Girls Who Wear Glasses

Posted on and Tagged Nearly Neutral Fashion Statement with bebe glasses from VSP Direct

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of VSP Direct. I remember when I first found out I needed to wear glasses. I was 12, and I was NOT happy about it. Twenty years* later, I now find it ironic that the main reason I didn’t want to wear glasses was because “only nerds wear glasses”. These days I wear my nerd badge AND my glasses with… Read more

Posted on On turning 29: my year to belong

This post was originally posted in a series on I just rediscovered it. It was written 3 years ago. As I’m approaching yet another birthday, I’ll be evaluating what “this is my year to ____” might be for 2014.
