Peace, Love & PEEPERS Reading Glasses!
Everything is a little more humorous through the eyes of an innocent child. I found this article posted in Canada’s Chilliwack Times Online yesterday and got such a laugh. Some elementary school age children were asked what life would be like if they were 100 years old. So take a few minutes out of your day for a good laugh! Below are just a few-ENJOY!!
“When I’m 100 years old, I will still have my video games, a small car and go out for dinner. I will not be able to ride a bike, skateboard or scooter or have a radio. I’ll name my kids Bob and Harry and have a house with four rooms. I’ll wake up at 1:20 in the morning and go to bed at 7:30, and get breakfast at 1:30.”
Jett Thomas, Grade 3
“If I lasted to 100 years old, I would have a cane and a pair of glasses too. I would have grayish hair and I would barely even be able to walk.”
Cole Mayes, Grade 2
“When I’m 100 years old I will watch lots of football. I will not be able to jump or play Wii. My back will hurt a lot. I will get my robot servant to buy and get me food. I will eat a lot. It will be fun. I will make a book company called Orange Inc. I also want to be an astronaut. I will have a pet turtle and I’ll keep my pet Wags. It will be a lot of fun.”
Landon Johnston, Grade 2
“If I was 100 years old, I would quit dancing. I would have a dog. I would have a cane maybe. I would take walks and I would have sleeps and maybe, just maybe, I will have glasses, and my hair will turn gray. And I might eat tuna–yuck!”
Jordyn Zutter, Grade 3
What could be more adorable than a good looking woman in a great pair of sunglasses? A good looking woman AND her precious daughter in great sunglasses, that’s what!
Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo and lovely daughter, Stella in NYC last May. I’m a sucker for babies and couldn’t believe how sweet this little one was!!
…Just kidding!! Everyone seems to be a little giddy about the upcoming marriage between Prince William and Kate Middleton. With the wedding being just a few hours away, I guess I’ll have to admit that I’m a little excited myself. After watching coverage on every major news channel for the past week, I thought I would do a little of my own. Here are my favorite glasses-wearing celebs from across the pond-Enjoy!!
Mr. John Lennon
My very favorite
Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter
Can’t believe I found a picture of him smiling!!
Check out that sweet hat!
And, of course, I saved the best for last….
PIP PIP CHEERIO!
While browsing around on the internet I came across this article, ‘What is the Mom Dance?’ by Donna Cavanagh and I couldn’t help but smile. Having recently become a mom myself, I enjoyed reading about all the wonderful things in life I get to look forward to that come along with aging and motherhood. Below is an excerpt:
“While I was visiting at my daughter`s college apartment, my daughter and her roommate were telling me how they took their other roommate`s mom out to the bars for some dancing and college decadence. I was laughing along with the girls up until my daughter started to describe how this woman danced in the clubs. She called it the Mom Dance.
I was a bit taken aback and asked, “What is the Mom Dance?” At that point, the two girls stood up and started to sway in place at a brisk speed. Then they swung their arms back and forth simultaneously snapping their fingers.
Insulted by this little demonstration, I said, “Who dances like that? I don`t dance that way!”
“Uh, yes you do. All moms do.”
Though I’ve already become a big fan of the ‘mom jeans’, I have yet to worry about ‘mom heels’ or ‘mom glasses’…and we’ll just leave the granny panties out of it for now, shall we?
Here’s to hoping my rad dance moves have a while before they fade away! And when that dreaded day comes when I’ll have to pick up a pair of reading glasses, I’ll be sure they’re the most fabulous specs out there!
Katie Couric is arguably one of the most famous faces wearing glasses these days. Try turning on the radio and not hearing about what career move she’ll be making next! Take a look at her wearing these fabulous gender neutral frames:
WE LOVE IT!! Check out our very similar style: 134-Enviro Hip -An ultra-cool bold frame with bamboo arms and with a price point of only $21.00 you can’t beat it!
We received this email from one of our overseas customers, who, clearly just can’t get enough of her Original Peepers!:
Just a quick line to say Thank You for sending me my new specs.
After a little mix up with delivery note, they arrived as usual, safe and
I had had an identical pair for a long time and everybody knew
who they belonged to, so they wouldn’t be lost for long, until
I visited friends in Milan and unfortunately left my specs in
the restroom while waiting for a flight home.
As soon as I got back I ordered another pair from you.
Once the delivery note was sorted out , you sent a replacement
straight away. I am a very happy bunny.
I work in the customer services dept. in a large out of town retail store
called Marks and Spencer. Every day the customers ask me where
I got my specs and I give out your www. site.
Well done and thank you again.
Thanks Chris! We always LOVE hearing how much our customers enjoy our product! Check out Chris’ specs-810-Fruit Striped Gum
Considering that one of the hot new trends in eyewear and reading glasses is vintage, there’s a site (and possibly others) that are interested in buying your older glasses (not beat up old…antique old ) One site in particular http://www.oldeyeglasses.com/ is interested in everything from frames to spare parts. So try your luck on this site and get a quote! Nice way to recycle and refresh your look!
If you’re in the mood to change up your wardrobe, accessories are a great and affordable way to update. Ran across an article on what’s hot in the eyeglass world/reading glasses and came upon 4 fun trends; Geek-Chic, Military, New Neutrals, and Gem Stones. Dr. Kerry Pearson, Optometrist with Pearson Eyecare Group , says glasses are an accessory and you need to make sure the frame styles also accentuate your face. Below is a link to the full article:
