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!!

Bex’s Mid Year Beauty Favourites 2018

This year I have been quietly chugging away in the back ground testing out some new - to me - products (or versions of) and I’ve decided it’s time to share. I guess I’ve been inspired by the multiple people this week who told me off for making them need to buy pretty things. So here are some pretty things for you that you may just want to buy even if you don’t need them! Ha!


I’ve been obsessing over Estèe Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Eye for months and I just can’t get enough of it’s balmy texture. Someone recently asked on InstastoryQuestions - mouthful - what my night time routine is and while most of the products change from night to night, this fella is consistent. 
A trio of delights here that took me by surprise. I recently declared that I had found my perfect mascara, but that doesn’t mean I won’t keep trying new ones. Wet’n’Wild Lash Renegade* really surprised me with its impact and, whilst the spool isn’t my all time favourite, I am really digging it.  Another Wet’n’Wild favou…

I think I’m turning Gluten Free

If you didn't sing the title of this blog to the tune of 80's classic "I think i'm turning Japanese" by The Vapours, then we can't be friends. I'm joking. Mostly.
Gluten Free is a pretty big buzz word these days and, having grown up with a Coeliac mum, and two aunts and various extended family members, from a young age, I’ve always been keenly aware of the impending possibility that some day I may get the dreaded news. Well that day has come.

As if I didn’t have enough issues trying to cope with IBD and various other issues already I now have to be one of those people who reads labels, double checks menus, and asks restaurant staff “exactly how is that prepared?” To try and avoid cross contamination.  One of the things I vowed during these early stages of my transition in to living a gluten free life, I am not going to be a complete nazi about things. Yes I’ll avoid binging on donuts and huge amounts of pasta and bread - I made that mistake once - but I gave…

Lush Belfast Gets a Glowup!

Stop everything you're doing right now. Lush Belfast have opened their new store in castle lane and it is everything and more and you need to go to it now. Ok maybe not now - it's quite late at night while I'm writing this - but you know what I mean. 




To give you an idea of size, the new giant sized shop is split in to 5 main sections - face, body, bath, scent, hair - each of which could have taken up the old shop on their own; gone are the days of claustrophobia whilst queuing for a sniff of the latest product, now you can take a seat and relax while you try them out. Speaking of products there are a tonne of new ones to choose from, with quite a few having previously been Oxford street exclusives. Now, I'm a die hard fan of the bubble bars and bath bombs but I think my new favourite section is the wall of bath oils. Designed to looks like tiny hand made chocolates, you may want to keep an eye on the kids if you're bring them with you, according to my source (ha!) …
