Specsy and I know it......

Hello!! When it comes to specs I've had a long running affair with the old face furniture. For as long as I can remember I've loved them, I used to borrow my friends at school just so I could wear them..... Just typing that now makes me realise what a complete weirdo I am!! Oh well, I digress. I've had to wear glasses for reading myself since I was about 11, and I actually look forward to my bi-yearly eye test to see if I can get some new frames...yeh like I said, weirdo... 

So when the guys at Select Specs contacted me to review a pair I jumped at the chance! Now I must admit I hadn't heard of them prior to this, but having checked out their range I was really impressed, and even more so at the fact that they say they're the Cheapest Prescription glasses in the world with prices starting at just £6 you knows I love a bargain!

And lets be honest for £6 I thought they were going to be a pile of you know what, so I ordered myself the cheapest pair I could find for £6. I decided to go for a dummy pair - so to speak - I have my reading glasses which I'm quite happy with, but I fancied a pair for fashion purposes, plus, those of you who know me know that I suffer quite often from eye infections and I find I heal quicker if I wear a pair of glasses as it stops me touching it (bad habit) and any dirt getting in to the eye. So I went for the Savannah 2249, a simple black rimmed, some might say "geek chic" style... 


When they arrived I was expecting them to be cheap plastic for the price, but they are a rubberised kind of plastic and look really nice, they are light weight and comfortable. They also came with a case and cleaning cloth...

For the £6 they cost you can also have them made to your prescription at no extra cost and the price also includes UV Coating, Anti Reflection and Scratch Resistant coating. P&P is £4 so the total price is £10, which is completely bargainous... Yes that's a word *ahem*.
