Harajuku, Yoyogi Koen, and Les Mirroirs! Yum! :: Tuesday, May 6, 2014

So, This last week was Golden Week here in Japan and we got a couple days off from work to enjoy ourselves! 
On Saturday, Vin and I headed into town to visit Harajuku and Yoyogi Koen!

Harajuku was crazy crowded! 
 But really, that's to be expected when it's a holiday! This is the first time I've ever seen this colorful octopus.

We found this amazing little Brazilian? cafe on Takeshita street that was SOO delicious!!

 This was my meal! Small salad, small corn soup, steak with 'ragu' sauce and rice! Delicious!

And of course when in Harajuku, you have to get a Marion Crepe! 

Yoyogi Koen was also pretty crowded. So many people walking, sitting, playing badminton.. nice for a lazy day of walking and spending time with the boy!  

 2 unedited pictures from that day! 

After we were finished in Yoyogi Koen, we headed back home and decided to try the little French restaurant that is right across the street from our apartment.
They have a course menu, so we got the traditional course.
 1st was appetizers! 1 for each person. I have no idea what they are called, but the Japanese wife of the chef (who is French) said "It's like meatloaf and salami" so.. yeah :)

 Main dish. Thin steak with caramelized onions on top and potatoes and mushrooms under it. SOOO good!

 And desert! As a service they gave us each of the deserts! Chocolate Fondant (which was like a really creamy brownie) and cheesecake!! SO GOOD!

It started raining before we got to the restaurant, so I look a mess but... lol!

Thanks for reading!!

       Vassen Natural Sparkling Red Review ~ Pinkyparadise :: Saturday, May 3, 2014

Hi Guys!!
So, I just recently ordered some new lenses from Pinkyparadise!!
I've been thinking about getting some red lenses for awhile now, especially because Halloween is coming soon... (wait what? Halloween isn't for almost 6 months!!! SHUT UP! It's never too early to start planning!)
With this in mind, I decided to try some red lenses out.... But, I didn't want to go too crazy on my first foray out of my comfort zone (you know, brown). 
I settled on:

Well, because they looked pretty awesome on the model and because they had 'Natural' in the title... sounds pretty good to me, right?


Diameter: 14.5
Water Content: 42%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Life Span: 1 Year Disposal

 Cosmetic: Even though these say they're only 14.5, they look a lot bigger and give you a BIG EYE effect! They do a really decent job of enlarging your eyes without being too big and buggy. The color is very natural, but still RED! Exactly what I was looking for! 
My only complaint with how they look is the outer edges are mostly clear!! So, depending on where your contact drifts, you'll get a bit of a halo effect around the outer edge. For the most part, this is fine, but if they drift off at a strange angle (my contacts constantly feel the need to go for a walk in my eye! does anyone else have this problem?) the white-ish halo can look a bit awkward... But overall, pretty awesome!

Comfort: I wore these for a photoshoot where I was out in the wind for a couple hours. They held up wonderfully! They did get a little dry when I was force to stare into the wind, but otherwise they were quite easy to wear.

The boy and I!! HAMMM!

 As I said, coming soon: a photoshoot with these lenses! It'll take a little while to get the images edited! But, STAY TUNED!

As always!
