r e c e n t ♡ c o o r d s pt. 2

I haven't felt great lately = haven't felt as motivated to dress up and put on makeup as I usually do, but I do have some outfit rundowns I thought I'd post! Okay, three, to be more precise. But it is better than nothing, right?

Yes, I like Taobao, and I am not afraid to admit it and wear it with pride. 

The first pair of lenses I'm wearing in these pictures are from Pinkyparadise, where you can use my coupon code "irodohieru" for a little gift and an animal lens case to go with your lenses, and from the second pair - E.O.S Ice, in Pink - is from MapleLens. I posted a review of the E.O.S lenses here, and you'll find a better picture of my darling Princess Pinky Eclipse lenses right about here

I got this lil' cutie as well, but sadly the bust was a bit too small for me. A real bummer! But I thought I'd share the link either way, so you can get it here

And that's about it, for this time. I do have some more coords to post, however! I realized it while writing this post. I want to post them separately though, because the pictures are taken with my Nikon and they look more neat - which means my neat freak perfectionist brain would not be able to deal with me if I posted them along with these iPhone dressing-, bath- and bedroom photos. 

How do you deal with following me, and this blog, I wonder. 
Thank you for surviving. 

Hope you've a better week than I have, guys. And please make sure to make this weekend and next week even better. Lots of hugs and all of that. Goodbye for now. ♪

P.S. Make sure to follow my new Instagram, if you followed my old account! I lost it and it makes me unreasonably sad. (ノ´д`)So shamelessly self-promoting myself to find everyone from my old account, haha. 

It's @captain_iro

R e v i e w ♡ GEO CK106 Black x E.O.S Ice Pink

♡ M a p l e L e n s ♡

I actually had not heard about MapleLens before a little mail landed in my inbox not too long ago. The webshop's design reminds me of Pinkyparadise, although I must admit I find MapleLens cleaner and a bit easier to navigate (no hard feelings, Pinky). 

You'll find a variety of G&G Dueba, E.O.S, Geo Medical and Vassen lenses once you start to investigate the webshop. Four brands may not seem like a huge assortment, but with all the different colors, there are still a lot of models to find. Besides, if you have a hard time deciding, a smaller range is probably a good thing. 

I do, however, miss the really, really big, dolly lenses - I'm a sucker for big sparkly eyes. It would have been nice to see lenses larger than 15 mm. I also notice the prescription lenses don't go above / below (?) ~ 6.00 . . . I'm not sure what that means, as I don't need prescription lenses, but I have seen ~ 8.00 prescription lenses before, so I thought I should mention it.

With the customer service and shipping being so good, I definitely recommend this shop. The staff have been nothing but nice to me ever since that first email, and I was surprised when I got a notification slip from the post office, so shortly after placing my order. 

Go take a look and create your own opinion! 
Here's a little summary and some points, easier to look at: 

Assortment ♡ 6.5/10
Customer service ♡ 10/10
Shipping ♡ 10/10 

 Note: delivery time depends on which shipping method you choose, 
so I guess technically my opinion doesn't matter if you decide to place an order 
and pick a different shipping method.

Super happy I found these, I've missed black lenses like crazy, 
these are kind of perfect. They're very simple, as you can see, which means they blend well with the color underneath - in this case, my actual eyecolor. 

Sadly, they're not as comfortable as the other pair I chose, 
but they're definitely worth the price.

Design ♡ 10/10
Size, 14.2 mm ♡ 7/10 
Comfort ♡ 6.5/10
Price, 18.9 USD ♡ 9/10

Total score ♡ 8/10 

These lenses guys. These lenses. 
I can't think of a clever way to say this but damn, they are so comfortable.

The design is really lovely as well, don't you think? Definitely my new favorites!

Size, 14.8 mm ♡ 7.5/10 
Comfort ♡ 10/10

Total score ♡ 10/10 

So there you go! 
MapleLens is highly recommended by me ( no way ),
I hope I inspired someone out there to check them out. ♪ 

I don't really have anything useful to say here, so I'll just end this post with a litle goodbye. I hope you've all had great summers with lots of sun and lazy nights in front of Netflix! 
I am already fearing winter, but let's not think about that. Happy thoughts. 

Oh, one more thing before I go, don't forget to enter my giveaway! Right about > here. 
It ends August 18, so I guess I'll see you then?
