Color Contact Lenses

I came across this site recently, www.contactlenshub.com

Amazed at the choice of contact lenses available and the colours are fabulous. I never thought about using colour lenses because I thought they were for people who needed eyesight correction. But here the lenses are all zero power so you can wear them even if you have glasses.

Colour contacts are not new but what is great about this lens site is the fact all the lenses are Korean made so no potentially damaging Chinese copies and they are fully certified.

The other thing I like is the choice of crazy lenses. I can’t wait for Halloween to get into the party mood. I might even go for some UV Glow in the dark lenses  which light up under a black light.

Check out the contactlenshub, I’m sure glad I did.

How to Choose the Right Belt for Your Outfit

In recent years, the belts have become more and more popular among women of different ages and wearing different styles. Today it is used not only to keep your pants or jeans where they should belong (meaning your hips or waist), but to put the pieces of your outfit together, to accentuate your waistline, or just to add some bright color to dull and boring costume. But the problem is that some people use the belt to literally ruin their entire looks by simply choosing the wrong type of it, or placing it on the wrong part of their torso (like on ribs instead of hips). In order to avoid such trouble, read along and learn how to choose a belt.

It is pretty obvious when the belt looks cheap. It doesn’t mean that you have to spend $200 dollars on a belt, as it is insane. But take a close look at it when buying – a $10 faux leather belt most likely will not look nice. Try looking for a more quality belts, but which are on a sale – you can find some really great pieces that would be affordable but look fabulous.

Before buying a belt decide if you are going to wear in on your natural waist or at the waistline of your pants or jeans. That is important, as the natural waist of most women is smaller, and when you are, for example, buying a belt online, consultant should always mention if the belt was designed for natural waist or not.

Today you don’t have to get a belt that would match your shoes and purse color – even more, it shouldn’t really match. Just make sure that these three elements are of the same style and color palette.

Don’t you ever get a belt that is too small. You don’t need another depression trigger in your closet, right? If you do so, so will end up crying over the belt that just won’t hook after you’ve eaten too much pizza.

Now to the types of belts.

Skinny belts are today’s staples of every wardrobe. Being subtle and thin (usually no more than half an inch wide), these need no belt loops, which allows you to wear them at your natural waist. Try getting these of different colors, as they may fit in every style and outfit all year round.

Medium sized belts (about an inch wide) are the perfect ones to wear in the belt loops you have on your pants. Purchase some of a neutral color like tan, blush or grey, as they are pretty universal. Just don’t try to use them to make the jeans fit – if your pants are too big, small belt will not help your look, it will ruin your image.

Wide belts are the most controversial of all, as here the wrong width will not complement your body at all, especially if you are not 5’11, but 5’4 as an average woman.

Making up your mind? Look through the belts you can find in London.
