New Geek Glasses!

I needed to get some new glasses last week as unfortunately my eyesight has gotten worse, boo! The upside is that I got to choose some fabulous new geek glasses!

I was thinking after I'd left the opticians how much attitudes towards glasses have changed in the past year or two.

When I first needed glasses, aged 11 or 12, they were seriously uncool. I needed them to see the blackboard so I couldn't not wear them to school. At that age when you're starting to become self aware, it wasn't the best time for me to get glasses, a weight problem and braces. Oh dear!

However, if I was to be a 12 year old nowadays, I would be so cool in my geek glasses! Even models like Cara whatsaname and The Little Mix girls all wear them! I think if I was a pre-teen nowadays I could have a bit more confidence in the way I looked in my glasses, such a shame! But brilliant for kids now. Just because you wear glasses, it doesn't mean you're a geek, it means you can't see what is written in front of you! And now it means you have great style! Woo!!

New Hot Brand: Laura Gravestock

I absolutely love silver jewellery. If you've read some of my previous posts you'll see I'm currently loving silver rings, especially ones featuring hearts! 

After seeing the ring on the top right of my selection in this months Cosmo mag, I had to check out jewellery designer, Laura Gravestock's website.

With a huge range of collections, materials and price ranges, I could have chosen so many from the site! 

I've done a little collection of my favourite rings but she also does earrings, necklaces and bracelets.

Review: Clinique Chubby Stick

My lovely mum gave me her Clinique Chubby Stick to try last week. I was moaning about how my lips always dry out when I wear lipstick and she told me try this. Hers was a lovely neutral brown/pink shade.

It was really smooth to put on and built up the colour really naturally. After a few hours my lips still felt moisturised, but not gloopy like with lipgloss or cracked like with lipstick! Ladies and gents I think we have a winner!

I will definitely be purchasing myself one of these bad boys when I next need a top up of my tinted moisturiser. The only thing I don't know is what colour to choose! They are so many lovely ones!

Do you have a Clinique Chubby Stick? And what colour should I get? :)

Weirdly enough, I'm not that into shoes, I'm more of a bag gal. But, when I was in M&S the other day checking out their autumn range, I came across these gorgeous mint green heels in the sale for only £11! I was sensible and didn't get them, as I needed practical shoes. Wah!

But when practical shoes look like this, things aren't so bad! These little beauties are going to be great for uni and interning this fall, and they do them in half sizes too! Perfect for my weird ass feet!

Have you bought any cute shoes recently? Or had to leave any gems behind?
