Of Eyeglasses and Spectacles (act II)

There are many things I need more of even when I don't need more - makeup, shoes, sunglasses, dresses and eyeglasses. After I finished my first glasses post, I found 2 more sites that offer at-home try on programs. One didn't have enough frame styles of interest, but classicspecs.com had at least a few more interesting options. This time I already know which 2 of these I like, so I want to play a game. See if you can guess which are my favorites!

Of Eyeglasses and Spectacles

Like many other aging late-adopter pseudo-hipsters, I love glasses. Mostly ridiculously large glasses. I also love that my HSA allows me to use my money to buy glasses. My prescription changed a smidge this year (luckily not so much that I can't still use my old glasses if I want, though it's probably not technically recommended) so I decided I should get a few new pairs of glasses in my correct prescription. You know, to keep my doctor happy and all…

So here is the pair I already have, they came from my eye doctor's office and I got half off because I also bought a year's worth of contacts from them. They are Baby Phat frames (don't worry, I lol'd too) and I feel like they make me look like my bff Kristen:

Ipsy (March 2014)

March's Ipsy bag brings us "Destination Beauty." At first I thought it had to do with travel, but then why would they give me nail polish? Can you bring nail polish on a flight? I don't even know. Now that I look at it more, though, I think it just means things you can wear while on spring break more than actually traveling with products.

I kind of went away for a while. Not necessarily on purpose. First I was being lazy, then I was doing a lot of house rearranging and my computer was buried for a couple of weeks. Life happened. I still did some things, though, so here are… things.

Ipsy (February 2014)

The theme for February's Ipsy bag was, shocker, The Look of Love. Everything was (was supposed to be) based around the oh so romantical month that includes Valentine's Day. The problems? A) My bag didn't arrive until 4pm ON Valentine's Day, so a little late to be of use, B) I have zero romantic bones in my body (No romantic organs either in case anyone was wondering) and C) I don't understand how all the products included involved love/romance anyway. So yeah, there was some stuff. It looked like this:

Weekend Makeups

Does anyone else watch Pretty Little Liars and Ravenswood? I'm so obsessed, I think I'm 16.

I'm just sitting around watching tv and waiting for the next snowstorm. We're supposed to get 2 more within the week. I don't really mind, though I did just wash my car on Saturday and now that $8 for the automated carwash is wasted. I'm cheap. Anyway, I did some stuff over this past weekend. Nothing exciting, but I decided I wanted to dress like I was going to do something that mattered and that included makeup of course.

Not sure why these pictures have my forehead looking shiny as hell. Especially since that has been a dry/itchy/peel-y area this winter. Otherwise I liked this, though.

Graze Box #2

I decided I didn't want to post every Graze box I received because that would require too much effort. I instead decided I would get a few, try everything and then post my thoughts in a clump. So here is my clump. Of snacks. Sounds delicious, right?

Btw I don't think anyone ever used any of my friend codes. I don't know if you still need them to subscribe, but if anyone wants one: https://www.graze.com/us/p/CASSAN46U.

Chili & Honey Almonds: I licked one before deciding it was too spicy and I don't even like almonds. Why did I let them send this?

Super Berry Detox: This one is all fruit so I thought I would love it. I was incorrect. It had a really wonky grainy texture as you chewed and I am not down with green raisins. Raisins should be purple.
