What happened to the weekend?
I guess that is what happens when you work in the service industry 

Speaking of work, 
one of my coworkers/friends Jordan came out with a new song as part of the group Nightseason.
It is called Strangers, and I am OBSESSED.
It has been on repeat. 
Check it out to become addicted too...



You know it is already on my Spotify 2018 Jams Playlist:

Spectacular Sunday :: Francis Klein

I love this post by glamoptometrist on Instagram,
& a HUGE shout out to Dr. Arian Fartash 
for being nominated as the "most influential women in Optics 2018"
such a cool honor! 

& I totally agree with this quote post from Vera Wang 

This week's Spectacular Sunday is featuring Francis Klein
I first found Francis Klein at the Loft Eyewear Show in 2017
and fell in love with their fun glasses + leopard print {of course!}

& they just have so many beautiful frames, here are my favorites:
1. & 2. Can't find the style names/numbers anymore... 🤔
8. & 9. Can't find the style names/numbers anymore... 🤔
11. Can't find the style name/number anymore... 🤔

Really love these peacock frames too!

+ this limited edition pair is so cute!  

I love this circular shape and gems! 

SO MANY BEAUTIFUL FRAMES! 
This was at the Francis Klein trunk show at eyecandyopticianry:

So let me get this straight, 
I write a personal fashion blog, mainly about how much I love eyewear, 
and lasikistanbul on Instagram feels the need to comment this BS on my Instagram:

That was all I could muster after how moronic that (probably) robotic comment was, 
Oh I would look "much more cool without your eyeglass" 
Was I suppose to say, "OMG really?! Let me fly to Turkey to get lasik?" 

🖕🏻🖕🏻

Why would I want lasik when glasses like this exist?!

Faves for Friday :: singer table making my heart sing!

Sometimes you just need to call on your best friend to meet you in the middle of nowhere 
to pick up a vintage Singer sewing table you bought on Facebook Marketplace...

I ended up getting it for $80! 
 I am so happy my big Amanda helped me pick up this beauty, 
I am obsessed, seriously.
Every time I walk past it I squeal. 

& picked up these AMAZINGLY PERFECT knobs at Hobby Lobby.
The floral ones were $1.99 each + the hand in the middle was $2.49!
I also got that fake plant on sale for $5.99!



Maggie is unfazed:

Arnold is a fan:

Meanwhile... Barry is a sleepy pug:


+ then I walked in on a "striped friends" meeting...

Clearly not invited...

You know someone is your best friend when they help you pick up a piece of furniture 
and then say "Let's get ice cream".
We stopped by White Dottie for some soft serve! 

Such a cute place!

& my Big Amanda got a "medium" that was the size of her head! 

& she got me this awesome blue floral cross from her trip to Texas for my collection! 
It is perfection!

Back in the New York Groove


I love walking around midtown Manhattan to New York Groove by Kiss,
except when my phone lies to me and tells me it is going to be 81 & sunny 
and ends up being torrential downpours...


So did I have an umbrella with me? 
Nope. 
So prior to leaving Penn Station me and 100 other unprepared people 
had to stop at Walgreens to get an umbrella, 
naturally I got a leopard one because why not...

Even with the umbrella I decided to take the red line down down instead of the recommended orange line, got out and got on the orange but took the wrong letter until the robot conductor said "next stop Brooklyn" and I thought "OMG GET OFF NOW".
So I proceeded to run/walk to my meeting through the Lower East Side

Had some drinks at Delicatessen which had amazing bathrooms and a private bar downstairs
What I Wore: glasses- Faniel, necklace- AxelHoney, top- Target, pants- Old Navy, flats- Modcloth  

On the way back to Penn Station I spotted this girl rocking this pug print top:

Came home to my parent's pup Stanley who was staying with us while my parents were away,
he has grown into such a handsome pup, 

 Also with the purchase of my leopard umbrella,
 I found this super cute graduation Hello Kitty card with glasses! 
I had to get her and hang her up! 

I love that I hung up my cap and added 2/3 of my tassels from my 3 post high school graduation,
still looking for the one from my Bio bachelors degree... 🤔

I also hung up this "Dream Big" card that I got from my FIT graduation

& added this "Go Change The World" card from my gradation party, 
love these on my gallery wall! 

But really... is time to go change the world...
BRB.

"Good Summer Vibes"

- Charlie's motto for how awesome summer is so far, 
and I can't help but love that. 


What I Wore: glasses- c/o Zenni Optical, lips- YSL "Rogue Volupte Shine 62K300", necklace- Hunt & Orchard, necklace- Spike The Punch, dress- Target, flats- thrifted, bag- vintage Coach {thrifted}



Perfect patriotic outfit for a BBQ at our friends the Mahoney's first annual party!

Seriously could not have asked for a better day! 
The weather was incredible in their shady backyard 

I really wanted a picture of the BBQ sign with Renee's pup Zero but, 
like our bulldog Maggie, 
he was not having it. 
But I did get these super cute pics:

& Renee posted these super cute pics on her Instagram {@reneelynn1234}



Had so much fun hanging out with my friends/coworkers from Vault, 
as Renee always says "Beer really does bring people together!"

Renee also had a photographer for the BBQ and the pics came out so good!













Such a fun time!

After a weekend away from this fur baby, he was all cute and sleepy...

& when he went upstairs, I thought nothing of it...
lucky me. 
Or should I say he is lucky he is so cute.

Charlie is bringing in the "Good Summer Vibes" as he says,
I love this little flower that he picked and put in the bathroom,
instantly made me smile: 

& more good vibes with all the Thai ice teas that Charlie makes me! 
I have been addicted since our trip to Thailand in March...

I loved this paint swatch that I found at Home Depot:

Seriously thinking about taking my Thai ice tea obsession to the next level 
& painting my whole house this color...
