What is Salty Lashes?

Oh hi! If you’ve been here since my first post, Our Last First Date, thank you. If you are new here, welcome.

So what does Salty Lashes mean?

On mine and Jeff’s second date we were discussing living in California. Jeff told me one of his favorite things about being in the ocean is having salt stuck to his lashes after. It was a simple conversation. Being just our second date I was still holding on to every word he said;). A few months later while trying to come up with a site name, our previous conversation stuck out at me and there you go, Salty Lashes was born.

I’m excited to provide a space filled with fashion, beauty, fitness, home design…for the whole family! With my background as a aesthetician and personal trainer,  plus the past 6 years in the fashion industry and Jeff’s home design business, we have a lot of topics to cover. We can’t wait to share personal stories, tips, ideas, recipes, and a glimpse into our life raising four girls, ages 8 months – 14 years old. I think we’re most excited to invite you to our table in our new YouTube series, You CAN Sit with Us.

Salty Lashes is a site I’ve wanted to create for a few years now.

Starting fresh on a new site after leaving LunchPails and Lipstick felt like a bold move and I kind of love that! Many have asked what made me leave. It’s simple, after working on L&L for the last 6 years I was ready to create something new, this time centered around the family. So much has changed since I started L&L. I was a single mom with three girls. Now I’m remarried with a new baby living in a new city. I’m renovating a home and trying to navigate life of teenagers mixed in with a newborn.

I can’t tell you how grateful I am for the support I’ve received since being here full time on Salty Lashes. Thank you for your kindness and words of encouragement.

This community is everything to me. I love to create content YOU want to see! Send me your questions, tell us what you want to see more of. Thanks for being here. I appreciate you.

    I love this!! I’m so happy you have your own site now. I was following lunchpails and lipstick mainly because of you because I find you so relatable! When I realized you weren’t posting anymore, I stopped reading and following and watched for updates on salty lashes. I love salty lashes and your new you tube series. You guys are the cutest.

    So glad you branched out on your own and started salty lashes. I was so sad when I saw less and less of your posts on L&L- I don’t even remember how I stumbled on the site in the first place but yours were the ones I looked forward to- so I love that you’re doing your own thing.

    Hi Lisa! I love your posts! You are so real and down to earth. I was wondering if you and Jeff have any marriage advice? I love being married to best friend but sometimes it feels like this is the hardest thing I have ever freaking done or will do. I love him to pieces though!
