Choosing New Glasses with Warby Parker

This post is in partnership with Warby Parker. All opinions are bloggers own #ad

I have been wearing eyeglasses since I was a toddler, and finding a pair is really important to me. Glasses are a part of my identity. I wear them every day, so they need to represent who I am.

Growing up I never wore my glasses because I hated the way they looked. For me, a trip to the optometrist left me in a bad mood because none of the options looked great, making me settle on a pair I wasn’t in love with and cost too much money.

Enter Warby Parker, the brand I discovered my senior year of high school. I bought my first pair – and my sunglasses – and have never looked at another eyewear brand again. Now, nearly five years later, I am back in the market for new glasses. Luckily Warby Parker has been here for me and was able to recommend a few pairs they thought I would love. Here are what they suggested for me:Read More

Nerd Post #6: Glasses

It’s another Nerd Post! Yay! *insert children cheering here*

After such a long nerd-free period, I think we should dive right in with the nerdiest accessory known to man. Glasses.

These are the glasses I'm upgrading to.

I wear glasses. I’ve worn them for 12 years. I’ve gone through periods where I love them and periods where I hate them. I have love/hate relationships with lots of things.

Currently I like my glasses. I have terrible eyesight in my right eye, a result of Amblyopia. I could try contacts, but the two of us DO NOT click. So my glasses and I have a long-term relationship going. And as seen on What Happens in Vegas, when you’re stuck with someone, they end up growing on you.

Whatever your case with glasses may be, wear them proudly. Show that you’re proud of your nerdiness. Don’t back down to those who have huge NO GLASSES signs And when someone calls you four-eyes, I give you permission to punch them where it hurts 🙂
