Review: Beautiful Sunglasses from GlassesShop.com!

Hello Lovelies!

 

Today I’m bringing you a review of the amazing online eyeglasses store GlassesShop.com !


The lovely Laura from the store recently contacted me to ask if I would be interested in working with them – I wear glasses on a daily basis (I can’t actually see the top letter on an eye chart with out them!) So this was something I was very interested in; especially as I usually buy my glasses on-line as most high-street chains don’t have a great collection or are very, very expensive. Laura said to pick out any of the glasses frames or sunglasses that I liked and they would make them up with my prescription and send them out to me.

Vintage Weight & Pay @ The Hexagon

Hello Lovelies,

You know what, I’m going to get straight into this, if you know me then you know I love a good bargain. I grew up buying things from charity/thrift stores, jumble and carboot sales. A friend and I spotted the Vintage Weigh & Pay being advertised on Facebook and decided to go along – we both love a good second hand sale and this promised to be delivering at least 6 tonnes of vintage goods including berets, dresses, Dr Martens and converse. All of my favourite things. At £15 a kilo this was not a cheap venture and whilst some things were capped such as the Converse and Dr Martens this could get pretty costly pretty quick, but I really wanted some new boots and berets and the photos shown on the FB page looked great, so we figured, hey, why not!

We decided on getting the £3 early entry and turned up at 9:50am to find that there was no sign of the sale anywhere – the Hexagon was locked up and there was no information anywhere (Hey to the queue jumpers who pushed in front of us whilst we were waiting). The doors to the Hexagon opened at 10:00 am and we found there were quite a lot of people waiting downstairs already who had gone in via another entrance. Honestly, it would have been a really, REALLY good idea to have some sort of signage pointing at where the sale was taking place or which entrance we should have been taking.

Craft how to: Making a tassel

Hello Lovelies,

It’s been awhile since we’ve had a craft tutorial so today I’m going to show you how to make a tassel. These can be used for pretty much anything, scarves, bag charms even hair for plushies, and they are pretty easy to make too. To start with you’ll need some wool and a pair of scissors. You might want something to make a note of how many wraps you do as well.

yume-twins-box-contents
So let’s kick of 2017 with something kawaii! Yume Twins is a monthly cute themed subscription box all the way from Japan which contains 5 high quality items. I believe they have recently re-done the boxes to contain less things but higher quality items. All the contents of the box are premium character goods and are licensed. For $29.99 (or less depending on which plan you sign up too) a month you will received a mixture from plushies, lifestyle, apparel & accessories, stationeries or knickknacks and toys. The boxes are free shipping worldwide. My youngest sister bought me a Yume Twin’s monthly subscription box as a gift, which arrived last weekend which is crazy fast from Japan considering when they shipped with all the holidays in between!

If you haven’t received your box yet and don’t want spoilers, don’t hit the cut below!
