January 2015 | Favourite Products

It’s hard to believe that we are about to cross off month one of the new year on our calendars, yet in the same sentence I always feel like January is one of the longest months of the entire year. So, I was thinking about what to include in my favourites and decided that I didn’t want […]

Fashion | Style Spotlight: Mad Men’s Betty Draper

If you don’t already know by now, I’m a huge fan of the AMC television show Mad Men, seriously I feel like I’m repeatedly marathoning this show. One of the main reasons for my admiration is the era in which it is set, the 1960’s, and the fashion that encompasses it. The ladies of Mad […]

Motivational Monday | Be YOU-nique

Following on from last week’s Motivational Monday post “Pleased to meet you”, where we discussed being considerate to others rather than turning a blind eye to the figures passing us by, this week I wanted to discuss YOU.

Motivational Monday | “Pleased to Meet You”

  After reading the Blogging101 assignment today, I decided to incorporate WordPress’ Daily Prompt into my Motivational Monday post. I was considering the “pleased to meet you” prompt in terms of people that are part of our lives, whether that is for a passing second or a growing relationship over a number of years. It’s plaintive […]

The Versatile Blogger Award

What better way to close this week of blogging than with The Versatile Blogger Award! I’m so flattered to have been nominated for two awards this week, it means that people are actually thinking about or, at least, remembering my blog, which means a huge amount to me. THANK YOU!

Sisterhood Of The World Bloggers Award

Wednesday 14th January, 2014 This is a day to remember on The Girl in Glasses blog for three reasons: If it wasn’t already obvious, I have been nominated for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award, just take a moment to “ooh” and “arrr” at that image. I received a notification on WordPress to tell me […]

Fashion | Golden Globes 2015: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

I wanted to share some of my personal favourite outfits that descended upon Hollywood on Monday […]
