Oh the Things for Beauty...

I have been playing around with the different BB creams that I got as samples from Sephora. I am still using the Smashbox and Dr. Jart samples because I feel that my face might have been oily feeling from the new moisturizer that I had been using. Also because they were free. ☆~(ゝ。∂)
I have been trying them with different moisturizers. So far though, I feel that I really need an oil-free BB cream. The one I am liking the most right now is the Stila all-day one. (I will have another post for this.)

I also received my circle lenses that I ordered from They actually arrived on 02-01-2013, but I somehow missed the notice to pick them up. I got the Final Notice on Saturday and picked them up Monday morning.
Princsss MiMi Almond Brown XMM-204
ColorNine Moon Grey AN-A45

I had to work all day when I got them, so I wasn't able to wear them until today (02-12-2013). I am wearing the grey pair and they are very comfortable. I put them on around 10am and it is now 4pm, they still feel pretty comfortable. Tho my eyes feel a little tired and I have a slight headache, but I'm not sure if it's from the contacts or if it's a reaction to how much perfume I just sprayed. (^~^;)ゞ LOL! 
They also look very  natural to me, most everyone thinks it's my real eyes. I got so many compliments on how I looked. (*^‿‿^*) I think that it's from the contacts, makes my eyes sparkle and very doe-like.
After work, I went to the store and bought some re-wetting drops. They actually carried the Rhoto brand that I've seen other circle lens websites recommend to buy. I bought the Rhoto Ice kind. When I used them, my headache instantly went away. The feeling was very cooling and refreshing. It felt extremely good on my tired dry eyes that I was able to keep them in for another six hours without any more discomfort. I am extremely happy with my purchase from The shipping was technically before the 21 working days that it said, but I somehow missed the first and second notices. So it was 21 week days before I actually had them in my hands. They have a sale for Valentine's Day; 20% off, so I will definitely be ordering from them again. (*´∀`) ノ♡

I also purchased some new plugs from Onetribe Organics. Since it was my first purchase from them, and I'm not at the size I want to be yet, I ordered from their Clearance Grab Bag. Their jewelry is kind of expensive, but once I received my items, I feel that the quality is worth the price. I'm glad that they offer the clearance grab bag though, it allowed me to try them out before making a commitment to something I wasn't sure I'd love. What I really liked about them too is that they don't use any glues or yucky stuff like that in any of their jewelry. It's all organic materials and inspired by nature.  

I went to show them to a friend of mine and he broke the stone pair (not on purpose). I was so sad. ヽ(´□`。) He did however replace them with another stone pair. It may not be onetribe, but it's also stone. Still kinda sad about it tho... I hadn't even gotten to enjoy the pair at all and it got broken... ((T.T; )

Going Veg + My Blonde Hair

I've been trying to cut out meat more and more from my diet. So I've been trying a bunch of different recipes that I've found online. It's difficult trying to find something that's filling and still tastes good at the same time. It's an accomplishment if my brother doesn't complain, "its missing meat..." Here is the recipe that I tried and we all enjoyed it very much. I've made it twice already.

I did try another recipe as well, but even though it was filling, I felt that it was missing something... Here is the recipe if you want to try it: Vegan Spiced Coconut Chard and Chickpeas with  Quinoa.
I also found some Indian recipes that I've tasted in a frozen boxed meal from Amy's. It seems easy enough to make, so I'm going to try to make something called Aloo Matar.

Also here is an update on how my hair turned out.
The bottom and back is still kind of orange (my hair is a light golden strawberry blonde), but I'm pretty happy with the color right now.
