Some of you may know that I have the worst eyesight and need to wear glasses the majority of the time. It wasn’t until I started driving 4 years ago when I started wearing them as I didn’t have a choice, and it was always so hard to find frames that actually looked nice! I used to hate going to the opticians, I would go to look at the glasses and there would be a sales assistant handing me lots of different pairs to try on! I disliked the whole experience and the fact that I didn’t like wearing my glasses made it worse!

If you are a glasses wearer like me you will know that they are either super expensive, or they’re not very nice! Recently I discovered SpecsPost, I noticed they had some really lovely frames and wide range to choose from. When I looked at the prices I was shocked at how affordable they were, gone are the days of spending over £100 for glasses! If you follow me on Twitter you will know that I tried out their home trial* in which they send you up to three pairs of glasses that you would like to try out, I was actually sent four and the photos of them are above. They take payment for 50% of the total value of the glasses as a deposit, then when you receive the package you just send back the glasses within seven days and complete the order form for the ones you would like. Your glasses are then made up and sent to you within 10 working days, they refund the difference.
It took me a long time to decide what one I wanted as my favourites were the first two pairs. Finally I decided on the Fearne* frames and really love them! I posted photos on Twitter to ask if everyone could help me decide and this was the most popular option. The colour is tortoiseshell which I thought was better than the black as it seemed a bit harsh against my blonde hair. They’re a lot more stylish than my last pair and feel much happier about wearing them! I never liked wearing my glasses before, in fact you’ll find barely any photos of me with them on, but these I absolutely love to wear!
What do you all think? I loved the fact that I could take my time choosing which was my favourite pair from the comfort of my own home, no more stressing about going to the opticians!
