Just like couples do

From holding hands to keeping it low profile to walking out in coordinated outfits – all of us have a distinct way of showcasing our relationship in public, with my personal favourite being the coordination of the looks!

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Isn’t it such a lovely sight to watch couples dressed in sync with one another?

But the idea of matching shouldn’t mean sporting same outfits but more like dressing well as a pair. The couples shouldn’t really go overboard with the coordination bit but fashionably matched looks can make them stand out & get noticed.

Now, we have all seen a lot of couples making a statement by matching a piece of clothing or an entire outfit with their partner’s, and most of us have even tried it ourselves, but have you ever thought about taking it forward by coordinating your eyewear style with your partner’s?

If you haven’t, then you must now & give it a shot by taking some inspiration from these star couples:

Dear Lenskart, thank you!

What makes Lenskart happy? Happy and satisfied customers, of course!

Well, let’s take a look at what some of the customers, who enjoyed the Home Eye Check-Up program, had to say.

My relationship with Lenskart

2 Mohit

Mohit Pandey, manager at American Express, Delhi – “I was looking for a good pair of frame and I saw the Lenskart advertisement. I visited the website and found it very interactive. I could see that they offered a lot of frames. I could even try it online and then I saw that if I register, I could get my First Frame Free. So, this is how my relationship with Lenskart started. Since I wanted to get my eyes rechecked as well, I asked for the Home Check-Up service. Within a day, the technical staffs came to my place fully-equipped with machines and checked my eyes. After that, I placed my order and got my spectacles very soon. I really love Lenskart.”

Convenient & fabulous

3 Bhagwant

Bhagwant Purbha, I.T. professional, Delhi – “I’ve been into purchasing online stuff for a few years now, Lenskart being the pioneer in selling lenses and spectacles. I believe Lenskart to be one of the best in the industry for selling these products. Recently, I used one of the services where Lenskart sent their professionals to my place and checked my parents’ vision. It’s a hectic job to take my parents out for eye check-ups. So, this service by Lenskart was very convenient and it was a fabulous job done. I have been using their products and their products are one of the best and the quality is pretty good. I would recommend Lenskart to others as they are one of the best in the industry and their quality is unmatched with other websites and providers.”

Being appreciated

Arjun

Arjun, student, 11-years-old, Delhi – “I once went on Lenskart and saw that there were many types of frames. I browsed through the website and told my father about it. He also browsed through it and got to know that the first frame was free. He contacted them and in a day or two, a van came fully equipped with great stuff and they checked my eyes. After that, my father placed the order for the frames which arrived soon afterwards. I saw that spectacles were delicately packed, so that there would not be any damages. My father appreciated the site and I strongly recommend Lenskart.com.”

Impressed with Lenskart

Mayoor bhatiya

Mayoor Bhatia, Mumbai – “The first time I came across this website, I was a bit skeptical about the process of ordering eyeglasses online. I would ask myself whether this website is for real. After getting my eyes checked from an ophthalmologist, I mustered up courage to place an order with Lenskart. Since I use progressive lenses, I was advised by their customer service executive to get an eye checkup done by their team in Mumbai. Their team visited my workplace and they did a thorough and professional job of conducting my eye examination. They even had a few frames from which I could try. They even helped me in placing my order online. Within 6 days I received my eyeglasses in a neatly packed carton, that too with Cash on Delivery facility. I was very impressed by the quality of the frame and the lens. Based on this experience I also placed an order for powered sunglasses, which again turned out to be very impressive. Thanks to this portal, one can order and receive your eyewear from the comfort of your home. In a nutshell, Lenskart has revolutionized the way people will shop for eyewear in future.”

Job well-done

Kodak lenses

Babu Singh, Mumbai – “I just received my rimless eyeglasses with free Kodak lenses. I was apprehensive since it was my first order for eyeglasses online, but the glasses came out perfect. Your eye-check up at my office place was also good. The packaging, leather case and glasses were perfect. I will recommend it to my friends and delivery time of 2 days was just awesome though I guess being in Mumbai helps. Good job Lenskart. From now on I would buy my glasses from Lenskart.”

Making life better

Sumana Chakraborty, Calcutta – “I booked an eye check-up for mother yesterday through Lenskart. She received a call for address and time confirmation. Life has been made easy these days. An eye check-up done at home only for Rs. 100.”

The Home Check-Up program provides the best service and the best quality at the best price. It is taking shopping experience to the next level by introducing an optical shop with eye check-up equipment, right at your doorstep. Now, it’s easier for you to get a regular eye check-up or buy new spectacles.

