I'm back home in Hong Kong for Christmas, and I have to say- it's really smoggy and grey all the time! I've had a rough term because I've been sick for 4 times in the past two months. It's not even funny, because my house is really cold and my dorm room over in the UK has a faulty heater. It's freezing!
The pictures above are from my college's biennial winter party. It was awesome because I had kangaroo burgers, went roller skated and saw my college being transformed into something magical, beautiful and radiant (for once!). There was even a ferris wheel in my college which was set up the day before... what a dizzy ride. Usually, my college isn't the best looking one in university, so it's a really proud moment for me. I look kind of silly in my pictures, but that's because I haven't posted anything in a long time!
I'm spending it with my boyfriend and we're going to spend all day gossiping, hanging out and baking a rainbow cake today.
Hope you all have a merry christmas! What are you all doing?

Hey dears! I'm lucky enough to be able to review the EyeTeck Iris Brown 14.2mm circle lens from KPop2, for you today. It's my new favourite pair of lens because it's actually really natural compared to other colored circle lens, and they are really comfortable! I wore them for my university May Ball yesterday for over 8 hours and they didn't get dry or uncomfortable at all. These are definitely must-haves if you're a lens lover like me. Take a look at some pictures below at the ball, all glammed up and ready to go with my lens and eye make-up!
My package came really fast and included a small, cute lens container. As you can see, they look brown and are patterned with a black outer spiral-like rim. I really like the color because it's absolutely gorgeous and makes me feel really confident and extra special! Wearing circle lenses makes your eyes bigger too- these have a nice enlarging effect and compliment my brown hair well. There are seriously no disadvantages to these lenses- I didn't experience irritation or anything when I was wearing these lenses.
I had a great time at the ball and took lots of beautiful photos. But my look is only complete with these lovely circle lens from KPop2- so thank you so much Kpop2 and please check them out if you can! They have a lot of different types of circle lens suitable for all different tastes and skin tones. You can check out these lenses here! I'd definitely recommend them fully and honestly - they're one of the most comfortable and natural pair of lens I own.
What do you think of them?

Ever wanted to wear matching earrings and a necklace for your party? I've been going to a lot of events lately around campus and school, since exams are almost over and it's summertime soon. I want to introduce you to my latest favourite shop online- Bow and Crossbones - they're vintage, sassy and hip.
Just a little about the shop- they're dedicated to bringing vintage, retro and rockin pieces to girls who like rare, unique and hip pieces of jewellery and accessories. Bow & Crossbones sells vintage-inspired items such as glittering confetti filled earrings, brooches and necklaces inspired by Tiki and Rockabilly fashions. If you're new to this blog, you'll know that I'm actually a vintage-loving girl. I really enjoy dressing up my inner 90s girl!
So I did a little online ordering and bought a Sacred Heart Necklace (Silver) for £11.99 and a pair of matching Silver swallow earrings to go with them. I needed them for a party and thought they'd be perfect for my vintage dress that night. So here are the pictures from my lovely package which came in the mail soon afterwards...
Aren't they beautiful? I love swallow-inspired pieces, because birds symbolise freedom, heaven and paradise. I think birds are the epitome of vintage-styled designs, because they capture the free spirit that's inside all of us. Not only are the earrings light and shiny, the necklace was also the perfect thickness to go with a heavy dress. It's really good quality too, and felt sturdy and unbreakable. I received a lot of complements when I wore the matching earrings and necklace at my party, everyone asked me where I got it from!
So check out Bow and Crossbones! Their stuff is absolutely fantastic and chic!

It's exam time and what's the best way to de-stress? You guessed it - review a new pair of circle lens! I'm a huge fan of coloured contact lens, although I know it isn't practical to wear them everyday. I ordered a pair of Dolly Eye Crystal i Hazel lens (14.5mm in diameter) from the awesome circle lens shop UNIQSO (http://www.uniqso.com) to wear as part of a special day, and I thought I'd try them on today because the weather was lovely and I was heading out. Here's my review with lots of pictures so you can see what they look like!
PROS: It came in a lovely little box and was really quick to deliver. Also, the circle lens were well-designed and looked really natural and not too light in color, so it would be perfect for those of you with brown or dark eyes. I also like the enlarging effect- it is quite obvious and makes your eyes look bigger, so I would say it looks better with makeup on than a bare face. I also think that the pattern is very beautiful because it is slightly mixed and has 2-3 tones of color. Also, I wore them for 7 hours without irritation, so they can be worn for a long time and are very comfortable! I got lots of compliments and felt more confident wearing these lenses~
CONS: There isn't many at all- I really love this pair of lens and they're really comfortable, even with sensitive eyes like mine. The only thing I would say is be careful with the size- it is 14.5mm in diameter, which is quite large and if you don't have big eyes, I'd recommend either wearing more makeup with these lens or choosing a smaller pair of lens on UNIQSO's website.
I managed to get a 10% discount code to use on UNIQSO's website for all you readers! Simply enter "FANTAILFLO" at checkout to get some money off- and the lenses are affordable and cheap!
Please check their contact lens store out and let me know what you think of my look and leather jacket! Let's all survive this Easter term!
