Lifestyle: Sunglasses for the fashion and fab – why you need one

Hi Everyone! Sorry I haven’t been posting regularly but I have good news! I’m planning my next holiday, which is in April! 🙂 I’m super excited and looking forward to spending some time with family, soaking up some sunshine and doing some major shopping!

If you ask a few fashionistas about their favorite accessory, you will probably get a few different answers. Some feel like Cinderella every time they try on a new pair of shoes, and others feel naked without the proper handbag. Others will tell you no outfit is complete without a statement necklace, but most of them will agree that sunglasses are a necessity. And here’s why I agree:

1. No other accessory can replace makeup. Have you ever had a bad day, leaving the house in a hurry without any time to put on “your face”? That’s probably one of the best examples of how sunglasses can save the day, covering any lack of sleep, under eye circles or lack of makeup. You will look polished and ready for everything with just the quick gesture of putting them on.

2. No other accessory is so healthy to wear. Sure, heels may help you look taller, but they’re also ready to kill your feet whenever given the chance. Sunglasses, however, are always comfortable, and they don’t only protect your eyes against bright lights and glare, but also against harmful UV rays.

3. They’re affordable. Designer bags and jewelry will often reach astronomical prices. Even the biggest sales are not that affordable for common people. When it comes to sunglasses, however, that’s where you can afford to wear your favorite designer! Depending on the brand, prices will start as low as R500, while high quality is still ensured.

4. They’re customizable. Sunglasses usually come in a number of colors for each style. You can start with your favorite one, and then continue from there to make them your own. DIY is very trendy these days, so you can go ahead and add nail polish, studs or rhinestones to your old frames when you get bored with them.

5. They make you feel like a star. Celebrities have their own various reasons for wearing sunglasses: trying to conceal their identity, covering a sleepless night. But when you put on those gorgeous cat eyes, don’t you feel like the paparazzi are all over you? Don’t you feel the glamour of the red carpet, too? There’s nothing like a good pair of sunglasses to make you feel like a mysterious starlet on her way to Hollywood fame.

Happy chappy in my sunglasses indeed!

Lookbook: It’s a Stripes Kinda Day

 

Happy Monday everyone! I was feeling especially casual over the weekend so for this cookbook post I braved it and left my hair undone, shoved on my 80’s shorts with a loose striped top I got from Forever New over 2 years ago and slipped on my Converse sneakers and I was ready for the day. I had my nails done over the weekend, at the usual place (Body Sense Boutique at Nicolway) and decided on a rather bright colour called “Big Apple Red” by O.P.I Gel polish and I’m really loving it. I had my nails filed short because I think bright reds look better on shorter nails rather than long, I’m really not trying to re-create Cruella Devil here 🙂

Lifestyle: Yamitsuki Restaurant Review

Happy Friday! I was dying for some Jap cuisine a few weeks back and I found a little gem in Bedfordview… although extremely far for me, we made my way there on a beautiful Sunday night and we thoroughly enjoyed the vibe as well as the food. Yamitsuki, as you may have guessed already, serves Japanese cuisine. There are 2 parts to the restaurant, there’s a tepanyaki part and a sushi bar part, we chose to sit at the tepanyaki bar because there’s just that comfort when you watch your food being made (ok I find comfort in that). I was not only impressed with the food but the restaurant was very clean and neat (which is how restaurants should be) and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I had some miso soup for starters along with some sushi, calamari with noodles for mains and Nutella pancake for dessert. It was heaven 🙂

I would definitely go there again because the prices were reasonable and the food was absolutely delish! I definitely recommend Yamitsuki if you’re having a sushi craving. It’s not those type of sushi where it’s made so badly that the rice falls apart once you dip it in the soya sauce, it actually stays together! 🙂 Hope you enjoyed this post!
