Review – Eyebuydirect Made My Need for Glasses Fun and Fashionable All From Home

Published

on

Who knew getting new glasses could be so easy and so stylish?

Recently needing new eyeglasses is something I was no looking forward to. It’s the expense added to the time it takes to get them. Luckily, I had a recent eye prescription from a visit to the doctor, but I wasn’t sure I actually liked any of the selections the local store affiliation had in stock. I did end up with a rather inexpensive pair, just because I didn’t to leave empty handed.

Yet, as time passed and I was looking for an additional pair that was stylish and sophisticated as well as easily attainable and even affordable. The perfect find ended up coming in the selections from Eyebuydirect.

Since 2005, they have been known online for putting focus on high-quality eyewear at prices real people can afford. From trending designs like their Bohemia Renewal collection that features 38 new friendly styles, with soft colors, natural finishes, and an eclectic edge. While other plastics such as bags or bottles take 60-1,000 years to biodegrade, eyewear in this collection decomposes in as quickly as 150 days. It also means selections with everyday prices on affordable prescription glasses, sunglasses, and blue light filtering lenses.

On the website you find dozens of options on how to find your fit and match yourself with frames that comfortably fit your face. I selected the Earth-friendly and bold and modern Bohemian style named Florus. Frames like these in the collection are made using materials derived from cellulose acetate flakes, extracted from cotton and wood pulp in addition to bio-based plasticizers. Unlike other plasticizers used in eyewear, bio-based plasticizers are environmentally friendly, non-toxic, and maintain flexibility at varying temperatures.

The website was easy to use. I especially loved the Virtual Try-On option. You simply from your phone can use your cell camera and enjoy a real-time preview of frames on your face.  It’s pretty spectacular to do this all in the comfort of your home. In addition to the Virtual Try-On feature, check their is a guide on how to measure your pupillary distance, so you can get a better idea of glasses size. And to add, there is even a Fit & Style Quiz, too, for another great way to find your perfect pair.

Choosing lenses is also easy and accurate. The lens material and lens coating contribute to how well you see and how happy you are with your eyeglasses. The many options were easily targeted for your needs and the guide to eyeglass lenses absolutely helped me understand what lens treatment options were available.

After placing an order the glasses shipped quickly and what arrived brought me absolute joy. They fit perfectly and the prescription was absolutely accurate. I couldn’t be more pleased. And best of all the affordable range of constant sales and specials online make it so you can get a variety of glasses and sunglasses to fit your different style needs throughout the season.

Easter Gifts: Just Bee’s Lilac Candle and A Toothbrush and Paste That Will Change Your Life

Published

on

Going to brunch, lunch or dinner at someone’s house, for me alway entails bringing a gift. For Easter, I have the perfect suggestion. I just tried Just Bee’s Lilac Candle and am so impressed. This candle packs a scent that just by being open, sends that timeless fragrance wafting through my apartment bringing in that essence of springtime. Hints of rose, vanilla, honey and jasmine add to the aroma so that the room smells like a country garden. Made from natural soy wax, organic coconut oil and beeswax you get up to 20 hours of clean burning with 3.5oz ($15.98), 40 hours with 7oz($21.98) and 70 hours with the 13oz ($28.98).

They also have a Pomegranate and Lemon Rind and Ginger Pamplemousse, I can’t wait to try.

With all those Easter treats, the next item on my must have list is the tooth brush and tooth paste by Mouthwatchers. Created by Doctor Plotka, this manual toothbrush offers a breakthrough in oral care. First the bristles are silver infused, which naturally eliminate 99% of bacteria, viruses and fungi within 6 hours. The bristles are also dual-layered, which means they are 10x thinner than leading brands and as thin as a human hair at the tip. They reach places other brushes miss and deep into grooves where 95% of cavities form. The best part ($9.73) for two.


This company also makes the best tooth paste. Doctor Plotka’s 100% Naturally Sourced Whitening Toothpaste is an all-in-one flouride-free formula. The tooth paste, whitens with silica and hydroxyapatite which lowers the risk of erosion and restores your teeth to their natural whiteness. It uses organic propolis, a natural honeybee product known for its antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, reduces the risk of cavities, gum sensitivity and plaque build-up. With mineral-rich thermal spring Water, sourced from France, is known for its anti-inflammatory benefits which can soothe irritation. The organic mint gives your mouth and breath long-lasting freshness. Best yet, 100% of ingredients are sourced from natural origins. This tube is fully recyclable and made with 44% post-consumer recycled materials. I found this tooth paste the best I have ever used and am now hooked.

Lincoln Elevates National Fragrance Day

Published

on

Lincoln is introducing its full in-cabin Digital Scent collection, now offering a total of seven specially curated fragrances.

“We are bringing Digital Scent to the all-new 2024 Lincoln Nautilus, allowing our clients to immerse themselves in revitalizing moments during their drive,” said Teresa Cheung, manager of Client Experience. “Personalization is important to our clients, and we have allowed them to select their preferred scent to customize their very own in-vehicle sanctuary.

For the all-new Nautilus vehicles equipped with Lincoln Digital Scent feature, clients will receive a collection of three in-cabin scents, each with a blend of scents that create a specially curated experience:

  • Mystic Forest: an earthy blend cedarwood, rich notes of patchouli, amber and yuzu citrus
  • Ozonic Azure: a crisp fusion of aromatic patchouli and traces of freesia and spice
  • Violet Cashmere: a harmonization of rich violet, grapefruit, and golden citrus

Four new available scents now added to the collection include:

· Cloud Balsam: an invigorating blend of lush pine needles, oak moss, crushed tonka and vanilla beans

· Serene Seashore: hints of juicy melon, fragrant lily, musk and bright lemon combine in this radiant mixture

· Twilight Embers: An enchanting suite of patchouli, floral jasmine, fresh apple, and deep leather undertones

· Sunlight Retreat: Sandalwood and rose highlight this union and are accented by crisp red fruit and balsamic notes

As the focus on overall personal wellness grows, Lincoln continues to explore new ways to bring in signature features to its vehicles. Lincoln engineers and designers have studied how the senses can impact mood, as well as physical and mental well-being, and how that translates into a relaxing experience for the client. The sense of smell is of special interest, as scents and the power of aromatherapy can affect overall mood.

“Scent is one of the five senses that has one of the strongest connections to not only memory, but emotion and can play a significant role in creating an experience for our clients on the road,” said Flore Tramblin, visualization designer for Lincoln.

Fragrances were specially curated by perfumiers for the brand in collaboration with Lincoln designers. Lincoln specifically chose to work with fragrance suppliers that use International Fragrance Association (IFRA)-certified fragrances.

The name Digital Scent is fitting as each scent cartridge features a microchip and is controlled through the vehicle’s center stack touchscreen. The scenting experience also works in collaboration with the new Lincoln Digital Experience, which is easily customizable to let clients extend their digital lives into the vehicle through their favorite apps and services.

Lincoln Digital Scent cartridges are available for purchase on the accessories page of Lincoln.com, through Lincoln Access Rewards, and utilizing the in-vehicle QR code in the all-new Nautilus.
