Review and Giveaway - Courtesy of READING GLASSES SHOPPER!!

I don't know about the rest of you busy readers but sometimes my eyes need help!! Of course it is all the reading and NOT my age! ;D

Haley from Reading Glasses Shopper (an Affordable Style company) was nice to offer me a pair of reading glasses to review for hosting a giveaway!!  The company sells reading glasses, reading sun glasses, and bi-focals at great prices - nothing over $20. You can check out the current sale plus there is free shipping on orders over $30.00!

There is a wide selection and since I have narrow eyes I choose The Southport which appeared to be good for a smaller face.  I was pleasantly surprised when I received the glasses to discover the nice packaging with wooden case and a pen! There is a picture at the link for the Southport but here are my pictures:

The glasses are attractive and very sturdy but not heavy.  I have been using them for about three weeks now and the hinges are still nicely snug making me feel they will be dependable for some time! 
I choose magnification of +1.75 but there is a wide range to choose what is best to help your eyes.

Not all the glasses come with a case but The Dot, for example, comes with a soft carrying pouch, and the Dakota comes with a small metal case.

I had not priced glasses recently so imagine my surprise when I walked into a local department store this past weekend and discovered that most of the reading glasses were $17.00 and up! And the selection did not seem at all as nice as the Southport!!

The Company has recently launched a great reading glasses glossary and eye health glossary you might be interested in, too. Check out the links - lots of interesting data there!

So if you can use a pair of reading glasses for yourself or a friend, follow the entry instructions for a chance to WIN!
