I can see clearly now...


la la la...my new glasses came. Yes, I was supposed to get new glasses ages ago, but I didn't see any I liked in the optician. Then I found this site, glasses crafter which has thousands of really nice glasses, really cheap. They're made and shipped from China, and I know, with some products, people hear "made in china" and immediately think cheap, bad quality, but as they point out on their website "Shanghai...where over 90% of the world''s eyewear is made including designer brands like Oakley, Gucci, Prada and Ray Bans" I really think the quality is fab, they seem really great, I'm really happy with them. Ok so you can't try them on before you buy, but they show various angles on the website, and the saving is seriously worth it. It total, with shipping, prescription lenses and all, it came to £33. In any optician on the high street, the average would be £70. Last time I went to the optician they reduced my prescription...apparently my eyes have got better. I'm not sure about that but I'm tyring to get used to the new lenses.

I seem to have perfected the art of looking weird in photos. I actually look like I'm trying to pose for those, 'looking into the distance, oh! whats that?' glasses adverts.

Those glasses are fantastic. It is my dream to have a glasses wardrobe...all with my prescription of course. Your blouse is very cool too.
