… to quote Nicole Richie on this one: ‘Cause you look smarter.’ Doh. ‘Look’ being the key word here. I said it before and I’ll say it again – eyewear is so on trend these past years, as if it’s trying to make up big time for all those years it was a complete geek-ish attire, sans le chic.

It’s such a trendy accessory these days that you don’t even have to be blind as a bat to wear them. Yes, people with perfect vision have been known to wear glasses solely for the sartorial purpose. Whaaaaaaaaa? Me? Well… I have to wear them so that I get on the right bus to wherever I’m going, so that I can recognise people on the street, so that I can watch a film at the cinema. No. Sitting front row does not help.

The only time I’m ditching my posh eyewear is when I’m just too drunk to care. So, yeah, basically one every other weekend. BUT, the best part about wearing glasses right now is that besides appearing smarter and people actually listening to me, they go so hand in hand with my persona and my style.

And I LOVE black thick rimmed eyewear. To me they are the definition of geek-chic, and I ain’t afraid to rock this shit now. Years have been kind on my self-esteem.

If you’re in the-blind-as-a-bat-team you probably know that there is no such thing as too many pairs of glasses. So, of course I was ecstatic when Glasses Shop gifted me with a BEAUTIFUL pair of eyewear that I’ve been wearing round the clock since Friday.

They have tons of really really trendy and affordable eyewear and sunglasses designs, from classic to fashion forward, to wayfarers, to cat-eye styles, in various colours and shapes. Their shop is a MUST-SEE, so click on the above link, to check it out.


WHY I LOVE THEM? Every design comes with a free prescription if you need it, discounts and the quality is incredible.

  • The rims are so sleek and a perfect fit. So yes, those measurements are real and spot on, so make sure you do measure your face and old sunglasses to compare to whatever pair you wanna get.
  • You really get what you see online. Actually better. I’ve shopped for online eyewear before and I did get great pairs but never quite what I was excepting. They were either too big or too small.
  • These look incredibly posh and expensive and the shape I got is classic wayfarer with a slight-cat-eye twist. Just to spice things up a bit you know. 50s alert. :)
  • They have a protective case, microfiber cleaning cloth, and anti-scratch coating. Oh, and they make me feel like I’m this famous writer slash sophisticated fashion editor with a penchant for all things glamour-ghetto-sporty.

I am telling you I’m in love with them. So shooting a few pics was such a piece of cake, cause I couldn’t care less what I was wearing (hence the boyfriend t-shirt, sneakers and vintage coat), since I had my new wayfarer cat eye glasses on. Besides, I made it a day with my friend and wonderful and talented fellow blogger & photographer Anca from The Casual Cat.

Fun, but freezing photo-shot, where I got to be a photographer as well, shooting her style post pics – can I het a mass high five? -, and then ending things up with delicious deserts and selfies. Perfect Sunday.

With my new eyewear, my vision in perfect shape and style, I got my game back on. You’d think I can see beyond eye-friendly things  now… And you know what? I can. And I do. Cause nobody fools a woman with superpower vision? #justsaying

And now the pics. Thank you Anca!

    The swindle simultaneously served to remind me of how amazing and stupid people can be. I was traumatized by the way a fictitious internet broker made off with my $449000 USDT while posing as an investment advisor for cryptocurrencies. I had to ask a crypto expert for help since I was so shocked. I looked up a recovery business on my own to see if they could assist me in getting my money back. Captain WebGenesis was recommended to me in one of the comments I read. A reliable and honest Crypto recovery expert. I quickly got in touch with the Expert and in a span of 72hrs all my lost funds were recovered. I highly recommend Captain WebGenesis services to any victim seeking for help to recover their lost funds.

    G ‘day, my name is Michael Collman, and I’m from Australia,…
      Here is my recommendations,
    While looking for help after losing $324,000 USD in Cryptocurrency to an unregulated trading platform (89 percent. com), I came across numerous endorsements and testimonials about Captain WebGenesis, I sent him a direct message, to which he replied and requested some information, which I also provided. After five hours of working with the Expert. and because it took me three weeks to find Captain WebGenesis, the Cyber Lord was able to recover $259,200 USD worth of Bitcoin out of $324,000 USD worth of Bitcoin. Even though he only recovered 80% of my bitcoin, I’m still overjoyed because I didn’t think it was possible. Thanks to Captain WebGenesis… If your cryptocurrencies have been stolen in any way, contact the Expert as soon as possible.

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.

    My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough.

    Sometimes, we do not care about the trends but most of the time we like to “see” the trends. And some of us need glasses for that.
    You look great with this pair!
