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!!

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems. This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take. And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low

IMATS London 2013 Haul featuring Nars, Crown Brush UK, OCC & more!

Hello Lovelies!! And how are we this fine day? I'll be honest with you I'm completely shattered but it's all been worth it as I had an amazing time at IMATS this weekend. I'll be posting some photos of the show itself shortly (I need to wait first of all to see which photos are chosen for the Irish News article Bexberry is writing - Sounds quite fancy doesn't it!) but before then I thought I'd show you the important stuff... My Haul!! As you may have seen from my Instagram I went a little brush crazy with a total of 10 brushes! First up and top of my shopping list was the Louise Young  foundation brush, Bex had picked it up last year and has raved about it ever since. And since learning that stipple brushes actually aggravate dry skin and cause it to flake (!!!) I was on the hunt for a new brush and this was it. Have to say 3 days in & I'm loving it. Already I notice a difference in the longevity of my foundation just from this one brush! Nex

Le mini macaron gel manicure kit review

Can we talk about how long it's been since I've done a nail post? Too long. Far too long! Well wait no more because I have the cutest little product to show you! I picked Le mini macaron in Sephora. It was clearly over priced at around €30 but completely irresistible to my gel obsessed self (hey, it's sort of my job so I have an excuse) especially in my Sephora daze where I went into shove-everything-in-the-basket mode.  No regrets.  The kit comes in 4 colours, I chose peach because I love saying le péché in French and I LOVE the colour peach. It's the cutest little kit that comes with a usb cable, a little nail file and a cuticle pusher as well as some remover wipes and a European plug. The latter two remain completely unused.  In Sephora itself you can buy stand alone polishes in a huge assortment of colours but to be honest, I wouldn't buy these polishes again. Single step UV polishes (no base or top coat needed) sound great but there is
