new glasses?!

... I got new glasses!!


I don't really wear my glasses every day all the time anymore as I wear contacts. But whenever I'm at home and on the laptop I will wear them as I don't want to damage my eyes. Even though I have been quite bad and not worn my contact lenses as often as I should be, oops. My eyesight hasn't been affected by it though and my prescription is the same so yay. And seeing as my other pair are years old I thought I'd treat myself to some new ones. They're a lovely brown/tortoiseshell colour and are Ralph Lauren (ooooh hello). I'm still getting used to how they look as they're very different to what I'm use to but I like them. They need to be adjusted slightly though as they don't sit on my face right but other than that they're great. I bought them at Vision Express and even got a 'free' pair, although they don't have my prescription in as that would have been extra money, so they're just a back up incase something happens to my main pair, which I hope nothing does happen.

Anyway that's enough of my face for one post! And guess who's finally finished their Christmas shopping?! All I need to do now is wrap them up and post some cards nearer the time. And on the subject of Christmas, I really don't get how people can prefer Winter to Summer, Christmas is the only good thing about I think. It is absolutely freezing at the moment. I need to drink gallons of peach tea to keep me warm, so I hope everyone else is staying warm!

christmas jumpers

Gingerbread Man Jumper - New Look

Sorry for the lack of posting in the last week, I've been really busy with work but now that I've got a routine sorted, I'll be straight back to the blogging. So apologies and thanks for sticking with me. I don't know if I've mentioned this before but I love gingerbread men, some would say on the obsessive side aha. Even though I'm not someone who normally wears Christmas Jumpers, I saw this at work and knew immediately that I had to buy it and guess who has this beauty in her wardrobe?!

This isn't a sponsored post by New Look or any of the others I've posted about for the matter, I do work there after all so can you blame me that I've found so many nice things to buy? But I thought on the theme of Christmas Jumpers, I'd show you some of my favourites. And some others I've seen on the High Street, but I won't go mad, the Gingerbread man one is the only one I'm having, it will be my pride and joy. I've also included some for Men's as I don't know about you, but my dad and brother are ridiculously difficult to buy for. I've only just started my Christmas shopping too, every year I say I'll finish it by October, I'm not the only one am I? When in reality, I don't start until mid November and surprise surprise, that is exactly what's happened this year, oops. And you can't really go wrong with a Christmas jumper. So I hope I've helped at least someone out with an idea.

Polar Bear Jumper - New Look / Reindeer Jumper - New Look / Gingerbread Man Jumper - Topshop / Robin Jumper - John Lewis

Elf Jumper - New Look / White Reindeer Jumper - Next / Green Reeinder Jumper - Topman / Navy Stag Jumper - Topman

As you can see.. there is another gingerbread man jumper out there, but I'm going to be good and like I said, have only one. But it does give me an idea for a new post, so keep your eyes peeled.
