Hope ye are all having a happy hump day! The weather is still going strong(ish) in Ireland at the moment AND I have a day off work, hurrah! A little story about my glasses journey...at the start of the year I picked up a viral eye infection in my left eye which meant I couldn't wear my contact lenses, those of which I had been wearing on a daily basis for 4 years. It was tough. I know this probably doesn't seem like a big deal to some but If you're not accustomed to wearing glasses on a regular basis again...well it sucks. ESPECIALLY when you hate your glasses with a passion and do not feel confident wearing them.
So, I decided to invest in a brand spanking new pair of glasses plus prescription sunglasses. The sunglasses were a definite MUST aswell as I looove wearing sunglasses (I have about 15 pairs) and always have a pair at hand. Yes I'm one of those who wears them even when the sun ain't shinin'!
Now I have a serious weakness for tortoise shell/leopard print pattern sunglasses and decided that I wanted this kind of pattern for my regular glasses. Of course I got similar style prescription sunglasses from the very delectable and classic Rayban Wafarer range. Major love. For my regular glasses I also wanted frames that were both comfortable to wear (not sticking into the back of your head) and wide enough to see more...if that makes sense?! My previous glasses had a very tiny frame so I literally had to turn my head to see everything. Very annoying. I went for Vogue glasses with a Rayban Wafarer style as I believe they suit my face shape the best (vuuuury oval!).
Two months in and I honestly could not be happier. I feel much more confident wearing glasses and feel that they suit me through and through. If you are in a similar predicament I would suggest investing in a new pair that you feel comfortable with as at the end of the day YOU will be the one wearing them day in day out and you want to be the most confident person you can be!
Happy mid week everyone!