October: Month of oomph and talent

As the month of October draws to a close, we pay a tribute to all those Librans/Scorpions who are born dreamers and charmers. By their very nature, these people are talented and natural performers. The creative zeal within them comes to the fore as soon as they hit the stage. Most October born celebs are known for their singing talent. Here’s a list of our most loved celeb performers who have taken the world by a storm, not just with their melodious voice, but also with their impeccable sense of style.

smiling face

Gwen Stefani (Oct. 3)

She is glamorous, has a voice that can melt many a hearts and performs with such ease that everyone gets drawn into her act naturally. Gwen, a songwriter, actress and a fashion designer is known for being the jack of all trades. She emerged as a leading force in the pop music circuit in the late 20s and much like Madonna, Stefani wooed her fans with her personal style statement.

We just love her unusual sunglasses collection. Stefani sure knows to mix them well. She has one that goes with every attire!

unusual sunglass collection

Bruno Mars (Oct. 8)

This Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter stands out for being a super performer and a style icon all rolled into one. Bruno Mars often reminds me of the ultimate Pop-star Michael Jackson who is known as the king of Pop for a good reason. Like MJ carried fashion and style on his finger tips, so does Mars. he makes a statement without much ado. I adored MJ’s thick rimmed Wayfarer sunglasses as much as I love Mars in his Club masters.

Bruno Mars

John Lennon (Oct. 9)

Lennon exudes confidence and coolness as soon as he takes to the stage. His music and ideologies have left a remarkable impact on the society and so has his casual dressing style. Although, I have a round face, I love the thin wire-rimmed style of glasses that Lennon was seen sporting on most dos.

John Lennon

Ashok Kumar (Oct.13)

The legendary Ashok Kumar had an aura around him with his deep husky voice and method acting. He defined the cool-hero look in the 70s and 80s in Bollywood with his thick-rim bold frames. The glasses have made a strong comeback this season. Today, they are known as hipsters :)

Ashok Kumar

Usher (Oct.14)

Usher aka the badshah of hip-hop needs no introduction. Whether on the stage or while he is on the streets, Usher’s style stands out from miles away.  He switches his glares often and carries them with panache.

If you want to mimic Usher’s look, do not forget to compliment the attire with oversized frames. The guy just rocks this look. Something like these will work…

Usher

Eminem (Oct. 17)

13-times Grammy Award winner and popular hip-hop icon, Eminem, is quite flexible when it comes to styling. He likes to keep his fans guessing with his new look that he wears each time. But his most ardent listeners have this image of him imprinted in their minds – his head gear, leather jacket or a hoodie is what defines Eminem for them. His steel full-rim rectangular eyeglasses also used to be quite a vogue during those days but Eminem only wears them off-stage now.

Eminem

Snoop Dogg (Oct. 20)

It’s not just his style of singing that is unique and refreshing. Snoop Dog has quirk written all over him. The popular rapper and hip hop artist who has churned out many a hits in his time has a penchant for eyeglasses. Whether he is on the stage performing or he is off it, one will always find Snoop Dogg with his fav big black sunglasses. He does like to mix it up once in a while with colourful rims. Here’s what we mean.

Snoop Dogg

Katy Perry (Oct. 25)

The diva is known to set the stage on fire as soon as she steps on it! Her eclectic style combined with her melodious voice makes Perry one of the most successful performers of her time. She has never shied away from sporting quirky fashion accessories and loves to experiment with a new look very often. If you are the sorts who don’t like to stick to a certain style in eyewear, you will love what Perry does. Her style is often punchy with a touch of retro.

Katy Perry

Eyeball grabbing styles, aren’t they? If you are born in October and have a thing for stylish eyewear like our favorite celebs, tell us about your mantra in the comments below.

It’s Happy New Year on Diwali!

For years now, it has become customary for Bollywood to release a big banner flick at Diwali time. We’re not sure what the reason is, since more than half the cinemagoers are busy with festivities and have no time for movie watching, but one big flick awaits us every Diwali. Perhaps, it’s just a lucky time!

So, on 2014’s Diwali, silver screen’s shining bright with Farah Khan directorial and SRK starrer Happy New Year.

Well, the movie looks so bright and loud, befitting the festival of lights and sound, that Bollywood bugs will definitely check it out over the weekend. I’ll try my luck too – but hoping against hope to lay my hands on the tickets.

However, all said and done, what really caught my attention in the above banner were the smart blue sunglasses all these superstars are wearing. Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani and Sonu Sood, minus the glam doll Deepika Padukone, are wearing these chic blue tinted sunglasses, which now I want.

SRK in happy new year

And this banner’s not it! The star cast of Happy New Year seems to be making quite a statement with the sunglasses in the movie as a whole too. Loud, jazzy outfits, groovy music and haute sunnies – a perfect Bollywood masala, eh!

