LIFESTYLE: bullying & specsavers spectacle wearer of the year withkidscape

Bullying happens all over the world to anyone at any age. I honestly thought that when I hit 30 and went back to learning thought that the bullying days were well and truly behind me. Boy was I wrong! 
When your at school I can forgive the girls who made my life at high school complete hell because they didn't know any better they were kids and naive but adults who bully well that's a different story. They know what they are doing and they know the hurt and distress it can cause. 

I was bullied at school because I had braces, wore glasses and lost my dad and brother within 18 months of each other in year 9 & 10. High school was survivable because I had a small handful of friends who stood by me and I'm very lucky to still have them in my life. 

I have worked alongside specsavers on a number of occasions and when they have me information that Kimberly wyatt was bullied as a teenager it really hit home, it happens to anyone and more people than you realise.  She is a wonderful person I have had the pleasure and honour to meet. 

She works alongside specsavers and they do a competition every year called spectacle wearer of the year it's about being proud to wear your glasses and express your style.  For each entry made £1 will be donated to the Kidscape. 
The money raised will help to support them in providing training, support and advice for children, parents, schools and those who may be affected by cases of bullying and abuse in the UK.

To be in with a chance of scooping the biggest accolade in the specs-wearing world, glasses wearers can enter the competition online at

This is a great way to be as amazing as I know all my readers are, I'm 32 and after two years of being bullied as an adult by an adult twice my age, I realise it's not because Iv done something. It's because they are clearly missing something and bullying, being cruel and hurtful is the only way they can express and cry for help because they are deeply hurt and disturbed. 

Love to all my readers 💕💕💕

  1. I experienced adult bullying too - there was a woman at work who constantly put me down, was rude and bitchy and it really hurt me for a whole until like you I realised that it wasn't me that was the problem, it was her. At that point I stopped feeling scared of her and felt sorry for her instead.

    It's great that Specsavers do things like this. :-)
