Cute Contact Lens Cases

I recently found these cute little contact lens cases while shopping online.  If you want to keep your contact lenses from getting mixed up with someone else's or if you simply like cute stuff, then this might be a great product for you. They can get a bit expensive, depending on the retailer that you shop with---price can range from $4-9.

The frog case is actually from Forever21 and the other two cases are from Kikkerland (but you might want to shop around, other stores do carry them.) I personally think that they are really cute and they manage to put a smile on my face whenever I see them.  What do you think?













Benefits of Houseplants

Various studies have shown that houseplants are very beneficial to the human health...here are some simple reasons why they are great to have around.

1) They make breathing easier by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen.

2) As part of the photosynthetic process, plants release water vapor into the air, therefore increasing the humidity of the air around them. That in turn will help us to decrease the chance of having dry skin, colds, dry coughs and sore throats.

3) Plants will purify our air by removing the toxins away...such as formaldehyde (found in rugs, cigarette smoke, vinyl...etc), benzene and trichloroethylene (both found in inks, paints and solvents...etc)

4) Studies have also shown that plants can lower your blood pressure, decrease anxiety and fatigue, while increasing your ability to focus on the task at hand.

Aside from some of the reasons listed above, I'm sure there are plenty of other reasons why houseplants are great to have around. If you're just…

Lipstick Swatches "Christian Dior Addict #578 Diorkiss" & "IOPE #23 Violet Pink"

They are both really pretty lipstick colors.  They both apply smoothly and does not dry out your lips as much as some of the other formulas.  My lips tend to get really dry...so I'm a bit more picky when it comes to choosing lipsticks.  These are definitely more hydrating and goes on nicely (even on dry lips).  As with most lipstick...the more you layer on, the color becomes more saturated.

Issey Miyake “BAO BAO” Bag

BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE is a line of bags and pouches that are based on the idea of “shapes made by chance.”  The bag is made of a light, flexible material that can be folded into as many shapes as you can imagine.   It’s like folding origami, but with your bag.  It’s a fun way to express your style creatively-and the bag is perfectly functional!  There are many colors to choose from.  The price tag might be a bit high, but it’s worth it.  Love it!




Good Morning, Sleepyheads...

I try my best to catch some beauty sleep before midnight every night…probably not the best that I can do.  I tried to enhance my sleeping routine by trying out these satin pillowcases that I've found recently from Morning Glamour.   After reading the description, I thought to  myself “Why not?”  Sounds like there are more benefits to these pillowcases then not, anti-aging and less hair breakage.  So I bought a box to try and  I must say that I love it!

Pros:
They are super soft—feels great on the skin.  I can see how they are easier on your skin and hair  than the normal cotton pillowcases.  There is definitely less friction on your face and hair as you sleep through the night, so maybe it does help with anti-aging and for protecting your hair.

Cons: Satin is naturally more delicate than cotton….if you have rough or dry hands, they will catch on these pillowcases once in a while.  It can also get a little warm sleeping on it right now, but I can imagine it being really warm and co…
