FOUR EYES EYEWEAR - The Visually Challenged Deserve Better

I'm part of the generation who grew up with the connotation that eyeglasses are dorky and should be left to the nerds. I remember some of my classmates getting picked on because they need to wear glasses, so kids like me who just need to correct a minor vision issue either never wore one or only wore one at home.

Back to the present, eyeglasses have evolved and is no longer just a necessity, but became a fashion and style statement. It's now a cool thing to wear glasses! A lot of brands took notice, and came out with fashionable pieces that'll cater to the style savvy. The downside? It also got more expensive to get one.

Then one company thought, the visually challenged deserve better. :)

Four Eyes PH is the first online optical store for prescription eyewear in Asia. They provide designer-quality frames and lenses at a fraction of the retail price. They offer prescription, non-prescription, computer glasses and reading glasses. All their eyeglasses costs Php1495, and they offer FREE shipping.

The perks of choosing what frame best suits me is really easy on Four Eyes' website. They have a VIRTUAL TRY-ON feature wherein you can upload your photo and "try on" glasses and see how they will look when you're wearing them. Pretty cool, right? It's like playing dress up with your paperdolls or Barbie dolls, only you're using your face. ;)

Don't have a webcam / photo available? No worries. They have this really helpful and efficient filtering system wherein you'll indicate your preferred style, shape, material, color and size of eyeglasses. I got to choose my own pair using this system because the Virtual Try-On wasn't available then. It was pretty simple for me. I wanted a black large plastic frames that'll suit my round face. The system gave me several options, and I chose Street Beat. They have styles for men, women, and unisex (just like mine).

If you're hesitant about the filtering system and the Virtual Try-On, then the Home Try-On Program is for you.

The Home Try-On Program (only available in the Philippines) let's you choose 3 of your favorite pairs and will let you test them out for 5 days to give you enough time to see which makes you feel and look best. In this program, you will only need to pay for 1 pair to any of their modes of payment (credit card, bank deposit, GCash or Smart Money). Once you've decided which pair you'll get, you will send them all back to Four Eyes (shipping is to be shouldered by Four Eyes) and they'll send you your chosen eyeglasses in 5 days.

Now forgive my narcissistic and vain selfies, but I just love my Four Eyes "Street Beat" glasses so much that these shots are called for. ;)

Four Eyes "Street Beat" Eyeglasses

I chose Street Beat because it suits my face shape, it's light and fits me like a glove. But most of all, because it's a classic style in a timeless color. I was supposed to get the red pair (see first photo) but the OC in me realized I can wear any lip color with black frames, while the red one will limit my choices of lip color (Silly I know, but I'm that OC with colors. Sorreh!).

I highly recommend you to get your pair (or pairs, if you know what I mean. Lol) from Four Eyes. They don't just have fabulous and high-quality eyewear, but they're also a company with a big heart.

They have this project called A Pair For A Pair. For every pair you buy from them, they will donate a pair to someone who needs it but can't afford one. So you're not just buying a pair for yourself, you're also helping out someone else! Now isn't that more than enough reason to get (or collect. Hihihi) Four Eyes eyewear?! :)

More good news! My awesome and fabulous readers also get a Php300 discount! Just enter coupon code CHILIPINA upon check out to avail!

PROACTIV - Pay Using Your Credit Card and Get a Free 4oz Deep Cleansing Wash

Body acne is NEVER sexy.

For people like myself who struggles with combination / oily skin and large pores, body acne is inevitable. Fortunately for me, they never got really bad. I just get these small bumps on my chest and on my back whenever I don't get enough sleep or when I don't apply moisturizer. But still, they are still bothersome and makes me really conscious.

Proactiv Deep Clenasing Wash is an acne treatment that can be used on the face and body. It helps unclog and reduces oiliness while preventing future breakouts. I always use this on my face, maximum of 2X a day. This is also what I use when I have body acne. It leaves my skin soft and smooth; not too harsh that it leaves my skin dried out.

