Maui Jim: A Taste of Hawaii

It’s no secret that I have a deep connection to Hawaii; so much so that I travel to Maui and Kauai every winter. If I can’t be in Hawaii everyday (one can dream), then I at least want to feel as close to the islands as possible. That’s one of the many reasons why I love the sunglass brand, Maui Jim. The company started in Maui’s Lahaina area with the mission to create lenses that prevent harmful UV rays from hitting your eyes while also capturing the vibrant colors of Hawaii. They believe that it’s not about where you are; its about the magic that happens when you slip on a pair of Maui Jim’s and experience that the view is truly better behind their lenses – and they live up to their mission. With more than 125 styles of polarized glasses that protect against UVB and UVA rays, there is something for everyone to choose from with this fashion-forward brand.I was immediately drawn to the colorful Wakea model.

The Piece That Keeps On Giving

Every man should own at least one cardigan. They can make an outfit look new, simply by throwing it over any woven, flannel or v-neck in your wardrobe. Cardigans are practical items to own because they are pieces that can be worn three out of four seasons: fall, winter and spring. Whether you are going for a more professional look, pairing it with a crisp button-down, tie and slacks for a corporate-feel, or a more casual look, throwing it over a flannel or tee, this piece can be used to achieve any style.This is one item where the fit makes a drastic difference. If you buy a cardigan too large, it can make you appear heavier than you are, creating excess fabric around your waistline. If you buy a cardigan that is too tight, you can appear like your circulation is being cut off and the layers underneath your sweater will wrinkle. I aways say there is a fine line between fitted and too small, and you want to be sure to remain in the …

Spotlight on Sunglasses

Sunglasses are an accessory you can never have enough of, which isn’t always ideal for my wallet (I’m mildly addicted to them). After all, you need different styles of eyewear for different occasions!  Diff is a very cool company. With sunglasses that retail for $40, Diff produces high-quality frames that are current with whats trending in the fashion industry. Many Diff sunglasses are made with acetate frames, one of the highest quality plastic materials used by top designers. Love that this brand uses these frames at such a compelling price point!  Between polarized and reflective mirror lenses, tortoise shells frames, and color therapy lenses designed to help relax your mind, you can find whatever you are looking for at Diff. I also like to support a company that gives back and has a philanthropic core. For every pair of glasses that Diff sells, they will donate one pair of reading glasses to “Eyes on Africa” and another pair of sunglasses to “Toys for Tots.” I look forward to seeing how this company will continue to …
