My experience with GlassesShop.com

Hello everyone!

I was recently offered the opportunity to choose a pair of eyeglasses from GlassesShop.com to try out and review.  I’ve always wondered how ordering glasses online would compare to the ones offered at the ophthalmologist’s office, so I jumped at the opportunity. 


GlassesShop.com offers prescription glasses and prescription sunglasses for much cheaper prices than those offered at the ophthalmologist’s.  As far as selection, GlassesShop.com can’t be beaten.  They offer a wide selection of styles and colours.  If you do not need prescription glasses and want to wear glasses as a fashion accessoryyou can also buy many pairs without prescription lenses.  The site also offers a tool that allows you to virtually try on glasses by uploading your photo.  It’s a great option for someone unsure of what shape would look best on them.  

I chose the GrandPrairie Wayfarer in pink/purple.  The colour and design are beautiful and the frame is really high quality and sturdy.





I love these glasses and I highly recommend GlassesShop.com to anyone who is on the market for a new pair of glasses.  Now, here is a special coupon code for you: GSHOT50 When using this code you can have 50% off on eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses (sale frames excluded). 

Have you tried GlassesShop.com before?  Let me know about your experience in the comments section below.

DIY: Natural deodorant (spray)

Hello everyone! 
If, like me, you hate the chemical-laden, store-bought deodorants,  you can make your own natural deodorant from scratch – in both solid and spray form.  Since I’ve already posted a DIY solid deodorant recipe, I want to share my favourite spray deodorant formula, too.  This one is way easier and quicker to make.  Enjoy!


Ingredients:
  • 60 ml (2 fl oz) witch hazel (astringent)
  • 12 drops of essential oil - Choose an oil with antibacterial and anti-fungal properties such as, sweet orange, tea tree, lemongrass, lavender, etc.

Method:
  1. Pour your ingredients into a spray bottle and screw the top back on. 
  2. Shake well before use. 
It's super simple to make and it really does work!

Have you ever tried using a DIY deodorant?  Do you prefer a solid or a spray formula?

Have a great day!

DIY: Vegan solid perfume

Hello everyone!

A few years ago I posted a DIY recipe for solid perfume.  In that recipe I used beeswax (back then I was not a vegan), so today I decided to give you a vegan alternative.



Ingredients:
  • 2 tsp candelilla wax or soy wax 
  • 2 tsp sweet almond oil
  • 40-50 drops of your favourite essential oil(s)
Note - floral scents are uplifting and romantic, vanilla is warm and sweet, and wood scents can be grounding and calming.  

Method:
  1. Melt wax and carrier oil in microwave.  Or if you want to double boil, follow the method in this post:  DIY: Solid perfume
  2. Add essential oil(s).  
  3. While your perfume mix is still liquid, pour it into the tins. 
  4. Wait until the mix cools and hardens, before moving the tins or closing the lids.
Solid perfumes are easy to package, carry, and re-apply; also handmade perfumes make wonderful gifts.
