✿ No 9 Sheer Pink Top ✿

I'm super happy about this new sheer sweater I purchased recently. It's so cute and comfortable and my favorite shade of light pink with black lettering.

I purchased it from H&M recently when I went shopping with my bf. 
Usually I'm pretty picky about clothing and will always find some sort of imperfection.

With this top it was love at first sight!! 

The only thing I don't like about it is how delicate it is. 
My puppy's claws have already marred it a bit :'[ It's okay, Wanpo, it's okay.

Speaking of Wanpo!! Here he is :D 

Super shy, I know hahaha. He's quite bashful when it comes to taking pictures XD In this photo, he is 1 and 1/2 years old. I can't believe I brought him home when he was about 7 weeks old!! His birthday is June 24, 2012. So his second birthday will be coming up several months!! They grow so fast...

♡ EOS Blytheye Blue Lenses from MapleLens! [Review] [Sponsored] ♡

Hi lovelies, today I'm going to do a review on how well the EOS Blytheye Blue lenses show up on  brown eyes. I know many girls and guys out there shop around for colored lenses and worry about them not being very noticeable. Perhaps it's for a cosplay costume or maybe it's just for an everyday look.

These lenses were kindly sent to me from Maple Lens.

The diameter of these lenses are 14.00 mm and water content is 38%. They last up to a year if you take good care of them, but I like to change my lenses once they start to feel unfresh? Haha, so I change mine every several months. It also will depend on how often you plan on wearing them. Of course, more wear, more tear.

The packaging that MapleLens sends their lenses in are the cutest!!!
It's a ring box!! It's the perfect size for the two contact lens containers though!!

Aren't they adorable? I love the cute cute pink floral packaging.

EOS Blytheye Blue Lens

Every single pair of lens you purchase comes with a free contact lens container.

 These lenses are very very bright blue. I don't really know when I'd wear them since I don't really fancy bright bold colors and love more natural colors. But maybe if I cosplay in the upcoming anime convention I will use them ^___^

 They show up really well when compared to other brands in which the color gets overwhelmed by the brown of our eyes. For those who want a dramatic, shocking look, these lenses are great. They come in a variety of colors too!

☁︎ EOS (Evolution of Smooth) Lip Balms [Review] ☁︎

Happy February my Lovely Bunnies ❉

Today I'm doing a review on the EOS lip balms that have already been out since forever, but I never really got into them until recently. 

I was at Costco with hubby and we were buying groceries and house-necessities when I passed by a display of the 5-pack EOS lip balms. I glanced at them and said to him, "Hubby, I remember using this a few years ago and I really didn't think they were all that." He picked it up and that's when I saw something I never realized before: 100% Natural, 95% Organic

It's a little dangerous to assume that just because it's 95% Organic, that it must be a good product. But I purchased them because I wanted to give them another try. I already have a go-to favorite for lip balms (Philosophy Pink Almond Candy Lip Balm) but the price for this was too good to pass up (and I was curious about the whole natural and organic thing).

The front of the packaging says: "lip balm with shea butter and jojoba oil for happy, moist, super-smooth lips. 100% natural 95% organic"

The back of the packaging says: "Can a lip balm make you smile? We think so. That's why we invented this one. EOS lip balm is 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil, EOS keeps your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth.

Directions: Twist off top. Pucker up. Smooth on. Smile." 

Then it proceeds to list the ingredients of each flavor. 

The description on the back is so well-written >//3//< It makes the product seem so amazing!! And the packaging was really one of a kind and so cute! I love the colors they chose for them! They remind me of Easter Eggs, hehe.

The 5 pack comes with Passion Fruit (lavender), Sweet Mint (baby blue), Strawberry Sorbet (pink), Summer Fruit (red), and Honeysuckle Honeydew (green). I've tried the Strawberry Sorbet in the past and I didn't recall it being all that effective (because my lips are VERY hard to deal with, especially in winter).

Definitely looks like colorful easter eggs here :]

However, one really good thing about these lippies are that the scents are out of this world!!
When I opened them up for these two shots, I was hit by so many sweet and yummy smells!!~
Great for you ladies & gentlemen who love delicious smelling lip balms ^////^

I've only tried the Strawberry one.. but I'm excited to try the rest :D

I used the sweet mint one and I'm going to give the EOS lip balms 3.75/5 ☆ because although I love the smell, it just isn't able to compare to the Philosophy Pink Almond Candy. My philosophy lippie glides on so smoothly and is VERY moisturizing and long lasting while also giving a soft pink sheen (and I actually like the sweet scent more as well). The EOS balm, while also pretty moisturizing, just isn't able to compare. I find myself having to reapply a lot more throughout the day. Also, the EOS leaves your lips with a very light feeling (as if there's not really much product on your lips) while the Philosophy has a more glossy feeling. That's really up to your own preference. 

However, you have to look at the prices. I got all 5 of the EOS for a little under $15 while the Philosophy Pink Almond Candy lippie cost over $12. 

Have you used the EOS balms or Philosophy Pink Almond Candy? What do you think about them? ^_^
