New Marc Jacobs Sunglasses


I love designer sunglasses but being a student, I've always had to admire them from afar as I just couldn't justify spending £100 on something that is more of a want than a need. However this all changed when I managed to WIN myself some on Lucy's give away! Having rarely won anything in my life I was so excited to read the e-mail telling me that I'd won and I had to check it numerous times to convince myself it wasn't just a hoax! 

The frames in question are the Marc by Marc Jacobs 130 Light Havana Sunglasses. I adore them. Black sunglasses can sometimes look heavy on my face, so this lighter brown is perfect for me and I love the mottled effect of them. I never imagined I'd win them so it just goes to show, you have to be 'in it to win it'!

On an exciting side note, I took the plunge and bought myself a DSLR camera with my savings! I know it will be an investment and will last me a long time. I went for the Canon 550D and also bought a 50mm to go with it. These pictures are my first shots whilst I'm getting to grips with all the settings, I hope you like them.

Hope everyone is having a lovely week so far, I did some naughty on line shopping yesterday so fingers crossed I have some more purchases to show you soon!

  4. These sunglasses are amazing!!!! I love anything tortoise shell :) Also congrats on getting a SLR camera, you bought the same one I have but your photos are already far better! I think mine is due to there being no natural light in my apartment though, it ruins everything :(
