Kirei Pink Lens Review {Klenspop Sponsored}~

Hi everyone!
I hope January has been treating you well~ Sorry about not writing for a little while- I started up classes again a few weeks ago and so it has taken me a little while to get used to things.
Today I have a circle lens review! Gosh I feel like it's been forever since I've done one of these ;^;
Today I'll be reviewing the Kirei Pink lenses, which were kindly sent to me for review by Klenspop! They're a fantastic circle lens supplier, and I highly recommend them if you're looking for a place to get lenses~
Anyways, let's start!

I'm really quite fond of the design of the 'kirei' lens series! I've reviewed them before in the blue colourway, and I think they're just so striking! The dark band around the outside makes the lenses stand out a lot on your eyes, however they don't feel too unnatural- because of the yellowish ring on the inside, they blend quite well with my hazel eyes! The design diameter of these lenses is 14.8 mm, which isn't massive, but it's still a fairly enlarging size. 
Here is how they look on my eyes~
Natural light
W/ Flash (sorry that it turned out so overexposed ;^; )

Dim room lighting
I really like that the pink shows up so well on these lenses! I originally got these because I wanted to do a Madoka Kaname cosplay, but then I realized I had no motivation to cosplay and so I ended up not doing that ;^; I still think they're very nice lenses nonetheless!
These are very comfortable as well! My eyes are quite sensitive, however I was able to wear these for a number of hours without having any discomfort. 
On the whole, I'm quite happy with these lenses! I think the design is very pretty- it's striking without being too artificial, if that makes sense. I highly recommend these, whether you're looking to use them for a cosplay, or just for everyday wear when you want to enhance your eyes~
Here are a few more photos of them on, just so you get the general idea of how they look~

Thank you for reading!

2016 in Review and 2017 Resolutions~

Hi everyone!
Happy New Year~
I'm writing this post a bit later than I intended- I just got lazy haha.
Today I thought I'd review the resolutions from last year, write about if I met them or not, and set some new ones for this upcoming year~
Let's start!

2016's Resolutions

No. 1: Go Cruelty Free
There were several parts to this resolution- I wanted to buy from companies that were cruelty free, eat less meat, and I wanted to stop supporting companies that used sweatshop labor. I'd say I was quite successful with this, for the most part! I honestly haven't purchased that much makeup/skincare this year, and I've been shopping a lot at LUSH- they pride themselves in being cruelty free so I think they're a great company to support (and they have fantastic skin care). I don't eat meat frequently- I'm by no means a vegetarian, but in general I do prefer my meals to not have meat unless it's something quite special, if that makes sense. 
As for shopping, this year the vast majority of clothing I purchased was second hand! Whether it was from a thrift store, vintage store, or through apps like depop, a lot of things I've bought have been previously owned. I think buying second hand is a great way to get unique items, and you end up spending less as well~ I've also been selling a lot of my clothes as well, so if you're interested, here's the link to my depop~
Overall I think I did really well with this resolution! Of course there's always room for improvement, but I'm quite satisfied with the progress I've made~

No. 2: Cosplay!
Lol this one was a complete failure- I realized cosplay just isn't something I'm dedicated to- and that's okay~

No. 3: Lose Weight
Another resolution which was quite a success~ I've lost about 30 lbs, so I'm quite content~ Not much to say about this ;u;

No. 4: Work More on my YouTube
Throughout the year I really neglected my YouTube, but recently I've been posting more often so I guess it's okay? 

2017's Resolutions

Honestly, there really isn't anything specific I want for this upcoming year ;u; I just want to keep going on the same track I've been going on with my previous resolutions. More weight loss and more work on my YouTube~

Thank you for reading! 
I hope you have a happy 2017~
What are your resolutions for this year?
