Glam Corner. This and That.

A photo of a normal saline ampoule..... 

Just where is she going to take this post, you might be asking yourselves?  Not really sure myself but it's bound to be a journey that takes us far and wide and round and round.

Problems of the first world don't come more worthy of an Instagram post than those involving contact lenses and makeup.  Have you ever driven to work and unlocked the door to your office only to realize that it wasn't hayfever or the glare of the sun irritating your eyes but rather a few streaks of mascara and a  flick of eyeliner instead?  If you haven't, allow me to let you live it second hand.  It's equal parts annoying, uncomfortable and headache-inducing.  

It also pays to believe it when Benefit and Stila make those seemingly extravagant claims about the number of hours their products stay on.  Because they cling just as tightly to contact lenses as they do to human skin.  It took a fair bit of rubbing and most of that normal saline to return my left contact lens to its pristine state.

Have I reached a stage in life then where it's contacts or eye makeup but not both at the same time?  How will I even put my make up on without contacts?

With these snazzy makeup glasses, perhaps?

Well just call me Ms Green Thumbs.  These are my radish seedlings just 3 days after I planted them.  I'm doing everything I can to keep this batch of seedlings well watered and sunned because I want to be able to have planters full of homegrown produce to lovingly tend to (and admire) over the Christmas break.  Christmas is when I hit peak homebody and this year I plan to add avid home gardener to my list of homely hobbies.

There were tears (mine) on Tuesday.  

With his new school tie (which neither of us can tie) in one hand and firm handshake with the other, Master SSG crossed the road to the brave new world of junior prep.

This was me all smiles and frocked up before the graduation.   Love the dress?

Why thank you.  And I'll thank Glam Corner on your behalf.  The dress was by Husk FYI, a label I never got around to trying before taking the plunge on Glam Corner.

Glam Corner are wonderful to deal with.  The website is very user-friendly with various ways to search for your outfit.  Besides the one item hire option, you can also hire a range of pieces for an extended period using the Premium option.

I received updates along the way stating when my dress was being dispatched as well as reminders for when and how to return it.  Each dress I ordered arrived freshly dry cleaned and beautifully wrapped in tissue.

Unfortunately, the first dress I hired didn't look as good on me as it did the model.  Customer service helped me out quickly, all I had to do was send the dress back with the tags still attached ASAP.  There is a tab on your Glam Corner account that enables you to register for a refund if you find yourself in a similar situation.

An express post satchel is included in the carton your outfit arrives in and all you have to do is place your dress in the satchel and post it back in the yellow letterbox.

Here's a visual.

Bottom line?  Highly recommended.  I like that Glam Corner stocks a wide range of Australian labels that I've admired from afar.  Up until now I couldn't make the maths work on buying a $500+ dress that I knew I'd only wear once.  GC allows you to access those show pony pieces for a reasonable price, look fabulous for your event before returning your outfit so that someone else can have their moment.  Kinder on your wallet, kinder on the planet.  #winwin

Before I go, some serious news if you're in NSW.  Mobile phone detection cameras go live this weekend.  Apparently, pre-testing of the cameras on our roads detected $35 million worth of illegal activity!!  I'm one of the guilty ones and I know I have to change.  Not just because of the fines but also for the safety of everyone I share the roads with.  Which is why I've finally made peace with those previously annoying gaps between the seats and the middle console in my car.  I'm going to hide my phone down one gap.  However, I will attach it to my the charging cord in my car so I will be able to fish it out of the gap after I've safely parked my car.

Will you have to change the way you use your phone when you drive?

Do you hire outfits for special occasions?

  1. I most definitely will not have to change how I use my phone. If I'm in the car it is in my handbag and it stays there no matter how much it beeps or rings. Car time is for driving and singing along to the music, it is a rare moment of me time where I do not let anyone or anything interrupt. :) I just wish everyone else did the same.

    I've seen other people cross entirely to the wrong side of the road while on their phone. Not good. I think this is actually a much more serious issue than the government does and for me, it would be instant loss of phone and licence plus the car goes into impound for 30 days. That is the only way people will learn IMO. I do not want to be killed by a phone user. :(

    I couldn't tell about the dress until I went to the website for a full view, yes it is lovely. :)
