Wow! I cannot believe it has been nearly a year since I attended the Specavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year Awards (SWOTY) and if I hadn’t have gotten a reminder today from the PR I would have completely missed it. It is happening next Tuesday as in 7th October!!! I have been so busy lately with a few deadlines to meet plus trying to get issue 7 of the MGAM Magazine ready for print. If I am honest I totally forgot we are in October already. It really did just slip my mind and I cannot believe it because normally I look forward to the event, it is like one of the most important eyewear events in the calendar (along with 100% optical – hehe!)

Thank you to the PR for reminding me, it really is much appreciated! I now need to think about my outfit and most importantly my GLASSES!!!! Which pair to wear is the question because lets face it, it’s an event celebrating glasses so I must rock up in a rather cool pair of specs. A lot of rummaging through glasses and outfits is needed this weekend. I have got a pair I REALLY want to wear which I bought from Hong Kong but I still need to get them glazed up so I am not sure if that will be do-able.

SWOTY 2014

SWOTY 2014

Either way I am very much looking forward to it and this year as you can see, Kimberly Walsh is the celeb face of SWOTY. I am also looking forward to seeing who wins the award for the best spectacle wearer (there are four age categories). As per usual it is Gok Wan who will be hosting the show. Be sure to follow me on Twitter, instagram and facebook so you can check out what is happening on the night.

If you are getting excited like me then this is a reminder of what happened during last years awards. Very excited to attend again and must start some major outfit and glasses matching mayhem.
