Update Your Summer Eye Wear and SAVE with TimeToShade {A Sizzlin' Summer Essentials Review + Coupon Code}

**I received complimentary eye wear from TimeToShade for consideration of this post. All thoughts and opinions expressed are 100% my own.

Summer is here...have you updated your summer wardrobe yet?

Sundresses, cute sandals, tank tops galore...whatever it takes to beat the summer sun while still looking absolutely fabulous!

For those of us that wear glasses, it can be a great time to also update the most important fashion accessory! After all, we wear them each and every day...so why shouldn't they be every bit as cute as the rest of our summer look!? Still, replacing our glasses for a season can be quite the expense! I remember several years back, I found myself at the eye doctor's in need of a new pair. Being frugal, I of course headed to the discount frames first, but found nothing that looked right to me. Again, these are something that I knew I had to wear daily and I wanted them to look okay. And so, I searched and searched...and searched some more. I finally ended up with a pair of designer glasses that even with my insurance and various other discounts they offered ended up being well over $200!

Yikes, needless to say my frugal self was not a fan of that. In fact, I wore those glasses for YEARS after because I just couldn't stand the thought of having to pay for a replacement. What other option did I have but to head to an eye doctor for my next pair? Thankfully these days, buying new glasses has never been more budget friendly thanks to online shopping!

I was recently given the chance to try out a new to me online glasses shop to share with all of you: TimeToShade.

So, how was my experience?

I am not new to shopping for glasses online but I have found that some retailers are easier to navigate than others. TidetoShade was very easy to figure out... simply choose the frames desired from their wide variety of options and customize with your prescription and any other customization options desired such as tints, etc. They arrived about a week or so later, and I absolutely loved them. The quality was great, the shipping was fast and the styles were absolutely fantastic.

But buying glasses online... isn't that risky?

I know, I know the first time I ordered glasses online I was apprehensive too. What if I got them in and hated the way they looked on me? It can certainly carry that risk, BUT I suggest heading to a local eyeglasses retailer and trying on various styles BEFORE ordering online. This will give you an idea on what styles, colors and sizes look best on you before you head online to make your purchase.

In addition, TimeToShade has a pretty fantastic return policy considering these are custom made prescription glasses. For Rx and other custom eyewear (including custom tint, blue light blocking, etc.), you have 10 days to initiate a return. If you made a mistake during the order or simply didn't like the glasses, you can return for a 50% refund (excluding shipping), or for a one-time-use 100% store credit (excluding shipping). SHIPPING CHARGES WILL NOT BE REFUNDED. Pretty great, right?

Sounds good... but what sets TimeToShade apart from other online retailers?

There are a few reasons that I really enjoyed ordering from TimeToShade. First and foremost, the quality! They are a smaller company who put their focus on lower costs, without sacrificing the quality in doing so. All of their prescription lenses come standard with a thin lens made from durable polycarbonate, which include anti-glare and scratch resistant coating (often costing extra elsewhere). To give you an idea, that they might charge $29 for at TimeToShade can be found for $95+ at other online glasses retailers. They also offer the best pricing on anything needed to make your glasses custom to your needs-blue lights lens, polarized, mirrored, multi-focal, etc!

That's not the only thing that sets them apart though. The lenses are all also cut and assembled in the US--- New York City to be exact. While there might be other retailers that have inexpensive glasses as well, many ship from overseas. This can lead to QUITE the wait! Sometimes, we don't have that time to wait! From the time of my order to the date of arrival I believe these came in less than two weeks! Not much of a wait at all compared to other options.

They also offer DESIGNER glasses at amazing prices too--- carrying brands like Prada, Marc Jacobs, Oakley, Ray-Ban and so many more! Still without breaking the bank!

And right now you can save even more with a free upgrade to tint on any pair of glasses with the exclusive coupon code RANDIKAYE. This makes ANY pair of glasses into sunglasses, TRULY the must have summer essential for every glasses wearer. Head on over to TimeToShade to grab your new summer must have today!

  1. This sounds like a great place to buy glasses. They seem to have a very nice selection to choose from. My daughter wears glasses, so I'll have to tell her about this!
