A giveaway with MyOptique & London Retro glasses!

9 January 2014

I'm not a huge accessories (or fashion for that matter) kind of girl. I have my favourite jewellery pieces (hello diamond earrings) which I wear most days but all of the other "accessory stuff" I don't bother with.

Glasses however, they're my favourite.

Always have been. Always will be.

So when MyOptique got in contact with me and asked if I would like to review a pair of London Retro glasses I don't think I've ever replied to an email faster! I'd been on the scout for a third pair of glasses for a while already and kept seeing the gorgeous brand London Retro creep up all over the place so I took this as a sign from the Universe that it was meant to be. Awesome glasses be mine!

After scouting through their collection a few times I decided that I'd go for something a little more "out there". A statement pair as it were, for those days I feel like being a little fancier (which turns out to be quite a lot of the time actually).

It was a really close call as there are so many gorgeous frames to choose from, but in the end I couldn't resist the BABS style. A nod to the style worn by Marilyn Munroe but with a gorgeous gold inlay across the top to show off the curve of the frame. I think they're perfect.

All frames are £79, come with a gorgeous glasses case, cleaning cloth and free scratch resistant and anti-reflective lenses. £79 for a pair of sturdy and quirky frames? Bargain. If you are worried about shopping online don't be, shipping to the UK is free and if you don't like your frames, or they don't fit snug like a bug, MyOptique will happily exchange or refund your purchase! Takes the edge off huh?

In order to perk this blog up on this wet and rainy Thursday, MyOptique are offering one Our Little Balham Life reader a pair of London Retro frames of their own!!

If you're like me and have terrible eye sight you can have them to fit any prescription, or if you would rather have them without a prescription or as glasses that's totally fine too.

In order to win, comment below which London Retro frames you would love to win, then head over to over to MyOptique’s Facebook page, ‘Like’ and pop a comment on their FB wall saying "Our Little Balham Life's giveaway!".

I'll choose a winner a week from today and will announce it here at the bottom of the post and via my twitter and facebook page.

One last thing before I go... wanna see a picture of the glasses in all their glory AND me and my sister looking super sexy at the same time?

Well today is your day...

Thanks Dad for making us face and look straight into the sun for these pictures. Turned out great huh?

And the winner of this gorgeous MyOptique giveaway, chosen by the super handy is Harriet Venn, congratulations!
I will be in contact via email :)
