Eyewear Made Easy by OTTICA


I need to have three major components in my life that keep me afloat. These three are sleep, food and my eyeglasses. I have mentioned before that I have been wearing eyeglasses every since I was about 5 years old due to stigmatism and what not. So you can just imagine how many specs I have ruined, grew out of and just fell out of love with in the past 18 years(long time).

When OTTICA first reached out to me and offered a generous deal. I was ecstatic! I am still not used to people giving me free things(I don’t think I ever will). OTTICA is an online eyewear company that caters to literally every need an eyeglass wearer needs, from A to Z. But i’ll get to that in a bit.


They carry household brands that are loved by many like Ray Ban, Tory Burch, Michael Kors, Versace, to name a few. When ordering a pair, you can get them with no prescription, distance (single vision), reading (single vision), progressives (smooth transitions for all distances; I have this for my everyday eyewear) and bifocals (reading and distance). See I told you they do everything. But wait, there is more.

So when it came to what I wanted to get, I was thinking of getting a pair of specs but wasn’t too sure. I wanted something classic, a piece that will grow old with me(don’t want to grow old though), versatile, not too dressy and of course, the basic biatch I am, I wanted it to be casual. So after much thought and convincing, I decided to get a pair of Ray Ban Clubmasters in Tortoise. Here are the rest of the Ray Bans that they carry, link here!


When you order from OTTICA, they give you options for your decided thickness of your lenses. They have three options. They come in thin air (+2.00–2.00), advanced thin (25% lighter than normal lenses) and ultra thin (35% lighter than normal lenses).

At OTTICA, when you order a pair of sunglasses, you can upgrade your lenses to tinted shades (they come in Gray, Brown and Green; comes with purchase), polarized lenses (reduces glare) and Mirrored (comes in 5 shades; Red, Blue, Gold, Green and Silver).

When I placed my order, I was told that my package will come in 10-14 business days, which is about 3 weeks. I didn’t really mind since I knew that it was coming from overseas. I then got a text from a courier that it was arriving on June 6. I even prepared the 5% tax they usually ask for upon international delivery. But I guess that the tax fee came with the delivery charge, which was $25USD. 


To my surprise, it arrived on a Thursday, not even a week since I ordered it. Now that’s service!

Did I mention that every purchase comes with a 365 day warranty or your money back! With free shipping and returns! OTTICA literally does all the stops!

Zoeva Rose Golden Eyeshadow Palette | The Review


Zoeva has well been under the makeup spotlight for the past few months. They are well-known to product some amazing quality makeup brushes(especially the Kabuki kind)that are mostly VEGAN. But recently, they have been come out with other makeup products that range from blush and eyeshadow palettes that have Vitamin E and are Paraben Free

This being my very first product from Zoeva, I was excited to see what all the fuss was about! I picked up the Rose Golden Eyeshadow Palette, which I talked about in my Sephora AU Haul blog post the other week. I picked this up manily because I wanted to see how good these shadows were compared to the Urban Decay and Lorac eyeshadow palettes.

Let me first start with the packaging, I love practically everything Rose Gold and cute patterned designs. But seriously… how could you not put a mirror in an eyeshadow palette? Especially one that is within a medium to high price range(This palette was $38AUD).


I feel that this palette has a really good set of red toned eyeshadow shades. These type of shades really look good with green eyes. This palette has a total of 10 shades with 3 matte shades and 7 that are more on the metallic side. 

I used this palette when getting ready for a friend’s wedding and Halloween, let’s just say that this palette did its job well. It blended well in my crease and with other colors on my eyelid. And it stayed on for a decent amount of time with a little help from my eyeshadow primer and setting spray.

My favorite shades in this palette aside from the Luster(because I do love a good nude) would be Shining Bright and Just a Rose. Although I feel like Rusty Petals would make a great transition shade too!

Shades Left to Right: Luster, Reflective Elegance, Copper is King, Shining Bright and Rusty Petals
Shades Left to Right: Foil, Just a Rose, Golden Rule, Harmony and Wonder Full

All in all: I think that this eyeshadow palette is great! Especially for those who enjoy playing around with shimmery shades and what not. Although they should put a mirror in there next time!

#PERSONALBEST | Goals Till My Birthday


Coincidentally, this posting date marks six months before my birthday. So I figured that I should write a post about what I want to achieve by the time I turn 2-3.

I was actually inspired to write this post after watching one of my favorite Youtubers ever, Estee Lalonde‘s videos. What I love about her content is that she talks more than just makeup, skincare and fashion. She continues to remind us, her viewers to be THE BEST version of ourselves. This specific video has got to be one of my most favorite ones to date. #PERSONALBEST <–Please do watch!

Lets start with them goals!


I feel like this is something I have to constantly remind myself because I get so worried about how people perceive me, like “did they think I was too fat?”, “was I rude?” or “did they even care to listen to what I was saying?”. The thing is I know that these thoughts are what hinder me from JUST DOING things in general. Recently, I have been trying my best to zone out these thoughts at the back of my head. And guys, it’s WORKING!


At this time of my life, I have so many things that I want to accomplish by a certain time. I am young and the possibilities are endless. But I do keep in mind certain goals(ie, becoming an architect, finishing projects and growing my blog), so I don’t fall of track and wander off(theoretically speaking). 


Ever since I turned 22 last April, I have made it a point to start eating and living healthy. And since then I have lost over 20 pounds(slowly but surely) due to a lot discipline and exercise(it ain’t easy friends). Although I can never give up my chocolate! If you want a more specific post about this, let me know!


I am known to many as a professional homebody, and still am! But every now and then, I get this burst of spontaneity to just go out and do something new. And most of the time, I don’t regret doing it. If it doesn’t kill you, it’ll only make you stronger-Kanye West
