Best Sunglasses For Your Face Shape


ICU Black Retro Cat Eye Sunglasses
One of the best thing about summer is you can rock your sunglasses all you want!  This season I ordered some online.  I have never bought sunglasses online before.  I love buying things online these days because I buy less stuff impulsively and save a ton of time.  The problem with buying sunglasses online though is that you can't try them on.  How do you know what will look good if you can't try them on?  Well before placing my order for some sunglasses with ICU eyeware, I researched into what works best for my face shape (oval).  Apparently I can wear any style and look good.  Well that made my day!  I opted for the classic styles from ICU with a hint of fun.  I choose 4 different cat eye styles: Tortoise cat eye in brown and yellow, cat eye with brown leatherette, and black retro cat eye (pictured above). They also have some great styles in their ecoline which uses recycled materials. Can you tell I like cat eyes? Puuur...haps it's because I like cats?

Big Sexy Vintage Voluminous Sixties Retro Hairstyle Tutorials


Unfortunately there is no tutorial for this modern version of a 60s do but with the tutorials below I'm sure you could figure it out!  Image via
Inspiration
I've always loved big teased long hair with a bit of a throwback to the sixties, especially with pale glossy lips and black eye liner and mascara (just don't go to literal 60s make-up so it doesn't look like a costume).  The bigger and pouffier (is that even a word?)the better.  Harken your inner Bridget Bardot, Priscila Presley, Jean Shrimpton,and Sophia Loren. Think big long and styled but in a sexy bed head kind of way. Total sex kitten.  Pair it with a sun dress, little black dress, or a black turtle neck and jeans for a full proof knock out look.

Free Twisted Rib Large Mug Cozy Knitting Pattern with Videos



Last year I created this pattern for my super duper huge mug (holds about 3 cups) that I use to drink coffee every mourning from. I couldn't find any patterns to fit my huge mug so I decided to make up my own pattern!  I've been using my mug cozy for over a year now and I love it.  It's even great for keeping smoothies in the summer cold which I live in on the summer.  I have certainly gotten a lot of use out of my mug cozy!
