Review on Felix Grays

So I recently gifted Henry the Felix Gray Glasses, they are glasses that filter out the blue light so that when you are on your computer or phone all day it doesn't strain your eyes as much. These glasses are made for people who have prescriptions and people who dont. This is what the glasses look like!

 

 

They are sorta pricey starting at $95 so I wanted to ask Henry what he thought of them and if he thought it was worth it.   Here's our official interview ;)

Do you notice a difference with the glasses? 

Yes! My eyes are not as tired at the end of the day, and I find I don't strain to look at screens anymore. I also feel better knowing that if I do need to look at screens all day long, that I have some type of protection on my eyes. Its an unexpected source of peace of mind.

How fast did you notice a difference, immediately? A few hours? All day?

Felix Gray review blue light glasses

I didn't notice a difference until the end of the first day I wore them. But now I can see a difference when I'm not wearing them! If I look at my computer screen for too long without them on I realize my eyes are straining, so I get up and go put them on!

Was it a big adjustment for someone who doesn't wear glasses?

Yes! I'm still getting used to having glasses on almost all day while at work. But they are much lighter than sunglasses so they aren't heavy on my face, which is nice.

Is there anything you don't like about them?

They are a little too big for my face. They tend to fall a bit down my nose when wearing them for long periods of time so I keep having to push them back up. Other then that, they are great! 

Why didn't you want magnification?

A coworker of mine had a pair and I tried them on and I just didn't like it. It is such a small difference that I couldn't really understand why to get it, plus I would imagine walking around the office with slightly magnified glasses could cause problems. Just something that I wasn't too interested in.

Would you recommend them? Do you think its worth the price?

I would absolutely recommend them! If you are someone who stares at screens all day you should for sure get blue filtering glasses. Felix Gray is a little bit on the pricier side so if you can afford them I would say go for it. I think they are worth the price since they are very well made and you can feel the high-quality material. If you are unsure about blue filter glasses, you can wear them for 30 days and return them for a full refund if you don't like them.

Will you get them for me?

Of course <3 

So what are you're thoughts? Would you ever try these? I know there are some on Amazon for like $30 but I have no idea how reliable they are!

Engagement Photos

Hey everyone! Since our save the dates just went out I want to share some of our engagement photos with you! And to tell you how I choose our outfits.  This took way more time and I would like to admit but I also feel like our pictures came out well because of it.  I love fall and I wanted to get outfits that went well with fall leaves but we felt comfortable in as well. 

I knew I wanted the traditional two outfits, one casual and one more dressy.  I have seen a lot of friends go for more flowy dresses but with my body type that just doesn't work.  I wanted a more structured dress and so I got this one from lulus! 

I got the advice that we should try to dress in the colors that would be our wedding colors because it would look so nice on our website.  That turned out to be a lot harder than expected so I just did the colors. The other piece of advice I got was to mix textures, so Henry had a plaid shirt and I went a little plainer. 

I got my outfit first and then Henry's because I thought that may be easier.  (I was sorta wrong but it did all workout :) ) That is my piece of advice since I think its harder for women sometimes to feel more comfortable in their outfits.

That's my #1 tip is get something that you feel comfortable in because it shows in photos.  I did like the idea of a skirt but I knew that I would constantly be adjusting and worrying.

Ps. I used Minted for our Save the Dates and I LOVED how they turned out!

Here are some of the items for our outfits! And some couldnt link like:

Valentines Day Look + Freebies!

Hey friends! I hope you have some fun plans for Valentines Day or Galentines Day! I like to think its a fun day to really play up your feminine side.  Upon your request on Instagram, I pulled some of my favorite looks for makeup and outfits! Whether you're going for something more casual or dressed up! Read till the end to check out some of the freebie's I've made for you! 

REMEMBER WHEN SHOPPING: Use Ebates for cash back and coupons! Honey is a great back up when Ebates doesn't work on the site.

Makeup:

I loved these 3 looks. A bold lip with gold eye shadow is pretty simple really but always a stunner! 

I also love the look of a neutral eye, maybe with a wing to spice it up a little.  Then a pink lip gloss.  I have been loving Bare Minerals Lip Glosses lately, I think the colors flirt or heartbreaker would look so pretty (how fitting are those names). Or maybe you just want a more subtle look with a pink look.  I think this look is so romantic and pretty.

You couldn't go wrong either way! 

I think these products will help you acheive all of these looks! I've gathered high end items and drugstore! 

This year, I think Henry and I are laying pretty low, but I still want to dress up a little in some pink or red.  I'm loving a deep burgundy sweater or a white twist sweater.  Just something a little different.  I also found these beautiful red dresses. I dont think you need to go all out.  Just through on a cute pair of heels and match it with one of the make up looks! But you can also go all out to a fancy dinner.  I am a firm believer that Valentines day is how you want to spend it, whether its curled up on the couch or out to a fancy dinner! 

I pulled some items for every occasion! 

Freebies

I wanted to give some freebies out for Valentines Day as my treat to you! Whether you're putting together a galentines event, making coupons for your man or just giving a card, I've got you covered!
