Do Something Good
Since I talked about the "get one, give one" model with Warby Parker, I thought it was appropriate to share this brand that's doing the same! State is teaming up with The Skimm to hand out backpacks to American children in need. How do you participate? Easy, just buy a backpack! State has some really cute options and they're starting to make me think I need a second backpack...

Until this past February, it had been at least a good 10 years since I last bought glasses. My prescription had changed and I was in need of new glasses, but since I wore contacts, I kept putting it off. When I found out my vision insurance would cover a new pair of glasses, I knew it was time to look.

I can't resist companies with a mission behind them, so I knew I was going to visit Warby ParkerFor every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need. Could it get any better than that?

They have a store in DC, so I chose to visit that location, but I also toyed around with the idea of trying their Warby Parker Free Home Try-On's option. If you haven't heard of their try on option, it allows you to choose 5 pairs of glasses to try on. Warby Parker sends them to you, you pick out what you think looks best, and then you buy that pair. If you don't find anything, then no problem! Send it back and you won't get charged.

If you don't need glasses (lucky you!) don't worry, you don't have to miss out on the fun. Warby Parker sells sunglasses too!

Have you shopped there before? Would you try it out?

When we last spoke, your job was Attorney, how has your role changed since (if it has)?

I am still an attorney, but in January I made partner at my firm. To be honest, this sounds a lot fancier than it is - ha! I still work on the same cases and basically have the same exact role.  However, this is going to change over time - now I have to focus more on bringing in clients and marketing, and over time my role on my day to day case load will become more supervisory.
