serum that has healthy, natural ingredients check out Plume Lash + Brow Enhancing Serum!

Things to do in Pai, Thailand

Things to do in Pai Thailand - why you shouldn't miss this mountain town located in Northern Thailand | Thyme is Honey

I think my post about our One Month Trip to Northern and Southern Thailand will go down as my longest blog post ever. Thailand was such a beautiful country, and we crammed so many things into 4 weeks that it was hard to talk about it all in one blog post without getting totally overwhelmed. I could have (and maybe should have) done a separate post for each city! I’m not going to do that, but I do want to dedicate a separate post to our favorite part of the trip: the two weeks we spent in Pai, Thailand.

Pai is a small city (population 2,200) located in the mountains of Northern Thailand near the border with Myanmar. We kind of stumbled across it while trying to find places to visit north of Chiang Mai. The internet lauded it as a “backpacker’s paradise” and although we didn’t find a ton of information about it, what we did find was enough for us to work it into our itinerary and book 6 nights there. We figured if Pai itself wasn’t what we expected, we could spend our time doing day trips or maybe book a long overnight hiking trip in the mountains or even duck over to Myanmar for a day or two.

But Pai didn’t disappoint! Pai was the absolute best. Within an hour of arriving I was already begging my husband to let us extend our stay in Pai, staying for 11 nights instead of 6. Fortunately our Airbnb was available and they let us extend our stay. We had an absolutely magical two weeks in Pai, had some pretty serious conversations about relocating there (I wouldn’t say we’ve entirely given up on the idea), and can’t wait to get back!

Visualize an Incredible Day

Take Time to Visualize an Incredible Day | free printable file from Thyme is Honey

Lately I’ve been starting my mornings with the HEALERS podcast from Beauty Bets. She has one of the best “podcast voices” I’ve heard (I could probably listen to her discuss socks) but I also love her podcast because she dives into topics you probably aren’t thinking or talking about. Last week I listed to one about colonics. I’ve listened to one about her favorite psychic medium. There’s a great one about astrology. Definitely not my usual scene.

But spending an hour each day listening to these woo-woo topics on life and love has opened me up a bit to the potential benefits of living a life that is more intentional and more focused on the type of energy you are putting out into the universe. Does the energy we put out come back to us? Does it influence our lives? The book, The Secret (which I just started this weekend), would argue that indeed, what we are putting out there matters.

And so with that I say: take a moment this morning to visualize an incredible day. Take a moment to think about what you want to materialize over the next 24 hours. Think happy thoughts, my friends, and if you need a constant reminder for this practice you can get this print to hang in your home or office.

The Weekly Water Tracker

Weekly Water Tracker | a prinable design by Thyme is Honey

Anyone who’s been around here for a hot second knows that I’m a firm believer in the power of hydration. I’ve been consuming at least 100 ounces a day for the past 6 years and I will gladly talk your ear off about how much it changed my life.

Although I regularly use my Daily Page Notepad to track my own hydration, I loved a request I got recently from a reader to design a 1-page Weekly Water Tracker that she could keep on her fridge! After letting her test it out for a week, we made some minor adjustments and here is the final product!

The Weekly Water Tracker by Thyme is Honey Puchase Box

I’ve put one on our fridge, as well, and I really love having a convenient place to track water each day, and then see an overview at the end of the week. When you purchase the digital file ($4) you’ll receive two pdf files that you are free to print as often as you wish. One is for a standard 8.5 x 11″ design, the other prints two per page (5.5 x 8.5″). You can, of course, just print one out each week and then store or dispose of it when you’re done tracking. However, I opted to enclose mine inside of a 3M Self-Sealing Laminate Pouch (available via Amazon) and then hung a wet erase marker next to it. At the end of the week it wiped clean and I was ready for another week of hydration! If you give this design a try I’d love to see how you’re using it! Share it with my on Instagram by taggin @Thyme_is_Honey! Below is a peek at my final product (complete with cute photos of Walter) and here are the steps I followed to create it:

  1. Purchase the Weekly Hydration Tracker and a package of the 3M Self-Sealing Laminate Pouches.
  2. From your Etsy Account or the order confirmation email, download the pdf, open and print.
  3. Place the page inside of the 3M Self-Sealing Laminate Pouch and seal, then trim away the excess.
  4. Hang on your fridge along with a dry erase marker and start hydrating!
