/Hair/ New Cut

Got a haircut earlier today.
I don't know if anyone noticed before, but I had too much volume at the bottom of my hair....which I guess that's fine for people who have thin hair...As a person who has naturally thick/voluminous hair, it can become heavy and bothersome. I asked my hairdresser at Aesthe' to thin out my hair through the lengths and give me some layers. She straigh-ironed it at the end to make it look all sleek. I like it. My hair feels really light (however it is a little shorter) and it's probably easier to manage.

/Skin/ Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Radiance Renewer

this was given as a gift to me.

I got this a few months ago, during the time I went on my end-of-summer vacation. Duty-free shops are difficult to resist and I limited myself to getting something that would benefit my skin. An added bonus: it fit in my luggage without adding bulk.

/Hair/ L'Oreal Preference Sun-Kissed Caramels Hi-Lift Ash Brown

this was purchased by me.

I needed to color my hair again as my previous color had started to fade, introducing my roots to the world. I choose this shade because it was featured on ekiblog (my ultimate source for hair coloring among other things) and I was curious to see the results of the hi-lift on my hair. Annndd, I happened to have a coupon for a box of L'Oreal hair color.

/Announcement/ A Slow Down

Hello. I know posts have been few and far between for those of you who check this blog...maybe occasionally. I've just got some news: I'll be in school for the next three months. I'm currently in a university library as I type this minute.

hello. i'm obviously doing homework.

At any rate, this is going to be my excuse for the lack of posts. I do have a lot to put up (in categories such as hair, lips, nails, lenses, skincare), though, and in an effort to maintain/increase production of such things, I'll be minimizing the elaborate, superfluous writing that detracts from the content of a post, particularly pertaining to a review. So....yeah. Less words and better/concise criteria with about the same amount of pictures. I promise.

/Make-up/ 3 Concept Eyes Pore Silky Balm

this was purchased by me.

So, I got this last month. I've been wanting to try 3 Concept Eyes for a while, specifically after I had seen some youtube featuring some products. I researched the brand online (I am officially obsessed with the stylenanda look) and I was immediately enamored with the array of products and the packaging. I wanted to purchase from the stylenanda website, but the shipping frightened me ($20!??) so I was absolutely thrilled to discover that Eye Candy's had a stock of 3CE, at a slightly higher price, and it could ship for free.

/Lenses/ GEO Jasmine Circles Lenses in Violet and Gray

these were purchased by me.

It's the first official review post of the new year! I'm not that excited, but this should probably be an exciting thing because I've continued to blog on here for over 8 months. I actually got these lenses a while ago ago, like in September(?), from Korea Big Eyes (currently having a sale with 30% off everything and free standard shipping until 1/6). Even though shipping can take forever from that site, the prices for circle lenses are so low it's usually hard to resist a purchase....Both lenses featured in this post were $8 each. Sadly, I think the violet and gray jasmine lenses (AKA sunflower series) are (nearly) sold out.
