Style | The Perfect Glasses

Glasses can be the pits to pick out.  You head into a store packed with frames covering the walls and you are supposed to pick out a pair on the spot.  You don't get time to mull them over or see what they look like with different hairstyles (or no makeup... eeek!).  

When I found David Kind glasses I was so impressed with the process.  You pick out a few frames that spark your interest and you gravitate towards.  Then their professional stylists pick out three frames that they think would look fabulous on you.  The process really is so easy:

+ Upload a picture so the stylist can see your face/eye shape
+ Fill out a short questionnaire about what you do and don't like- color, shape, etc
+ Their stylist will match you with the 3 frames they think would compliment your face

The awesome part is that they ship you the frames and you get 6 days to try the glasses and see which pair you like the best.  Once you decide, you fill out a little card and ship them back.  Your glasses are then made and shipped to you.  You don't even have to leave your house (except to go to the mailbox!).

One of the first things I noticed when I picked up the frames was how sturdy and substantial they felt.  That is kind of important when you are being mauled by four kiddos all day long. 

Your glasses arrive in this case with all of the frames tucked neatly inside.  Try them on. Wear them for a day or two. Pick your frame. And enjoy!  It really is that easy.

Home | Out With the Old Lights

We are slowly making updates to our outdated 90's ranch.  This home is full of yellow/orange oak, metal blinds, heavily spackled walls, and stained, off-white carpet. Although, we can't change the knock-down on the walls we are taking small bites at the rest of the home.  Painting has really helped lighten up this place and give it a fresh, clean feel, but there's so much more to tackle.

I had already updated the light over the kitchen table and our foyer lights, but the can lights in the kitchen were really messing up the aesthetic.  I didn't know how I would change the lights without needing an electrician to come and do it for me, which isn't really in our reno budget, so I was thrilled when I stumbled across Worth Home Products.  They provide instant pendant lights and let me tell you... they are so easy to install!

Take a look and make sure you check out the discount at the bottom of this post and a few "before" pictures!

To install these fixtures, you unscrew the can light bulb and screw in the pendant- that's it!  They look nice and give it the rustic-industrial feel I was going for.  I replaced one can light over our kitchen sink with this fixture and our bar top lights were replaced with this fixture which is a little less substantial compared to the kitchen sink fixture.  

 These three fixtures made such a difference to our kitchen space and I have had so many people ask about them, so I wanted to blog the details for everyone.  If you are wanting to make quick updates to your space without going overboard- check out these lights!!!

I'm excited to share a sweet deal with you all!  If you are wanting to purchase a few fixtures from Worth Home Products I have a discount to pass along.  When you call (713-660-0025) and order over the phone and mention The Quick Journey blog you will get a 15% discount on all of their products!!!  So run fast and grab this great deal!  If you have any questions, feel free to shoot them my way and I will answer them as best as I can!
