 Hello!

I've been wearing glasses since I first started school, I remember the first style I picked out were these completely circular, multi-coloured rainbow glasses - looking back at these now, I do wonder why my parents even let me been seen in them, but I was insistent that those were the frames for me. As I got older, I learnt the hard way that glasses weren't considered 'cool' and ended up buying contact lenses as soon as I was old enough to be allowed them. Now at nearly 21, I completely accept that I'm never going to have perfect eyesight and it doesn't even bother me, in fact the prospect of purchasing new glasses has become something I get excited about. So you can imagine my curiosity when I was introduced to GlassesShop.com

(*Please note: I was contacted by the company and received a complimentary pair of glasses in exchange for an honest review, all the opinions are my own.

Essentially a warehouse of affordable frames and prescription sunglasses, there's a whole host of cheap glasses to choose from. I didn't find it hard to find a style I liked, in fact I found it hard narrowing it down to just one pair! In the end I chose the 'Winchester' frames in the colour Zebra. These particular ones jumped out at me because of their quirky design, I'm usually very reserved when I choose my glasses, opting for more traditional tortoise shell patterns or just plain black (this could be due to the high levels of regret I still experience from my childhood rainbow frames haha!) but I decided to be spontaneous and ordered them regardless, and I am so glad I did.

A few action shots of my frames in use:

The frames are large and really open up my eyes, which is perfect for me as I've had frames in the past that haven't been properly in proportion with my features and made me look pretty tired. Another bonus is the gorgeous zebra detailing which is more a lot more subtle than I imagined it to be, meaning I can definitely wear them at work. I do wonder why they called the design zebra though, from where I'm sitting they definitely look like more of a giraffe or cow print - not that it matters!

They arrived quicker than I anticipated, perfectly packaged in a protective, plastic case with a handy cleaning cloth - the fact that GlassesShop send out these with their glasses is a complete lifesaver for me, I'm forever just chucking my frames straight into my handbag then wondering why they're completely scratched and marked! I actually completely crushed my last pair at the bottom of my bag so I'm definitely going to try and take better care of these.

I was even lucky enough to receive a discount voucher in the box for money off my next pair of frames from them, which is something I'll definitely be doing because I can't get over the quality of these. The only negatives I can find with these glasses are that due to their size, they do tend to slip down my nose, however this is something I can easily fix at my local optometrist so I'm not too worried. Despite the fact they slide a little, the frames are actually surprisingly light, which is a positive because no one wants to wear heavy face furniture for the whole day!

I'm really happy with my choice, I did have very low expectations for purchasing prescription glasses online, but I've been pleasantly surprised by how easy it is and I'll definitely think twice before picking up a new pair of glasses on the highstreet. No doubt this is the beginning of my latest accessory obsession now that I've found a way to buy glasses on the cheap.

So I hope you liked my choice of frames, I'd love to know what you think! And if you're particularly keen for a new pair for yourself or you fancy some sunnies for your holiday, I have a code for you to use at the checkout for a huge 50% off the total price of your purchase: GSHOT50
