Bring on the Sunnies:RayBan Giveaway!

 photo IMG_9609_zps86ee7f11.jpg 
I am so excited to share today's giveaway with you! The amazing folks over at SmartBuyGlasses.ca offered me up a pair of new sunglasses for this Spring. There are definitely perks to blogging, and offers of free stuff from time to time is up near the top of the list of those perks. For some reason I always feel slightly 'fake' when I consider the offers and don't have something equally as awesome to also share with you, so in those cases I prefer to either just pass up the offer or pass it straight on to you like I am doing today. Trust, this will never be a blog where everything is C/O (unless Rebecca Taylor or Gucci start knocking on my door. You've been warned!). Ok, enough about me... let's take a look at what the fuss is about.

One of my most consistent style staples since, well, forever, has been aviators. Thank goodness they have been in style again the past few years because I took a lot of flack from the Mr. and many others for years over my 'Top Gun'-style glasses. So in the interests of protecting your eyes, and making you look freaking fabulous I settled on a pair of RayBan's.

The wonderful folks at SmartBuyGlasses.ca outfitted our winner with everything you see below 

Simply enter following the directions below and I will announce our winner on Monday February 17!


Good luck and thanks for being my BIFFs 
[best internet friends forever, duh!]

My favourite beach is Passe a Grille beach in Florida. An old school Florida beach with no high rises,dolphins swimming by, an icecream shop and local bands at the pavillion. Each night people gather to watch the sun set, and then someone rings the big brass bell to signify that the sun is down for another day.
