Should Have Gone To Specsavers...Cardiff!


I'm back in Cardiff now from a lush weekend in Devon, the rain has been crazy here but it seems to have settled today and now it's just freezing cold! 

A couple of weeks ago Specsavers in Cardiff moved (next door) to double in size and had a £1million refurbishment. I used to be so scared getting my eyes tested because of the episode on Friends when Rachel gets the puff of air in her eye and that just used to freak me out BUT luckily now that doesn't seem to happen - phew! 

I went to the launch for a look around the new store, some free wine, canapés, an eye-test and more free wine. The shop part is downstairs and the testing center is all upstairs, there were 11 testing rooms and a whole new contact lens-making section. The pre-test consisted of measuring the eye electronically and then a photo is taken of the inside of the eye. The eye test itself is the usual however no more wearing those silly goggles, It's all automatic now.

I already need to wear glasses for reading, computer work and TV but it had been about 3 years since my last test so I was getting prepared to need new glasses and I was right! Still for the same reasons just a little bit stronger than my old prescription. Luckily for me I was given a voucher to spend on the night and after spending ages trying on different frames here are the ones I chose:

osiris glasses
Osiris Tortoiseshell Glasses - c/o Specsavers.
I love the 50's big cat-eye style frame with the cute gold rim along the top.

osiris UK glasses

Also I got to see the picture of the inside of my eye - it looks like an Alien baby scan!

I wish the new store every success it really has come along way and looks amazing :)

Hope you had a great weekend!!
