EOS Bubble Grey Circle Lens Review From Shoppingholics & Giveaway Winner

posted on: Saturday, October 22


DRAMATIC LENS CALLS FOR DRAMATIC PICTUREEEE!! I wanted to get some circle lenses that were more spooky, less big eye girly look lately (mostly for Halloween) so luckily, Shoppingholics contacted me and we arranged a circle lens review. When their order came,  I was so happy about the packaging! The circle lenses were in a cute box and I finally got those cute pig contact cases (I kept seeing them everywhere and I, too wanted pigs to adorn my lenses)! Along with my order, they sent me one of those velcro out of hair holders. Great customer service :) I chose EOS bubble gray because unlike the regular circle lenses, they don't have an outer ring. I guess these could be classified as regular color contact lenses if it wasnt for the size.


Close up of how it looks. The pros of this circle lens is that it is very thin and comfortable. The color is super light and its very visible. I like how it looks IRL but pictures dont really do it justice Cons are that it doesn't give enlargement AT ALL. So if you want huge freaky ass dolly eyes, opt out of this. If you wanna have sexy cat eyes, go all in!! These are definitely contacts that look good with or without make-up. I've done really subtle make-up and it looks amazing! But thats because I like really eyecatching, dramatic colors.



Overall -- I give it a 8/10. This would be a perfect circle lens if they added a subtle dark/medium grey ring around the edge so I'm knocking off two points for it. 10/10 for the service though :)

Now onto my giveaway winner. It was really frustrating picking a winner because there were actually two to three people who won but they either shut down their blog or put it on private, leading me to disqualify them ): Remember to follow the rules people!! But after generating and regenerating and giving me a major headache.. the winner issss (drum rolls) MILKY WAY HEART!! Email me or comment below for your prize! Thank you for participating everyone!

I also have one more small prize to give out. I really like it when people do things and don't expect anything in return. Yeah I know a lot of you guys are comment shy and don't wanna talk to me /le cries/ but I value comments a lot (which is why I try my hardest to respond to each and every one in a timely manner). So I generated ANOTHER PRIZE... but this time I took all the comments from a random blog (so all the people who comment for the hell of it get a shot) and .... THE WINNER ISSS --> KT!! Contact me for the small prize :) (for those who are really nosy the blog was the one on 09/09/11.)

Until Next Time,

Promise Me a Rose Garden

posted on: Tuesday, October 18


Promised myself all these fantabulous things for October until school started REALLY whipping my ass >: No halloween video /sad face/ but its okay! I'm gonna take it slow and make videos as they come. 

Schools been more than a bitch. And as sad as my time management is, I still find time to exercise! I work out three to four times a week now and so far I've lost a good 8 pounds that stays off (not like those gross yucky starvation diets). I think the biggest whoa factor was when I lost two inches off my waist... WOW I MUST HAVE BEEN EATING PURE SHIT AND BEING A FATASS FOR THE LONGEST TIME!

But anyways, I'm really sad that I havent been able to share all the fun shit I bought with you guys!! (Like that more than awethum sweater. I've been in a sweater phase right now but lets not go off topic) BUT I WILL SHARE THE FACT THAT I BOUGHT AN IPHONE4S WHO0TWHO0T!! I've already spammed my twitter with more than enough images of food with faces :> (add me at @hystericmint to witness this epic food face epidemic that is sweeping the nation.. well okay just me)... Next post will be the giveaway winner anddddd........ a bitchy review!! Just kidding its not bitchy at all... I just ruined the surprise for you >:

& ONE MORE THING... DO YOU GUYS PREFER MORE BLOGS BUT WITH SHITTIER QUALITY IMAGES (via iphone) or less blogs but with dslr images? I noticed that people do not enjoy the iphone camho photos which is perfectly understandable because I hate those myself but I mean its way easier. I promise that my photos will be way more kickass than regular camho photos. ANSWER IN THE COMMENTS PLEASEEE

Leopard Print Cross, Canmake Lash Care Essence, & a Late Surprise Present

posted on: Wednesday, October 5

A bit difficult to take photos by myself but this is what the handy dandy manfrotto is for! Anyways I'm jumping the bandwagon on the leopard cross shirt except the one I bought was atrocious to say the least (it was so dirt cheap I couldn't pass it up though!). I didn't realize how weird the cut was until it was delivered to me and the bottom is shredded to resemble a rejected Halloween costume (it is October after all...). So I paired it with high wasted shorts and quite frankly, I think I look spiffy!


And now for a photo I took of my boyfriend!! He was playing with his phone when I took this beautiful photo & when I told him to take one of me, he hesitantly took a CRAPTASTIC ONE!! Well the sun was setting by that time but I wanted epic lens flare photo as well!! Anyways tomorrow is his birthday so if you guys have time you should tweet him (@theincarna) a happy birthday so he will be really confused why these people are tweeting him!!


Oh my gosh on my birthday, thaniekb sent me this EPIC SHADY LADY PALETTE (from the balm)!! I'm so shocked!! Thank you so much. I've never gotten real birthday presents from friends other than keychains or etc items so this was so nice. I even called my bf to tell him I got a real hallmark card & he called me a dork >: hmph!! I'm gonna try these shadows tomorrow.

Also, I bought this canmake eyelash treatment thing because... I have spaces in my eyelashes now. The worst ones are the bottom eyelashes because I used to glue fake bottom lashes and now there are huge gaps that won't fill ): ): This serum is seriously hardcore. It made my lashes longer! But sadly, not thicker. I still use it nightly though.

Local Manufacturers: Nooworks SF

posted on: Saturday, October 1


My teacher gave us all an assignment to interview and write a report on local manufacturers. Me and my group decided to do Nooworks, a clothing company in San Francisco, and I learned so much about local manufacturing that I never knew before! Such as the MOQ for local manufacturers are so much lower than overseas. If you've ever deal with overseas companies, you'll know what I mean ): ): 

But anyways, nooworks uses four different artists each year to create different prints for their seasonal collections. So that ensures that each piece you buy has a limited quantity. The greatest thing about this whole process is that its actually not that pricey (30-100+ dollars) & their dresses are totally adorable! Anyways some delicious photos for you guys now!



I'm feeling a bit (okay incredibly!!) uninspired lately. I don't know if its the stress of school or weight gain or what but I really need to re-motivate myself out of this slump! Its more of a quarter-life crisis if anything ): I'm so incredibly grateful for each and every one of my followers so thank you guys for supporting me this whole time! who0ho0!!  

Until Next Time,
