When was the last time you updated your look? #selfcare and glassesUSA.com

The year was 1998. I was in grade 10, and I had picked out a fancy pair of specs that had the most amazing frames. The frames were purple, with subtle red and blue hints. I absolutely loved them.

Fast forward to 2014...same face, same frames (different lenses, of course!)

Yes, you read that correctly. I haven't taken twenty minutes out of my busy schedule to get myself new glasses. I've poured pretty much everything of who I am into my business, my boys, my family...I had kind of lost sight of some of the fundamentals. But realistically, I don't have the time to always take care of some of those fundamental needs, which is why working with GlassesUSA.com was so amazing.

Being a bit quirky, I like to be able to switch up my look and wear my glasses from time to time instead of wearing contacts every day. I logged on to GlassesUSA.com and was able to search by small frames. This is a feature that I really loved about the search functions on the left side bar, as I have a smaller face and it can sometimes be difficult to find glasses that are flattering and stylish.

My first selection was Pupil in Tortoise. These are by far my favorite. I love that they are the round hipster style of glasses, but they are a smaller frame so they suit my face really well. As soon as they arrived, I tried them on and noticed a few key features.

First, they fit perfectly. There are absolutely no tweaks or adjustments needed for these frames. This is largely due to the spring loaded hinges at the temples, which ensure a perfect fit. Secondly, they are made from a slightly grippy plastic, which is something that I really appreciate. I am often fumbling around on my nightside table to find my glasses at 4am when I need to feed the baby. More often than not, my glasses go flying on the floor and I can't find them. The grippy texture of the plastic ensures that my glasses stay put, even when they're not on my face.

The next pair that I chose were the Joey Blue frames. I really love being able to incorporate color and style into my accessories, and the blue frames, paired with the rectangular shape, were a perfect choice. They make a bold statement in colour, but are quite simplistic and minimalist in design. The first thing that I noticed when wearing them is that they are really lightweight. Again, spring loaded hinges at the temples for a perfect fit, and the arms are reinforced with metal for an extra layer of protection.

Not only have these two pairs of glasses updated my look rather instantly, but GlassesUSA.com as a whole is an amazing company to work with if you are crunched for time and need glasses fast. I placed my order on a Thursday, and by the Monday they were here and in my hands, even with having to cross the border and go through customs. They offer FREE shipping, which is always a bonus, and stand by their products. If you ever have an issue or extra need, they are willing to work with you to ensure that your needs are met.

Don't wait sixteen years to update your look! Whether you need something funky and hip, or simple and sophisticated, get started by creating your wishlist on GlassesUSA.com. From there, you can view frames by shape, color, style and collection and choose the ones that are perfect for you.
