Woman Wore Different Colored Contacts For One Week
When I was in middle school, I wore contacts. Colored contacts to be exact. I already have light brown eyes, so once I got to high school, I wanted to make things up a notch. i decided to get hazel contacts and for years people thought they were my natural eyes. My ex-boyfriend never knew until I personally told him that my eyes were indeed light brown and not hazel. He was extremely surprised. As the years progressed, I realized the color contact trend just wasn't for me and I would much rather embrace my natural eye color. Although it seems as if the contact craze has calmed down a bit, there are still a handful of people rockin' eyes that aren't theres. While some look rather realistic, others look extremely fake. A woman wanted to do a social experience to see if different eye colors could improve your life. For one week, she wore different colored contacts and the results are actually rather interesting. Contact Color: Blue 'I first tried on these deep blue lenses on a Friday, with an audience of fellow Byrdie editors. I was immediately struck by the way that the contacts allow a ring of my natural color to shine through around the pupil, and I loved the contrast between the dark aqua and my given brownish-green—it was striking but somehow still very believable.' Contact Color: Grey 'I've grown to love my natural eye color, but my inner 12-year-old—the one who wanted light eyes SO badly—was so excited to try out this gray-blue pair. Sure enough, I felt like a completely different person after slipping these on, like I could command and intimidate a room with just a steely stare.' Contact Color: Green 'I had barely sat down in a meeting when the colleague seated next to me peered intently into my eyes. "Uh, what's up?" I said with a frozen smile. "Just trying to see what color you're wearing today," she said. Ah. I had actually forgotten I had the contacts in to begin with—a common theme during my days with the green pair, but not an unfortunate one at all. Since they're so similar to my natural color, the effect was subtle but flattering, not unlike the Acuvue Define lenses I've tried in the past.' Have you ever worn colored contacts or contacts at all? What color did you prefer out of the three above? @alywoah @marshalledgar @humairaa @sophiamor @jazziejazz @ButterflyBlu @VeronicaArtino @TessStevens @buddyesd @EasternShell @primodiva93 @LAVONYORK @amobigbang @shannonl5 @LizArnone @MyAffairWith @hikaymm
You'll Never Guess What People Eat At The Movies Across The Globe
Yuck. There are hundreds of countries around the world sitting in movie theaters across the globe. One big difference is the food they eat while in the audience. From dried bugs to salted candies, world customs really have their own distinct palette. Though Americans believe there's nothing in the world that could be better than a nice bag full of buttery popcorn, they are in for a huge surprise. Check out the movie theater snacks from around the world. You're going to be shocked. USA: Salted, Buttery, Popcorn It's crunchy. It's addicting. It's SO American. Popcorn is a very traditional snack without a ton of calories...that is, if you don't drench it in a pool of butter and salt. Popcorn has had a long standing reservation in our culture, primarily since corn is such in abundance within our country. We've muti-purposed corn to be just about anything but popcorn is still our favorite creation. Just remember, a small popcorn won't get you through intermission. A large popcorn will make you feel fat. But who cares, right? Great Britain: Sugared Popcorn Why am I not surprised that Great Britain would have a seamlessly more proper snack? Compared to American, the Brits always seem to do the exact opposite. From my personal view, I just don't understand the thrill of sugary popcorn. However then again, kettle corn and caramel corn is a huge success in the States. Brits are notorious for their bitter drinks such as coffee and tea paired with a very decadent and sweet dessert. I guess it's only fitting, pinkies up. Japan: Iwashi Senbei The first idea that popped into your mind was probably not that these are sardine rice crackers. The crisps are baked in sugar and soy sauce to give them their distinct taste. Rice is a very traditional food within the country so it's no surprise it is a snack as well. And with Japan being a very dependent country on its seafood industry, it's obvious that a leading snack brand would be fish based. Still interesting. Brazil: Roasted Ants Okay GROSS. As an American, I will never understand the love for eating bugs. We get it, they are packed with a ton of protein and have a nice crunch. But it's so taboo in American culture. On the other hand, Brazilians loves them. It's an aphrodisiac, or food that stimulates sexual desire, which could be the reason for why Brazilians are such a fan. Talk about a passive aggressive way to show your date that you want to hook up. Norway: Dried Reindeer Meat Somewhere in the North Pole, Santa is crying. This food seems so fitting though for the region. Reindeer meat is cut and then dried for a chewy taste. Very similar to beef jerky in the States. Reindeer meat boasts very low fat and high protein. However, I can't seem to feel sympathy for Rudolph & his gang once they find out that the Norwegians are snacking on their friends. Guess Norway is going to become the land of misfits toys soon enough... South Korea: Dried Cuttlefish I guess this goes hand in hand with popcorn in the Asian nation. With a meaty texture and briny flavor, apparently South Koreans can't get enough. It can be seasoned in a variety of