Circles Lens Review: Vassen Little Mermaid Ocean Blue (+ Pictures)

So my circle lens finally arrived! I actually feel that it took longer. Hmm. Maybe it’s because I was expecting them any day, haha. But they still arrived very quickly!

As a reminder, I got the Vassen Little Mermaid Ocean Blue, plano – because I honestly don’t remember my prescription. I had bought these from Pinky Paradise as a gift to myself and to start myself off with a circle lens addiction. Er um. Here’s the information about the lenses:

Diameter: 14.5
Water Content: 42%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Lifetime: 1 (One) Year
Country: South Korea
Website: http://www.vassen-contactlens.com/

Hmm. Perhaps I have to warn that I’m not wearing any makeup because, well, I’m lazy. That’s really it. Sorry, if you were looking for those types of pictures. Also I have yet to own a pair of false eyelashes so I guess that’s another thing I have to “warn” about. Haha… Well. I’m just so excited that I just sort of rushed it. Whatever, I do what I want!

Anyway, I did a quick comparison picture to see whether they enlarged:

Such a difference!

The enlargement is obvious but I don’t think that’s really a bad thing. Hmm. I really like how they came out though!

Also, I must note that the only reason my left eye looks red is because I always have trouble putting in my left contact. Always. It took a while but I got it in! I also waited about 10 minutes for my left to get used to it and for it to clear up as much as I could. Believe me, it was much redder before.

All in all, I am extremely satisfied with these lenses! I love the color, the comfort level! I don’t really have any complaints about it at all. I mean, at first glance it seems like it could be more purple than anything (especially under dim lights) but it comes out as a natural (as natural as it could be, I guess) blue on me that I’ve always dreamed about – and what’s even better, they’re from a mermaid line! Mermaids are truly my favorite types of mythology. ♥

Enlargement 10/10 – These enlarges my irises just fine! It’s kind of obvious that I’m wearing contacts with these on but I really don’t find that uncomfortable!
Color & Design 10/10 – I was worried that my dark brown eyes wouldn’t bring it out but thankfully that wasn’t the case! The color itself seems like it could be purple under certain lights (but little did the makers of Vassen realize that I actually really like purple so it’s a win-win). The design is clear and extremely pretty! I adore these! It really goes with the theme of “Ocean Blue”!
Comfort 10/10 – These are extremely comfortable! I feel like these are just like any old prescription contacts that I used to wear back in the day! I could definitely get used to wearing these! I just wish my eyes would get used to it and stop blurring themselves out.
Overall 10/10 – These are absolutely perfect! Everything is amazing and I’m so glad I made this purchase! I think I’ll probably invest more into Vassen products in the future!

And now the moment you’re waiting for! Just look below for the other pictures that I decided to take with these on!

Finally, A Haul Post!

Before my birthday, I was able to go to a mall in Scottsdale and just splurge before I moved here. I’m only able to do it now because now I’m finally settled enough to take pictures, upload, and post pictures now. I was hanging out with my friends (those I’m hoping I can see again this weekend) when we both found Wet Seal!

It’s a store here in North America that has this cool sale: if you buy anything on clearance, you can get something else on clearance for a penny. Literally, a penny! I’ve taken advantage of this sale once before but that was way before I had this blog. So… let’s see what I got this time!:

Ehehehe…. I was feeling very 80s that day but I couldn’t resist! Usually I don’t have green clothes (like I can count two other green shirts in my wardrobe – one was a gift and another has Keroppi on it) so yeah. Out of all of them, the light green camisole was the only one that wasn’t on sale. :3

And as you can tell, I got a pair of flats! That was lucky, right? Here’s a closer look of them:

Those are so cute! And I actually had some footless tights I had lying around from a previous spree but I figured it’d be a cute addition to the outfit!

The bracelet really adds to the 80s look ehehe. :”D I couldn’t help it! Oh but my friend, Jenna, told me about another store next to Wet Seal – Charmin Charlie! It’s a place where they sell mostly accessories but jewelry mostly. They ahhh, had another sale on their clearance items: buy one necklace get another free!

And with minutes till the mall closed I just had to get this:

Obviously, you can see a trend here. Granted, I have no problem paying full price for something but if I’m going to get an extra gift with my dollar spent with clearance items, then so be it! :3

Anyway, that’s the cute strawberry and this second one here:

Originally, it’s a star key. Unfortunately, in the process of moving, it broke. D: I still have the other part but I have to get some hot glue to fix it. Ahh but it’s still cute even though it’s broke, huh?

Moments after we left the mall, we went back to Tempe to go to Zia Records and I actually managed to find a JPOP album. o_O; I mean, they had Dir en Grey but that’s kind of standard as far as an independent rock store goes but… JPOP? And more importantly, SMAP?

