Finally, An Opportunity To Wear Sunglasses

Today has been brilliant. The sun shone for most of the day and we actually sat on the beach without hoodies.

We brunched at GJs pancake bar, (a favourite from when we were here two years ago), and then stayed on Woolacombe beach until late afternoon.

I have got some new sunglasses and I’m thrilled with them. It always comes as a surprise to my friends that as an optometrist by profession, (though I haven’t practised since taking a career break to raise my children a few years ago), and as a lover of all accessories, I had until I got these a matter of weeks ago, only one pair of sunglasses.

These ones are by Tommy Hilfiger at Specsavers.

I visited the Leeds branch to choose them, (Specsavers are all franchises), and I was looked after by Aga, a charming Polish optical assistant.

The benefit of going to an opticians for sunglasses is that they will be adjusted to fit correctly. Mine needed a little adjustment on the sides to ensure the bend met my ear at the right place.
I don’t need prescription lenses but many many frames in Specsavers can be glazed with prescription sunglass lenses, ideal for driving or reading on holiday.

 I love the teal and cream sides.

 Because it was such a glorious evening, we decided to go to our favourite Barricane Beach Cafe for another Al Fresco Sri-Lankan curry supper.

I’m definitely a glass half full girl, but either way, it still needs filling up, does it not?

My sunglasses were a gift from Specsavers. All opinions are 100% honest and all content is my own.
