So I'm procrastinating on my homework and decided to look up some books to buy on Urban Outfitter's website. And somehow I stumbled upon this jewel of a painting. Call me crazy but I would definitely spent the $70 to hang this above my room. 
Just look at the man. He is a God. And I just can't. 
Adding this to birthday/Christmas wishlist. 

If one of you generous readers would like to buy me this painting (just kidding, but would be SERIOUSLY and overwhelmingly thankful) you can buy it --> here 

I also found this illustrated book of the band and UGH I just want it all. I'm so upset that the chances of me seeing Nirvana play live is completely impossible 
may Kurt Cobain RIP

Recently, Pinky Paradise was having a promotion for free shipping on all orders and being a bargain hunter, I took advantage of the deal. I ordered the EOS Candy in Pink and I never owned any pink lenses because I usually go for lenses that are a more "natural" color, like grey, brown and sometimes blue. So ordering a pair of pink lenses was kind of out of my "norm". But I've always wanted pink lenses and my favorite color is pink so I decided why not? And shipping was free so it was a win-win situation. 

So I ordered my lenses on September 19 and I received my lenses on October 14th. The package was sent to me through Global Mail, usually Pinky Paradise ships through FedEx, but I think I just wasn't paying attention when checking out and picked Global Mail shipping. I'm pretty sure if I picked the regular FedEx shipping, the lenses would've came to me a lot sooner. 
Anywho, the lenses come in glass vials like this along with a free contact case. 

This is what the lenses look like from the front of the lens and the back of the lens. There's a distinct difference between what the front and back look like so it won't be confusing trying to figure out whether or not your lenses were inside out when putting them on in the morning. 

It is recommended that you soak your lenses overnight before wearing them. Usually putting them on right after taking them out of the vials would lead my eyes to feel uncomfortable and the lenses would usually sting my eyes. This is usually due to the solution that the lenses are in while in the vials, I'm not completely sure if the solution inside the vials are any different from regular contact solution, but it's better safe than sorry so I would highly recommend to be patient and just let your lenses soak :)

So this is what the lenses look like with no flash and flash in fluorescent lighting .
The color is very opaque and obviously the lenses are not very natural looking.

Comfort:  3/5 
I've worn EOS Candy Lenses before in Grey and Brown and both were extremely comfortable to the point that I would sometimes forget I even had the lenses on. But for some reason these get very drying throughout the day and after 8 hours I start feeling a little discomfort from them. When I first put them in I was concerned that I may have gotten a defected left lens because it was just soooo uncomfortable to wear. However, it's been about a week since I've been wearing them and so far the lenses haven't given me that trouble. Although a little drying from time to time, EOS has always been my go-to brand for comfort and I can still go throughout my day wearing these lenses for 8 hours or so. 

Enlargement:  5/5
The lenses are 14.5 mm in diameter and are very enlarging. However, they're not like freakishly enlarging to where I look like an alien. The black ring around the lens, to me personally, makes the lens look a lot smaller than they actually are. However, I don't buy my lenses for enlargement but more for color. 

Color: 5/5
I love the color! It's the perfect pastel-y opaque pink. It looks great in photos and in real life. I get a lot of compliments from people whenever I wear them. And of course the pink color doesn't make it look natural in color.

Design: 5/5
The design is super simple and clean. Not too in your face which is usually what I go for and the way the pink gradually blends into your eyes is what I love about the Candy Series the most.

Overall: ♡ 4/5
Aside from the occasional discomfort and dryness, I absolutely love these lenses! I've always wanted pink lenses and I am very happy with these being my first pair of pink lenses 

Price: $22.90
Brand: EOS
Series: Candy 
Size: 14.5 mm in diameter
Base Curve: 8.8 mm
Life Span: 1 Year disposable

When I went to the Sam Smith concert the other day I found a new band to listen to as well. The Broods were the opening act to Sam Smith's show and I never felt goosebumps the way I felt goosebumps from watching their show. First off, I am a avid lover of bass and their bass during the show was INCREDIBLE. It shook my whole body and suffocated my chest. They are definitely a band worth seeing live.


This song "Four Walls" was one of the songs they performed and although very soft and slow, this was one of my favorite songs they performed. The lead singer's voice is just so angelic and I wish she could just sing me to sleep every night.



The Broods is a band from New Zealand and they recently just dropped their album "Evergreen" today. So if you're looking for a new band to listen to I would highly recommend you give them a listen!

Just got back from a total starstruck-life-goal-setting-bucket-list-check-off-ing-what-are-the-chances concert of the heavenly voice that is Sam mother f***ing Smith. Now let me just say that the chances of actually going to this concert FOR FREE were so slim. Prior to the week of the concert I had no idea Sam Smith was coming performing, nonetheless even going to be in the same town breathing the same air as me. But it all started when my friend Ariele and I carpooled to school the other day. The only album we had to listen to was Sam Smith's "In The Lonely Hour" and coming back from school and heading home, I was getting a bit tired of listening to the album (sorry Sam, I still love you though) so I decided to turn on the radio. And not to mention on the way back we were stuck in traffic for about 3-4 hours. But maybe that traffic was a sign from the Heavens saying "YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO THIS SHIT" because next thing you know, 106.7 was giving away tickets to the sold out Sam Smith concert! And I don't know what it is with Ariele's luck and contests, but she has a tendency to be chosen to win every single drawing she enters. And when I say every drawing/raffle/contest etc., I mean EVERY single one of them. Well...98% of the time I like to believe. But anywho, so seeing as to how my phone was dead I entered the contest using Ariele's phone because in my mind and with my logic, using her phone would increase the chances of us winning. So being stuck in traffic and not even remotely close to home, I texted the crap out of the radio station in hopes of winning. And I shit you not, the very next day Ariele got a phone call from the radio station saying we won the tickets! Like seriously?! I am not academically advanced in math nonetheless probability, but the chances of us winning was just insane! So even to this day I am still feeling the initial shock of actually winning the contest and seeing Sam Smith perform live.
I didn't get any good pictures as to not being allowed to bring any cameras with disposable lenses and whatnot, and also due to only having an iPhone 4 and it being not the best quality out there here's a picture my cousin took. We were sitting in the way back of the top balcony so it was kind of a hassle trying to see him when you're only 5 foot 2 and everyone in front of you is about 6 foot something lol

The concert over all was more than I could ever wanted. I love Sam so much and his voice live is just as heavenly as it is on his album. I would definitely see him live again in concert, not to mention his opening act The Broods.

Of course I couldn't leave the concert without a souvenir! I bought an autographed poster of Sam's face and a Tshirt for my boyfriend and for Ariele.
Again shout out to Ariele for giving the tickets to me and my cousin Leslie.
BEST early birthday gift everrrr

Still in shock. Can't believe I was in the same room as Sam. And I'm pretty sure my wallet is crying from how much I spent at the concert, but no regrets. I have to find a frame to hang Sam up. Can't wait for him to come back, if he is coming back. I will definitely be seeing him in concert again.
