My First Swap with Manda31409 ♥ (Picture Heavy)




Hello hello! I'm here today with something very new and very fun! A little while back I did a package swap with my lovely friend Manda31409. I quickly fell in love with Manda after discovering her Youtube Channel. The main thing that drew me to Manda's channel was of course, My Little Pony  videos, but what made me adore her content was the overflowing positivity and kindness. I am so lucky to have her as my friend! 


In case you didn't know, I absolutely love Hot Cheetos. When I opened the box and had seen this I was literally so happy/excited! You'll see as I get further into this post but, Manda knows me so well!



She also sent me a few of these adorable Wet 'n Wild pastel makeup brushes! They're so beautiful and aesthetically pleasing I haven't used them yet... aha they're too pretty! I'm sure I will try them out sometime, though!





Manda also sent me a Physician's Formula Highlighter and Mood Boosting Blush! The packaging of both these products is so beautiful! I also love the little compartment that holds a matching applicator brush. I loved these so much that I looked them up online for when I run out and they're really inexpensive which is amazing!




I love Milani Lipsticks so much. The packaging is so pretty and the quality is really nice especially for the price! This is such a pretty shade, too. Milani has a lot of really pretty shades that I want to try! After getting this beauty I'm tempted to buy a couple~ So good.



More lippies! *heart eyes* because you can never have too many lip products, right? I actually haven't used these products yet, but I'm so exited to try them! I've heard such good things about both of these brands/products so, I'm excited to give them a try!


I DONUT Care! Cute pink hand sanitizer. Smells soooo good and is so very cute! I loooove!



Ahhhh! Crybaby gel liner from Colourpop! this color is so pretty and even the swatch is pretty. I can't get the pigment to show on my lid very well, though. I'm going to try a creamy white eyeshadow as a base to see if I can get more pigment. Either way, this color is absolutely adorable as well as the packaging. It's also named after one of my favorite albums... CRYBABY! Cuuuute! ♥




All of the smaller items were put in little makeup bags which also contained many cute stickers. Such a sweet idea. ♥


So many pony stickers! These 3D stickers are my absolute favorite. I need to think of some cute places to stick these cuties. Any ideas? Hehe



This is an adorable My Melody stationary set. I love love love My Melody and I love cute stationary. This is such a sweet gift that will also allow me to give back and write cute little letters to my friends! 




I recently began collecting My Little Ponies and Manda was sweet enough to send me a Pinkie Pie pony! I think it's so sweet how I now have a little piece of her collection in my own. ♥



Plush Hello Kitty Pez dispenser?! I've never seen a plush pez dispenser before. This is literally the cutest thing ever! It's also a keychain which is really adorable. I love this so much!


More Snacks! I've actually tried this before and it looked better on the box, that's for sure! But it's so cute and really fun to make, especially with friends. If you haven't tried making Kracie Popin' Cookin' you should try it for fun!




Another one of my favorite Sanrio characters is Little Twin Stars! They're so pastel and adorable I love them so much. This Little Twin Stars keychain is EVERYTHING! ♥ ♥ ♥


I love scrunchies so much they give off such a retro vibe that I adore. Plus My Melody?! Yes, please! So so cute. Mint green is my favorite color as well so this is just perfect.



I literally wanted to cry actual tears when I saw this! I've been wanting a larger purse and I am so in love with this. It has all the luxury space I need without compromising any of the cuteness that fits my style. This is my favorite thing out of the whole swap though I really loved everything and it really showed me how well we have gotten to know each other in such a short time. It really just warms my heart, ♥

As always, thank you so much for reading. I really hope you enjoyed this post. Much love, ♥

Lens Flavors Circle Lens Review ♥

Hello cuties! A lovely store called Lens Flavors have sent me a pair of circle lenses to review for you all! Lens Flavors is a new-ish circle lens store that offers various lenses in different colors, styles, and prescriptions. The one way that Lens Flavors differs from other circle lens stores is, they offer free worldwide shipping! No minimum purchase or coupon is required.*


The package itself took about 2-3 weeks to arrive. This is what arrived in the package. The contents itself were well protected with foam so, nothing was harmed or damaged during shipping. That's good news! I'm going to explain what each of these items are and how to use, and care for them.



Here is an accessory that came with my lenses. You basically get two velcro looking patches in a pack. You can use them to keep your hair out of your face when washing your face or doing your makeup. They come in many colors and are very helpful if like me, you have bangs and need to keep your hair out of your face. 



The lenses came in little glass bottles. Each bottle contains temporary solution and one circle lens. You will need to purchase all purpose contact lens solution for your lenses. It's pretty inexpensive, about $7-$8 per bottle which can last several months. You also need contact lens solution not only to soak your lenses, but to clean them as well. Clean lenses are very important so that you do not damage your eyes!

As you can see, the lenses are available in prescription. You can receive your contact lens prescription from your optometrist. Each bottle is clearly labeled to avoid any confusion which is helpful! These bottles are tricky to open so, allow me to explain how to open them.


There is a little arrow on the rim of each bottle. You are going to push upward.


Once you push up, your bottle should look like this. Then you're going to grab the lid and twist it around the top in a clockwise motion,


This part can be tricky and doesn't always work. If you have trouble, you can use a pair of scissors to remove the seal.then remove the rubber top. You can also look on youtube for videos showin how to open a circle lens bottle which might be more helpful!



This is the contact lens case that my lenses came with. It looks like a cute little macaron! The "L" on the front is meant to show which is the left, and which is the right. They're also labeled on the inside which is helpful if you have a prescription, like me, If you don't, no worries then! I have filled each side with all purpose contact lens solution. Before wearing, please allow your lenses to soak for at least 8hrs so that they can properly hydrate.

Lens / No lens

When looking for a new pair of lenses, I wanted something very subtle, and natural looking. The lenses I am wearing are Geo Fresh Brown. On the left, I am wearing lenses, on the right I am not. As you can see, it is very close to my natural eye color. (ps. sorry my eyelash was starting to come off ; n ; ) They're extremely comfortable, very natural and beautiful!




Description

Diameter: 14.2mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Usage: 1 year disposal
Includes: One pair of lenses and macaron lens case

Prescription: 0.00 ~ 10.00

Circle lenses are not like regular contact lenses. They can only be worn for up to 8 hours at a time and cannot be worn daily. Follow these instructions for the best care of your eyes. You can find more information on lens wear and care here"




These lenses are so natural looking and exactly what I wanted! I can hardly feel them when wearing and felt no irritation or dryness. I would highly recommend these lenses to new and experienced users. It is a smaller size lens which can be easier to apply and comfortable to wear. I give these lenses a complete 10/10!

Please do be sure to check out this circle lens store and the lenses they have to offer.


Thank you so much for reading. Much love and happy shopping!
