If I am being honest, I thought the whole blue light phenomenon was a trend – a way for companies to make money of off potentially false claims. I’m a bit of a skeptic.
So, why do I use them now?
I started getting headaches while Nate and I were traveling the world. I wasn’t ignorant. The headaches came on when I’d been working for 3+ hours at my laptop or on my phone. I actually noticed it was worse on my phone. It was THE WORST when I’d go from my computer for a few hours and then to my phone. The headache would intensify.
These headaches were not something that ibuprofen helped. I don’t get headaches. It’s a very rare occasion. And if I had in the past, ibuprofen would surely do the trick.
Now, it’s also worth saying that these headaches were likely due to a combination of screen time + trap tension from sitting for hours with my shoulders rounded and elevated.
Let’s just keep it honest, okay?
Point being, I dealt with the headaches while traveling, using the excuse that I’d address it when we got home.
When we did finally arrive home, my headaches were to the point that I could not work for longer than three hours. Even if I took a break, the headache would come on the second I looked at a screen again. It was annoyingly obvious what was going on.
Like I said, I am sure there were multiple contributors to the headaches, but blue light has since proved to be a top offender.
Hi, I have to work. I have to look at screens for longer than three hours a day to be successful in my business and serve my clients.
I needed blue light blockers, all damn day.
Might I intercede here to touch on the point that this is a form of self care. A non-sexy bubble bath, get your nails done type of self care. Making sure you’re taking care of the longevity of your body from all angles – that is self care, and self love.
I follow quite a few humans who wear blue light blockers over on the ‘gram. So, I started asking around because while blocking blue light was important to me, so is style. I wanted blue light blockers that were classy, and fit my vibe. Yes, I like to think I have a vibe. And I wanted my glasses to fit that.
That my friend is when I discovered Klassy Network. A female-run company serving female entrepreneurs and boss ladies who care about blocking that blue light + looking good while doing it. Hello there, IT ME.
I ordered “determined” in clear gold and LLUUURRRVVV THEM. I wear them ALL THE TIME as you’ll see in my Instagram Stories or on any of my live calls.
And yes, they work. Headaches were gone IMMEDIATELY. I could have cried. The hype is real y’all. Skepticism GONE. Ya girl is over here blocking all the blue light in style and wants the same for you.
I shared about my glasses on the ‘gram for months and multiple followers have since purchased from Klassy Network based on my #influence, all organically might I add. I am proud to say I am now a Klassy Network Ambassador. Which means, I save you money + get a kickback for spreading a brand that I full heartedly support.
Code “ANNIE” saves you 10% and yes, I get a kick-back if you use my link or code – which are linked in this post.
Again, I have been sharing about this brand long before they offered me an ambassador code. And I will never, EVER, share anything with my humans (that’s you), if I don’t use it myself, and LOVE IT. My rule is, if I wouldn’t be sharing about it organically, out of my own experience with it, I certainly won’t share about it in order to make a profit from my people.
