Frame of the Month 2014: August


The fashion analysts and glasses experts for eyebuddy were very excited this month in the selection of frame of the month for August this year. We finally decided to nominate the CA6190 Carrera (81F BLUE STRP) frame as the winner of our Frame of the Month for August, 2014. We know this frame will not appeal to everyone due largely to it's unusual colour choices but we will explain why we couldn't afford not to make this our frame of the month choice.

For such a large frame size at 54mm x 16mm, it is a very light and comfortable frame. The CA6190 Carrera glasses are very smooth and will glide itself into a comfortable fit around the head and ears. At eyebuddy, we're very fond of glasses with no external nose pads for many reasons and this frame ticks that box. The Carrera spectacle sits comfortably on the nose with the frame-built nose sections that disperse the pressure evenly across the nose where contact is made.

Blue and brown are colours that generally don't mix well, but the CA6190 Carrera frame has done well with this combination. Some frames have warm colours such as yellow and red, some frames opt for polar opposites such as white and black, but blue and brown are an unusual combination of colours. We firmly believe that people who seek uniqueness and change will be delighted by this frame. This frame is suitable for all occasions include casual and outdoor wear and is designed for both men and women.

If this designer eyewear does not interest you, perhaps you may find something more appealing from our Carrera glassesrange? We also have an extensive range of designer eyewear consisting of several designer eyewear brands to browse from.

Frame of the Month 2014: March


3608 Gucci glasses (6F4)Frame of the month for March sends us back to our favourite colour palettes for glasses. We simply could not resist the allure of havana coloured Gucci frames, so for March, we have chosen 3608 Gucci glasses, colour model 6F4.

We have chosen yet another lightweight plastic frame for the comfort feeling. It is considerably rarer for someone to be develop irritation to the plastic frames than metal frames. The 3608 Gucci frame is very flexible and smooth and will glide into place when you wear it. The lightweight feeling will ensure you forget you are wearing glasses, such is the comfortability and design of the frame.

The 3608 Gucci spectacle is a combination of havana and dark havana, separated by a mud-coloured interval consisting of the recognisable golden Gs of the Gucci logo and brand. The Gucci frame targets the female population and will impress on any occasion. The 3608 Gucci glasses is a timeless eyewear and will suit everyone from a young adult age and above.

Frame of the Month 2014: February


8068 Luxx Ted Baker glasses (502 Olive)For our next frame of the month we have looked no further than Ted Baker designer glasses, more specifically the 8068 Luxx Ted Baker glasses (502 Olive colour model). Ted Baker have always been an adventurous glasses designer brand and never fail to provide fashionable eye wear accessories.

8068 Luxx Ted Baker glasses, 502 Olive model, is a combination of flat emerald green and opaque black colours with a dash of white and silver for artistic impressions. The 8068 Luxx Ted Baker frame is plastic, thick in shape and most importantly lightweight. The thick shape, especially along the arms of the glasses makes the glasses appear more as a fashion statement. As it can be seen more easily, it will be noticed and can compliment your choice of clothing more easily. The magnetic shade of green on the arms is also a very interesting and rare choice of colour for glasses.

The 8068 Luxx Ted Baker glasses is a smooth, lightweight frame. The plastic material the glasses are made of has been fine-tuned by many generations of frame-making research to allow a big frame feel so incredibly light and comforting when wearing. The frame-in-built nose-pads also relieve the nose from the pressure pads that sometimes form when wearing heavy spectacles for too long. The 8068 Luxx Ted Baker designer glasses are very impressionable and sophisticated and would look very suave of any wearer.

If this designer eyewear does not interest you, perhaps you may find something more appealing from our Ted Baker glasses range? We also have an extensive range of designer eyewear consisting of several designer eyewear brands to browse from.

Frame of the Month October

5268 Ray-Ban (5122 Violet Sand) glasses wins this month's Frame of the Month. We decided that this pair was worthy of this accolade due to how the frame looks. The purple is on trend with the current fashion nearing the end of 2013. The smooth sleek look on this frame gives the spectacle some class and quality points in the design aspect.

These remove uncomfortable pressure points from the nose areas when you wear them. The 5268 Ray-Ban glasses frame is simply very elegant and will not look out of place on ladies of any age, both young and old. Buy 5268 Ray-Ban glasses from eyebuddy at the lowest prices online!

