Today, Tuesday, June 27th is National Sunglasses Day, a holiday that went viral last year and is the perfect day to show off your sunglasses, not to mention your other new summer essentials! This is The Vision Council’s fourth annual National Sunglasses Day, and to celebrate I’m sharing with you my shades from Kingsley Rowe. Summer is here and even though we waited close to 6 chilly-to-frigid months for it, it’s here to stay!

What most people tend to forget is the importance of sunglasses, and not because they tend to make you look good, hide your bags under your eyes or the fact you had a good time the night before, but their sole purpose is actually to protect your eyes from UV.

What is UV you ask?

The sun emits three kinds of radiation: UVA, UVB and UVC. While UVC is absorbed by the Earth’s atmosphere, UVB radiation is only partially blocked and can burn the skin and eyes. UVA rays are not filtered and cause the most damage to vision health, according to the World Health Organization. Direct sunlight is not the only source of danger from UVA and UVB radiation: both types of rays reflect off surfaces such as water, snow, sand, concrete and even buildings, which can increase exposure levels.

Protect your eyes with a pair of UV-protective shades and avoid: trouble seeing, sunburn of the eye, irritation and cancer , all of which are symptoms American adults report experiencing after prolonged exposure to the sun’s UV rays, according to a survey by The Vision Council.

Join me and get involved by grabbing your favorite pair and posting a selfie on your social media channels with the tags #SunglassSelfie and #NationalSunglassesDay!

Celebrating 10 years with Orlebar Brown #OBsAroundTheWorld

Orange Jack Swim Trunks, Yellow Setter Swim Trunks, Sammy Toweling Shirt –Orlebar Brown

This year marks the 10 year anniversary for the British swimwear brand, Orlebar Brown. To celebrate the new summer collection, OB Invited me to try out the new threads in sunny Bermuda. This was my second time visiting the small-yet-beatufiul island.

My first time I was exposed to Orlebar Brown was about 4 years ago in Project Las Vegas where I had the chance to customize a bespoke pair which I own till today! And, I’m not just saying this, but as a skinny guy that likes clothing fitted, I’ve never found a pair of swim trunks that fit me as well as OB.

The new collection features a new style called The “Jack,” a sporty rendition of the classic Bull Dog, see the orange trunks above, which is made out of a sporty and super lightweight nylon.

Orlebar Brown is considered the Ferraris and Bentleys of Swimwear. Their sartorial approach to swimwear set them a part from the rest of the market.  They recently launched a collaboration with Beautiful Destinations and DJ Sam Feldt.

I recently visited Aruba for the first time ever (not my last, I can assure you that.) I called The Ritz-Carlton home for the weekend, made a few new pink friends and made the most epic memories one can ask for. Overall the resort is pretty casual, so no need for any blazers or dress shirts, you’re on vacation after all. If you’re looking for a luxury hotel with exceptional service, I mean the entire staff at the resort is super friendly, great bites and all the amenities one needs during their break, the Ritz-Carlton is the place to be!

9 Things to do While you’re In Aruba

  1. Get a Massage at the Ritz-Carlton. If you want a luxury spa experience, an opportunity to decompress and relax. Click here
  2. Dinner on The Beach. If ever dreamed about having dinner on the beach, like one of those picture-perfect scenes straight from any of those movies, you can do so at The Ritz-Carlton. Wine & dine with Solanio while enjoying each other’s company as the one of the most breathe-taking sunsets takes place. (View more here)
  3. Rent a beach or pool Cabana. During the day you have the option of renting a beach or pool cabana. I would suggest doing each once while you’re there so you can get the full experience. Both are pretty great, however if you want something more personal and private, I would suggest going with the beach cabanas.
  4. Make friends with the Flamingos. Sadly, they’re not on linkedin, but you’ll have to venture out to Renaissance Island to meet the 6 pink flamingos that live in Aruba. Many of my friends thought I was really good with photoshop after posting one of those photos with the flamingos, but I can assure they are 100% real.
  5. Paddle Boarding. The Ritz-Carlton offers a few water sports activities including Paddle Boarding. The water is pretty shallow so it makes it a little easier to climb on top of the board, but don’t be fooled, it is a bit harder than it looks.
  6. Eat/Drink at the Club Lounge. If you have access to this club, USE IT. The breakfast is better than the view, and the view is quite exceptional. If you’re ever looking for a quick bite or want a glass of something The Club Lounge at The RC is the place.
  7. Beach Please. Some of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen in my life–and the water? Crystal clear and more blue than the sky. If you’re looking to venture out of the hotel, try Eagle Beach (see above for a photo with a puppy photobombing my instagram.) 
  8. Sunset Cruise. with De Palm Tours. Cruise the sea and watch the sun set while sipping on rose or your favorite cocktail.
  9. Go big or Go Home- Play at the Casino (with the hopes of winning big). Now, I don’t endorse being a gambler, but play smart. The Ritz-Carlton casino has an assortment of casino games ranging from traditional table favorites to a wide variety of slot machines.
