How to Look Fashionable with Eyeglasses


Fashion speaks one's personality, you can never compare one's personality to another. It is a unique identity that a person can be identified with. To wear what is comfortable for you is what fashion is all about. Accessories can add up to your fashion get-up, as it also signifies culture, tradition, health concern, and beliefs.  



Nowadays, eyeglasses- whether prescription eyeglasses frames or just accessory that can be associated with fashion. I remember during earlier years when I was in high school, wearing eyeglasses can be daunting and it can limit your activities like joining school activities that require no wearing of eyeglasses, so as a teenager and eager to do things with friends and classmates it became a hindrance.

Today, eyeglasses can be worn aesthetically and medically at the same time. You can have your pair of eyeglasses as trendy and fashionable as you wanted. The variety of designs, materials, and, brands can give you that decision on what you want for a specific occasion. You can have sporty eyeglasses for sports purposes, prescription cateye eyeglasses for an office outfit accessory or even a half rim glasses frames for more sophisticated and fashionable look. 


For female office attire, you can style with a pair of sleek dark pants, and white or cream colored long sleeves ensemble, you can add up a jacket for a more formal look. For accessories, you can wear gold earrings, watch, and, bangles. For shoes, a black one to two inches heeled shoes that is comfortable when you walk around can be a nice match. For office bag, leather bag whether black or earth colored with no print will add more chicness to this style. 

When you are about to leave the office and want to hit the gym, a perfect sized gym bag along with your pair of gym shoes, sweatpants, gym clothes that are made with Lycra material which doesn't absorb sweat (always bring an extra pair). And, do not forget your eyeglasses when in the gym or outside sports activities. It can protect your eyes and prevent it from additional visual damage. 
Things to remember when wearing eyeglasses: 

  1. Make sure you have the right eyeglasses prescription. 
  2. Always visit your eye doctor for a check-up.
  3. Proper care for your eyes when wearing specific prescribe glasses.
  4. Clean your glasses.
  5. Add your glasses as an accessory for a more fashionable look.
  6. Always wear your outfit as comfortable as possible. 
  7. Be unique!

My First Payment from Google AdSense!



What is Google AdSense?


Google AdSense is a program run by Google that allows publishers in the Google Network of content sites to serve automatic text, image, video, or interactive media advertisements, that are targeted to site content and audience. - Wikipedia 
In this post, I will share with you my journey to the first payment I received from Google AdSense.

I started blogging around 2010, it was never a serious thing for me. I was hesitant to put myself, stories, and experiences out in public, alongside with the reasons of not being accepted in the blogging community. Frankly speaking, the drives that pushed me to post my first entry up was to generate income. Back then blogging was the newest online platform where you can speak of anything you wanted to say, I have also read that through blogging you can earn. The practical side of me stepped-in and told myself that I will learn the how to's of blogging. 

I posted my first entry, taught myself how to navigate Blogger, continuously editing the look of my page according to what I wanted my readers to see. It was a continuous process. It wasn't easy especially when you are starting and learning the online world. I built my social media channels, I purchased my domain name under Namecheap and it is now running for more than two years, I applied for Google AdSense- this was my primary goal at first, I didn't know that my journey to getting accepted to Google AdSense platform will be that easy.  

My first GA application was November 2010, I was denied due to website content. I was never expecting it to be approved that time, I knew that my website under the subdomain of Blogger lacks everything. I just wanted to know what and how the application looks like. 

After five years of generating traffic, updating the posts as much I can, be visible on social media channels and gain friends online which helped me along the way in building my presence and my website. It was August 2015 when my Google approved and placed ads on bits-en-pieces. While it was generating ads already, I requested to Google the delivery of the PIN (Personal Identification Number), this is what I need for my mailing address I placed on my AdSense to get verified, which on their instructions will be delivered through the mail. I have reached the requests limit that took me around six-nine months. I never received that PIN. 
Another alternative way to get verified is to scan or attach an image of any billing document that states the same address in Google AdSense to your house address. I did that and received the verification after a couple of days. 

It was November 2016 that I started to get reports of my earnings, after 18 months to date, I received my first payment from Google AdSense!

Last month, around the end of April, my account reached the minimum threshold of $100 to receive payment. I did some research about the process of payment, and as expected, payment was generated 21st of the succeeding month. This morning when I checked my Google AdSense account and it prompted a generated amounting to US$103.72 on hold. I was expecting the verified amount until the 26th, but a few hours later I received an email that I can now claim my payment. 
To check the status of your earnings: 

  • login to your Google AdSense account - <Home>
  • check <Balance>, click <View Payments> 
  • under Transaction, click <View Transactions>
  • appears the <Detailed Transaction View>, it can be selected according to your needed details. 

For this current month, Google sent me a clickable link with details in securing my payment. 
I went to the nearest Western Union which was my preferred payment mode, along with the details such as:


  1. Sender's name-
    Google Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd.
    70 Pasir Panjang Road, #03-71, Mapletree Business City, Singapore 117371
  2. Western Union MTCN
  3. My name
  4. Amount of payment 
  5. Other details (types of identification needed for the payee to bring).


It took only ten minutes for Western Union to process my transaction. From US$103.72 WU deducted 0.31usd for the documentary stamp and converted the payment to Philippine peso. US$103.41 x Php51.63 (exchange rate), I took home Php5,339.38.

After eight years of my first knowledge about Google AdSense, I got my first payment! :) I am a happy camper with Google AdSense!
