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!

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!

Flutterbydreams Photography: My best ranked Photographer in the North West

Photographs, the perfect way to capture a perfect moment forever, these days you can capture them on your phone, devices and professional cameras are even affordable.

But like any profession, you can’t quite get it perfect if you don’t have the training, photography isn’t just about clicking a button, it’s about having a vision and being able to make those perfect moments happen and capture them at the right second.

The best way to make sure you have those memories to treasure forever is to hire the right photographer for the job.

Since Jack has been a baby, I’ve been going to the same person for our professional pictures, Danielle at Flutterbydreams.

My first photo shoot with her was actually supposed to be a pregnancy-bump shoot when I was pregnant with Jack at 30 weeks, but he was born at 29+5 so that didn’t happen!

But she came to do his newborn shoot, the day after his due date so he was 11 weeks old but only 5lbs! She came for around 09:30am in the morning when we had agreed and she stayed for around 5 hours! The photo shoot was in the comfort of our own home and she was so gentle and patient with Jack! He peed on her three times and she didn’t bat an eyelid.

As Jack was so premature I was extremely nervous about anyone handling him, but Danielle explained she had been specially trained to handle and pose newborns for photo shoots, I didn’t actually know you needed special training, but she explained to me how important it was that she had this training for Jack’s safety.

1621771_10202010141673804_19974834_n

It was obvious that she cared deeply about the babies and families she photographs, she has this great vision and wonderful ideas for poses and she made us feel completely at ease. We were her only clients that day and you could feel that she wasn’t rushing us at all, she took the time to rock Jack to sleep to get the perfect pictures.

My only regret is that after Mikey was born I didn’t get his pictures done, I always meant to get round to it, but we had literally just moved house and it was always on our list of things to do, I know that Danielle would have done a fabulous job photographing Mikey.

When we got married, there isn’t anyone else I would have gone to for the photography, Danielle was our first choice and she came along with another professional photographer Lauren and had the cheapest price of all the quotes I’d seen! She stayed from Bridal Prep all the way through to the First Dance and brought along a backdrop so we could do a photo booth. She wasn’t just a photographer on the day, she was a friend, nothing was too much to ask.

She waited until we were ready for our posed pictures and captured so many beautiful moments, you wouldn’t have even known she was there taking them, I received my photos within a month and there were over 600!! I’ve heard the biggest regret you can have on your big day is having a bad photographer, well we are so lucky we had Danielle, it isn’t just a job to her, you can tell she puts her heart and soul into getting the perfect pictures to treasure for a lifetime.

Shortly after our wedding I had our third baby Nicole and as you can imagine a selfie of the 5 of us together wasn’t easy to capture and getting a picture by anyone else just wasn’t cutting it, so we thought why not get Nicole’s baby pictures and a family portrait at the same time! I booked in with Danielle and she gave us a great price and the same as with Jack three years earlier she stayed for hours and waited patiently to get the perfect pictures.

As you can imagine getting a family picture with two toddlers and baby is near impossible, I wasn’t expecting any miracles, don’t get me wrong Danielle is a fab photographer but I knew my kids and how difficult they’d be to sit still and smile…well she proved me wrong.

She didn’t just get one but she got numerous pictures of us together all smiling and looking at the camera, the kids love her! At this time Mikey wasn’t speaking or making any eye contact and she managed to get him to come out of himself, it was amazing to see and even though I knew the shoot had gone well but I still couldn’t believe how perfect the pictures were when I saw them and all my friends with kids were amazed at how she’d managed to get a picture of us all looking at the camera and smiling.

I’ll continue going to Danielle at Flutterbydreams anytime I need a photographer in the future, I can’t recommend her enough! She’s everything you need in a Photographer:

✔ Professional

✔Qualified Photographer

✔Qualified in handling and posing newborns

✔Great with kids

✔Great prices

✔Patience and takes the time to capture perfect moments

✔Experience

✔High quality pictures

Prestige Flowers

I have been lucky enough to be sent a lovely bouquet by Prestige Flowers, I ordered on next day delivery and the were brought right to my door the next morning in a beautifully designed box.

There were twelve beautiful roses surrounded by Lilies and red berries, held together in a sleek black and grey bouquet placed in a black gift bag with luscious long handles for easy handling. My niece has just had a baby so I gave them to her, what a great gift to give a new mum? They are always getting gifts for the baby but what about them? They are too tired to use any products or do anything other than look after this new little person in their life, why not give them a beautiful surprise delivered straight to their door and a gorgeous bouquet to look at as well as their precious new addition.

The recipe is below, I have to say this super food is A-MAZ-ING! It tastes so good, it stretches so far, you don’t need to use much and it brings a sweet, yummy, yet subtle flavour, I didn’t think Chocolate Brownies could get any better, but this a new level of goodness.

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.

Little Lulu’s Shoes: A Review

Little Lulu’s Shoes

You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy shoes…which is kind of the same thing!

Little Lulu’s Shoes hand make shoes out of Italian leather for little babies just like my princess Nicole.

She was lucky enough to receive a pair of Little Lulu’s Ruby Tall Boots for Christmas and they are gorgeous!

DSC_0239.JPG

I’ve never been a fan of putting baby in shoes because they always seem to tough or hard for their tiny little feet, but the leather on Little Lulu’s is so soft, perfect for squidgy baby toes. I never want to take them off her feet now.

DSC_0229.JPG

If you are looking for the perfect gift for a newborn baby, then look no further. For boys or girls, Little Lulu’s have a shoe for any baby! It is the hottest new trend in baby fashion and they are even the winner’s of Bubble London’s Rising Star Award 2015.

I have a great nephew due in January so I’ll definitely be buying him a pair!
