Ray Ban's My Favorite Shades


Ray Ban


 I don’t usually wear sunglasses because the bridge of my nose is pretty much nonexistent  so they slide off my face or there is a huge gap where my nose should be or the lenses are way too big to I end up looking like a fly. None of which are good looks. When purchasing my glasses I was given the option of a 55mm lens or the 58mm lens, if you don’t know this pertains to actual size of the lens itself. Because I didn't want them to be too big I opted for the 55mm lens and I love the fit. As you can see they still register a little big on me but hey I can deal and it is nowhere near as bad as it could be.

As for actual functionality they do keep the sunlight out of your face. For some reason with the red pair the sun seems to come through more so depending on how strong the sun is that day I still squint even with the shades on. If I had to pick a down fall with these shades that would be it, well at least when it comes to the red pair, I haven't had the problem with the other two. While I love all three I have to say the green is my favorite and will probably suit more people than the other two.




 

New In | Dolce Vita Booties

Dolce Vita Black Booties

Dolce Vita Taupe Booties

The chances of me coming across an awesome pair of boots on a random shopping trip are rare. The chances of me finding two pairs on a random trip out are really rare, but some how it happened to me on my latest outing to Nordstroms Rack.  I have been looking for a decent pair boots that mimic the vibe of the Isabel Marant Dicker boots for a while. I purposely didn't use the word dupe because I didn't want it to be an exact copy mainly because the dupes I did come across were cheaply made, poor quality suede or just plain uncomfortable. So I decided to get as close as I could to the shoe with out being a knockoff. After a year and a half of searching I gave up then came across these beauties.

Of the two the black ones are the closest but I saw the second pair fell in love with the color and decided to get them both. This purchase was pure dumb luck if you ask me. I found them in a 7 1/2 and they were the only pairs in the store. Together they cost $85.00 which is a damn good buy considering the taupe pair alone were originally $225.00. The fit is great, they are well made, sturdy and the suede feels awesome. Super glad I decided to go in and have a look around.

Smash Burger

It happened to be one of those nights when no one knew what they wanted to eat when we remembered a new burger place that opened up in Brooklyn called "Smash Burger". After all the hype I experienced with Shake Shack and Five Guys I decided not to let the rave reviews get to my head. I walked in with no expectations and I have to tell you guys... I loved it! 

I went with the Bacon Cheeseburger on an egg bun with a side of sweet potato fries but the options in this place are pretty cool. Egg bun, pretzel bun, regular fries, sweet potato fries. They even have a build your own burger so you can add or leave out whatever you want. Because I didn't want to be greedy my first time there I opted out of getting a milkshake but man oh man did they look good. I had a total Homer Simpson moment when I saw the birthday cake shake. All in all I really enjoyed the experience, my burger was nice and juicy without being greasy and it was made when ordered so it was nice and warm with perfectly melted cheese *drool* and the best part? unlike some other burger spots the line wasn't ridiculous.The only downside would have to be that I wished there was more seating but I guess you cant have it all. 

Good food, amazing company followed by damn good shopping - it was an awesome night. I don't know when we will be headed back but one thing is for sure... that birthday cake shake will be mine!! 

Guilt Free Pizza

Not the best image but I thought about taking this picture last minute after cooking dinner and I was starving so I didnt take the time to make it look pretty. Either way I thought I would share this Guilt Free pizza with you. It is super yummy and really quick to make. I should probably mention I am not a nutritionist or health guru I just thought I would share what I had for dinner.

Products
Whole Wheat Pita // Marinara Sauce // Toppings of choice (I went with mozzarella, mixed peppers, spinach and red pepper flakes)

-Spread marinara sauce on whole wheat pita, top with cheese if desired and place it in the oven at 350 degrees.

-While the pizza is baking take out a pan cover the bottom with olive oil and sauté veggies. When it comes to the veggies I eyeball the amount but it is usually a handful of spinach and a few chopped pieces of peppers. This is also where I add my spices like garlic but add what you like.

-Once the pizza is done (I usually wait until the pita is crispy) take it out of the oven and scoop the veggies on top.

and thats all folks! super easy right? if you give this a try let me know how it comes out, I would love to know if you find it as yummy as I do.
