Clearance Hunters

[Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I was compensated for the review, but all the thoughts and opinions I have expressed are my own.]

The sale is going on! Zalora is having a warehouse clearance right now. Let's say YAY while the paycheck is still fresh, I just couldn't hesitate myself from browsing all the stuffs they have. I think my online shopping skill has been upgraded ever since I shop a lot on the net.

Zalora Warehouse Clearance

Therefore, I want to share some of the tips to you:
  1. Fill your wishlist(s) as much as you want! They will regularly remind you if the product is still available.
  2. Use the filter on the sidebar. I find this very helpful because I prefer to only browse this favorite brands: Ezra by Zalora, Zalora, Zalora Basics *now you'll get why I love shopping at this place* Another trick is to set the price from the lowest.
  3. Check the size detail section and if the model's body type similar to you, then congrats, you only need to buy the same size as hers.
  4. Double check your address! It's important to put the zip code too. Nowadays I'm not always at home, I'd rather get it shipped to my office because it's safer and more convenient that way.
  5. Know your limit. Seriously, don't shop if you're broke, unless you want to starve the next day :P
Another reason to love online shopping is because when they arrive it feels like a present to me. HA! Besides it gives me a reason to live for another 2-3 business days.

Hope you guys get amazing stuff from the warehouse clearance!

Yours Sincerely

Happy Easter, dear bumblebees! Another circle lens I'll be reviewing, it's from Sincere Vision a.k.a the third largest colored lens brand in Japan. Oh, if I'm not mistaken, this should be my first Japanese circle lens I've ever worn. Just like the wise old sayings, it's never too late to try ;)

fairy 1day princess brown

So they recently launched daily disposable circle lenses collection called Fairy 1day, available in Natural and Princess just like their monthly disposable ones (well, minus Queen). I picked the Fairy 1day Princess collection in brown because I am in love with the design, I can foresee how it will suit my everyday's look, which I tend not to wear heavy makeup.

Pretty jewel design on the box.

review sincere vision fairy 1day

Specification of Sincere Vision Fairy 1day Princess:
Power Range: 0.00 ∼ -8.00
Diameter: 14.2mm
Base Curve: 8.7mm
Water Content: 38%
Lifespan: 1 day disposal

Design: 4 out of 5
I like how the design focused more on the outer corner of the lens. The large clear area on the center lets the natural eye color to be shown. Moreover, it has limbal ring for enlargement effect.

Enlargement: 5 out of 5
Its 14.2 mm diameter and bold limbal ring design is dramatic enough to give me an illusion of bigger eyes.

Comfort: 5 out of 5
Daily lenses never cease to amaze me. My eyes are a bit sensitive when it comes to new contact lens brand, especially when this lenses' water content is only like 38%. Surprisingly, it's just as comfortable as my other daily lenses.

Overall: I would love to wear this every day especially when I'm wearing a no-makeup-makeup kinda look. The design looks so natural even though they have their own daily natural collection. Anyway, I prefer this one as I love the limbal ring!

Price: USD 22.50 per 5 pairs

If only daily disposable lenses would cost the same as the monthly ones, I'd be forever attached to it LOLOLOL.

Let It Burn!

[Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I was compensated for the review, but all the thoughts and opinions I have expressed are my own.]

How are you, my bumblebees? Now that I'm a full time worker, it feels like I'm not exercising at all since most of the time I only sit in my cubicle (cause I'm still a noob), but hopefully I'll go out soon for visiting. I don't actually like exercising to be honest because it tires me LOL. However now that I'm older and my "body" changes, exercising is like the key for a healthier lifestyle.

The thing is it's difficult for me to be committed. There was once I only hit the gym for a month. So I came up with an idea to find something that would excite me to the gym, like a pair of new shoes, perhaps?

Working full time got me no much free time for shopping. On weekends, I'd rather spend it at home. That's why I love online shopping and this is a habit that I've had since I own a card in college.

As you might already realize, I've mentioned this before too that Zalora is one of my favorite online shopping destinations. Its shipping method is just practical, I could even choose the cash on delivery and there's such 30 days return policy.

Can't decide which one is cuter!

Anyhoo, what makes a pair of sport shoes attractive to you? Do you have any recommended brand? Lemme know!

