Sunglasses in Harmattan—-Yaay/Naay

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

Its a been a minute since i dropped a blog post!!!!

I got series of messages from you guys of wanting more articles. I am really sorry for the long wait. I’m glad the fan base is growing. I really didn’t expect so much messages but it made me  understand how important and useful what i post regularly is and the connection we have made.

I AM GRATEFUL

I recently visited Abuja, and Harmattan there is no joke. I stay in Lagos and i can say there is no Harmattan here.

Harmattan in Abuja is crazyyyyyyyy!!!!! Everything is covered in dust. The air you breathe is dusty, your clothes is dusty in matter of minutes, it is too cold in the morning and too hot in the afternoon. I wore a pair of new converse for a meeting, by the end of the day, my shoe was dusty. It was crazy.

The good thing about the Harmattan in Abuja is the dryness of wind blowing, which means, you don’t get to sweat. Everywhere is hot but you do not get to sweat!!!!

But despite all these harmattan fuzz, my glasses came in handy and useful which brings about my blog post for today……..

SUNGLASSES IN HARMATTAN…..YAAY/NAAY

Harmattan in Nigeria is a very dry, dusty period which is on the high side in the northern and eastern parts. It usually comes from the Sahara dessert in the West African Coast and could last from November/December to February.

Now you know how crazy harmattan can be. Personally, I am not a fan of this season. I used to hate every single aspect of it when i was in school. Being back to Lagos feels so good as harmattan is not one of our problems.

As dry and dusty Abuja was for me, my glasses came useful, as it protected my eyes from dust, getting itchy and drying up.

Now you see why it is a yaaay for me and it has to be a yaay for you. You don’t want your eyelashes getting dusty neither do you want your eye getting itchy.

Here are few tips to prevent your eye during this harmattan season….

  1. Always wear Sunglasses when going out.

Stan Lee, The man whose Signature is Sunglasses,Our favorite Marvel legend passes on……..A Tribute!!!!

It is hard, they say, to forget someone who gave you so much to remember.

This quote seem so clear right now to me because the truth is …………………can we ever forget our Stan Lee???????

We all get anxious and excited when we hear “Marvel is releasing a new movie”, “Black Panther is coming out next month” or we hear “Iron man is back to the theaters”…etc…

Can we really forget the man behind this creations?????

Thomas Bailey Aldrich also said what is lovely never dies, but passes into other loveliness.

This is true because Stan lee will never die in our hearts and memories.

Who was Stan Lee?

Popularly known as Stan Lee, his real name is Stanley Martin Lieber. Stan Lee was our American comic book writer, editor and publisher. Born December 28, 1922. Died November 12, 2018. He was popularly known for creating most of the fictional characters we grew up watching on television.

Some the characters which he created includes :

  • Spider man
  • Daredevil
  • X-men
  • Iron man
  • Thor
  • The hulk
  • Black Panther
  • Ant-man
  • Fantastic Four
  • Doctor Strange
  • Hawk eye
  • Black Widow
  • Nick Fury
  • Captain Marvel
  • Avengers
  • Green Goblin
  • Magneto e.t.c

Maybe we would forget so many heroes, but we will always remember the man who created the heroes.

Asides his creations, Stan lee was popular for his sunglasses. He was always on sunglasses, different kinds at that, and that is a complete mood on its own.

I don’t think I have ever seen a picture of Stan lee without Sunglasses. For each time he has appeared on screen, he has worn his sunglasses regardless of the role and that’s quite cool.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

He is like our grandpa goals…old and trendy.

Stan Lee once said in an interview :

“I don’t know what it is. I’ve always worn sunglasses,” he replied. “They’re like my mask, I guess. It was probably just some silly affectation. When I was very young and just starting off as a writer, I always lit a pipe and held it in my teeth as I wrote. I hated smoking a pipe, but I felt it made me look older and like I writer. I was 18. Sunglasses are better for your health.”

We will definitely miss that old dude with his sunglasses and seeing Stan Lee on the screen either as that pizza guy or the random guy just walking by and his so many roles he has acted.

He didn’t have cloaks, didn’t have powers; but he inspired us to do better, taught us that imagination has no limit, that no matter who you are, you can achieve your goals. He helped us to live with our imaginations and his and will always be the best superhero of all time.

While we would miss seeing the legend in his sunglasses, it seems we still get the chance to see him soon… According to Joe russo(avengers director). Lee’s cameos were filmed consecutively with shots already filmed for releases in 2019😁😀…..

You will be severely missed Stan….Thank you for sharing your creativity with the world.

Drop a comment for Stan Lee in the comment section and let me know which of his creations is your favorite and why it is your favorite.

Halloween Shady

Hello Friends!!!

It’s been a minute. I couldn’t wait to write my next post so as to get in touch with you guys. You guys give me reasons to write more.

THANK YOU!!

