Feeling Specksy

Last week, I made a long overdue visit to my local Specsavers to get an eye test and pick up some new glasses. I'm ashamed to say I haven't worn glasses for years. When my last pair broke, I didn't bother replacing them. My eyesight isn't very bad but I was finding looking at telly and at things in the distance, I was straining to focus on anything. I hate eye tests especially when they puff air in your eyes but luckily I passed with pretty near flying colours. Apparently my eyes are very healthy, something I was delighted to hear.

Glasses have become incredibly stylish over the last few years and I picked up two very gorgeous pairs of glasses. The designers I choose were John Rocha and FCUK.



I really love them and can't wait to get wearing them.

What do you think of my picks?

Boots Beauty Buys

On Tuesday last week, while popping into Tesco to stock up on fruit and veg, I passed by Boots. I normally walk right passed, because Boots is a weakness to me. I could easily go in for a deodorant or other necessities and come out with lots more. They have 3 for 2 on at the moment and I felt it would be incredibly rude of me not to take advantage.

I was very good and resisted the desire to buy lots, instead I kept to the three things I've needed for a while now:
  • Pressed Powder - something I haven't used in years, normally opting for loose but I'm getting a bit tired of the loose powder going everywhere. I swatches a couple of ones but the one I most liked was Seventeen Stay Time Pressed Powder in Medium. I did try a paler shade but it was very pale for me. 

  • Concealer - Something I kind of forget about using but really should. I tend to bring my foundation up to underneath the eye which is not the recommended thing. I've read rave reviews about the Collection Lasting Perfection so picked it up in Fair to give it a try. 

  • Eyeliner - I love pen eyeliners and was completely gutted last week to discover my beloved Clarins 3 Dot Eyeliner had dried out. Completely my own fault for not putting the lid back on properly but still a little bit of me wept.  The hunt was on for another pen eyeliner and this Collection Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip one screamed take me! I loooove the tip on this and the pigmentation.

All three came to just under thirteen euro.

I can't wait to get testing these lovelies properly. Have you tried any of them?
