Sunday 22 March 2015


Last Friday was a grey, rainy day. I had the day off and we did our usual routine: I blogged in the morning while Rich made some phone calls; then we went outside, Rich feeding the animals and I mucking out the horse stalls and paddocks. We had lunch, and then ran some errands together. All normal, boring, everyday stuff. On the way home we stopped by the mailbox, where I found something unexpected: a package from ClearlyContacts. What the...? I hadn't ordered anything. My first thought was that it wasn't for me. The mail-lady must have put the package into the wrong slot - it happened before. However, my name was on it. Hmm, strange.

As soon as we arrived home I opened it, still convinced that someone had messed up.
What happened next I re-enacted (badly, I'm no actress) for you:

Clearly Contacts package
"What could be in here? I have no idea."
Clearly Contacts
"Let's see... looks like glasses. But I didn't order any!"
Handwritten card from Clearly Contacts
"Wait, there is a card. It's handwritten! Omg, it's a gift!! A thank-you from Clearly Contacts for wearing their glasses occasionally in my outfit posts."  
Clearly Contacts glasses
"That's amazing!"

 "Look at them!"

"I love them! Thanks so much, Clearly Contacts!

It was a complete and utter surprise to me and made my weekend. 
While I always list in outfit posts where I bought my clothes, shoes and accessories, I have never contacted anyone to let them know that or asked for a freebie. Everything I buy and wear I do because I like it. I have been a Clearly Contacts customer for many years, because I love their products and the impeccable service; plus as you may know, I'm a huge fan of online shopping because it's so darn convenient. 

My favourite part (apart from a fabulous pair of new glasses)? The handwritten card. What a sweet and special touch! 

Clearly Contacts, you rock! Thank you so much for this wonderful surprise!
