I'm so happy that this week is over! It just means one less week between me and my trip! I'm working hard at school and working more hours at my job, so I've been putting in my last efforts!
I'm happy to say that after a few weeks of being on a weight plateau, I've kicked it to the curb! Today I finally broke it! So I feel even more happy about the days to come and not as depressed anymore.
To help lift my spirits, I've been shopping a lot. Not too crazy, but more than usual! Since I'm so low on funds, I've been really picky about what I buy. Sometimes I just buy things because they are cute but end up never even wearing them in the end!
I really need to stop doing that... (笑)
In my last entry I told all of you guys that I bought and recieved my Princess Mimi Sesame Gray lenses! I'm truly in love with these lenses! For being 15.00 mm, I'm really surprised that I don't look like an alien... I was really afraid of that, but these lenses are just SO lovely!
The lenses have a small black ring but the gray color inside is really nice. I don't know if you can tell from this picture (once again, horrible camera, ugh!) but there is a circular ring outside of the grey colored part that looks like a light brown but sand-ish color also. It's somewhat glittery and it really adds a nice style to the lenses!
I think if you have dark colored eyes, you'll be able to see it a lot better, but since I have light-colored eyes, it was barely visible.
My real eye color is a light green/light blue color with touches of gray in it, so these lenses actually made my eyes a little bit more green when I was under the light!
When I was outside (which stupid me, didn't take a photo of!), it turned to a more lighter blue... ! These lenses give you such cute and big dolly eyes, I really adore them!
I'm not used to the black ring being so small, but I actually like it! It gives more radiance to my natural eye color and compliments natural make-up!
I'm actually really surprised that my curls turned out okay! Like I've said in past entries, my hair is really rebellious, so it usually never holds curls.
Soooo what do I think of them...?
Enlargement: 5/5 - they are AWESOME! Not too big or anything, they are actually really nice!
Color: 3/5 - Only because they blend with my regular color, I don't see much difference from using them. If you have dark colored eyes, it will make a huge difference with your eyes, but with light-colored eyes, I don't see much difference!
Style: 4/5 - Very lovely style! I didn't like how small the black ring was since I'm used to large sized ones, but it's really nice with light makeup.
Comfort: 5+/5 - SUPER comfy! I could wear these for hours and hours. It was a bit hard to put them in at first since they are so large, but after the third try I finally got it!
Overall: 4/5 - I really like these because they show more of my eye color but I wish the black ring was larger. If I had dark colored eyes, I'd probably love them more but my eyes just blend with it, so I don't see a total change while wearing them. Compared to not wearing lenses, they are 100% better to wear than none!
I got mine from Pinky Paradise, but I'm sure you can find them at other online stores too!
I didn't used to like shopping.
When I was 65 pounds heavier, I hated shopping. I barely looked in mirrors because I was afraid of what I looked like and never took any initiative to try to be healthy or lose weight. I simply ignored the problem even though I lived with it everyday. I wanted to be smaller and healthy, but I didn't have the right kind of motivation to do it.
Being able to fit into sizes that I never could really makes me feel so happy.
I still have more weight to lose but I'm happy with what I've lost so far!
Anyway---on to what I've bought!
I've been in need of a smaller hair curler so I decided to give in and buy this Conair hair curler from Target ($9.99!). They also had the 'rod' curler that I've used before (althought from a different place) but I knew that I'd be able to get the curls I'd want if I went with this one, and plus it being $20 less also appealed to me!
My large sized hair curler is also from Conair, so I trust this brand a lot!
One of my favorite makeup brands is RIMMEL LONDON.
I really love their lipsticks and their mascara is awesome! I was in dire need of some white coloring eyeshadow since my Covergirl one decided to turn darker (I think I've used it too much or something), I decided to try Rimmel London's!
I'm hoping that it will be better this time because the last time I bought it, the makeup palette spilled everywhere inside of it... even though I didn't open it!
I also went back to Styles For Less and bought some cute tops!
(lol my MUCC + Gazette posters!)
I'm in dire need of pink in my wardrobe! It's my favorite color and yet I don't have any really good summer-type tops w/this color
I really love the kimono-top one. It's really light and is nice to my oddly shaped hips! The black top was just love at first sight, so I had to buy it! You know how you see some clothing items and just think "YES! I MUST HAVE IT!" kind of thing?! Well, that's what I felt like
I really like oversized flowly tops because then I can pair it up with anything!
The striped one is actually a cropped top so it's not that big (although the picture makes it look larger!). I wore the pink laced top in my last entry and love it so much!
Anyway, I'm glad you all liked my black extensions! I'm hoping to play around with them a little bit more and make it more 'my own'! I'll also be sure to try out the bangs with them--thanks for the lovely suggestion!
and oh my gosh, I'm almost at 100 followers!
thank you so much! i'm really surprised!
I hope you all have a great weekend and for those in Japan, enjoy Golden Week!
