Being Fashionable In Reading Glasses

I don’t know if you noticed but it seems to me that more and more people need reading glasses now than ever before and at a younger and younger age too. I think it must be because of the over-use of computer, mobile devices and other electronic gadgets that cause us to strain our eyes.

Because of this unfortunate trend, I think it is a great idea to venture into selling of reading glasses. Yes, some people may not think this is a lucrative business but if you are buying Wholesale Reading Glasses at a low cost and selling them one by one at retail price, I am sure it all adds up.

I believe that as more and more people’s eyes age faster now, these people would want to look fashionable even when wearing readers. They don’t want to look dead in wearing the kind of readers that our grandparent’s generation had to wear. The bottom line is that now, people have a choice. They can still look stylish wearing readers if they want to.

If you are thinking of going into business, you may want to consider giving these people that choice. So first, your will have to procure your wholesale readers but remember to buying low and selling higher is just one aspect of making a profit. You will still have to provide your buyers with quality products and unmatched customer service!

Luxury Watches For The Rich

A couple of months ago, my friend told me that he bought an expensive watch. I asked him how much he spent and he quoted a four figure amount and I nearly fainted. Of course, it is not as expensive as Patek Phillipe watches but it is still expensive to me.

However, my friend justified his extravagance by saying that a watch is something that a father passes to his son, just like mothers will pass jewelry to the daughters, sort of like a family heirloom! Based on this theory, my friend says that he has to buy a good watch that will last through generations.

My friend confessed that at first, he wanted to buy Breitling watches as their designs caught his fancy but unfortunately, these are out of his league. I am sure you know that these high end watches like Breitling, Corum, Patek Philippe, Rolex and Van Cleef & Arpels could only be afforded by the filthy rich like celebrities and royals.

Talking of luxury watches, I still “owe” my friend a Vacheron Constantin. Hah…. he requested that for his birthday last year. I think I will just send him a photo of the watch 😀

Right To Be Debt-Free

It is everybody’s right to lead a debt-free life but that is not possible in today’s modern world. I know quite a few people who are so heavily in debt from over changing their credit cards without being able to settle their bills at the end of the month.

What these people need is the ability to manage their finances well. I also discovered that they are actually also not able to manage their debts well. I think that for people like these, they would be better to see request for professional debt management service like the one being offered by Consumer Credit Management Services, Inc. This is a non-profit organization and it is their aim to help everyone be debt-free through credit counselling.

I think that this is a very valuable service considering that more and more people are getting into a financial fix due to the misuse of credit cards!

Starting An Online Business

The other day, someone wanted to know what is the capital required to start an online business. Well, the beauty of online businesses is that we can start one without too much capital. I know a friend who only started with RM200 selling Discount Sunglasses on eBay.

Of course, with a tight budget, she had to really hunt for a supplier of Wholesale Discount Sunglasses and could not afford to waste money. Even so, having a small start up capital is no excuse to procure inferior quality goods.

Luckily for her, she managed to get a good source for Wholesale Discount Sunglasses and has been doing good business ever since.

I did ask her why she thought that there would be a market for sunglasses, and she said that it’s a fashion item that young people and people who are young at heart would always want to look good, hence changing their sunglasses ever so often. Moreover, living in Malaysia, where we get the sun half the year, there are not many people here who do not own at least a pair of sunglasses!

Nudie Jeans Making A Splash

A friend asked me to check out the online boutique at She said that there are nudie there and I did not know what she meant :-) Turns out that they are actually jeans. Yes, you heard me right! also carries a brand name called Seven For All Mankind, or just Sevens for short. This is apparently based on the belief that the average American owns seven pairs of jeans. I do not know if it means seven pairs of jeans at any one time or seven pairs of jeans in a lifetime. What I do know is that I only have two pairs so there is still plenty of room for more pairs of jeans for my wardrobe.

Now that I know what nudie jeans are, I think that I should get them but according to y friend, I would not be able to buy them locally and would have to buy them online from I am fine with online shopping so that is not a problem with me.

If you are thinking of adding new stuff to your wardrobe this holiday season, why now check out nudie jeans from Jeans are evergreen and they never go out of style; at least not in my book!

Have You Heard Of Koodos?

Over lunch today, I heard my colleague talking about Koodoos and I had no clue what she was talking about. She said that it’s a fashion house so I pretended that I know what she is talking about but I am ultra clueless when it comes to fashion.

When I came home, I quickly logged on the internet to get up-dated. hehe

So, Koodos is actually an online mall specialising in discounted designer handbags, apparel, shoes and accessories for men and women. Here, not only will you be able to browse through one or two or even three designer brands but a whopping SIXTY major labels and counting! If you feel intimidated with the sheer number of items on the site, fret not. You can shop by brand name or category so it’s fairly simple to navigate to look for items from your favourite designers.

I am so proud to note that even our local Penang-born shoe designer, Jimmy Choo, is included on Koodos. There’s no denying that he has a very creative mind when it comes to shoe designing. Just take a look at those boots! Can anyone actually wear them?

Actually, I used to think that it would save us a lot of money if we buy imitation designer fashion but now that I am more mature, I know that one look by people who know fashion would see through it that I am not wearing authentic designs. Just like pirated software or music CDs, if we were to wear imitation designer fashion, we are not supporting the hard work of designers. This will discourage them and rob them of their rightful earnings. If they are disheartened with all the copy cats then I think we can say farewell to good fashion!
