Guest Post by Charley about her handmade jewelry

First of all, i wanna say im sorry that i haven't being updating for the longest time, but like i said before, i have relatives visiting here, so i am very occupied...also, there is a 50% chance that i will be out of the country starting as early as this Wednesday to China, and if i do leave, i won't be back until the mid-end of the months...the trip is actually quite spontaneous...and wasn't planned ...so it is very last minute...if i do go i can't do anything on my blog until i get back...cuz i am going to China, and blogger is blocked/sensored there so are facebook/twitter ect..so ya...but i think i can know by tmr or later tonight, when and if i am going at all...so i think i will update you guys more on the situation once i have a definite answer and date...

On a other notes, Charley from owleyescollection.etsy.com actually contacted me awhile back to do a review post for her handmade jewelries...but Since I am actually not a big jewelry gal...i told her i'd love if she wants to do a guest post on my blog about her store...and i wanna make it very clear that i didn't get anything for free or received any monetary compensation from her...i think she has some awsome pieces, and i always have alot of respect for people who are very good at hand-craft..cuz i have butter fingers, and dont work well with hand craft stuff.


So without any further of me blabbing, here is what She has to say:



Hello Everyone.     

First of all I would like to thank  Jessy  for allowing me to post on her blog.

My name is Charlene and I have been working hard on finding away to make a business from something that I enjoy doing.  With a loss of my job and some support from my family, I decided to give Jewelry making a chance.  I enjoy being creative and being able to make something that someone else will love wearing.  

I created OWL EYES COLLECTION, which can be viewed at owleyescollection.etsy.com
I use high quality chain, wire and beads.  I am also always looking for Great Vintage pieces to incorporate into the pieces I create.   

Also, since everything is handmade I can usually adjust the measurement according to how you would like to wear the piece. 
 
I hunt for great buys to give you great prices.  

Here are a few pieces and make sure to check out my store weekly because I will be adding new items often. 









Use Promo Code OWLEYESJESSY for 10% off your purchase
Thank you 



 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So ya if you guys enjoy hand-made jewelry, go check out her online store. My favorite piece from the sample photos is the gold rose necklace/pendant...i think it is very pretty, and can easily wore with alot of different outfit and occasions..

anyways, i will keep you guys posted on my travel situations..probably tmr i will do a update...but if i do go to china, it would be soo much fun and exciting, cuz everything is cheaper in China...lol...well the cute little stuff anyway...



As always with lotsa Luv and Xoxo

Look of the Day - Bronzey and Gold and updates

Sorry ive being MIA...recently if you read my last post you'd know that my brother in law and cousin in law are here in Canada for a visit they are not leaving until the end of the month, so i have no time to do any make up...mainly because they are using my "make up room" as a bedroom, and id feel weird to ask a bunch of guys to get out of the room while i do make up...I am also not that comfortable doing my make up in front of other people especially guys..unless its my hubby...so ya...but being a smart girl i did a few looks b4 they came so i have something to post while they are here...One more thing i think im going to ottawa/montreal/Quebec city with them this week, so kinda excited for that..

Anyways, this is the new look of the day:

Since summer is almost over (BOOOOO), i thought i'd do a early fall inspired look...so i did a bronzey/bold look..all the eyeshadows are from the coastal scent 88 warm palette.

Here is the close up:
Eyes Open
Eyes Closed.


Sorry this post is short, but like i said in my previous post everything will be back to normal once they are leaving...and by the starting of September i should be back to my regular posting rates...


In the mean time id love to hear your thoughts, but i dont think i have the time to reply to your questions at the moment...im still taking requests but i won't be able to do them until the in laws are leaving...so sorry about my lack of post and everything~~~


Hope you guys have a great day~~~

Hello my beautiful readers~~~sorry i haven't being updating yesterday like i should've~~~lol, but as for this thursday day, im gonna be super busy until the end of August~~~Why you might ask??? Well my brother in law and cousin in law are visiting the hubby, so me and the hubby have to show them around in Ontario, and they wanna go to Quebec City/Montreal as well...so we have to take them to alot of sight seeing places and whatnot, so my updates will be less than b4, but i promise everything will be back to normal after they are gone, which is the end of August...on the plus side of this, the hubby took a total of 7 days off work, so i get to spend more time with him~~~

Anyways, today's look its a slightly dramatic brown smokey eye...I forgot to take pictures of the Products that i used so i'll list them here right now
MAC Minerliazed Eyeshadow in Smokey Ruby (LE)
NYX Runway Palette in Champagne and Caviar

Product Review - Bliss' The Youth as we Know it Anti-Ageing Cream

Hello my lovely readers, how are you guys today..I am doing really good~~~haha and today i am doing a review of the Bliss "The Youth as we Know it" Anti-Ageing Cream...I bought this back in end of the May, and i started to use it since late June...

Here is the packaging.
Now personally speaking, i don't have any major wrinkle to start with, however my face do have quite a bit of discoloration because of my sensitive/allergy prone skin...after using this cream for about little over a month, i feel that my face is more "glowy" than say b4 i started to use it..also i notice that it does make my skintone more even than before. As far as anti-ageing goes....at least i didn't get any wrinkle while i am using this one...As a moisturizer, i think it does a very good job. It is a rich cream, but it get absorbed very quickly and easily. And it does have a scent to it, but it's not parfum its the scent from the ingredients. I feel that it does lock in moisture very well. Since its summer our house is air-con 24/7...even if i wake up with no oil on my face, but it doesn't feel dry, and it feels silky even. I guess you can say that it balances oil on your skin as well, cuz not one day did i wake up to oily T-zone(my Oily Area). This cream is design to be used on morning and night, but i feel during the day, it doesn't control oil as it does well at night...but then again i sweat way more during the day than at night...Overall, i really like this cream, i would defintely buy it again..but maybe not right a way, but for winter...i think you guys should try it out if you have the chance...

