Who could say no to roses?

Posted on 15th, May, 2016

Summer is almost here, but spring is where it’s at! :fa3 :thaha I’ve been busy with life, work, rolling around my room, paying taxes, and now playing Dark Souls 3. Sometimes I don’t know exactly what to post on this blog, but today I think this is quite appropriate. :cat2 The park I’ll be referring to is Utsubo park located in Honmachi, a business district in Osaka.

It currently hosts variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. Simply stunning. :h4

I’ve been eating lunch outside lately since it’s been getting warmer and warmer. Utsubo Park in Honmachi Osaka seems to have rose events every year around this time. :misc2 Walking into this park is simply breathtaking for me as I’ve never really seen so many different types of roses in one place before.

Utubo Rose Garden…? When typing Japanese, “tu” will give you “つ” (tsu)…
but reading it like this just looks weird! The s is necessary, you guys. :fa6


Forgive my lack of camera skills.

My attitude and energy shoots up through the roof when in this park! I just wish the roses could stay forever. Even when they are gone, the park is just so pristine and relaxing, it’s a nice getaway from the office. Gotta get out and about before the summer heat ruins everything.

Some two-tone roses. I’m pretty sure there were more.

And a few more roses!

I also changed my hair! I pretty much only where protective styles these days because my hair is still too short for my liking. I usually wear wigs or braid up my hair like in the picture below. Hopefully I can start doing something with my natural hair. It has gotten pretty long, but you wouldn’t be able to tell because of the shrinkage!

Yeah, that’s all. The next blog post should be before the end of this month, haha. I already have the pictures ready for it. Gotta keep updating, gotta keep updating… But Dark Souls 3 is too good. I squeezed Dark Souls into this post 3 times, admittedly the last two instances were lazy. :fa18

Hanami 2016 ❤in Osaka❤

Posted on 12th, April, 2016

We had a picnic in Tsurumi Ryokuchi Park.

I was worried that I’d miss cherry blossom viewing season this year. I missed it last year as I was in America just when the flowers started to bloom. Work life makes it very hard because that means only about two weekends are available to get your hanami on. I went to my job’s hanami event on Friday at night and it was fun, but not the same as during the day. This past Sunday was pushing it because the cherry blossoms had begun to fall days before and were rained on heavily :fa10

Me and Yana having a laugh :thaha

I didn’t know most of the people who came since this was a Facebook group event. It was nice meeting everyone and talking about our similarities and differences. We also all enjoyed some Fetty Wap, haha :cat3 It was through these events that my friend created Interpretive Trap Dance, a new style of dance born in Osaka y’all.

Admiring my creepy lenses XCK-105

So getting back to why Sunday was pushing it – luckily there were still plenty of flowers left! And the tree that we decided to sit next to was full of them :h4 We even had some kids come up with their mom asking to play. At first we were weary since it seemed as if the mom was looking for some kind of free English lesson… Though she did say they needed to build up their English abilities, she didn’t push them too much and we had a lot of fun playing soccer :cat2

It was a cloudy and slightly chilly day.

I’m trying to find the time to edit the videos that I took this past Sunday. Once that’s all good and done, I’ll post it in here :fa23 Should be in a few days.

[VIDEO] Max Pure Brown

Posted on 20th, February, 2016

I can’t believe I haven’t blogged yet this year! Oops! :fa11

Finally, a pair of Max Pure Browns to call my own (These were purchased last year…) :misc7 It took a while before actually buying them since there was always more exciting alternatives. Unfortunately, my camera isn’t the best, but you can still see how the color actually shows up. :cam

Scroll down for a few specs and my video review! :h4 Here goes ↓↓↓

Natural light

Dim lighting

In front of a window

Indoor lighting

Flash

Enlargement: 4/5

These lenses are 14.5mm and will give the effect of bigger, more doll like eyes. These lenses are big, but won’t look alien like when not wearing makeup.

Color/Design: 5/5

The brown color can be seen indoors and with most lighting. The color itself isn’t very bright, but it’s definitely there. Depending on your eye color, you’ll have different results. The design is great since they don’t look too pixelated/fake IRL. The medium brown color is just enough to make a difference.

Comfort: 4/5

I’ve worn these lenses in the past and didn’t have any issues. Though I experienced no irritation, I still always feel these lenses. I’ve had other lenses feel like I’m not wearing them at all… these lenses don’t give me that. My eyes get a little tired after 8 or so hours. I’m satisfied with the comfort, but it might be different for your eyes.

Overall: 4.5/5

These are a good basic brown lens. Recommended for those who are new to circle lenses. Perfect if you’re just looking for a pair to wear to school or work.
