Quick Update + Giveaway News + OOTDs

Hey! Still alive (mostly). Here is a post that is not a lens review. Again. (Sorry!)  Hope I'm not boring you all. ♥

 (My face when Blogger won't publish this post properly)

Okay, first order of business? CHECK OUT MY SISTER'S BLOG!! :D  She finally made one and I cannot wait to see where she goes with it next. She is one of the most creative people I have ever met (in about every arena), smart, and an extremely sharp dresser to boot. She's super-sweet and you'll love her-- I promise!

So yeah.  GO SEE HER BLOG, Y'ALL~.

Secondly, as I stated earlier, I am (sort of) alive, still. I got over my awful cold, but my body has moved on to new adventures.  That is, I've been having dizzy spells lately. (I generally have low blood pressure, as does my brother, but neither of us has ever had this symptom.)   My diet's what it always has been, and the only thing I'm doing differently is waking up 2 hours earlier for school.

I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday, so hopefully I'll find an answer then.

P.S. Yes, I started school again, and I'm commuting. So I have, like, 10 hour days, now. Ew. Blogging time has been reduced~.

Giveaway News

I am putting together my first (independently-run) giveaway! Actually, it will be two of them, technically: one based on this blog, and the other based on my YouTube.

The lenses have already been purchased, but I still have many other items to find (H&M and F21 are fun to browse, though~). *wink*

5 July

Went shopping on a hot day (96° F/ 35° C)!  Had to buy shorts and tops to wear on vacation and look for a semi-formal dress to wear to my grandfather's 80th birthday party. :] (Found the dress at F21. ♥)  I wore makeup (and lenses), which is rather rare.

19 July

Ran boring errands: had to return a purchase at Macy's, pre-order Assassin's Creed 3 (fawk yeahhh), and pick up a check.

 31 July

Went to PennDOT (the 'DMV') to renew my expiring state ID. (Yes: I have no driver's license. I keep forgetting to take the driver's test before my learner's permit expires. Oops...) Boring outfit, I know~.

24 August

(Sorry for the bad lighting: this was later in the evening.)

Mother took me out for Friday dinner (at Bertucci's). C:  Ah-- and that's the same necklace I wore in the first OOTD. Just so ya' know~.

The Return (I'm alive! Mostly...)

(Vacation feet~.)

So I am, in fact, back!   :D

.... I am also very sick.  D:   (Rebounding, though!  My voice is back, and my asthma isn't trying to kill me [too much].)

For those of you who don't speak to me IRL or see me on FaceBook, you may not have known where I jetted of to. That would be Jamaica!

My mum and I flew down for my grandfather's 80th  birthday party. Because that's where my family is from. Jamaica. (No really! I was born there, actually.)  So yeah: friends & cousins & aunties & uncles & one set of grandparents still live there.

Mummy and I spent a few days at my grandparents' house in Highgate, St. Mary, and then drove down to 'Ochie' (Ocho Rios-- in St. Ann) for the rest of our stay. (More family-- including my brother-- flew in and joined us at a villa.)

As always, we had a great time, and I got a great tan. (Seriously- I'm, like, 5 shades darker. Haha.)

Would you lot care for a 'vacation photo-post'? It would be 90% pictures and not too much text.  Anyway, I have quite a few posts planned: first is a lens review!

I MISSED YOU GAIZ. ; _ ;  (Followers, bloggers, lurkers, and all. C: )  So here, have a pic of me hanging out with my brother's girlfriend~.


Review: Prodigurls Burberry Grey

Hey! I'm leaving in about 4 hours for the airport, so I figure now is the time to post this review! xD  Sooooo the lenses featured herein were ever-so kindly sponsored by Apple of Your Eyes (aka. Serenity Shop)!

Enlargement: 8/10  These are in the 14.5~15 mm range and enlarge pretty decently. The look like they are maybe 14.7 mm or so~.

Colour/Design: 8/10  The Burberry Grey is a fairly light grey-- in daylight, anyway. It actually looks lighter on video/in photos than in real life, perhaps. The design is fairly natural and is reminiscent of the popular 'Pure/Max Pure' design that G&G/Dueba and EOS (and other brands) make.

- EOS Dollyeye Grey vs. Prodigurls Burberry Grey -

Comfort: 9/10  So far, these Prodigurls series are super comfortable. :3

All in all, the best way I would describe these lenses as 'soft', or perhaps 'sweet'.  The design is not extreme, but has a fairly noticeable colour. So yeah, these are not precisely subtle, but they are a good example of a 'visible but natural' circle lens. o: I know I like these pretty lenses, but do I love them?...

And here are the extra pics, as usual: One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, and Eight.
You can watch the video review here on Youtube, or view it below.

(Herp derp: my video stills are SO awkward! Ugh~)
