Today I have a beautiful, sophisticated frame. The William Morris Black Label 054 in Gray gradient / Pink. The frame has a unique shape to it designed to fit a variety of face shapes. The color is rich and vibrant. The Black Label line has unique weighted temple tips which helps the frame slide on smoothly and stay in place.
Hey everyone, today’s Frame Friday frame is the FYSH 3596. It’s a very pretty frame with nice detailing and comes in four colors. As you can see, it fits my big head really well, so it’s designed to compliment a larger head but FYSH makes a variety of frames in a variety of sizes.
Let me know what you think of today’s frame. Do you have a favorite frame? Share it in the comments.
Hey everyone, today’s Frame Friday is going to be a little different. As spring is finally here and we are starting to enjoy the thought of warm weather, I’m reminded a lot of youth will be starting to their spring and summer sporting events. While so much focus is put on having the right equipment for the right sport, safe eyewear is often left out of the focus. All too often it is believed his or her everyday frame is fine to be worn when playing sports. I grew up when you didn’t see children wearing helmets but as our knowledge of safety and head injuries has improved, so has the visibility of almost all children wearing helmets when riding a bike, skateboarding, etc. We need to see this type of focus on safety eyewear for youth sports.
Wearing shatterproof lenses just isn’t enough. The frames are not shatterproof. I have seen too many children with a cut going down their face because the frame broke from being hit by a soccer ball or baseball. Eye injuries can also occur from being hit by a ball. Paschal Chukwu went through three eye surgeries because he was hit in the eye by a basketball, resulting in a torn retina.
Pairing the sports glasses with the correct lens combinations make a difference. For many sports, I often recommend the Transitions Vantage lens because it has a light tint at all times to help with most lighting conditions but when your child is playing outside, they transition to a polarized lens, protecting them from the sun while still giving them great vision. I have also recommended this combination for motorcyclists as well as adults needing safety glasses for outside work. Even doing chores around the yard such as cutting the grass is safer with the right eye protection.
Sometimes we forget just how dangerous any sport can be. While I don’t want to take away from the fun and enjoyment of playing a sport, I want to remind everyone to do it safely, wearing all of the necessary safety equipment, including safety eye wear. Even if your child, or you yourself, doesn’t need corrective lenses to see, it doesn’t mean you wouldn’t benefit from a sport / safety eyeglass. Sunglasses are NOT a substitute for safe eye wear.
If you have any questions about how to protect your eyes with whatever activity you enjoy, feel free to leave a comment or reach out to your optician.
Happy Friday AND Happy Spring everyone! 🤓
Hey everyone, today I chose the frame line: The Original Penguin for my Frame Friday. I know, I know, it’s more than one frame, but I wanted to showcase a nice men’s line and show a few of their frames. I don’t think The Original Penguin is well known as an eye wear line but it should be.
I do want to make one correction from my video, The Theodore
does not come in a jr version. I didn’t want to redo the whole video for that, I figured I would just put the correction in here.
I hope you enjoy today’s frame choices. Be sure to share them with someone you think would look great in them.

Every Friday I’ll showcase a different frame. I’ve always been a blogger, not a vlogger so bear with me as I venture into this new realm of video as well. I’m highlighting my Jimmy Choo 177 frame. If you’re personality shines bright like a diamond, this frame may be for you.
Have a great day everyone and see the world as clearly as you can! 🤓
