Friday giveaway: my Bonlook glasses

Posted on September 28th, 2012

If I had a dime for every time someone asks me where I got my glasses from…I’d have enough to shout Jo (who has to field such questions via Twitter, Facebook and this blog) dinner somewhere posh. The answer to the question, to help things out, is this: Bonlook, an online site where you enter your specs (prescription details) and they send you your…specs. And the style I’m wearing here: Urban Dandy.

 After getting a curiously large number of requests from Australia for Urban Dandies, Bonlook got in touch and offered to create a page where you can buy a pair of my glasses direct. (Just click on ‘my glasses‘ to order!)

Plus today they’re giving away:

one pair of cool glasses, worth $US99. The giveaway is open to all. To enter:

  • sign up to the Bonlook newsletter here
  • leave the name of the style of glasses you’d like to win on this blog post
  • like my facebook page (if you’re already a fan, you’re still eligible)

The giveaway closes Friday Oct 5.

Some other bits to know:

BonLook only offers Carbon Neutral Shipping

They also support the ChildSight® program in New York – for every pair of glasses sold, one child gets access to free vision care and glasses.

Also, all proceeds from the sales of BonLook’s opera glasses are donated to the Desert Flower Foundation, an organization that strives to put an end to female genital mutilation.

    I think your beauty radiates from the inside out. That being said, your honey-tortoise glasses look pretty darn cool, too! I’m not on facebook– hope that I can still qualify as an entry.

    Wow Sarah this is my first time entering one of your Friday give-aways & I have never been more desperate to win! Sat on my glasses recently, ghetto booty fail! :( & as every spare cent is going towards our partner visa fund to allow me to remain in my beloved Australia, having to drive with one cracked lens through the Melbournian drizzle is not funtimes! SO, although i’m uber tempted to also go for your style as you pull off the Urban Dandies so nerdhotly, if i were to win i think my style is much more DRINK THE KOOL AID in BROWN! http://www.bonlook.com/product/drink-kool-aid-brown