Salicylic Acid – 2%, concentration that is excellent in healing and helping prevent acne break outs
Camelia Oleifera Seed Extract and Aloe Barbadensis Gel – these gentle botanicals soothe and heal skin 

Proactiv offers a way to manage and prevent body acne. For an all over skin clearing body treatment, the Proactiv Deep Cleansing Wash helps in exfoliating dead skin cells and pore-clogging oil and impurities while it cleans and refreshes your skin.

Proactiv knows that acne doesn’t only show on the face. Our backs and shoulders are also susceptible to pimples. I even get them on my chest sometimes! Having this awful skin condition can ruin anyone's confidence: ladies who cannot wear those sexy sleeveless, backless and tube tops because they're too conscious that others might see their body acne. Even men who spent hours at the gym to pump up their muscles have a hard time going topless at the beach because of acne on their backs.

A total acne-free body!

SM Men's Fashion Show - Just Delivered Jeans turns 4

Just in time for the rainy season, Just Delivered Jeans celebrated their 4th anniversary by holding a fashion show with their hot endorsers and other hunk models.

Last August 15, SM Men's Fashion hosted Just Delivered Jeans Fashion Show (#IWANTJUSTDELIVEREDJEANS) to showcase what's hot and what's coming soon from the said brand. Rugged, sporty, casual to just sexy; Just Delivered Jeans has it all.

I had my fair share of SM Fashion Shows, but so far this is the craziest one because, well, this is a MEN'S FASHION SHOW. Hahaha! It felt like a Cosmo Bash but they had more clothes on. Hahaha! It was a night of mancandies and beefcakes! Everyone was screaming and squealing! I really appreciate how the models were very game, too! I'm sorry, my (blurred, sorry!) photos don't justify how awesome this fashion show was. If you're a guy and was just dragged by your girlfriend / friend, you probably didn't enjoy it as much as WE did. But come on, I'm sure you got a few styling tips that you can use, right? ;)

My personal favorite is the smart casual jeans: a little slimmer but not as tight as skinny jeans, dark wash. I think that's the number 1 staple jeans for all guys. You can dress it up or down, and it won't go out of style. 

My least favorite would be the colored jeans. Maybe it's my age (I'm 26. Lol), but I think the colored jeans should be donned by the younger guys. Think One Direction type of kiddos. 

Of course, how can I not mention the hot freakin' abs that I saw that evening? I was squealing like the fangirl that I am!

Everyone got their chance to meet and do a photo-op with these gorgeous hunks. But the line was sooooo long I had to pass up because of the scary weather.

I'm so lucky I got a rose from HIDEO!!! Hahaha!

You can check out Just Delivered Jeans at SM Men's Fashion at SM Stores nationwide.

Nailed It + Review: OMG Oh My Golly Crystal Sand Nail Polish in Quartz

Just when I thought I wouldn't dare apply a glittered nail polish again, I saw this super girly shade and just bought it then and there.

OMG Oh My Golly Crystal Sand Nail Polish in Quartz is a beautiful, girly pink with glitters. It reminds me of Chatterbox and Impassioned combined, sans the glitters. Surprisingly, I didn't have any trouble applying this unlike Opal. It still needed a few more coats to get the opacity that I want. I'm quite impressed with OMG nail polishes 'cause they've never chipped on me. Is it because of the generous coat that I do? Maybe. But I notice that it's formula is really thicker than the usual nail polish, so I guess that provides more strength to avoid chipping.

It didn't leave any stain nor smelled awful. A little easier to apply than the previous glittered nail polish that I used.

OMG Oh My Golly Crystal Sand Nail Polish in Quartz

PROS: beautiful pink shade, easier to apply than Opal, didn't chip, doesn't cause stains, no awful chemical smell, locally available, very affordable

CONS: as usual, needs 2-3 coats to achieve my preferred opacity


 I will definitely repurchase! 

Where To Buy:
