peace, love, & lip gloss

hello!
Alliterations are amusing. Chandeliers, cheesecakes, and charm bracelets make me happy. My blog aims to spread pink, positive thoughts and pretty little things. Send me some love and kisses via mail@krissyfied.com.

And at last I see the light.

This has been sitting in my Drafts folder for so long, I almost forgot about it! o.0

I think some of you will be glad to know I finally crossed off one item that has been in my Christmas wish lists since forever (including last year's) - contact lens! At long last, I took a leap of faith and did it, and I couldn't be happier! LOL I just wish I did this earlier ;D

I got these from an optical shop in SM North EDSA but I wouldn't tell you anymore because it would be like free advertising for them and I don't want to give them that because they gave me the worst customer service ever.
I got three pairs of Air Optix contacts (good for three months for each pair) for P2,500,
Solo Care solution, and Aquify eye lubricant.
The solution already contains a free antibacterial lens-container.
Aside from suffering from near-sightedness, I also have astigmatism so I couldn't go for very long without wearing my eyeglasses. As I have shared before, I've worn glasses since I was eight years old and I couldn't live without it. I am practically blind! If you're wondering how that's like, well, imagine watching a 3D movie without 3D glasses on. Everything just meshes into one big ball of blurry mess.

I first used it on our department's Christmas party. It felt uncomfortable at first but I'm used to it now. I had troubles putting them on during the first few times, and don't get me started on my attempts to take them out; I was honestly too scared I would pop my eyes out! But after around five times I am proud to say I have already become quite a pro ;)

I bring the solution, eye lubricant, antibacterial case, hand mirror, and alcohol whenever I have my contacts on.
Everything is packed neatly in this mesh pouch given by FAB Salon :) 
As the pairs I got are only good for three months, I decided to use them sparingly and still wear my glasses everyday in the office and during casual days. I just think it's great that I now have the option of wearing my contacts when I attend events and other social functions. Now I won't have to squint and pretend I see people when I need to take my glasses off for vanity's sake heehee.

This only means one thing. I could finally rock eyeshadows!

Of course I would still want to get a LASIK treatment. Someday, someday ♥
