Almost two months ago I decided to start volleyball again. When I was younger and still living in Italy, volleyball was my true passion, but for a series of reasons, I had to quit.
Since I moved here in UK and started working, I was looking for something to do in my spare time so OBVIOUSLY I decided to start volleyball again.
When I used to play volleyball years ago, I wore my prescription glasses sometimes and luckily I never had any sort of problem but I knew that it wasn't safe at all.
This time I wanted to be wiser and more careful so I opted to try out contact lenses. Why not?
I purchased my lenses via Get Lenses. The delivery was really quick and they even included a small Haribo pack within my parcel. Yes, you read correctly: Haribo sweets for free! I will DEFINITELY keep purchasing my  lenses from them! lol
I decided to buy the monthly contact lenses Biomedics 55 Evolution because of the low price and the easy daily care. Now the only thing that I needed was a solution to clean/sterilize my lenses.
I opted for Opti-Free Replenish Contact Lenses Solution on Amazon, a real bargain!

My first experience trying to actually wear the contact lenses wasn't that bad if I have to be honest! It took me 25ish minutes for both eyes and I was really pleased with the results!
Finally I didn't need to squint to read any type of writing and my eye makeup was actually noticed for once! 
The only down side was that I managed to lose one of the lenses without even realising it. lol
All in all my experience with contact lenses is absolutely positive! Never experienced infections, dry eyes nor irritation *touch wood*. Now that I'm more experienced, I'm even using them in my spare time. I really don't know why I didn't try them earlier! *shacking my head*

What about you? Have you ever wore contact lenses? If yes, do you have a funny story about it?
Let me know guys! I'm curious!!!

  6. I prefer lenses but last six month I went for glasses again because I had a feeling my eyes were becoming really tired after wearing lenses and I decided I needed a break from it. Funny story- the first time I got my lenses, a nurse helped me get them inside and after that, I had to try it myself. So I immediately manage to loose one of them (I swung my arm and woops- it flew out of my hand) and I had two nurses look for it, including me :D

    1. I lost a lens too!! lol I'm so clumsy sometimes!

  7. I tried them on months ago and it took me almost 2 hours to just put them on in my eyes! I was all sweaty and it irritates me a lot until i managed to put the the right one on and then the left.

    1. I had a similar experience especially at the beginning..luckily now it takes me 5 seconds to wear contacts! :)

  8. I've always loved wearing contact lenses! I think I started wearing then when I was 16?.. The colour grey were the crzeeeee back then lol! As an oriental, I quickly jumped on the bandwagon of wearing circle lenses, a thicker ring to make your eyes appear larger! I haven't worn contacts since motherhood is taking a toll on my life lol but I have been considering it :) thanks for this post beautiful!


    1. No problem, Shanna! Thanks for your experience xx

  9. I love your hair :)
