National Selfie Day? Challenge accepted.

So, not only is today Summer Solstice, but it’s also National Selfie Day. Hm. Who knew? Until I got on Instagram and saw my entire feed full of selfies followed by the hashtag #nationalselfieday, I had no idea that was even a thing. I did a little bit of research and found that today is also a list of other “national” or “world” days to celebrate. And since I found this information on the internet, you know it has to be true. Here they are:

  • Anne and Samantha Day
  • Atheist Solidarity Day
  • Cuckoo Warning Day (Does this have anything to do with the previous one?)
  • Go Skateboarding Day
  • International Day of Yoga
  • International Surfing Day
  • National Daylight Appreciation Day
  • National Dump the Pump Day
  • National Peaches and Cream Day
  • National Seashell Day
  • National Selfie Day
  • National Recess at Work Day
  • First Day of Summer
  • The Longest Day
  • World Giraffe Day
  • World Handshake Day
  • World Humanist Day
  • World Music Day (<– My FAVEEE!)

Ok. Well SINCE it’s the first official day of summer and SINCE the weather today in Anchorage currently blows and SINCE it’s National Selfie Day and SINCE I recently got new super cute rose gold frames, I’m going to fill today’s post up with selfies I took this week at Makar, my local eye care place- they have the BEST selection of frames in Anchorage. I went in to adjust my sunnies and ended picking up these gorgeous frames and ordering a new pair of sunnies. 😎

I LOOOOOOOVE THESE! My husband thinks they’re extra but I don’t care. They’re fun and over sized and the frames cover my eyebrows which are uneven (if you look closely, you can see that my eyebrows are crooked. One eyebrow is higher than the other! Okay, stop looking at my brows and just focus on the gorgeous rose gold frames!). I love them so much, here they are again!

You’re looking at my uneven brows, aren’t you? Well stop looking at them and notice that I’m making the duck face. I’m 37 and I made the duck face! Whatever. Ok now look at those gorgeous frames! They’re Michael Kors frames and the style number is MK3018 -for reference if you want to order them at your local eye care place. Or you can get them here for less than $70 and get a way better deal than I did because they WEREN’T on sale when I ordered them. Ugh.

If you’re in Anchorage and do end up going to Makar to get new frames, I highly recommend you see Soo to help get you set up. She’s so fun and stylish and super patient. She showed me her frames that she had in her desk and let me try them on. She called these her “airport glasses.” She said she only wears them when she travels.

They’re pretty cute, huh? They’re Gucci. And let me tell you, I felt Gucci.

Oh what the heck. Here’s another duck face. In the name of National Selfie Day, after all.

I initially went in to Makar to adjust my Raybans because I thought they were crooked and needed adjusting. Turns out, it wasn’t the glasses. IT WAS MY FACE. These dang crooked eyebrows. Soo suggested we swap out the classic Raybans I got from there last month and do something fun, using a pair that cover my brows so that my frames will hide my uneven brows and won’t appear crooked. Ummm GENIUS. So. The first pair she showed me were Fendi and cost just under $400 and, though I loved them, I couldn’t spend that much on them. So she went straight for these almost identical Kate Spade ones and I died.

(Duck face) I COULD AFFORD THESE! After insurance, I only paid $14 out of pocket for these bangin’ sunnies. Holla!

They’ll be ready for pick up in 2-3 weeks.

That’s it, folks, for today. I hope you spend today doing something fun. I’m meeting up later with a girlfriend and her kids and taking my littles to the museum. Hop on my IG story later today to see some videos of us. Happy Thursday!
