Last month, I realized every pair of circle lenses I owned had expired, so I had to throw them all out. I've had some bad times with wearing old/bad contacts, and since I quite like being able to see out of both my eyes, I did a group order with my friends to get some new ones!
This GO-round (haha, get it?), we decided to try Candylens.com because they were having a BOGO sale for Chinese New Year.

For this order, I grabbed a pair of blue lenses and a pair of green ones! I wanted lenses that were a bit more universal so I tried to find pairs that would match the majority of my coords. Usually, when I buy lenses, I go for really vibrant colors, but my blue pair ended up being a lot more toned down.

Friendly word of advice: wearing two different pairs of contacts in the same day is a horrible, terrible, awful idea lmao. I don't know why I do these things to myself, haha. I now understand exactly how Kennie J.D. (K-Beauty vlogger) felt during her circle lens video. If you haven't seen it, you can check it out here!
I fully admit that I didn't wear these lenses for anywhere near as long as the other pair. Mostly, I just wanted to check out the color and see how it looked together with a coord. These lenses were a pleasant surprise because I didn't expect the green to show up the way that it did! Out of the two pairs I ordered, I really thought this pair would be more subtle, and I learned quickly that I thought wrong.

I'm pretty happy with my purchase and my experience with Candylens.com! I'm especially happy that they were so quick to reply to my customer service e-mail and send us out another lens completely free after they made a mistake. I would buy from them again, so they get a 7 out of 8 from me! Great job, Candylens! Check out their entire catalog of lenses and accessories with this link.
Chiffon Crop Blouse

I saw this blouse while searching for some some Lolita shoes on Ebay, and give that it was only $27, I figured I'd give it a shot. At best, I'd love it, and at worst, I'd hate it and have to sell it, like I've done with those other crop blouses.

Well, as fate would have it, I. LOVE. THIS. BLOUSE. I want one in every color! It's so comfortable and it fits so well. And the shipping was crazy fast! I ordered my blouse on Monday, Feb. 26th, and the package arrived by Friday, March 2nd.

While I won't say that this blouse is "brand quality", it's certainly on par with many of the other cropped blouses out there. My favorite part about it is the sleeves, though I was a little disappointed to find that they aren't tied with actual drawstrings. Boooooo, T_T

You can grab this blouse from Ebay shop design_planet here. Make sure that you're ordering from the listing that has a faster estimated shipping time, otherwise, it could take several weeks.
That's all for my purchases this week! Have you ordered anything new recently? Talk to me about it in the comment box below!
I have more stuff ordered, and a convention in two weeks, so expect some more posts coming your way! Thanks for reading and I'll see you next time, <3
Stay beautiful, stay true,
