The temperature is rising, days are getting longer and school is (finally) over. Our thoughts are "shore" turning toward summer vacation. I reached out to Anna Smirnova, founder of Eyezz.com, an online retailer of authentic designer eyewear from all the hottest name brands, for her expert recommendations on what shades you should be styling this summer and some helpful tips to protect your eyes from the sun.

"You may be tempted to break out your polyester and bell-bottoms when you sport these shades, recalling a vintage 70's look, with an iconic shape that is at the same time voluminous and enchanting."

2. Prada 0PR 52US

"Exceptional craftsmanship and style are the hallmarks of Prada frames and I love that these sunglasses are available with a mirror coating option for enhanced sun protection and gradient tinted lenses that start off at a darker color at the top of a lens and then gradually lighten towards the bottom. Great for fashion and enjoying sunny summer days."

3. Ray-Ban 0RB3026

"Timeless. The Ray-Ban Aviator Classic sunglasses were originally designed for U.S. aviators in 1937 and with a classic gold frame and a range of lens colors, they have easily become the most iconic sunglass models in the world. Whether you are shooting for a spot in the 'Top Gun' sequel or simply want to look like you belong with the jetset, these frames are definitely the way to go."

4. Gucci GG0113S

"I love this trendy iconic round shape, inspired by the Gucci runways and the ethos that 'L'Aveugle Par Amour' (Love Blinds). The acetate rim with engraved varnished sentence and iconic bee on the hing, is sure to generate some 'buzz' this summer."

5. Dior Offset 1

"Watching the sunset and sipping a Cosmo just got sexier with this line from the House of Dior. Crafted of black acetate and polished rose-goldtone metal, heads will turn when your friends see the multicolored acetate topline detailing that would make Carrie Bradshaw swoon."

Sunlight reflecting off the sea and sand greatly increases your exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation and your risk of developing eye problems, but sunglasses can actually help protect your eyes. When looking for new sunglasses choose lenses with a UVA/UVB rating of 100% to get the most protection from ultraviolet light.

Just because you choose dark-tinted sunglasses, doesn't mean you will have more UV protection. You can actually get the same level of UV protection with light-colored tints, such as green, amber, red, and gray as you can with very dark lenses.

Finally, you may want to consider large, wraparound-style frames, not only are they very much in style right now, they may provide more efficient UV protection because they cover the entire eye area. This is particularly important when hanging around or on the water because much of the UV comes from light reflected off the water's surface.

There you have it! Our rundown of five celebrity-envy sunglasses for summer and some bright ideas for protecting your eyes from the sun!

Trader Joe's has been my favorite grocery store since I knew it existed — from the small, community-like feel to the prepped frozen snacks I throw in the oven 10 minutes before having guests over, it's been a go-to for me for over a decade.

During the four years in college I didn't live near one, friends and I would make a semi-annual pilgrimage to the one nearest us hours away to pick up our favorite essentials, all on a college budget.

October — arguably the best month of the year — is finally here, which means we will be losing some of our Netflix favorites but gaining some new ones for the fall lineup. Here is a list of TV shows and movies we will be losing and gaining on Netflix during October.

It's important to recognize that we all go through different experiences based on the reproductive systems we're born with. Yes, the penis and vagina do different things. I want to understand what it's like to walk around with a pair of balls and I'd hope others are curious about what it's like to bleed once a month, endure infertility issues, and just have a uterus and identify as a woman.

I'm not going to lie — I was pleasantly surprised by the answers I received when I asked 12 men about some basic reproductive health. Here's what they had to say.

PCOS Is The Worst, But The Women Battling It Every Day Are Extraordinary

Women are learning new ways to assist hormonal health every single day.

Everyone knows someone who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Maybe you don't know that you know, but with 10% of women in the United States having the autoimmune disease, it's more common than you'd think. The hormonal hell that many of these women go through is not only painful, but it's exhausting, with too few answers thanks to a lack of research and consistency.

This lack of research makes the disease rather "trial and error" for many women, as everyone's case is different and requires them to figure things out based on experimentation. Thankfully, the women of the world are good at fixing problems. While PCOS has caused me a lot of hurt, I've been blown away by the women I've met who continue to tackle this battle head-on, one day at a time.

OK, listen, I also think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool. I had an Elizabeth Warren sign in my dorm room for a while. I'm currently interning for a congressional candidate. I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.

As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.
