My Very First Review - GlassesUSA

I have been given the priviledge  of my first product review by GlassesUSA.com !  I was soooo excited to try their product.... and I could really use some eyeglasses.... so I accepted immediately. Unfortunately I don't have a prescription  so I let Adrian pick out some glasses for himself and since he got the glasses it is only fitting that he also tell you his experience with the company and the product.   As for myself it has been such a pleasure working with the staff at GlassesUSA.com.... I'll be soooo glad to get my own prescription so that I  can order some eyeglasses for myself.  The quality, price and selection just can't be beat.... ordering is easy.... and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable should you need assistance.

But now here is what Adrian has to say about his own experience with GlassesUSA.com:
"I'm nearsighted. Prescription glasses have been part of my daily life since I
was in fourth grade. At age 17 I finally realized my vision had
deteriorated to the point that I needed corrective lenses 100% of the
time. Since then I have purchased eyeglasses through my optometrist, at
major mall outlets and at local eyeglass retailers with widely varying
degrees of quality, performance and retail price.
I was an early adopter of the internet. I wholeheartedly embraced
internet commerce in the mid nineties. I've purchased music, books,
electronics and clothing online-all with excellent results. In spite of
my embrace of internet commerce I have been hesitant to utilize the
internet for eyeglasses. This has been due to a desire to see how the
frames looked on my face and to evaluate the quality of the finished
product before I make a purchase decision. Time and again I visited
online glasses retailers enchanted by the low prices but I still
continued to purchase glasses through my usual outlets. That was before
the recession. I'm one of the lucky ones because I am still working full
time; albeit for a much lower salary.
Recently, I broke my newest pair of stylish prescription eyeglasses that I purchased
from a major mall retailer. I couldn't afford to replace them as the
warranty had expired. I ended up wearing a much more durable (and
cheaper) pair I purchased from a big box store optical department 12
years ago. At this point my wife told me to check out Glasses USA.com. I
figured I had nothing to lose so I typed the URL into my browser.
Immediately I was surprised to find a significant selection of stylish
eyeglass frames. Typically discount online eyeglass retailers have a
limited selection of generic looking frames that practically scream,
"CHEAP!"  The contemporary and stylish selection at Glasses USA.com was a
refreshing change. There was a considerable selection of well known
designer styles available at bargain prices as well.
The biggest objection for me has been that I want to see what the
eyeglasses look like on my face. GlassesUSA.com overcame this objection by
creating a way to do this virtually. Through the "Virtual Mirror"
feature I was able to upload a head shot from my webcam (you can also
use a digital picture) and methodically try each frame shape on to
ascertain the best shape and color for my face. I tried several styles
and settled on the contemporary semi-rimless style "Playground Black"
which sells for a base price of $39 with standard single vision lenses.
GlassesUSA.com gives you multiple lens and lens coating options at a very
competitive pricing. I found the thin lenses for an extra $49 and all
three coatings (scratch, UV and reflective) for an additional $17.85 to be an excellent value.
There were also options for Transitions lenses and a polarized
sunglasses lens option and a color tinted lens option. I
gathered my prescription information from my most recent eye exam and
sent in my order.
A few days later my new glasses arrived.  I unpacked them and gave them
a thorough examination. I determined the glasses felt substantial and
are clearly very good quality. The prescription was accurate and the
finished glasses fit my face perfectly and look sharp. GlassesUSA.com also
provided a high quality padded hard case and lens cloth with my order.
This unexpected extra completed an excellent experience. I highly
recommend GlassesUSA.com. The experience from beginning to end was smooth
and easy. I particularly liked the easy to navigate website, Virtual
Mirror feature and most of all the value. Thanks GlassesUSA.com!"

Hello Hello!!!!

How is everyone doing here in Bloggyland???

I'm so sorry that I haven't posted any updates lately.... I think I just got major burnout and felt pressured from all of those EC drops and Adgitize clicks and then there was the whole New Orleans fiasco and moving etc.... not to mention my addiction to games over on Facebook.

Well I'm happy to report that we moved into a new home on July 3rd and have settled in pretty well.  I have to thank our friends and family once again who stepped up to help us load and unload the truck.... what a job that was!!! I still have some unpacking to do but it will get done eventually...... mainly all of those books and candles and craft supplies that it took me forever to pack.    Adrian got back to working full time just in time for us to make the move.  There are of course things we miss about our old place.... but new things that we love about our new place as well.  It's just a tad smaller which is good because it's not too big and we still have plenty of space without feeling cramped up.  It has 3 nice sized decks that we now need outside furniture for.....  and a huge yard full of trees with ivy growing up them.... absolutely enchanting!  Adrian is only about 5 minutes from work and we're also closer to most of the places that we shop.   I do miss being close to the other places I loved to frequent..... and I miss my fireplace.....  and I really miss having my son and his little family just down the street.   But it's not like they're too far away to visit whenever we want... just not walking distance anymore.

So here are a few pics of our new home.... it's pretty.... quiet and peaceful here.... even though we're in the city limits it feels like we're in the country.

Steffie has just turned 5 on the 1st of this month and is doing well.   She had a lil bit of an adjustment period with the move but she is getting back to normal and accepting the changes.  I will post pics of her birthday soon.  I'm seriously contemplating painting her new room the colors of her old room.... it was soooo cute.... but do I really want to invest the time of painting on a rental home that we have no idea how long we will live in??? Maybe we'll be here for several years... maybe not... we can't really know at this point.  She now has 2 rooms by the way... her bedroom and a play room across the hall..... how's that for being a lucky lil girl???

This is what her old room looked like..... the white walls of her new room are just plain and boring..... 

That's it for now.... Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