The only complain from this cream that i feel is that, it is quite pricey..about 87-90 dollars depends on where you buy it from. But personally i do feel that it is worth the money that you are paying..Actually when i comes to winter, i might buy the whole set of face wash/eye cream/toner/cream set...they usually have good value packs during X-mas time.

it is a thick cream, but goes on very smooth.
You only need about pea size for your whole face and neck..


My final Verdict 8/10...Minus too because it is quite expensive...but other than that i have no other complains with this cream..so i hope you guys like my review of "The Youth as We Know it" Cream"..if there are anything you guess want me the review or any make up look you want me to do, or any question about anything...let me know~~~

So have you guys tried this cream b4? how did it work out for you???Is there other cream you've tried thats better, but cheaper??? let me know down in the comment section~~~~


I hope you guys have a great weekend

4. use a light purple or lilac, and apply it all over the purple eye base.
5. Take a Green Base apply it to the out half of the lower lashline
6. Take a dark Green colour and apply it over the green base on the out half of the lower lashline
7. Take a gold eyeshadow and apply it on the inner corner of the eye, as well as the inner half of the lower lashline.
8. Line your eyes with black eyeliner (tight-lining optional)
9. Curl your lashes and apply Mascara
10. Apply your favorite Blush
11. Apply a Mauve colour lipstick and lipgloss...
The Look is complete.

Here is what i used:

No Name Japanese Palette in Green
Gosh Single in Gold
Cheeks:

Circle Lens Review - Sheeshell Cosmo Aqua(sponsored By Pinky Paradise) Also Pinky Paradise Coupon Code

A while Back Pinky Paradise contacted me to review 1 pair of lenses for them, i had the chance to choose from anything they offered on their website...and i decide to try Sheeshell Cosmo Aqua...a pair of blue lenses.

About pinky paradise:
They are an online company that is based in Asia that deals with mostly circle lense and asian brand cosmetics, they've being around for a while now, and youguys probably seen other blogger and make up gurus did reviews for their circle lenses or make up b4.

they have alot of great choices of lenses to choose from. Over 350 styles from fun/cosplay style to natural lenses that are perfect for everyday. They are all ready to ship within 3 days. They also offer more than just circle lenses, they also carries lashes, mascara, facial mask to BB cream and etc. PinkyParadise is ‘your eye make up one-stop online beauty store’.

So i got a pair of Blue one, since i don't own any blue lenses, i thought its fun to try it out...

As you can see, its a very blue/green-ish colour.
 Description from Website:
Item details
Weight: 0 kg, 100 grams
Stock: Stock available
Diameter : 14.5mm
Water Content : 45%
Base Curve : 8.6mm

I like the Fact that it has a higher water content, it makes the lens more comfy to wear...

the colour is nice and opaque

I thought the colours are very opaque, a little different than the colour listed on their website...but they are comfy to wear though, i like it...however unless you are Caucasian, i won't recommend wearing them alone without any make up...its a bit too much...but with make up they look nice though...i think this particular pair of lens looks better than in pictures...they look more natural in person...where as in pictures they look abit fake...

The Shipping took about 1 week and half...which is acceptable for me, since it is shipped from all the way from the other side of the planet...the whole transaction is smooth. they pack the lenses very nicely so there weren't any damages during the shipping time.

My Final Thoughts:
Colour 8/10 (Very nice colour. just a bit too opaque and hard to wear without make up)
Comfort 9/10...Very comfy, feels better than the other pairs that i own, but you can still feel the contact lense
Enlargement: 10/10 These Lenses are very big, and give you a great enlargement effects...if you like more wearable color, try the grey or hazel..


Pinky paradise is also nice enough to give me a coupon code to share with my readers: "threenothing"
By entering this coupon code:
1. Customers entitle a FREE cute animal lens case PLUS mystery gifts
2. The coupon code can be stacked, If you purchase 3 pairs, you will get 3 lens case plus 3 mystery gifts.
3. A minimum of 1 lens purchased to activate the code.
4. The code has no expired dates :)

One more thing:

Caution Notes:
You are best advised to consult your eye doctor before wearing any contact lens. It is your responsibilities to minimize the risk of wearing lenses. Kindly please read the wear & care guide carefully to ensure proper handling of lenses (which is provided in the website). The rule of thumb for your eye safety is, if you experience any discomfort, please remove the lens immediately.

On a side note, although i recieved this pair for free, but even if you guys uses my code, i don't get commissioned or get paid. The Only thing i get out of your guys using the code is that for every 5 person who uses my code i get one free pair of circle lens. so please don't think you have to buy it using my code...

Anyways, i hope this review is helpful to those of you who are considering buying circle lenses...or who wants to get a pair of blue lenses..again if you have eye problems already is always better to talk it over with your Eye Doctor b4 you make any decisions...especially if you have astigmatism...