Oh, how I love the mirrored classic Aviators worn by Deepika and Shahrukh in their Slam Tour poster for the movie. Their striking blue ensembles, accessorized with dynamic sunglasses complete the look! Abhishek Bachchan and veteran Boman Irani’s vougish D-shaped sunglasses, Vivaan’s Wayfarers and Sonu’s Aviators are high on style quotient too!

star cast of happy new year

And how can’t they be style conscious before taking off for the promotional tour to the U.S.? The superstar cast of the film along with director Farah Khan and singer Yo Yo Honey Singh dazzled at the Mumbai Airport with Shahrukh, Deepika, Sonu, Abhishek, and Honey donning sassy and peppy sunglasses.

shahrukh khan with dipika

It seems that the whole team is too fond of flashy Aviators as they can be spotted on Shah Rukh, Abhishek, Boman, Sonu and Vivaan in the song ‘India Waale’ from the movie.

Renowned for his acting skills, this actor sure knows how to carry off this quirky and unconventional look. Playing the role of Tammy in the movie, Boman Irani absolutely sweeps this look with the swanky sunglasses on.

dipika padukone

And personifying finesse, refinement and timelessness, the vintage Aviators again make their appearances, coupled with retro-chic outfits, redefining eccentricity and class.

Recreating the retro mood with this gaudy golden outfit in the song ‘Nonsense ki Night’, the funky round sunglasses accentuates their queerness.

And once again during the Slam Tour, the actors decked up in passionate regalia, and Aviators added a dash of spunk to their personalities. And Vivaan adorning vintage Wayfarers made his own style statement.

Well, I think now you do know what to add to your collection of sunglasses this season, isn’t it? With these hotties spotting them everywhere with all kinds of outfits, you are sure to rock with these sunglasses too. And hey, don’t forget to catch up on the movie this weekend for entertainment, fun and frolic! I hope you get inspired and experiment with your look.

And wishing you a very happy and prosperous Diwali :)

5 essential eye-care tips for a safe Diwali

Diwali, the festival of lights, is celebrated with great enthusiasm. The festival is most enjoyed with house decorations and lightings, gifting, rangolis and fireworks.

Diya

Though Diwali celebrations mean a lot of fun and enjoyment, there is a need to be careful during this festival of lights. With incidents of eye injuries and even loss of eye-sight being reported every year, it’s crucial to take safety measures. Eye care is essential during Diwali. Fire cracker-related eye injuries could cause grave and irreversible danger.

While enjoying the festival to its fullest, here are five simple safety tips for your eyes during Diwali:

Maintain a safe distance

If you want to witness the colourful display of fireworks, do it at a safe distance. This will ensure that no debris will fall on your eyes and since you are not in the proximity, you are safe from any sort of danger.

Use protective glasses or eye-wear

Children should not be left unsupervised. It is highly advisable for kids and adults alike to wear safety goggles. This will prevent debris and smoke from fire crackers from entering your eyes.

Safety glasses are highly recommended for those individuals lighting the fireworks and those individuals in close proximity to the fireworks.

Wash your eyes

In the event of an eye injury, do not rub your eyes. If there are any particles inside your eyes, it will scratch your eyeballs and this will cause further damage. Instead, wash your eyes with clean water for about 10 minutes and after that visit an eye doctor at the earliest.

No contact lenses

contact lenses

If you’re a contact lens wearer, it is advisable not to wear them while watching or bursting fireworks. Contact lenses may cause irritation to the eyes if exposed to high heat for a long time.

Wash hands thoroughly

hand wash

Make sure you wash your hands properly after making a rangoli or handling fireworks, and before you touch your eyes. The coloured powder, chalk powder and chemicals from the crackers may cause eye irritation and itchiness.

Remember – prevention is better than cure.

Even though fireworks may be pretty and bright, it is best to stay away from them. Do not let children light crackers. If there are fireworks, there should always be adult supervision. These precautions can go a long way to ensure a safe Diwali for you, your family & friends and your loved ones.

Have a safe and happy Diwali folks. :)

Gearing up for Spring-Summer 2015

Runway glamour is back in the Capital, as the Wills Lifestyle Fashion week kicked off on Wednesday. And let me tell you, the designers went all out for the Spring-Summer 2015 collection. The first two days of Wills Lifestyle India Spring-Summer 2015 fashion week saw collections that were high on glamour and awe-striking designs.

Dominated by floral prints and soft colours, it may seem like designers were paying tribute to Mother Nature. Playing with lacy patterns and embroideries, some of the collection exhibited the feminine touch for next season. While all of the designs were alluringly created, something else caught my attention. The sunglasses and eyeglasses, what else? Being an absolute cherished accessory for me, I simply couldn’t miss out on it. Scanning through the designs from day 1 and 2 of the Wills Lifestyle fashion week, here are some of my favourites, have a look.

The ideal amalgamation

perfect round sunglasses

I instantly fell in love with Tarun Tahiliani’s Spring-Summer collection. Unlike his previous designs, Tahiliani decided to tread on a different path. Mixing modish designs with what seems to be old India. The riot of colours, the fascinating designs and the perfect round sunglasses, Tahiliani definitely aced this.

