Sunglasses aren’t just for complementing your bikini while you lounge on the beach. They’re a must for protecting your eyes from UV damage. Sunglasses also shield the eyelids and the skin around your eyes, helping to prevent wrinkles and skin cancer. But before you run out and drop a small fortune on a pair, here are some things to consider.

  • UV protection is most important: UV rays can damage the eyes causing cataracts, benign growths on the eye’s surface, and snow blindness, a temporary and painful sunburn of the eye. As mentioned above, it can also lead to skin cancer around the eye, so make sure your pair guarantees 100 percent UV protection.
  • Polarized lenses have nothing to do with UV protection: Polarized lenses act as a filter to absorb light waves, which helps to reduce glare that bounces off smooth surfaces like pavement or water. While they’re great for offering clearer vision in extreme sun, being labeled “polarized” has nothing to do with how well they protect the eyes.

    I just received a thank-you card from my cousin Maddie in the mail for her high school graduation gift Tiffany co outlet. She told me I had to write about the wristlet I got her, so here I am. Actually I can’t believe I did not mention this chic little wristlet by Prada outlet earlier. My cousin, like many of you out there, is not a huge fan of a signature print (Like the C’s on Coach Outlet Online bags, etc). So when I was shopping for her, I wanted to get her something small and practical to use in college that was not hugely flashy. This is where the Coach outlet Store Online Hamptons Leather Large Wristlet came into play. As I walked into Coach and gandered at the wristlets (because what college girl would not need a wristlet for everyday use), I realized most of the wristlets were full of the Coach Signature ‘C’ logo pattern. But then I saw this beauty. The Hamptons leather wristlet showed off perforated detail and pebbled leather. It was exquisite.

    One of the most well-known brands in the handbag world is Coach. Both men and women recognize the Coach Outlet logo and millions continue to support Coach Outlet Usa season after season. Established in 1941 as a family run workshop in Manhattan, Coach quickly became renown not only for their style but also quality. With an expanding company and product line, we continue to expect and be given innovative lines and multiple collections every season.
    We were given the opportunity to review the upcoming Coach Outlet Store Online Kristin Collection which is set to launch online and in stores on November 1st, 2009.

The colors used for this line are soft and elegant, including shades of coral, pink, ivory, and burnished amber.

    We were the first to showcase the Beats By Dre kristin collection with you in August of 2009. Since then, the Kristin collection has turned into one of the most coveted and acclaimed lines by Beats. Back in October of last year, Vlad and I previewed Beats By Dr Dre’s Spring collection, in which the Kristins were well represented.
    For Spring 2011 the Monster Beats Norge takes center stage in their line yet again.Nye Beats By Dre still offers their Poppy collection for those that want the glitz and fun, their monogram bags for those that want to sport the brand’s recognized logo, but the Kristin collection fits into its own sleek and refined category that I absolutely appreciate and adore.It is the many options that make the Kristin Collection my Beats By Dre for this week.
