Fashion and Style Police Reviews EyeBuyDirect Glasses

I am shortsighted, so I am never without my contact lenses and glasses. I usually wear my contact lenses but on some days, I like to wear a regular pair of glasses. Which is why I was thrilled when I got the opportunity to try out EyeBuyDirect Glasses.

For those who have never heard of EyeBuyDirect, it is a one stop, online optical shop founded by Roy Hessel. He founded the company on the belief that quality eyewear should be accessible and affordable for everyone. EyeBuyDirect as the name implies, ensures your glasses are affordable and accessible by cutting out the middle men. The pairs of glasses go straight to their customers from the factory, which means the savings is passed on to the customers.

 

I started off with a lovely demo box including some product samples from some of EyeBuyDirect popular ranges.  It was a box filled with 3 frames – sunglasses, eyeglasses and digital protection lenses. There was also an eye mask included, which is so thoughtful. I love using that.

I knew I had to try the frames and lenses for myself once I tried the demo box. And I am glad I did.

I found the whole process of ordering on the website very easy.  The website is customer friendly and so easy to navigate. It was such a straight forward process. Once I decided on the frames I wanted, all I needed to do was put in my prescription and select the type of lens I wanted.

Here are the frames I got –

I adore the design of this stunning frame. The subtle lines of this premium Sequence medium-sized frame will enhance all of my features. I also like the stud accents on the hinges and front. I think it is an edgy cool frame and I am super in love with it.

For the lenses, I went for a Polarized – Brown 60% as I wanted it to work as a sunshade as well for sunny days. In the summer months, if I am unable to wear my contact lenses for whatever reason, I usually end up squirting in my regular glasses, which is a pain. I am glad all that is now in the past with this stunning pair.

EyeBuyDirect Aura Clear Jade Eyeglasses For Women

This stunning Aura Clear Jade Eyeglasses For Women is definitely one of my favourites pairs. I love the marine blue colour. The wayfarer shape is a beauty, and so are the double stud accents at the frame corners and temples.

This is definitely a premium/top quality frame. I opted for Color: Transitions® Adaptive – Gray lenses. These are photochromic lenses, which means the shade of lenses are clear indoors and darken automatically outdoors. This is my first time trying this type of lenses and I am loving it so far. It is just what I need in my prescription glasses collection.

I also had the opportunity to get 2 extra frames for some family members, and they are loving too. Both frames are of great quality and they look very stylish. They also come with photochromic transition lenses. Here they frames are –

The whole process of finding the perfect pair of frames to match your face and lifestyle can be pretty daunting. Which is why EyeBuyDirect has loads of frame and lenses options available. They also offer 14-Day Fit & Style Guarantee, which gives you enough time to ensure you are happy with your new frame.

 

What do you think of these frames? Have you shopped EyeBuyDirect glasses?

What to do when you want counseling but your spouse doesn’t

Like I said in my previous relationship post, marriage is a lot of work. It takes time and effort to have a happy marriage. Which is why we must always continue to improve our relationship with our spouse. I have been married for almost 10 years and I know how much work is involved. Good marriages struggle for many reasons. Some examples of these struggles are centred around infidelity, finances, in-laws interference, lack of intimacy, an addiction, unhealthy behaviours (manipulating, belittling, name-calling etc.), and so on.

If you marriage is dealing with any of these issues, you and your spouse may need some help from a qualified therapist. But the issue is, these days, many people shy away from counseling for various reasons. Many associate counseling with failure. To them, it means they have failed at their marriage. Others are just too ashamed to open up to a third-party and would rather keep at it or work away.

What to do when you want counseling but your spouse doesn’t

So what do you do when you decide your marriage or relationship needs help but your spouse doesn’t want to speak with anyone? There are 2 options. You could decide to continue being unhappy in your marriage and pretend you are happy and fulfilled. Or you could try following these tips –

 

Give it some time

You could try giving it some time to see if your spouse changes his/her mind. Sometimes, time could help shed some light on the relationship issues and how to go about solving them. The last thing you would want is for your spouse to agree to see a Therapist with you grudgingly. You won’t get any results that way.

 

See a Therapist online

If your spouse is not comfortable with the idea of going to see a Therapist, you could try having online counseling sessions. Your spouse may be more open to these sessions as you can have it from the comfort of your homes and still achieve the same results. Online counseling works great for busy people or when your preferred Therapist is far away.

 

Think outside the box

You can try reading relationship books and blogs with your spouse. There are also various marriage podcasts and movies available you may both find helpful. Sometimes we need to think outside the box when we find ourselves in difficult situations like when you think your marriage needs help and your spouse disagrees.

Work on yourself

When we are dealing with issues, it is always easier to blame someone else for all the problems, and play victim. But the first step in healing and improving is to work on ourselves. So that means reading self-improvement resources and seeing a qualified Therapist if needed to discuss issues. Having a great mental health is essential for a healthy marriage. So take a good look at the mirror and work on yourself.

 

Thanks for reading. Do feel free to leave a comment telling me what you think about relationship issues and going for couple counselling. Also, please remember to share this post on your social media platforms.

4 Things You Need to Know Before You Go for Couple Therapy

Relationships are hard work. Both parties have to continue to give the relationship all they have in other for it to thrive. If one person is on board, and the other really isn’t, there is no way the relationship would survive. A good relationship can do wonders for our mental health, which is why it is so very important. Couple therapy can help save a relationship, and that explains why it is very popular today.

Life is so busy with the endless work, commuting, childcare, and all the other responsibilities we have as adults. Sometimes, we forget to nurture our relationships. If your relationship is struggling, some couples therapy may be all it needs to bring the spark back to life. Here are 4 things you need to know before you go for couple therapy.

 

Make sure the Therapist is qualified

Before starting the therapy sessions, you should ensure the therapist is qualified to provide the services. The last thing you would want is having to waste your time with a half-baked counselor/therapist. Apart from the fact that you would both be wasting your time with an unqualified therapist, you won’t want to take on the wrong advice. So it is best to ensure the Therapist is qualified before you sign up for any sessions.

 

Set money aside

I am all about budgeting this year, so this tip shouldn’t surprise my regular readers. Once you are sure of the qualifications of the Therapist, you need to set some money aside for your sessions. You both need to decide on how much you are willing to spend on the counseling, and stick to your budget. It makes sense to set aside a realistic amount to cover the costs of the sessions, so you don’t end using a form of credit to pay up. Having a budget for your couple counseling that allows some room for flexibility is the way to go.

 

Have an initial session

You both need to see if you like your Therapist’s way of counseling. Having an initial session to check this is recommended. Counseling is a very personal experience. You would be answering very personal questions, so you need to like your therapist and be very comfortable. If not, it would be a waste of time and money.  You both also need to know the Therapist’s views on marriages and relationships, and ensure it sits well with both parties.

Make sure you are both willing

This takes us back to the first thing I mentioned on here. You both need to be willing to put in the work for any relationship or marriage to work. The same goes for couple counselling. Both parties need to be willing to go for couple counselling and do all it takes to better the relationship. If one is on board and the other isn’t, it would be a waste of time. Communication is very important, and you need to communicate properly even more when you are undergoing couple counseling. Without communication, the therapy would be dead before it even starts.
