New Year and a New Look with Specsavers
If you have read my New Years resolutions you will know that I need to spend more time on me. Go to the gym and buy some new clothes. I have worn glasses for as long as I can remember, I have contact lenses but I feel much more comfortable in glasses. I often chose Specsavers to purchase glasses as they are local to me and offer some great 2 for 1 offers, What I am not good at doing is choosing something different. I have had the same style of glasses for years. So when Specsavers asked if I would like to review a pair of their Aurora glasses, I thought it would be a good chance to try something out of my comfort zone.
Their Aurora range is designed by fashion icon Twiggy and the latest frames in the collection contain crystals. Even better is that they come in a 2 for £125 offer.
I have to say the staff at my local store were excellent. I quickly shortlisted my frames to the Aurora Sapphire and Aurora Amethyst. They were subtly different and after a lot of umming and arrhhing and some pictures taken on an ipad to compare I finally chose the Aurora Amethyst. I paid slightly extra to get an anti-glare coasting on my lenses and the glasses were ready in a few days.
I am really pleased with them and I like the fact that I now have 2 pairs of glasses to choose from. It is silly we don't think twice about having a wardrobe full of clothes, but we don't often think about having different glasses depending on what we are wearing.
The lady that helped me choose the glasses was really helpful in saying that these go best with darker outfits and I think she is right. Whilst the frames are pretty dark, the fact that they are blue makes them slightly less harsh and I really like the crystals on the arms. This picture shows how a change in glasses can really change your look and I will now start wearing different glasses with different outfits.
