FAB FIND: DAISO JAPAN's Eye Glasses Fit (Ear Hooks)

I'm loving my new OWNDAYS (a Japanese eye shop brand) glasses.  They're durable and stylish and definitely does the job well.

My home-wear pair is great, has withstand abuse and misuse these past 6 months.  My going-out pair?  Let's just say that the design has its pros and cons.

My rimless frame OWNDAYS glasses

My going-out pair is a rimless beauty that I had fitted out with Transition lenses (read my last post about OWNDAYS in this here link).  The frames are made to weigh as little as possible, mainly to let the user feel like he/she isn't wearing any glasses at all.

I'd say in that aspect OWNDAYS did deliver (in a way).  Whenever I wear this particular pair, I don't feel the weight or strain on the bridge of my nose.  However, I am still made very much aware of my glasses as, also because of its light weight, it keeps on slipping down my schnoz, especially in the afternoons where I tend to do most of my walking/exercise (the sweat adds on to it slipping down).

So what's a girl with slipping glasses supposed to do?  Google for the solution, of course!  In one of my caffeine-fueled internet binges, I stumbled across a brand called WedGees.  It's basically a pair of small stoppers that you slide onto your frames.  These things "wedge" themselves behind your ear, holding on to your frame which helps stop your glasses from slipping.

Now the only problem is availability.  Even here in Singapore, these WedGees are just too new (?)/too novel of an item to have readily available.  I did see a few online shops selling them but they cost too much!

My salvation came with a trip to "the best store evah!" -- DAISO JAPAN.  And it was amongst their endless array of merchandise that I was able to locate this Eye Glasses Fit

DAISO JAPAN's Eye Glasses Fit (ear hooks)
The name sounds off, I know (Eye Glasses Fit?); but basically, they're ear hooks.  Slip it on your glasses and adjust accordingly to fit snugly behind your ear.

Instructions

And it works!  No more glasses slipping on my nose!  And the best part?  Only 2 (approx Php68) bucks!  Whatta a find!

Fitted on

I said it once, and I'll say it again.  THE BEST STORE EVAH!

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
