Giveaway | Win a Pair of London Retro Prescription Glasses or Sunglasses

London Retro giveaway
I’m so pleased to tell you all I’ve teamed up with eyewear brand MyOptique to bring you an international giveaway to win a pair of glasses or sunglasses! The prize is a pair of London Retro glasses (they can be prescription if you wish) or sunglasses of your choice, worth £79.

London Retro’s latest eyewear collection takes its inspiration from one of London’s most iconic landmarks, the London Underground. Available exclusively from, each new style is named after an iconic London tube line or station. The retro shapes combined with key colour and fabrication trends give them a very modern look – matt finishes and muted pinks are introduced for the first time. Together with other popular styles already in the range you might find it hard to make a decision – especially as most of them come in different colours. Here’s just a few of the 34 styles in the range that I love:

London Retro glasses styles

1. Eliza   2. Nancy   3. Bailey   4. Babs   5. Central   6. Circle

I love the names of the styles – they’re all “London” names of people, places or characters (Eliza from My Fair Lady, David Bailey, the Central Line on the Underground, etc.). I’d really wanted some heavy framed glasses for a while, so chose the Dodger frames in black (Artful Dodger/Oliver Twist…?) and I couldn’t be more pleased with them. I require glasses for reading and computer work, so I wear them for most of my working day, and they’re super comfortable and lightweight (despite the heavy frame). The delivery from My Optique was super quick and well packaged – they come with a really smart but tough glasses case and scratch-resistant and anti-reflective lenses as standard (handy for someone as accident prone as me).

The giveaway is open internationally and ends on 25 March – what are you waiting for? Good luck!