flavors. Though they're also fans of roasted chestnuts, dried cuttlefish still frequently comes out as the fan favorite. I still don't know what a cuttlefish is. Russia: Beluga Caviar This is reserved for the rich and only the rich but a very common wealthy delicacy. Though the average folk may not be accustomed to eating the beluga caviar themselves, they know exactly who is receiving it when they attend the movie theater. Apparently movies in Russia are a more fancy affair, something Americans and other world countries would gawk at. With Russia being known to have extreme customs, this one tops the cake. Greece: Souvlaki Okay, this looks delicious. Lamb or beef souvlaki will be a fit for an Grecian attending an outdoor movie. They're tender and savory and it's already making my mouth water. Grecians are notorious for having the best food in the world and it's no surprise that their movie theaters also come with a wide delicious variety of choices. Please fly me to Greece because I'm starving. Netherlands: Salty Licorice This could be the most hated snack in America. Black licorice is a very distinct taste that very few people enjoy. In America, our black licorice contains a lot of sugar. However in the Netherlands, they salt their licorice with ammonium chloride which gives eaters a tongue-numbing sensation. Is this candy a drug? No thank you. India: Samosas This is my favorite. Look how good that looks! Bollywood theaters are all the rage in India far more popular than any Western movie. Samosas are potato stuffed pastries that taste as good as they look. With Bollywood movies comes a delicious combo of chutney and cheese sandwiches and vada pav, potato fritters in a bread bun. I could definitely ship this idea in the USA.
Mobile Phone Photography with Dima Gavrysh
If anyone tells you that a real photographer can't use a mobile phone camera to take pictures, tell them they are wrong. Any device that captures an image can be used in photography, and any of these devices can create (subjectively) beautiful imagery. Dima Gavrysh is a photographer who has mastered the use of his mobile phone camera in his work. Dima has been embedded with the US Army in Afghanistan documenting and creating projects such as Soldiers of Zerok and Inshallah (pictured). He approaches the subject matter of war with an outstanding ability to capture the tension and charge of the experience with an artist's eye. Dima has produced many compelling series involving this subject in collaboration with charitable organizations such as Doctors Without Borders. Dima's project Inshallah explores the romanticization of war that intertwines with his personal experiences growing up in Ukraine. Here is was Dima says about the project: "Inshallah (God willing in Arabic) is a project that explores the Soviet and American occupations of Afghanistan, and draws on my childhood fantasies that romanticize the military and intertwine with my past and present personal conflicts I create a dark fairytale filled with my fears and dreams, based on my fascination with the army’s strength and order, set on the front lines of what has become America’s longest running war in history. Mesmerized by the complexity of the Afghan chaos, I strive to better comprehend my personal relationship to these wars: two empires, two mentalities, same battlefield, twelve years apart.."
EPL Match Day 22: What we learned
Match Day 22 is just about in the books in the EPL, with one match later today yet to be played (Watford vs. Swansea). Let's recap the weekend's action. Rooney won't quit You just can't count that man out. He's now scored in four consecutive matches for United and is keeping this team afloat on his own, answering critics left, right, and center. United weren't great in their 1-0 win over Liverpool (Rooney's goal was actually their only shot on goal), but they played extremely well defensively, as they have done for most of the season, and Rooney knocked in a scramble off a corner kick from good work by Fellaini to steal the win late on. Tough loss for Liverpool, who just have not gotten enough results recently. They can pretty much say goodbye to their top-4 hopes. City are reemerging as favorites Does anyone actually want to win the title? Arsenal and Leicester continue to drop points (both are winless in their last two), leaving the top of the table open again for Manchester City to climb their way back. After their 4-0 shellacking of Palace (sigh), they are within 1 point of joint leaders Leicester and Arsenal. Kun Aguero looked the best he has all season in this one and it's time that we start really looking at City as one of the favorites - not just handing it to Arsenal. Game on. The relegation battle is on This is the time in each season when it feels like even the teams at the very bottom start to put together some form and work to fight their way out of the basement. It's true of Villa, who now have four points in their past two matches (though they are still 8 points from safety); it's true of Newcastle, who surprisingly beat West Ham 2-1 to move up to 17th; and it's true of Bournemouth, who look like they may be staying up after all, especially after a big 3-0 win over rivals Norwich. I love watching the teams at the bottom of the table scrap for points, and today's Watford - Swansea match is a huge won for the Welsh side. Did you see any of the matches this weekend? @InPlainSight @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @MarcusJiles @DerekGumtow @havic @yaakattackk @bnzatton @SherzTYCi @krishntejanand @addri @mishthi @andwas @NimishMathur @Sydsocquet @starli @kyleatekwana @BenjiPhilip @Eduardo14 @AshfakEjaaz @EmanueleYagoda
