Happy New Year, my Swell friends!
So I didn't blog for the whole of December - whoops! Instead of giving you a myriad of excuses, I'm just going to promise to be better and try to do more posts in 2013.
For my first post of the year, I will be reviewing a new pair of glasses, courtesy of the good folks at Lensway.co.uk. I must confess that despite being terribly short-sighted, I often don't wear any glasses, so I was looking forward to having a good pair of frames to inspire me to actually wear them! That being said, I already have a pair I love from London Retro, but it's nice to have different options to choose from on a daily basis.
After having a good ol' browse of their site, I was really impressed by the wide variety of spec styles on offer. Finally, after hours of internal debate, I settled on a pair I liked - the "Derek Cardigan" frames (who doesn't love a cardigan?) in the colour "Rootbeer".
I was a little nervous about ordering glasses without physically trying them on first, but I had no reason to worry as the frames turned out to be perfect! A slightly different shape to what I usually go for, but still flattering and comfortable. I also really like the clear plastic they're made from as it makes me look a bit cooler than I really am.
As you can see, I have modelling stuff down to a fine art nowadays...
Not only did the glasses look good, they were also really comfortable. I wore them for a full working day (from about 8am till 8pm), and hardly noticed them at all. In the past, I've had a real issue with glasses feeling heavy on my apparently soft head, but these felt nice and light.
In conclusion, I would definitely recommend a pair of specs from Lensway.co.uk. Not only do they have a lot of choice, but they're also very reasonably priced. My pair cost £89 (including the lenses), and came with a good sturdy case and even a little screwdriver should I need to tighten them up. Thanks for making my vision better and more stylish, Lensway.co.uk!
Also, if you follow me on Twitter, you may have already seen my New Years Resolution for 2013. This year, I have promised to do at least one nice thing a day for someone else. It can be big or it can be small; the only rule is that it has to be nice. To help me make sure I do it, I've started a little Tumblr. If you're interested, you can read all about it over at http://niceonefrankie.tumblr.com. Follow me and feel free to share the nice things you get up to too!
