    Happy Easter weekend! 

    I hope you’ve had time to relax and enjoy this time off with your loved ones. For me it was all about good healthy food, amazing company, reading and of course surfing the net! If I got paid to surf I would be rich I tell ya! Here are my weekly internet bits and pieces ūüôā


    //These¬†healthy almond milk popsicle’s look amazing. I have to make them soon. I’m craving a healthy dessert!\
    //This is my vision of a¬†“She Shed”. It combines my two favourite loves ; vintage/rustic decor¬†+ nature.\
    //This is definitely an outfit I would rock on the weekends! Loose fitting,layered sweater, tights and a cross body.\
    //Added stand up paddling to my bucket list this year!Look at that scenery!\

    First Impressions :

, a global online eyewear store, contacted me offering to send me a pair of glasses and If I liked the sunglasses to kindly write about them on my blog. As I was under no obligation to write a positive review, I accepted their generous gift and my gold aviator lenses were shipped 1 week after I placed my order. 
    A global eyewear online store that has many years of experience in the optical industry and offers a variety of male and female perscription and NON-perscription frames. caters to the fashion-conscious consumer by making high quality fashionable eyewear available at affordable prices. 
 offers hundreds of frames such as Cat Eye, Round,Wrap Around,Titanium, Square, Clear, Aviator and Wayfarer,Computer, Reading and Bifocal.. just to name a few! 

    Customer Service
    I had never ordered eyewear online so I was apprehensive as to which frames would suite me. I contacted the customer service for some advice and they ultimately helped me decide on my gold rimmed aviators. They were polite, friendly and helpful as they answered all my questions about the ordering process (which is super easy btw). 
    Virtual Try-On Feature
    Customer¬†service¬†also kindly pointed me to the Virtual Try-On Feature on the site. With this feature, you can upload a picture of your face to virtually TRY ON any style of frames you like to see how they look on you. It’s a helpful feature and you’ll get some giggles out of it as well. I now know I look hideous in ¬†round frames!!
    How To Place an Order
    Placing an order on is quick and easy. It’s a 7 step process and makes it easy by highlighting the steps for you so you’re not wasting time navigating the site wondering ” what do I do next?”. For a detailed explanation and¬†tutorial on how to place an order, read here.

    Order Status likes to keep you well informed on the status of your order. You will receive emails to keep you updated on wether your order is Pending, New Order, In Process,  Shipped and Delivered! I found this very helpful as I anxiously awaited my order. 
    First Impressions on Aviator #SC1611
    A¬†week after I placed my order on my non¬†prescription sunglasses were shipped. I received the sunglasses,a case, cleaning cloth and a mini screwdriver. The sunglasses¬†were in great¬†condition, no scratches or¬†deformities on them from the shipping process. suggest that you tighten the¬†screws on the sides of the glasses to ensure they fit you best (hence¬†the reason for¬†the mini screw driver)! The aviators are¬†lightweight, sturdy and¬†definitely¬†a¬†step out of my¬†comfort zone but I think they look good and I’ve received many compliments on them.
    I’m really¬†pleased with my first experience. I’m also very pleased that has¬†graciously decided to give my first 10 readers a voucher code, makeupblog2, that¬†covers a complete pair of glasses from this page¬†¬†
    (Shipping and handling fees are extra.Free frame + single vision lenses.Must be first time customer and voucher expires April 15).
    If you are one of the lucky ones that received a free pair using¬†the voucher code, let me know how you like them in the¬†comments below ūüôā

    Spring ,for many of us, is the season of new awakenings;a fresh start to tackle new projects , develop new ideas, and better¬†oneself. For me,¬†spring is¬†definitely a¬†therapeutic month. I use it declutter my closet, my makeup bag and office! I also use this new season to really get in touch with myself and to try to seek out a better¬†version¬†of me. It could be a new hair style or colour. I may add a few new beauty products to my collection as well as a couple (may be a bit more than a couple) of key pieces to my¬†wardrobe. I also feel very¬†rejuvenated during the¬†turn of the season and find myself very inspired, creative and lively. I find it so¬†therapeutic¬†to watch the snow melt¬†and buds¬†blooming on trees. I¬†hope you feel¬†inspired as well ūüôā¬†Here are this weeks internet loves and obsessions!
