Students, the end is near and the light at the end of the tunnel gets brighter everyday. With that the excitement of finding your summer home or for some moving home is upon you as well and if your anything like me this causes more stress then family drama at Christmas.

Pack this, move this, throw this out – the process of moving can take days and weeks and lets not forget that once you get all your junk (because really 99% of what we move is junk) to the new location you have to UNPACK – UGH THE HORROR.

So although it is exciting the long dread process can be managed with these few tips to help your moving go a little quicker and easier:

1. Start early. Take rooms/areas on day by day instead of trying to do it all in one

2.BUY storage totes. Card board boxes are so passe and storage totes are the gift that keeps on giving

3. PURGE. No you don’t need to keep that one pencil and half used loose leaf or you know that shirt that’s too small – ya you won’t fit in it as quick as you think! (Plus new clothes are much more fun!)

Blinded By the Light

Sunglasses Season.

Not only are they a fabulous fashion accessory, sunglasses are a key factor when it comes to maintaining good eye health. Think about how we rely and under appreciate the value of clear eyesight.

Now that the sun is FINALLY starting to come out from hiding, it’s time to dig out your shades and make them apart of your everyday routine.  But why, you ask? Dr. Kerry Beebe, O.D. from FOX News will tell you 5 good reasons why!

1. UV Protection … Need I say more?

2. Blue-Light Protection. Long-term exposure to the blue and violet portion of the solar spectrum has been implicated as a risk factor for macular degeneration, especially for individuals that are “sun sensitive.”

3. Comfortable vision, because we all know how annoying it can be to be blinded by the light

4. Dark adaptation. Spending just two or three hours in bright sunlight can hamper the eyes’ ability to adapt quickly to nighttime or indoor light levels. This can make driving at night after spending a day in the sun more hazardous.

5. Skin Cancer. Cancer of the eyelids and skin around the eyes is more common than people think. People should wear sunglasses outdoors whether they are working, driving, participating in sports, taking a walk, running errands or doing anything in the sun.

So ladies, it’s time to go shopping ! Here’s a little something from me to you  –  a complete sunglasses guide to help you pick the best shape and size that fits your beautiful features!
