Monday, 12 June 2017 Review


Hello Everyone,

Today I'm going to be talking to you a little about glasses, as many of you know, I am shortsighted and thus I wear glasses everyday (or I walk into walls and into canals and stuff).
Since I wear glasses daily, I like to have a couple of different pairs to wear to change up my look now and then.

I was offered the chance to try out a pair of eyeglasses of my choice from GlassesShop and I think it's fair to say that I jumped at the chance. Prior to this, I had only had one pair of glasses in rotation (a black rimmed pair) and so I was really excited to add some new glasses frames into my wardrobe.

As GlassesShop are entirely online, I had to order blind (guffaw guffaw) as I wasn't able to try any frames on to see if they suited me, I didn't let that put me off though and eagerly sent through my prescription details. I've ordered glasses online before (and paid for them myself) and so I noticed an immediate difference with GlassesShop, they wanted to know my PD, which I'd never even heard of prior to this order and I had to call up my opticians to ask for it. Turns out your PD is the distance in millimeters between your pupils and is used to:

"align the optical center of the lens with the center of your eye in order to avoid unnecessary eye strain and make your eyeglasses fit you perfectly" 
From my email conversation with GlassesShop.

I was really interested in this as I've never been asked for it before but when I rang specsavers (and had the awkward conversation that yes, they had just given me a free eye test and yes I was actually obtaining my glasses elsewhere *gulp*) it turned out I did have a PD and it was legit... Anyone else been asked for this?

All patter aside, the glasses arrived from china within two weeks, I tried them on to see if I could see (I'm really short sighted so I knew I'd be able to tell immediately if my prescription wasn't in the lense) and I could see perfectly.

I'm really happy with the frames I chose, the fit is great and they feel like the same sort of quality I normally pay upwards of £60 from on the British high street, however, these frames would set you back only $19.95 (the frames are called Novia Cat Eye by the way, should you be interested).

GlassesShop also offer a range of Prescription Sunglasses too, which is another element of the website that I love.

Overall, I'm really pleased with these glasses and I'm already browsing their website for a potential second pair from them, if you are interested in giving GlassesShop a try, I have a 50% off code for you which is GSHOT50 (and no, this isn't an affiliate code, I get no benefits if you shop here so don't be thinking I'm side eyeing some profit here).

Let me know what you think and let me know if you've used GlassesShop yourself.

Bye for now,

Rosy xx

  16. I love the look of these, they're quite qwirky. I used to work in an opticians years ago and we were never allowed to give out PD measurments (as it's not part of a prescription and it prevents people buying online instead.) so it's good you was able to get it! What a bargain for these glasses too! x

  26. Giiiirl you have a face that wears frames SO well - love this pair! I don't wear glasses, but I think should I need to in future, I'd absolutely be enjoying the opportunity to buy tons of gorgeous frames everywhere ;)

  27. These really suit you, I think I need glasses but really don't suit them, my daughter wears them and I've never thought of ordering online until I was recently contacted regarding trying some glasses, I might give it a go and give her prescription and she can try them out, great post lovely xxxx

  45. Omg I absolutely LOVE your glasses on you!! They're so unique and feminine. Super cute!



  46. Don’t you just love it when a random online store turns out to be great?! Especially with ordering something like glasses. I don’t wear prescription glasses myself but they’d probably something I’d want to go into a shop & buy myself. I think though, that a lot of the bigger stores like Specsavers, etc, are overpriced. The price difference here is really big! But I guess those bigger stores do sell brands. Anyway, they look really good on you!

  61. Those glasses makes your eyes look popping!, I could feel the 80's funky feel to it because of the print and style, As a person who wears glasses myself, it is difficult for me to shop online for prescription glasses but the company seem very thorough <3
