My conversations with my cousin during the Christmas Holidays in 2011 about his own Laser Eye Surgery had planted the seed for me to start looking into the options for Laser Eye Surgery finally for myself.
It’s in my basic nature to do research…
So after returning from our holidays, I set about looking into it.
I wanted to know all the in’s and outs of Laser Eye Surgery including things like: Read more
I had been fascinated by Laser Eye Surgery, but this was ‘before’ I even knew I needed glasses!
I was 13, living in Nelson and visiting my friend who’s family had been house sitting for friends of theirs. The house they were ‘sitting’ was gorgeous (which I was quite fascinated with on its own) and then my friend told me the reason they were house sitting was because the couple that owned the house had flown to Auckland to BOTH get Laser Eye Surgery to correct their vision done.
I remember thinking that was the ‘coolest’ thing I had ever heard of and how fascinating it was that they could potentially get brand new super eyes by zapping them with lasers!!
She also told us that it cost them $2000 per eye – whooooah. At age 13 I knew $4000 per person was a lot of money, but still ‘how cool’.
I then promptly forgot about the conversation and went about my 13 year old life.
Cut scene…to 1 year latter at age 14.
I was never a complete ‘back row lurker’ at School, but liked to sit ‘fairly’ near the back of the class. It meant I could still get away with a small amount of talking & note passing and teen girl antics, but without being grouped with the ‘nearly always in trouble’ back row.
I was in 4th Form typing class when I first realised my eyes were not bionic and were potentially failing me. It seemed suddenly I could no longer look up from my typewriter to where our work was on the whiteboard and see as clearly. It was fuzzier than normal…hmmmm.
But I ignored it for a while (as we all do) but then found myself needed to move forward a row next time we came to class (shock horror!!).
Then another row forward…damn…I was really not keen on that. “Gosh, maybe I needed glasses!” But surely not, none of my brothers or my parents had glasses?
I talked to my Mom about it and in no time she had me down at the local optometrist in Nelson having an eye test.
Result = YES I needed glasses!! Read more
L’Oreal Paris – Elvive Smooth-Intense Anti Frizz Serum
A few months ago I was delighted to discover Elvive Smooth-Intense Anti Frizz Serum on the supermarket shelf.
I had been looking for a new ‘oil/serum’ type product to use on my hair and thought I would give this new product a go.
It is “hands down” one of the best smoothing products I have ever used and I am delighted with how it makes me hair feel and look.
I’m a busy woman juggling the demands of being a working professional and a Mom. This is where Elvive Smooth-Intense Anti Frizz Serum works so well for me as I literally jump out of the shower, comb my hair, pump some serum into my palms and rake it through my hair.
It still feels and looks sensational whether I have time to dry/style my hair or if I’m leaving the house in a rush with it still wet! Read more
