Mother's Day Gift Guide: Review & Giveaway

     I don't wear prescription glasses at this time.  I say that because as a kid I did wear them for a short time.  At this time the only glasses I wear are sunglasses.  Sunglasses are a must here in Arizona as they are in most places.  Who doesn't need a pair of sunglasses?  I know that most if not all moms do!  That is why when I was offered a review and giveaway from I had to say yes.

     Developed by eye doctors, can offer an inexpensive way for people to get high quality finished prescription and non prescription glasses.  Due to their high volume they are able to offer glasses at a high discount. has been in business for 11 years.  With every order you get 100% UV Protection, scratch resistant coating, 100% quality guarantee, next day shipping and more.  They have a wide variety of metal and plastic eyeglasses

     I was given a code to shop for my review.  I immediately went to women's sunglasses.  I often get somewhat cheap sunglasses since I go through them so quickly.  They always seem to break, probably because I get the cheaper ones.  Anyway, I began looking and found so many great styles.  I think the hardest thing was finding glasses and being sure I'd like the way they look on my face.  I am pretty picky about the style of sunglasses.  I always feel like I have bug eyes in many sunglasses.  I found a pair that stuck out to me, but kept looking.  Some how I kept coming back to the same pair.  So I finally decided to get them.  I got the Katie glasses in Burgundy.  These glasses came in 3 different colors.  I then followed the steps to choose the lenses next.  Once you choose your type of lens then  you put in your prescription number.  If your like me and don't need a prescription and just want sun glasses then there is a line that tells you what to put in the boxes.  Makes it real easy its right above the boxes.  Next you get to choose how you want your glasses tinted.  There are different types of tinting for different prices.  And last you get to pick  your color of tint, there were 7 colors to choose from.  After I made all my choices I checked out and waited.

     Lucky I didn't have to wait long.  My glasses showed up just a few days later.  I was very happy with the results.  Along with the glasses I ordered I received a soft material pouch, a hard case, and an eye glass kit.  The kit included a micro fiber lens cleaning cloth and a small key chain eye glass screwdriver.  I was a little worried that I would not like the fit since I didn't get to try them on.  But I actually do love them.  They are perfect.  I love the accessories that came with them.  I wear my sunglasses daily.  Although when I am at the schools I tend to go back to my old glasses because I don't want these to break.  But lucky if they do I know I can always find cheap sunglasses at is American made and even better they ship to any and all those serving our country for free no matter where they are!  Do you know a mom that could use a pair of discount glasses?  Prescription or sunglasses, either way?  Well, I have a coupon code for all those interested.  Just use the code ARIZ12 for 10% off your order at
