Let’s frame that

my face, that is. My faulty eyes.

firmoo giveaway

New glasses. Because mine snapped in half. The day I was going out of town. Wearing my contacts and then glasses (old prescription!!) from college for a few weeks was brutal. My eyes weren’t used to not having the ease and peace of glasses (current scripts, that is, too). I kinda loathe my contacts.

Literally the day my glasses broke, Firmoo emailed me and asked if I wanted to review a pair. They also graciously offered a few things for you, too. Skip past me wearing my glasses, as I do every day, looking awkward in my yard.


Earrings: vintage from my mom.
Top: clothing swap with girlfriends, Max Studio, similar one here.
Jeans: Seven for All Mankind: NEW and they actually fit. Remember my complaints about muffin top? Back in business here with these. They’re on sale here.
Shoes: Cole Haan over here. Bought them as a bridesmaid and loved them ever since!


reverie drift

Dress: hand-me-down from Molly from Three Dots. Similar one here.
Necklace: birthday gift from Molly from Reverie Drift, a high school friend of ours! Hand crafted beauties.
Shoes: Hermes, used from a consignment in Paris available on eBay.

Why is there a scary bug on my arm??

I selected these ones but was kinda wondering about these too in brown until I thought for a second second and realized black looks better for a big forehead & nose like me 🙂 There’s a feature where you can upload your mugshot and virtually try on glasses. Perfect for the mom who can’t leave the house easily like me.

I have never bought glasses online before so I just had to go and get my new prescription from my eye doctor and then awkward I’m leaving now without buying glasses. I was surprised how easy it was to put my prescription in online, and then the frames are easily adjustable once they arrive.

Who wants $15 off classic frames? How about five of you? And Firmoo has 50% off frames for first time customers. Hop, skip, jump over to their site and see what you love. One of the entries is to help me figure out which gift sets to make for a new summer launch. I have so many fabrics I am in love with. So help me out?

    My favorite fabrics are definitely the lemon + night sky set! So cute and practical for boy or girl.

    I love the little piggies and chevrons. Those are adorable!

    • Natural Mama Nell on April 21, 2015 at 2:59 pm

      You’re so sweet. Aren’t those piggies to die for!

  3. Kathy H on April 20, 2015 at 12:59 pm

    Oh I almost said the piggies and chevrons too! But I like airplanes and boys and girls at the beach 🙂 I’m organizing a group gift for a girlfriend and I think a bib/cloth gift set is the perfect thing to give it a personal touch. Love your work Nell!

    • Natural Mama Nell on April 21, 2015 at 2:55 pm

      Those old fashioned airplanes are so fun! You’re too kind.

    Your shop is becoming so much more dangerous now that I’m pregnant again… 😉 It is so hard for me to just pick one favorite, but I am really digging those foxes!

    • Natural Mama Nell on April 21, 2015 at 2:30 pm

      Hahaha you’re hilarious. Aren’t those foxes so cute?
