The Girl With Blue Eyes

My eyes are brown. Like most Asians, they are plain and boring. So, what did Korean create to make our eyes stand out? Circle lenses! Circle lenses are basically contact lenses that make your iris look bigger and they come in a huge variety or colors and designs. In high school, I've always wanted to try colored contact lenses, but never really dared. Well, I finally caved in and buy two pairs of circle lenses - one blue, one gray, which I write a review at a later date, on yesstyle.ca

When I first wore the blue contacts, my first thought was "woooah". I have to say, I was scared for the first few seconds. I have friends who wear colored contacts, so I am used of seeing Asians with blue, green and gray eyes.  But having a different eye color on myself was something I had to get used of. I like that my eyes stand out more and that people lose themselves looking into my eyes because it's so unusual. My sister consistently tells me it's ugly because it's unnatural. But I guess that's also why I like it. I find it brightens up my face.

Concerning the prices, I didn't think the lenses were overly expensive. Quality wise, I had assumed with the low prices, the lenses would be cheaply made, but so far I haven't had any issues yet. The circle lenses are, however, much thinner than my usual contacts (Air Optix Aqua), so I do handle them with much more care. I feel I the lenses will break with the lightest touch! Despite the long hours of wear, I haven't felt much dryness. No discomfort overall! I orignally wanted to get a green pair, but my prescription was out of stock. Once it's available again I'm a definitely getting them, so get ready for my green eyes!


Birthday Macarons

Last Sunday, on my very own birthday, I had to wake up early to go write an midterm exam. Yes, you read correctly, I had an exam on Sunday morning! No, it wasn't an alternate... that's just how my university does thing. " Oh let's schedule exams on weekends; Sunday mornings!"

Since I didn't get the chance to plan out what to do to celebrate with my friends, I pushed the celebrations to some other time and stayed home and relaxed. By relaxing, I meant making maracons! I've been wanting to make some macarons for a bloody long time but never really got to it! I called up my friend Mark and asked him he was wanted to join, which he did. Good thing he came, because I don't think it would've been as successful had he been not here. I was all over the place, creating messes after messes. Mark, on the other hand had previously made macarons, so he was able to guide me through it. We made rose flavored macaons, which are one of my favorite. The first time I had taste rose macarons was in Paris and I've been thinking about it ever since! Overall, the macarons were good, but we might have over baked the merengues and didn't put enough coloring. It's definitely something we will have to try making again!
