New Chanel Specs

Sunday, 26 July 2015


New glasses are always a reason to get excited, and when they're also Chanel that's even more cause for celebration.

Having been solidly etched into my late 20s, my eyesight has started to get a little worse. I blame age and years of working in front of a computer screen.
Either way, glasses have started to become a staple part of my working life - and a driving essential.

Wearing glasses is pretty darn good. It's just another way to add fun accessories to my wardrobe. I'm no one look pony, I like to have a few pairs to play around with. Well, why ever not? You wouldn't wear the same shoes everyday would you?

From rimless to neon yellow frames, I love to have a mix to match my mood and outfit.

My latest addition to my collection is this rather lovely pair of Chanel glasses from Pret A Voir which is one of the best places to buy designer glasses online. 

They have an incredible collection of shades and specs - for him and her. From Chanel to Tom Ford, if it's worth having they have it.

What I also like about this online glasses shop is the price. You can often find some great frames (and lenses too) for a lot better value than you would on the high street.

I bought these fab Chanel frames (Style: 3315 1520 Beige) with prescription lenses for under £200! What is also great is the speed at which they were delivered. I had them on my desk at work within 48 hours of ordering - result. I'd highly recommend shopping there to anyone.

I love these frames as they are chunky and big, but nude and not face-engulfing. The perfect balance of on trend elegance. 





My Year on Instagram 2014

Thursday, 1 January 2015

Happy New Year!

It's now officially 2015 - which is crazy! Last year seemed to fly by. It feels like it was only yesterday we were welcoming in 2014, and now it's a distant memory.

In the last 12 months I've got a new job, made a new mua website, Layla turned 3, I turned 28, I stayed in a castle, I got burnt in St Ives, we got a new kitchen, and a hell of a lot more!
 Seriously, so much happened.

So, in true blogger style, I thought the best way to share with you my highlights of 2014 would be in images. I've picked three images for each month of the year.

So here you go, my year on Instagram 2014, enojoy...
