A visit to the traffic department the other day confirmed a truth I was both completely aware of and also actively trying to deny: I desperately need my glasses. All day, every day and especially at night times.

I have never been too thrilled at the idea of wearing glasses partly because I couldn't possibly imagine how I would do my make up. To make a long story short, I enlisted the help of Twitter to figure out  how to make wearing glasses work for me. Two lovely ladies shared some tips that really stood out for me.

@AnneDolli - "bold lips. It makes all the difference ".

@LadyZaa - "LOTS of mascara. I love it. Also, if you have dark circles conceal them slightly because glasses magnify everything"

So taking this advice to heart, I went out and spoilt myself a bit.

I can't do flat lays to save my life lol.

And then there is this beauty.  Revlon Highlighting Palette in 020 Rose Glow. 

What is your ultimate make up tip? Please feel free to share them to me. I'd love to hear from you.

Denim+ Suede

I love look posts. I absolutely enjoy seeing what other bloggers wear on a day to day basis. If you read my blog on the regular you would have noticed that I don't do too many lookposts. Firstly, its because I have always thought that you needed a photographer following you around. And, secondly, I only like about every 200th picture I take of myself. Nevertheless, I have decided to get over it and just take some damn pictures.

Now of course these are not the professional fashion blogger pictures you are used to but, its a step in the right  direction. I wore this the other day when I was out to run some errands. This versatile stretch denim dress is a favourite of mine simply because it easily transitions from season to season. I paired it with stockings and my favourite suede boots to accommodate the chilly breeze.

Mind you, this was the one day I decided to use public transport. They ended up striking that same day and I had to walk home from the mall.Atleast I was wearing flats during my long walk home. Glass half full I guess.

Dress: Mr Price 
Grey top: Mr Price 
Boots: Miladys
Stockings : Dischem
Choker : Mr Price  (again)
Watch: gifted 

I plan on wearing this dress so many different ways this summer and hopefully I will get to share those looks as well. Any look posts you would like me to have a look at? I'd love to hear from you.

                TILL LATER, LAUREN!
