Freshlook Colourblend Lenses: Contactlenses.co.uk | A Review

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?

fabh0181

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!

Contactlenses.co.uk | Freshlook Colourblend | Review

I just LOVE coloured contact lenses!

I’ve always wondered what I’d look like with different coloured eyes and now it’s easy to find out!

Contactlenses.co.uk sell a whole range of different contact lenses and I’ve been sent these Freshlook Colourblend Contact Lenses to try and they are the colour VIOLET!

Which I’m very excited about!

So I’ve done an introductory video on my Vlog and will be posting a full review on here and my YouTube Channel when I’ve tried them for a fortnight.

So far I can say they come in great packaging and are delivered super fast! You get a big bottle of solution, lens case and the lenses themselves plus some great instructions. They are safely and well packaged, plus the most important thing…they look amazing!

Plus there is an entire range of colours from your everyday blues, greens and browns to extraordinary colours such as Amethyst and Misty Grey! There’s tonnes more to choose from, plus the range of contact lenses themselves vary massively!

I would highly recommend contactlenses.co.uk not only for the vast range of contact lenses they have but also for the great service, fast delivery and great quality packaging, plus of course the great product!

Baby Wings Dummy Clip: A Review

I call them dummies you might call them pacifiers, whatever you call them, they are baby silencers!

Not everyone uses them, I was undecided whether I wanted to use them when I had my first child and then when he was in NICU they gave him one, so the choice was taken out of my hands, but I’m so happy they did. They are the perfect comforters and did you know they reduce the risk of SIDS?! It’s a no-brainer really.

DSC_0688.JPG

The only downside is losing them! I swear there is a dummy eating monster in my house, they disappear or end up, somehow behind Nicole’s head or underneath her back, if only there was a great product to stop us losing these essential pacifiers that give us five minutes peace….well look no further!

BABY WINGS!! They have created these amazing clips, that tie safely to your little ones dummy/pacifier and therefore prevent them losing it (and if they have older siblings like my little baby girl does, it deters them stealing it).

DSC_0591.JPG

They are beautifully bright and colourful, my little girl just loves looking at the different designs on them, the material is soft and completely safe, made out of the highest quality materials.

The design of the clip is completely universal so it can go with whatever your little one is wearing! Plus they are unisex so can be shared between boys and girls. They are 100% polyester and machine washable, which is great since we know how easily our little ones get mucky!

DSC_0678.JPG

The packaging they come in are adorable, you get a pack of three which is great and very handy! Plus the loop it comes on is very useful for somewhere to store them safely when they aren’t being used. They come packaged safely and delivered very quickly, I got them the day after I ordered and I hadn’t even asked for next day delivery.

DSC_0548.JPG

The website is great and the Amazon shop is awesome, plus they have some new cool designs coming soon so keep your eyes peeled! On of the best things about Baby Wings  is how low price they are! They are completely affordable for a pack of three great dummy clips that are made by passionate people who want to give your baby the best.

STEAM AHEAD! DIY FOR KIDS: A Review

STEAM AHEAD! DIY FOR KIDS: A Review

In an age of tablets, laptops, androids and everything electronic it is easy for children to miss out on the skills of how to complete DIY activities and let’s face it, those of us who were kids when there weren’t devices are pretty rusty when it comes to these fun skills, well look no further…

Steam Ahead is an activity packed book for parents and kids aged 4-10, it introduces our kids to the magic of electronics, game and toy designing, printing, understanding basic scientific principles and most importantly, they’ll have a blast making them.

STEM or STEAM is an acronym and stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.

If the fact that this book is on £1.57 for the kindle version and £7.87 for the paperback, but it is literally packed out with activities!

How often do we say that we buy kids expensive gifts and the end up making their own games out of the box or wrapping paper? Well now they have their very own guide of how to make their own games and it also improves their skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.

We know how hard it is to get kids to actually sit down and concentrate, well this guide gives them fun activities to create using their brains and hands which ultimately will improve their concentration skills, plus it’s a great bonding activity for parent and child or even for siblings/friends to do together and build their team work skills.

