MANGO Eyewear, brought to you by Eye Trendy | Your Eyewear Collective
Eye Trendy | Your Eyewear Collective carries more than 20 brands of eyewear, and joining the big family will be the MANGO Eyewear Collection! This is the first time ever that MANGO Eyewear will be available in optical shops in Singapore. The launch of the MANGO Eyewear collection will be held at a pool party in a luxurious hotel and you're invited (no, I'm not kidding!) Keep reading for more details!
I was stoked to be able to preview and pick out a few pairs of eyewear from this high quality MANGO collection since the collection will only be available in optical retail stores in Singapore.
Clearly having a really great time trying out the wide range of sunglasses available! It didn't take me very long before I decided on my pick, because I tend to go for rounder-shaped ones. More pictures of my pick below!
At the same time, I picked out a pair of glasses! For prescription glasses, I would usually opt for oversized and black-framed ones, which are really the rage right now.
I really like the fact that Eye Trendy provides eyewear that are modern, and as their name suggests, trendy as well. The MANGO Eyewear collection in particular, really suits professionals my age who are looking for affordable eyewear that's in trend as well.
And here are my picks! Haven't got the time to get my prescription lenses done because I have a complicated prescription which would take longer than usual to get the lenses fitted, and I was too excited to try them out for some photos.. But seriously, I'm in love!
In absolute love with this pair of sunglasses (Model no: MN403-10) from the MANGO Eyewear range - from the colour (black never fails) to the style - as well as the thin yet sturdy frames. Also, the lenses of all the sunglasses in this MANGO Eyewear collection are polarized, which provides extra visual comfort and clarity since I wouldn't have to squint my eyes trying to see under the scorching sun to get a clear view.
People who know me knows I can't live without my sunglasses and other than it protecting your eyes from the harmful UV rays (especially in Singapore!), it is a great accessory for styling your outfits. Of course, it came in a sunglasses case where I can keep my pair tucked away in my bag without fearing it will break or get any scratches.
I have sadly, been bespectacled for almost 13 years of my life and over the years, I have had the worst encounters with glasses! From glasses that hurt my nose bridge to ones that I never want to be seen in...
Anyhow, I'm so glad to have gotten this pair of frames (Model no: MNG416-10) from the MANGO Eyewear collection, and I can't wait to get the lenses fitted. In case you’re wondering why it says “H.E. by MANGO” on the lenses, it’s actually the men’s series, BUT that does not deter me from being in love with this pair, since MANGO Eyewear encapsulates a modern, trendy and stylish vibe that allows for both urban men and women to match with their outfits easily.
This pair of frames surprisingly fitted me really well, and I think it can easily pass off as a pair of geek specs (which is the trend right!). The sides are in a gunmetal shade, and I just love how black goes along so well with gunmetal.
Now in the future, I'm certain I would go out in my spectacles very often. Sorry, not sorry, but I just can't get over how a legit pair of prescription glasses can look so good!

Previously, I had written an entry on handcrafted necklaces with a single stalk of flower in them (you can read the entry here). This time round, the wonderful duo behind WHYNOTSPEAKUP has come up with yet another concept and of course, am equally unique and eye-catching collection of necklaces.
"You can't always see me, but I'm always there."
Initially, I had trouble making out the shape of this necklace and simply couldn't tell what it stands for, unlike the first collection which was pretty straightforward - flowers that never withered symbolising an eternity of love. It wasn't until I looked up WHYNOTSPEAKUP's website that I figured the concept behind this necklace and as always, their concepts behind their creations never fail.
Based on the quote "You can't always see me, but I'm always there", the true character of this series of necklaces cannot actually be figured until you shine light on it, and that's when the shadow casted reveals the true meaning of it
I picked the Fluerlumiere necklace from the series which actually means 'light flower' in English. Of course, other than the 'fleur' necklaces from this Sentinels series, there is another variation which is actually the 'avion' necklace, which casts a shadow of that of a fighter jet when light is shone on it.
Does anyone see the flower in the shadow cast? Flowers to me, symbolises love, care and concern (and anything positive in fact), and as the light casts over the necklace to form the shadow that takes the shape of a flower, it symbolises the devotion to watch over, love and protect the person who's wearing the necklace.
Of course, the gold plated bar in the centre actually stands for the person wearing the necklace. Positioned right in the centre of the necklace, it can be seen as if the love, care and protection is surrounding the centrepiece.
Somehow, necklaces from WHYNOTSPEAKUP never fail to make me feel blessed wearing them. A simple necklace yet the most symbolic one, which makes it a genuinely precious gift that holds great meaning for both the giver and receiver.
Express yourself, convey your love, and speak up with these necklaces today. They'd make the perfect gift for someone close to you - your family, friends or your other half. Do visit their website or their Instagram @whynotspeakup for more.
To me, jewellery are more than just accessories that jazzes up an outfit and complete the look. I see them as symbolical items that carry meaning – each and every of them a different one. That is what makes them special and unique, isn't it?
Recently, I received a couple of these lovely Eternity necklaces from WHYNOTSPEAKUP. Inside each of these beautifully handcrafted necklaces is a single stalk of living flower, which I think is what makes them really special because how often do you see a living flower enclosed within a necklace?
Besides, these bullet-shaped necklaces carry a strong message with the fact that flowers in each of the necklaces are real, living flowers that last an eternity, and that is – love, similar to the flower in the necklace, never wilts and that it lasts an eternity too.
I love how every little detail of the flower, all the way from the stalk to the petals and even the corona (center part) of the flower. It's pretty amazing how a flower can be retained in its precious and natural form to be placed inside this bullet-shaped necklace, all thanks to the wonderful frosting technology that WHYNOTSPEAKUP has used. Not only that, the flower inside actually changes in different atmospheres - blooming when its dry and cold, and closing when it's moist and warm.
With the frosting technology in place, these little flowers require only very minimal watering and maintenance (only one drop of water is needed every week). Admittedly, the flower-lover in me was especially excited because really, how often do you get a 'mini potted living plant', especially since you can wear it out everyday?
I would like to think that the Eternity necklace is such a wonderful creation, gorgeous and meaningful at the same time. They would definitely make perfect gifts on romantic or special occasions (well, Valentines' is just a month away!) especially if your loved one is a fan of jewellery or flowers, or both!
What better way to express your love than to have your loved one wear a symbolic adornment, especially a necklace since its close to his/her heart? I know certainly that I'd be touched if someone were to present me with such a beautiful necklace, wouldn't you?
Do visit their website for a more extensive collection of the Eternity necklaces available in a variety of colors, or check out their Instagram @whynotspeakup for any updates or giveaway details!
Note: Necklaces are available for preorder from now till 12th January because they are made-to-order, so place your order in advance to receive them before Valentine's! They'll be priced at 10% off from now till 12th January 2015.
P/S: Also, check out my Instagram for a giveaway for one of these necklaces pretty soon!
