A Guide for Four Eyes

A Guide for Four Eyes

Today I am letting a secret out of the bag. I order all of my prescription eye glasses online! Some for playtime, some to be professional and others just because! I let loose when it comes to purchasing eye glasses  simply because I get them all for under $100.

Of course I could never get prescription eye wear at that cost locally. I once spent $500 on prescription eye glasses alone and no it wasn’t name brand and no this did not include the doctors visit!

So naturally when my glasses took a turn for the worse I knew I had to seek elsewhere.

If you are a four eye like me then you’d like what I stumbled upon. Here’s my top three go to prescription glasses websites. I use them because the platform is easy to use, prices are right, selection is awesome and the warranty policy is amazing!

  1. ZenniOptical.com – Here you can upload your picture and try on glasses virtually  to get a feel of how you will look. This was one of the only sites I found that you needed to know you Pupillary distance or PD. PD measures the space between the pupils of your eyes. There are infographics on the website that help you to measure this. You can find more info on this here. Once you order you receive a kit inclusive of a case, wipes and a ruler to measure PD for future orders.
  2. Coastal.com – I got my favorite glasses from Coastal. It was lightweight and perfect for everyday wear. I was super bummed out when hubby accidentally sat on it and twisted the frame. Luckily it was affordable and so I just ordered another! This site also has the option of uploading a picture and trying on the glasses. I especially loved that they had photos in the review comments of real customers with the glasses I wanted.Coastal offers the name Brands like Calvin Klein and Derek Cardigan among other top players. The eye wear came with a case and a spray for cleaning purposes.
  3. Eyebuydirect.com – This site is one of my new favorites! I stumbled upon EBD after I experienced the joys of Coastal and Zenni. I really do order too many glasses! I fell in love with the quality, selection and of course the price! My orders all came with a mini screw driver kit and in a super cool box! EBD also offered the upload tool. All glasses came with scratch resistant coating.

So now that you know where to go how do you order you may ask? Its really not as hard as you think. Once you find the eye wear that you want you just follow the directions for each site.  Here’s a real quick and easy guide to get you started.

GET STARTED

Most just ask you to fill in your prescription information. The information requested on screen is almost as identical as it is on your prescription. They do offer additional items for example added protection for using computers and other digital products, automatic tinting, scratch resistant lens, glare resistant, I mean the options are endless. But be careful they do add up!

I know I’ve been talking about glasses but all of these sites offer prescription contacts as well! I just have a thing about sticking something in my eye!

If you order glasses online what are your go to sites? Happy Searching and Seeing (literally).

Till next time…

A Slice of Little Caesar

A Slice of Little Caesar

What started out as a routine Saturday filled with paying bills and grocery shopping turned into a slice of fun. I am still not sure if it was a grand opening but Little Caesars sure turned up. This stop wasn’t planned at all, in fact I had no idea they were even open.

The popular pizza brand Little Caesar has made its way to the sunny isle of the Bahamas, Nassau to be specific. Tucked  away  just between The Nassau Guardian and Xtra Value food store you’ll find Hot – N – Ready pizzas starting at only $7!

Ok first things first, the food. I know you want to know about the food! Despite the slogan, no pizza was ready upon my arrival. But, if this was indeed a Grand Opening I will give these guys the benefit of the doubt, they must have been slammed with customers and I completely understood. The attendant was more than pleasant and promised me a Hot – N – Ready pepperoni pizza in 10-15 minutes or less.

The time was easily spent. Unbeknownst to me a mini fair was going on right outside that was hidden away from the street entrance. This distraction would more than help me to kill time (clever, clever Little Caesar’s).

Equipped with balloon animals, bounce house, popcorn, snow cones, party bags and yes the Little Caesar Mascot, my kids were more than entertained. At one point I was so engaged we almost forgot about the pizza, ALMOST.

So, how was it? Well worth all the freebies I got and then some. Oh, yea I forgot to mention all those items above were free!

The pizza was eight slices of cheesy pepperoni  goodness. I know what you’re saying, oh gosh another pizza franchise. But the pizza is ready, you know almost like drive thru but you walk in and supposedly walk right back out, so no wait time, plus did I mention it tasted great?

Most grand openings are a huge mess. You know long lines, uneducated staff, sometimes even burnt food but Little Caesars gets my $7, but then again I am still not sure it was a grand opening.

Have you tried it yet? Whats your favorite pizza?

Till next…

The Easter Break – Camp and Holiday Fun

The Easter Break – Camp and Holiday Fun

I received a letter from both Navy and Dilly’s school reminding me that Easter Break was fast approaching. I instantly got excited! No more uniforms to iron, no more bags to pack and I can finally sleep a few minutes later because there will be no traffic!!

Yay right?!, Wrong! I instantly went into a panic because now I need a babysitter! For about a week in half, maybe two, I don’t know I threw the note somewhere, I need someone to make sure these kids don’t starve and burn down the house.

I know other parents out there share my plea. It’s a never ending cycle. I pay school fee then I pay babysitters. Grammy’s now a days still work and if they don’t, they have plans.. Go ahead ask your mom I betcha she has something to do!

So now what? I thought about taking a sabbatical but couldn’t quite find a legit reason. Then I thought I’d just bring them to work hide them under my desk and feed them crackers in exchange for complete silence. I thought about the kinds of kids I have and instantly knew that won’t work, so now plan C.

Easter Camp!! The Holy Grail has surfaced! I managed to list a few below for you. If interested just click photo and it will lead you to the camp of your dreams, or not. Entirely up to you!

Quick Guide: Balancing Your Day Job + Side Hustle

Quick Guide: Balancing Your Day Job + Side Hustle

Some of the most successful people in this world have more than one source of income, so when I see persons with a day job and a side hustle I applaud them! It’s not every day you encounter a BOSS.

I recently attended a brunch where I was surrounded by awesome females like myself who were not only rocking their #girlboss status but were also killing it as FEMPRENUERS. 

I must say some days it can get a bit hectic juggling it all but  there are three die hard rules I follow that helps me keep my head above water and I can’t swim well at all so I need these!

1.  In order to keep some order during my work life it is important to set what goals I plan to achieve. Whether it be for the month, the week or just for one day, having a vision is key to help give you that “tunnel vision”. Maybe this week you want to start posting more on Social Media or order some new products for your store. Whatever it maybe setting a goal helps to put those thoughts in motion!

2. Now that you have your goals all mapped out it’s time to execute! No sense in having goals if you don’t plan on actually doing it. So you want to post on Social Media, great! Now when are you going to do it? Scheduling actual days and times of bringing your creative ideas into fruition is a great way to balance your day job without taking away from “The Mans” time. Maybe waking up early before heading to work or completing a few tasks during your lunch break. There’s no better time than now so, Schedule, Schedule and more Schedule.

 

3.  Most days I just want to go home and watch binge watch Greenleaf on Netflix I lose sight of my goals and throw my schedule right out of the window. It’s natural to feel the need to slack off, lose motivation and even get discouraged. Surround yourself with like minded people who share similar goals and interest like you to keep motivated. Joining groups and networking with persons that have the same ambitions and goals like me help make the process much easier. It also creates and opens a whole new world of opportunities while making new friends.

 

Well there you have it! I wish you all much success and maybe, just maybe one day you won’t be juggling that day job anymore ;).

Let me know how you manage it all! Maybe I can learn a thing or two!

Till next time…

XOXO
