Girls that wear Glasses…

Did you know? 

I am as blind as a bat.

I am a constant contact lens wearer and have been for many years..

I have never enjoyed wearing my glasses, and therefore opted for contact lenses since the age of 18.

But this past week i have had super sore eyes. Sensitive, dry and generally a bit sad. 

Sad eyes indeed.

Probably tiredness related due to the delightful sleep snatcher that is insomnia (damn you insomnia!!) But its gotten to the point where my vanity has been cast aside, the contacts came out and the glasses went on.

Now i say vanity because for me i just feel weird in glasses, they feel almost alien on my face like they shouldn’t be there, I put this down to my super old glasses possibly? They just don’t sit nicely on my face, making me feel all kinds of awkward.

Which got met thinking…What better way to re-introduce my face to frames? 

Shopping for some nice new designer frames of course. 

Shopping obviously makes everything better.

So where to start? 

Inspiration is needed.

Taking inspiration from Pintrest  and i’m starting to like what i see. Ladies rocking glasses and looking so damn cool (not sure i’ll ever look that cool.. with or without glasses for that matter)

I want to change my mindset of glasses from negative to positive, where i no longer feel like i don’t want to wear them but that I will happily don my specs. 

And lets face it my eyes will most definitely thank me for it.

I love the look of these Givency frames, which i think would make wearing glasses more pleasurable for me.

This is where i ask you lovely glasses wearing readers, do you have any excellent glasses advice?

Love your four eyed friend 😉

    The Givenchy glasses look gorgeous on you, the most important thing to remember when wearing glasses is that they are comfortable and sit well and do not slip, otherwise you will not wear them. Happy hunting.

    You look fab in glasses! Those Givenchy ones do look gorgeous on you. I wear spectacles (!) but only when I'm on the computer… luckily my eyesight is pretty good, it's just the eye strain I have the occasional problem with. I used to have an issue with glasses rubbing the top of my nose (and I always get that annoying red mark there) but lately they don't hurt at all. Probably because I'm not wearing them often enough!

    I think you should go for those glasses. They look very chic. Very Jenna Lyons.

    Right there with you. I'm getting my first pair of glasses this Friday at the age of 44. I was so sure I would never be able to find any that I would like, but I got A LOT of help at the store picking out the right ones. Very blunt sales girls and my husband and I think I'm getting the right ones. I made a list before going to the store on colours, frame height, temple size, bridge position aso aso. And the ones I'm getting ticks all the boxes. Try on a lot! But yes, the Givenchy look amazing :-). Think of them as another fashion accessory!

    Technology has made life simple. People are now able to shop through the internet and purchase a certain product. The manufacturers of glasses have also made it easy for eye handicap people and other people who are in need of glasses to find them online. Website
