There are several things about today that make me incredibly happy.
First, this dress. It has owls and bunnies and roses all over it, which are a few of my favorite things; it’s yellow, which is swiftly becoming my favorite color, and I am pretty sure that it will be working with me through every single season. It’s the perfect year-round dress. (My only complaints are that it’s quite staticky because of the fabric, which probably wouldn’t bother most people but I hate getting shocked, and it’s fitted enough of a top that I can’t quite lift my arms up all the way. Small things, though.) Secondly, the weather! It is currently 36 degrees, frosty, and absolutely perfect here. I had forgotten how much I liked cold weather, and I’m excited to bundle up in scarves and boots, chunky sweaters, and warm hats and mittens. Plus, it gives me a reason to buy Asa new clothes; he needs a nice warm coat, some mittens, and some warm boots to keep him toasty as we go out and about. And I LOVE shopping the little boy clothes at Target, so I’m excited to find him some cute winter things. Third, my glasses!
I have had glasses since I was about twelve, but I had only ever updated them three times — I had the same glasses from when I was twelve up until I was about twenty, and then I got a new pair that I’ve had for the last six years. Last summer, I worked with Firmoo to review two pairs of glasses that I loved… but sadly, I sat on and broke my favorite pair, and the other pair got run over by a lawn mower.
Yeah. For real.
And since I’m not fond of my old frames, I just don’t wear glasses on the blog (or to anywhere fancy, like… church… uh…) which is probably why if you’re relatively new you’ve never seen me in glasses before. And I don’t have contacts. So when Firmoo contacted me again recently to review another pair, I was ecstatic! I’ve been tired of my old frames for a really long time, but I’ll be honest: with me not working right now, we’re broke and can’t afford anything outside of necessities. On the list of needs, new glasses is at the bottom. The only way I’m getting new anything right now, quite frankly, is because of kind sponsors who send me complementary clothing to wear on my blog.
I am so thankful for this blog and all of the opportunities it’s sent my way!
Back to the glasses! I decided on these frames because they were a bit reminiscent of the other ones that I adored, but they’re a little bit rounder and slightly more retro looking. I adore them to no end, you guys. I’m so, so happy to finally have a new pair of glasses that I love, so that I can see what I’m doing when I take outfit pictures. Haha!
I really love Firmoo; it’s so easy to order and add in your prescription, and shipping was really fast! I think I ordered the glasses and they arrived perhaps two weeks later. Plus, they have SO many great frames to choose from!
These frames fit my face perfectly, I think! They’re very sturdy, which I need, and they’re really comfortable. Some frames make my ears hurt, but these ones don’t press weirdly (my ears are slightly crooked, which is probably the issue.) All around, I love them and I’m going to be extra careful with them because I don’t need to break yet another fantastic pair of frames. I feel very much more myself in glasses like these!
So tell me, what’s making you happy today?
I hope you’ve all had a fantastic week! Happy Friday!
