If you are looking at eyewear – be it sunglasses or prescription glasses, be sure to visit EyeChamp this National Day!
I shall not bore you with lengthy sales pitching nor hard selling but let me share 4 reasons why!
Firstly and most importantly, they are a champion when it come to the varieties of eyewear brands they carry. The branch we visited is situated in NEX Shopping mall. The moment we set foot into the store, we went ‘WOWWWW’ at how huge the store is.
As usual, James is the more careful and less decisive shopper. Thus, it took him almost an hour to pick out just two pairs of eyewear due to the myriad of options he was given! There are even high end brands which are not commonly found in conventional optical shops, take for instances OliverPeoples which he eventually settled for.
Whereas for me, I was more decisive in what I wanted and so I made a beeline for their Prada and Rayban collection. Hehe!
Next, who doesn’t appreciate a bit of cost savings? There are having different promotions for most of the eyewear brands and the discount can go up to 30% off the usual retail price! WOOT!
This is on top of the fact that their prescription glasses are priced relatively cheaper than some of the other optical shops we visited.
Lastly, not forgetting the friendly and helpful staff! I would gladly give 3 stars for their customer service! The explanation was thorough and clear. We didn’t even have to ask much questions to get our spectacles fixed that day.
Also, despite the endless flow of customers in and out of the store, I managed to pick up how meticulous their staff can be. One of the staffs was able to recognize a customer despite it being only her second visit which we found out later on after they struck up a conversation.
Without a doubt, they are going to thoroughly look after your needs in this shop! Isn’t that exactly the epitome of customer service!
If you feel that the above mentioned promotion is not appealing enough, you should continue to read on! Because thanks to our dear nation’s birthday aka National Day this year, there will be two sales going on concurrently:

I must say that I have been very blessed with all the gifts that Kipling has gifted me! Let me walk you through some of the bags I own right now. I actually help out a little last year and they gave me 2 bags in return. My mom, being a fan of Kipling for the longest time, took the bags away from me right after I brought them home. Lol!
I brought their backpack and luggage to Japan with my family last year and I swear James was super jealous when I told him Kipling gifted me a luggage! Hehehe.
Traveling around with the luggage makes the entire journey so much lighter and easier – especially when we had to travel from town to town. We visited Kyoto, Osaka, Nara and 2 other places!
Other than being light, I was surprised by the compartments. They had so many compartments inside that you can stuff ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. I managed to squeeze in 3 pax worth of clothing and accessories for a good 8 days! Even though it was filled with clothes, it was not hard to bring it around because of the wide wheels underneath. I was so easy to roll them everywhere. The luggages are made of a durable material – Nylon which is able to withstand the rigors of regular travel.
Of course, all Kipling bag comes with a monkey keychain – so does the luggage! I travel out of Singapore at least 3 times a year so I am very much looking forward to my next trip with the luggage!
Next, Black and gold is my usual style when it comes to backpacks. However, I brought a colorful backpack (Sanna Print; collaboration collection with Finnish illustrator Sanna Mander) to Japan this time round! The City Park added colors to my autumn. It even comes with a limited edition Funfur Monkey keychain as well! I like this keychain more than the usual because of it’s fluffiness! 😛
I also own another bag with the same keychain! It was love at first sight with City Pack Navy Black and it is also my current favourite. This 100% leather bag is a combination of style, fun and practicality all in one! Isn’t it charming?
The drawstring pocket makes it easier for me to charge my phone with my powerbank in that compartment. I can charge and use my phone on the go without the need of holding that bulky powerbank in my hand. Easy reach pockets for the win!
I love how I can easily match my OOTD to this pretty City Pack! We can never go too wrong with black and glitters.
I will be sharing more on my Instagram how you can incorporate Kipling into your daily outfits so keep a lookout for #maybelineootd! Also check out the hashtag #MyKiplingStyle to see how other influencers style their Kipling.
Thank you blessed and Kipling for making me a happy girl! 🙂 Thank you for keeping our bags light and durable! 😀
adidas has been VERY hot lately and people are going crazy over their shoes. No doubt, us as well.
Well, Singapore is summer all year round so we get to wear sunglasses almost everyday (yay!). Be excited because adidas Originals by Italia Independent eyewear is now available in Singapore! It is also Italia Independent’s first official launch in Asia. Yay! Right here in Singapore somemore! Gracing this special evening were Mr Paolo Sasso, APAC Sales Consultant of Italia Independent and Mr George Lee, Managing Director of Sin Kwang Group.
To me, a pair of sunglasses or prescription glasses is a fashion accessory and everyone knows that on my Instagram!! We had fun trying out all the spectacles and sunglasses on the event itself.
