Hey everyone, I got glasses! February 2016 is the month where I’ve changed basically everything in my life. I AM NEW TO EVERYTHING. New hair, new job, new face.

I’m reinventing myself, you see. Kind of. Maybe not.

A few weeks ago, I was at Hayley the Tea Party Beauty’s house when I robbed her glasses and put them on. Because I’m totally the type of person that if I see something I can put on my head or face somehow, then I’ll put it on my head or face.

So basically, I’m a child.

But a miracle happened. I put them on and I could see clearly!

I’ve always prided myself on having perfect vision. Apart from that one time when I was 8 and I tried to fake an eye test because a girl came to school in glasses and I thought it looked cool so I decided I wanted some.


How I knew I needed glasses

Early in 2015, I was snowboarding with my housemate and I couldn’t read a sign on a wall. My housemate could and she casually mentioned that my eyes must be bad if I can’t see it. I didn’t think much of it because I just thought it was far away.

It wasn’t until my Pretty Little Liars obsession kicked in that I realised I had a problem.

You see, I don’t usually watch TV because I am basically the internet. We are one. Flicking through the TV guide, I was struggling to read the information on my 32-inch TV. Also, whenever the characters got text messages I could barely read it. I would actually pause it, take a photo on my phone and read it that way. I still wasn’t sure if it’s because the TV was far away or poor quality. Or I was just tired or drunk or both.

But when I put Hayley’s glasses on, it all clicked into place.

Going for an eye test

I booked myself an eye test the next day and went into Spec Savers where I kind of felt like I was on a conveyer belt. Who knew that the opticians were like this? There were so many staff working and I kept getting passed from one person to the next. I had to look through a thing and focus on a balloon. I had to give them my details. I had to see the optician who changed the lenses faster than I could tell him if it was better or worse or the same and suddenly I could see all the letters on the screen.

Then he took the funny glasses off me and everything was blurred again.

Then I had to see more people and one of them blew air in my eyes and it was the worst thing in the world. I told the woman who did it I was never coming back.

Then I had to see more people and pick my glasses and they took photos of me wearing the glasses with an iPad and told me to come back in a week.

Getting my new glasses

So I came back in a week and then women sat me down and got me to try the glasses on. She asked me if they fit okay and I was like I don’t know. Then she started touching my ears and I was not a fan, of this as I hate being touched, especially by strangers. But she kind of smelt nice so it wasn’t the worst thing in the world.

But still, do not touch me.

Then she kept asking me if they sat right on my nose and I was like I don’t know what I’m doing here, you tell me. So she figured it out for me and bent them a bit.

And now I have glasses.

My life is now in HD. It’s beautiful.

Also yeah I had to photoshop the sunglasses because it had a reflection of my bed which was a mess and I didn’t want you all to know I’m a slob. Even though you basically know now because I just admitted it. Good job a lot of you just look at the pictures. Loool 😀


And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the story of how I got glasses. What are you up to this weekend?



  1. I remember the first time I got glasses, about 5 years or so ago now, and it was like someone had just switched all the lights in the world on. I knew I was struggling a bit but I didn’t realise just how blind I was until that moment. Even though I loved being able to see, I went through this whole self-conscious phase and would only wear them when I really really had to, i.e there was a risk of death if I didn’t. It took me about 2 years to get out of that phase but now they’re on my face 24/7, yes I’m the dick who occasionally even goes to bed in them, normal haha.

    Your glasses suit you so much! And the best thing? You can see ALL the drinks behind the bar now 😀

    Sarah 🙂

  2. Should have gone to Specsavers 😉 – you did! My eyesight is pretty blurry without my glasses. I’m meeting up with quite a few friends this weekend and trying to get fit

  3. You look fab!! I remember the first time I put on my glasses, I was 14. I remember telling my mother that I can actually see the leafs in the tree and she was nearly in tears. After nearly 20 years (gosh I’m old) I couldn’t manage without them.

  4. There is nothing wrong to reinvent yourself and find what makes you happy love both sunnies you rock them doll. Have a great weekend.

  5. You look fabulous! Beautiful glasses!! I wear glasses too, only during the evenings, during the day I wear contact lenses

  6. The way you write is so fun! And getting glasses is simultaneously so fun and so..horrifying? I think that’s the word. But you look adorable, so that’s all that matters!


  7. At least you got some glasses! It’s much better than straining your eyes attempting to see. Bonus points since it’s also a new accessory! :]


  8. I love both on you, Corinne, you look great, like a sexy, naughty librarian. I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 11 but thank goodness my eye sight never got worse and remained the same until today despite me rarely wearing my glasses.

  9. I remember when I got my first pair of glasses, it was about two years ago and it felt like I could actually see clearly. Mine though are only when I need to look at things from a distance, mostly for driving.

  10. I’m unfortunately the kind of peerson who’s guilty on needed to wear glasses and not wearing any at all. Not that I think I have a perfect vision, but I’m always too lazy to clean them and it’s a process that gets the best of me. But I am glad that it took Hayley for you to realize you had poor vision. Sometimes having them on just to read helps. And as someone who’s behind the computer alot, I know how worse by the minute our vision gets!

    You look beautiful with both glasses on babe!

  11. Ha, love your sneaky dig at the “You just look at the pictures!” – I always have mess in the background of my photos- tis part of me! I need some too, so much is blurry- I had an eye test and needed some but never got around to it!x

  12. I’ve had glasses since I was about 8 years old when I casually told my grandmother I couldn’t see if cars were coming so I just guessed when to cross the road. Funnily enough, she booked me in for an eye test the next day! What started out as glasses for long distance have become glasses for all the time as my sight is deteriorating all the time. Your new glasses are similar to my current ones in shape. Mine are a navy ish blue though! 🙂 xo
