New Glasses & New Hair

Choosing new eyeglass frames is one of those things you have to depend on the person at the eye doctor's office to be helpful.  I have worn glasses for over 15 years and I have NEVER picked out my own frames.  This last visit is no different.  But the ladies at the office were so much fun!  They picked out so many I forgot which were which but they kept going back to the same pair.  Since I couldn't see a thing I went ahead and went with their choice for me.  I LOVE them but....... my kids keep meowing at me!  They say I look like the cat lady!

My previous pair were Coach and I had them for over 6 years.  They were practical and they matched with mostly everything I wear.  I would love to have a few pair but I'd have to get a good paying job for that!  My new frames are from Tura.  I like that the lenses are larger so now when I'm hand sewing I don't try to look under them. 

It was also time for my hair appointment and I wasn't liking my hair with the new glasses.  So I suggested I go shorter.  My hair stylist agreed and chop, chop, off more hair came.  I know it's her job to cut hair but she takes care of me.  I tried to grow it out one time and I think it almost killed her! I hate to say I do color my hair (every 4-6 weeks) but I have A LOT of grey and she doesn't like me in my natural grey state.  I don't mind it but she says it ages me.  But we both agree on the length.  I do love some short hair! 

Here's my new glasses and my new hair do.
