Cat Eyes::Pinkicon Circle Lens Review

A few weeks ago, I was sent a pair of circle lenses courtesy of Pinkicon. For those of you who aren't familiar with circle lenses, they're a type of contact lens that is super popular in Asia. They come in various colors and usually have an enlarging effect on the iris.

For this post I was sent a pair of lenses from the brand GEO in fire cat grey (you can find them here). I've never had the chance to wear circle lenses before this, though I've worn regular colored contact lenses in the past. In comparison to the normal "American" contact lenses, the circle lenses were much larger (mine were 15mm in diameter!). I really loved the grey color and thought they blended well with my eyes and they were quite comfortable as well. I could comfortably wear them all day without irritation.

Another difference between these lenses and regular contacts is that they last for 6 months with proper care, while regular contacts last around 2 weeks. So, while they seem expensive ranging from $20-$50 per pair, they do last a lot longer than normal contacts.

For those of you that want to try them out, Pinkicon has kindly provided a discount code! You can get $6 off any purchase of $25 or more with the code below! Go check them out!

Little Rebel :: Rose Royce Ambassador

Denim and leather is really the perfect combination. In this post, I'm wearing a denim vest from a new denim brand called Rose Royce. I've never really worn a denim vest before, so styling it was a little more difficult than I thought it would be. When in doubt, I generally go for more simple looks, and decided to wear it with my leather shorts. However, I think it'd look equally cute over a skirt or a dress!

I'm participating in yet another contest, this time in collaboration with Rose Royce Denim. Please vote for me to become their new brand ambassador on the official Rose Royce Facebook Page! You can vote once an hour and I'd be ever so greatful if you all voted for me! :)

Basics :: Wallis Competition

I'm participating in another Wallis competition! This time, it's focused on showcasing the best "transitional style" from summer to fall. I chose this black blazer, since no matter what season, a black blazer is always a good choice. While last summer, I was all about pretty dresses and frilly skirts, this summer I found myself dressing more laid back. Denim cut-offs became my go-to staple, which I like dressing up with some sky high wedges and a blazer. Blazers (even in black!) can definitely work for summer, by keeping everything else fresh and light.

I'd be so so grateful if you could vote for me in the Wallis Competition here!

Stay tuned for my second outfit featuring this blazer in a look for Fall!!
