Warby Parker: A New Concept in Eyewear

In a few months it will be the start of summer, and I really just cant wait for it to come. For me, summer means endless fun under the sun, the beach, the park, basically just anywhere. And what better way to complete you summer outfit but by wearing the perfect summer accessories, sunglasses! Yeah, summer will never be complete without those cool and chic sunglasses as well as those fashionable retro eyeglasses. You can mostly find a lot of eye wear online. And today, I am going to introduce to you a new ship that I have just discovered, and I know you'll like it as much as I do.

Warby Parker is an online shop that caters to our eye wear needs, be it eyeglasses or sunglasses. Their shop contains a wide array of different optical and sun wear items both for men and women. Here's a brief description of their company.

Warby Parker was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective: to create boutique-quality, classically crafted eyewear at a revolutionary price point.

Why did we name our company Warby Parker? We’ve always been inspired by the master wordsmith and pop culture icon, Mr. Jack Kerouac. Two of his earliest characters, recently uncovered in his personal journals, bore the names Zagg Parker and Warby Pepper. We took the best from each and made it our name.

With summer being near, I couldn't live without a pair of sunnies. Good thing Warby Parker have a huge collection of sunwear to choose from. Here are a few of my favoite pairs from their shop. Im more of a wayfarer/aviator girl, so my choices are most likely those kind of sun glasses. Check em out ;)

These sunnies are just to die for! I'd love to get my hand on these amazing glasses. Aside from sun glasses, they also have optical glasses with really chic and cool designs as well as fab retro eyeglasses . Here are my favorite from their optical glasses collection.

I never thought eye glasses can be this pretty. The different frame shapes are beautiful, and will definitely fit each and every person's style and preference.

Of course, you can find all these and more at Warby Parker. Just check out their sunwear and optical glasses selection, available for both men and women. You can choose from a lot of designs, colors and sizes.

Review: 24 Card Case Credit Card Organizer from Born Pretty Store

I don't really have that much cards, but since I constantly forget where I placed some of them (because they are literally everywhere in my room), I decided to purchase a card organizer. I saw one from Born Pretty Store and the wide assortment of colors sold me so I instantly purchased one.

I chose the red color because I want to spot it immediately from my pile of stuffs. Red stuffs are easily spotted most of the time.

I mentioned that Born Pretty had them in lots of colors, and here are the rest of the choices. The colors are soft like candy. Oh, the mint one is also pretty!

Price: $2.99
    Description: Leatherette Card Case
    Condition: New
    Size: 11 cm x 7 cm (Approximate)

    More details:
       - Colorful card case
       - Fashionable design
       - The surface looks like leather but it is leatherette.
       - Enables you to put your credit card, band card together.
       - Save 24 cards.
       - Easy to carry your cards with you.
       - Made from durable PVC & PU.

    Package includes:
       - Card Case x 1

And here's my very own pink credit card organizer. There are actually 24 slots, but I have only filled a few of them. I am just so happy to finally have all my IDs and cards in one place because it definitely made carrying and looking for something easier. And also I dont have to worry about losing them because I know I wont lose it if I just keep it here.

One thing I dislike a little about this product is that I find it hard to open and close the lock. I dont know why, maybe perhaps because its still new that's why opening it is a little hard, but still its only a petty disadvantage which will soon wear out.

The organizer pockets are made of semi hard plastic, the ones being used as sleeves for ATM cards. Its a little longer than my cards, otherwise it fits perfectly.

Since my cards are valuable to me, I decided to place papers and other important sheets here as well. I placed my voting paper stub on the middle part so its easier to locate.

Here's a sample as to how the card will look like once its placed inside. Haha. I painted on my information. I hope nothing important else is seen *_O

Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase. Once I ran out of sleeve I will again purchase another one. I hope they will also sell one with more sleeves because it will be easier to organize if they are all in one wallet.

And if you guys want to order this one, you can always visit Born Pretty Store to purchase this cute and fashionable card organizer. Its only $2.99, Free Shipping already. Plus, if you use the coupon code JELW21 you'll get an additional 10% OFF. How cool is that? Affordable yet quality and fashionable items all in one shop :)

Review: Dermaction by Watsons Daily Facial Cleanser (For Acne Prone Skin)

Finally got the chance to use this facial cleanser from Watsons that I bought a few months ago.. What pave the way was when I lost the soap I was using. I was really worried because I have no other soap to use, and I definitely dont want to go back to using the other products I have already tried but unsure yet if I should continue using them. And then I saw this bottle on my dresser and realized I haven't tried it yet. Yep, saved by the bottle. Haha.

