☆ Little Outfit Post #6

Hello lovelies!

Thought I would post an outfit on here since it's been a while, the weather is finally picking up and although i'm actually not a fan of overly hot weather it's nice to finally not have to go out in jacket + coat 


I recently bought this suspender skirt from Taobao, it's really cute and goes with a lot of my clothing but the straps are separate and you have to tie/fasten them on and adjust to your height, which i find really irritating. I like to just pick something up and wear it right away haha. I've been shopping on Taobao more than anywhere lately they have some adorable things!

Choker: Taobao
T-Shirt: Milklim
Skirt: Taobao
OTK Socks: Primark
Shoes: Offbrand


obligatory face post

Winged ring is from Primark & Teddy ring was from a friend

Hope you all have a great week!

☆ Lensvillage - Vassen iFairy Missy Rose Violet Review

Hey lovelies!

I have a gorgeous pair of lenses for review today, sent to me by the lovely people over at Lensvillage. I quickly spotted these beautiful purple lenses and fell in love. I have wanted a purple pair for a while now and these looked the whole package - beautiful colour, good enlargement, plus a little different to standard lenses with the unusual rose-like pattern.

My Order

Lensvillage confirmed my order 8th March and i received my package on 20th March. So shipping is around 2 weeks! Many other websites i've used are 3-4 weeks sometimes even more so i'm very happy with the shipping time



The vial design for these is really cute which made me want to wear them right away, but i had to leave them to soak in solution overnight I can already see the vibrancy!


as well as the lenses they provided me with a pink case, instructions and care for the lenses and a card for their Instagram contest

Review




Colour/Design: 4/5 - I am thoroughly impressed with the colour, they are such a pretty shade of purple/violet and i can imagine them looking good with any style. The design is also quite unusual, there is a swirly rose pattern on the inner part of the lens which makes your eyes look so much more interesting. Personally would like them to cover a little more of my eye colour but that's just me

Enlargement: 5/5 - being 15mm in diameter there is noticeable enlargement and they really do make your eyes stand out. My eyes appear much bigger than usual so no complaints there

Comfort: 5/5 - These lenses really are comfortable. I've worn them twice now for a full day and they've not made my eyes sore or watery once. It doesn't feel like i'm wearing lenses at all

Overall: 4.5/5 - I really like these lenses, i'm so impressed with the gorgeous colour and design. The only downside for me is my natural eye colour still being on show which is a personal annoyance for me, i've noticed this doesn't happen with everyone though and it also depends on your preferences. These are a beautiful pair of lenses and i would recommend them to anyone wanting a good violet/purple pair.

Have you tried any new circle lenses lately? What did you think of them?

☆ Weekend Adventure With Waifu

Hey lovelies!

So Sarah stayed over a couple of weekends back, I was still recovering from what i thought was a tooth infection at the time which later turned out to be a skin infection - and the strong antibiotics i was on made me quite weak but we did manage to go out and do things which was nice! I would much rather go out than sit indoors and feel sorry for myself anyway

Sarah arrived just after midday and i met her at the train station with lots of hugs ~ it had been such a long time since i saw her, our last time together was her birthday in November. it also felt much longer than that

After the eventual sorting our things out and relaxing for a while we ventured to the shop to get lots of snacks as we were starving, we were planning to order Chinese later on but didn't know when that would be plus we would need munchies for the later movie watching



I was surprised to spot her carrying a huge box containing belated birthday presents since at out last meeting she forgot to bring them, quite amusing considering it was a week or so away from my... half birthday? I absolutely love her gifts they are always the best. I got Clear's Jellyfish, some Japanese snacks, Amoyamo Eyelashes (which are amazing btw) Dollywink eyeliners, a Mac lipstick and this really cute sheer jumper! Thank you waifu!!



We ate Chinese food and relaxed on the Friday, it's been forever since I had Chinese and it was absolutely delicious


On the Saturday we went to Birmingham! This was my outfit

Necklace: H&M
Jacket: Kokokim
T-Shirt: Primark
Skirt: Hellcatpunks
Stockings: Taobao
Shoes: Taobao


I didn't do too much with my makeup because I was still feeling a bit ~meh~ but i tried my new lashes out and i love them!


Waifu & I




I decided to take Sarah to Char Wallah since i went there recently with a few friends and it's such a chilled atmosphere, the staff recognised me and asked why the people i'm with are always 'dressed up' haha. I explained we always dress this way because it's the fashion style we like. It was nice they remembered me though and they even poured our tea for us. Yay for special service!

My tea was called 'Mango and Friends' it was super delicious and obviously very... mangoy?

We looked around a few shops including Forever 21 which we were quite disappointed by, all the sale items were the wrong sizes for us and i was really hoping i could pick up a new skirt. We also stopped by at Selfridges to both browse the makeup stalls and for dinner at Yo! Sushi


I ordered Teriyaki chicken & Inari sushi as well as having a few others off the belt, i was tempted to try the Big Hero 6 bento but it didn't look very filling (even though it was extremely cute)


After lunch we headed back to the makeup counters where i got chatting to a guy that works at Illamasqua. I had a tester done of the rich liquid foundation which i have wanted to try for forever now and i was instantly sold! It was a little pricey and i literally never spend that much on makeup /forever budget buyer/ but i figured just this once i could treat myself. I may review it at some point.


and here are my gets for the day! I didn't actually buy too much for once, Krispy Kreme is obviously a necessity and i couldn't resist this bargain makeup palette. I'm still in two minds about the Illamasqua foundation though i honestly don't think it suits my skin at all? I've invested in a foundation brush, primer, makeup setter, powder... even BB cream to mix with it and get it working with my skin but nope it just looks flaky as heck 

Saturday evening was spent watching a movie and eating leftover Chinese which is now my favourite thing ever (no shame)


It was time for Sarah to go back on Sunday around 4pm! We spent the morning watching tv and chatting, we also did each other's makeup which was quite interesting as we've never really done it before. Sarah's turned out much better than mine as i didn't take note of the fact she has uber sensitive skin and practically burned her eyes with an eyeshadow overload. Sorrrrry ;__;

I don't usually wear this style of eyeliner and never bronze eyeshadow! I do really like this look on me though, she did a great job


This was my outfit!

Hair Bow: Forever 21
T-Shirt: Listen Flavor
Bracelets: Taobao, Fuzzymoon, H&M
Skirt: Hellcatpunks
Socks: Taobao
Shoes: Taobao


It sucks that we didn't get a lot of time together but work and responsibilities and ~boring adult shiz~ blah

Can't wait to see her again for Hyper Japan!


Hope you're all having a lovely week so far, i have a few reviews coming up and i never thought i would say this but i'm super into makeup lately? I've always been more of a fashion person but you may be seeing more makeup related posts from me in the upcoming future
