Gift Idea: Messy Weekend Sunglasses

Friday, November 22, 2019
Before I get into today's post, I want to mention my latest giveaway which is live over on twitter (@ofbeautyand) in which you can win a hamper of Baileys chocolates worth £50. The giveaway ends on the 2nd so you still have time to enter on twitter.

Today's post is focusing on not only a great gift idea but also my new favourite pair of sunglasses, from a brand I hadn't heard of before, Messy Weekend. They're a Copenhagen based company with a great range of sunglasses and snow goggles for both men and women.

*Messy Weekend Copenhagen Hobbes Sunglasses (€55) 
I was very kindly sent a pair of their 'Hobbes' sunglasses in black, although there are other colour options available for all of their styles. I was torn between the 'Hobbes', the 'New Depp' and the 'Hobbes Revo' sunglasses, all of which I love. They have such a great range of styles to choose form as well as traditional and more colourful options.
The 'Hobbes' design is one of their best sellers and it's easy to see why as it seems to be such a universally flattering shape and style that I think will suit everyone. I have the black option which I love (especially with the more warmer toned lenses) but there's also a crystal option too - the army colour was my favourite of the four but it is currently sold out.

Until I started learning to drive a few years ago, I never really wore sunglasses as let's be honest, they aren't entirely necessary in Manchester where we very rarely see the sun but they are very handy when I'm driving. I have a few pairs that I alternate between as I always need a pair in my handbag and in my car so I'm very happy to have another.
I love the simple but flattering design, the black frame combined with the warmer lenses and how comfortable they are. I find that some sunglasses are a little heavy and can leave a mark on the bridge (of it can remove a little of my makeup) of my nose but thankfully I don't have that issue with these. I've been wearing these sunglasses the most recently as they are just so lightweight, comfortable to wear and I love the design.

Not only do the sunglasses feel comfortable and fit well but they also came nicely packaged and the brand itself has a more environmentally conscious ethos with their 'clean ocean' partnership. For every pair of sunglasses purchased, part of the revenue goes to finance a waste and plastic clean-up program in the Colombian Pacific called 'Origines' which is fantastic.

If that isn't enough, Messy Weekend will be starting their Black Friday sale in a couple of days so head over to their site and sign up to be notified about the sale! If you can't wait that long then you can use the code: IGWEEK30 to get 30% off your order!
