My body's falling apart

Well, my secret's out - I'm a glasses wearing geek. When I was younger, I used to be so desperate for glasses that I'd sit with my face ten inches from the tv screen whilst wearing clear lens glasses from Claires. Then, at twelve, I got my wish. Only then, when it was too late, did I realise WEARING GLASSES ISN'T ACTUALLY THAT FUN. Now, at 21, I'm blind as a mole and, after failing to recognise my own Mother in a restaurant, I realised it was time to kit myself out with a pair of glasses that weren't too embarrassing to wear outside of my flat. Enter MyOptique, who were kind enough to send me over a pair of their London Retro sunglasses. They're the perfect frame shape and they also come with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective lenses, so my little mole eyes are having a pretty good time.

I also decided to join the trainer club this week. If you follow me on Twitter, you may have noticed that it's recently turned into a series of foot-updates. First, there were blisters. Then my gradation shoes cut all my heel. And then, well, then a blister started growing on top of an already existent blister. Me and my feet looked at each other and nodded in mutual agreement: it was time to get some comfy shoes. So when the lovely Jade from Bank got in touch, I knew exactly where I was headed, and picked out these amazing Adidas babies along with some sweet freakin' dungees to go with them. I picked up some basic tees in the New Look sale last week which have been great under my dungarees. Actually, they've been great with everything... long live the basic.

Ooooft that lipstick! You look fab :)
I'm experiencing death by blisters at the moment too... ridiculously mine didn't appear during my weekend of standing up and dancing about at Latitude, but decided to form on a 10 minute walk to the supermarket. Ridiculous.

Haha! Love this, my dad took my bro to the opticians when I was younger and sadly for my dad's budget he took me along. Even though I had no issues with seeing, I pretty much threw the biggest tantrum ever for him to get me these mickey mouse glasses I took a liking to, they were prescription only! I wore them for about 2 days. So, I understand your 12 year old self trying sacrificing eyesight in the name of fashion!
