Looking at cacti in my office one will come to the obvious conclusion. I am getting older.

It is either because I am so forgetful or because I cannot see well anymore that I managed to kill plants that survive in the desert. Or maybe they just don’t like me.

Well I decided to investigate. I made an appointment with our local ophthalmologist to see if I am loosing my vision. Better that then loosing my mind right?

While I waited for the appointment I kept myself busy finding the cutest and most fashionable eyeglasses. I wasn’t going to go for cheap eyeglasses, but I wouldn’t spend a fortune on them either. I mean I have a shoe addiction and a workout clothes addiction already and having to wear glasses would surely result into me having an eyewear addiction.

Who knew buying prescritpion glasses was this easy? I visited, a great online store ( cause you know I never leave the house in order to buy anything, not even milk! ). They have the neatest feature: Virtual Mirror.

I uploaded a photo of myself and tried on most of the frames they carry. I really like glasses that give me that ‘nerdy’ look. And I loved the red frames. And the ombre colored ones. Luckily they always have great offers going on. Last week was 2 for 1, this week is 50% OFF. Because you know it is impossible to make a decision. I mean really, I could not have chosen just one pair.


Last Wednesday morning I saw the doctor and had a full eye exam. Turns out I still have a perfect vision and I overwater my cacti.

But for you my friends in the market for new glasses I have a fab coupon to take 10% off your next purchase from GlassesUSA. Just type in Blog10 at the checkout.

And please send me a photo of your new frames. I think I might have developed eyeglasses addiction anyway!

    Ha ha ha. I like looking for decent frames and have been using an online company for years. It’s so easy and painless. Looks like GlassesUSA works pretty easy too. And stop over watering your cacti – they’ll thank you. :)

      Someone left me a comment that a mother cannot keep cacti because we love them too much and spoil them with water 😉

    I am in the process of trying to get new glasses. I’m not sure if I can use an online company tho, with how complicated my Rx is. But this does look cool.

      You should contact them and check. I looked around a bit and you cannot beat their prices. And I know that you input RX at the end of your order and there are options on what glass you want too. What kind of frames are you thinking of getting this time?

        I want glasses that I will actually LIKE, that might even be flattering on me. Wish me luck!

    Stasha, I really like how you look in the red frames! Really, you look nice in all of them, except the white. White frames are tricky. I also always look at them when choosing frames and decided they just don’t work on me. Maybe its the fair skin or my face shape. PS I can’t keep any kind of plant at all.

      i hear you. White is nearly impossible. Unless you are Paloma Picasso ( not that she wears glasses but I bet she would rock them!)

    so funny, as always. 😉
    I go back and forth from wishing I needed glasses because I think they are so cute and hip to being glad i don’t.
    I’m sure the day is coming, and then I’ll just want to be able to see again. :)

    I love the red Jones NY ones on you! If you ever lose your vision, you’ll be stylin’. Also, thanks for letting us know about that site. Those are great prices. I may have to get a pair! 😉
