Colour Psychology in Fashion: What Does the Colour of Your Glasses Say About You?

The clothes we wear and the accessories that we choose to adorn ourselves with are much more than aesthetics. As someone who has worked in the fashion industry for a long time, I believe that fashion isn’t frivolous. It’s a part of who we are. It’s art. It’s life. And it’s self-expression.

When Mary Quant invented the mini skirt in the 1960s, she told the world that she wanted to create a fun style that allowed women to “run for the bus”. She changed lives with one single statement, liberating women everywhere. Since then, women have felt more open to use their clothing

The Perils of Winter Wear

 It’s winter again.

The rain and the snow. The worries for our sights.
Will we fall and break them,
Will we lose our vision as the sleet stings our faces and covers our lenses.
Take them off. We can see better although squinting as we go.

As we put our hand over our brow.
Stopping the snow and the rain from distorting our vision. As we battle with the elements.
Manoeuvring around with our big boots and warm coats.

Many a times the frustration as we wipe them clear to see. As we walk or work outside.
As we search for a solution. What do we do?

How a Bookworm Can Benefit from Good Reading Glasses

For many of us, there are few experiences that relax and satisfy more than sitting down somewhere comfortable and getting stuck into a book.