Better Vision in Style

[Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I received the product for a review purpose, but the opinions are my own based on my experience.]

Hi sweet bumblebees! Yeeeees, so I'm back from Seoul, and it's great to be home reuniting with Jakarta's warmth. The trip was totally fun, I got snow, rain, plus loads of cosmetics. HA! Although I'm not gonna update a haul post because I tried to take a photo of it but the result sucked, a review of each interesting product will be coming up soon, for sure ;)

Anyway, this time I'm going to review circle lenses. It's been awhile since my last post about circle lens, right? I received a package from Ohmylens.com when I was away. I picked toric circle lenses as I have astigmatism on both of my eyes.

I have never once worn toric lenses before, nor I understand how to differ them from the regular ones. However, I did quite a research and finally understood how this lens works. On the site, they have many pretty design of toric lenses, even so at the end I picked gray colored lenses with the smallest diameter which is 14 mm because I love how natural this kind of lens will look like on my eyes.

All of toric lenses on Ohmylens.com are made to your prescription so that's why you will see handwritten on the bottle or the cap. For Neo Vision's toric lenses, the bottle sticker's default is axis 180, but if it's not 180, it will be handwritten by the manufacturer.

Neo Toric in gray review
All made to your prescription.

Well, just one thing that bothers me, I'm not sure what are these lenses made of, I couldn't find it on their website too. I even looked it up on the Neo Vision's site, yet I still didn't get a clue.

result ahene 3 color gray

Specification of Neo Vision Ahene 3 Color Toric:
Power Range: 0.00 ∼ -10.00
Diameter: 14.0mm
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Water Content: 42%
Lifespan: 1 year disposal

Design: 5 out of 5
The 3 tones design makes this lens looks gentle and since I picked the 14 mm diameter it certainly suits my small eyes. The green part looks more vivid in real life and somehow it doesn't look too fake. Instead, it shows a liveliness.

Enlargement: 5 out of 5
I wasn't expecting any enlargement to be honest with such diameter. To my surprise, the limbal ring of this lens enable enlargement in the most natural way.

Comfort: 3.5 out of 5
It will get dry in about around 4 hours, so I definitely need to use my eyedrops once in a while. Toric lens also feels a bit different from the regular ones, mine is flatter on the center and sort of stiff.

Overall: My first impression of toric lenses was just so good. Who knows we who suffer astigmatism now can wear circle lens too? I'm thankful that my astigmatism is considered mild so that's why I can still wear the regular lenses until now. Still, this kind of lens will be exceptionally useful for those who have severe astigmatism, but at the same time want to wear circle lenses and have better vision too.

Price: USD 60 per pair

What I really like more about the service from Ohmylens.com is the convenience about your order details from their website! They are considerate to give such a guide on how to open the bottle (even if you make a mistake, there's a solution on the guide) and of course, how to take care of the lenses. 

ohmylens.com reviewohmylens review
A very helpful guide indeed!

Last but not least, if you shop for more than USD 120, they will send your order by EMS (the fastest shipping method) with no charge! That's quite an interesting deal if you want to buy another pair of these toric lenses just in case.

Korean Beauty Wish List

Anyong dear bumblebees! I am so especially excited for February, a.k.a the month of love I suppose! The reason is..... *drumrolls* I'll be flying to Seoul in just a few days! Well, the thing is, I kinda picked a wrong date to travel because with lunar new year just around the corner, I heard some of the shops will close earlier. But... Please don't... According to the itinerary, I'm going to visit Yeoju Premium Outlets on the 19th (It's THE day), I love outlet shopping ya know, it saves a lot of money.

And then on the 20th, it's the cosmetic shopping's turn. I asked Filia if the shops would still open after Seollal, and she said the chances major stores open are bigger, but such place like Myeongdong would be less packed than usual. What a relief, right? Honestly I don't like the idea of shopping in a crowded place, so if there will be less people, it doesn't sound so bad then. Just as long as all the cosmetic shops are open! LOL.

Omona~ I can't waiiit~!

So here I created little collages of things I've been wanting to buy, I guess there would be a lot of unexpected purchases (I'm just that impulsive, fyi). It's okay anyway to spend more money when you travel overseas :P
