Vannak Photography: Just a Dream Away

Day Dream Carnival: Just a Dream Away…

As you know, Angelic Pretty’s Day Dream Carnival is one of my dream prints! One of my dream dresses is the Day Dream Carnival JSK in sax blue. Over a year ago, I found the headbow in sax blue on Mbok, and that was the first Day Dream Carnival item I owned. I coordinate it with some Bodyline things, but I wasn’t able to find the dream JSK I wanted. I still have yet to find it, but I did snatch up this salopette! I was worried about purchasing it since I’ve never worn a salopette before, but it was too tempting since it came with the tights and the seller was able to do a payment plan. It took me a while to pay for the set, but I am so glad I finally have this. Maybe someday I can find the JSK… But for now, I love this salopette! I wasn’t sure if I could pull off a salopette, but it’s comfy and cute.

A Surreal Photoshoot with Vannak Photography

Vannak Photography traveled to my campus for this photoshoot. I truly appreciate his time and efforts! We took most of the photos in the Botanic Gardens, but we also shot by the dorms. I definitely enjoy shooting on campus since I’m familiar with the environment (and the gardens are absolutely beautiful, especially during the summer time).

The photoshoot took a few hours, and I tried some new things I’ve never done before. The end result was a total of five beautifully edited photos! Each photo is absolutely stunning, which doesn’t surprise me since Vannak’s work is always impressive! You should definitely check out his website.

I even brought macarons with me to eat during this photoshoot! It was a hot summer day and the cream in the macarons melted everywhere, but they still tasted delicious. The tree in the above photo (the one with the swing) is one of my favorite trees on campus.

Below, you’ll see my favorite photo from this photoshoot! Vannak Photography brought a stool, and I sat on the stool for the photo. Leaning back and sticking my legs out like that was actually quite a workout… I felt so out-of-shape. But it was worth it: the end result is so dream-like!

CamoEyes: Aqua 3 Tone Contacts

Today, I am going to review a pair of lenses that was sponsored to me from CamoEyesCamoEyes sells non-prescription colored contact lenses, ranging from more naturally styled lenses to crazy special effects lenses. This company is located in the United Kingdom, but they ship internationally.

CamoEyes uses regular mail service via Royal Mail to ship their packages. The packaging for their products is fantastic!

DSC_2179_Fotor_CollageInside the bubble mailer, there were two boxes with the contact lens vials inside. The boxes kept the vials safe and secure! Here are the contents of the boxes:

Fotor_Collage

They sponsored the Aqua 3 Tone Contacts and the Red Mesh Contacts. Both of these lenses do not give enlargement; they are not circle lenses. These are colored contact lenses. Contact lenses from CamoEyes are not medical devices; they will not correct your vision. These lenses are great for people with 20/20 vision who don’t want to enlarge their eyes! They give vibrant color without the circle lens enlargement. These lenses are also great for people who love wearing their glasses but want to change up their eye color. I know sometimes I love wearing my own glasses!

Instructions

These instructions came inside each of the contact lens boxes. I think it’s great when companies send out instructions for the use and care of their lenses! It’s important to read contact lens instructions to make sure you understand how to take care of them. Remember, your health and safety comes first! Lenses from CamoEyes may have different lifespans, so be sure to read the box, vials, and instructions carefully. Make sure you know when your lenses expire! This goes for any contact lens, not just these ones.

In this post, I will focus on the Aqua 3 Tone Contacts.

I love the pretty aqua/teal color of these lenses! The life span of these lenses is 90 days after opening their vials. These lenses are mostly aqua, but they also have bits of black and gold to give the lenses an interesting design. Even though these are not enlarging lenses, the black limbal ring defines the eyes and gives the illusion that the eyes are bigger. I always love lenses with a solid limbal ring!

I have bad eyesight… so if I am usually seen wearing my trusty old glasses. I hope my eyesight doesn’t get any worse… I don’t want to switch to a higher prescription again! In any case, I love how vibrant my eyes look even with my glasses on. My normal eye color is a very dark brown that looks black in most lighting, so this bright aqua is a welcome change!

For this makeup look, I wanted to go for something more natural, something that would be easy to wear everyday. To be honest, I do not wear makeup that often. I’m very busy, so if I have time to wear makeup on an average school day, I only wear eyeliner. But more often than not, I don’t put anything on my face other than moisturizer. For this look for CamoEyes, I used foundation, neutral brown eyeshadow, black crayon eyeliner, black mascara, and a red lip tint. I never use mascara, but I wanted to try it out since my lashes are almost non-existent. I love the way false lashes look on me, but they can be a hassle. I hope you like this toned-down everyday makeup look!

A Coordinate for California

Wow, it has been a month since my last post… Sorry about the brief hiatus! I thought I was going to participate in Lolita Blog Carnival this month, but time flew by and suddenly June is almost over.

But now that it is almost July… I have something to share! In a few days, I will be going to the airport… and flying to the West Coast for the first time! I am so excited. I will be attending Anime Expo in California, and staying in CA for a week with my friend Terry. I’ve never been to California before, so I’m looking forward to it!

I have to pack light, but I will be bringing some lolita clothes (and of course, my petticoat). I also will bring some gyaru stuff with me. I really want to get into the gyaru style as well!

On Day 3 (Saturday) of Anime Expo, I plan to wear a sweet lolita coordinate. I decided to plan out my coord beforehand so I wouldn’t have to struggle to coordinate an outfit in a jet-lagged state.

The coordinate is mostly pink and red! The cutsew is from Angelic Pretty and the skirt is from Bodyline (but it’s a replica of Angelic Pretty’s Fruits Parlor).

CaliCoord

The headband and the necklace are made by Sweet Mildred, and the fuzzy star and the small bow are both offbrand. The wristcuffs are from Classical Puppets on Taobao, and they were a present from my friend Terry. Of course, I have to bring these wristcuffs with me! The socks are offbrand and the shoes are from Bodyline (with my orthotics inside ❤ luckily, they fit!).

DSC_2165

I may pack some cute rings with me to wear too! We’ll see… I also plan to use a wig for this coordinate, probably my short milk tea wig from Gothic Lolita Wigs.

I can’t wait to wear this coord at AnimeExpo! (And hopefully, I’ll wear J-fashion throughout the week after the con!)
