    Fashion Eyewear Celebrates Earth Day

    What is Earth day?

    Since 1970 the 22nd of April has been marked as Earth Day. This year, the organisers of Earth Day are calling for three days of climate action from the 20th of April to the 22nd of April, but often people mark the full week as a time to talk about the environment and the issues we face. 

    The first Earth Day was founded by Gaylord Nelson in 1970 Nelson to highlight the importance of clean air and water in California. This attracted 20 million people to take the streets in solidarity with environmental issues.

    BOLD GLASSES FOR ZOOM CALLS

     

    For most of us, the words Zoom, Meets or Teams have become an all too familiar addition to our daily vocabulary. For most of us are working from home,  where we spend most of our time - hanging out on video calls with dodgy wi-fi and struggling to hear what everyone is saying.  As working from home is now the new normal for many of us, so is loungewear, messy buns and no makeup, but I think we can agree, we are all getting sick of looking the same every day. 

     

    Here are a few tips on how to look like you have made an effort while working from home:

Although some recurring trends have been carried through to the Spring/Summer 2021, we invite with open arms the newest trends like the oversized statement frame! Lockdowns, however, we do not. 

    After all, it is only January, and you might not be thinking about Summer or getting a new pair of sunglasses to go with it - but don’t be fooled. Sunglasses are not only a summer accessory, the winter sun can also be blinding! Stay ahead of the SS21 trends and wear your new shades now. 

    Trends to watch this year are geometric aviators, retro styling and tinted lenses. This year is led by timeless silhouettes and, of course, the ’70s - we haven’t given up on that era yet.

  12. What Are Bifocal Glasses And Are They Worth Getting?
    What Are Bifocal Glasses And Are They Worth Getting?

    Bifocal glasses have lenses which are split into two parts, accommodating two different prescriptions in one lens. The upper portion of the lens is for distance vision. The lower portion of the lens has a different prescription, usually for near vision.

    Why are bifocal glasses worth getting?

    Bifocal glasses are worth getting if you have two different prescriptions because they can accommodate both in one lens so that you can easily switch between the two.

    For example, wearers can use the distance portion of the lens the majority of the time, then quickly switch by looking through the bottom part of their lens for near-sighted activities, like looking at their phone or a computer screen.

    This is more convenient than having to switch between two different glasses constantly.
