Sophia Visanji is kind of a Clark Kent. By day, the Canadian turned New Yorker is an optometrist. The rest of the time, she’s the Monocle Muse.
That’s the name she came up with for her alter ego, blog, and Instagram account, where she mixes cool eyewear with street-style trends, sprinkling in glimpses of her world travels (and her Canadian roots).
“Optometry is great and I enjoy it, but I’ve always been creative and loved photography, fashion, design, and art,” says Visanji. “So early 2016, I decided to start blogging. At first it was a passion project; now it’s grown to the point where I’ve had to go down to four days in the office.”
Speaking of her 9-to-5, Visanji recently moved from her midtown Manhattan office to a new one on the Upper West Side. “It’s medically inclined versus retail oriented, so I’ll be dealing more with ocular disease, which is really interesting to me,” she says. “It’s a little less fast-paced and more family-focused.”
“I love to play dress up, and I want to be able to wear whatever I’m in the mood for.”
To prepare for her new venture, Visanji decided to take the two-week #OlayBodyWashChallenge. “My skin can get super dry. I think it’s a combination of the weather, heating and air-conditioning, and not always drinking enough water,” she says. “It’s not such a big deal when I’m in my white coat at work. But outside of the office, I love to play dress up, and I want to be able to wear whatever I’m in the mood for.”
So for two weeks, she replaced her usual cleansing products with Olay Body Ultra Moisture With Shea Butter and nixed any additional body lotions, creams, and oils. "I loved the scent and the creamy feel of the body wash," says Visanji. "By the end of the challenge, my skin was noticeably smoother and brighter. I felt like I was glowing—and that helped me feel totally prepared going into my first day at my new office. I was confident that I looked great, and as a result, I felt amazing and was able to perform at my best."
