Many of you heard me chat on my Instagram Stories about how excited I was to try out these blue reflect glasses from Coastal. For years now, I would get headaches after a long day hunched over my computer and cell phone. Initially, I thought it was my posture causing the pain. But the more I read about it, the more I realized that the headaches were the product of HEV. This high-energy visible (HEV) artificial blue light emitted by digital device and fluorescent lighting is known today to have a negative impact on the retinal cells and can cause headaches, dry eyes, blurred vision and eyestrain.

This blue light can also impede your body’s natural production of melatonin, making it more difficult to get to sleep at night; hence why iPhones now have the option to change the light to yellow when you’re getting ready for bed.

I loved the styles Coastal offered, so I took the plunge and ordered this pair (in the color Havana) to test out my theory. I wanted to wear them for a couple weeks to make sure I could give you an honest and comprehensive review. Well, the verdict is in! They really do help with headaches and eye strain. So much so that I was able to cut out my habit of popping a couple Advil at 4p.m. every day.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Picks for the Home

SHOP THE POST:


Happy Monday, loves! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is winding down and it’s certainly for the best for me and my wallet. While I spent the first week shopping for Fall fashion, I can’t believe I neglected the home goods category for so long. Especially since I have been decorating my office and redecorating our guest bedroom. Once I tabbed over to the Nordstrom Home category, I couldn’t believe how perfectly the pieces worked with my design. Silly me! Well, I don’t want y’all to miss out on these amazing deals, so I rounded up my favorite picks that are all still available.

As for me, I purchased these curtains, this blanket, and this waste basket to put some of the finishing touches on my office. But I’m loving the bar cart, candles, and jewelry organizer! Shop my favorites below by clicking on the item’s image.

I am so excited to finally share our wedding photos! We got married at Langtree Plantation in Mooresville, N.C. and the day was such a whirlwind, I honestly needed these photos to actually see how everything looked. You know how people say the day flies by? Well, they are only half lying. The wedding and reception were over in the blink of an eye, but the moments before walking down the aisle were some of the longest of my life. But all the stress, nerves, excitement, planning, etc. was SO worth getting to marry the love of my life! And while my amazing photographer Alison of The Glitter Lens (she’s also my blog photographer!) handed me over 600 photos, I’ve narrowed it down to my favorites to share with y’all.
