Firmoo Glasses o.o

I was contacted my Firmoo to review a pair of their prescription glasses.
I think barely anyone I know in the virtual world, know that I have trouble
seeing at a distance :( My eyesight isn't horrible... you'll just seem a bit
blurry to me from 5 metres away >> so I wear glasses for driving and for
school, when I need to see presentations at a distance.

Firmoo ships to most parts of the world and you can also get your first pair FREE!
Who wouldn't like free glasses? you do have to pay for the shipping though, but
still... sounds pretty good to me. I remember having to pay quite a bit for glasses
when I was younger, even though some of it was covered by my parent's insurance.
Since I am older now, I don't really get much benefits :(

If you know anyone who needs a pair or likes to have a variety of styles, then this
would make a very nice gift as well. They have a variety of styles to choose from
on their website. You can also upload a photo of yourself to see what they might
look like on you before ordering :)

I've always had the typical rectangular framed eye glasses, so I wanted something
different and a bit 'fashionable' at the same time :p

You can view the glasses I bought here :) They're only $8!
They are super lightweight and sturdy, much lighter than
the ones I have used in the past. I know it's because of the
materials, but I was surprised at how light these glasses were.
They also came with a pouch and a hard case.

BONUS POINTS for actually sitting on my nose! lol :p
I've always had trouble with glasses falling down, especially
the ones that don't have the nose pads, so yay :) Well, not that
these don't ever slide down, but they sit nicely when I'm still.

Sorry for this awkward photo, but I genuinely dislike how I look with glasses on lol

I've been taking some vitamins, mainly for my teeth. Ever since I started drinking less
milk, I'm not getting much of vitamin D. My teeth aren't the healthiest and I notice spots
that may indicate my lack of a certain vitamin/nutrient. I decided to try taking vitamins :p
Instead of buying pills, I wanted something I would enjoy taking lol :p The chocolate one
is actually pretty tasty :) I've been taking them for a bit over 3 months now... not sure if I
can really tell the difference, but I'll be finishing these nonetheless.

I keep this extra little tin with my vitamins in my handbag :p

Yay! I finally received my order, after 2 weeks ><
I ran out of my toner and night time serum, so I am very relieved now :p
I'll be doing a review on the glycolic cleanser and the vitamin c serum,
after about 2 months of using them :) I am excited to try these 2 products!
The Thayers rose petal witch hazel toner is now my go-to :)

I also have a personal code where you can save $10 when you spend $40+
on your first order! or $5 off any orders under $40 :p

They also gave me some little extras:

Just a short little post to share my excitement and the products I purchased :p

Happy Halloween!

Colour: OPI 'Pirouette My Whistle"
Design: Konad Image Plate M57
Design Colours: Konad Special Polish in white, pink, orange
Top: Konad Top Coat

Well... this is going to be a pretty lame Halloween post >>
I was going to do my nails (Halloween themed of course), but I am not going to make an excuse :p
I'm just not feeling Halloween this year for some reason, not that I ever really have after the age
of 12/15. I think I've only been to a Halloween party once or twice >< I don't dislike Halloween...
not at all, I guess I just don't have enough friends who really celebrate it ><

But I honestly would like to go to a nice Halloween party, where I could dress up and eat
Halloween inspired foods, and watch a not so scary movie :p but still Halloween related >>
If I had my own place, I would definitely go all out and decorate the exterior of my house :p
I remember decorating my Barbie house when it was Halloween when I was younger, haha

My family doesn't do much, we still hand out candy, except this year... my mom decided to
leave some candy out by the door... which kind of defeats the purpose of Halloween ><

I have 2 reviews coming up! I'll be doing a review on the Suki Pure Balancing Day Lotion :)

Here's a cute one for you :p

I bought these cute earrings from eBay (seller rubyruby76)

one year older

So, it was my birthday yesterday :D
I went shopping with one of my close friends and found some good deals :p
Tops (left to right):
- Old Navy
- H&M
- Suzy Shier
 They were all in the sale section :)

I also picked up a few pairs of earrings from Forever21... I just couldn't put
them down because they're too pretty >< especially the 2nd pair below <3>

I also picked up 2 mini candles from Bath & Body Works.
I bought the new Autumn and Autumn Day candle.
I like the Autumn Day candle more... I should have gotten a pumpkin
scented candle instead of the Autumn one. I still like it though, but I
guess I should have went with something a bit different in terms of scents :p

Hollace Cluny / Furniture Design

I recently visited a lovely interior/furniture design shop downtown Toronto.
Hollace Cluny is located near Rosedale station for all you Torontonians :p
I had to go to a few furniture design shops throughout the city, discovering
and looking at new designs for research. Here are just some snapshots from
my visit to the store. The staff were extremely friendly and willing to help!

I've seen this light fixture in Dwell magazine.
I'm pretty sure this is by Lindsey Adelman. They had another piece by her
on the first floor, which was interesting as well, but I couldn't really get a
nice photo of it alone >< It's called the 'Clamp Lamp' if you're interested :p

I fell in love with this white marble console table, then I touched it...
and fell in love LOL :p I love the smooth texture and the marble design.

This lovely lighting piece was placed above the stairs to the second floor <3 p="p">It was a bit too high for me to see the designer/price >< :( should have asked!
Even the texture of the wall is lovely :p
Hope you guys enjoyed this random most :p

Naruko Defense BB Sunscreen SPF50++++

I've been looking for a sunscreen with a higher SPF.
I wanted something with a light coverage and if you have
clear to good skin, then this BB sunscreen is for you. This
BB Sunscreen will not cover any post acne marks. I noticed
that it helped to control the oil on my face throughout the day.
This makes a great primer and sunscreen in one. It also helped
to even out my skin a little, making it seem a bit brighter.

This sunscreen will probably only work for fair-light skin tones.
It has a pink tint and is a bit watery at first (Aqua being the first
ingredient in the product). The coverage is very sheer... only you
would notice the difference :p

It comes in a small and slim tube, which is great for travel.
I don't like products that are bulky and huge with only 30ml
of product >< they take up room and is sometimes unnecessary.

Will I buy this again?
Maybe in the summer... I'm still trying to look for a more natural option,
with more physical sunscreen as to chemical sunscreens, but this is a pretty
good primer for my skin and have been loving it so far for the past 2-3 weeks :)

(Active) Zinc Oxide 2.5%, Ethylhexl Methoxycinnamate 2.5%, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane 1.2%, Benzophenone-3 1%
(Other Ingredients) Aqua, Tremella Fuciformis Extract, Phytoferulin (Kalanchoe Spathulata Extract), Glycyrrhiza Glabra
(Licorice) Root Extract, Scutellaria Alpina Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Peucedanum Ostruthium Leaf Extract, Ginkgo Biloba
Leaf Extract, Artemisia Umbelliformis Extract, Leontopodium Alpinum Extract, Epilobium Fleischeri Extract, Calendula
Officinalis Extract, Chamomila Recutita (Matricria) Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Narcissus Tazetta L.Var
Chinensis Roem, Aminopropyl Kojyl Phosphate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Butylene Glycol,
Polyquaternium-51, Polysaccharide, Hydrogenated Polysbotene, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Cetyl
Dimethicone, Magnesium Sulfate, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Sorbitan Olivate,
Methylsilanol Hydroxyproline Aspartate, Palmitic Acid, Menthyl Lactate, Tetrahydropropylene Diamine, Dimathicone,

Crosspolymer, Titanium Dioxide, Silica, Sericite (Mica), D-Glucono-1,5-Lactone, Sodium Benzoate, Ferric Oxide Yellow

Now that, is a heck load of ingredients -.-
