Halloween Costumes for Glasses Wearers

We are celebrating the ghoulish, ghostly and spooky time of year – Halloween. How about getting some new glasses for the upcoming season? Just because the sun isn’t tanning your pale limbs, doesn’t mean it’s any less powerful. In fact, low lying sun can be one of the brightest kinds, and you’ll still need some on trend shades to make sure you look good driving!

Top 3 Budget Frames for Fashion

Glasses can be expensive, with high end designer frames going from around £100 upwards but they can be a great investment if you heavily rely on glasses. However, for those of you as clumsy or as fussy as I am, then budget frames can be the way forward because cheaper frames can easily be replaced which is a huge bonus. I am also an avid fashion lover so my style changes and evolves constantly. I would therefore love to have the option to own a frame for every outfit and buying numerous budget frames allows me to achieve that.

Here is my pick of the top 3 most fashion forward frames that also
