Edith Round Sunglasses at*

Hello! Summer is well and truly here with many of us jetting off on holiday or finding ways to enjoy the sun. I was recently contacted to see if I would like to review a pair of glasses. I have to wear prescription glasses and one thing I love most about Summer is being able to switch from my usual frames to wearing sunglasses. offer glasses and prescription sunglasses online. If you wear glasses often you will know how hard it can be to find a pair that really suit your face shape and style but the website has a wide range of glasses frames to choose from. Ordering glasses online can be a daunting process but their website makes this so easy.  First choose the glasses you like. Next select which lenses you would prefer from fashion to single vision and multifocal. Finally its just a case of entering your prescription if you need prescription eyeglasses

Edith Round Sunglasses (Black)*

I opted to try a pair of prescription sunglasses and chose the Edith Round sunglasses with a black frame. I found my pupillary distance (PD measurement) following the easy step by step instructions on the website. All you need is a ruler and a mirror to measure the distance between each pupil. I sent off my prescription and the sunglasses took around two weeks to arrive! 

These sunglasses look really stylish and I love the colour gradient on the lenses. Having to wear prescription glasses all the time it is important that they don't feel too heavy or uncomfortable. The frames feel very strong, like they are not going to break anytime soon but at the same time do not feel too heavy or overpowering on my face. I'm looking forward to getting some wear out of these beauties in the sunshine.

Treat yourself to a lovely new pair of glasses this Summer with the code GSHOT50 to enjoy 50% off eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses (sale frames excluded).

Why I Took A Break From Blogging

Hello! It has been so long since I last posted on my blog. Thank you so much for sticking with me! I thought I would just take some time to fill you in on where I have been and why I felt the need to take a break from blogging. 

Zero Blogging Motivation 

One of the main reason why I needed a break is because I majorly lost my blogging motivation. Blogging started to feel like a chore rather than something I enjoyed. I'm sure any other blogger out there can agree that when this starts to happen a break is well and truly needed. I decided I would spend time with Ava Mae and my family. 

Maternity Leave Ending 

My maternity ended at the beginning of July and I returned to work full time. This is why I am glad that I took some time out to spend with Ava Mae. I started to feel like blogging was taking me away from the precious time I had left with her on maternity leave and wanted to make the most of the last few months I had off work. Returning to work was hard and really tiring but luckily for me I get the school holidays off which means I will soon have six weeks to spend with my little squishy. Only going back for a few weeks before having the holidays off is great because it means I can steadily ease myself back into working and not feel overwhelmed with it all. I also feel like I have got routine back into my life. I thrive off routine and I really did not prepare myself for how hard maternity leave would be as my daily routine totally went out of the window! 

Mummy Friends 

I have always struggled with making and maintain friendships. I am such a shy person and get that awful anxiety which comes with it. Whilst on maternity leave I set myself a personal goal of making mummy friends. Luckily I found a local mums group and have met some lovely ladies who I now consider to be my friends! I no longer feel like a complete loner and it has helped so much with my confidence. 


If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed a few holiday snaps in the sun. I was luckily enough to get away for a break with my mum whilst on maternity leave. Sadly Ian had to stay home as he used all his holiday days when Ava Mae was born. It was hard to be away without my hubby but I had such a lovely time with my mum and Ava Mae, a much needed break! 

Upcoming Posts?

My last post was Ava Mae's One Month Update which is pretty crazy as she has now turned seven months! It will take me forever to catch up on her monthly updates if I do them individually so I plan on doing a few months together and then carrying on with her normal monthly updates after that. I also have a few reviews planned as well as some weaning posts as we have now started our weaning journey!

I feel a little wobbly and I'm sure my posts will be a little hit and miss while I get back into the swing of things but it feels great to finally be blogging again!
