Face of Today: Spectacles Galore & Super Smiles.

Without my glasses or contact lenses I can barely see anything at all & I've lost count of the number of times people have asked me why I haven't gone to get laser eye surgery yet. I happen to really like wearing glasses and I love being able to make a statement with them hence my love for these frames!


Over the last couple of weeks I had been gradually losing my love of blogging but just as those super negative feelings were beginning to impact too much on the decisions I was about to make, my faith in everything good was restored by such a beautiful and truly wonderful lady! Kate is probably one of the nicest people I've ever known & I wish that I knew her in 'real life' because I have no doubt that she would be an amazing friend! There aren't many people that would buy a birthday present for a complete stranger and I'm completely over the moon that she thought of me when she saw this.

How completely adorable is this necklace? It's so me and I would have purchased it in a heartbeat for myself if Kate had sent me the link. I can't believe she actually bought it for me, it was ridiculously generous of her to do that and I think she's so lovely. She's the definition of a good egg!

Although it's probably a bit ironic to say this on the end of a make up post, Sailboat is no longer going to be solely a beauty blog, not because I dislike the community because I absolutely don't, I still think it's amazing, but because that's not just what I'm about and I'd love for this little piece of the Internet to reflect all of me a little bit more. If you don't like what you see then you're always free to click the unfollow button, that's completely okay! But if you'd like to stick around then hopefully the next year will turn out to be a pretty exciting one!

I hope you all had a lovely long weekend! What did you all get up to?
xoxo

  1. Those glasses are awesome :) as is the wee sailboat necklace.

  2. You need to be happy in what you're doing, and you'll probably find that people like you all the more for doing more of your own thing. Looking forward to reading more of your posts, beauty and non-beauty!
    Oh, and that necklace is gorgeous. There are some absolutely fab people in the blogging world :-)

  3. I'm exactly the same with the contacts/glasses! And people always ask me, but honestly if I got laser eye surgery I'd end up having to have glasses with plain glass in them because I just LOVE wearing them so much! :)
    Oh Kate is SO lovely! What a cute necklace :)

  4. That is so nice of her! I'm really glad she turned your mood/feelings around. If you lost your love of blogging and left, I'd be really sad to see sailboat go.

    I like your spectacles. =]

  5. I'm so glad I've found some-one who agrees with me on the glasses front! I wear glasses almost all the time, and I'm constantly asked why I don't get laser eye surgery, which is ridiculous. I like glasses! xx

  8. Your glasses actually look really nice! I wear contacts fulltime, except for today when I'm wearing my glasses, and I find it preferable to the concept of having lasers fired into my eyes! x

  12. I was sick! Not alcohol related I might add.
    I need to get glasses soon, these really suit you! I shall definitely be going for some quite bold. ;)

  13. Oh, I adore your face and your little necklace! That blush is perfect on you, and the lipstick is beautiful too! Always love your posts, you have this dreamy quality I've never been able to capture :) xx

  14. I love your glasses!

    I too am pretty much blind without my glasses and get asked about laser. I think it would be okay, if it didn't involve shooting lasers at your eyes! It freaks me out a bit. Luckily, I like my glasses. Adorable necklace as well! :D

  15. Aw, blogging has restored my faith in human kindness to some extent (highlighted negatives in others!)

    I love your glasses, random, but do you have any experience of ordering frames online? x

  16. They look amazing on you! Sometimes wish I had to wear glasses for the shear fashion factor haha xx :o)

  17. I personally hate wearing glasses and have been wearing contact lenses for years now. Some of my friends don't even know that I have glasses! ;) X



    P.S. Don’t forget about my giveaway!

  18. Likeee! Like the glasses and it's true, they completely change a person's face. I have been wearing glasses too (for the last half of year) and wonder how I've lived without them for 24 years :D

  19. Your glasses are adorable and you pull them off so well! Will definitely still be reading your blog and have enjoyed all the non-beauty posts.
    This weekend, I spray painted my bed frame "antique gold" because I was bored of its white Ikeaness, and it turned out great so I'm super happy! Except for the fact that my lungs feel like I've inhaled many, many gold paint particles which I guess isn't that great. Have a great week!

  20. I think glasses really suit you! I have to wear mine all the time (I can't wear contacts) and I sorta like them now so it's nice to see someone else who feels the same!

  21. Jennie you look gorgey with your specs on. I quite like wearing mine too, I don't think I could ever get laser eye surgery but that's because the thought of it is terrifying to me! And I happen to love that your blog will become more you, it only makes me want to read it more :). xo

  22. beaut! I wear glasses, only occasionally though, too and you suit them a million times better than me!

    and aw, what a nice little gesture from kate. the necklace really does look lovely on you.

    excited for your more 'you' posts,
    xo

  23. Love those frames, they look great against the pretty, natural make-up. I really need to get some new glasses that I feel happy wearing in the outside world. x

    ReplyDelete
  24. I have similar glasses to yours :) I actually like wearing glasses too, I hardly ever wear my contacts.
    Your FOTD is super pretty. That lipstick is a pretty colour, I'll definitely be looking out for that next time I'm in Boots!
    That's so sweet that Kate sent you that necklace. The sailboat charm is adorable and I love the tiny cutout heart :) xx

  25. Your glasses are adorable! I am dying to have poor eye sight (horrible, I know) so I can get some cute classes and not be a poser!

  26. Blogging is about sharing what you love, and I think it's more important to be happy and enjoy what you're writing about, because otherwise it just will show through at some point. Best of luck to you as you start sailing you blog in a new direction! :) I'm excited to see where you'll end up.

  27. Those glasses look great on you! I am a glasses/contact lense wearer but glasses really don't seem to suit me!

    Love the little sailboat necklace, beyond cute and a very generous gift :)

  30. Aw what a cute necklace! How lovely.

    I would never in my LIFE get laser eye surgery done. It just sounds so freaky! Plus I like having the choice between glasses and lenses.

    Exciting to see what you're gonna be adding to your blog!

  31. I am the exact same way! I adore wearing my glasses; people always think they must be an nuisance, but I think of them as an accessory. Yours look fabulous! :]
