My warm dry feet and wellies that fit..

I have wide feet and they get wider each day thanks to my wonderful illness which causes them to swell. To be honest this sucks, gone are the days when I could wear any shoes I wanted. Gone are my beloved Dr Martens, I am limited by what I can wear.

For the last couple of years I have been on the search for a pair of wellies. This may sound strange but as a family  of campers a good pair of wellingtons are a must. They are perfect for muddy camp fields and for slipping on quickly as you potter over in the early hours to the loos for a wee.

Anyway for the last few years I have had to just admire my families warm dry feet as I could not find wellies to fit.

But no more woo hoo thanks to the wonderful company Jileon I now am the proud owner of these babies.



I absolutely loved them, only last week I got to test drive them when on weekend on the Gower the heavens opened and the beautiful green field turned into lovely muddy mud.

These babies kept my feet warm and dry and guess what because Jileon make wellies for the wider feet they fit like a dream.

I am beyond happy.

I already have my eyes on my next pair.


I am so happy, I have now joined the warm dry feet club and if like me you have been on a search for gorgeous wide fitting wellies search no more, check out Jileon they also offer normal widths for women, men and children too.



* I was gifted these wellies for the purpose of this review but all opinions are my own. 

I can see ya !!!

I’m a full time wearer of spectacles and while I am grateful for my sight I get so fed up of having to wear the same pair day in and day out. The price of glasses makes it impossible to allow me any real choice.

Well it used to!

A few months back I won a competition on twitter for a pair of spectacles from an online company called Specspost.

Now I had heard of online suppliers but with the prices the company was asking I really didn’t expect quality. Following the belief ” you get what you pay for”. 

But hey I had won the pair so nothing to lose. Right!!

Well a few days after I emailed them my prescription my prize pair came through the post.

To be honest I was really shocked at the quality of the specs.

They were strong, comfortable and super stylish and have now become one of my favourite pairs.

Well this was the start of my relationship with Specspost. I have now ordered two more pairs of specs to add to my collection.

So imagine my joy when I had an email telling me about the new range of sunglasses the site now had.

I am one of those people that suffer a lot with migraines so sunglasses are a must but obviously being as blind as bat as well the sunglasses obviously need to be prescription as well. Again this brings cost into the equation, money sucks right. 

Though again Specspost have come to my rescue with their fantastic and fashionable range of sunglasses for all tastes with their usual reasonable prices.

Now I know many are worried about buying something so personal as spectacles online. I mean we have to check that they would suit us and feel comfortable.

This is where I really think Specspost are awesome you choose a few pairs online, pay a deposit and get to trial the glasses at home. You then try them out, choose your pair or in my case pairs, post them back, pay your balance and then a few days later your specs are posted back out to you. It is really that simple.

Specspost take all the hassle away from you.

I personally loved the home trial it gave me a chance to really check if the glasses suited me. I got to ask opinions of my family as well as trying out different hairstyles wearing them. This is something I would never consider doing in a shop.


I highly recommend Specspost they offer quality stylish glasses along with fantastic supportive customer service.

The glasses range from as little as £10. They also offer designer frames for really reasonable prices.

I have only one problem with Specspost I now have a slight glasses addiction forming but hey with their amazing prices it’s not that bad.

Seriously don’t just take my word for it order a few pairs to try at home.

I had so much fun choosing my new sunglasses.
