This post is brought to you by iframes. All opinions and cool shades are my own.
Right up there among the essentials in my Mama handbag, you will find anti-bacterial hand gel, a couple of estranged Thomas Train engines, an unloved T-Rex toy and of course, sunglasses.
I don’t know about you but I can’t leave the house without them.
Otherwise, the morning sun glare turns me into a vampire and I quietly shrink into the shadows.
Those are the days I’ve lived on 3 hours sleep, fighting a stubborn twitch in my left eye as a result and I’m desperate to get a caffeine fix from my local dealer, er…I mean barista.
It’s another one of those luxuries I’ve sacrificed since having children – the proud possession of designer sunglasses.
Way back before twinions, I would pop on a pair of Ray Ban aviators.
And while yes, admittedly I may own lots of pairs now, none of them are worth a cent more than $10.
I’ve lost count how many times Mr Surfer have pinched a pair of mine (forgetting his own were sitting on his head). Subsequently, he sat on them.
Those trying moments when they’ve been whipped off my face, smashed on the shopping mall floor thanks to a wrestling toddler in mid tantrum.
I’m not ashamed of my countless collection of the cheap kind.
When your hair is constantly disheveled and your tired face is forever flustered, quick and immediate access to a pair of big, dark sunglasses will fix any dire situation.
Although, now I’m a working Mama and always on the road, maybe it’s time to treat myself to something classy.
Like some funky Prada sunglasses.
I know there are many who think online shopping is a risky affair.
The team at iframes provides a great range of current styles of eyewear from authentic brands with free delivery.
Even if you don’t like how they sit, you can return them – item and packaging in original condition – within 100 days of purchase.
Five years ago when I was too busy holding a babe in each arm, fashion was the last thing furthest on my mind.
Now though, the twinions are a little older and life seems to be a little (dare I say, touch wood) calmer, the future’s getting brighter.
I gotta wear shades.
Do you own a favourite pair of sunnies? When was the last time you lost them? Did you find them on your head?
