How To Measure Eyeglasses

How To Measure Eyeglasses Infographic

I've been wearing prescription eyeglasses since the third grade. Which I don't care what anyone says, I blame my need to sit three inches from the television. There's nothing like literally trying to be in the action of Saturday morning cartoons.

Anyway, recently my prescription changed, I hate when that happens. The only silver lining is the chance to buy cute new frames. Proud to say, I never get the overpriced ones from the Doctor's office. I like my eyeglasses to cost less than my mortgage, thank you! I'm a fan of Zenni Optical's affordable glasses and bought the frames pictured.

I'm happy about my choices. Especially since, I've had my share of failed glasses. It took me years to figure out what works best for my face. If you need help figuring out which frames compliment you. The infographic below is an easy-to-read guide for finding your frame measurements

CottonBin Swap Clothes Online

Cottonbin allows you to swap clothes online with others

CottonBin is a new online destination that allows you to swap your gently worn or new clothes for someone else's. Perfect for those impulse purchases we've wore once before sticking in the back of our closet for eternity. CottonBin gives you a unique alternative if you don't feel like selling or donating. As an avid giver to Goodwill, I decided to change it up and give CottonBin a go.

The CottonBin sign up process was easy, just don't forget to order your first swap kit. This kit (pictured below) comes with a shipping bag, prepaid label to ship back to CottonBin for free, and a shipment inventory card to list your items. They have a "what we accept" page to see if your items fit the bill for being swapped. If by any chance your items don't meet the criteria they'll be donated, which is fine, since that's what I would have done anyway.

I created this quick video to showcase how easy the process is with your swap kit!

Just sent out my package, so I'll update this post with the next steps of the process in a few weeks. I'm excited to get my CottonBin points to start swapping. Stay tuned!

Angara, is the jewelry gemstone destination for everything that sparkles: Diamonds, Sapphires, Rubies, Emeralds and Tanzanites. Honestly, I can't pick a favorite I want them all. However, this post isn't about the ladies, it's about the overlooked importance of men's wedding bands. I'm not getting married, but some of my close friends are so I'm witnessing a lot of wedding preparation. I've noticed, the bride-to-be has a large variety when it comes to wedding rings, while the fiancee is left with few options.