This cleanser actually came in pair with a moisturizer, but I cant find that one now. The brand is called Dermaction by Watsons. Hmm, maybe they now have their own product brands. This is my first time to try out this brand, and since I have been buying stuff from Watsons, I had no doubts whatsoever about this specific cleanser.

Since I am much prone to yucky oiliness and grease on my face, I chose this type which as the bottle says is suitable for normal to oily skin. I am hoping that even if the effect is only temporary, at least even for a few hours I wont bee seeing too much oil. Haha

Reading through the label, i found out what the product claims to do. At the end of the review I'll be talking about each claim but as for now, here is the list of claims.

- removes excess sebum, dirt and make up
- pH balanced
- non-drying

On the back of the packaging you can see more details about the product.

Composition:  Aqua, Disodium Laureth Sulfoscuccinate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerin, Hydroxyproplmethylcellulose, Butylene Glycol, PEG-60 Almond Glycerides, Caprylyl Glycol, Carbomer, Nordihydroguaiaretic Acid, Oleanoic Acid, Phenoxyethanol, PEG-150 Distearate, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate,Parfum, Methylparaben, Polysorbae-20, Panthenol, Tetrasodium EDTA. 

And since its a small sized bottle, I actually was able to bring this with me everytime I travel. But I'm not really sure if they have this product in bigger containers or they only have it in this size.

The only way to open the bottle is to squeeze open its top. I would prefer if it came with a pump, spray or even the squeeze tube type, but nah I was left with no choice but to open and close the bottle everytime I use it.

The cleanser actually surprised me with its watery content. I was expecting it to be like most cleansers I have tried. Perhaps that's why it didnt came with a tube that you have to squeeze for the contents to come out because the cleanser is actually in liquid form. Not only is is like water, but it really does look like water because its colorless. And the scent? Id say this is something that they would say non scented, but still there's a faint smell or something, but its tolerable and I like the smell.

After using it for days I found out that it doesn't give me breakouts which is a good thing because usually I'd go bad after using most commercial beauty products. To sum up my observation, here are some of the pros and cons that I have observed while using this product

- nice smell
- comes in small sized bottle, perfect for travel
- does not create bubble or foam that much
- does not dry my skin or irritate me
- does not give me breakouts
- cheap and readily available
- quite a hassle to open
- a little messy since its watery

Obviously, the positives outweigh the negatives, which are just petty cons anyway. So if asked if I would recommend this product? I'll say yes, if you are willing to try a new product. After all, its quite affordable and is sold at Watsons, you can easily find one and try it out to see if the result will make you happy. As for me, Im going to buy another bottle once I finished this one.

Nivea Energy Fresh Anti Perspirant Deodorant in Lemongrass

I just realized that I ran out of my current deo, and just when I am about to go somewhere.. So I had no choice but to go and find something that will have to do for a while, or until I can buy again my current deo. I am using something from the same brand which is Nivea, but its the spray on type. I figured that it iss better to use than the traditional roll on ones because I have a feeling that the latter stains the arm pit parts of my shirts. Just my luck that I ran out of it :|

I wasn't really looking for specifics when I bought this, just that I really have to have a deodorant regardless of what it is. Lol. And so I picked up this mini roll on from Nivea. I was surprised to see that its quite crystal clear, something that's new to me. Maybe its from another line of deodorants or what.

There were actually a lot of choices to choose from, and I happen to grab this bottle with the scent of Lemongrass. I had the chance to smell it when I used it and it wasn't bad either. The scent is not too strong, but its definitely there. It has the scent of freshness.

This is just my temporary stuff, so I opted for the smallest size. I got this for only a dollar, more or less.

At first I thought if this was a mistake or a joke, because how can a roll on be water like? The last ones I had didn't look anything like this. But maybe they have realized that the lotion like texture of the old ones really stains clothes. So yeah, I hope that this doesn't leave any marks on my shirts.

What type of deodorant do you prefer, this or the spray type? I used to like this one before, but then I learned that the sprayed on ones are better.