The frame is absolutely gorgeous and looks incredibly sophisticated with an air of seduction and a touch of class.

The simplicity appearance of this frame convinced us that the 1212 D&G frame deserves the title for August. The simplicity feel of this frame makes it suitable for men and women, suitable for people of all ages, great for both indoor and outdoor activities and more.

Frame Of The Month 2013: July



Christian Dior have always been one of fashion's biggest luxury brands. For this month's chosen frame, we have chosen Christian Dior as our July, Frame of the Month. The CD3206 Christian Dior glasses, colour code: SO7 TRNRED RD, is a beautiful deep red coloured plastic frame. The red colour is so dark and deep it is almost borderline brown coloured.

Frame Of The Month 2013: April



We decided to go with the burgundy red coloured 936 Fendi designer glasses for our 4th Frame of the Month of the year in 2013. Fendi have always manufactured top of the range designer glasses for the ladies. This 936 Fendi (604 colour code) burgundy frame ticks all the positive criteria, persuading us to select this as our frame of the month.

The 936 Fendi glasses is a full rim plastic frame. The colour scheme is comparised of a delicate blend of dark and light red with a flush of transparency to give the designer frame an urban look and seductive charm. The classic Fendi trademark logo, the two Fs where the second one is inverted and flipped horizontally, can be seen lining the arms of the Fendi designer glasses forming an articulate stylish pattern. The Fendi specs is very smooth both in design and touch, and most importantly, feels very light for a comfortable fit on the nose and face.

Frame Of The Month 2013: March


Our Frame of the Month for March goes to BOSS 0197 Hugo Boss designer glasses. Hugo Boss are a reliable brand when it comes to producing classy goods and the BOSS 0197 Hugo Boss spectacle does not disappoint. This semi-rimless (supra) frame is designed to look sleek, sophisticated and casual at the same time. It is not an over-the-top frame where the designers have put too much effort into making the glasses unique, but at the same time it is not plain enough to look abysmal or boring.

The head of the frame holding the lenses is made of specialised plastic that is strong, durable and bendable. This helps give the 0197 BOSS eyewear some flexibility on the face. Attached to the lenses are the shiny black, olive coloured arms (colour code J8U). The arms on this Hugo Boss frame are very lightweight reducing unnecessary pressure around the nose and ears. The smooth curved arc arms around the ear position keep this frame stable and fixated on the head, even under strong and sudden head movement.

Hugo Boss 0197 spectacles are very suave indeed and it wasn't a difficult decision to pick this designer frame for our Frame of the Month in March. These frames are suitable for all sorts of occasions and events, including black tie dinners.

Frame Of The Month 2013: February


Our February Frame of the Month goes to 3133 Gucci (colour code: MH2 DKVIO BLU). This gorgeous frame is designed for the female population. Our panel of experts decided to opt for a different type of coloured frame this month. Blacks, whites and havanas are by far some of the most popular frame colours people usually choose for their designer frames. We decided to look past these obvious colour palettes and seek a frame that could optimise character and appearance.

The 3133 Gucci MH2 DKVIO is a plastic, lightweight frame that fits comfortably on the face and ears. A built in nose pad allows the designer glasses to gently fit on the nose without the nose pads applying much or any pressure. A 2 tone gradient on the front gives a sophisticated and stylish feel to the glasses. The arms feature the beautiful insignia of the Gucci brand logo enclosed within a silver patterned border and background. For ladies who are not afraid to try a different coloured frame from the norm, these blue Gucci designer glasses will not disappoint.

Frame Of The Month 2013: January


For our first "Frame of the Month" of 2013, we have chosen Oakley Hearsay. This designer frame simply grabbed our attention because of the number of colours splashed across the frame. Usually when so many colours are used, this takes away from the aesthetics of the frame as it becomes too chaotic. However with the Oakley Hearsay Ophthalmic frame, the colours used and the pattern of the arm design is just perfect. This eyewear features a two-layer design; a smooth purple exterior and a randomised mix of red, cream and white interior. The trademark "O" from Oakley can clearly be seen on the side of the arm next to a reddened hinge.

