Where Have I Been?!

Hello everyone! It's been a month since my last blog post and I've received some messages on my Facebook page asking me where I've been and what have I been up to? Well today I've decided to finally update my blog because I have a bit of free time to spare...

I had so many blog posts lined up for May2015 yet didn't manage to publish any of them due to time constraints and a lot of things happening in my personal life... It all started last April2015... I've been having several health issues that I needed to attend to immediately. That was a major reason why I haven't been posting anything on this blog. I'm currently working on a blog post explaining the health scare I went through in the hopes that this opens up your eyes to the importance of taking care of yourself.

Another reason for my absence were my classes for my masteral degree. As most of you know by now, I'm a nurse by profession and have been trying to complete all my academic requirements for my masteral degree classes before I take my big comprehensive exam and move onto my thesis making... I've been having classes since May 04 and until recently have been swamped with school requirements.

May has also been a busy month for my lil online bakeshop Sugar Works. I've been dealing with several orders that are a bit more complex than my usual pineapple upside down cake. In case you're from Zamboanga (hello ZC readers!) please check out my page and support a local baker! *wink*

I'll be cutting this post short for now but expect a new blog post about my health experiences very soon!

Review : LensVillage's Barbie Luna Brown Circle Lenses

It's been such a long time since I last updated. So many things have been happening in my life that I needed to prioritize first. Most of which concerns my personal health BUT I'm saving that for another lengthy update post. Today I'll be talking about something that got me really excited when I first received it. A few months ago I was invited to become a LensVillage ambassador and was so lucky to receive this wonderful pair of circle lenses. It's been such a long time since I last reviewed a pair so this got me really pumped up!

What I Like :
Color & Design - I'm very partial to brown lenses because I think its the color that flatters me the most. This particular pair comes in a three tone pattern that blends well into my dark eyes but still gives off the appearance that I'm wearing circle lenses. I also love the fact that it doesn't have such a harsh outer ring like most circle lenses. At least I don't look like an alien lizard with these on.
Enlargement - At 15.00mm this is a rather large pair for my liking but it doesn't look overly huge on my eyes. I'm pleased at how it gives off just a "subtle" but noticeable doll-like quality to my eyes. Big enough to get noticed at first glance!
Comfort - I wore this pair for 4-5 hours without any problems. They are lightweight and easy to handle. It's definitely an easy pair for first time users to try out.

What I Don't Like :
Not available locally. Luckily LensVillage carries this design and a whole lot more!

PHOTOSSSSSSS of me wearing these lovely lenses!!!
