50% off eyeglasses and sunglasses at GlassesShop.com

I have had the same pair of prescription sunglasses for almost 4 years now. They are a nice pair of aviators but I have always wanted to be able to switch up my look with different frames but all of the glasses I saw at my eye doctor were really expensive. While I wanted to change up my look I did not want to break the bank doing so.

When I stumbled upon GlassesShop.com I was really excited to see a really wide variety of eyeglasses, sunglasses, and prescription sunglasses at really affordable prices ($20-40 range). I knew I wanted something that looked totally different that what I currently wore and I was immediately drawn to this cat eye black and gold frame:


This was my first experience with finding eyeglasses online and I cannot share enough with how simple and easy it was! And I honestly would have never bought this style of frame from my eye doctor because of price since it is a look and frame style I don’t typically wear. I wasn’t going to spend a big chunk of change on a look I wasn’t sure I would like but with the price points at GlassesShop.com it makes it much easier to be a little bit more adventurous in your look and try something new!



This will definitely NOT be my last time I shop for prescription sunglasses or eyeglasses online. With easy to use search filters and even a super fun “Try On” feature where you can upload your picture to see how you would look in different pairs you are sure to find exactly what you are looking for!

I am excited to be able to offer my readers 50% off any eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses of your choice (sale frames excluded)!! Use promo code  GSHOT50 at checkout to redeem.



And make sure to share a picture of you rocking your new frames on Instagram and tag me {@emilyjgoodman} and GlassesShop.com {@glassesshop_com} so we can see what style you chose!



Handcrafted Cutting Boards from Bloxstyle

Being in the kitchen as much as I am means the use of many cutting boards to prep all of my food! While I always like to have some plastic cutting boards on hand for meat and seafood I love wooden ones for veggies and to use as serving board while entertaining guests.

I was so excited when I learned about Bloxstyle – handmade wooden cutting boards that can be personalized and engraved with the text or custom image of your choice.




When I was looking at all of the great design options I was immediately drawn to the American Flag design. July 4th is one of my favorite holidays and the flag design just screamed summer BBQ’s and time spent with family and friends.

With your choice of Cherry, Maple, Beech, Bamboo, and Sapele there is a wood to match your personal style and kitchen decor. Once I made my choice  I quickly got an email back showing a proof of what my board was going to look like for my approval.

Within days I received my gorgeous cutting board (I chose the Sapele wood). I love that it came with a cleaning and care guide so I know how to take the very best care of my beautiful new board. Time to get me some Bloxstyle Wood Butter!

I am looking forward to using for many years to come as both a cutting board as I prep my meals and as a serving piece when entertaining guests. Here’s a shot from this morning when I was cutting up the bananas to put in my shake.




If you are looking for a unique gift or a personal purchase to add to your kitchen make sure to check out Bloxstyle. Their stunning cutting boards make great holiday and wedding gifts as well!

Along with cutting boards they also have a beautiful assortment of wine boxes, personalized signs, and games among many other items.

Did you know that the popular deals site Groupon now has a coupon features more than 70,000 from over 9,500 stores? I am always on the hunt for a good deal, especially around the holidays when I am buying presents for friends and family. I have been a fan of Groupon for years now and have gotten countless deals such as massages, dinners, tickets to shows, etc from their site. I was excited to see the coupon feature and knew they would have some really great brands featured.

Today I wanted share my favorite fitness apparel and accessories from the stores I shop at that are currently on my holiday wish list. Each of these stores is featured on Groupon Coupon so not only can I get some of my wish list items -but I can get them at a discount!

I love these Marled Pieced Exp Core Compression Leggings from Express and with the coupon I can get them at 20% off!




Nike‘s are my favorite sneakers and like to get a new pair each year since mine take quite a beating each day. I like the pop of color on these from the neon.




Good music played loud while working out is a must for me! I find it makes me push harder when I can blast my favorite songs. A few of my friends have this Bose SoundLink® MiniBluetooth® speaker and it gives out such great sound. With Groupon Coupons I can get this with free shipping!



Staying hydrated during the day is something that I struggle with. Did you know you should be drinking half your body weight in ounces of water each day? I need a fun water bottle that keeps my water ice cold. I love this Under Armour Vacuum Insulated Bottle from Sports Authority. You can use the coupon and get 10% as well.

This last item is a TOTAL wish list item, especially because I don’t have space in my house for it. I would love to sit in this Renew™ Zero-Gravity Massage Chair by Brookstone after a hard workout. I also tend to get tight in my upper back in neck from sitting a desk each day and a massage from this bad boy would loosen me right up.

I can dream can’t I?
