i got myself a pair of glasses after maybe five years with my old ones (i rarely wore them. i’m more a contacts kinda girl.)
i realized if i don’t take care of my eyes by giving them a break every so often, i could lose one of my most valuable tools. and that’s not good or going to happen insha’allah.
i always get excited when buying a new frame because i love glasses, but once the lenses are in i just don’t want to wear them anymore. my script is really high and that leads to a less than ideal look with them on.
this pair is different. they are such a classic frame, with a little edge. and the fact that they fit my abnormally small face, an issue i have had with my glasses in the past, is a huge plus! and also, now, i just don’t think it’s worth it to worry so much about how an item i require to see properly looks on my face.
I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW.
i found them in a cute boutique in playa a few months back, and the shopgirl told me johnny depp swears by this brand. haha. that didn’t sell me, but for some reason i keep telling people that little tidbit of info. lol.
i ordered the frame online here and got my aunt to fit the lens. et voilà. my new face-gear for slow mornings, evenings and sundays!
do you wear glasses? i bet you my prescription is worse than yours!
ps. niyya, my thrill-seeking, daredevil-ish little rascal gave me a big scare the other night. i had to take her in to see a doc (let’s be real, it was an er doc) for a gash she got on her lip and gums from “surfing” on, and taking a big wipe-out off the bed.
SHE ACTUALLY LEARNED TO STAND THAT WAY. ON UNEASY, UNSTEADY GROUND.
she’s some kind of wonderful. lol. my cheeky little monkey. and knowing her, she probably had something in her mouth to cause extra damage. she’s a tough cookie, though. and it seems she can withstand a lot alhamdulillah. not too many tears despite the crazy amount of blood and my short-lived moments of panic, and a silly and playful attitude afterwards.
i think i’m beginning to get this whole second born/last born thing.
FUN-LOVING, AFFECTIONATE, REBELLIOUS.
i only worried and took action beyond what i could do for her at home, because the cut seemed big and, i don’t know… you never know.
