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!

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.
