[Disclaimer]: The links in this post are affiliated and if you choose to make a purchase with any of these links or use my coupon code, I will earn a commission from the sale (thank you if you do so!). As with all my reviews, sponsored or not, this post will be my 100% honest opinion based on my personal experience with the product. I am not an eyecare specialist so please be sure to see a professional first before you purchase and use any of the lenses I review on this blog.

Hi angels, how are you? I hope you've been well! I have another sponsored lens review for you 🥰 I received another package from Eyecandys just before I went on vacation so this post is long overdue!
Eyecandys has a large selection of Korean, Japanese, and cosplay lenses. They offer free international shipping on all orders above $35USD and if you use my coupon code "SEIRREN" you will receive an additional 10% off your order 💖 order as well as a free mystery gift! 💖 
Today I am reviewing the Libre Grey lenses. These have a 8.6mm base curve and are 14.0mm in diameter. These lenses are also biannual disposables so please discard them after this time to prevent discomfort and/or damage to your eyes.

Color: ♥♥♥♥♡
These are a nice but subtle grey. They can appear a bit dark in certain lighting but they stand out well against my natural eye color. I feel like they could be a touch lighter or brighter but these are great for daily looks. 

Design: ♥♥♥
The design on these create a very "my eyes but grey" situation. They don't look unnatural even though the color is different than my natural eye color. It blends nicely and doesn't look out of place. The pupil area is quite large so it gives you a bit of a doe/dolly eye effect.
Enlargement: ♥♡♡
The enlargement on these is pretty much non-existent as the design diameter is very close to my natural eye. I would say the enlargement effect comes from where the color is placed in the design. 

Comfort: ♥♥♥♥
I wore these for about 4-6 hours and didn't experience any discomfort, irritation, or dryness.

Overall: ♥♥♥♡♡
I think these lenses are pretty but rather basic. They are very similar to a lot of grey lenses I've tried in the past. They're nice but nothing special so I probably wouldn't get them again. If you have always wanted to try some natural grey lenses I would say these are a great place to start! They're very easily wearable and you can get a good sense of how this color works for you and if you want to try other styles of grey lenses 🥰
I hope you found this review helpful and enjoyable to read. Please let me know if you have any questions about these lenses. Thank you again to Eyecandys for sponsoring this post!

Thank you for stopping by today, I'll see you in the next one~ 💖

New Hair & Nails for Vacation

Hi angels! I hope you're having a nice day so far. I'm still catching up on backlogged posts but we're almost to the vacation posts so please bear with me 🙇🏻‍♀️

I decided to get my hair done for vacation and I was also due for a new nail set so I went a bit hard on them both because I wanted to impress Kohi 😅
I got my hair done first. I've been meaning to get blue for a long while now but because of my previous pink escapade it stained my hair so I haven't been able to get the color of my dreams.

I was fully prepared to hang up my blue dreams but my stylist said it's grown out enough and I've gotten rid of most of the staining so we could go ahead with a nice vibrant blue!! I was so excited to hear this. When I was watching her apply the color I already knew I was going to be in love and she absolutely delivered on that 😩💦
Here are the results!! I am so in love with the gradient effect she gave me. I think I'm going to keep this color for a while, I'm just so bored of silver/pink/purple 😭
I went home and took some pics in a cowboy hat as per Kohi's request so here you go 🤪
Next it was time to get my nails done. I'm still on that designer binge and Jesse said she got some new Chanel charms so we decided to do a blue set to match my hair. She went extra hard on this set and I'm completely obsessed!!! I'm not sure how she's going to top this (but she will lol) 😱
I ended up going back to my last salon for my first pedicure and tbh I'm not sure why I never thought about getting pedicures before. I am a bit ticklish but the results were amazing and the whole experience was super relaxing. I'm not gonna post pics cause no free feet 4 u but here's some cute pics I took in the waiting area~
With all that I was finally vacation ready! I felt so refreshed but I still needed to do some things before I was on my way for my trip so stay tuned for the details in the next few posts~

