Currently Crushing On:


My Glasses Of The Moment (Soon To Be Yours Too!)

I don't think I have ever mentioned the fact that I am a glasses wearer in a blog post before, mostly because up until recently I have found them to be more of a hinderance than anything else. However over time I have made peace with the fact that if I want to read anything further than a few feet away, then I'm gonna have to wipe away the chocolatey finger prints and put on my glasses... but HEY it's not all bad, because right now wearing glasses is considered to be v on trend. This month I have teamed up with Glasses Direct to show you that you don't have to pay a fortune for a stylish pair of frames- check it out below!

As autumn has officially arrived here in the UK (although tbh it's been creeping up on us since mid-July) I have taken full advantage of the changing weather and brought out just about every chunky knit known to man- because if you can't wear at least 3 layers then is it really even November? I find the season of autumn super comforting and that is largely down to way that my style changes; I am by no means a summer dresser, so as soon as it becomes acceptable to wear ankle boots, roll-necks and a bobble hat every day the excitement becomes WAY too real. This year following the 'rise of the the glasses' I decided that I would utilise my frames, using them to accessorise rather than as a necessity... it's so easy to get stuck in a rut with style (yep, even in autumn) but I have found that by adding just a POP of tortoise shell it instantly transforms my outfit into something that looks a little more put together- which is always a plus! As somebody with neither the budget nor the desire to own a different pair of glasses for every occasion, when settling on a pair of frames I have to consider the fact that not only must they look good, but they have to last.

I recently picked up a pair of glasses on a whim after getting a new prescription, and as much as I love them I can't shake the feeling that the quality just isn't there, so when Glasses Direct gave me the opportunity to find my perfect pair I jumped at the chance! They offer a free home trial service which is super helpful if you aren't quite sure which style suits you best, and although I have opted for my 'safe shape' for years I recently took the time to try on a shed-load finding that there were so many styles that looked far better than I had originally thought (and a lot of shockers too, but the less said about that the better) After much deliberation I decided on the Hoxton glasses by London Retro; despite not being a brand that I had heard of before, I am now madly in love with the entirety of the collection... did I hear somebody say Christmas present!? I bloody love my new frames and if you too are looking to spice up your autumn wardrobe, I would 100% recommend checking out Glasses Direct; they stock a huge range of brands, with snazzy frames at affordable prices. Whether you're into tortoiseshell like myself, or prefer something a little more sleek and sophisticated (defo not me) there is something for everybody- WINNER!
