    EYEBUYDIRECT GLASSES REVIEW

    So this is a new type of review for my blog, since it isn’t fashion or beauty related but in some ways it is. I honestly felt like a light should be shed on this absolutely amazing company because really though; who doesn’t love the idea of cheaper prescription glasses? I would like to add that I purchased these on my own and in no way am I sponsored by EYEBUYDIRECT. 

    I stumbled across these guys when I was in a frantic bind because I lost my really nice prescription glasses on a drunken night in Nashville (Don’t judge me) and was desperately in need of glasses.

    I was a bit skeptical at first because the frames I had originally chosen were only 22$ i believe, I mean let’s be honest my Micheal Kors glasses almost cost me 300$ out of pocket even with insurance so when I found a site that could take my prescription and give me a pair of stylish frames I was literally all over it.

    I searched the site for a pair I liked and while they do have more expensive frames from their RFLKT line, I opted for a pair of neutral colored frames that weren’t too expensive and that I wouldn’t mind if they were to break at all.

    A lot of people are skeptical of buying these at home but I went to my old eye place and had them give me my prescription so I could get the correct lenses. To purchase these correctly, please go to a licensed professional to check your eyesight (don’t guess on your own lol).  The lenses were included in the price and if you need bi-focals or have worse eyesight, etc you can purchase those lenses at an extra cost.

     

    My main issue was the sizing,, because at a eye doctor they measure your pupillary distance so the glasses fit you correctly. They actually give you a digital ruler that you can print out to figure this out! as it is imperative that you know the distance as well as your measurements of your old glasses. I did’t have my old glasses (cause I lost them) but I was able to find the same pair online and it gave me its measurements.

     

    Unfortunately the first time did not work like a charm and I did start off with these and ended up returning them because they were way too big for my baby face. These were a stunning nude color and soo pretty; just way too wide for me. I was really upset. Thankfully they have a great refund policy and I was able to exchange them out for another pair I adore.

    Returns are allowed within the first 14 days and they can either be refunded or exchanged out for another pair and you’ll either receive the difference or pay for the difference of the glasses. You also get a one-time replacement in the first 12 months of having them which is awesome as well. The process of getting a hold of Customer Service was so easy and I just used the form on the website to get in contact with them, in which they sent me the return label and I sent off the pair that didn’t fit me and waited on ( I would add the link for them but they are now sold out and gone from the website! Sorry guys!)

     

    Overall it took 2 weeks to get to me which was fine because I’m a patient online shopper and understand that the mail has a world of its own lol as long as the Tracking number worked, I was fine. This company also ships internationally by the way! I’m super happy to say that and while it may be expensive for European countries for Australia and Canada it’s actually quite decently priced.

     

    They are also having a sale at the moment: BOGO which ends Oct 16, 2017 with the code bogo <3

    Happy shopping loves!

    Liebster Award Tag

     

    A couple days ago I was tagged for a Liebster Award by the lovely Danielle over at Danielle Tweedles. So go check her blog out as well! For those of you who do not know what a Liebster Award is, it’s basically a get to know me tag and gets newer blogs out there. Those of you who I tag, please comment below and link back your post so that I see it, or tag me on Twitter <3

    Essentially answer the 11 questions you were tagged, tag 11 new bloggers of your choosing, and then create 11 new questions for them to answer<3

     

     

    What is one thing you cannot leave the house without? I absolutely cannot leave without my phone, I used to not rely on it so much but now that I’ve gotten more into social media, it’s so hard not to be attached to it. I honestly blame Twitter! Lol.

    What is your favorite brand of make up and why? This is such a hard question!, I have so many brands that I don’t have an absolute favorite, but if I have to choose It would be Anastasia Beverly Hills just because my Modern Renaissance palette is by far my favorite. 

    What do you want to achieve in 2017? I would like for my blog to get more readers and officially have a set schedule, and I would like to travel more often. 

    Other than blogging, what other hobbies do you have? Honestly, I watch a ton of Netflix haha I pretty much spend my time working and sleeping! I know, I know soo boring but if i said anything else I’d be lying lol

    Do you have any strange or unique phobias? I wouldn’t call them strange or unique: I HATE clowns, and spiders. 

    If you had to describe yourself using only 3 words, what would they be? Honest, Dreamer, Dancer

    Given the choice of anyone in the world, who you would you want as a dinner guest and why? Oh god, I have a slight obsession with Marie Antoinette, mainly because I believe she was an extremely misunderstood woman in history and frankly I want to ask her questions about the political climate on the eve of the French Revolution (Can’t you tell I graduated with a Bachelor’s in History?! :P) 

    Do you have a particular blogging subject that you favor?, either reading or writing? I definitely enjoy reading travel blogs but as far as writing it would be beauty blogging. 

    What is your favorite piece of clothing you own? Has to be my black blazer with a pinstripe cuff, it by far has been the best purchase I’ve made, just because it dresses up any outfit and I can go from a day outfit to a night one. 

    Do you have a favorite blogger who you aspire to? I absolutely love the Blonde Abroad, I literally love everything she posts. 

    Have you got any interesting/amazing stories or facts about yourself that you would like to share? I was born in Panama and I understand Spanish and French pretty well, I grew up with Spanish and can understand it fluently. 

     

    Here are the new 11 questions:

    1. What is your blogging goal for your blog?
    2. What made you create your blog?
    3. What is the one thing you can’t leave the house without? (I’m stealing that question)
    4. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
    5. What is your favorite book/Movie?
    6. What is your hometown like?
    7. What are your travel plans for the next year?
    8. What is your favorite memory?
    9. Given the choice of anyone in the world, who you would you want as a dinner guest and why? (I’m also using this one again, it’s such an awesome question!)
    10. Would you rather stay in and watch Netflix or Go out and have a night of dancing?
    11. How old are you and what are your goals before your next birthday?
