Select Your Specs!

I haven’t been wearing glasses that long but I do know how hard it is to find cute specs at an affordable price…especially online. There are lots and lots of online shops that claim to cater to prescription glasses wearers but honestly it’s such a hassle when it comes down to it.

This is where SelectSpecs comes in.


SelectSpecs is an online store that pretty much caters to the glasses wearing community. They offer adorable glasses and sunglasses at an affordable price so naturally I had to try them out. Previously, I had two pairs of glasses, one tortoise shell frame and an identical pair in a black and gray tortoise shell print. Upon logging onto their site I was a bit overwhelmed to be honest.


I played it safe and went with a lighter tortoise shell frame, a bit smaller than my current frames yet still nerdy chic. The frames I chose were the Savannah in Demi Havana glasses and are you ready? The frames were under $14.00, $13.42 to be exact.

They are absolute perfection.

Including my prescription and all of the little perks that are kind of a must have when you purchase glasses like anti-reflection, scratch resistance, and lens thinning the price was the same! Color me impressed! After delivery and tax my grand total was…



It didn’t take long for my pretty new specs to arrive but when they did I immediately fell in love. They come in a small, but sturdy plastic case complete with cleaning cloth and they were as adorable in person as they were online!


I’ll be honest, I really expected them to be flimsy glasses; for under $25 I figured it was going to be one of those “you get what you pay for” situations but honestly they’re just as if not more durable than my $150 pair of glasses plus they’re a lot more comfortable.


Basically I’m obsessed.

Whenever I take my contacts off after work I grab my SelectSpecs glasses. They’re so cute and so comfy and they fit my face perfectly without any adjustments! I love them. If you’re in the market for new glasses or even sunglasses, do yourself and your bank account a favor and head on over to SelectSpecs easy, fast, and efficient website!

Eat, Drink, and Body Merry!

Remember those body butters that Bath and Body works makes? Body Merry is like those but even better! Through amazing luck I was able to try out not one but TWO Body Merry creams and an eye gel, of course because who turns down an eye gel, amiright?

I’m pretty pleased.

Body Merry

Let me back up a bit first.

Body Merry creates luxurious skin products at an affordable price with natural and organic ingredients. Personally I prefer any skin product I’m using to be organic because honestly you don’t want a ton of chemicals on my skin…you only get one skin. Don’t mess it up. Sometimes chemicals can do that, especially if you have incredibly sensitive skin like I do.

Stick to organic…trust me on this one.

Out of the three products I received to review, I really loved two but I think it’s because I’ve tried out so many eye gels at this point that I’m just like “Meh”. The two products I really fell in love with are the cellulite defense cream and the stretch mark and scars cream. Both were incredibly thick yet soft at the same time and they smelled like heaven. The cellulite cream smells like eucalyptus and while I don’t have cellulite I do believe that prevention is key. I’ve been applying the cream every morning and night after showering and like I said I don’t have cellulite but everything does feel a bit tighter if that makes sense?

The stretch mark cream is like lathering on shea butter which I really love. You can really smell the shea and cocoa butter as soon as you open it and it is delightful. I’ve been using the cream for a bit and I have noticed that the stretch marks I have…yes I too have stretch marks, have lightened a bit. I’m not saying the change was overnight because I’ve been using my cream with the same frequency as my cellulite cream and so far, so good!

Overall I’m going to give these products and 8/10 only because I wasn’t too impressed with the eye gel! The one thing I do like about Body Merry eye gel is that unlike the other eye gels I’ve tried it includes vitamin E which I use on my skin pretty frequently. You can really feel the difference between this particular eye gel and the others and honestly I think it’s the vitamin E!

Fall In Love With Lilly!

So I think I’ve finally gotten all of the Lilly Pulitzer I wanted from the After Party Sale?


And naturally I’m going to share every single piece with you.


I delayed this post for several reasons, the major one being I didn’t want to post my APS haul until I found everything I wanted. Think Michelangelo sharing the Sistine Chapel when he’s only halfway through with it. I just wasn’t okay with that! Now that every colorful piece is officially mine, I’m ready to share/obsess over it with you.

So buckle up.
