Sponsored: Barbie - Puffy 3 Tones Green Lens

I've got a few more circle lenses coming along the way but I don't like bombarding you all by posting them all in a row. Not that fun and exciting if I do that right? :P ehehehee~

Theses pair of lenses are kindly given by Uniqso and their service is always fast and they also give you a registered number which is always a plus side. Their packaging is very cute and safely secured with bubble wrapping. They also give you a free animal contact lenses case, booyah!

Item details:
Manufacturer: Barbie (Dueba)
Diameter: 16.50mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.60
Place of Origin: Korea
Using cycle: 1 Year


My Review:
 Design 4/5: The design is very natural, nothing too crazy. No black/dark limbo ring around the lenses. Definitely recommend them for people who are looking for natural looking lenses yet also enlarges at the same time. I'm not too crazy for natural looking lenses so a 4/5 for me. 8)

Colour/color 5/5: The colour is vibrant as the advertisement, they are very-very true to the way it has been shown on their own company model.
You can see it in the dark/outdoor lighting. Also the fact that it has more than one colour in the lenses, it looks very natural and blends in very well with my natural eye colour.

Enlargement 5/5: The size is 16.5mm and they make my eyes look huge and dolly. I can tell you right now that it is definitely not 16.5mm More like 15.5mm to be honest. So don't be too alarmed! :)

Comfort 4.5/5:  Theses lenses are comfortable because they're really thin but there is a downfall they kind of annoyed the hell out of me when I tried taking them out of my eyes!!!! Too thin to take out of my eyes ughhh. They also last in my eyes for a good amount of time 6 hours+.

Here is a little video of how the lenses looks like with artificial lighting.

Overall: 5/5
I strongly recommend for people who are looking for natural looking lenses that has a slightly enlarging effect. Who doesn't like it when people think their natural eye colour is something different? ;)

HEALTH: Chia Seeds

I made a promise to you ladies and gents that I'll do a health post and here it is! Ever heard of chia seeds? No/yes? Well if it's the first time, it won't be your last.

Chia seeds are not only good for losing and maintaining your weight but also has other benefits such as:
  • Essential Fatty Acids – Omega 3 & 6
  • Fibre – both soluble &  insoluble fibre
  • Antioxidants
  • Protein & Amino Acids – it contains all 8 essential amino acids & more.
  • Essential Minerals; calcium, zinc, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, potassium
  • Vitamins A, B & E
  • Lower high blood pressure

So, what is Chia? Chia is a tiny little seed that is packed full of goodness.  It looks much like a poppy seed. It comes in black & white and they are nutritionally very similar. As far as we know one is no better than the other.

 Theses tiny little seeds are more capable of what they may look as it provides energy, strength, & aids endurance. It helps regulate blood sugar levels, helps with weight loss and aids intestinal regularity. Sounds great huh?  So the next question, ‘how do I use it’?

So where so you start. You can grind it if you like or eat it as is. Chia seeds do not really have a taste and when mixed with other foods, it does not change the flavour at all. About one tablespoon a day is enough to get the health benefits. They also absorb liquids and double their size therefore making you feel more full.

  • Mix in through yoghurt or sprinkle it on top
  • Sprinkle it on salads
  • Add it to your cereal
  • Add to a fruit salad
  • Put a tablespoon in a smoothie
  • Stir it through juice or even water

You can also bake or cook with chia.
  • Add it to stir fries
  • Pop it in a cake, muffin or cookie

Basically you can use it in anything really. ♥
I hope this post was useful and tell me if you've ever heard or tried it!

P.S - Eating healthy is another way of living healthy. I don't think there is anything wrong with eating "non-healthy food." I believe it's a way of sustaining good health. Whatever you eat or drink or do in life, just work it off. Don't complain. Do something about it.

Also do your own research as well, I'm not a dietitian so don't blame me! LOL. ♥

Until next time,
Much love ♥ Phuju.
