At the beginning of the year, I was thrilled to have won a £125 Specsavers voucher from their Twitter page. I was planning on spending it on contact lenses, but after a two week trial, I really didn't get along with them! I could get them in my eye okay, but I just couldn't get them back out?! And the longer it took getting them out, the more frustrated I got, and more sensitive my eyes got, and they were watering so much. So contacts are definately not for me!
I only wear glasses when driving and watching TV, as my vison isn't that bad. But I don't mind wearing glasses, I actually have a bit of a thing for them on the opposite sex! I think glasses can be pretty stylish, and just an additional fashion accessory. There are so many styles out there, and I think that recently there has been a bit of a trend for specs.
I'm not really a fan of these trendy thick-rimmed glasses, as I feel they make my face look chubby! But I do love semi-rimless frames, and sleek designs. My previous glasses were by Morgan and I love them. They're a dark pink with thin rectangle frames. I wanted another similar pair because I felt comfortable in that style, and I'm picky when it comes to chosing ones that suit me.
I rummaged the Specsavers glasses racks, awkwardly picking up glasses, trying them on, then putting them back! I actually went back to the first pair that I tried on, which was this pair by Missoni. They are a black pair of semi-rimless frames, with a pretty out pattern along the sides, and small red logo. They were £125, so I managed to bag them without paying any extra by using my voucher prize.
What do you think of contact lenses and glasses? Do you wear them? Whats your favourite style?
