Boys Do Make Passes At Girls Who Wear Glasses

After reading Becca's blog the other day I was really pleased to see her post about being proud to wear glasses. It was so refreshing to see someone who embraces glasses and it inspired me to do a post about my experiences. I also recommend reading Becca's post as it's a really refreshing read.

 My black glasses and my red glasses

I've worn glasses since I was 10 years old. It was inevitable really as my mum has to wear them all the time and my dad has to wear them for reading and being on the computer. I remember going to the opticians with my mum when I was little and trying all the glasses on but when it came to actually needing them it wasn't something I was happy about.

I've never really avoided wearing them as at school I needed them to see the work but on occassions I did used to take them off when I wasn't at school but it soon got to the point where I couldn't really do that without getting headaches.

I'm happy to say that I've never been bullied for wearing glasses and I definitely think it's more accepted now. I actually really like wearing my glasses now and fully accept I can't change it so why not embrace it? I can't wear contacts (I have tried) as I have an astigmatism in my left eye which essentially means it's rugby ball shaped rather than football and I found contacts far too uncomfortable because of this, but I think even if I could I'd still rather wear glasses as I think they actually suit me! 

Wearing glasses no longer bothers me I'm happy with how I look with and without them on. I can't understand why anyone would avoid wearing glasses just for vanity reasons because it'll just make your eyes worse. There really isn't an excuse anymore as they're are some beautiful frames out now to suit everyone. 

So if you've got to wear glasses embrace it, you look beautiful no matter what!


  1. love the post! i'm 100% with you girl!

    rocking the glasses....
    only i rock them in the comfort and privacy of my home... haha


  2. I think your glasses suit you and look lovely :) I really don't suit glasses but I love them on other people, automatically look more intelligent! I think my dad has that rugby ball situation too

  3. I've worn glasses since I was 5 and as I've got older I've just learnt to accept them! I feel like they make me look a lot younger but wearing lenses all the time makes my eyes really sore so I've learnt (especially as my job means sitting at a PC all day) to wear them at least once a week :)


  4. i've never had an issue wearing my glasses, i think they make people look more chic :) i love your red pair xx
    my blog: boho vanity

  5. You look lovely! Both pairs definitely suit you. I usually wear contacts, but still opt for glasses sometimes... especially now I can buy different pairs cheap online :)

  6. I've always wanted to wear glasses, my best friend does and I've always been jealous of her! It's super cliché but I defo think they make you look smarter! your frames are both fantastic btw!

  7. I think your glasses look lovely! I like to try on the test ones in Specsavers just in case one day I need them... Contact lenses creep me out even just thinking about them xxxx


Thanks for your lovely comments!
