Throw Out Your Reading Glasses and Start Dating!

Can’t read restaurant menus? Maybe you need reading glasses. Yes, it happens to the best of us.
In tales of vanity, reading glasses make you look 100yrs. old, so you hide them but are forever doomed to order the daily special!

It’s another beautiful day in Paradise, Las Vegas. I am an empty nester.
I mean the nest is empty, really. The husband is gone and even the dog died, RIP faithful friend.
I am living alone for the first time in ages, a newly single woman after many years lived as a married one. I am finding that life is sometimes weird in new ways.
Case in point: the whole dating scene. Here in Vegas it’s interesting because the city attracts so many transients. I go to meet ups that I organize through an online travel community, attend local business networking events, peruse dating websites and belt out a tune or two at the local karaoke bar. My social circle includes lots of interesting people from various backgrounds. I try to be as much of my true self around others as possible.

To ‘be’ your ‘self’ you must first ‘know’ your ‘self’, right? Well I think I’ve figured out a few things about my’self’ and one of them is that I HATE to be seen in public in reading glasses! (Too ‘self’ conscious!) And I hate, when on dates, to have to pull them out. But I’m all but blind to read anything without them, so what to do?

Well the most fun thing I’ve done recently was something I really never thought could even make me smile.
About the time I started needing to wear reading glasses, Lookie Lous reading glasses hairband was invented by Kelly Coty of Nashville and I started wearing them. Thank goodness I could toss out my old reading glasses and still see the fine print. All while looking sexy at the same time. Bring on the dinner dates!
Before I discovered Lookies, I used to struggle and squint or get young children to read for me. If I was going out to eat, I’d call the restaurant ahead of time to know the menu so I wouldn’t have to try to read it once I got there. Now, I proudly wear my Lookie Lous readers. They are so unique everybody wants to know where to buy them. What a cool uni-sexy ‘readerband’ alternative to traditional reading glasses.

So even if the weirdness of dating remains at least the challenge of old lady reading glasses is resolved, so it’s off I go.
Now throw away your reading glasses, get some Lookie Lous and go get yourself a date.

Have a beautiful day,
from Paradise, Las Vegas

The Short Story of a Long Road

I like to wear my Lookie Lous 's around my neck!

I like to wear my Lookie Lous around my neck!

My name is Kristie Layne and I talk a lot.
Just ask anyone who knows me or any of my former teachers. I am the kind of chatterbox who either gets in trouble at school for talking too much or gets her own talk show. So, I will use my skills as Chatty Cathy (remember that doll?) to try to brighten your day with a kind thought, inspire you to look your best (wearing Lookie Lous of course) and inform you about trends in fashion and optical care news.

I’m originally from Las Vegas and live there now. Yes, there are people who really are from Vegas! hehehe… My grandmother came here when my mother was a small and my son lives here too, so I guess we are going on four generations. Las Vegas is a great place to live, where life is affordable, lots of friends and total strangers come to visit and there is an endless stream of things to do 24 hrs. a day. Growing up I had a horse and a best friend and that’s who I spent my free time with.

I lived in Mexico for a year as a small girl and as a grown one I have also lived in Paris, NY, LA and backpacked for a year through southeast Asia and recently spent a year in China. I will spare you adventure stories, but needless to say that these are beautiful life changing experiences. I feel strongly about the benefits of traveling to get the best look at the world we live in and the different cultures and peoples living in it. I have traveled to 36 countries and have many more yet to see.
Speak of ‘seeing’ and my thoughts turn to Lookie Lous readerband reading glasses (which BTW are GREAT for traveling!)

As you age and font size gets ever smaller, there is a need for reading glasses. Even more for some that you can actually find when you need them and referably some reading glasses that don’t make you look 100 years old! One pf the reasons why I love Lookie Lous sun readerbands. Sunglass reading glasses are something I use a lot at the pool or at the beach to read books or magazines. In the summer I often keep my hair off my face with hairbands, too. I am just too self conscious to wear ‘magnifying’ reading glasses. Before Lookie Lous I would prefer just not try to read (no matter how important the subject was) rather than to pull out dowdy old reading glasses. Even rimless reading glasses don’t cut it! The best reading glasses to me are INVISIBLE! And that’s why I love, love, love Lookie Lous: they are almost ‘not there’!

If you or someone you know need reading glasses or likes fashion eyewear, BE HAPPY! You too can wear Lookie Lous.

So you ‘see’ how beautiful life is? You can sing a mean karaoke, look fabulous AND read the titles in the song book (happy face).

And instead of getting in trouble for talking so much, join the ranks of the bloggies.

Hello and welcome to Blog Me Baby One More Time
I hope we will become fast friends!
