Should have gone to, oh wait…
Previously I was featured as Specsavers People’s Choice Wearer of the Year back in 2013 and recently fancied a bit of a makeover. For the last few years, I’ve had my contacts from there as their service is really reliable. Though I dabbled in buying contacts online, I thought I’d best not mess around with something so important as eyesight and headed back to the experts at Specsavers Opticians.
The great thing about glasses is there’s always one to suit your face and I love the fact that a brand new pair of glasses can give you an instant makeover and transformation. It’s like a really good haircut, as glasses can help flatter the shape of your face and highlight your eyes.
I visited their store in intu Eldon Square and started with that vital eye check up. Seriously go get yours checked if you haven’t been for a while, it’s super important!
After my test, the lovely Amy helped me with deciding the right type of frame for me. As she sees and helps so many of their customers, it was great to be able to have proper advice in terms of glasses styling. It’s a secret world of glasses stylists!
We tried on loads of pairs and I appreciated her honesty, quite rare in many retail assistants. She was able to advise on not just the frame, but what would fit well with my nose shape and with the type of lenses I was getting. I’m really blind, so I have quite thick lenses – though really thinned down with their service, so needed a frame that would be able to support this.
Finally we settled on a stunning Hugo Boss pair! Check it out online here.
There was so much choice and lots of designers to pick from but Hugo Boss have some absolutely stunning frames. I love the minimalist branding too – in my opinion, glasses should highlight your face not the brand.
They’re really comfortable – apart from my strong change in prescription, I never had to ‘wear’ the frames in. Oh and it comes with all important accessories, a Hugo Boss glasses case and cloth. Overall, I love the look, it’s timeless and will work with whatever trends come in this season.
I was delighted, I really needed a good pair of glasses and since wearing I’ve had lots of lovely compliments and my eyes haven’t been sore at all (was rubbing my eyes a lot due to over wearing my contacts before, naughty me). Here’s that all important selfie!
Thanks for reading and if you haven’t had your eyes checked in a while, you SHOULD go to Specsavers. And if you fancy yourself a new look this Spring Summer, get yersen a pair of stylish specs. Oh and here’s a free voucher for an eye test! x
