Putting the Sex in Spex

The search for love is eternal and most people have a “type.” Now folks who are only interested in someone who wears glasses are in luck! Move over MeetSingleFarmers.com, there’s a new niche dating site called Spex (www.spex.dating). With the tagline “Putting the sex back into wearing specs,” the site caters exclusively to the bespectacled “who fancy glasses-wearers.” Bring it Valentine’s Day!  hellogigles.com


If You Need a Plan B

A band of fire surrounds them.” Luckily, today we have drops for that sort of thing. dangerousminds.net

The MVP of Eyewear Customers

The Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50 last year, partially thanks to a solid defense from game MVP Von Miller. This summer Miller signed a 6-year, $114.5 million contract to remain a Bronco. Recently, The Bleacher Report’s Adam Lefkoe toured Miller’s Denver mansion, where he discovered the linebacker’s 150-plus pair eyewear collection. Denver ECPs get ready, Miller is sure to stock up on more if the Bronco’s make it to Super Bowl LI on Feb. 5.  bleacherreport.com
