Sunglasses 101

May 25, 2014

Sunglasses don't just protect your eyes from the sun's harmful rays or sun-glare when you're out on the fields. They're also a fabulous fashion accessory! Ever wonder why some sunglasses look great on some people but not on others? It's all about your face shape. Check out this simple guide to finding the right pair for your shape, then head to the store with a buddy to find your next great look!

Oval

If you have an oval-shaped face, just about any style looks great. So experiment with frames that catch your eye. Rectangular frames balance out your face's vertical so they round out your face, while upswept styles, like cat eye and butterfly, compliment high cheekbones.

Square

If you have a broad forehead and jawline, you have a square-shaped face. Avoid frames that have strong angles and look for curvier frames, like round or oval, instead. Cat eye, butterfly or half-rim glasses add interest and shape.

Round

Add angles to your look with geometric frames. Rectangular frames give your look a nice edge and make your face look longer and thinner.

Heart-shaped

If your face is widest at the temples and narrows at the chin, you have a heart-shaped face, just like [kwlink 1614]Julia Roberts[/kwlink]. Since the most prominent area of your face is the eye area, you want to direct attention downward with more subtle, light-colored frames with thin temples. Stay away from chunkier frames like rectangles or aviators.

 I am your friend and I know you from a long time , Nisha. You are a nice girl. Just remember​ one thing that there is beauty in imperfection​.  Don't feel afraid to think or express anything you feel just because you think it's dumb . It may be dumb for some but it also may be cool for some. We all are different in our own way and that's what makes us feel unique. Just be yourself even if you think it's dumb because it will never make you regret and always get you the right ones in your life :):):):):)

I don't know where else to post this, but note that this isn't related to my friends. In a small way it is but it isn't.. anyway, my problem is I've read a lot and observed people around me. I've realised the kind of mistakes they make and have learnt how to avoid some of them. I've learnt from my childhood stupidity and sillyness too, and from the past two years. But I did something that many others must have done. Problem is I feel dumb now. Not because I think myself to be superior to others but because, it's simple for them to get over it but for me it's hard. I don't want to mention what I did but I had really strong feelings and one slight word can ruin my mood in that case. I've realised my problem is that I want to be perfect and to not make mistakes. But I know that mistakes help us learn. And I just need to relax but don't know how to. I want to, unlike people who give up and submit to the darkness - no offsense. But I really, really want to. It's been tearing me apart. Please, if anyone can help me, please please help.

I'm in 8th grade and I ride the bus with a friend of mine. He's in 6th grade. Recently, I've had all of these weird feelings and I think I like him. He's so young but he already has a girlfriend. I couldn't get in the way of that. PLUS, everyone would make fun of me. I can't tell anyone this because I know I'll be judged.  What do I do?  :rain  :mad
