Recently I was contacted by Specsavers to see if I would be interested in doing a review of their services and of course I jumped at the chance.
It's only about 6 months since I had my eyes tested for my bi-yearly eye test during which I opted for my usual glasses but instead of a second pair of regular glasses I went for sunglasses since we were heading on holidays so I am going to be showing those off too :-)
Specsavers seem to always have fantastic offers on like two for one on frames or a reduced rate eye test. Because of the two for one I was delighted to bring home these amazing tortoise shell Osiris frames and my second pair were the fantastic Karl Lagerfeld sunglasses.
With the voucher supplied by Specsavers I then picked up these amazing Max & CO (AKA Maxmara) frames. I am so thrilled because usually I don't bother with sunglasses and get two sets of frames but this year I only had one and I was really really missing being able to switch up my frames. Major thanks to Specsavers!!!
With our wedding coming up I also decided this time to give contacts another go :-0 They are like my nemesis completely.
The service they provided me on the day was fantastic. Originally I booked in for an eye exam but because I had only just had my eyes tested the let me know that I didn't actually need to go to the expense of having them tested again. I thought this was very honest of them, they could have just let me spend my money on an eye test but they didn't.
So basically they then ordered in a trial of the lenses I would need based on my prescription and said they would call when they were in and then I could come in for a teach and fitting.
About a week later I got a call to come in and have my teach and make sure that the lenses would work for me. It was fantastic! One of the girls sat with me so patiently until I managed to put the lenses in and out about 5 times on my own. This was so helpful because now I can do it with absolutely no problem. The first time I tried this on my own and nearly had an anxiety attack with frustration.
After that the optician took me in and tested my eyes with them in to make sure they sat in the eyes ok and moved as they should. All was great so off I went home in my contacts!!! After 3 days of using the trials I then ordered a months supply which works out at €59.00 for my prescription and they had them in within 2 days which was amazing!!!
While I was on my buzz after my teach I decided to go frame hunting and use my voucher. I had picked out about 3 pairs, Tommy Hilfiger, Converse and Osiris but I just wasn't sure on any of them so when one of the girls offered to help me out I was so grateful. She went above and beyond picking out styles I would never have gone for ending up with me coming home with these amazing Max & Co frames which everyone absolutely loves on me.
These are my original Osiris frames in tortoise shell and gold accents, I adore these frames, they are possibly my most favourite ever! These were part of the 2 for 1 which cost me €189. I freakin love them.
My shiny new Max & Co frames are a fab mix of black plastic, silver accent and a coral coloured metal arm. I also got anti-glare on these lenses which is something I never ever go for but decided to try it out this time and I really think I will stick with it in future. These were in the €199 section and were an option in the 2 for 1 but due to the fact I was using a voucher I wasn't eligible for a second pair :-(
And lastly my ah-ma-zing Karl Largerfeld Sunnies.... Obviously in Ireland I don't get much wear out of them but HELLOOOOO how gorgeous are they! I opted for the Polaroid lenses for the additional €80.00 and it was so worth it. Everything is soooo clear in them, These were also in the €189 section and the 2 for 1 offer so SCORE!
Thanks so much for reading
