Just after Christmas last year I found out that I needed Glasses. I knew for a long time that something wasn't quite right as my vision had been slowly deteriorating and I would get headaches everyday after college. I wasn't surprised that I need glasses but I really wasn't sure I wanted them. 

For a few months I battled with wearing my new glasses, I liked them but I didn't love them and I was quite self-conscious about wearing them. Maybe it was because I wasn't used to wearing glasses or maybe it was because I couldn't really afford to spend the money on some posh ones but I wasn't too happy either way. 

Fast forward to this Christmas, I'd finally got used to wearing glasses but the pretty standard pair I was wearing were getting a bit boring so when The Glasses Shop got in touch about reviewing a pair from them I jumped at the chance*. I'd been thinking about getting some new eyeglasses for a little while and after setting my heart on a gorgeous pair of pink beauties from their website I knew I had to have them.

I was offered the chance to try out some prescription sunglasses from them and I really considered this as it would help me out a lot in the summer. I mostly need my glasses for concentrating on reading and other things so I thought having prescription sunglasses for my holidays would be fab, however I really had fallen in love with the pink glasses by now so I bit the bullet and ordered them.

I've never ordered glasses online before, I'd always just gone to Specsavers however as I already had my prescription and pupillary distance it was pretty easy to order them. They took a little while to arrive but once they were here they were packaged really well and came with a case and cleaning cloth. 

I've been wearing them for a couple of months now and they are by far my favourite pair to wear. Anyone who knows me will know just how much I love pink so these babies go with pretty much everything I wear.

  1. These are amazing! They suit you so well and they're just so pretty. I always get my glasses from Perfect Glasses now, I got two pairs of prescription sunglasses for about £65 with postage which is really good! I've had glasses since I was about 15/16 for distance so it's taken me ages to finally get sunglasses but they'll be perfect for holidays! Xx
