Hi.

Welcome to my Design Diary! I am so excited to connect with you & share my design & lifestyle adventures!

Finds: I Can See Clearly

Finds: I Can See Clearly

My friends! How many out of you out there wear glasses? How many of you out there wear glasses proudly? I’m sad to say I was a closet four eyes…for too long! Not anymore, though. I’ve partnered with Clearly.ca to show you some of my favourite glasses that you’ll want to wear day and night – and at such an affordable price point! They have some incredible options (including name brand) in glasses, sunnies, for men, women & kids! 

When I was younger, I used to have to sit close to the chalkboard at school so I could read it, and the teachers used to ask why I didn’t wear glasses. For me, it was completely vanity related. I didn’t want to be known as the “girl with the glasses”.

When it came time for me to make a big move to the Big Apple, I forced myself to become brave and attempt contact lenses. Let’s just say, we’ve been thick as thieves ever since. But as my days grow busier and my travel schedule from island life to city life becomes more a reality, my eyes just can’t take it. By the end of the day, I’m yearning to curl up with glasses and a good movie (I think Diane Keaton in Something’s Gotta Give is my spirit animal).

No longer are the days that glasses are embarrassing (at least for me), and as I look around me I see so many of my peers, friends and family wearing the coolest glasses, they almost become a part of their “look” and make such an excellent statement! Maybe it is just an age thing, or maturity level, where I am comfortable in my own skin, but I’m also always looking for new ways to re-invent myself, while sticking to my classic roots!

I’ve partnered up with Clearly.ca for this post to show you some of my favourite looks for wearing your four eyes loud and proud! Their site is mega awesome, and it also helps suggest glasses that would suit your face shape. You can also plug in your measurements from a previous pair of glasses, just located on the island arm of the frames. In my case I’m more of an oval face shape, and once I plugged in my measurements of Lens Width, Bridge Width, and Arm Length, all my “matches” or recommendations appeared. Super easy to use, and incredibly affordable! The best part? They offer you buy one get one free for glasses! Because what is better than one pair of new statement glasses? Two pairs of glasses!

I love all the Tortoise frames, I'm wearing the Calvin Klein version, because you can't go wrong with a beautiful bold and classic look. And my new blush pink frames from Kam Dhillion are my feminine go-tos, they add a softer look! I love being able to have a pair on the go and a pair by the bed for when it's time to call it a day and curl up! 

And trust me, you’ll have a difficult time choosing which two you love the most!

Here are some of my faves (honestly, too many to list!):
