Ray-Ban Lovin’

Ola! Apologies for the lack of blogging lately, I’ve been sunning it up in Portugal (I’ll do a whole separate post on my travels next week!) It’s definitely one of the prettiest places I’ve ever been so naturally I took heaps of photos for the blog, much to my boyfriend’s delight ha.

I had the pleasure of collaborating with Vision Express earlier in the summer and I’ve been wanting to share these with you for ages! I had an eye test done which I was a bit nervous about as it’s been over 3 years since I went for one (naughty me). It went smoothly and everyone was really lovely. The test itself was thorough and Amrit talked me through everything, it was actually pretty interesting to find out how much they can tell from checking your eyes – it’s not just about your sight but your overall health too so definitely worth booking in and getting checked. It’s only a few minutes out of your day and could potentially save your sight.

My eyes turned out to be pretty healthy, I have a condition called astigmatism in my right eye (basically means it’s shaped like a rugby ball rather than a sphere – more info here) and my right eye needed a slight prescription. I also suffer with eye strain due to the nature of my job so then began the task of choosing some glasses. I’m indecisive at the best of times!

Over an hour later I finally picked a pair (big thanks to Ross and Laura for being so patient!) and a pair of sunglasses too. I went for some Ray-Ban Wayfarers (c/o Vision Express) which I am in love with – they were altered there and then for the perfect fit. I’m obsessed the tortoiseshell style and they got plenty of wear on holiday and on the beach! I’ve always been a fan of Ray-Bans having owned a couple of pairs of Aviators and I’d been eyeing up some Wayfarers for a while so these were perfect. What do you think?
