OK, I’ll admit it – I have a lot of sunglasses. Too many apparently. And I’ve noticed that while I am drawn to the unique, the quirky and the statement pieces I still almost always end up going back to the same 4-5 pair. They’re all quite different to each other, have different lenses and … More Shopping the sunglass trends: Online vs In-store
Time for the truth – Even though I have been in this industry for 17 years now, even my mum still argues this point with me: “Wearing glasses will make your vision worse“ It’s a very common thought amongst people that need or get glasses for the first time, and I actually completely understand where … More Does wearing glasses make my vision worse?
