TIJN Blue-Screen Glasses

Hello Readers & Friends,

Today I'm sharing something a little different. I've worked with TIJN eyewear and homeware a few times before, because I like having lots different style glasses to suit my outfits. My eye problems involve light, not vision, so I don't have a normal prescription and the only prescription glasses I have are super ugly and I only use for dark-light driving. So most of the time if you ever see me in glasses, they're actually clear. (I'm such a faker.)

TIJN contacted me recently because they have a new range called Orange by TIJN. They are basically blue-light blocking lenses, which means that when you are using a screen for a long time, they block out the unnatural blue light that screens emit to make it easier on your eyes. I JUMPED at the chance to try some of their glasses out because I struggle with terrible migraines, and always have to set my laptop to night-light setting to eradicate the blue light anyway.

If working on a computer all day gives you a headache or makes your eyes hurt, I really, really recommend trying some blue light-blocking glasses. These are also super inexpensive options. On their website it looks like they have more expensive frame versions, but the ones I have are available on the company Amazon account where they're only about £17. 

This is the first pair I bought. It's these frames in the colour Tortoise. I like oversized frames so these are great for me, and I really like the square shape. 

 The second pair (below) I got are these frames in the colour Leopard. These are a little more bold as they are white, and stand out more. I'll save these for days when my outfit is very minimalist to balance the look out.

They actually sent me a third pair in the wrong colour - a smaller, rounder pair in the Tortoise shade.  I haven't photographed myself wearing these because I've decided to do a giveaway for them over on my Instagram, so if you want to win them then follow me over there and I'll be announcing it in the next couple of days. I don't need three pairs, I'll be living in these two for the foreseeable future and waving goodbye to my headaches! I didn't want to put the third pair on in case I got them dirty, so you'll be getting a brand new and boxed pair.

These glasses were kindly gifted to me by TIJN but I have not been paid for this post, nor have I been asked to host the giveaway. All opinions are my own.

Love, C x
