New Shades! | Glasses Direct


For the past couple of weeks, I've been suffering from really painful headaches and after making a few changes to try and work out why I finally realised it was probably down to my glasses and I needed to book an eye test.

Now I'm normally quite regular with my eye tests and to be quite honest, I still have a few more months left until my next one is due but if you do suffer from any symptoms then you should definitely not wait and get it checked out!

After getting my eyes tested and finding out that my eyesight has slightly deteriorated and that I would be needing new glasses, the first place that came to mind was Glasses Direct!

I have written a review post about Glasses Direct about a year ago and since I had such a good experience, I knew I'd definitely have to go back to them. Not only do Glasses Direct have a great range of frames and some of the best deals I've seen, but they also provide frames to be trialled in the comfort of your own home!

After about 2 hours of looking through all the frames, I found the 4 that I wanted to home trial and in the post they went. Within the next 2 days, they arrived and I instantly fell in love with them all. Unfortunately, I couldn't buy them all but because they had a buy one get one free offer on at the time, I did narrow it down to two frames!

The whole process of picking my lenses and entering my prescription was really easy and I felt confident at the end that I knew exactly what I was getting. And even if I had messed up GD have an amazing free returns policy. Bonus!

Now down to the frames! My last couple of glasses have been black and to be quite honest, boring. This time I wanted colour and pattern but I eventually went with two quite similar Cat Eye tortoiseshell glasses. My favourite out of the two is definitely the Scout Millie Glasses as they're a subtle tortoiseshell effect on the outside but has a gorgeous gold glitter effect on the inside! I know no-one sees that part but GLITTER! The second pair is my sexy but classy frames a.k.a the London Retro Chelsea glasses. I really enjoyed the burgundy into tortoiseshell effect and I will definitely get a lot of use out of them in the Winter/Autumn months as all I ever wear is burgundy coloured clothes. (Yes I colour co-ordinate my glasses).

Overall the two glasses cost was just over £80 and that was including the extra protection lenses so all in all, not too bad! They came super quick and I really can't fault Glasses Direct for anything. If you're looking for new glasses then I'd definitely recommend you checking out their website!
