New Shades! | Glasses Direct

Hello!


For the past couple of weeks, I've been suffering from really painful headaches and after making a few changes to try and work out why I finally realised it was probably down to my glasses and I needed to book an eye test.

Now I'm normally quite regular with my eye tests and to be quite honest, I still have a few more months left until my next one is due but if you do suffer from any symptoms then you should definitely not wait and get it checked out!

After getting my eyes tested and finding out that my eyesight has slightly deteriorated and that I would be needing new glasses, the first place that came to mind was Glasses Direct!

I have written a review post about Glasses Direct about a year ago and since I had such a good experience, I knew I'd definitely have to go back to them. Not only do Glasses Direct have a great range of frames and some of the best deals I've seen, but they also provide frames to be trialled in the comfort of your own home!

After about 2 hours of looking through all the frames, I found the 4 that I wanted to home trial and in the post they went. Within the next 2 days, they arrived and I instantly fell in love with them all. Unfortunately, I couldn't buy them all but because they had a buy one get one free offer on at the time, I did narrow it down to two frames!

The whole process of picking my lenses and entering my prescription was really easy and I felt confident at the end that I knew exactly what I was getting. And even if I had messed up GD have an amazing free returns policy. Bonus!

Now down to the frames! My last couple of glasses have been black and to be quite honest, boring. This time I wanted colour and pattern but I eventually went with two quite similar Cat Eye tortoiseshell glasses. My favourite out of the two is definitely the Scout Millie Glasses as they're a subtle tortoiseshell effect on the outside but has a gorgeous gold glitter effect on the inside! I know no-one sees that part but GLITTER! The second pair is my sexy but classy frames a.k.a the London Retro Chelsea glasses. I really enjoyed the burgundy into tortoiseshell effect and I will definitely get a lot of use out of them in the Winter/Autumn months as all I ever wear is burgundy coloured clothes. (Yes I colour co-ordinate my glasses).

Overall the two glasses cost was just over £80 and that was including the extra protection lenses so all in all, not too bad! They came super quick and I really can't fault Glasses Direct for anything. If you're looking for new glasses then I'd definitely recommend you checking out their website!

Last Box! | Glossybox February 2017!

Hello!


I think this has been a long time coming and probably a little unexpected for some BUT after nearly two years, I am cancelling my Glossybox subscription. Yes I know, it's news of the century!

In all honesty, though I've been thinking about it for a while now as I haven't really been enjoying the products and since buying my house, I need to think about the pennies more and spending £15 a month on something I don't really want or need, seems a bit stupid.

In this month's box:

Jeanne Arthes L'Eau de Rose Perfume | £20
I'm not the biggest fan of the rose scent which is strange because I think the flowers are gorgeous. Either way, I don't think I'll be getting much use out of this perfume, maybe I can use it as a room or linen spray?

Garnier Ultimate Blends Honey Treasures Strength Restorer Balm | £4.49
I love the Ultimate Blends brand and I've even written a few reviews of them in the past so I'm really excited to give this a go. Gotta love a good hair treatment!

Ciate London Paint Pot in Iced Frappe | £9
I'm really into nude shades at the moment and this will be a perfect addition to my collection. I've already tried it out and I have to say it's SO long lasting! It's been over a week and it's all still pretty much on my nails. I class that as a win!

La Theorie Des Volcans Noir Eternae Youth Potion Face Scrub | £26
Another skincare product! I think if I rejoined Glossybox after a years time, I'll still be using all their skincare samples. Nevertheless, youth potion sounds good and I'm intrigued to see what it can do!

MeMeMe Beat the Blues in Oyster Gold | £7.25
I haven't got many MeMeMe products so I'm happy to expand my collection! Watch this space for a review!

Guest Post | 5 Top Tips on Buying a Wedding Dress Online

Hello!


Valentines’ Day is over. Some of you must have received a big surprise—Yes, I mean the proposal. That’s really the best and happiest moment for us. However, it is just a start for your couple life. To continue your happy life journey, a sweet wedding ceremony where you will wear dream bridal gown is needed. 

So, today I will share some useful skills of shopping online for your wedding dresses. Let’s face it. Online shopping is convenient and saves a lot.

1. Learn more about the shop

There are really some shops online when you search for the keyword “wedding dresses”, “cheap wedding dresses” or something else. Then how could you know if it is a legit store? Visit the store and normally there you can find some clues. A legit store contains at least the address, email address and social media. Customers will leave their reviews and problems there. If you have no idea about the wedding dress store, here I want to recommend one—uk.millybrida.org. Dresses there are really charming and fashionable.

2. Read the shopping guide and check the size chart carefully

You need to change your habit if you also buy dresses in a fixed size. One 6 size dress in one company might be the size 8 in another. So, before you place the order, read their shopping guide with patience, take the measurements, and check their size chart. It helps you find a fit dress.

3. Do ask the customer service for help

If you think the second step too difficult, just find the customer service. They will help you get the exact measurements and find a perfect dress. Do not be shy. It will take much more time if you get a dress in the wrong size. Besides the size thing, you can also ask them about anything you want to know including the exact colour of the dress, the real photos and materials.

4. Read the reviews

Reviews on each product page can help you know more about the dress quality, the popularity of the dress and even some more important information. If there are none on the website, find more on other forums. But do not judge one store according to the reviews only. Normally, one will prefer to write reviews when mad or extremely happy.

5. Find the flash sale if you have a limited budget

One store will do some promotion occasionally to attract the customers. So seize the chance and it will save you more. More discounts are given on Black Friday, Boxing Day and some other event. Just visit the site often and buy the item you want at the most suitable moment.

Hope all these tips help you find a perfect wedding dress. For girls who prefer Wedding Dresses London style, Millybridal is surely your wise choice.
