About MGAM (MyGlassesAndMe)

The blog started out as a platform for me to talk about being an optical wearer, about my experiences and how I view eyewear. Over time the blog grew organically, and I have branched out and put the focus on fashion, anything I feel is relevant to eyewear or being a specs wearer. Now, MGAM is a “we”, a Limited Company striving to put eyewear firmly on the fashion radar.

Over the last 6 years, we have covered some exciting optical events from eyewear launches to the Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year Award. As well as the glitzy, glamorous stuff, we have also worked for some big major eyewear and fashion companies in the past few years.

So far it has been an amazing 6 years for MGAM. It has gone from me writing just about my experiences to writing professionally about eyewear for various companies, and we are still growing. MGAM is always looking at ways to expand and work with various brands on collaborations and different social media/digital campaigns, so if you feel we fit your brand, then please do not hesitate to get in touch! Our door is always open or visit the “Work With Us Section” to find out some of MGAM past projects.

The Founder & Editor In Chief

Ok, deep breath… from Hong Kong Originally, lived in the UK for over 20 years, fashion lover, love a good pair of glasses, happily married, mummy of one (and one to come), love eating a good bit of steak, totally obsessed with long curled eyelashes, a Sex and The City enthusiast and of course, the founder of MyGlassesAndMe and MGAM Acuity.

The journey started back in July 2011 when I worked in the world of fashion PR. I have worn glasses from the age of 12 but originally hated them. I learned over the years to love them. From working in the world of fashion, I felt glasses have always been tarred with the “unfashionable brush” and it was time someone put a stop to it, and so MGAM was born.

Work With Us

MGAM offers a range of services for the optical sector. Our three most popular requests are guest writing for our client’s website/blog, eyewear/product reviews and sponsored posts via the MGAM blog.

For any writing requests, a topic is agreed by both parties and will be set before any writing commences and MGAM alway pride ourselves in giving honest reviews (even with sponsored blog posts). We always find out about the brand first before agreeing to anything to ensure it is a good fit with what MGAM is all about. We do not just take your money and write a raving review, sorry, we like to keep it honest. We write what we are passionate about in order to keep the integrity of the blog which we have built over the past six years.

With optical shows and trade bodies, MGAM is there to report on the shows and to handle social media activities. From live tweeting, instagramming to speaking to exhibitors and reporting on any new cool brands.

If you are interested in how MGAM can collaborate with your business, then please get in touch. The above are just some examples of what we have done in the past. We can tailor a package specifically for your business needs.
