Lemon Spa Experience


I'm not the type of girl who would usually visit a Hand and Foot Spa to pamper myself and have my nails groomed. I prefer trimming and polishing my own nails since I am very sensitive when it comes to pain and besides I don't think paying for something I can do myself is not at all practical. However, my Mom who particularly likes going to a spa to unwind asked me this time (Hmm..perhaps commanded would best describe her tone) to accompany her at the spa place near our home. Mom's work requires her standing for hours (Heck, I've even seen her run while at it), so I guess she deserves this kind of pampering and going with her would be my small contribution in making it up to her.

REVIEW: Crystal Color Contact Lens in Peridot Brown


Crystal Color Contact Lens in Peridot Brown, Lens case and a Manual
Hi ladies, so here's another (super late) review post about Crystal Clear Contact Lens  which I purchased last December. This is my second pair of contact lens, the first one was from Verona Optical Shop located at SM San Lazaro but unfortunately I forgot to blog about it. I lost all the things that comes with the product before I realized that I missed to post about it. Tee-hee!

I started wearing contact lens when I was in 3rd year college. I preferred to buy a pair of contacts to avoid wearing glasses whenever I dance or perform outdoor activities. I also preferred not to get my contact lens from optical shops which I found were way too expensive compared to online shops. So the last time I visited an Optical shop I took note of my grade and purchased a contact lens online. 

Fast Facts:

* Origin: South Korea
* Diameter: 14.8 mm
* My Grade: -0.50 (both)
* Base Curve: 8.7
* Water: 42%
* Power: Plano
* Shelf life: 5 years
* Life span: 1 year
* Manufactured by: Color Vision
* Price: PHP 299.00 with Free Lens case and a 35 ml Lens Solution
* Where to buy: My Fashion Lenses and Beauty House (Facebook & Instagram)




In choosing colors for my contacts, I usually go for either Brown or Black. I've never tried the other colors. But if given a chance, I would love to try the Gray or the Amethyst ones. I feel I am not ready yet for colors that will change my eyes completely as it feels like I'm an alien out of nowhere. 

My Retrospective view:

I never thought that I would be wearing any contacts as comfortable as this one. It feels like you're not wearing any contacts at all. My eyes tend to dry so fast so I keep an eye lubricant handy or I will just wear the contacts for a maximum of 6 hours. And also equally important for me is I didn't experience any itchy feeling with this particular lens. The color is so vibrant and yet looks so natural. I got a lot of compliments whenever I wear this lens so yeah, I frequently used this the past 3 months.

I was so amazed how it transformed my eyes. It gives a pop-up effect instantly. I so love it!



Oh yeah!

- Affordable. I think this is the cheapest price I've seen online.
- No burning sensation.
- Comfortable to wear.
- Looks so natural.

Na-ah!

- There was this one time that I left them on its lens case and  after a week or two of not wearing them, I checked the contacts only to find that the water and the lens dried up. And I don't know why :( I need to soak the lens again for a week for it to be back to its normal condition. So right now, I ended up checking the lens every so often.

Tips/Recommendations:

- Use it only for 6 hours maximum per day.
- Make sure your hands are clean and dry before touching your lens.
- I use an Eye Lubricant whenever I feel dryness on my eyes.
- Don't sleep with contacts on.
- Use sunglasses whenever you go outside to avoid small particles coming to your eyes. 

Repurchase?

A definite Yes! Planning to get another color and other variety.

I also bought a Hello Kitty Travel Lens case from Greenhills.



I use the tweezers-like clip to get my contact lens to avoid contamination. I would usually buy a large bottle of solution and fill the small bottle for use whenever I have an out of town trip or something.

Do you wear contact lenses too? Can you suggest any color?
Tell me your thoughts about this.
Stay beautiful, mi loves. And always wear your invisible crown.

To The Best Thing That's Ever Been Mine (An Open Letter)


First of all, I just want you to know that I did love you. I am so sorry that we have to end up like this. I never thought I'd find myself in this place, but you ultimately put me here. I can't tell if I am mad or what. It just feels like it happens so fast. It's sad someone you loved can turn into a complete stranger. 

Deal With Real Life


Hi Ladies! Sorry for being MIA for almost a month. I missed blogging!! I missed reading blogs of my co-bloggers. But here I am, back to business. I have lots of pending posts and I promise to update this blog more often.

The Donya just went through hell this month and I had to face all the trials life threw at me all alone. I always wanted to post an update this past few days, but nothing good came out in my mind so I ended up signing out and facing problems again. The bright side of this is that I realized lots of things from every trial that crossed my way.

1. If you feel weird about something during a relationship.. speak up.


I think we can't have a relationship without fights, tears, pain, arguments, misunderstandings and jealousy. But to make it work they must have faith, trust, patience, sweetness, love, laughter and two people wanting to be together no matter what. Speak up for your heart, so that you won't have regrets. Your partner is not a fortune teller or a mind reader to know what's going on in your head. A relationship is worth fighting, but you can't be the only one fighting. So yeah.. Heartbroken ang donya hahaha!

2. Have as much contact as possible with older people.

I met people at my former job who are older than I am and I am so thankful about it. I never knew that I would fit in their circle. This is so valuable to me because people my age don’t usually have the decision-making ability to help me very much. Also, they know almost everything you will learn later, so I always ask them. Whether it's my love life issues, work problems, family and etc. Thank you to my two former bosses and my former partner who I considered friends now. I will always be thankful that you came into my life. 

3. Reduce all expenses as much as possible.

Do I need to explain this?! I mean it. I'm dying to buy the iPhone 5 even the one with the S but I'm trying hard to control myself to save my remaining money for something worth spending. 

4. Get a flat tummy.. Summer is here!


Potipot Island this February/March then a pool party this April? Bring it on! They said while we are young our hormones are in a better condition to help us achieve the body we want. So I shouldn't waste any opportunity. I should use my Roller Slide more often.

5. I should sleep early or at least have a 5 hours sleep.

I feel so inefficient when I slept so late or I only had a 3 hours sleep. My sleep deprivation is not helping me good anymore, so I should change my body clock now except weekends please.

6. Learn to let go and move on.

There's a point in your life when you get tired of trying to fix everything and trying to stick yourself to all the people you can't live without. When you finally decided to quit, it's not giving up. It's realizing you have to let go these people to realize that if they wanted to stay, they'd still be there.

7. Stop doubting yourself. Work hard. Make it happen.



They say you die twice in this world. First, when you stop breathing and second when somebody say's your name for the last time. I wanna leave a legacy. Something that people will remember the real me. Something that I can help other people. I am proud to say that I am one step closer to my dream because I do really believe that I can make it. Time is running out. I'm gonna go confidently in the direction of my dreams. Live the life I've imagined.

I'm sorry for ranting about my life right now but this blog is my breather. It really feels so good blogging personal stuffs. I'll try to be back and do some reviews again! Thank you for reading my non-sense post today!

Thank you for visiting my blog and stay beautiful. Always!
