Thank goodness it’s Friday. Not only am I a little worn down and could use the R&R, it also mean we’re one week closer to vacation!
Vacation? Yes, have I not already mentioned it 4 billion times? David and I have a big vacation coming up and I’m so excited I’m contemplating making a countdown paper chain- aren’t those the best?
We are going sailing in British Virgin Islands and I can almost smell the salty breeze, taste the pina coladas and feel the sunshine on my face. Luckily I won’t have to worry about all that sunshine because my eyes will be protected by THE best sunglasses around. What might those be?
Maui Jims, of course! Are you familiar with these sun glasses? They are incredible. They have a PolarizedPlus2 lens technology meaning they not only block UV rays without glare, but they also make the colors you see more vibrant and crisp. Proof.
We’re not new Maui Jim fans around here. David has worn them for years. Their customer service is impeccable and even after David broke his pair (his fault), they fixed them for only $10. When you are talking about high quality shades, that is impressive.
The kind folks at Maui Jim (who sign their emails with Mahalo! which always has me picturing them on a deserted island somewhere…) were awesome enough to send me a pair of their Maui Jim Women’s Baby Beach sunglasses.
Aviators. I’m in love.
I have an oblong face and don’t feel like any glasses ever fit me right, but these do! They are light weight and eliminate all glare. I forget I’m even wearing them sometimes and have worn them into stores. They’re that comfy.
But it didn’t stop there. They offered to send David a pair, too! He already has an everyday pair to wear, so after he calmed himself from the excitement, he chose the perfect glasses for sailing, the Maui Jim Banyons.
He loves them because they wrap around his eyes and neither sunshine nor ocean spray will bother him while we’re sailing. I imagine they’d also be great for runners, bikers, skiers and any other outdoor sports.
Still… it didn’t stop there.
The awesome folks over at Maui Jim also offered to give one of YOU a new pair of Maui Jims! …Any. Pair. You. Want.
All you have to do is go browse Maui Jim’s amazing selection and comment with what pair you would want if you win!
Contest will run through Monday morning, 1/28/2013, at 7:00am and I’ll announce the winner in that morning’s post.
