GIVEAWAY: Fetch Eyewear!

About a year ago, minor tragedy struck my life when I left my sunglasses on an airplane. For most people, this might not qualify as a formative, watershed moment—the kind that’s likely to define the next chapter of their lives—but for me, it was basically a small death. I mourned those glasses. There was my life before the glasses (confusion, discomfort), my life with the glasses (joy, confidence, enjoying sunny days), and then there was my life after the glasses (misery, overwhelming sadness, general gloom, hatred of the sun and daylight). It was a Big Deal.

As I’ve mentioned before, I have the sort of face that just rejects all types of eyewear. My head is somewhere between child-sized and lady-sized, and something about the arrangement of my facial features just doesn’t agree with cute accessories. Forget drugstore glasses or even a whole Sunglasses Hut. So imagine my joy when I found an amazing pair of glasses from one of my amazing sponsors, Fetch Eyewear, last fall (the Baxter in OnyxFade), and my double joy when they asked if I’d like to try out their sunglasses this summer! And a pair for Max, too! Maybe this summer wouldn’t be full of misery and regret, after all!

I quickly took them up on it, and we decided to do the Try at Home feature, where Fetch will send you six pairs of your choice at no charge, you can pick your favorite, send them all back and quickly get your favorite sent to you in the mail! Simple, easy, doesn’t require me to leave my home—I love all of these things.

Isn’t that packaging adorable? It took Max and I about five seconds to break into the boxes and excitedly fight for space in front of the mirror to try them all on. The options are just so good!

The other thing I love about Fetch, by the way, is that they’re an awesome company. The glasses are already really affordable, and then on top of providing super stylish, great quality glasses at a great price, they go ahead and donate 100% of their profits to The Pixie Project, which works tirelessly with county shelters to rescue animals and give them another shot at finding a home. How amazing is that? I just love them. I love them for their cute glasses and for their love of cute animals. And I didn’t even mention the lifetime warranty on the frames. I mean, there is literally nothing not to like. Not. A. Thing.

Max and I and the kids tooled around the Hudson River Valley with Anna and Evan this weekend, and took the opportunity to take our new glasses for a spin with this impromptu and candid (totally planned, very posed) high fashion photoshoot!

Success! They work! We love them! Honestly, I love them more than my lost pair of wonderful glasses that I thought I would mourn forever. Fetch Eyewear has helped me overcome emotional turmoil and find my way to the other side, while protecting my eyes from harmful UV-rays and my summer get-up from being sunglass-less. I literally could ask for no more. Bring on this summer thing, I’m ready for it.

Max chose the Dash in Onyx (which look quite dashing on him, if I do say so myself) and I chose the Milo in Ether (which Max’s sister told me made me look like Anne Sullivan, which I’m 100% OK with).

GIVEAWAY: Fetch Eyewear!

So the giveaway last week was pretty fun, yeah? What do you say we do another one today? And next Monday, too? It’s totally free stuff month on Manhattan Nest and it’s awesome because you could get in on that with some seriously awesome swag from my seriously awesome sponsors.

A little while ago, I bought my first pair of glasses and started wearing them around all the time. I don’t altogether need glasses, but I have a weak prescription for distance, so basically I see like a superhero when I wear them. Mostly, I’ll admit that I just like wearing glasses because they make me feel smarter, more competent, and like I’m wearing a costume. Who do I want to be today? My glasses will tell me.

So when an amazing little Portland, OR-based company called Fetch Eyewear e-mailed me out of the blue and asked if I might like to try out a pair of their frames, I took them up on it.

Fetch Eyewear is such a cool company because not only do they make super awesome, super affordable glasses, they also give all of their profits to the Pixie Project in support of animal rescue and adoption. Seriously. Just by buying and wearing around a pair of great glasses, you get to help save the lives of dogs like mine and help them find homes. Does it get any better than that?

No it does not.

Picking a pair of glasses is also fun and easy with the Try at Home feature, where you get to pick 6 pairs of glasses, try them out for a week, then send them back to Fetch and order your favorite pair. So cool. I ended up with a pair of Baxter frames and it’s love. I love these glasses. I guess they’re my “artsy academic” look, and I haven’t taken them off for weeks. The quality is excellent, I think they fit my face well, and I love the shape. Also, I get compliments. Like, actual human people telling me that something on my face looks nice. That feels good.

For serious, these glasses are wonderful. Just look at those jolly people being so happy in their glasses. They are all seriously very thrilled and only one of them is holding a cute dog. So.
