You may or may not know that I am blind as a bat (as in short sighted blind), I tend to only wear my glasses to see the board during my school years and currently in uni. At other times, I am completely hopeless and rely on everyone else around me to guide me through coffee shop chalkboard menus (if in doubt, flat white though). Now cue the judgement.. until last week I hadn't had my eyes checked in 5 years.. YES I know it's horrendous, it's so easy to just book an appointment yet I've been putting it off for the longest time until I've realised wow MAYBE it's time to get these peepers checked. Obviously my eye sight did get a little worse especially in my left eye but it wasn't as bad as I expected and the health of my eyes are still tip top, no dreaded glaucoma diagnosis!

I'd been eyeing up a pair of Ace & Tate glasses (pun not intended) for a while as well as wanting to try out contacts which was the final push in booking that appointment. I do like my current pair of Ray Ban frames but after 5 years, it is time for a change. I thought I'd have a go at Ace & Tate's try on at home service (which is a free service BTW), you choose 4 frames eligible within the service and they send it to you free of charge to try for 5 days and then you just send it back with the included pre-paid postage label! It's a great service especially when not everyone lives in london to be able to just pop into Ace & Tate to physically try on a pair of glasses and pictures never really give an accurate representation. I didn't have much hopes for the frames I chose since I was keen on a completely clear framed pair (wasn't available for home try on) but after trying on finn, I'm kinda undecided?! 


 This Sunday has been one hell of a productive day that started off with a trip to Starbucks for a coffee and getting stuck in by revamping my entire CV. So I've had this idea in my mind for a while now and if I leave it brew in my head any longer I won't actually get it done. As you can tell, I haven't been on the old blog for a long time which some of you may call a hiatus but I call it other commitments COUGH UNI COUGH. I don't have the time to just sit and write long ass paragraphs about my life or how I came about choosing a particular outfit and why I styled it the way I did. So in order to keep my blog alive, I'm just going to keep posting OOTDs (which lets be honest is what most of you are here for) with a little less text; something in between a snappy Insta caption and a proper blog post. A feature I will still keep and that I truly love is the spotify song suggestion at the end of every post. I'm ALWAYS listening to music and discovering new artists and whom I then immediately become obsessed with, so much that I just want to shout it out to the world yano.

P.S I constantly upload all my outfits on Looker (a fashion shopping app available on iOS) with direct links to purchase items that tickle you fancy, it makes it so much easier if you happen to be on your phone and find out that JW Anderson striped merino wool jumper is back in stock and you just need to get it ASAP before it sold out again.
