Health Benefits of Sunglasses

For some people, eye health is not at the top of their priority list. Many possible ways you could damage your eyes are not always apparent! However, wearing sunglasses can provide many benefits you may not realize.

  1. Preventing eye conditions: UV rays are not only dangerous for your skin. UVA/UVB light can cause major issues, or even diseases, with your eyes. From cataracts to macular degeneration, throw on some shades to reduce the risk of any problems.
  2. Physical protection: Sunglasses are actually a great way to protect the outside of your eyes. From the sand at the beach to even dust in the air at home, outside elements can cause severe damage to the surface of your eyes.
  3. Decreasing risk of skin cancer: You read that right. Over 10% of all skin cancer diagnoses occur on the eyelid.

To fully enjoy the benefits of sunglasses, it’s important to purchase the right ones. For one, make sure the frames properly cover your face and eye area. You should also look for lenses that that block out 99-100% UV radiation. Keep your eyes safe this summer!

Must-Have Accessories in Your Closet

Some of the most important, yet overlooked, pieces in a wardrobe are accessories. It always so necessary to accessorize properly to have a well put together look. Not sure which ones to buy? Check out some of my must-have items in my closet:

Statement Necklaces. Probably my favorite on the list—sometimes a fun, chunky necklace is all you need to spruce up a plain outfit. You can pair plain metals with a pattern, or you can get a colorful one to wear with neutrals!

Fashion Belts. A good belt is obviously helpful in many ways, but a good-looking belt can really tie an outfit together. If you’ve got a tucked shirt, get creative and branch out with your belt choices!

Killer Shades. I’m a sucker for a stylish pair of sunglasses. Not only do they keep your eyes healthy and safe, but they also totally make you look put together!

A Good Bag. From leather to suede, finding your perfect purse is such a great feeling. It’s always a good idea to have a variety of sizes and colors in your collection.

Time to go shopping!