The Oakley glasses are made of very high quality plastic to ensure the arms do not snap under moderate pressure and can bend to an extent to provide maximum comfort on the wearer. The Oakley frame gives a very smooth appearance and brings out a very seductive side from the wearer. Hearsay Oakleys are suitable for ladies and comes in the size 51mm x 15mm. For an Oakley frame that's under £100*, it's a no brainer why we would consider this our Frame of the Month! Oakley are one of the biggest and most popular international designer eyewear brands in the world.

Ideal Christmas Gifts for 2012

Are you looking for Christmas gifts? Maybe looking for something different to the usual Christmas woolly jumpers? Why not buy spectacles as a different Christmas treat! For help choosing glasses for others or even yourself, you can check this buying glasses guide.

We asked our expert glasses specialist to pick out 6 frames which they predict will be next year's biggest fashion accessories. The frames are as follows:


The brown-coloured 1438 Gucci glasses are very sophisticated, plastic eyewear that look superb for any occasion. It doesn't matter if you're going out to a party, wearing it with a suit or just wearing it in general, these Gucci designer glasses will always look superb. The 8058 Bravo Ted Baker black coloured spectacles are fancy designer eyewear. Plastic rims with stylish metal sides, this oozes beauty of the highest level. Black-coloured specs are the most popular coloured spectacles after brown havana, so these glasses are quite a safe choice when buying for others. The 07MV Prada glasses features a fusion gradient of colour from dark brown to light brown. These eyeglasses look very sexy to the eye, an instant hit with glasses wearing people. Certainly an ideal Christmas gift for the ladies!

1163B Versace glasses are a ladies dream. White coloured spectacles give the wearer a luxurious aura. The articulate design on the arms of the frames looks special and of premium quality. Wingspan Oakley glasses have always been a lads specs. Made with secret technology and material on the arms allowing higher levels of flexability, these Oakley glasses are tougher than most. Made to give a comfy fit and designed in such a way these glasses can only be described as "Ultra Cool". Finally we have the 3085 Dolce & Gabbana glasses, a pair of partially transparent glasses that combines the elements of seduction and sophostication. A mixture of black and red gives the wearer a look of beauty and class, yet dangerous and one not to be messed with. The design and look of these glasses can be rated as the highest possible rank or rating. Such is the aethetics of these Dolce & Gabbana glasses that this frame will still look absolutely gorgeous and timeless even after 10 years have passed.

Everyday Problems Sorted!

Q. I need new glasses but have no idea which ones suit me - and there's too much choice at my opticians. Any suggestions?

A. A new website called eyeBuddy (www.eyebuddy.co.uk) allows you to try on frames virtually (log in required). Not only will you be able to see which glasses suit you but you'll also get a perfect fit. "Until now, online companies have 'guesstimated' the distance between your pupils (PD) which ensures best fit," says eyeBuddy's Mary Jane Greenhalgh. Opticians measure PD, but may leave it off a prescription or charge up to £100 for it. EyeBuddy's high-tech system can accurately measure PD on a photograph of your face. Just upload a photo, then select and drop on different styles until you find the perfect pair. There are over 20,000 styles to choose from - and advice on glasses to suit your face shape.

Glasses that Shine for Summer 2012

We are in officially in the Spring season of 2012 and it won't be long before Summer is knocking on our door step. For the people interested in buying a new pair of glasses in time for Summer, we have summoned our fashion experts to look through all our frames 1 by 1 to pick out the most suitable. We set them the task to choose a couple of designer glasses that will look radiant during Summer, are easy on the eyes to compliment your aesthetic appearance, can be worn to different events and programmes without looking out of place and lastly, that they are all are within the fashion trends of 2012.

1128B D&GEA9413 Emporio Armani3047 Gucci
57MV Prada2178 Monarch Ted Baker5206 Ray-Ban

The 1128B D&G designer glasses frame is more suited for the female wearer. A clean and crisp looking frame that produces a sophisticated and intellectual look upon the wearer. The clear colour change within the frame keeps the style of the frame modernised and timeless. The EA 9413 Emporio Armani designer frame is the classic white colour that is growing in trend again. An even combination of black and white gives the user a smart appearance. The Emporio Armani eyewear frame is more suited for the male wearer. The 3047 Gucci is one of the most popular Gucci models. A timeless frame that fits well with both young and old wearers among the female population. A popular choice for people who are sick of the typical black frames and want to experiment with coloured frames.

