Grandma What Big Eyes You Have (Circle Lens Review)

With Otakon approaching, I thought that in the spirit of good and accurate cosplay I should have a go at circle lenses. I ordered mine from pinkyparadise. Disclaimer: Soak your circle lenses in contact solution for at least six-seven hours before putting them into your eyes. The solution the contacts are packaged with are only meant to preserve/store them. I made the careless error of trying them on after I opened the vile. My eyes burned like @##*%*%. I showed the little girl I was babysitting the contacts, so I could gauge her reaction. Her response: "You look like a baby." Which I'm sure she meant that in the most endearing way possible. Kids, gotta love their refreshing honesty... If you're looking for lenses that will give you a cartoonish/anime look than I would suggest the ones I bought: Ifairy Super Crystal Violet, EOS Candy Pink, but I wouldn't suggest them for casual ever day use.

Mountain Sound

Let me just take a moment to sweep the dust and cobwebs that have accumulated on my blog due to my untimely and long overdue leave of absence. If there was a contest for the best and most active bloggers, I would undoubtedly take last place. This year I fell ill to the plague that is junior year. In summary was life was overtaken by scantrons, SAT prep, English essay's, and the ungodly unit circle. If there's anything I learned this year it's that 1. Procrastination will be the death of me. I found myself scrolling through the depths of youtube instead of studying for exams and wanting to kick myself in the face because of it, entirely way too much. But alas, summer is finally here and for the next three months I can indulge myself in doing absolutely nothing and I can feel completely guilt free about it. I can't wait to return to school only to have people laugh and point out that my skin color remained the same shade as a bed sheet. The outside scares me. Actually, correction* being away from my computer scares me. In all seriousness, I actually have a pretty busy summer. Apart from my full-time nanny job... I'm going to be bustling around the east coast scrounging around for any college that will accept me, and journeying to Anime-conventions (no shame). I've decided that there's going to be no chronological flow in today's post, so I'm just going to jump into talking about my new circle lenses. I'll do a more concise and elaborate review later this week (don't hold me to that), but for now all I'm going to say is that the rumors are true. If you've ever had the aspiration of becoming a live anime character...
