Oakley PRIZM RX Lenses

I have been collecting sunglasses for years now. I have a special bag in my room that holds all of my trendy shades! There’s these new Oakley PRIZM sunglasses that come out today and look pretty awesome!! I can’t wait to try them out and add them to my collection.

Oakley’s full catalog will feature these new sunnies, along with other sports-specific and everyday looks as well. One of the really neat things about the Oakley PRIZM shades is that the lenses are fine-tuned to certain activities like golf, cycling, angling, and baseball. This is because they emphasize colors that the human eye is most sensitive to in specific environments and sport activities.

The main goal of the Oakley PRIZM collection is to improve athletic performance by relaxing the eye and being able to identify the unique demand on vision in varying environments. These sunglasses are actually the first ever in the eyewear industry that are built for such specific sport use!

In order to create these lenses, Oakley used specialized equipment to read wavelengths of light that are present in a variety of settings. A combination of dyes and coatings were used to develop lens that optimize the helpful light and minimize or remove the wavelengths of light that are unnecessary or hinder performance. The Oakley PRIZM lens technology makes them unrivaled in the prescription eyewear business.

These shades are one of a kind and launch today! They range in price from just $276-$322 for single vision, and $379-$494 for progressive lenses (prices don’t include frames.) You can purchase these stylish prescription sunglasses at the Salt City Optics website at: http://www.saltcityoptics.com/b/oakley-prescription-eyewear.html

Hair of the Day: Faux Hawk Edge

My lovely co-worker Ashley styled my hair! She braided 3 on-the-scalp braids on each side of my head and then brushed back all the hair in the center of my hair to create a faux hawk look. After much back combing and hair spray and a couple bobby pins, I was good to go. I even went to the gym with this hair and it stayed fairly well. I slept on it too and the next day I was able to make the hawk part even bigger in height!

Shoes of the Day: Coach Wedges

These are some new shoes I purchased this summer. I love them, they are very comfortable and fit like a glove. The straps are kind of a twisted fabric material and since they are an earthy metallic copper bronze, they match everything! I’ve walked a lot in these and haven’t developed any blisters or discomforts. My only complaint is that they are not high enough! I like my really high shoes!!

Outfit of the Day: Glossy Red and Stripes

This is the month of red I guess! All the outfits I have posted for July have red. Hmm, and stripes too.. Lol, that’s weird! I totally didn’t do that intentionally. I love this outfit because it’s simple and sleek. The cami has a lingerie feel to it and the little dolphin shorts are appealing to the eye even though the stripes are horizontal. I can’t remember where the top is from, but the shorts are from Target I believe. The shoes are Coach and they’re super comfy. Funny story about this outfit actually. A few years ago I wore this top and the bottoms to the beach and went out to eat with my family. After the meal I was walking by the bar from the bathroom, and this creepy, grody drunk man at the bar grabbed me by my stomach. He tried to offer me a drink and I remember saying no way and telling him I was only 17! It was really unsettling to me, because I don’t think this outfit is too sexy or revealing and I was just wearing sneakers with it, so it was totally dressed down to me. Anyways, this outfit lives on and I won’t let anyone stop me! Remember: If anyone ever harrasses you, it’s not your fault for what you wear or how you act. It’s the other person who is being the creep. Don’t let creepy men discourage you from living how you want to live! People over-sexualize the female body, screw what everyone thinks and dress comfy and cute!!

Review: Urban Decay All Nighter

007

I’ve used a couple makeup primers since middle or high school, but sometimes they stung my sensitive skin or felt stiff and tight. This new primer I’ve been into is Urban Decay’s All Nighter makeup setting spray. I’m pretty impressed by it. There’s no sticky or tight feeling, and I haven’t felt it burn at all! I like that it keeps my face looking like I’ve just applied the makeup, even hours and hours later. My skin doesn’t look sweaty and nothing smears. Highly recommend this!

I got this little corset top at Forever 21 many moons ago. I still love it though because it’s pretty adorable. The little skirt is one of my summer go-to pieces, it’s the Max Mara and Miley Cyrus collection. I’m actually a lot more tan in real life than in this photo. Oh well. Lol.

004

These photos are from July 4th. It was a pretty chill day. I went to Granny’s donuts, a movie, and my parents had a cookout. I ate a whole lot!

Here’s a view of how the corest clasps. I love corsets, but they aren’t the most functional things in my wardrobe. They are cute for a few hours and then I am ready to get into something looser.

Outfit of the Day: Torn up

I love cutting up my shirts!! There’s something very therapeutic about snipping things with scissors, whether it’s hair or clothes or photos for scrapbooks, it’s super relaxing to me. I took this straight edge shirt that a got a few years ago and made it more fun. It started out a little baggy, not much shape, so I fixed that by making it off the shoulder and drawing attention with  triangular spider web slits.

Outfit of the Day: Tea Length Stripes

Tags

I usually don’t wear a dress that’s this length. I guess it’s almost tea length, which can look awkward. It’s best to wear heels or wedges of some kind with a longer dress so you don’t look like the dress swallows you whole! Unless you’re super tall, then you can wear flats. Or not, depending on how intimidating you want to come off! Haha.

010

This dress kind of reminds me of the Barber Pole, which is cool since I am a cosmetologist! A neighbor gave me this dress a few years back and I decided to keep it since it’s not really my style. I’ve kind of made it my style with my stud wedges and octopus necklace though. I’d like to think that I wear my clothes and they don’t wear ME! I think I own this look, but I’m still not a huge fan of the length! It’s good to change it up every once in a while though. I don’t own a lot of red either.

Review: Drink Diffuser

Tags

, , , , ,

Back around the holidays I got this water diffuser bottle that I had been wanting to check out. It’s turned out to be pretty awesome. I wanted something healthy that tastes good as well. I got sick of bottled water!!

All you do is unscrew the top, chop up some fruit, and dump them in with some fresh, filtered water. After sitting a couple of hours, the water will absorb flavor and sometimes color from the fruit. If the fruits are fresh, you can leave them for about a week before you’ll want to trash it and start over with new fruit and water.

001

I have tried out a lot of different waters. I’ve made lemon, lime, orange water, strawberry, blueberry, raspberry water,  cucumber, strawberry water, and watermelon, strawberry water! I’ve actually tried more than that, but you get the point. (Yes, there’s a pattern with straberries, I guess they are good with everything!) I would say that my favorite, the sweetest one, is the watermelon water.

There’s health benefits to this diffuser, not just because it’s water, but the fruits are raw and contain vitamins. Lemon is known to help detox the bottle, cucumber hydrates,  and blueberries and strawberries provide anti-aging elements.

Bag of the Day: Best of Both Worlds

Today I am sharing with you one of my all time favorite purses. I have had this pretty thing since I was a high schooler. It was a gift from my mom. I like how it’s monogrammed. That’s always prevalent in southern fashion. Girls around here love to have their initials or full name on things, I guess we just like to be known, as well as organized!