The 57MV Prada, a female spectacle, is a gorgeous frame. Violet and purple in colour, it has some small and intricate markings along the side of the frame for added effect and design. Sometimes it's the little things that make the biggest difference in aesthetic appearance. The burgundy 2178 Monarch Ted Baker glasses have an artistic design along the arm of the frame. Butterfly shaped silhouettes that can resemble a repetitive floral pattern that keep the specs very imaginative and interesting. The frame is metal and is best for the younger generation of spec wearers. The final frame selected by the experts is the classic 5206 Ray-Ban. A delightful combination of black, white and red makes this frame really stand out and is no surprise this frame is one of the best sellers around for Ray-Ban. The Ray-Ban designer spectacles is versatile with many different face shapes and sizes and is often preferred by the male wearing population. The Ray-Ban glasses are smart, sexy, sleek and is worthy of popularity surrounding this frame.

We hope our fashion experts have helped you with their selected choice of glasses for fashion trends of Summer 2012.

5 Reasons for Visiting the Opticians

5 Reasons for Visiting the Opticians Banner

 

  1. Detecting Health Conditions

    Optometrists can detect health conditions including cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disease, liver disease, stroke, multiple sclerosis, cancer and more. Many people are unaware that a lot of the conditions mentioned have symptoms in the eye that the optician can pick up in a regular check up.

  2. Spotting Eye Conditions

    Not all eye conditions have symptoms we can be aware of instantly. Symptoms can be gradual and some you won’t notice at all. Optometrists are trained to spot all eye conditions including glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, myopia and others. Not all eye conditions when treated return your eye sight back to original capacity, therefore regular visits to the optician regardless of your eye health is highly recommended. Optometrists also have the power to refer you to the hospital if necessary.

  3. Style & Fashion

    Opticians aren’t just for eye tests. You can go to an optician to try and buy glasses and sunglasses. You may have perfect eye sight but wear spectacles and shades as a fashion statement. Dispensing Opticians usually can help you with the look and size of spectacles to go for. Sunglasses are also highly recommended accessories for protecting the eyes from harmful UV rays from the sun.

  4. Repairing & Maintenance

    If your specs are broken, your glasses are uncomfortable or appear misaligned on your face, don’t attempt to fix them yourself. The first stop should be the opticians where trained staff can offer their services and try to help. If the problem is missing nose-pads or missing screws, these are minor things that the optician can take care of. Adjusting the glasses to align with the head is also part of their services.

  5. Contact Lenses, Hearing Care & Miscellaneous

    Most opticians can offer the services of contact lenses for people who find glasses a hassle. Some opticians also offer hearing care services for people who believe they may have hearing loss. Hearing loss is not easily detected at the beginning but will usually be noticed quicker by friends and family who talk to you often. Opticians will have any eye related accessories you may need such as eye vitamins, solutions and glasses cases, etc.

How to invite the best eyebuddies


To make the most of our buddy system and attain as much discount as possible, you need to register with us and send invitations to your friends. If your friends make purchases with us, your discounts and savings will increase. Further more, your future purchases will also affect your friend’s discounts and savings. For more information about how our buddy system works, please read here. eyebuddy have devised an interesting system where you have control of your discounts and savings when buying glasses online from us.

The big question is how do you invite the best eyebuddies? Not everyone you invite will register with us. Not everyone you invite will buy from us. Let’s be honest, most of the people who see the email invitation you sent will assume it is spam mail and delete without even reading it. Therefore we have come up with a couple of tips on how to invite the best eyebuddies to eyebuddy.

Tip #1 – Seek out potential buddies

Begin by drawing up a list of friends and family who wear glasses. They are people who are quite likely to purchase a new pair of prescription glasses in the future. Build on your list by adding friends or family who you have been on holiday with recently. Do you remember any of them wearing sunglasses or snow goggles? eyebuddy have a fantastic range of designer sunglasses that may appeal to them. Lastly, add any names of any contact lens wearers that you may know of. If you know someone who used to wear specs regularly but now no longer does, they may have changed to contacts. They may have had laser eye surgery or alternatives, but you can always ask to be sure.

Tip #2 – Talk to them

Now that you have a list of possible eyebuddies, you want to learn more about where they purchased their eyewear. Ask them where they bought their designer glasses, designer sunglasses or contact lenses. Find out what model their eyewear is (so you can search for it on the web). You can even ask if they remember or know how much they cost. If you have any friends or family going on holiday soon, you can tell them about eyebuddy’s range of sunglasses. If they’re interested, you can invite them and tell them to register through the email!

