For the first time ever I’m going to review a pair of contact lenses!
A week or so ago I won a pair of Shiny Green (Puffy 3 tone) contact lenses from PinkyParadise. They just arrived in the mail today! With a few goodies 🙂
When it comes to lenses, I personally prefer realistic lenses ( green, blue, grey and brown) so naturally I chose Green. I have medium light brown eyes with a green circle around the eye, and green just so happens to be my favourite eye colour.
The Comfort level of these lenses are a 5/5, they are surprisingly easy to pop in considering their 14 in diameter. I don’t feel them moving around. No blurriness, or discomfort.
As a person that loves natural looking lenses these are a 4.5/5. The reason I gave 4.5 is that they are bigger than “most” lenses, making them look more doll like, which is the point of circle lenses. But since I have naturally small eyes, they pop out like crazy. Colour wise they are a perfect blend of 3 tones creating the perfect shade of green!
As for the shipping Time. They where shipped using global mail (10-20) days. I feel like they came in early, shipping was fast for basic shipping. If these where a pair that I had purchased, I would have chosen a faster shipping method because I’m an impatient person. But for something that was won in a giveaway they arrived right on time!
I’ve seen countless videos on YouTube about pinkyparadise’s products, and I must say the rave reviews are truly justified, and I would recommend these to all my friends and family.
Just for the heck of it pinky paradise snuck a few extra gifts in my parcel. ( I love them!)
Gift #1 was a pink hipo contact lens case. I purchased a case a few days ago, but honestly I like the hipo case much better, it’s strong and does not leak, and you have something to grip when you try to open the case, unlike the basic ones you buy at the pharmacy.
Gift #2 a cute pocket mirror, that I plan on using often.
Gift #3 a set of lashes. This is a really cool gift, it’s thoughtful and kind of them to include this. I love them, but I’m a guy. I’ve never had anything like this before, so either I’ll keep them for halloween or gift them to a lady friend who can use them.
Gift #4 I have no idea what these are called since I can’t read (Korean,I think) their a set of blue Velcro type things that you use to part your hair, or keep them out of the way while your styling your hair. I love this, and I laughed when my sisster used them on her extremely curly hair and they got stuck.
Overall PinkyParadise is just an awesome site, and their products are amazing. I will be shopping for more products (lenses, creams, and other goodies) I can’t wait to try them out and I hope you guys will to! Join them on Facebook, Twitter and tumblr! http://www.pinkyparadise.com
The Seasons Of The Heart
By: Jean-Phylipe Theriault
A cold heart,
Is like winter,
Waiting for the warm embrace of spring,
And the heat of summer.
A warm heart,
Is like summer,
Waiting for the cold embrace of the fall,
Shattering in the winter
A broken heart,
Is like spring,
Waiting to flower like a rose,
And rise like a phoenix.
I decided to write 3 little Haiku’s. It does not follow the traditional Japanese format, but for a specific reason. The heart never follows the same format. Love is a never-ending cycle of seasons. I was inspired by Becket a brilliant author, whom was holding a Haiku contest for an autographed copy of his work. I decided to elaborate my Haiku (俳句) and post it to my blog.
Philophobia: is the fear of being in love and falling in love. The risk is usually when a person has confronted any emotional turmoil relating to love in the past but also can be chronic phobia
I must admit that finding love, a true and great love is something that i’ve always wanted in my life. But when it comes to me, this quest comes coupled with a crippling fear of it. (i.e Philophobia )
I’ve been through a few dating websites in my short time in adulthood, and a select few men that i could see myself with for the rest of my life. Taking steps to meet them, date them and start a connection is hard for me. I’ve only ever seen 3 men, in a relationship/dating sense. Each time a connection is made, the guy starts to have feelings for me, and as soon as i can feel it, or they let me know…. BAM!! like someone slapping me a cross the face, Philophobia kicks in.
The worst part of it, is that in the perspective of these men, i’m leading them on, playing games. I seem cold, distant, uncaring. But in my perspective, its because i’m feeling something towards them, that i start to distance my self from them, in fear of love. And i cant seem to let them know.
My mother went out of her way to make sure that i know im loved, my father on the other hand wasnt part of the picture much in my life, and doesn’t express many emotions, its hard to even know what he feels. I have been loved, and loved others, but when it comes to dating, its a fault that i cant seem to shake.
This is something that i work on every single day. not in the sense that i try to connect with other. but in the way that i have to work on loving myself first. In the famous words of RuPaul ” If you cant love your self, then how in the hell are you going to love some one else.”
I wrote this to let people know, that this is a serious issue, and when a guy you love, that doesn’t seem to love you back, could possibly have this fear. and that you should try to understand it. For people like me, with this fear. its hard to give your heart away. And its even harder when your aware of the issues.
In my life, 21 years of life. I’ve only fallen in love twice. Once when i was just 14, with a very kind guy in the US. It was a long distance relationship that i had for a long while. And the second was when i was 19, with a handsome man. only i fell in love with him about much later. Strange that i never met him even though we lived in the same province, never spoke to him over the phone, and yett ive kept contact with for a long time since that time. I can’t tell if i love the person he is. or the ideal of him. In any event, ive never told him how i felt, nor will i ever. I haven’t been in a place in my life that im ready to start dating. No job, no place, no extra education, distance is an issue, family problems. and the list goes on.
When is the perfect time to start loving, and how can you get over this fear. These are things i constantly ask myself.
Dear readers of the blog,
As some of you know i had a youtube channel names TheRobinMonster <–Click. I use to upload videos of a comedic nature as well as some more serious ones. unfortunately my account got hacked a while back and my videos were delete. At the same time this happened my Camera broke and i was un able to replace them.
But now i have myself a fancy iphone 4s and from that im going to be uploading new Vlogs, and videos from it. Some about my novella children of the moon. Some about my life. and some just for laughs and giggle.
So i do hope you’ll follow me there and keep track with me.
This is a recipe that i came up with and have been using for years. Its my very favorite way to make banana bread. There are hundreds of ways to make it, and ive tried quite a bit of them until i found that mixing them together is a fun way to make one. I’m the type of guy that likes a thick, more cake like banana bread. Fluffy bread-like is nice, but not my favorite.
3 Large Ripe Banana’s (Frozen over night and defrosted) .
1 Large Egg.
4 table spoons of Grade A or B Maple Syrup ( Dark colored Maple Syrup. ~ not the cheap glucose syrup.)
Half Cup of Wall-nuts.
1 and a half cups of white flour.
1 cup of brown sugar.
1/2 Table Spoon Baking powder
1/2 Table Spoon Baking soda.
a pinch of salt.
2 Table Spoon of Vanilla Extract.
4 Table Spoon of Butter ( Room Temperature)
1 Large Teaspoon of Instant coffee grains.
In a bowl crush 3 defrosted Banana’s. Mix in the Vanilla, Syrup, Butter and Instant coffee until you create a paste. In a Different bowl Mix the flour, salt,brown sugar, baking powder and baking soda together. Add the Dry ingredients into the banana paste. Mix together with a fork until the paste thickens and there is no more dry ingredients. Add the walnuts.
Preheat oven to 350. Add mix into a greased little bread pan. Cook for 1hour. when there is 20mn left until the baking time is over. Coat the Banana Bread with Maple Syrup. This will create a crispy and sweet exterior.
Tip: A fun little trick, dice some walnuts, add to the top of the mix once in the pan. combines with the maple syrup added in the end. it makes an awesome combination.