Thanks for stopping by and reading, catch you later! 💖

Huge Catch Up Post [very image heavy]

Hi angels it's been a while! I recently just returned from vacation so I haven't been keeping up with my blogging. I had to prepare a lot of things for work so now I have a huge backlog of posts to catch up on before I get back up to speed so please bear with me 😭

Before I went on vacation I had a few cute little dates and get-togethers so I'll just photo dump them here cause I honestly can't remember any details that far back that anyone would care about lol

This post is going to be pretty long and have a lot of pictures so just a fair warning if you're on mobile data!

[July 23] Friends' Baby Shower

We got invited to our friends' baby shower & gender reveal party. I'm not a big fan of these kinds of functions but we wanted to go and show our support since we haven't seen these friends in quite a while.
The party was nice but far too many people (and their kids) for my liking. We left shortly after the reveal (they're having a girl!). It was super warm that day and they did the announcement outside so I dressed pretty light with just a tank top, some shorts and flannel to cover up in the sun.

I did a more rounded eye that day!
There was food and drink provided but it was uncovered and buffet style so we didn't eat anything. I ended up going to the food court to get a Japadog after.

[July 24] Dinner Date w/ Kevin & Kathy

We went out for dinner together to celebrate paying off my student loan! We went to Katsuya again and got bubble tea after. I had this look on earlier in the day but I didn't like it very much so I did a new one for dinner.
I decided to do another look with the candy brown lenses cause I just love how effortlessly cute they look 😩 I feel like this was more my vibe that day anyways 🤔
I got the terimayo katsu! It was so tasty~
Makeup details! I've been loving the nudy neutral eye a lot as my go-to. It's foolproof cause it matches any type of outfit and you don't have to think too hard about the eyeshadow placement lol

[July 29] Dinner with Friends/Old Coworkers

It's been really hard to stay connected during the pandemic. I started my current job during lockdown and haven't seen anyone in person for a long time so my old coworkers and I planned a quick dinner at the mall near my house. It has a big arcade stuck to the theatre with lots of food/tapas options so we decided to try it out.

I received a new package of sponsored lenses from Eyecandys so a review for these will be out soon! I am wearing the Libre Grey lenses here 👀
It was super warm out that day so I put my hair up and wore this cute little d.i.a. top I've been saving for hot weather.
This was my first time checking out this arcade and it was so big! It had a lot of interesting games I've never seen before~
My friends decided to play the Rabbids game, it was so cute lol the gun shoots toilet plungers 😂
I wasn't really hungry so I got this spinach and artichoke dip to share, it was so yummy I was pleasantly surprised!
Tbh I didn't really like this look when I was taking pics but now that I'm looking at the pics, it was actually pretty cute 🥺

[July 30] Café Date & KBBQ

Kevin took me out to a cute new café for a date. It's called C Market Coffee and it has a really aesthetic interior, I loved it a lot!
I got a lemonade and Kevin got a mocha. We shared a white chocolate matcha cake and it was the best I've ever had. It wasn't too sweet and the texture was very springy and moist. I would love to go back and try their other cake flavors!!
The sunset was very pretty on the way out~
I did some lighter makeup that day because my eyes were really irritated from allergies. I've basically been crying off my makeup a lot in the last few months so some days I just try not to aggravate them more by sticking on lots of lashes 😫
Afterwards we met up with a friend and had KBBQ! I haven't had it in such a long time it was so tasty I missed it so much 🥰

[July 31] Dinner at Zakkushi 

The KBBQ was so good we decided to go grab yakitori izakaya the next day with some of our other friends. We went to this place called Zakkushi and omg I'm obsessed!! I've never been to this chain before but now I'm sad I missed out all this time 🤡 I can't wait to go back again

Okay I think that was most of the backlogged content. This is already really long so I'll stop here and make a new post for some of the other things I remember better 😅

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading. I'll see you again soon!
