Fashion Lenses


Grey - that's the eye color that has always captivated as well as terrified me. I have come to the conclusion that it depends on the individual with the eyes. While everyone is blessed with their unique eye colors, some of us try out other colors that we think might suit us. Not everyone can pull this off because some eye colors are not natural to the individuals. "Who cares?" as my friend would ask. "I'm wearing blue contacts because I like blue eyes." I admire contact wearers because they are able to touch their eyeballs and have something foreign on it. I also like to see how some people would look if they had a different eye color. I have to say that some people really look good. The eye color definitely changes something on the face. You could look cute, flirty, sleepy, mean, and my personal best, dead as a result of wearing a different eye color. When I asked a lady why she had light brown contacts on (I could tell they were contacts), she said it was medicated and if she had to wear contacts, why not another color. What about the contacts that transforms you into a doll? I'm not kidding. I saw this look in a magazine about some girls' fascination with doll-like fashion and how the eye of dolls have been incorparated too. Cool huh - Well I still believe it is painful. I don't think I have the guts to try that. I appreciate regular contact lenses, thanks.

The Hunger Blame

So I love movies and that's not news. What I've really gotten into is reading a book before watching the translation of the book on the big screen. I did that for The Hunger Games because I got the trilogy as a birthday present and thought, why not finish the books before going to see the movie. I wasn't disappointed by the way. Sure the movie was not as elaborately translated like I had in my head after I read the books but I must say I was satisfied because they could have done worse. So, The Hunger Games made news - both good and bad. The good news is that the movie did well in its first week in the movie theater and has still continued to do well weeks after. But the bad news, the one that got to me personally, were some "fans" and their translation on the races, complexions, and physiques of the actors playing the characters. This made me wonder if these fans really knew how to read. Yes, sometimes the movie doesn't incorporate a 100% of the book. The screenwriters put their twists when writing the screenplay because there is no way a screenplay can contain all the lines in the book. There are things called budgets and movie times. With that said, I was disappointed in those who called themselves fans of The Hunger Games and gave a hoot about what the actress that played Rue looked like. To quote one, "Rue wasn't supposed to be black," and I was like, "Really, did you read the same book I read?" Even though that wasn't the case, why would that be a problem? Didn't Amandla Stenberg, the actress, play the character like she was supposed to? I know that we are all entitled to our opinions but if we were really taught about good manners when we were growing up, I'm sure we would know what to voice out and what not to, especially if it is really stupid. That's my opinion. What's yours?