Tip #3 – Homework

Now you have the model, brand, and price and where they bought it from, you can compare the price they paid with our prices. Our default discount upon registering is just 15%, but with a little help from buddies you can reach 40%. For example, if you find a pair of frames that costs £100 without discount at eyebuddy, by registering you now pay £85. If all your buddies help you, you now pay £60. Does your homework show eyebuddy’s price to be cheaper? If yes, you can help us by spreading the word to your friends and family! Word of mouth can work wonders.

Tip #4 – Word of Mouth

If eyebuddy’s prices are indeed cheaper than its competitors, why not spread the word to your list of names? If your father tells you he got his wonderful glasses from his local opticians for £200 and you find the exact same frame could be bought from eyebuddy for £85, tell him! Everyone loves a bargain; everyone wants savings and plenty of it! Once they’re aware they could save a lot of money by buying glasses direct from eyebuddy, tell them you will send them an invitation by email and tell them to register through it.

FIVE reasons why STUDENTS should wear GLASSES and SUNGLASSES


  • Changing appearance

    You don’t need bad vision to wear glasses. Whoever said you did? Glasses are a fashion tool. You want to look sexy, sophisticated, geeky, cute, cool or regular plain; glasses are the answer! Putting makeup on can only do so much, glasses can help enhance the look you want. Students are always out and about, we all want to look good in front of others right? Who doesn’t?! If you’re someone who doesn’t usually wear glasses, try them out. Instant attention success!


  • Sleeping in class

    Student life, most people have been there. Socialising, partying, drinking, lectures and then there’s … well … sleeping. After a heavy night of partying, you’ve somehow managed to drag yourself to an early morning lecture. Just like everyone else you’re half awake, about to drift off but afraid of being caught and thrown out by the lecturer. Here’s the solution, get yourself a pair of wide frame sunglasses! Now you can relax and doze off looking perfectly cool and in the zone!


  • Heavy partying

    After a long and, perhaps in some cases uninspiring day at uni, you need to chill and let loose. You head off to a night club and after a few hours of drinking, your inhibitions have lowered. You wake up the next day full of regret but fear not! As always, we offer you some awesome solutions! First of all, ditch those beer goggles of yours. Everyone knows they’re rubbish for your eyesight! Get real specs! You’ll see a lot better and hopefully you won’t make the same mistake next time. Don’t let them get lucky again. You deserve better!


  • Holiday sunbathing

    It’s been known that students somehow manage to go on holidays together despite the cost. When students do go, it’s may be to Ibiza or Ayia Napa because of the sun, partying, alcohol and music (perhaps students learn this genetically). When you’re not sleeping or partying, you’re probably on the beach sunbathing. Make sure you’re wearing sunglasses. Your eyes are important so look after them! The effects of UV are very strong and the UV protection feature of quality sunglasses is often over-looked.


  • Most obvious

    This bullet point is probably the most blindingly obvious. Apologies for the awful gag. If you’ve been reading this blog with your face almost kissing the screen, chances are you need to wear spectacles. If that is the case, please see your local optician as soon as possible for an eye-test.


On a final note eyebuddy would like to state they are not liable for; your inability to attain instant attention success when wearing glasses; you still ending up being thrown out of the lecture because your sunglasses illusion didn’t fool the lecturer; you getting beer goggles again even after you got some new glasses; any eye-related problems you got from holiday because your sunglasses do not provide UV protection, get a pair of designer sunglasses instead or consult your opticians for their advice before going; stress to your eyes because you were reading this blog too close to the screen. Get yourself to an optician right this instant!

Word of Mouth, the power of words

One of the most important things in the world is communication. Just imagine a world where communication was ceased. We would be living in such a dead world, if living at all. Fortunately for us, there are many ways to communicate with each other. Talking, sign language, body language and reading are just a couple of ways we communicate by.

Many people will agree that the power of words plays a huge influence in our lives. The words that we say or write can have incredible effects on people. Think about the daily news you read, watch or hear. How much of it do you actually believe? It’s true that journalists often write with distorted bias or views based on the editor’s ideals. Whether it’s true or not, it doesn’t stop us reading and believing. That’s how rumours are spread.