There are coloured difficult levels to work out what is best for which child, how great is that?! We all know kids develop at different levels and paces, now you have a guide of 1-5 difficult level.

What is even better is the activities are actually projects that kids WILL want to do, light up dance pads, pop up cards (great with Christmas around the corner), handmade soaps, bubble blowers, cloud lanterns etc. It’s so exciting!

The book also contains a list of materials so you can be prepared for doing the activities, there’s a full list at the back and short lists on each activities page, plus the activities themselves are short and easy to follow.

Kids like to move at a fast pace and it’s always best not to over complicate building new skills, so this guide is perfect for simplifying activities and making them easy to read.

The bright colours, great pictures and easy to read instructions make this the perfect guide for kids, with Christmas around the corner why not give your child the gift of skills and fun (plus it’s super cheap to buy).

Overall this book is the perfect activity filled, educational and most importantly fun guide you could get for yourself and your children, what are you waiting for…here are the links you need:

Bidvine -Hire the right pro for the job: A review

 

Is it just me or is searching the internet for the service you need pretty tedious?

Plus how are you supposed to know who are genuinely trustworthy? Look no further…

Say HELLO to Bidvine!

Bidvine is a London-based local services tech startup, connecting customers with the right service provider, so like Tinder but for local services!

A handy website that not only finds the service you need but only uses the trustworthy ones!

The greatness of this site doesn’t stop there! How? I hear you ask…

Well they take your postcode and then take some more information about what it is you’re looking for.

1.jpg

I needed a baby photographer, so I asked for one on Bidvine, it was a quick and easy as that! Here’s the questions I was asked:

 

Then you enter your phone number and the bids come rolling in…

I chose to just receive texts but you can get phone calls within 15 minutes I already had 5 offers!

15

I really can’t believe how simple and easy it is!

So the tool itself was great for finding services, once you’ve submitted your request and the bids come rolling in you get a link with each individual texts which takes you directly to the Bidvine site with a message from the company who have quoted your request. It includes the name of their company, reviews from others who have used their service and a direct message to you!

All this just from a 30 second request I put in?! Where has Bidvine been all my life!?

No longer do you need to spend hours scouring search engines, put a few minutes into Bidvine and let them do the hard work for you!

Personally I feel this is a tool everyone needs! Think about it…you want the service, they want your business, so it should be easy for you (the customer) to find what you want, for the price you want and to know it’s a trustworthy service.

It is currently based in London but covers the whole country!

For the purpose of this blog post I searched for a photographer, but there are no restrictions to the services provided by Bidvine as long as they are rated they have it!

What better gift than the gift of cake, with the festive season coming up you could cater to the entire family from Football toppers for Dad to Frozen toppers for little girls, they have them all!

The website is really easy to use!

I chose what toppers I wanted, uploaded the pictures and went through check out within a matter of a few minutes!

I chose a range of cakes to show some great ideas and how great photos and logos come out on the cakes.

I chose a large cake topper for my Niece’s Baby Shower, they had a template design on the website so I just typed in her name and the date of her baby shower and they created it for me! It came as a round template (as I’d chosen) but on a rectangle piece of icing, so I could either cut round for a circle cake (which I did) it could of gone straight onto a rectangular cake, so there are a couple of options.

IMG_6269.JPG

I also got 12 cupcake toppers, they could have all been the same or all different. I chose six images so got two of each.

As you can see my blog logo stands out great, I think this is such a great way for businesses of any type to put their logo out there! I know I’d remember seeing a companies logo more if it was on a cake than just a card!

The photographs of my children are so clear and the kids loved it seeing their faces on the cakes! I thought it could be great for a Christening or a Birthday party!

Of course I got some Christmas pictures too! There are some Christmas designs on the website to choose from or you could upload your own image, logo or picture that’s Christmassy.

Whether it’s for a gift, a party or even as part of the spread on Christmas day, these cake toppers make it extra special over the festive period!
