Warby Parker… Their Eyewear is Awesome and I Love My Selection!

9 Feb

Last month, I took a trip down to Soho, New York based on a recommendation by Gayle King.  She recently visited Warby Parker to select new frames.  Based on her rave review, I said let me go see too!

There are various showrooms in New York, however there are additional showrooms across the country!  Not one near you, don’t worry – Warby Parker has this great program for anyone who love convenience!

Get this! They will send you up to 5 pairs of glasses to try on at home for 5 days free, even include a pre-paid return shipping label to send them back to Warby Parker with no obligation to buy (this is offered to anyone in the contiguous 48 states).

And…..if you’re not 100% satisfied with your new glasses for any reason (any reason), call them or send an email  –  a pre-paid return shipping label will be sent allowing you to return your glasses for free. Not even a question asked!

Great styles, great selections and a friendly staff I found at the SoHo showroom!  I love their dove-gray and signature blue eyeglass case! Not to mention, their website takes in consideration the customer who wears glasses!  Great fonts, easy to read and not too much, but just enough information to get on your way to do a selection with their virtual models!

However, the most important thing that I love about Warby Parker is for every pair purchased, they give a pair to someone in need!

Eye exams and eyeglasses can be quite costly.  I without a thought, get my routine exam and every year look to see the latest frame styles! As for others, it’s a struggle just to obtain an examination and then glasses.

Warby Parker’s co-founder Neil Blumenthal previously served as VisionSpring’s director and helped pioneer VisionSpring’s model to train low-income women to sell affordable glasses in their communities.

By doing this jobs are created, glasses are provided to customers who lose or break them; plus prescriptions!   It’s trickling down effect which does good work! Wonderful work by Warby Parker and Vision Spring!

So you want to see the frames I selected with my prescription?  Well watch!

 

Warby Parker Thank You!

Oprah’s Lifeclass with Tony Robbins! Biggest Classroom in NYC, Radio City Musical Hall!

3 Apr

Press releases and small talk about OWN Network, not favorable!  What is?  When you are building a network, you are bound to have setbacks and mistakes.  However, Ms.  Winfrey – practices what she preaches…..you learn from the mistakes and make changes!

However, there is one thing that hasn’t change – is her wish to make the world better.  To teach and let people know that you can grow and still make the effort to change.  I always say that change is good; it puts you in a place that is uncomfortable and forces you to do things differently!

Last year, Oprah Winfrey introduced her Lifeclass Series on her network, OWN; sharing her ideas and thoughts of the things she has learned during producing  the Oprah Winfrey Show!

As if that wasn’t enough, she is taking her teaching on tour!!  Taking her talented and inspirational friends to show us in a personal way that it can happen….CHANGE!  I wanted to be part of it!

I was granted the greatest opportunity to attend!!!!

It was such a very exciting week in NYC,  Figure Skating in Harlem was honoring Vera Wang at the Wollman Rink in Central Park, along with Rhonda Ross and Ellen Lowey – where  Diana Ross was in town to celebrate with her daughter.

Then you have Oprah at CBS Studios, guest on the CBS Morning show with Erica Hill, Charlie Rose and her dearest friend Gayle King  – promoting her Lifeclass event being held at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall and discussing her team’s new strategy for OWN Network.  Here I was back and forth, each minute as important as the minute that passed, I was coordinating the finalization of a job; which went from a 3 hour job that turned into 6 hours!  Let’s say you would think I was cloned, but I was able to get everything done (the check ins, will calls and authorizations).  SUPERWOMAN!!!

There were two classes to be held at Radio City Music Hall!

I choose the evening class!  Tony Robbins was the guest speaker for the evening class and let’s say the evening was intense; like a rock concert full of excitement!   Mr. Tony Robbins equals INTENSITY.

Let’s say if you were coming to class, with pen and paper to take notes…it was not that kind of class!   Jumping, laughing, yelling was being done……a complete wake up session.   Oprah also was very enthusiastic and so helpful in getting you to know whatever you are afraid of it, you can definitely overcome to achieve.

“The past does not equal the future, unless you live there!”

To watch the live stream for the event, you can click this url: Oprah’s Live Class with Tony Robbins.

By all means, you don’t have to miss out on the classes, there are more scheduled throughout the year , just log on to www.oprah.com for listings and if you want more of Mr. Intensity Tony Robbins, he has a new show on the OWN Network!

Well my adrenalin never subsided; here I was around 1 am in the morning near 42nd Street and who could n’t ignore acting like a tourist!  With a quick bite to eat, getting M&Ms at their signature store and me chanting YES, YES , YES and YES among a bunch of strangers;  I would say that I had an awesome evening!

Thanks Oprah!!!!
