Princess Pinky Cloudy Light Brown Review

Hey readers! Let me first just say that I am so happy to announce that I got an offer with my dream job!  It may or may not be a secret but many may know or have an idea. :P  I will actually be taking on a couple of jobs by the end of this year and I'm both excited and nervous.  My friends know that I love to keep myself busy and that I totally loathe people who are lazy.  Although, I'm guilty of being lazy on my off days.  I hate myself for it.

Anyway, new beginnings blah blah blah.  I'm so ready to take on the challenges!

Diameter: 14.5mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Life Span: 1 year disposal
What inside: One pair of lenses and one macaron lens

I picked up a couple pair of lenses last month and I love this one in particular.  It's not so much of a thick border around the iris like most circle lenses.  It's very discreet and appears close to natural.  A lot of people have come up to me, curious about my ethnicity because of my "exotic" eye color.

The diameter of these are okay.  It does enlarge my eyes but I would've loved it to be a slight bit smaller but I love them nonetheless. They're very comfortable and stay moist for most of the day.

The side eye view of these are crazy cool!  I love the colors that these lenses pull from each angle.  

Finishing up my final days at my current job and will be taking a mini vacay to Maui.  I haven't been there in ages and I'm so excited!  A lot of locals think that traveling to outer islands is not a big deal since it's the same "Hawaii" feel.  For me, it's a great way to escape the city and really relax.  A stay cation but not quite. I'll be doing the most touristy activities ever and will share my experiences very soon!

Freshest Sushi in Town

I am the ultimate sushi whore.

I love sushi so much that the only two restaurant jobs I've had were both at sushi bars.  But then I realized I had a hard time serving something that I was so tempted to eat myself.

Fish appetizer
When anyone visiting or even locals ask me where I like to eat sushi, I always say Mitch's Sushi is the place to go.  I even recommend them to Japanese tourist!

Yuzu flavored iichiko exclusive to Hawaii.

The restaurant is located from the airpot just 5 mins away by car.  So, technically, you know that the fish is the most fresh you can get because it's delivered from the airplane daily in just 5 mins.  

I always get their chef's course (omakase) which comes with an appetizer, grilled fish, assorted sashimi and sushi and finished off with an awesome lobster miso soup.  I always opt out of the abalone set.  I still haven't developed an appreciation for it I guess. 

Some may believe the prices are a bit more than they are willing to pay but real sushi lovers will spend whatever it takes to get the best of the best.  And believe me, this is always a meal well spent.  

Assorted sashimi 

Grilled salmon belly

Assorted sushi

Lobster miso soup

Not included in the meal but I always love add-ons!  This Van van is the best :3

Can't have enough unagi

If you were to ask me what my favorite sushi was, it would probably be between uni or unagi.  The tastier (and I guess stinkier) the better for me!  

What's your favorite sushi? 

Supposedly, I have my comment section back up so if there are any readers left out there please leave a message! . . . maybe you can answer the question I prompted above :)

Cat in Forest

Yes, it's been a damn long time. 
I don't know what it is really. It seems that more people are substantially on Instagram and Snapchat rather than actually reading blogs. Does anyone remember when was the last time they actually read a whole blog entry? 

I do feel that pictures really do speak a thousand words. HOWEVER it's just depressing that no one ever writes anymore except for the small little box given to them or the short sentence they can slab on a picture that will only be posted for a day. 

Have we really come to a generation where everything has to be short and concise? I'm sure photos that are posted were well thought out and tediously edited.  But that for a short burst of fame and a double tap recognition? 

I missed when Xanga was a thing. I missed when LiveJournal was a thing. 

It was so personal and detailed. You could totally see a person's true personality and their level of intelligence and creativity just by visiting their blog. On Instagram, people try to hard to carbon copy themselves from other well-known profiles.  Sure, you'll see photos being posted of random outings with friends with generic caption which would be more along the lines of "Dinner with @friendsname! Had a great time #gno #dinner #irrelevanthashtag".  But what else would the readers know about it. And more importantly, would you remember what happened during that dinner? I think blogs/diaries are a great way to remind yourself of how much fun (or how terrible) that day was.

I recently met the cutest elderly man the other day during a birthday dinner. He shared with me his diary that he had kept for the past 30 years. Every day, he would write what he ate, where he ate, and who he ate with. If possible, he would take a picture with them. There would be certain notes he would jot down about that person in hopes that he could one day look back on his life and all the people and food he has been blessed with. That night, we took a group photo and I was so honored to be apart of his recollection book. I thought it was the most ingenious yet sweetest thing.

Anastasia Liquid Lipstick Review (Sepia & Pure Hollywood)

To say the least, this past week was an utter disaster.  Unfortunate events occurring one after another with one being eye stye!  It's one of those weeks where you've had to many things happen that you fear for even stepping one foot out that door and decide to hermit at home.  I'm sure everyone has that one week, month, or--god forbid--year that nothing just doesn't seem to go right.  Just as though you and everything around you were spiraling down a toilet bowl.  Things just seem so tight and tense. Currents too strong to withstand to the point where you simply just have to stop fighting it and let everything flow naturally. 

Into the sewer.

I'm currently out of the sewer and going through some emotional ups and downs.  I started to question if there were any deep explanation to last week's brutality while I stand still amongst the wreckage.  Alright; maybe I'm over-exagerating.  There are a bunch of elements that occurred recently to have me pondering on my life thus far and what is to happen next.  Is this what they call mid-life crisis?   

I feel like I'm digging myself into a depressing post to cutting short, I've been trying to center myself with yoga and occasional retail therapy.  I recently have gotten tired of trying to run through my MAC lipsticks and decided to try something new.

Anastasia's liquid lipstick line is the best thing ever.  I'm not sure how long liquid lipsticks have been around but I have to say that I prefer these rather than the traditional lipsticks.  

Most of the time out of laziness, I hardly wear lipstick.  My lips naturally have a rosy pink tone to it so I end up wearing light makeup and lip chap.  But when I grow tired of my lip color, it's always nice to play around with new pigments.