Models also did a runway showcasing the different eyewear and looks from the latest collection. Interestingly, the drinks were also served in adidas themed – blue mocktails!
We were blown off when we saw the sunglasses. I couldn’t make up my mind if I should go for the sunglasses or prescription glasses frame because you know me – I REALLY am a sucker for glasses.
I love how slick looking they are! Some of the designs also came with a tinge of retro-ness too! The metal frames are my favourite!
I love how flat they are! It makes the entire outlook even trendier. The lenses are also treated with an internal non-glare treatment so you can read quickly, comfortably and clearly without straining your eyes.
If you prefer your shades to be more sporty, they have them in plastic frames too! Suitable for guys who wants to look extra sporty. Go on, go for them!
Not forgetting the prescription frames as well. I did not manage to take any photos of the metal frames which I personally love, but I will show them to you in another post! James and I took a few looks with the frames we got already 😀
The eyewear are all pretty unisex so you can share them with your other half anytime!
Our pick for their sunglasses! We really wanted what we wore below but they were already out of stock when we were there to redeem our eyewear 🙁 Do you trust me how popular they are now?!
adidas Originals eyewear by Italia Independent is retailing from $185 for prescription frames and $205 for sunglasses. Thank you Sin Kwang Group and Eye Trendy for bringing them in! Just so you know, they are also the sole distributor of adidas Originals Eyewear in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia!

New spectacles farm from Spectacle Hut! I picked Prada! Hehe! I was told that they provide express service like 20 minutes for single vision lenses and 4 hours for progressive lenses too! Something I don’t used to know.
Spectacle Hut carries a lot of branded eyewear brands including exclusive brands like Victoria Beckham, Loewe and so much more incase you did know!
Now you know where to do your Christmas shopping!
It’s already December in a blink of an eye and Christmas is approaching! Are you wrecking your brain thinking of a worthy gift for your Dad, brother or nephew with that dapper, stylish gentlemanly style?
Well, fret not ladies! I am here to give you some tips 😉 As much as I do interchange between various styles on a daily basis depending on the occasions/events I attend, the preppy gentlemanly style is exactly the one I adore most.
To reward my hard work for this one year, I decide to gift myself with a watch from New Fashion Watch!
Just to share a bit on New Fashion Watch (www.newfashionwatch.com), it is a new online store that sell affordable, luxury watches of different brands. Furthermore, they are the only Singapore Online watch retailer who do not sell parallel products. All product are genuine and have a valid warranty with the respective authorized service centers! They are also affiliated to H2 Hub & New Fashion Watch store (Located at Bugis+). I believe H2 Hub is no stranger to anyone because they have ten physical shops around the island so you can feel the sense of security purchasing watch from them.
Enough said about New Fashion Watch, let me share more about my new watch! *Excited*
It is an Italian brand that is gaining popularity globally.
For those who are not well versed with supercar brands nor recognize the ubiquitous Trident logo, ‘Maserati’ is a well-renowned Italian luxury car maker. To provide you some context how expensive a Maserati car is, a typical Maserati can be priced easily above SGD400K.
The watch I have selected amidst the wide collection is the ‘Fuoriclasse’ collection in Black / RoseGold Series.
Inspired by its sporty yet elegance style, the special shape of the case mimics that of an original design with grille and bolts on the lugs. This multi-function model comprises of a 42-mm diameter steel casing with rosegold PVD finishing, contrasting against a Matte Black PVD finished bezel.
One reason I picked this design is because of its excellent colour combination and classiness! Look at how the black dial brings out the rose gold details, against which the chronograph counters stand out. Attention goes all the way down to its strap which is a black printed leather strap.
To many, a newly-launched watch series born out of a luxurious car brand might not entice them especially if they are an avid, long time watch collector such as myself. Frankly as a humble collector of Rolex, Omega, Panerai and other watches, I did not think much of owning a Maserati watch at the start. Nonetheless, the attention to detail and technical attention that Maserati dedicates to their cars is clearly reflected here in its chronograph which is the reason that moved me to go for this brand & particular design!
This watch certainly grows on its bearer. One other feature I like about this watch is its versatility.
Read on to see how I matches it to my outfits when I attend my Lifestyle events!
I can choose to look Swag & Dapper in the day….
…and look Gentlemanly Stylish at night!
Who says that one watch can only stick to one style?
In fact, I have shared multiple ways of matching this watch with my #OOTDs on my Facebook and Instagram so do keep a lookout for it!! (@James_awyong)
After owning my First Maserati watch, I am sure it is definitely not the Last!
Truth be told, my other luxurious watches are currently being ignored and I am already looking to own my next Maserati watch…..