Playing with patterns

The collection comprised of striking patterns and bold colours that were to die for. The clothes were flirty and voguish with a dash of retro incorporated in it. The collection was called ‘The Knot’ by Hemant & Nandita and yes, it was a crowd pleaser. To top it all, the sunnies were an added delight.

Sign of excellence

Sophisticated – ‘Virtues’ by Viral, Ashish & Vikrant was a breath of fresh air. The ‘Virtues’ collection is a blend of ancient Indian art and Shashiko stitching from Japan. The scarlet red and white colour combination was perfect, relaxed and elegant. The vintage round eyeglasses made the ensemble look exquisite.

Well, that was what the designers had to offer on day one and two of the Wills Lifestyle India fashion week. Adding modernity and vintage designs together, the collection so far was top-notch and mesmerizing. It seems like round frames will be the trendiest accessory next spring and summer. A unique way to stand out is the round frames. A classy eyewear, they are the perfect frame to add a little whimsy to your look.

As the Wills India Fashion Week, Spring-Summer 2015 continues I am just praying to see more sunnies and specs in the runway.

10 best foods for healthy eyes

Vision has become a luxury these days. It is frightening that millions of people, adults and children alike are suffering from severe eye conditions. Many of us neglect the health of our eyes. It is wise to take proper care because as we all know, “prevention is better than cure”. Well, did you know that eating right can keep our eyes healthy too?

It is a universal fact that a healthy diet is the way to keep your heart active and fit. Much like our hearts, our eyes are vascular too. They rely on arteries for oxygen and nutrients. So, the good news is that the same heart-healthy diet will benefit our eyes as well. For a brighter and clearer vision, consider these foods on your next trip to the food mart.

1. Carrots

carrot

Is it a wonder that carrots made it into the list? Everyone knows how wonderful carrots are for our eyes. They are an excellent source of vitamin A and beta-carotene which are essential for eye health. They will help lower the risks of macular degeneration and cataracts.

 2. Leafy vegetables

leafy veggies

Leafy veggies such as spinach and kale are high in lutein and zeaxanthin – two powerful antioxidants that help protect against retinal damage and improve your eyesight. The antioxidants found in leafy greens absorb blue light which is dangerous for the retina.

 3. Sea food

sea food

A diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acid reduces the risk of developing eye disease later in life. Sea food, mainly different kinds of fish like salmon, tuna and cod are rich in fatty acid. Lack of Omega-3 may contribute to dry eye syndrome.

 4. Non-meat protein source (nuts/eggs/beans)

eggs

Eggs, nuts, beans and other non-meat protein sources can boost our vision. A natural source of vitamin D, egg yolks can reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration. Nuts like peanuts and almonds contain vitamins E which are known for protecting eyes from free-radical damage. Red kidney beans are a good source of zinc, a mineral vital to eye health. Zinc helps with night vision and cataract prevention.

5. Citrus (Oranges/grape fruits)

citrus

All fruit and veggies that fall under citrus are great for our eyes. Oranges, grape fruits and lemons are high in vitamin C, an antioxidant that is critical to eye health. If you’re not a fan of citrus fruit or veggies, you can always opt for red peppers, strawberries or peaches, which are also rich in vitamin C.

6. Sweet potatoes and yam

sweet potato

Sweet potatoes and yam are packed with nutrients that are good for our overall health. They contain beta carotene, vitamins A & C, fiber and potassium which are all good for eye health.

 7. Tomatoes

tomatoes

Lycopene is an antioxidant compound which gives tomatoes their vibrant red colour. This particular antioxidant helps prevent light-induced damage to the retina. They are also excellent source of vitamin C, another vision protector.

8. Olive oil

Olive oil

There have been several studies and researches which show that a diet that is low in saturated and trans-fat can help prevent retina diseases. Not only is olive oil free of trans-fat and low in saturated fat, it is also reported that people who consume it regularly are 48% less likely to develop age-related macular degeneration.

9. Turkey

Turkey

Fortified with B vitamins and zinc, turkey is the ideal meaty protein which keeps the eyes healthy and can ward off cataracts. It is one of the best and tasty foods for healthy eyes. Turkey is incredibly versatile and can be substituted for both chicken and beef.

10. Broccoli

broccoli

Packed with lutein and vitamin C, broccoli is good for eyes and it can help in obstructing loss of vision. In fact, any types of green veggies are best for preventing the loss of vision.

conclude

There are a lot of great food choices that can keep our eyes healthy. Rich in antioxidants, fats and minerals, these foods are amazing and delectable as well. It is advisable to incorporate them into our daily diet. One of the most important things to remember is to maintain a diet that is low in saturated and trans-fat to improve our eye health and prevent eye diseases.
