Blogging with a new pair of specs!

I work at a computer all day long so by the evening the contacts have to be taken out and the glasses come into play. The joys of the digital era of journalism and marketing?

I don’t know if any other fellow specs wearers have noticed but glasses are so expensive these days. Whenever I have popped into Specsavers they are at least ninety nine pounds and this is advertised as a ‘special offer‘. With this in mind I am very grateful to have been sent a pair of prescriptive glasses from GlassesNow to review; so thank you to the lovely team there! They obviously know how hard I work with all my blogging! On a serious note, I can definitely say these have come at a good time.

So what did I make of the glasses?

Karen Millen glasses review

This stylish metallic brown frame is designed by Karen Millen and sits comfortably and lightly on my nose. I mention this first of all as I have had many difficulties with the bridge of frames rubbing and causing irritation and markings. This is probably why I wear my contact lenses 5 days out of 7.

For £69.90 these offer good value for money and adding your prescriptive lenses is completely free. I always tend to scrutinise websites however I like how the product descriptions provide the exact measurements and design aspects of the glasses you select. This means you can do a quick check to make sure they fit before committing to ordering online. If your like me you will simply hold a measuring tape up to your face in the mirror and um and arh…

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of GlassesNow is that all orders placed before 4pm for UK delivery and 3pm for mainland Europe delivery have a next day guarantee. This efficient customer service is good news for us workers. Rather than having to take a morning off work to pick up your glasses and pop back the next day for collection, you can simply order online and expect to receive them the following day. Easy eh?

I love the subtlety of these and will be wearing them on a regular basis. What do you think?

I would like to say a big thanks to GlassesNow who have helped taking the expense out of a new pair of glasses. And to the followers of my blog; you can all picture me with my new specs on, ready and raring to bring you plenty more content in 2014. Hold on tight.
