My Favourite Cutesy Animes~

Today I thought I'd write a casual post about some of my favorite cutesy animes~
When I first got into anime sometime in middle school/the beginning of high school, I only watched really serious dark action shows, but my preferences have completely switched ;u; 
Now I definitely prefer the more casual, relaxed and cute slice-of-life shows! So I thought I'd share some of my favorites in case any of you were looking for something new to watch~

1. Is the Order a Rabbit?

'Is the Order a Rabbit' is a show about high school girls who work in various cafes~ I find the art style to be really cute and all of the characters are adorable in their own unique ways ^.^ There's also lots of imagery of yummy cafe drinks and desserts which I definitely enjoy~ It's a very laid-back casual show and it's very very cute <3

2. Kiniro Mosaic
I'm currently watching this show, and I have to say, I love it so much <3 
It's about a girl from England who goes to Japan as an exchange student, and the rest of the story revolves around the school life of her and her friends. Sadly it's only twelve episodes long, but it's certainly a joy to watch <3

3. Tamako Market
'Tamako Market' is about a girl who works in a mochi shop (which has a rivalry with another mochi shop that's across the street from it). She's very scatterbrained and completely oblivious to the guy who has a crush on her (he's the son of the rival mochi shop-owner). There's also fat bird who's flying around trying to find a princess for the prince of his island, which did feel a bit random, but overall this was a very cute show <3

4. K-On!

I honestly wasn't expecting to like this show when I first started it, but it really drew me in! 
It's about high school girls who start a 'light-music club', and it turned out to be really cute and it made me smile a lot ^.^ The songs that they play are also not too bad~ 

I think that's it for the cute animes that I've watched so far! I'm sort of new to this genre, but I thought I'd feature my favorites <3
Anyways, thank you for reading!
Have you seen any of these? What are your favorite animes?

TT Black-1 Lens Review {Klenspop Sponsored}~

Hi everyone!
Happy (late) Halloween~
Today I'll be reviewing a pair of lenses kindly sent to me for review by the online store Klenspop. They have a lovely selection of lenses and I highly recommend them~
Anyway, let's get started!

The lenses I'm reviewing today are the TT Black-1 Lenses. They're currently $18 USD on the Klenspop site, and have a graphic diameter of 13.6mm (which will look quite natural on most eyes).

Despite having a thick limbal ring, these look quite natural on my eyes, and just bring a nice amount of emphasis to them. Since the design isn't too colorful, they look pretty much the same in all lighting.

I really like the emphasis these lenses give to my eyes, and the design is quite nice for everyday wear.
These aren't the most comfortable of my lenses however, and they dry out my eyes quite quickly. If you carry eye drops this shouldn't be much of a problem, but I don't really carry drops with me so it's not the most convenient for me. I like the design, but would only be able to wear them comfortably for a couple of hours (which is probably a good thing, because you're not supposed to wear circle lenses for a very long time).
Here are more photos of how the lenses look~ (I did try slightly more Halloween-ish makeup haha)

(and some photos of the outfit- I made the skirt myself~)

On the whole these are nice lenses, I just wouldn't wear them for a very long time.
Thank you for reading!
Have a lovely day~
