International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. It is a day that seeks to change world attitudes for gender equality, not just on International Women’s Day, though… every day. This year International Women’s Day is asking us to #BeBoldForChange and help to create a better working world, a more inclusive, equal world.
With Valentines day around the corner, many of us are struggling to think of the perfect gift to give to the one we love. Trying to get booked in to that special restaurant you both like can be a nightmare, and realistically who wants to be cleaning rose petals off the carpet and bathroom floor for a week after? Admittedly we are probably guilty of being biased here, but we think the perfect gift to give to someone this Valentines is a beautiful piece of eyewear. Maybe you’re in the process of booking your next summer holiday? Or the morning drives to work are becoming even more blinding? Maybe it’s time to give your specs a much needed upgrade?

Like many retailers, black Friday is a pretty manic time here at Red Hot Sunglasses. Since 1932, the name Black Friday has been given to the start of the festive shopping period in America. It normally involves retailers opening up particularly early and offering up discounts and promotional sales on their products.
According to Wikipedia, the earliest evidence of the phrase Black Friday applied to the day after Thanksgiving in a shopping context suggests that the term originated in Philadelphia, where it was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic that would occur on the day after Thanksgiving. History has seen normal human beings turn in to shopping-mall savages on this day all in the name of a bargain. As years have gone by the Black Friday phenomenon has become a worldwide event after travelling overseas to the UK through Wallmart sister company ASDA, and has also been taken on by the online marketplace. With it’s growing popularity the day has also seen an alarming amount of hysteria in shops… thank god we’re only online here at Red Hot Sunglasses.
Thankfully, since 2014 Black Friday has seen a bit of a decline. Hopefully restoring the world to some kind of normality. Although looking back at 2016 I think that ship has well and truly sailed. As a finger up to the madness of Black Friday, here at Red Hot Sunglasses we are holding a huge site wide sale with up to 70% off for 2 whole weeks. That means you don’t have to set your alarm for 6am on Friday to frantically hunt out your other halves Christmas gifts on the cheap.
