Firsts for Everything

I've had the privilege to try so many new things in these past few months. Some of them you'll probably think "Why on earth has she not done that or tried that before?! How?!"

Let's just say that I was a pretty sheltered child and wasn't exposed to new things as much as other kids then. :P

Here are some things that I have finally done, and can now cross off my lifelong bucket list!

1. Apple picking at an orchard and walking through a corn maze at the farm. The apples were so juicy, crisp, and RED DELICIOUS (ok sorry, that was a terrible pun).

Nail Colours for the Fall

Sorry for the delay in this post! I was in New York City this past weekend with my best friends and I had a blast (be on the lookout for a photo diary of my weekend)!

The crisp, cool weather calls for new shades of colour that are appropriate for the fall. Here are some of my favourites from my own junky collection of nail polish. 


Revlon "Fashionista" - dark teal

Eye Post #5: The Science Behind Dirty Contact Lenses & Amoebas

Some of you may remember the headline from months ago regarding a Taiwanese girl who supposedly had amoebas eat away at her eyeballs. Bleh.

I'm in my second month of school in the opticianry program, and I've finally learned the science behind what happened to this girl and her unfortunate eyeballs. So what exactly happened?

Long story short: A girl wore her disposable monthly contact lenses for six months straight without taking it out when sleeping or washing her face. Dirty water was used and her contact lenses became a host site for amoebas, which ate away at her corneas (you can read the full story here).

Current Lip Product Likes + Dislikes

I've only recently started to wear more of a variety of lip products (seriously, back then all I ever wore was no colour lip balm). I've found some that I love and wear constantly, and some that I tried and just don't like.

THE LIKES:
