izipizi wears reading glasses

Funky wears reading glasses

Funky wears reading glasses because he is long sighted the optician had told Funky that he had presbyopia and needed reading glasses

He had never worn reading glasses before but his friends told him that he would look good in reading  glasses and not to worry.

Which reading glasses would Funky choose and where would be buy them from?

A friend had suggested a website that sold branded reading glasses.

“I won`t  wear boring reading glasses”  said Funky.” “I will only wear reading glasses that are stylish and fashionable.”

Having looked on the eyeeyedesign website that had been recommended to him he found the izipizi brand.

” When I first looked for reading glasses I was disappointed but I now have access to a full range of fashion reading glasses in various shapes and colours that are funky, trendy and fun.” said Funky.

Over the weekend Funky bought a whole range of different styles and colours of izipizi reading glasses.


Funky now had a wardrobe of reading glasses from which to choose.

That morning Funky had decided to go to town and dressed in his jeans and t shirt.

Because he was dressing casually he had to decide which reading glasses to wear?

” In my  the opinion” Funky said “reading glasses should be something that you actually like wearing.

That suit the shape of the face and look attractive when worn. 

Because of this they should reflect the image, the look, the fashion and the personality of the wearer. That`s what my reading glasses have to do. ” 

“What will I choose today”


izipizi had named each of the shapes of their reading glasses in alphabetical order.

#A. izipizi  described as small round and discrete reading glasses. 

#B. izipizi had a  rectangular shape. Maybe he might wear these reading glasses to town

#C. izipizi Funky found this shape to have a real retro feel to them. Funky reading glasses.

They were chunky and fun and might go well with his jeans and t shirt.

#D. izipizi thought Funky were iconic and on trend reading glasses. It was one of his favourites.

#E. izipizi  Oversized reading glasses.


What a dilemma so many shapes of reading glasses to choose from but he was glad he had bought them all!


What colour reading glasses would Funky choose?

Funky went to his reading glasses wardrobe where all the reading glasses were stacked neatly with each shape and their respective colours.

” I have to decide what izipizi colour will go with my outfit.” said Funky.  Would it be blue tortoise?

” I like blue tortoise but I think that Kaki green would  also go well with my jeans and t shirt.” Funky mused.

“What a choice I have!”

Do you want to know what izipizi shape and colour Funky would wear to town?

Then be sure to come back and read about his next adventure.

mens reading glasses 2021 fashion style and quality uk

Reading glasses UK 2021

Reading glasses UK 2021.

Reading glasses in the UK in 2021 have changed dramatically. The public quite rightly seek fashion style and quality in their reading glasses and eyewear.

Gone are the days of cheap ready readers sold in shops in the UK.

Quality is a big requirement. Glasses need to last longer than a couple of weeks.

We may think of fashion trends in reading glasses in 2021 as being a relatively modern concept but we would be wrong.

It might surprise you to learn that they have a fascinating history going back 2000 years.

I would like to take you over the next few news spots on a journey through those trends to show you how we have arrived today in 2021 with modern fashion reading glasses and eyewear.

In prehistoric times it is said that an eskimo blinded by the glare of the sun on the snow carved an aperture in a piece of bone and strapped it over his eyes.

A eureka moment if ever there was one and sunglasses were invented.

They are a long way from the modern sunglass and sun reader offered by us in our I wear funky range but without that eskimo where would we be?

The first reading glasses owe much to the clergy in the middle ages.

They spent their days in monasteries writing manuscripts.

Now as in those days eyesight would deteriorate around the age of 45.

The first reading glasses were an Italian invention ( wouldn’t you know! ).

A monk called Salvino degli Armati- no not Armani! invented them.

They were rivet spectacles which must have been so uncomfortable unlike the reading glasses of 2021 worn in the UK.

Where to look for Fashion style and quality reading glasses in the UK in 2021

Check out our French brand Izipizi for great styles fashion and colour.

For fashionable women`s Reading glasses in 2021 look no further than Doubleice from Italy and their spectacular Velvet range.

For Men who like practical  the I Need You  hangovers on our sister website Funky readers might be the answer. You can also buy the Clever 2 featured in the image

With  longer temples they will hang around your neck or sit snuggly on your head.

reading glasses the funny side.

Reading glasses the funny side.

Reading glasses the funny side

Reading glasses have a funny side to them.

How do you know carrots are good for your eyes?

Because you never see rabbits wearing reading  glasses

The optician just took my glasses from me to repair them. They said they can fix it in 5 minutes.

I can’t see it happening.

Do you know that If Covid 19 has forced you or a loved one to wear a mask with your reading  glasses that you may be entitled to condensation.

An old man went to an eye specialist to get his eyes tested and asked “Doctor, will I be able to read after wearing glasses?”

Yes of course, said the doctor, why not!
“Oh How nice it would be, I have been illiterate for so long”.

On a more serious note

People come to a time in their lives when they can  become longsighted and will have to consider the less than funny option of having to wear reading glasses.

The optician will give you an eye test and examine your eyes for any more serious problems. 

If you need glasses then your prescription will detail your reading dioptre strength.

They usually are in 0.5 increments in strength. Most reading glasses on the market provide strengths from +1 to +3.5

Now you have your strength what do you choose and where do you buy them from?

Ready readers can be found in most shops but tend to be cheap and nasty. If you want something that you want to throw on and off your face then they are fine.

If you want a quality pair of reading glasses then you may have to look further.

There are many types and styles of reading glasses- coolfashiondesigner-funky etc

Decide what you want to wear. You will have to ensure that the frames will fit your face size and shape.

Colour may also be important to you.

We have a large range of reading glasses that are stylish fun and funky to choose from.

Visit our website and browse our collection.

We have a sister site Funkyreaders where you can find more brands of reading glasses for men and women.

Leaving on a funny note : I went into a sandwich shop and asked ” Can I buy a bagel with cream cheese” The shop keeper looked at me and said” No we only take cash”

Ciao for now!

reading glasses and corporate fraud

Reading glasses what do they have to do with corporate fraud?

Reading glasses what do they have to do with corporate Fraud?

Reading glasses what do they have to do with corporate fraud?

Well the answer is that in my previous life before I began selling reading glasses I advised on corporate fraud  and I have decided to publish one of my articles  to highlight the dangers of corporate fraud.

“The higher you go up the business ladder, the more likely you are to encounter corporate dishonesty.

The murky waters can soon engulf the unwary, warns criminal defence lawyer and reading glasses retailer Martin Cunningham.

Reading the corporate fraud Dilemma

It’s an everyday dilemma that all honest business people hope will never happen to them.

Someone with a position of power in an organisation that your company does business with takes you for a quiet drink and asks for a ‘backhander’.

Perhaps the request comes from someone who exercises control over a big contract.

The future jobs of half your workforce could rest on the successful outcome.

It becomes clear that the customer is not playing games.

He wants tens, even hundreds of thousands of pounds and suggests when, where and how he’d like paying.

What do you do?

The answer, in black and white terms, is that you must stick to ethical principles.

Obtaining money through deception is a crime and facilitating it makes you an accessory to crime.

This is one example of corporate fraud in action.

Reading glasses companies are not exempt from Corporate fraud.

Reading the problem can be difficult.

In some business sectors and overseas territories these standards and values simply don’t apply.

What is considered normal in UK corporate  business as a whole and many developed Western countries, may be exceptional elsewhere.

Let’s face it, in some parts of industry and many parts of the globe, including reading glasses companys illicit ‘commission’ and elaborate ‘gifts’ – or bribes – are an intrinsic part of the business and political scene.

I have known cases where expensive cars, watches, houses, boats and even funds to cover the cost of a divorce were quoted as the price of getting a smooth ride to contractual completion.

When this happens, it’s honest people with no experience of these matters who find it difficult to deal with the situation they find themselves in.

They know that if they get it wrong the contract, their own career or even their business is probably on the line.

If they succumb they’re acting illegally and risk having to face the consequences.

Trying to share the problem with trusted associates or colleagues is fraught with risks, too.

Trust can soon evaporate into a cloud of suspicion that is difficult, or impossible, to disperse.

Superiors have been known to advise middle-managers ‘don’t bring me problems – bring me solutions’ rather than risk being implicated in the mess or damage to the business.

Seeking help

One answer is to seek help from someone within your company.

Someone with a known talent for fixing such problems.

Someone with a suitably phlegmatic and worldly approach?

Perhaps he can talk face-to-face with someone at the highest level in the opposing camp and blow the whistle on the fraudster?

Unfortunately, there is no certainty that this will either salvage the contract or cause the offending head to roll.

Business life is not always that simple.

Corporate fraud and bribery

The personal shortcomings of financially productive people are sometimes conveniently overlooked,,

Especially in countries where able managers are hard and expensive to find.

There may be bigger fish to fry – or a different agenda.

Bribery is a very complex problem with significant legal, ethical and social implications.

With the probability of awkward taxation or money laundering questions being raised.

To make matters worse, in some parts of the world senior managers receive relatively poor pay.

This is on the explicit understanding that they will normally receive ‘consultancy fees’ from suppliers.

Usually paid into an off-shore trust or untraceable off-shore bank account.

Reading glasses corporate fraud and history of trade.

History of trade and commerce is littered with mechanisms to ‘express gratitude’ to those who have advanced the interests of a supplier.

At a legitimate level there are of course agency fees and sales commissions.

There are percentages and bonuses (not to mention gifts, entertainment and less tangible forms of corporate largesse).

However when the recipient is clearly in the customer’s employ, ‘gratitude’ reads ‘bribe’ to most western eyes.

When the purchaser happens to be an officer of a government or state institution it is even worse.

Deriving an illicit pecuniary advantage from the awarding of contracts strikes a blow at the very foundations of democracy, fairness and social responsibility.

But then, finding a continuous stream of orders to optimise assets and occupy a large, expensively trained workforce and satisfy shareholders in a competitive world involves heavy responsibilities, too, doesn’t it?

The bigger the sums involved, the more complex the issues become.

Second thoughts

Even the most honourable, hardworking and principled business people may have second thoughts when the contract in question has a string of noughts on the bottom line.

An additional margin may have been built into the original price structure to cover ‘unforeseen contingencies’.

To protect profitability, so no real damage would result from the additional ‘expenditure’.

This is another example of how reading corporate fraud can be difficult.

Home market corporate fraud

In the home market, it’s not unknown for influential buyers to have businesses, usually run by their spouses or relations.

They can exist solely to receive virtually untraceable favours, in the form of seemingly legitimate sales transactions.

The difficulty is always that such ‘fronts’ never compete fairly.

They exist to provide over-priced supplies that mask what are, in fact, corrupt transactions.

There are scores of such dodges and wheezes.

they can range from free holidays at the boss’s luxurious Marbella retreat to bars of gold bullion mysteriously finding their way into Swiss banks.

Ethical Crossroads

People who find themselves at the ethical crossroads can be divided into two camps.

The majority are well-intentioned, ambitious but slightly naïve owner-managers or executives.

Driven by the wish to see their business or career flourish – but who lack the moral rectitude to resist the rewards of a seemingly victimless white-collar crime.

They are the ones most likely to stumble and get caught.

Then there are the ‘doers’ whose ambition and greed has defined their ethical stance from the outset.

For them, corruption is just one of the ways things gets done in a tough world.

They’ve learnt how to be suspicious and cunning – and to cover their tracks.

Climbing the ladder

Everyone who wants to climb the ladder of business success will almost certainly reach an ethical crossroads at some point in his or her career so it’s a good idea to decide your philosophical position well in advance and prepare your response.

Many of my clients could be classed as sound, capable business people who’ve found themselves in this dilemma and hesitated to reflect on the full implications of the improper proposal put to them.

In the murky world of givers and takers, he who hesitates is presumed to be a soft touch. Vacillation is construed as acquiescence.

Wheels of corporate corruption

The wheels of corruption begin to turn almost before the unwary realise they’ve been entrapped.

Once this cycle has begun it’s doubly difficult to reverse it.

If you reject unethical approaches, you run the risk of the disappointed cheat accusing you of wrongdoing anyway – even though your hands are clean.

In either case, with careers, livelihoods, the completion of a contract or even the survival of a business in the balance, the most vigorous legal defence is appropriate.

In Britain, at least, you’re innocent of bribery and corruption until you’ve been found guilty in a court of law.

I hope the article Reading glasses corporate fraud has been of  interest and informative.

Martin Cunningham is a leading criminal lawyer and member of numerous recognised bodies and panels associated with fraud and fraud investigation.

Also available in book stores and clothing retailers and on line.

They are available in common reading prescriptions with strengths ranging from +0.75 to +3.50 dioptres.
