Not so seeing eye..

*pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat...pat...pat, pat, pat........pat...pat.....*

That's the sound of me hunting down my glasses. 

Everything is a shade of blurry without them and I spend way too much time feeling my way around rooms patting stuff down trying to relocate them. 

Enter contact lenses!! I wear them pretty much everyday and have done so (on and off) for the last 8 or 9 years. My relationship with contacts got off to a rocky start, I refused to wear my glasses in school so my mum got me monthly contacts which I loved at the start but after the first week or so they got very dry and irritating. Plus with all the cleaning etc I just wasn't into it. I then moved onto dailies but trying to find a good pair that weren't drying and didn't cost the earth was proving difficult. HOWEVER! After researching online I came across a website contactlenses.co.uk which had a dupe of the Specsavers lenses that I quite liked. After using the website for a couple of months I seen they had stated a new line of dailies called Crystal 1 Day, they claimed to be brilliant and most importantly - a bargain at £7.25 per box of 30 lenses! 

Ta-Da!
I was intrigued but I thought it was too good to be true so I carried on with my normal order. Low and behold they included a free sample of the Crystal lenses with my order and they were as brilliant as they claimed. I've now been using them for 5 months and I still really rate these lenses, which I wouldn't really do with any of the others I have used! 

Their customer service is also brilliant, I had emailed them a couple of months ago about an order and it turned out there was a delay so they sent me some free lenses to tide me over. Fantastic. 

If you use contacts and are in the market for a really great and inexpensive brand then definitely check these out. Also, if you use this link (or the one above) you should get 5% off your first order contactlenses.co.uk 
If it doesn't work let me know your email in a comment below and I shall email you a new link :)

Please note I have not been asked/paid to write this I am just genuinely impressed with the company and the lenses! 

Remember to have regular eye tests!!

Benito Brow Bar Belfast opens in Topshop Victoria Square

There's a new brow bar in Belfast and they are set to take the town by storm. Located on the ground floor of Topshop Victoria Square, in the accessories and make-up section, Benito Brow Bar promises to offer quick, professional service to Belfast's fashionistas. You may think it's a bit strange to have a brow bar in a clothes shop but Topshop's London branches have hosted nail and hair bars such as WAH Nails and BLEACH London. These brands have gone on to become huge successes across the UK's high streets with books and their own product lines on sale. Beauty and Fashion go hand in hand according to Topshop and brows are just the latest trend they are setting.  I was lucky enough to spend an evening with the girls at Benito Belfast and along with a few other bloggers, received a demo of the Benito process and a cheeky cupcake. We were then all treated to a consultation and our own treatments. I went for just a simple threading as I'm already dark and I'm not …

Faeriwood Kitchen: on tour at Hillmount Barbecue Academy

There's nothing quite like a glimpse of bright sunlight peeking through the clouds to send us scurrying to the supermarket for a barbecue meat pack and some burger buns but at Hillmount they have news for you, you can barbecue all year round, in any weather, and still have the most amazing meals, quickly! 
This week I had the chance to attend Hillmount Barbecue Academy, on the outskirts of Belfast, and their three hour BBQ Lesson. In that short time we chilled out, learnt a few recipes and cooked a three course meal! Gone are the days of waiting hours for your coals to heat up and cook your sausages to a crispy black char. Step away from that disposable barbecue and treat your grill like your oven and you'll be having flame grilled delights every week just like our Austrailian and American buddies. 
Here are just a few of the things I learnt during our lesson





Temperature is key
Every dog has it's day and every meat has it's optimum temperature. For chicken you want to get …
