Musings: Wearing False Eyelashes When Your Wear Glasses

90% of the week I’m in glasses and a top-knot as known as what I’d like to call ‘Dusty Char’. Wearing lashes on a day to day basis isn’t usually my forte, I prefer to save them for the weekend when I wear contact lenses.

I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
