For lovers of handmade accessories, check out Wishgiving for its classy, stylish artisan gemstone jewelries.   

All items are uniquely handmade in limited edition and a great deal of attention is paid to the design and craftsmanship.  Besides the design, I also like their emphasis on using gemstone to balance spiritual and physical well-being, giving the wearer a sense of overall harmony with their inner self.

Even if you’re not a celebrity chased by the paparazzi, you can still put on these face-swallowing sunglasses for great style and sun protection. 

Obviously, the larger the frame, the more coverage you get.  Always choose shades that are labeled as blocking 99-100% of UV rays. Some manufacturers’ labels say “UV-400.” This is the same thing as 100% UV absorption.  In addition, wraparounds offer added protection because they wrap around the temples to prevent the sun’s rays from entering from the sides.
