When I was a little girl I used to love playing with my dad’s glasses, pretending I was my third grade teacher or a high powered executive.
Now that I’m technically “over-the-hill” and everything is just a blur, wearing glasses has become a necessity. Whoever said, “The eyes are the first to go,” wasn’t kidding.
When I look at myself in the mirror I don’t see any lines or wrinkles because, thankfully, I can’t see that far. Occasionally, I will remember that I need to do a little maintenance, like wrangling in the eyebrows. Without my glasses they look perfect. With glasses, it looks like I need a weedwacker.
It used to be that I only needed glasses when working at my computer. Now I can’t read a menu without them. Since I usually forget to take my favorite pair out of my day bag and put into my evening bag, I came to the realization that I need several pairs of reading glasses.
I have a pair in every room and keep extras so I can pop them into any bag I use while on the go. I can’t be without them.
Even when I’m working out.
So when readers.com said they would like me to join their group of Influencers and Tastemakers and name a collection of glasses after me, The Linda, I was thrilled! (This is probably the closest I’ll ever get to having a billboard in Time Square.)
Please check out The Linda collection (has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?!) Finding the right pair of glasses has never been easy for me. I have a long, narrow face. What I love about readers.com is they have styles in many shapes and sizes, buying bathing suits and jeans should only be this easy!
Even though I think I look best in photos that are a little blurry, I don’t want to go through life not seeing crystal clear. Especially when reading the fine print.
