Seriously, why are you still using the high street for designer prescription glasses? Shop online and save up to 60%!

It’s a well known fact that shopping online can save you heaps of money, especially when it comes to designer eye wear!  Armed with a smart phone camera, my girlfriend and I decided to do a little fact finding mission and paid a visit to a well known local high street opticians to check out their product line up and prices - Mr money saver himself,  Martin Lewis, would be proud I’m sure!

While the product line up and general store layout was good, and the staff attentive (as you would expect from a well known high street opticians) the prices of many of the displayed designer ... read more

Tour de France 2014: All Eyes on Chris Froome and Mark Cavendish as the action gets underway!

2014 hasn’t been a great year for our sporting nation so far, what with England taking an early bath from the Brazilian World Cup and Andy Murray’s defeat at Wimbledon.  Our attention now turns to a sport we’re actually pretty good at, Cycling!

With success at the London Olympics (12 medals – 8 of them gold!) in 2012, and the Tour de France in 2012 and 2013, our eyes will firmly be on top British duo (and Oakley sponsored) Chris Froome ... read more

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill Rock the Colourful Wayfarer Sunglasses in 22 Jump Street

The boys are back for the follow up to the fantastic 21 Jump Street, in the aptly named 22 Jump Street. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill reprise their roles as the two bungling undercover cops Schmidt and  Jenko and are sent to go deep undercover at a local college – what could possibly go wrong?!?

We’re big fans of the Wayfarer styled sunglasses so it’s great to see Schmidt and  Jenko going bold this summer with some bright red and blue models!  With summer so close I’m thinking of getting myself something a bit bolder and colourful – Are these two underachievi... read more

Cyclops (James Marsden) wears Oakley RadarLock in X-Men: Days of Future Past

Following my previous post about X-Men: Days of Future Past, it has been revealed that Cyclops (James Marsden) is seen wearing a modified version of the Oakley RadarLock in a short scene in the latest movie.  Unfortunately, at this time there are no screen grabs available to show Cyclops wearing the frame (and I didn’t fancy popping the camera out in the middle of a packed cinema to get the shot either!).

This relationship between the X-Men franchise and Oakley stems back to 2000 when Cyclops was first featured wearing Oakley eye wear, equipped with Ruby-Quartz Lenses, to protect th... read more

Google Glass – Hot or Not!

Google glass is being tested by a wide range of people, such as Doctors, Hikers, Teachers, DJ’s and even Zookeepers. At the moment the design looks like a prop for a science fiction movie, however they are looking into implementing the technology on designer glasses. The idea of the Google Glass is to wear it like a Smartphone. Some 10000 people are testing the early version at the moment. So I think ideally those glasses are being made for anyone and everyone. Having said that the initial version looks like a prop for a science fiction movie, as mentioned the designers Ray-Ban</s... read more

Titus Welliver wears Oakley Holbrook in Transformers: Age of Extinction

It’s been a little while for me since writing a movie related blog post (or any type of blog post for that matter!) but seeing the trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction has got me just a little bit excited!

So yes, Michael “I like to blow sh*t up” Bay is back with the 4th installment of Transformers, starring Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, and Nicola Peltz, and it’s guaranteed to be off the wall with regards to special effects and destruction!
