Something I hardly post on Be A Goddess is me in glasses. Ive worn them for the last 6 years but (as I'm short sighted) I don't wear them to drive and generally walk about so they're always missing from my outfit posts. Saying that I've started to get a LOT of headaches so I'm wearing them almost constantly (my job involves a lot of close work) that is when I don't put them down at work and leave them there (one of the main reasons I've been blogging so rarely as I cant stare at the screen any more).
Needing a change in prescription (and finally encouraging Chris to get his eyes tested) I wanted a completely new style. Weeks ago I was fortunate to win Laws London Retro glasses giveaway, and after much deliberation I finally picked a pair. These beautiful Eliza pair. (I'm not lying when i say it was a hard choice, I fell in love with the Babs pair too and might have to buy another.)
The Eliza pair are stunning, I love the cat eye shape (perfect pin up style) and the fact they come in purple means I could match then to my hair :) my previous pair was black and I felt I've outgrown a monotone life a bit so these are perfect. Plus they came super quick to my door in a really cool case- something I needed as I lose a case almost as much as my glasses, so having something so unique means people give it back to me. Although I received mine free the price is totally reasonable too (roughly £79 a pair).
I seriously told myself I would have 1 sensible selfie to show off these glasses but I couldn't find the "perfect" shot so ended up just pulling stupid faces.
I actually prefer them.
Today is being spent finally catching up on a months of chores, clothes are being altered, blog posts are to be planned, photos are to be taken and student finance is to be attempted to work out (I'm a little bummed I cant qualify as independent as a means tested bursary is super hard to qualify for).
P.S. I've only just realised how booby these photos are :D not a bad thing in my eyes.
