Full Time Four Eyes

Long time no see!! It seems we go through stages of meeting on a daily basis to gossip about nice things to put on your face and then all of a sudden I disappear into the sunset… Or in this case, into the office. Yes, you read correctly, I am officially a full time working gal! After graduating from my journalism degree in July, I’ve managed to wangle myself a junior reporter role at a magazine. The job required me to relocate just a few days before I was thrown into this full time, 12 hour day malarky, so I have neglected this little loved corner of my life – please accept my sincerest apologies.

This quick post is about the bane of some of us less gifted people’s lives – glasses. I got my first pair of glasses in my first year of university, only three(ish) years ago, so compared to other people I’m still new to the game. They really don’t feel natural on my face – whenever I’m wearing them I can just feel them RIGHT THERE and me no likey but needs must.

When I found out I had got this job, I knew I needed to get new specs because my original ones just weren’t strong enough and my role requires me to be in front of a computer for much of the day. I went to Specsavers where they had a 2-for-1 deal on frames which proposed more of a dilemma than you may think – I have a HUGE potato head and my first pair of glasses were actually men’s!

Replay frames

French Connection frames (and the sun came out?)

After much deliberation I opted for two slightly different styles, a light brown tortoiseshell frame with a slight cat eye effect for a bit of style and another darker, more basic style of frame. I planned to leave one pair at work and the other at home, but I seem to have become attached to the tortoiseshell frames and tend to keep them in my handbag. I’m also pleased to inform you that both of these are designed for women – hurrah! Shout out to all my fellow potato head gals.

PS. Here’s a sexy out take showing the struggle I have with serious selfies… Sorry for arousing you.
