Hi my friends, it has been a while since I’ve posted on my blog..to be exact 20+ days! I have been so busy with work, family and life that I could not find the time to sit in front of my computer and write… I want to dive now into my subject for this new post and that is the many varieties of sunglasses that exists . There is a shape for everyone. Let’s explore the history of the sunnies we use to look stylish and protect our eyes. I for one never really questioned where they came from. All I cared about was that I Loved them!
If we go way back in time, sunglasses can be first traced to have been worn by Roman Emperor Nero who used polished light green emerald gems to see the gladiators compete. Somewhere between 1268 -1289 sunglasses were invented. A fact I find very interesting is that around the 12th century, sunglasses were used primarily by judges in the Courts of China who wished to hide their eyes as to not give their decisions away. From this point on the sunglasses continued to develop and in 1929, Sam Foster started selling sunglasses to wear as protection from the sun hence making them stylish to wear.
Now moving on to the present time…There are so many styles to choose from that it can be overwhelming! You want to try them all! You can pick from Retro Square, Aviator (one of my faves), Round, Cat Eye to name a few. Just choose based on your facial shape and go from there!
Below I share a few pics of myself and my family & friends wearing sunnies..

Wishing you all the best!
