The girl with the tortoise shell spectacles...

Sunday, January 29, 2012

Im trying to incorporate some different colours into my wardrobe than just the rust tones, but they somehow manage to creep into every outfit in some shape or form! I got me some new eye wear bling :) the lovely people at proopticals sent me this amazing glasses with my prescription lens in them! Pretty much the coolest thing Ive ever got sent thanks to my blog. I must say when I started blogging 2 years ago I never thought Id be doing it in two years time, never mind have achieved so much from it. Im so grateful for all the opportunities its brought me & all the friends Ive made from it.

  23. Oh my gosh, I love those glasses! But I'm scared to order online. I just don't trust the virtual try on tool, I need to try each pair on 20 times with help from a friend with a digital camera so I can compare afterwards!
