I think it’s safe to say I’m in full on festive mode now. Bring on the celebrations, deck those halls, and pass me the mulled wine. Life is far too short and if this year has taught me anything it’s to make each day count, and I promise to do just that. This time of year is my favourite so I’m going to make sure I enjoy and embrace every little moment of it; the sherry, the long lists, and frozen fingertips!
At the weekend we celebrated the OH’s birthday with a new haircut (for him), craft beers, walks with Polly, and a spot of local shopping. We saw reindeer at our local Christmas Light Switch On event which was lovely, but my favourite part of the weekend was simply walking through the crisp leaves, picking up the weekend papers and the prospect of a warm pub after the OH kindly took some photos of my new Glasses Direct glasses. He’s a good egg (I secretly think he likes playing photographer).
My friends over at Glasses Direct sent me the London Retro Bond Glasses. All of my frames and lenses are from Glasses Direct so I knew what to expect in terms of ordering glasses online. If you are new to wearing glasses, new to buying them online or are just looking for feedback from your friends and family then they offer a free home trial where you order a selection of design-led frames to try on at home before purchasing.
As for my frames, I prefer the subtle retro styles so I chose the Bond pair in Forest, a great everyday pair of glasses and only £89 too. As always they fit perfectly and the prescription I sent was checked with my optician (as I’m due for a checkup soon) so I know eye health is a priority to Glasses Direct; great service all round.
Fancy a pair of your own?
