especially when that someone is saving for a trip.
I recently accompanied our lovely DIL (and our delightful grandson) when she browsed the selection of frames at The Bay.
She got a quote for her prescription and I was surprised...
as it was a lot more reasonable than I would have expected.
I went back the following week and found some frames I liked and the price was about 1/4 of the cost of my last pair so I took the plunge...
Slightly different shape than my old glasses and the frames are black in the front...
silver details at the side.
I can see clearly
Boy can I relate to Nora Ephron when she wrote her book...
I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts On Being a Woman.
I don't pay much attention to my neck other than to apply moisturizer...
you know that saying "out of sight out of mind."
Keep slathering it on...
Sunscreen and moisturiser every day
salve and serum at bedtime.
I am not overly concerned about looking older
It's not like a frown or worry lines are in any way flattering.
Smile with gratitude and choose happiness.
While I am showing you the new Guess glasses I might as well show you my newest frock....
It's nothing fancy but I like the shape.
A fitted Banana Republic dress..
kind of flirty.
V-neck and back...
you might need to squint to look at these next photos!
I wore this sweater with a black swing skirt, fishnet stockings and black leather boots.
Mother loves this top for some reason and always compliments me when I wear it.
As it happens I wore this OOTD when I took her out for some shopping and an early dinner.
My hair was windblown from the gale force winds on my walk...
I am wearing my old glasses in this shot.
I apologize as these two images are rather foggy...
I posted this image recently on Instagram...
I love the brilliant cobalt blue of the berries with the autumnal leaves.
Nancy Horan's new novel is on my bedside table and I have been reading a few chapters each day.
If you wondered why my posts have been sporadic lately it's because
French class is amping up in it's intensity
the homework has increased
I am finding I need to devote a lot more time to my studies...
It is a challenge and one that I fear I will not win without a serious and dedicated effort.
Learning a second language is not as easy as driving a car or trying a new recipe.
I wish it was...
I've been listening to the French radio station, watching movies with French subtitles and listening to French DVD's.
A bientot mes amies.
Hotesse de l'humble bungalow.
(I could not figure out the "circumflex" keyboard code required for the O in Hotesse)
Merci pour la lecture de mon blog.
Etre Bien et etre Gentil.
(Circumflexes should appear on top of the "e" in etre)
as you can tell it is a steep learning curve!
