If you guys don't already know, the 2016 color of the year is Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue. This is the first time ever (I think) that there are two colors of the year. I love this pair because it's so easy to incorporate in an outfit. I'm also currently quite obsessed with this blush pink color so you will be seeing a lot more outfits in this shade soon.

How I'm surviving my allergies

April 18, 2016
Spring is definitely here. I've been sneezing and rubbing my eyes due to itchiness for a few weeks now, but it wasn't until the beginning of last week where I got the major hit. My throat was itchy and I developed the gross, phlegm-y cough. However, within 3-5 days I'm back to almost normal, and I felt like these things I did really helped. Most of the things I do are pretty self explanatory, but I thought I'll share a few tips.
1. Cough drops
At the first sign of any throat irritation I always grab my cough drops. Usually, if it's not too bad it'll soothe my throat quite well, and it will go away.

2. Hot beverage - Water/tea with honey and lemon (lime)
Whenever, my throat is sore or if my nose is stuffy, I always gravitate towards drinking something warm. Usually I just drink hot water, but if you want some flavor you can add flavors or go the more natural route and add honey and lemon. I prefer the latter because the honey helps soothe the throat, and the lemon or lime adds a bit of vitamin C which doesn't hurt; plus, it gives the water better flavor in my opinion. Tea is also a great alternative. I recommend green tea since it contains vitamin C. Staying hydrated is really important. Try to stay away from drinks that have dairy or is too creamy. It just makes you feel more phlegmy and cough more.

3. Cough syrup
I prefer this Chinese herbal one rather than the infamous Robitussin. First off, the taste is way better in my opinion, and it has other benefits besides soothing throat irritations. It nourishes the lungs, balance heat, and keep skin "radiant" from long hours and staying up late.

4. Allergy medicine
I personally do not take any because I am allergic to most of them. Yeah, it sucks, but from those that I know that took over the counter allergy medicines, it's a win-lose. My sister have tried a bunch and none seem to work on her so I don't feel like I'm missing out.

5. Steam
Being congested is not fun, but steam really helps relieve it. Taking hot showers really soothes the stuffiness and make you realized how you've been taking breathing normally for granted haha~

I am a lot better now, but I still have a cough - not the phlegmy, gross sounding one so I'm glad. I honestly cannot wait until summer is here.

I hope you guys are doing well. 
If you are suffering from allergies, I got you. I know exactly how you feel.

Klenspop Circle Lens Review: Diamond Brown (VS)

April 14, 2016
DIA:  15mm 
Graphic DIA:  14.8mm 
BC:  8.6mm 
Using Period:  6 months 
Water Content:  38% 
Power 0.00~-5.00(0.25Step) -5.00~-8.00(0.50Step) There are no -0.25, -0.75, -5.25, -5.75
Manufacturer:  VASSEN 
 Origin: KOREA
COLOR&DESIGN: 
The lenses itself looked very orange when not worn, but after wearing them it looked more brown. The design is definitely way different than the usual ones I wear. It has a diamond pattern that makes my eyes look like a gem! It definitely adds a bit of sparkles to the eyes. 

ENLARGEMENT: 
Very enlarging for my eyes. It goes into the bug-eyed territory where I look a little funny if I had zero eye makeup. I still look a bit bug-eyed/alien-ish with makeup on as well.

COMFORT: 
Because the diameter of these are bigger, it's not a pair of lenses that I would choose to wear for the whole day (as in more than 8 hours). I was able to wear it for about 3-4 hours before it felt drying.

OVERALL: 
These lenses are just not my cup of tea. I prefer ones that have a more natural design and enlargement, but I still love trying these lenses out. I've been interested in these lenses for a while and was always curious to how it would look on me. Although I wore a natural smokey eye look, the lenses still looked too big for my eyes. I recommend wearing falsies to balance the look more or go for a darker eye-look. Will definitely recommend these for cosplayers! I did feel a little like an anime character wearing these :)

Thanks again Klenspop for hooking this girl up with some new lenses!
