And The Winner Is...

Carbondale Chasmite! What a name!

Brooke and Summer picked their 10 favorite commenters (based on their answers and the number of outlets that they shared the Warby Parker message). We put those 10 on sheets of paper and randomly picked. Carbondale Chasmite, who made his comment to give his wife another chance at winning, was the lucky duck.

Carbondale's Comment:
"My wife reads this blog... and loves those glasses. Gotta be a good man and get her another shot... though I wouldn't mind a pair myself. :)"

Great job, your comment paid off! Email us at thegwgshow (at) gmail (dot) com, with your wife's prescription and address!!! We look forward to hearing how she likes them.

This is one of the most fun videos we have gotten to do. Even though the week we were there NYC had a record breaking heat wave, the energy of New York kept us going and feeling energized. We had a great time enjoying all of our favorite places including: Central Park, Strawberry Fields, Ice Cream at the Odeon, Statue of Liberty, Soho, The Village, Time Square, etc. What are your favorite places in New York City?

Dallas Shaw at DNKY

We had been fans of Dallas Shaw's work for years. Summer even featured her in one of the first ELIZA Magazines. It was exciting to get to meet her in person and chat about her new project with DKNY on twitter. The DKNY store was so big and bright--had a great vibe to it.

"Where did you get that adorable little blue pen necklace?" or "What is that head band hair thingy you were wearing?" you inquire? We've been getting loads of questions regarding those must have items we featured in our "how to pack a suitcase" and "the carry on" videos...

Well, Ask and ye shall receive...

This beautiful Kate Spade bag has a name of it's own... "La Casita Josephine" AKA Summer's dream bag. This isn't technically a "carry on" but it is a perfect bag with loads of mini compartments to store all your little travel odds and ends. PS... it's on sale!!

If you are the kind of gal that is always losing your writing utensil then we have found a solution for you, a completely adorable solution we might add! This cheery blue pen attached to a dainty gold chain can be found in a Kate Spade store near you!

In addition to the fabulous items above, you can also find this striped umbrella that is ideal for keeping your lovely locks dry at a Kate Spade store on online... By the way, we love stripes.
Are you loving those plastic orange or blue frames? Perhaps Love is an understatement... how about we're obsessed! We've got more to show you from this ultra hip AND affordable AND charitable eye wear company WARBY PARKER...

Ever try to wash your face or apply make-up and your hair keeps getting in the way? Maybe you've tried the headband...probably still end up with a wet hairline right? The tassi can end all your troubles. Brooke, her mom and sister has been using the Tassi for years, as she grew up in a house right next to the inventor. Once you try this clever little invention, you'll never wash your face with out it. Oh and the best part is that it doesn't mess up your hair...

Summer swears by the Clarisonic, just take one look at her face and you'll be a believer. It is a little electronic contraption with swirling bristles that scrub all your make-up and grime away leaving your face ultra clean. It is a bit pricey, but you would consider it an investment in your skin. Constant travel will take it's toll on the appearance of skin, so proper care is necessary!
Flat hair, Oily roots, no access to a shower? Try Dry shampoo... works wonders on a second, third... dare we say fourth day hair do's. There are several brands making dry shampoo, Brooke's personal favorite is Pssss which is super cheap and can be found at your local drugstore.
This is another splurge... it's pretty fancy stuff, but if you are looking for a powder to wipe away signs of facial fatigue induced by a sleepless red eye flight, this is the one. It is soft as velvet and the color never looks fake or too pinky. As well it has a built in SPF 15.
That not so fresh airplane cabin air doesn't do your skin any favors, you might notice that it begins to feel dry and tight after a long flight... Dermalogica makes some fantastic toners that will help to re-hydrate, refresh and calm your skin.
Wouldn't it be wonderful to live in a world where everything was travel-sized... what an adorable world it would be. The tide to go mini pen is travel size and fits perfectly in your purse, so you'll be ready for those moments when perhaps you've hit some frightening turbulence and your tomato juice spills on to your fancy sweatpants.

Whether you are running through the airport or walking down the boardwalk, a pair of "june bug" Sanuks are both ultra comfy and stylish, as well they don't take up much space in your suitcase. Oh and one other tip, don't forget a pair of warm socks for the airplane, the toes get chilly!

In The Heights With Corbin Bleu

The Girls With Glasses interview Corbin Bleu of High School Musical and broadway hit In The Heights. If you haven't seen Corbin as Usnavi, you better hurry, this is his last week in the role!

This Week Only

Corbin Bleu captured our hearts in the worldwide sensation High School Musical. Until August 17th you can see Corbin perform In The Heights on Broadway. Brooke and I were able to see the show live and it's worth it. Corbin is such a big talent, it would be sad to miss his version of Usnavi, the Washington Heights bodega owner! Below is a sample of the show.

Inspired By The Girls With Glasses

We are thrilled to get positive emails and even more excited by the cute things people make and share with us. We want to feature two Girls With Glasses Show viewers today on the blog.

The first is from Emilee Sutherland, the owner of Esty shop Tastful Tatters. She made these charming little glasses necklaces "inspired by the infamous idol star Brooke White and her new show, The Girls With Glasses Show."

Second is Antonia Ormston who wrote to us saying " I love your theme song 'I am a Girl.' My three little girls love to watch your video. My eldest who just got glasses feels very cool now."
And she included this heartwarming picture of her three girls.

Thanks to everyone for your support and well wishes. We hope to continue to bring you inspiring content. Send us an email (the GWG show (at) gmail (dot) com) if we can share how you are inspired by The Girls With Glasses Show.


Although "being a trainwreck" is not what we are known for, in these shots we are looking like we are about to cause one.