Word of mouth, the power of words is behind the creation of rumours. It’s not about how gullible or naïve someone is. In the age of the internet network, rumours can spread across the world within seconds. There was the recent rumour about Facebook, the social network, shutting down in March 2011. People were shocked, scared, confused and even mourning for Facebook. This rumour spread after it was published in a news blog site.

Communication, talking or writing, is generally free. I say generally because there are many pedantic people in this world who would argue their phone bill disagrees with me. Most of us would agree that talking with each other is one of our daily joys in life. Whether it is about the weather, sporting activities over the weekend, complicated issues such as relationships, gossip or just plain chatter about where you got your latest stylish designer glasses from, we all enjoy it.

Word of mouth, the art of passing information to each other, is an ancient technique spanning thousands of years. When people need advice they often sought their family and friends first, and if they’re not the best people to ask they find a professional in the field they require assistance from.

eyebuddy is one of the latest companies to join the band wagon and support ‘Word of Mouth’. By relying on customers spreading the name of eyebuddy to family and friends, we hope to grow and be known this way rather than spend vast sums of money promoting ourselves in expensive advertisements. A lot of companies that advertise themselves regularly recoup the money used for this by marginally increasing the prices of their products and services. This basically means, you, the customer pays for their advertisements. You, the customer pay extra to buy their products or services. At eyebuddy, we don’t choose the route of expensive advertisements. Why should customers pay more for products? By supporting ‘Word of Mouth’, this allows us to sell much cheaper than other shops allowing you, the customer a greater proportion of savings.

If you are satisfied and happy with the services provided by eyebuddy, please help spread the name. The power of words is incredible, but it is only useful when people communicate. This is the eyebuddy way.

Why don't you want free money?


If I said, “I’ll give you £5 for free if you read this to the end”, would you? How about if I added, “no strings attached”? Still not convinced? You’re probably thinking it’s too good to be true. For such a ludicrous offer, there has to be a catch somewhere. Is there something that would benefit me, am I looking to gain something? Back to reality please, we’re talking about you and the free fiver, not about me. If you want something valuable, however, I insist you continue reading to the end.

I’m no story teller but let’s change the idea and scenery. You’re walking alone along a busy street full of people you don’t know. You’re just trying to mind your own business attempting to avoid eye contact with strangers. All of a sudden, your eyes are transfixed on a person wearing a white board with the words, 'ASK ME FOR £5 AND IT’S YOURS' written on it.

Would you ask? Yes? No? Back to reality, it’s always easier to decide in this situation when you’re not actually faced with it. I’m not talking about life and death situations. I’m talking free money, getting a free fiver. How about we make this idea a reality? For those of you relishing the opportunity of taking part in this experiment because you want the fiver, my apologies. I’m no scientist but I can announce this experiment was carried out in London during November 2010.

For 4 hours, a guy wearing a huge white board advertising his offer of free money walked along a busy pedestrian street. Giving meaning to, “does what it says on the tin”, he gave £5 to every person who asked for it. Want to hazard a guess at the number of people who thought outside the box and decided to ask?

Unfortunately I can’t reveal the answer to you. No one really believes statistics anyway, so no one would believe 2,719 people walked past him without a word and only 16 people asked. Ideas and excuses are probably churning up in your mind as you read this. “Maybe those 2,719 people don’t need the money?” or “they were just minding their own business” are just 2 possible reasons you may have thought up along with several more. One of the more plausible reasons would be that people distrust the idea of getting something for nothing. I’m no psychologist but I enjoy saying something controversial like that every now and then. Click here to view the video of the experiment.

To conclude, sometimes giving people free money is simply too difficult. So I’ve decided to lend you my wisdom. In all this doom and gloom, economic crisis and bad weather, if someone wants to give you free money, please take it. It’s a hard ask, I know.

Many people advertise about their products and deals, but they spend money to advertise. They increase the prices of their products by a margin to recoup what they spent on advertising. In other words, you pay for their advertising. At eyebuddy, however, we minimise advertising expenditure and pass the savings onto you for your ‘word of mouth’. As a result, the prices of our designer glasses and designer sunglasses are consistently low. Best of all, with our eyebuddy revolution system, you just continue to save, save and save. You save so much it’s almost the same as giving you free money.

Hopefully you’ll have gained something from reading this blog. If you have any comments, be sure to let me know as I’m no mind reader. I’m just a writer.
