Feeling Blue? How About A Giveaway?


In these photos I was feeling the opposite of blue.. (red?)  I was the picture of health and current me hates past me a little right now for that. You know (because I wont stop complaining about it) that I’ve been under the weather, well today I found out it’s Tonsillitis.. great! I have medication now so fingers crossed I’ll start to feel better soon but yeah.. that’s where the title inspiration came from, that and the colour of the sunglasses of course 😉


Moving swiftly on, those of you who are regular readers will know that I’ve developed a slight Ray Ban obsession of late so when Sunglasses Shop offered me a pair to review I couldn’t say yes quick enough. I did however let me husband choose this pair as I can only wear so many at once and they’re all pretty much unisex, right? He initially chose a pair of royal blue ones that I gently steered him away from in favour of this more subtle navy pair. What he liked about them other than the colour was that they’re matte, a bit different.. I like it too. They do have a slightly more masculine edge but I definitely still steal them from time to time and they are a nice change from basic black or brown and are a little more forgiving against my pale skin too. The style are the New Wayfarer which are a little smaller than the originals (I’m not sure which I prefer) and a little more delicate, the regular Wayfarers Lee has seem really chunky compared to these.. just a note for those deciding between the two – I also have a tortoiseshell pair you can see here for reference.

As I always say I was put off buying more expensive sunglasses for so long after breaking every pair of Primark specials I’d ever bought but as yet I’m yet to so much as scratch a pair of RayBans and that’s including the aviators that fell off my head on to the pavement – you really do get what you pay for so if you’ve been hankering after a pair but worry about quality I would absolutely recommend them. Of course if you’re looking for a super trendy pair the high street might be a better bet but for classic shades you can keep forever I think they’re well worth the money.

    Tonsilitis is hideous! My sister would get it all the time and then eventually she had to get them out! Love the glasses, I have just bought my 57th (just an estimate) pair of Primark sunnies, so I think it is time to invest a better pair! Nice to see you back xxx

    Sucks that you have tonsilitis. I used to get it all the time when I was a teenager. BTW I love it when people use rafflecopter for giveaways, its way better than telling people to comment because then most people comment once and some people spam the comments trying to win. I wish there was a way to use rafflecopter on youtube. In fact youtubers should just link to their blog and tell everyone to go over there to enter.

    That blue color is so nice, subtle enough but would still add that pop of color without having to try too hard and would definitely go with anything,love them. Rafflecopter seems to be the app of the moment but it seems to work great and is so easy to enter and fair, your not having to try and use a million hashtags etc the app does it all for you.
