Anime | Currently Watching: Log Horizon (ログ・ホライズン)

I don't even remember how I stumbled across this anime, but basically I've just started watching this new anime series by the name of Log Horizon (ログ・ホライズン). It's really good! I'm really enjoying it so far, and according to Twitter so are quite a few other people, and for good reason! I'm up to episode seven at the moment, and I'm most definitely going to watch it all the way through to the end.

The show revolves around a young man by the name of Shiroe, who is one of millions to play the global MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) Elder Tale (エルダー・テイル). During the game's twelfth expansion pack update Novasphere Pioneers (ノウアスフィアの開墾), the thirty thousand Japanese gamers and several thousand worldwide players that are all logged on at the time of the update, find themselves transported into the game itself! Shiroe, and every other player, awakes to find himself in the body of his avatar, an Enchanter with the powers to cast superb support spells. He quickly teams up with his in-game friends Naotsugu, a Guardian with an "open pervert" disposition whom he was in the Debauchery Tea Party with, and Akatsuki, a beautiful Assassin with a penchant for kneeing Naotsugu in the face when he makes his perverted comments, who has helped Shiroe complete many raids before now.

Since everyone became trapped, the world of Elder Tale has taken a turn for the worse; players have started fighting players, and have begun teaming up and forming large guilds in order to protect themselves from other players and guilds, and to also make a bid for becoming in charge of the world. This is what I've gathered so far, but mostly I've just enjoyed watching this trio adventure across the land, helping out friends and people where they can, and trying to convince Shiroe of the benefits of forming a guild, who is supremely against joining any, or forming one of his own.

So far, I can't get enough of this series. It's funny, amazing to watch in terms of visuals at least, and watching Shiroe and the others learn how to use their game moves in what is now real life is actually really interesting. I can't even explain how much Elder Tale has made me want to join an MMORPG again (I may have created another little 10 day free trial account on World of Warcraft again, and no, I'm not sorry), because to be quite honest I think I'd love it if I got sucked into a game world! Log Horizon really is captivating in terms of both story and characters, and I personally love the concept, I think it's fucking ingenious, and really unique. Overall, 10/10, would bang. I can't wait for the next episode!

Recommendation:Yes! If you love gaming, unique storylines, and characters you can really get along and empathise with, then Log Horizon is the anime series for you, no doubt about it. It's fun, funny, and full of fantasy, which is just perfect for me :)

Beauty | Geo Princess Mimi Chocolate Brown (Bambi Series) Circle Lenses Review

Long time no see! I won't waste your time whining on about why I haven't been able to blog for the past month or so, but during this time I finally managed to get my greedy mitts on a pair of circle lenses from Pinky Paradise! I've wanted a pair for aaaaaaages, and I finally had a spare bit money and an occasion for trying them out: a Halloween party!

I always knew exactly what I wanted my first pair of circle lenses to be. I wanted the largest brown ones I could find so that they could blend in with my natural eye colour, and not be too noticeable. I wanted to be able to put them in, maybe add a little mascara, and feel like I'd done my eye make-up in a way, y'know what I mean? Put my lenses in, and feel ready to go without doing a full face of make-up. Now, I bought the Geo Princess Mimi Chocolate Brown lenses from the Bambi Series, so that wish didn't turn out exactly how I planned it, because these lenses are way too big to get away with every day wear as they're 15.0mm, the largest size lenses you can buy. I think that the next time I invest in a pair of lenses (which will hopefully be soon as they're ace :D), I'll treat myself to a pair of 15.00mm violet/blue/green lenses, as well as a pair of 14.8mm or 14.5mm brown lenses which I can get away with using for every day wear without them being too noticeable.

These are the ones I bought:

And here's how they looked on! Forgive the pictures, they recommend putting the lenses in before putting on make-up so as to lesson the risk of contaminating them, so please enjoy my awful bare face and still damp hair pre-party get up. Here are a couple for comparison between the lens and my regular, boring eyes ahahaha.

Without flash, one lens in on right eye (my left aha)

With flash, lens in right eye for comparison.
My eye looks wicked pink and sore, but that's my bad, it took me so long to get the lens in because I'd never put even a regular contact lens in my eye before, that the lens completely dried out and caused a bit of irritation when I finally managed to put it in.

Anddd the finished result, minus flash, plus make-up :)

Bonus picture of me drunk at said Halloween party... I'm so attractive.

Overall, I love these lenses! As soon as I (finally) managed to put them in, I felt like a freaking anime character. It was insane. The enlargement is off the charts, they were comfortable to wear all night long, and despite the contrast between my real eye colour and the colour of the lens when I take a picture with flash, in real life they blend in so well! I can't wait to try more colours when I get a bit of spare money, and I'm looking forward to wearing them on a night out with my friend Ashleigh this Saturday, we're going out 'cause it's her birthdayyyyyyyyyyy :) Any Fallowfield/Manchester-based bloggers, hollaaaaaaaaaaa!

Have you tried Circle Lenses? Are you interested in trying them out? Let me know!
