So this is what I do with my life. No not (just) drink wine but ...Glasses. I started working for Specsavers in April this year and have loved it ever since! I'm applying to study optometry next year and love the fact that it combines science-y stuff (vision, health, blah blah), actual human interaction (something my previous career choice was SORELY lacking..more on that later) and also a bit of fashion in terms of frame styling.
God I sound so optimistic it's depressing.
So anyway. I have been lusting after some other brand's glasses (GASP!) so I thought I would share my findings with my vast (?) blogger audience. So for all of you myopics, hypermetropics and presbiopics out there, these are for you.

 Kate Sylvester - sneak peek at Oyster Magazine, being released in Feb '12. So exciting, so forbidden.

Warby Parker's. Not only are these GOD DAMN cheap, but they have a heart too, with one pair of specs donated for every pair bought. They really are great people those Americans. But they don't ship to Australia. So they are terrible. Also, you can enter your own script which really scares me. 
SHAMELESS. Jeff Banks at Specsavers. I am lining up to get these specs next.
These are my current favourites. Karen Millen

I also stumbled upon this little gem... these are only the screenshots. The commentary makes it so much better

 You. Are. Welcome.

Instagram is an amazing invention. It makes it so quick and easy to edit your photos with filters and tilt-shift and then share it within a really amazing community.

This song is about how Justin the lead singer was set up on a date with Amanda and he was just completely blown away by her. What I would give to be set up with him... or her for that matter . . .
Blonde, brunette, old, new - I am infinitely jealous of this girl.

But hey, I was in a vaccines video too...

at 1:33 and again 1:57 - my obsession with instagram somehow pays off

As you can probably tell already I'm not the most avid photographer, using instagram as my camera. So I thought I'd ask you what you think are some good and affordable cameras out there.

I have limited experience so anything point and shoot is definitely more my avenue. I've also been considering analogue and film cameras just because I feel as if it is more definite and physical than digital prints. Also it's a bit more exciting to wait until it gets developed. The diana lomo seems alright and I've found this package here. Thoughts?

Also feel free to check out the clothes available at my vintage store a path less travelled.

a selection of my favourite images from the rag and bone diy project, which I'm sure you're familiar with. Models were given the opportunity to photograph rag and bone pieces themselves with no makeup, no stylists, just their cameras.

My favourite has to be Miranda. But I loved Karolina Kurkova's collaboration with Helena Christensen.
