Google+ That Flour Child: March 2016

Firmoo Eyewear


I have worn glasses since the age of 3.  I have a very strong prescription and have genetics to thank for that.  I've had gone through many cycles of loving glasses and hating them.  There is something so exciting about getting a new pair of glasses but after about a year I tend to get a little bored of them and start to look for another frame.  This can get quite pricey, especially with my prescription being so strong.  An alternative I've fallen in love with recently is wearing my contacts and purchasing affordable frames with no correction in them from different shops.  This is a great way to test out frames and mix up your style frequently.

One of my favourite online shops is Firmoo.  They have great eyeglasses as well as sunglasses to choose from.  And you are able to add prescription if you need to.  I love the case my glasses came in, it is decorated with a map of the world.


I went with these frames in the Tortoise shade since I find black frames a little harsh on my skin tone. The lenses are a little larger than I was expected but a good tip is to measure frame you currently own (if you have any) and compare their measurements on the site.  Since I ordered these to try something different I didn't mind that they were a little oversized.


I really want to order some fun sunglasses for the summertime from Firmoo.

Erin Condren Planner and Etsy Sticker Haul

I think I have fallen down a very slippery slope.  I was first introduced to the #planneraddict lifestyle through a close blogging friend of mine, Ashleigh from Murdock Talks.  Since then, she has won me over with her beautiful spreads and has even started her own sticker shop (more on that later).

Etsy Shop Launch - Chunky Knitted Blankets


I have exciting news for all of you!  If you have been around my blog for a long time you will know that I once had an Etsy shop.  Well, it has had a face lift and now includes chunky knitted blankets.  I absolutely love knitting these and gave many away for Christmas gifts!


You can find my shop at www.etsy.com/shop/OneBrokeStudent!


I kept my original shop name (which was also my old blog name) because it is very near and dear to my heart and still applies since I am a Master's student.


There are 3 different sizes of blankets to choose from and all are available in 7 different colours.  These blankets are so soft and cozy and every time I knit one I always debate keeping it for myself!


Hopefully you guys will enjoy them as much as I do and will share them with your friends and family!


Once again, the link is www.etsy.com/shop/OneBrokeStudent 
Feel free to go check it out :)
