Upgrade To Clearer Vision With Xperio UV Protection Lenses

November 19th, 2015 by Christen

Growing up, I’ve always had crisp and clear 20/20 vision.  Ironically, I was also the kid that desperately wanted to wear glasses since I was in the 4th grade.  Back then, there was something so studious and chic about wearing glasses and even though I didn’t need them, I wanted to wear glasses bad.  Fast forward 20 years later, after starting the blog and spending 10-12 hours staring at a computer screen, I noticed my eyesight wasn’t what it used to be.  I needed glasses, and I needed them fast.



After years of wearing a variety of prescription reading glasses and sunglasses I thought I experienced the pinnacle of clear vision should be. That is, until I learned about Xperio UV polarized prescription lenses.  Xperio UV polarized prescription sun lenses virtually eliminate blinding glare so you can see the outside world with sharper color and greater depth.  Xperio UV polarized prescription sun lenses aren’t just ordinary sun lenses either. They help you see more no matter if you’re staring at a computer screen in the office all day or playing sports outside, providing excellent clarity of vision all while protecting your eyes with a superior quality lens.

Recently, I got the chance to ship off a pair of designer prescription sunglasses for the Xperio UV polarized lens treatment.  After a few weeks, my sunglasses were returned with a certificate of authenticity & guide on caring for my new and improved shades.  Not only were the polarized lenses a complete upgraded vision experience but they also eliminate 100% of blinding reflective glare, they’re practically scratch resistant and offer maximum UV (SPF 50) eye protection.

Four Eyes Are Better Than Two: LensCrafters’s myLook Campaign Featuring Zoe Saldana

November 1st, 2012 by Christen

If you’ve been following my quest to find new sexy specs, you’ve noticed that years of blogging has now diminished my 20/20 eyesight to sheer blindness.. LOL!  Lucky for me, finding prescription glasses to suit my daily stylish needs isn’t hard to come by and when you pair stylish fames with an equally stylish starlet – it makes for stylish solutions for any 4-eyed diva or dork to enjoy.

Actress Zoe Saldana stars as leading lady for LensCrafters’s myLook campaign, which launches today, and we have a few behind-the-scenes images that shows you just how fun a photoshoot with Hollywood’s leading stylist could be. We also learned that at the photo shoot, Saldana sang and danced to Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, and Kings of Leon; and she prefers cat-eye shaped, tortoise shell, and bright-red frames. Check out this first look at the ad, plus shots of Saldana on set below…

A Guide To The Perfect Frames For Your Face!

April 24th, 2012 by Christen

With summer around the corner it’s time to buy the perfect pair of sunglasses for the sunny days ahead. Determining what style best suits your face shape can be tricky, so sat down with MyHabit Senior Fashion Editor, Jenny Feldman who offered her tips and tricks of the trade.  Check out her advice on choosing the most flattering frames for your face:


Characterized by high cheekbones and a chin that is narrower than the forehead.
Oval-shaped faces are lucky as most shaped lenses suit them.  Experiment with various shapes, colors and styles, but make sure the size of your sunglasses is proportionate to the size of your face.


Characterized by a full face without much cheekbone or jaw definition.
Look for styles that appear to lengthen and slim the face.  Avoid round curves and stick to square or rectangle frames.  Dark colored sunglasses add dimension to round faces!


Characterized by a strong jaw with a wide forehead, chin and cheekbones.
Round frames contrast angular features, soften the jaw line and add length to the face – perfect for square-shaped faces.  Make sure the top of the frame sits high enough on the face to downplay the jaw line.


Characterized by a small forehead, high cheekbones, narrow eye and a narrow jaw.
Those with diamond-shaped faces should opt for glasses that widen the forehead while downplaying cheekbones.  Oval, rimless frames can complement wide cheekbones often associated with diamond faces.


Characterized by a wide forehead and a low narrow chin.
Frames that are the same width on the top and bottom help balance heart-shaped faces by broadening the jaw.  People with heart-shaped faces should dabble with colored glasses which draw attention to the top of the face.

Other things to keep in mind:

Make sure the frames cover your eyebrows.


When choosing a pair of sunglasses, a good rule of thumb is that your eyes should be positioned in the middle of the lens (vertically and horizontally)


The edge of the frames should be slightly wider than the widest part of your face
