That title was a little bit of a mouthful wasn’t it?! Anyway, as you will see from these photos, I have two things to show you. My wonderful new glasses and a little something in my hair…
(These glasses were not sent to me in payment for this post and this post is not sponsored, I just wanted to share with you where I got my glasses from!)
First up are my new glasses. I have a bit of history with wearing glasses to be honest with you. From the age of about 12, I was told that the reason I couldn’t see the blackboard (yep, we had blackboards when I was at school, crazy huh?!) was because one of my eyes wasn’t working as well as the other one, and that from now and for the rest of my life, I would need glasses when reading and using a computer. I remember my first pair of glasses; a round, Harry Potter, style frame in a mix of red and green – so stylish! From then on as my eyes got worse, I would have new lenses and therefore new frames. And to be honest, I hated every pair. I would be ushered out from the examination room to choose a new frame, with about 10 minutes to choose. You really can’t tell in that short amount of time if you really like the glasses or if they suit you, so I would always end up not wearing the ones I had chosen because I would decide a few weeks down the line that I didn’t like them or they didn’t feel right.
So a few months ago, when I decided I needed to have my eyes checked, I walked away with my prescription and looked online for any sites that would do a try before you buy service, and that’s when I stumbled across Direct Sight. You can pick up to 4 different styles, and have them sent to your front door to try at home, meaning you can keep them on for a few days to get a feel for how they fit and ask your friends what they think of them. I picked these ones in black and brown and tried them both in the trial at home service. In the end, I realised they were doing a buy one get one free offer at the time so I had them both, but it’s such a great idea and meant that I have finally got a pair of glasses (actually 2!) that I love and want to wear all the time, even if I don’t need to!
Second up, have you noticed a little extra colour in my hair in these photos?! The lovely people over at Undercover Glamour sent me these pink clip in hair extensions to try out. I think they are amazing, and I love this soft pink shade that I got! They are just like normal hair extension with the clip at the top and they simply pop into your hair to add a little colour without the hassle and permanency of dyeing it – I love them and want to get them in all the other colours now!
(The hair extensions were sent to me for the purpose of this post.)
