today i wanna share with you guys this long-awaited eyewear post! we did the photoshoot when i just came back from taiwan, which is like 4 months ago...lol. anyways, in my personal opinion, i think a pair of glasses is the accessory that could totally change a person's look in a second without changing their hairstyle or makeup. it really is a magical accessory! and that's exactly why i put on glasses from time to time even though i have perfect eye sight.. plus it's just such a good friend for those no-makeup days. a must for lazy girls!
eyecupcakes is an eyewear brand launched by a friend of mine. of course i'm gonna show some support :D moreover, the quality of their glasses is truly top-notch but reasonably priced. i highly recommend checking them out!
they also sell other name brands like a.j. morgan, claire goldsmith...etc. but today i'm gonna focus on eyecupcakes brand glasses. there are total of 4 series- cheers, basic, active, and first batch. each series has it's own distinct style. most of them are unisex. personally i love cheers & basic, which are the 2 series that will look good on most of the people.
i invited my dear sis to do the shoot together! this shall be the first post ever that you'll get to see not just me but also other faces lol. (let's clap for sis!) i intentionally picked similar style of glasses to wear with my sis as sister-frames. i just thought it's super sweet to wear matching frames with loved ones. : ) let's see which frames we tried on!
the first one is tortoise round frame.
the pair sis' wearing is cheers street ec-07016. a very chic & cute frame that gives a "slimmer face shape" effect. the pinkish tortoise color is just stunning! and if you look at it side way, you'll notice there're actually 2 layers. the inner layer is white. and it just makes this frame even more beautiful & unique.
the one i'm wearing is a smaller round frame, cheers dawn ec-07006. it's composed with dark brown base and gold tortoise pattern. a little more low-key compares to sis' but still full of it's own personality. i love the gold pattern, you'll need to be close enough to see it's sparkling beauty.
eyecupcakes eyewear has those nose pads specially designed for asians. you know..we usually don't have high nose bridge like caucasians does, and the glasses slide off from our nose easily lol. but with eyecupcakes' thoughtful design, the glasses stays on my face perfectly!
cheers collections are mostly trendy acetate frames, while basic collections go for the metal. and to be honest, i was very skeptical & hesitated when i browsed through the basic series. coz for some reason, i thought metal frames are for older people (sorry if i offended anyone). but that stereotype just broke after i tried on the first basic frame!! it wasn't giving me the old look at all, and it's crazily elegant!!!
the metal frames are very well made & delicate, almost like art piece. i was having a hard time resisting the desire of bringing several frames home... : /
the one sis' wearing is basic ec-5001 01. a very pretty bronze color. there's also a silver one in the same model, but i think bronze is more soft and feminine.
the one i'm wearing is basic ec-5002 02. black frame with dark brown temples (the legs). the bridge part is designed with that cute curve, which makes my nose bridge look higher hahaha. i just wanna sits in a café sipping my coffee and read a book for the whole afternoon when i have the basic frame on!
lastly, i wanna share this other cheers frame- cheers dawn ec-07011
it's a very simple & light black thin frame. it doesn't gives you the bulky heavy feeling like thick framed glasses, but still provides the effect of slimmer face shape coz it's oversized! how can i not love it?! it's so minimal and chic that i can wear it with any outfit~
alrighty, i think i'll stop here and give you some time checking out eyecupcakes' website on your own. there're tons of trendy frames for you to explore!
last but not least, i just wanna shout...「my sis is soooo hot!!!!!」 hahahaha i was secretly praising her while editing the photos! she's just simply gorgeous! and she's single & available! act quickly guys.. LOL (if you are really serious about making friends with her, please leave me a message. and of course i'll do the first round elimination for her lol) (how can an eyewear post becomes tinder ad?!)
anyways... i love my sis ❤ and we love eyecupcakes!

I didn’t grow up liking the color pink. For some strange reason, I had associated this particular color with vocabulary such as “weak” “girly” “cute” - words registered in my brain as “TNM” (TOTALLY NOT ME)!
My appetite for the color pink started to grow when this baby girl came into my life —>
Annya gravitates toward everything pink ever since she’s just a few months old. Her behavior revolutionized the value I placed on pink. I begin to “see” pink differently.
3 things I’ve learned from this journey of my growing affinity toward pink:
First of all, what I used to care less has now picked up new meaning in my life. In this case, all things in pink!
Secondly, I only care because of the person or object that holds an endearing relationship with me on a personal level. In this pinkalicious world, my daughter Annya holds the key.
Thirdly, I learned to appreciate pink color objects through a change of heart - a perspective shift. Hence we introduce an all-pink sunglasses with interchangeable temples to our collections. Am I inspired? You bet!! Check it out here.
I guess I've now been officially pinkified. Thanks for stopping by today :-)

[Eyewear] TAKING A COFFEE BREAK? 12 Other Ways to call coffee breaks at work - that's more Than two a day!
Our team L.A. went on a short coffee break today. A little bit of what we call "half time" activity, often takes place an hour or so after lunch break (when all that food draws blood away from our brain)!! You might be wondering, "Seriously, how many BREAKS do you guys take per day?!"
Well, allow us to let you in on our list of 12 Other Ways to Call Coffee Breaks. Feel free to add more to this list and share with us :)
- tea break - time to imagine sitting in a garden with a 3-tier tea sandwiches and cake set ready
- breathing time - for those in an intense work environment
- cigarette break - addicted or just an excuse to get away (it's your call)
- downtime - hyperventilating or in need of some alone time
- enforced respite - required by the law
- half time - sports fan's lingo
- happy hour - it's for everyone!
- point of repose - an elegant way to scream "I'm sleepy!"
- quiet spell - did you ever work with people who just talk all day?!
- time out - any 3-year-old can demonstrate this
- interregnum - your friend working in government agencies knows best
- And this is our favorite --> Sugar attack!!! needless to explain
After sugar rush, we decided to take some photos wearing our frames just for fun! Enjoy reading and sipping coffee at the same time (or drinking tea for those non-coffee lovers or gulping down water for those health-conscious individuals such as my lovely blogger friend SHIN)!!
How about you? Wanna join us next time?