By the way, it’s Halloween season. HAPPY HALLOWEEN. To my fellow Nigerians, it is not a festival we usually celebrate but a few people usually look forward to it and they try to celebrate.

Today’s blogpost would be about Shades and Halloween.

It means I would be showcasing some of the very nice halloween looks I found on the internet with shades. That sounds cool right???

I mean thinking of Halloween looks, people go way up and they use masks and a lot of things but not glasses. I also found out while doing research that a lot of people who uses eye glasses due to bad eye sight find it very hard to rock their glasses with their halloween creation.

So, here is my list of favorite halloween pictures with glasses……This lady went all classy and bluey (if that’s a word). I love the hair, the makeup and most importantly the shades….Gorgeous is the word!How Cool is this? This look is very simple and classy. I love her creativity and her style.What is your definition of halloween again? I love this lady and her glasses. The Shades are life. If halloween is a guy, I’m sure he would marry her.This halloween picture is out of the world for me. I don’t know whoever came up with the idea but it is super great. I like the whole creativity with the hair, hat and shades.Ok…This is definitely scary, but hey, remember it’s halloween, it’s trick or treat. I must really commend the make up artist. The level of creativity is top notch. I like the fact it gives this nerdy zombie look.This is definitely a simple look. If you are in for no stress and you definitely want to slay halloween with your shades, then this is the perfect idea.The Queen herself never ceases to amaze us. Every year, she does something astonishing. I like this Black Barbie look and the shades are to die for.This picture is like the modernized little red riding hood with a spice of swag. I love it.

Here comes the end of my favorite looks. What do you think of them. Let me know your opinions in the comments section.

Thanks🙏🏽.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

What do you know about Sunglasses?

Hello Handsome , Hello Beautiful!!!!

Today is such a beautiful day, with sun shining beautifully and extending its rays, we can conclude it’s a perfect day for our “sunnies“.

Actually, everyday and any day is perfect for a pair of glasses.

I get to ask people often about what kind of glasses they are putting on and the conversation usually goes:

Me: Buddy, what kind of shades is this?

Buddy : RayBan

Me : Nope, I didn’t ask for the brand, I’m asking for the type.

This is usually my conversation with most people regarding Sunglasses and I have come to the notice that most people do not know the kind of glasses they are wearing rather they are more concerned about the brand they are putting on.

So basically, my blog post today will be about the different kinds of Sunglasses that exist on planet Earth.

Are you excited to learn more?

I am pleased to show you more….

Different types of Sunglasses

WAYFARER

Wayfarer  is one of the most worn glasses especially among men. Its like their favorite pair of glasses.

Wayfarer was originated by an American Optical designer “Raymond Stegeman” in 1952. He worked with the RayBan co-parent at that time.

They have distinctive trapezoidal frame with sturdy temple arms which gives it a more masculine look. Interestingly, the word ‘wayfarer’ means someone who travels by foot.

AVIATOR

Aviator as the name implies were initially designed for pilots by Bausch&Lomb to protect their eyes while flying.

They are known to have dark reflective lenses usually covering the whole eyeball area with thin metal frames to block the sun from all angles. This design, i can say is one of my favorite.

BROWLINE

Looking for some old school style with a touch of modern feel?  Browlines are the perfect glasses and are among the most perfect retro designs ever created.It got its name ‘browline‘ because it has the thick frame that runs across the brows. It is also characterized by its thin rims below the lenses.

RETRO SQUARE

Image result for retro square sunglasses

Just like the name sounds, it has the classic look it gives coupled with the fact that it comes with a square shape and thick boxy frame.

The retro style generally gives the timeless and classy look.

ROUND

You want to give that statement look? Round glasses are here to help. They are characterized by the round lenses. It can come in thick or thin frame, plastic or metal.

Put on this pair of glasses and walk that walk baby.

CAT EYE

Cat eye is one of my favorite. They give this chic and feminine look. They are characterized by their outer edges. They could come in metal, plastic or wooden.

Cat eye on men has definitely grown to become a fashion statement and it is usually gorgeous.

BUTTERFLY

Butterfly glasses are usually large in sizes and shapes. They usually cover the whole eye area. They somewhat look like a butterfly.

They give this cool bossy look.

BROW BAR

The brow bar glasses are stylish pieces for sunny days. They are known for the bar that run along your brows and they give this fun, stylish piece to your look.

KEYHOLE BRIDGE

Keyhole Bridge works well on any style. They were created for people with flat nose. Can you see that opening at the bridge? What does it look like ? A keyhole right?

You guessed right! This type of glasses were created for people with low nose bridge so the glasses can stay put.

They look great on everyone tho!!!

SPORT

Just like the name implies, sport glasses were made for adventure seekers. They sleek thin lenses and the frames are quite thick. They are usually made with polarized lenses and they fight glare.

That’s the end of today’s blog post. I do hope you gained something.

Thanks.
