New hair, new life, right? Every time I enter a new life stage (new job, love life, or age milestone), I get this strong urge to change my hair. It helps me to embrace the changes and feel like a totally different personality. Or I just get easily bored with the current color or style. […]

Review: Canna Roze I-DOL Lens – Beige Brown and Nude Brown

Hey guys! It’s been months. As mentioned in my Sunnies review, I can’t function without corrective lenses. But sometimes, glasses get in the way. The constant smudges. Getting out of the car then the glasses fog up. Exercising with sweaty frames. I hate the hassle. That’s where contact lenses come in! I pretty much alternate […]