Even though I haven’t talked about Johnny’s much in the past few years or so, I still had to get it. o_o I mean, how could I not?

But anyway, sorry it’s short but ^^; haha, I don’t know what else to put in here. But yeah. That’s all I got anyway. Once I go away for the weekend, I’ll wear those and I’ll take pictures so expect to see it on Monday or Tuesday or when I’m able to. @_@;; Enjoy your Labor Day weekend!

Strapya Weekly: Sweepstakes Winners & More Cute Things!

Okay, I know I said that I may not be able to post today but looks like I was wrong! But if this weekend goes as planned, then a couple of days worth with no posts. Who knows?

Anyway, remember a few weeks ago I posted about a certain sweepstakes? Well, the winners are here! Yay! Anyway, let’s get started with this week’s post!

Since these have literally been flying off the shelves, perhaps it was only natural that they were gong to create a phone cover to match with them!

Of course, cats have been popular anyway since…even during the Lady’s period when they came out in 1991 (according to the Japanese Schoolgirl Inferno: Tokyo Teen Fashion Subculture Handbook) with the Nameneko goods. As long as there are people who love cats, the cat trend will always be here and these covers are proof of that.

The covers that come with it are: Niconico Nekomura Cat iPhone 4S/4 Case (TV), Niconico Nekomura Cat iPhone 4S/4 Case (Tama), Niconico Nekomura Cat iPhone 4S/4 Case (Footprints), & Niconico Nekomura Cat iPhone 4S/4 Case (Cat Tower). As of this post, they’re all on pre-order so be sure to get yours soon before it gets sold out!

Oh! And if you wanted to know what earphone jacks are: Niconico Nekomura Cat Earphone Jack Plug Accessory (Buchi), Niconico Nekomura Cat Earphone Jack Plug Accessory (Mikeneko), Niconico Nekomura Cat Earphone Jack Plug Accessory (Shiro and Kuro), Niconico Nekomura Cat Earphone Jack Plug Accessory (Tama), Niconico Nekomura Cat Earphone Jack Plug Accessory (Tora), Niconico Nekomura Cat Earphone Jack Plug Accessory (Mimi), & Niconico Nekomura Cat Earphone Jack Plug Accessory Complete Set.

Haha, well, apparently they also have both the phone cover & jack in a set! There’s only four so if you don’t like that set, you can always combine with the other jacks from above (unless you pre-order all the jacks): Niconico Nekomura Cat iPhone 4S/4 Cover and Earphone Jack Plug Accessory Perfect Set (A), Niconico Nekomura Cat iPhone 4S/4 Cover and Earphone Jack Plug Accessory Perfect Set (B), Niconico Nekomura Cat iPhone 4S/4 Cover and Earphone Jack Plug Accessory Perfect Set (C), & Niconico Nekomura Cat iPhone 4S/4 Cover and Earphone Jack Plug Accessory Perfect Set (D)!

Remember, these are all on pre-order as of this post so be sure to place your order soon!

Looks like they finally released some Sanrio covers for the Samsung Galaxy S3! This line doesn’t just have Hello Kitty, but My Melody, Little Twin Stars, and Patty & Jimmy!

Here’s what they have available: Sanrio Characters TPU Case for Samsung Galaxy S III (Hello Kitty/Flower), Sanrio Characters TPU Case for Samsung Galaxy S III (Hello Kitty/Leopard), Sanrio Characters TPU Case for Samsung Galaxy S III (My Melody/Flower), Sanrio Characters TPU Case for Samsung Galaxy S III (My Melody/Heart), Sanrio Characters Shell Jacket for Samsung Galaxy S III (Hello Kitty), Sanrio Characters Shell Jacket for Samsung Galaxy S III (Little Twin Stars), Sanrio Characters Shell Jacket for Samsung Galaxy S III (My Melody), & Sanrio Characters Shell Jacket for Samsung Galaxy S III (Patty and Jimmy).

Some of these have limited quantity so you should get it before someone else does!

As you may recall, when I started to post Strapya Weekly, I mentioned I had bought something from Strapya before! I’ve bought the GUM Strap Charm Button for my phone.

However, it didn’t take long till there’s a Hello Kitty and My Melody version! There’s only two: Sanrio Hello Kitty Strap Hole Sticker and Sanrio My Melody Strap Hole Sticker. However, I have a creeping feeling there’s going to be more characters featuring soon!

So instead of getting a seemingly boring sticker for your phone, you can get these instead and you can hang your Kiiroitori strap on there!!

Now, finally, the moment you’ve been waiting for! The announcement for the sweepstakes! Check below if you’re the winner! Sadly, I’m not a winner but maybe one day I could win something at these giveaways or sweepstakes…

The e-mail also included this statement:

We will send emails to winners as soon as possible when we get prepared to ship prizes.

So please look out for that special e-mail! Congrats once again!
