Eye Buy Direct Review

Hello everyone!

I am a person who tends to wear contacts every single day. For anyone who can relate, I’m sure you’ve heard your optometrist say “you should give your eyes some breathing time, and wear your glasses once a week”. Now listen, I think we all know how much glasses with prescriptions from our doctor’s office or places like LensCrafters can cost. Usually in the three-digit range, even with insurance.

I wanted to find a different, more affordable option. That’s when I found the company Eye Buy Direct. I remember telling a cashier at Forever 21 I liked her glasses, and she had mentioned them. I’m so glad I took a chance and checked out their website! And no, I’m not sponsored or anything. I bought these myself and this is my honest review.

The website it pretty easy to navigate and is has an easy layout to work with. You can filter out many things such as the color, price, shape of the frames, and the size. My favorite feature is that you can “try on” the glasses by uploading a picture of yourself. It gives a preview of what you will look like with those frames, and I found it to be a decent estimation.

After hours of searching and reading reviews, I decided to purchase the Hepburn frames in the color Ivory Tortoise. I added my prescription, anti-glare, UV protection, and a brown case for and extra five dollars.

They arrived right when they were supposed to and came in the super chic and minimal black box. The case I purchased is brown leather (definitely faux), but it looks so classy and simple.

The glasses themselves were exactly as pictured. They sit well on my face, but the company also sends an adjustment tool with your package, so you can adjust it if necessary. Also, quick tip, you can go into any LensCrafter’s and get your glasses adjusted for free.

I love the style of these glasses. The ivory tortoise design is professional, yet fashionable, adding a nice touch. It’s perfect for work, but can also go with casual looks. Before these, my other glasses were a tiny rectangle shape, with an all black frame. I didn’t like it and only wore it at home. I’ve definitely been wearing my new glasses out and about, and have gotten a lot of compliments on them.

So, price-wise, these are amazing. The frames were $40 and with all of the things I added, the total came to $62.95. But, EyeBuyDirect seems to have a lot of deals and have a lot of social media promoters. I checked their Instagram and saw that on their story, they showed someone’s promotion link with a code. I used the code and got $15 off my purchase. I chose regular shipping which was $5.95, so my overall total was $53.16. That is a great price compared to the typical retail glass-wear stores.

They have a lot of different style options, with varying prices. Most of the ones I saw were from $22-$70. I think it has something for everyone, they also have sunglasses as well.

Let me know what you guys thinks and if you have a favorite place to purchase your glasses! Thanks so much for reading! Follow me on Instagram and Twitter at AmandaSushma. Also, check out my video review on these glasses here.

Loft Haul (Video) | AmandaSushma

Hello everyone!

Sorry for taking a little sabbatical from the blog! But now I’m back and ready to share some fun outfits, makeup, and other awesome things with you guys!

I made a Loft Haul video so you guys can see all the items I received. I really like Loft because it’s one of the first “adult” stores that caters to my size. I’m petite, so it’s hard to find affordable work pants and tops that fit correctly, but Loft has it. I also like that it carries sizes for plus sizes and taller women, so everyone should be able to find cute things from them.

Thanks for watching! Let me know which items you liked!

Romwe Haul (Video)

Hello everyone,

Spring is here and we’re almost into summer! I wanted some new clothes for the season, while also not spending too much. That’s why I decided to check out Romwe. Romwe is one of those sites you see advertised all the time on Facebook and Instagram. I figured I’d check it out because they usually have a picture of something really cute, with $11 next to it.

So, I ended up purchasing some items for the website. I bought mostly clothes, which I do try on in the video, and some random accessories as well.

Check out my video below and let me know what you think!

Amazon Five-Shelf Stand

Hello everyone!

I decided it was time for me to invest in a shelf for my bathroom because my counter was overflowing with makeup products. I was searching Amazon for a inexpensive, but cute shelf and came across this one, sold by Furinno.

If you would like to see my video where I actually build it, click here.

The stand contains five shelves, which can hold fifteen pounds each. The directions do recommend that heavier items should be placed on the lower shelves. It also came with a cable tie and nail, to nail the stand on the wall. When I was reading the Amazon reviews, people said that when they place the stand on carpet, it isn’t too stable so the cable tie comes in handy. I was setting mine on the tile of my bathroom floor, so I didn’t need the cable tie.

I chose the beech shelves with the white poles/legs. They do have a variety of colors, so if you don’t like what I choose, there are more options for you. Also, note that the poles are plastic.

It was fairly easy to set up. If you do purchase this, be sure that you use the shelve with the four-holes as the bottom and not the others (only one has four-holes). It took me about twenty minutes. I will say, the holes on the shelves are circular, while the poles are more oval, so it was difficult trying to push and turn them in there, but I got it eventually.

Overall, I spend about $19 on this stand and I’m happy with what I received. It fits the look of my bathroom perfectly. The style of this stand is perfect for corners, so if you need to fill up a corner whether it’s in your living room or bathroom, this may be for you.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments! Thanks for reading!

THE BIG CHOP!

Hello everyone!

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! I just wanted to share an update about myself that I’m excited about. I did the big chop, chopping off 10 inches of hair. I know it may not seem like such a big deal, but I’ve had really long hair ever since I was young. One day I just felt spontaneous and took my butt to Great Clips and asked her to chop it off.

It’s a new and fun change, and just reminded me that we worry about the smallest things. I’m not sure why I was so nervous, maybe because I cared about what people thought, but that’s totally out the window.

I just wanted to share this update with you guys, just in case someone needed a little push to do something they’ve been itching to do!

Hope you guys enjoyed!

Fun Purple Night Out Look

Hello everyone!

I have a fun glittery and purple look for you guys today! I felt a little burned out from work yesterday, and then I looked at my makeup and felt really creative. Creating new looks really helps lessen my stress and I love doing it!

So without further ado, here’s the look. It’s pretty simple actually. I used three different shades of purple eyeshadows, a gold liner, and a white pencil liner.

I used two palette’s, the Makeup Revolution palette and the Sweet Peach palette from Too-Face.

First, from the Makeup Revolution palette, I used the lightest shade of purple on my inner corners. Then, I took the purple shade next to it and swept it across the rest of my lids.

 

For the outer corners, I took a little of the dark purple from the Sweet Peach palette, and carefully blended that out.


I created a simple wing with my gold glitter eyeliner for NYX. Then, I finished the look off with lining my water liner with white pencil liner from NYX.


I hope you guys enjoyed this look! Thanks for reading!
