A Review:

Freshlook Colourblend Contact Lenses by Contactlenses.co.uk

We live in a generation where you have the tools at your finger tips to try a different look daily, hairstyles, tan,make-up, clothes etc. Not to mention cosmetic surgery, we can basically change anything about ourselves to try a “different look” but what about our eye colour?


When I was kid I remember envying people with big brown eyes and wondering what I’d look like with different coloured eyes, but what can you do? You’re stuck with the eye colour you have, not that I mind my eyes, I LOVE having blue eyes but it would be nice to mix it up a bit, well now you can!

In the past few years, I’ve noticed more people wearing contact lenses that change the colour of their eyes, some actually require contact lenses for their vision, but others just want to change their eye colour, I fall into the category that don’t actually require contact lenses but want to try out a different look.

Contactlenses.co.uk stock of 4 million contact lenses, so it’s fair to say they have a wide range of options available.

I was lucky enough to be sent Freshlook Colourblend Contact Lenses in the Colour VIOLET


This was my first time EVER wearing contact lenses before so I was pretty nervous, I even watched a few tutorial videos on YouTube! I struggled at first, but it didn’t take long to pick up the niche of putting them in, if you are a first timer like me, here are some tips to putting them in (to the everyday user these might be obvious but for newbies this could be useful):

  • Take of the make-up! Yes they’ll look fab with your eye make up on but trying to put them on for the first time, with a truck load of mascara on will only end in tears….and Panda eyes.

  • Get a mirror! You need to be able to see what you are doing, if you have a mirror with a magnified side that would be even better!

  • Take it slow! Trying to put a lens in is surprisingly frustrating, at some points I wasn’t sure if my eye was watering from me prodding it so much or I was just crying from pure frustration.

Other than my five minutes of frustration with being new to contact lenses, I had absolutely no issues.

Contactlenses.co.uk sent them to me promptly and they came packaged safely in a very vibrant and well designed box. Plus I received a lens case and a bottle of sensitive eyes solution.


The lenses themselves were surprising, if I’m honest when I first looked at them, I wasn’t sure they would look much different in my eyes to my natural eye colour, because they look so lightweight and light in colour.

I was pleasantly surprised by how great and different they look to my own eye colour! The Violet is very unusual so it was quite noticeable to other people, but they also sell natural colours if you just wanted to try a different eye colour that’s more natural looking or a unique colour, contactlenses.co.uk have a whole range of options.


I have tried the lenses everyday for a fortnight and I can say you wouldn’t know you have them in and they are easy to use, so why not give them a go?

Overall I had a positive experience receiving goods from contactlenses.co.uk, I would highly recommend them for…anyone!

I have no vision problems and used them for the cosmetic purpose of changing my eye colour, but if you have vision problems and wanted lenses of any descriptions then contactlenses.co.uk is for you too!

A break from blogging

So  I’ve had a bit of a break from blogging the last few months. I’ve really missed it and feel there are so many things I have missed recording about my little monkey’s.

To re-cap I have two little boys Jack (2.5 yrs) and Michael (1.5 yrs) and write about all the trials and tribulations of being their mummy. Since I stopped blogging things have changed quite a lot, I am now expect a baby GIRL!

I will talk about my pregnancy more in upcoming posts but I’m still in shock it is a girl!

I just wanted to write a quick post about why I haven’t been blogging for a while, there has been no major reason other than life just getting in the way.

So now I have my 2yr old, 1 yr old, 20 weeks Pregnancy and my wedding in 8 weeks! Safe to say I have plenty to write about…..


A mother’s work never ends…

Is it just me or is this mummy business seriously hard work? Easy to say and before I was a mummy I thought I knew what hard work was, from the age of 16 up until I was about 22 I worked my ass off, literally, my aim was to just make as much money as possible, I’d be on my feet all day nursing and also do the 40 minute walk there and another 40 back just so the ache in my legs would make me feel I’d work that bit harder, doing 100 hour weeks I would be asleep before my head hit the pillow! 

So when my mummy friends would tell me how hard it is too look after these little ones, I thought I’m used to looking after people all day and being knackered so it can’t be that much of a shock…wrong!

Not really my fault, I mean you can describe it to someone but you will never really get it, until you’ve got kids. That feeling of constant worry 24/7, it is impossible to switch off, my mind never stops working! It’s so frustrating but yet rewarding at the same time!

I mean, don’t get me wrong, being a stay at home mother is way more rewarding than any ‘paying’ job, there’s nothing quite like when your child stares deep into your eyes with complete love, but seriously, how hard is it?!

It’s not even just the child bit, I mean, you feel sorry for yourself with the sleepless nights at the beginning, but once they start moving, OMG! Why does everyone go on about the sleepless nights and not about once they start moving and using their brains to be naughty.

It’s not even just the baby bit, it’s hard enough keeping them clean, dry, fed and entertained but amongst that how are you supposed to get washed and dressed yourself? How am I supposed to stop my washing pile growing rapidly and my house looking like a dumping ground? Then there’s the guilt for my hubby, I want to have his tea on the table for when he gets home (he doesn’t expect this but still), plus the guilt for my children, worrying if I’ve played with them enough or if they’ve had enough time out of the house and anyone that mentions a routine to me can go whistle dixie, I have a 1 year old and a 9 week old…routine ain’t happening!

I’m sure some of the older generation will look at me thinking we told you so, which you did, I was told how hard it would be and I love it, I wouldn’t change it for the world, I love my life, but my point is, there is absolutely no way to prepare anyone for motherhood fully.

Now I’m going to have to rant,

 So I took the boys to town yesterday and managed to manoeuvre the double buggy around The Card Factory & Pound land (not an easy task) as well as the miracle I got the boys in the buggy wrapped up warm, looking presentable with everything in their bag without forgetting anything! So we decided to treat ourselves to a sausage bun & hot chocolate in Diggles, sat there minding my own business, feeling quite proud to be sat with my two babies looking like I’ve got it all together (which doesn’t happen much with these 2) and some Woman comes over sticks her face in the buggy and looking quite confused she says “twins?”, even though it’s quite obvious they aren’t twins I replied proudly “Nope, 10 months apart”, she quickly backed away from them like they were a couple of ferocious lions and looked at me like I was a naughty child, points her finger at me, tuts and then says “Oh dear, I tell you what young lady you have got your work cut out for you, babies are very hard work you know!” and before I got a chance to respond she stormed off!!

So there you go, just when your feeling victorious there will always be some rude, patronising old crow to bring you crashing back down.

Oh well, I’ll just look at these two to keep me smiling 🙂
