Not a Book Related Post: Uniqso and Their Amazing Customer Service

Okay, before you judge me again but my circle lenses addiction started up again. I’ve been visiting Uniqso like daily just to “window shop”. Sooooo pathetic! What’s worst is that they have a huge collection of circle lenses which makes my “trying to quit” process reaaalllyy hard! 
And oh yeah! They have a HUGE sale going on right now!!! Since they are celebrating their 2nd anniversary, EVERYTHING is buy 2 get 1 free right now! Plus you get a chance to win this:

and you get a free upgrade on the case AND free sample AND $1 lens if you buy over $50 AND 15% off for new customers. To make everything that much better, free shipping when you order over $60.
Yup. This is not going to be easy.
Because of this I’ve been in contact with them asking questions and just bugging them. AND MY GOD. THEIR SERVICE IS LIKE HEAVEN! They are so frickin’ nice that I wish every customer service in the world are like them.
I have like gazillion questions and shit and they answer them like in minutes (when they are online), and are always sooooo kind. Like seriously, what do I have to do so you guys can run all the customer services in the world? I just don’t even know how to describe how kind they are. I’ve encountered many horrible customer services in my life and gosh I just can’t stand them -___-. Gahhh! This just makes me want to cry because how perfect Uniqso’s customer service is! They seriously break my scale of holy epics! I mean they shown me stuff that I didn’t know I wanted or looked for.
So far I am debating on these lenses:
Beuberry Lumine 3 Tones Green or Blue
Beuberry Teddy Bear Pink
I.Fairy Ash Violet
I.Fairy Casper Blue
I.Fairy Jewel Violet
I. Fairy Super Cystal Pink
Beuberry Cherry Pink
I.Fairy Tofi Blue
Beuberry Vivid Blue
Barbie Pearl Black
Beuberry Iris Red
Which ones should I pick?

We are on Vacation~

Vacation Time for FireStarBooks

Hi guys! We are currently on vacation…literally. This is a scheduled post and so are some others that will soon follow. We will be back on July 21st. Any posts in between that time are scheduled. If you find mistakes in them….well shit. We won’t be able to change anything! :O Soooo…basically, enjoy your summer!

Happy Birthday Eileen!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY BABY EILEEN!!! You are so precious and darling to me. 🙂 You are always so happy, kind, and fun to talk to, it is like a breath of fresh air! I feel like I could always be myself around you because you just make me at ease. You are unique, sweet, and just FRICKIN’ AMAZING!! Do you know that my sister and I talks about your awesome reviews all the time?! 😀

Below is a condense, paraphrased conversation between my sister and I:
“I can’t write reviews. I just ramble.”
“Then read some other bloggers’ reviews and see how they control their reviews.”
“I do! I just don’t have their talents.”
“You know Eileen? She is one of my favourites, and she is so young!”
“OMG YEAH!!!”
“The way she word the reviews and everything! Soooo good!”
Guess what happened next? We fangirled and rambled. ;P
I always forget how I meet my friends, real life and online. But with a little internet help, I “remembered”. It was June 2nd, 2012. I replied you with a simple phrase “next year!!!”

You were talking about being young and BEA. Well guess what? You did went to the BEA this year and I am so glad that you had toonnnsss of fun! 😀

The next time we talked it was July 20nd during the #CoverMadnessChat. We were talking about publishers changing covers.
“#CoverMadnessChat So whatcha talking about? :D”
Next time we talked it was July 31st, I interrupted a conversation between you, Gianne, and Annabelle (both who are our friends). The conversation was about BOYS! 😛
“AAHAHA! Sorry to budge in. 😛 I think my parents rather have me liking fictional boys.”
And the next time was August 9th, when I crowned you RT Queen . 🙂 “I shall name you the RTing Queen :)”
Ahaha, we talked about Patrick, Po from Kung Fu Panda, foooood, business cards, stupid blackberry, Chinese school, song covers etc etc! Soooo many fun memories!! 😛
Speaking of song covers, YOUR SINGING!!!! <3333 Keep singing because you can sing~ :3 Heehee I stalk your YouTube all the time….*runs away*
I have known you for a year and 6 days, and you already inspired me! Being so young, yet ambitious, courageous, and EFFIN’ ADORABLE-LICOUS! (O____O wow, my vocabulary). I didn’t kid when I first tweeted you, “you are so adorable!“. I hope we stay connected for years to come! Eileen, happy birthday! 😀

PS: I haven’t forgotten your question about how to make the gif…message me and I’ll explain it ;P

Hop along to Readaholicz at 7:30, Lisseth has something to tell you ;)~

New Rating Sytem

Hi guys. Starting from June of this year, FireStarBooks will have a new rating system. The old rating system of giving out 1-5 bows had become irrelevant and consistent. Since each book's "3 bows" felt different and weighted differently. So starting from June 2013, FireStarBooks will rate each book as a PASS or FAIL.

I have been debating about this change for more than half a year now but I was talking to Kate @ exlibriskate.com about this the other day and thought "Heck! I have been thinking about this change since forever now, why not just go for it?!". So I did.

The idea first came to me when I was watching Anna & Kristina's Grocery Bag. I was inspired by Anna Wallner and Kristina Matisic' stamp of approval on cookbooks, and thought "wouldn't it be cool to do that with the books I read?".  I was unhappy with my rating system, but at that time I thought it would be too harsh of a change. Talking to Kate made me realized that I wasn't the only who thought this whole one to whatever stars rating system was flawed. I mean the new system is not perfect but I hope it will make the whole "rating" thing more consistent. It sure won't be easy to decide if a book is a pass or fail when it is on the borderline. I will have hard decisions to make in the future but I hope it is all worth it.

Hi guys. Starting from June of this year, FireStarBooks will have a new rating system. The old rating system of giving out 1-5 bows had become irrelevant and consistent. Since each book’s “3 bows” felt different and weighted differently. So starting from June 2013, FireStarBooks will rate each book as a PASS or FAIL.

I have been debating about this change for more than half a year now but I was talking to Kate @ exlibriskate.com about this the other day and thought “Heck! I have been thinking about this change since forever now, why not just go for it?!“. So I did.

I will have hard decisions to make in the future but I hope it is all worth it.

Anyway, here are the new rating widget.

I know this is harsh but I hope this will make my rating system more consistent. Do note that just because I failed the book, doesn’t mean it was a complete bust. This new system will also encourage the readers to read the reviews more so they can see why I passed it or why I failed it…..heehee sneaky eh? 😛
I hope you guys like the new change.
