Mini hiatus plus seven days of cute

Hello lovelies
I know I haven't blogged in a while which is why I'm making a more official post about it. I'm going on hiatus for a month or two. In the past two weeks I've been swamped with school stuff and more importantly my whole family is moving out in two weeks - leaving me that same amount of time to move out and find a more stable job. It's pretty overwhelming; especially trying to juggle study and packing and job hunting. So I'm taking a break, sitting back and focusing on what's most important right now and worry about how cute I look, new lolita outfits and what's going on over at tumblr are taking a much needed backseat.
This also extends to my project/ brand Kawaii Lime designs. I've even had to put that on hold as the making time means I'm not sure what my address will be when they need to ship it @_@ I am focusing on getting patterns and such made but it's not getting as much time devoted to it as needed. The brand itself was a sort of a rush launch, which I've learnt from so I'll most likely 'release' it again when I've had time to properly turn it into something i'm more happy with as well as an official sample to try and secure more orders (I'm also thinking of creating a matching jewellery line and even leggings/tight) but it's up in the air until everything sorted.
As a sort of final 'get it out of my system' I've been dressing in lots of cute pastels and accessories whenever I can so here's a few pictures.
day 1
 The tricky thing regarding day 2 is I dressed up all in pastel purple but my phone died. I then later attended a dress up party ( I went as Belle from beauty and the beast) and ended up not being concious for most of day 3...which brings us to)

Day 4
 I konw it doesn't seem like much but it feels very different for me, and I've still got day 5,6 and 7 to get through which should be fun. My new dresses sugar fairy cake and pink meringue tartan pleated jsk, which I must say is super adorable! halter neck with a dropped skirt fits my figure a lot better so I'm glad I got it, it also isn't as OTT as sugar cake so i might get more wear out of it. I hope.

Until next time!

Pinky Paradise Circle lense review: Twilight blue, dolly brown & fairy violet

Hello lovelies!

Today I'm going to review the circle lenses I ordered a few weeks ago. As always I encourage people to always see their optometrist before getting lenses (especially those who have never done so before) and always, ALWAYS remove/dispose of lenses that make your eyes itch, irritable, red or uncomfortable after more than 2 hours use. Keep 'em clean, don't go past expiry dates and remember to store them properly. Disclaimer out the way, let's look at the purchase!

EOS fairy violet
Vassen dolly plus Brown
Princess Pinky twilight blue
Dolly wink lashes
Multipurpose solution (if you've never bought lenses before I suggest getting this)

 Just to give you all idea of what we're staring with, these are my natural eyes.
Dark, dark brown!
I think I had a mix up here because I thought I was buying the Vassen cloud 9 violet series, but in a case of 'forgetting what I ordered' this was not so. I bought these on a whim as I l-o-v-e anime-ish eye colours like violet and strawberry pink and I wanted something that really stood out. Thankfully, despite my mix up, these do just that!  

14.5mm, you can see the colour stands out & enlarges

The lenses themselves are comfortable, after initial few minutes of that queer 'there's something in my eye' feeling. Most noticable in natural light however still noticable indoors, just darker in colour. You can see the image below for an idea of what these look like in a natural light source. They're EOS, an already well known and reliable brand, so there wasn't much to say. Although these lenses do not have a review on Pinky paradise the stock images do them justice in a natural light source. These images do not portray quiet how vibrant these lenses are in reality. I would suggest them for an anime or sweet doll look as the vibrancy may stand out too much with just a day to day wear, unless you like people always wow'ing at your eyes.

The pattern is smooth and surprisingly natural looking and fully covers the iris while leaving the pupil fully revealed.

Final thoughts: Vibrant, EOS = reliable, Not for everyday wear, comfortable
Natural lighting.

Vassen dolly plus Brown
When I bought these I was hoping for an enlarged (14.5mm) chocolate brown to lighten my eyes while still looking more natural, something to wear around on the days I'm sick of glasses but dont' want bright blue or purple. The stock images for this aren't quiet true to colour, with mine appearing more orange-brown than true chocolate brown. I was also a little unsure going with a brand other than well known medical ones such as GEO and EOS. After resolving that I wouldn't be to upset if I wasted the cash if they were too much of a risk (throw away $30 lenses or risk eye damage..yeah no brainer there) I went ahead. Unfortunately I only got the one shot of me wearing them, sorry!

These lenses were actually easier and more comfortable to put in than the EOS ones. You can see that the further away stock image appears a little more correct than the close up but overall different. Not that there's anything WRONG with what I got they're i said, more orange; it's more obvious face to face as well. However, despite the colour difference and being only 14.5mm they sure do look larger than life. I wore them for over 8 hours and had no issues with them, I'll be considering Vassen lenses from now on along with GEO and EOS.
Final thoughts: Comfortable, naturally unnatural, enlarging, subtle yet has pazow!

Princess pinky twilight blue
I was sold on these lenses when I saw the colour and I HAD. TO. HAVE. THEM. They're without a doubt my favourite lenses. The colour is amazing and they give my face a whole new look, I know that sounds weird but as someone who's had dark brown eyes all her life having suddenly bright blue eye is like looking at a whole new person, especially when I'm wearing a blonde or pink wig.  The comfort level leaves a bit to be desired,they take longer than normal to settle and also moved around a lot at first which made me super nervous. Leaves my eyes feeling dry after long wear, would suggest for more than 8-10 hours. Always make sure to give eyes a rest for the following 24 hours and use aeye drops if required.

14.5mm, indoor lighting
The stock image, on my screen anyways, made these seem more pale than they are but as you can tell, they're bright sky blue. There's a lot of reviews up on the website including more pictures from others including those with a lighter hue to their eyes. Not for everyday use, way too obvious and flashy but great for photoshoots and special meets. I've never heard of this brand before and unlike Vassen it is not available anywhere else so I was highly weary of it. I would not buy from this brand again unless, once again, they came up with a truly spectacular design. The pattern is sort of pixelated.
Final thoughts: Super bright, take cautionary measures, not for everyday use.

And that covers this review! I hope it helped a few of you, 'scuse my derp faces in most of the photos! I love wearing contact lenses, even if I have to wear glasses. I encourage anyone interested in wearing them to do some extensive research and be aware of the care involved.

Quick GET post

Hello lovelies!

I know a lot of people are never really interested in GET posts but I'm super happy with this one and want to show off, haha!

Yes sparkles are needed! I've loved this skirt since it first came out so I was super happy to see it on the comms, and now I own it, mwahaha!  It's longer than I imagined, but I'm also still waiting on the shirt I bought to go with it outfit cord yet!

There was a GO for pinky paradise so I bought three new lenses as well as some dollywink eyelashes and some lense cleaner, but who cares about that? I'm going to put a review on the lenses in a bit so stay tuned! I also ordered 40 lower lashes for $10 online but we'll see how they go when they arrive.
 That wraps this up though, OOOOh except...I recently got involved in a very special project. I'm not allowed to say anything but I'm super excited about it and I hope when it comes to fruition you guys will all support it!
