EBD Blue Light Glasses + Promo Code!

How much time do you spend in front of a computer screen? Reading on an iPad? Checking your phone? If you’re like me, it’s a lot. Most of my work during the day happens in front of a computer then blogging, reading, maybe a little online shopping is all done online… in front of a screen. My eyes would begin to feel tired and dry after a long day of sitting in front of the blue light screen and sometimes I’d even end up with a splitting headache.

When I started to do a little research, I realized how bad blue light is for our eyes and while I don’t currently wear prescription glasses, I found the EBD Blue Light Glasses on Eye Buy Direct and thought I’d test them out. Blue light eye strain is notorious for a range of symptoms. Research shows that over 90% of people who work in front of a computer screen exhibit at least one negative symptom from blue light eye strain; anything from blurred or double vision to neck & back pain, even migranes.

Just after wearing my glasses for a day, I could tell a huge difference. My eyes didn’t feel as tired or dry and I felt like I could keep writing after I’d usually hit my limit.

The great thing about Eye Buy Direct is there are a myriad of frames to choose from, in all different price points. You can get them with or without a regular prescription and they even have a 14-day return policy if you end up not loving the style you ordered or want to try a different frame.

Three Thrills by Thursday

Happy Thursday, babes! I honestly cannot catch a grip on just how quickly time is moving. Autumn is definitely settling in our here on the east coast and though it’s very welcome, I’m still holding onto hopes of an indian summer (preferably a weekend, mother nature, if you’re reading!)

First thrill this week is just an overall general update… My Mexico trip, for my dear friend’s bachelorette, will go down in history as one of the greatest trips of all time. See Instagram for Mexico photos as there are too many fabulous ones to post. Otherwise, see below for a quick insta- roundup.

My second thrill this week, admittedly, is something I’m a little late to the game for: Trunk Club. For those of you who are in my boat, Trunk Club gives you a personal stylist who, after getting to know your style, sends you a trunk of hand picked items. I was so skeptical because half the time I can barely pick out clothes for myself. Sara, my stylist, hit it out of the park because my trunk was amazing! I wish I would have known about this in college, too! I am so addicted and who doesn’t want to come home to a surprise new wardrobe every few weeks? Sign me up! If you’re interested, click here!

Lastly, I’m gushing over a beautiful, affordable new jewelry brand *heart eyes* Shashi. Based out of NYC, these pieces are great to pair with every day attire but also are great to dress up that LBD on date night. I love the tassels- they are so fun. I also love this line because they make awesome gifts.
