Noelle La Fea

Up until last Saturday, I looked like this:

I feel pretty and... you know the rest of it

Today, though, I look like this:

Noelle La Fea

Why the change, you may ask? (And it’s a pretty drastic one to transform from Andy Sachs of The Devil Wears Prada into Betty la Fea.)

I got green colored contact lenses for my birthday last July and had no problems with them until October, when the left lens suddenly developed a deformity on its curved surface, irritating my eye. I got a replacement for it, but the same thing happened three weeks later. I got a different kind of colored lens (same brand though) four weeks ago, but the problem reoccurred. Frustrated, I decided to give contact lenses a rest. I also needed a new pair of eyeglasses, so I went out and got these. Supposedly, dark-colored thick plastic eyeglass frames are the in thing this year, but God help you if you are ugly girl you are prone to making silly faces or have a naturally goofy grin.

I’m giving up on the colored contact lenses, but I’ll have new clear disposable contact lenses by next week. Meanwhile, my officemates, family, and friends may enjoy having Noelle La Fea around. I don’t mind getting laughs out of this look. Ü I can always show them that I can look like this (read more about this picture at the Man Blog):

    BTW, the Man Bloggers are evil! They posted the image using ImageShack! Oh noes, it’s now publicly accessible and linkable!

    (Still deciding whether that’s a good or bad thing.)

    Noelle, You’ve known for the longest time that we ARE EVIL. But I always thought that’s why you love us. Anyway…nothing to feel bad about having a great looking pic of yourself floating around freely in cyberspace.

    Also, the glasses don’t look half bad. The goofy faces are actually great. Few things are hotter than a girl who can be silly about herself.

    Thanks, Adam.

    Xtina, the brand I’m having trouble with is Flexwear. The first pair of contact lenses were the one-year kind, the second pair were the six-month kind. I’m thinking of trying Freshlook when my finances have rebounded to their previous non-poverty level. Ü

    Oh I’m digging your eyeglasses, Noelle! I love it!

    *Disclaimer: I have one that looks almost the same. Hehe.

    Dear, if that’s how you feel, then what hope is there for unpretty people like me? =)

    Charles: You are not unpretty! ๐Ÿ™‚ And actually I’m just making fun of myself. The new eyeglasses aren’t half-bad; they give me that studious, genio air that I’ve been lacking lately.

    Ade and Steel: I’m sorry, Noelle isn’t available to take your calls right now. Please leave a message after the MWAHAHA!

    Ellaine: Let’s make it a point never to wear our eyeglasses at the same time, okay? Hahaha. Ü

    i was trying to comment on this a few days ago, but beta blogger didn’t seem to like my blogger version. anyway, just wanted to say that i like wearing eyeglasses myself, especially when i don’t feel like sticking a foreign object (i.e. my contact lenses) into my eye. ๐Ÿ™‚ So no more colored contact lenses in favor of clear contact lenses? I say, “Good choice!” ๐Ÿ™‚

    So YOU’RE that girl from that pic! Well, not that I’m staring at it every chance I get for several days now. I’m just curious.

    And oh, I think glasses can make a girl look sexier. For proof, you can do another version of that Man Blog pic with your glasses on. Then we can compare. Haha!
