Little Miss Dork and Her New Eyeglasses

Happy New Year, everyone! How's your 2013 going so far? Did I just say 2013?! It really feels weird whenever I realize what year it is now. I oftentimes even find myself still mindlessly writing/saying 2012. Is it just me? But I'm trying my best to get the hang of it, same way as I'm trying to get used to wearing my new pair of prescription glasses. New year, new look it is. ^_^

Yes guys! Finally got myself a pair of eyeglasses because my nearsighted eyes have been giving me such a hard time already (and my man was so nice to give them to me as a gift last Christmas). It's black, simple, somewhat square-ish, and Prada (still can't believe he loves me that much). This is my first time wearing glasses so I can't help but feel kinda dorky to be honest. Still couldn't muster enough courage to post a photo of myself wearing them here. I tried but ended up deleting it before hitting publish. Hopefully it would grow on me soon so watch out for my photo! Haha!

Choosing them took longer than I expected. I wasn't sure which one to take with the many colors, designs, and brands available. Had to browse way too many eye glasses online and in the stores before deciding. There were so many cute ones I wanted to get at first but all thanks to my chubby cheeks, most of them ended up looking otherwise when I tried them on. So much for my plan of looking like this adorable little cat:


An important piece of advice, friends: Just because the glasses looks awesome on display or in the catalog doesn't mean they would look just as awesome when you wear them. Getting the glasses frames that flatter your face's shape best is key. I had to find out the hard way that rimless glasses don't look nice on me. Again, try them on first before buying!

If you're planning to buy new glasses or just simply curious to know which type of eyeglasses suits you best, this Virtual Mirror feature of GlassesUSA.com would come in handy for you. It's such a cool feature, I'm sure you'll enjoy playing around with it. Try it, it's so much fun!
