/Hair/ An Adventure in Color

If you follow me on Twitter (I don't think many people do, but you should check me out on there), I made a few tweets regarding things going on with my hair. Here's the whole story: A few months ago when I was set to color my hair again, I vowed that I would bleach it the next time I had to do my hair. I finally got the guts to buy a Manic Panic bleach kit ($12.99).

/Lenses/ Neo Shiny Dali Weekly Circle Lenses

this was purchased by me.

Hello again. I've been away for a while...there hasn't been a *real* post in a while and even longer since I've reviewed some circle lenses. I bought these weekly Neo Shiny Dali Brown lenses about two months ago. I love wearing brown lenses that enhance my brown eyes because I like how it looks so natural. I'd been wanting to try the Neo brand of lenses for a while because I've seen reviews on how comfortable they are. I was also interested in disposable lenses because they're so much more hygienic for daily wear. Let's take a closer look!

This deal started last week (6/12) and it ends on 6/31. You've got a while to pick out what you want and if you'd like some advice check out some of my circle lens reviews for some of my personal picks. Remember, EyeCandy's ships for free worldwide! Free shipping is always a great incentive when purchasing online. At least I think so. Anyway, I know this is something I'm not going miss out on.

/Make-up/ Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara

this was purchased by me.

I picked this up months ago when it was on sale at Rite Aid, but I had wanted to try it ever since it launched. I was intrigued by the idea of a mascara that would make my eyes look bigger with different wands for top and bottom lashes. After using Maybelline's original Falsies mascara, and thinking it was decent, I decided to try this. Let's see if I get bigger-looking eyes.

/Skin/ Shu Uemura Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil

this was purchased by me.

I bought this in December when the Shu Uemura site was having the 25% off orders of $50+ sale. I intended to get the cleansing oil in the pink bottle because I've used it before and thought it was good, but it was sold out at the time. I chose this, which is totally expensive at $42 for a 5 oz/150 ml bottle and $90 for 15 oz/ 450 ml, because it was the only other classing oil without mineral oil in the ingredient list. I've been using it since January and here are my thoughts on it.

/Skin/ Daiso Oil Blotting Cosmetic Paper

this was purchased by me.

As much as I love the look of healthy, glowing skin, there's a fine line between glowy and shiny with my face. I'm sure this is an issue with most people who have oily and/or combination skin. So in order to keep the oil balanced on my face I have a touch-up regime that I do about halfway through the day (4-5 hours after my initial make-up application). Oil blotting papers are part of my arsenal to combat shine and I happened to find this box of them at my local Daiso.

/Hair/ New Cut

Hello! Sorry for being away so long. I got a visit from my (new!) boyfriend a few weeks ago so I was distracted and busy showing him around. I didn't really recover from his departure yet so I've been kind of sad and lazy. Anyway, I was in need of a haircut, the last one I had was in January, so I went to the Aesthe' salon today. This was my hair before the cut:


It was really long and all my thinned out layers at the bottom had turned into a heavy blob. Here's my new hair!


It feels much lighter on my head because my hairdresser really thinned out my hair. I was quite scared to see all my hair on the floor. I like it, though. I asked for wavy hair and it looks rather cute. Too bad it won;t stay nice like this all the time (I have no idea how to curl my hair like this). Next thing to do would be coloring my hair....
