Life | Glasses Direct Home Trial

Hello!

I've been wearing glasses since I was in high school and as much as you'd think I'd be used to what I can only describe as a palava of finding a new pair, I'm not. The eye test part is easy, you sit in a chair and say some letters but after is when the hard part comes. I actually hate the process of trying on all the different frames and it's only made worse when the sales assistant follows you around commenting on the frames you pick and which "suit you". As an introvert who is also very picky, this experience haunts me and often makes me feel pressured to pick any frame just so I can leave the shop!

To take the pressure off giving a decision there and then, the lovely people over at Glasses Direct have a handy "home trial" for all us shy/indecisive people. After browsing through all their frames, you simply enter your details and within a few days you get a lovely surprise posted through your door.

You have the whole week to pose in front of your mirror and take huge amount of selfies before needing to send back. And the best thing about the home trial is that if you're still not happy or want to try more frames, you can! 

If you're in the market for a new set of specs then I whole heartedly recommend Glasses Direct!

Make-up | Seventeen Stay Pout Lipstick in Make An Entrance

Hello!

Even with all the drama going on recently with Coronavirus, I am determined to not let it get me down and to continue staying positive! One thing I did the weekend to try and put this into action was to spring clean my make-up collection. As well as throwing out a lot of old/empty products, I did manage to find a few hidden gems which I'm sure I will write about in the near future.

Before the discontinuation of one of my favourite brands (boo you Boots!), I managed to stock up on some Seventeen goodies before they disappeared for good. One of my purchases was their Stay Pout lipstick in the shade Make An Entrance and I thought I would give it a try.

Due to how bright Make An Entrance is, I feel like I'm a bit limited to when I can actually wear it. I'm usually a nude/light pink kinda girl and normally leave bolder/darker colours for more "special" occasions but out it came and I actually enjoyed the change. The shade is very much bright red but with an undertone of orange which surprisingly went well with my complexion. It had a nice smooth formula that lasted a good couple of hours before needing a top up.

Sadly like I said above, you can't pick up the 17 brand anymore which is a shame and kind of makes this review a little redundant but it felt like a shame to not show off this gorgeous shade. A similar shade can be found by E.L.F's Orange Dream!

Netflix | What have I been watching?

Hello!

There's been a couple of times last year where I've thought "God Netflix is rubbish - there's nothing to watch anymore!" and I think of cancelling my subscription but then out of nowhere, a brand new show releases and I get sucked back in again.

the witcher

Now I'm not going to lie - the only reason I thought of making this post is because I wanted to talk about The Witcher. I am obsessed.

Last year or so, my other half suggested playing The Witcher 3 on Playstation 4 and I remember being like "nah, I'm good". Fast forward to December 20th though when we binge watched the first couple of episodes of the Netflix show and I completely 180'd and now cannot get enough of it. I have watched the series over 3 times, finished the game with DLCS and now playing again and have now also started reading the books. 

The story follows Geralt of Rivia, a contracted monster hunter in the grim place called The Continent and we follow him along some of the short stories which are featured in Andrzej Sapkowski's The Last Wish book. The series has a very medievil fantasy feel and there's definitely enough monsters and sword fighting to match. It's a great story and it's very much a show you can "get lost in".

Henry Cavill is also very lush. Yum.

peaky blinders

I was a bit late coming to the Peaky Blinders party and it wasn't because the show didn't interest me or anything, but because as I actually live near Birmingham and it's a little cringy to see it being represented on TV. It's completely normal to go up town and hear the Brummie accent but as soon as I heard it on TV, it just feels a bit too real for me!

Either way I have gotten into the show and within a week we'd got all the way through to season 4. Not only is the story really interesting but the history is really cool to see!

after life

I am a massive fan of Ricky Gervais and always loved his work; from The Office to his stand-up. He also introduced us to my hero Karl Pilkington so for that alone makes Ricky a god in my eyes. One of his recent works is After Life and it follows the story of Tony who has recently lost his wife to cancer and how he struggles to come to terms without her. It's a very dark but funny and heartwarming story which anyone can enjoy!

stranger things 3

This is another oldie but since all the spoilers and teaser trailers have come out for season 4, I thought it would fitting to mention. 

I have been a massive fan of Stranger Things since it's original release back in 2016 and every season they seem to top the last. I was super excited to hear about season 3 and of course it didn't let me down. And as much as I cried like a baby at the last episode, I am definitely excited to get back into it.
