It’s that time again and it’s hard to believe we only have 10 days left of 2017 and what a year it has been. Working in Optics has really opened my eyes (pardon the pun!!), but seriously, it has DEFINITELY opened my eyes to how important your eye health really is. Here are 3 New Year’s resolutions that everyone should follow, whether you wear glasses or not.
1. Look after your eyes.
After all we all get one set of eyes and they are one of the most important senses of the human body. Many people set resolutions to lose weight or exercise more but do not forget your eyes. Sight tests do not just clarify whether or not you need glasses, but can detect many problems with your health before you receive any symptoms. Get your eyes checked! Get your children’s eyes checked and make sure you rest those peepers.
2. Be Yourself.
The most important resolution in my opinion. This doesn’t just relate to your eyes but with everything you do. For me, glasses are an everyday necessity; there isn’t anything in my wardrobe other than glasses that I keep on all day, every day. Dress and accessorise your look with a ‘who cares’ attitude and confidence and don’t be afraid to make a statement with your glasses. Spend less time worrying about cleaning your lenses (as Nikon have a dirt and grease repellent coating) and spend more time enjoying them!
My personal faves for the winter season.
As Tweed is one of Chanel’s key materials to use, we now have this oversized square pilot optical frame which is Chanel’s newest take on tweed, known as the ‘boyfriend tweed’. It is a look of tweed by using imprinted metal across the top of the frame on the double bridge and also made with acetate. It has the classic CC logo on the sides of the frame to keep it as minimal yet effective as possible.
3. The Power Of Sunglasses
Not only are sunglasses everyone’s number one accessory but they protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. Why are sunglasses just considered for summer? They are needed all year round, the sun comes out every day as much as we don’t notice that.. If you're not daring enough with your optical glasses, then be daring with your sunglasses! They instantly make any outfit look cooler.
Throwing it back with the DiorLia, the classic 70’s inspired aviator style with a modern twist. With the classic CD logo on the sides taking it back to Dior’s roots. The gradient colours running through the frame making it different from all the rest, however using versatile colours such as brown, green and grey that will go with every day looks. As proven the Dior Lia will upgrade your outfit to another level as it’s bold yet with subtle colours.
DiorGaia and DiorBianca are also from the same collection offering the gradient colours with a transparent effect but in different shapes but all being the oversized sunglass of the season.
Update your style in 2018, try new things and make statements. Life is for living so do that wearing our amazing eyewear, as it is after all... #allabouttheeyewear
