Hello there, thanks for visiting my blog. So, a bit about me; I'm Natalie and I am a Christian, committed to living by God's Word each and every day. I am a proud mother to three beautiful children and creator of The Accidental Mogul - a blog designed to channel my ambitious juices and unleash the writer within! This blog is a reflection of me, so it contains a little bit of everything. I’ll be documenting my walk with my saviour Jesus Christ, as well as my natural hair journey, I'll be writing thought provoking posts, product reviews, hosting giveaway's and of course offering up a generous dollop of everyday mummy musings. I like to hear uplifting and motivational stories, so I’ll be interviewing inspirational people when I can to encourage and inspire others. Sharing experiences is what makes life beautiful, so let's share.

Specs appeal

Firstly let me start by saying that this is not a sponsored or review post. I simply had to share the complete fabulousness that is Direct Specs - the online store specialising in prescription glasses and sunglasses.

I'm short sighted, so I rely on glasses for driving, watching TV and seeing the numbers on buses. Yes its rubbish, so when I lost my one and only pair a few weeks ago (my second pair to lose in as many years) I was not a happy bunny. I had a few pairs of contact lenses left over, so I was OK for several days, but when they ran out I had to plan my days around whether or not I'd have to drive in the dark, which happens to be an absolute no, no when you don't have 20/20 vision. 

Direct specs was recommended to me a few years back by a friend who had a really nice pair of glasses on and when she told me she'd only spent £35 when I'd spent a whopping ten times that on a pair of Armani prescription frames a few weeks earlier, I knew I'd be a fool not to get involved.

With the recent episode of yet another lost pair of glasses I was stumped. I couldn't find my old prescription and my two year check up was due, so I had to wait a few weeks to get my eyes tested before I could order myself a new pair. Frustrating.... 

I got my new prescription on Monday and late on Thursday I ordered my new specs online, it said they'd be delivered within ten days, but I received my glasses on Saturday morning. Very impressive.They were £19.99, with £5 for an anti scratch lense and £4.50 postage and packaging. Not to mention a free case. Bargain city or what? I am really pleased with my purchase. 

I have used Direct Specs twice before, the first time I got a pair of Burberry prescription frames for £50 (which I lost)  and my second purchase was a pair of non designer frames for £30 (that was the most recent pair I lost) hmm not quite sure what's going on with that. Anyway the quality is amazing, the service second to none, not to mention super quick and the price is unbelievable. I would recommend this company all day long. 

Their range, especially the selection of designer frames seems to have dwindled a little over the years, but what they do have is still great. Here is a pic of me in my new specs. I love them. Mostly because of the price, but they look good too (even if I do say so myself).

Seriously if you wear prescription glasses check them out, or if you don't, what better than to recommend a friend who does? The amount of money they have saved me over the years can not be scoffed at.
