Cheers to 2 Years | & JINS Eyewear Giveaway!!!

Hi folks :) Today marks a special day for me... it's my blog's 2nd birthday!! 

This blog came into existence because I followed my heart and fought through my fears of starting something that I knew I would need to devote so much of my time and energy to. It still exists now because my passion for content creation has only grown stronger since, and because of all of YOU - many who've shown me so much love and encouragement, who've inspired me, and some who I've even become good friends with through this journey. :)

As a heartfelt thank you, I'm gifting one reader a free pair of optical glasses or sunglasses from JINS Eyewear (simple giveaway steps at the end of this post)!

One of the things I get so much joy out of is sharing my latest style finds with all of you. I say this because I follow a handful of style bloggers myself, who I look to for style inspiration, and I get so excited and appreciate when they share their latest finds. They take at least some of the guess work out for me when they show and talk about a tried-and-true product or style piece. Hoping that you get a similar feeling when I share my finds here with you! :) Today I'm sharing a piece that I've been wearing every night (and sometimes during the day) to help me see more clearly while still feeling stylish - my JINS glasses!

My first JINS Eyewear store experience in San Francisco's Union Square did not disappoint. There were so many styles to choose from for both optical eyewear and sunglasses, which they make for you on the spot, WITHIN 30 MINUTES, once you've selected one (or two, or three)! In the past, at other eyewear stores, it'd usually take at least a week for my glasses to be made, so this was a complete game-changing experience for me.

I spent some time trying out a few optical glasses and sunglasses from their huge selection. I love that there were so many mirrors at the store - they made it very convenient to try on each pair, on-the-spot. Not to mention, the store was super clean and spacious, and the eyewear pieces are so affordable (around $50-$150 including both lenses!).

I decided on the lightweight LMF-15A-301 style in the color 'tortoise alloy' from the 3 pairs that I liked. On the site, it sometimes tells you which face type(s) the frames are suited for (i.e. square, heart, etc.), which I highly appreciate, since not all frames are well-suited for every face type. I called my optometrist and he quickly faxed over my prescription to the JINS store, waited 30 minutes for my first pair of JINS glasses to be made, had them fitted for my face, and walked out a happy customer :)

Sharing a few of my other JINS Eyewear favorites below (I may be returning back for some of these in the future)! JINS Eyewear was nice enough to offer a 10% off code* for me to share with you! This expires on 7/31/17 at 11:59pm PT, so make sure you take advantage of it soon on their site!
