This month we have been absolutely besotted with the up-and-coming Russian fashion mogul Miroslava Duma. Mira, as she is affectionately known by friends, has been at the forefront of the burgeoning fashion revolution that has swept across Russia. Her style is the perfect marriage between old Hollywood glamour and modern, tailored lines.

What could be more perfect than a new collection of super-fashionable sunglasses, especially when they’re such a steal! These beauties are available with prescription for our usual delightfully low price of $99 (and free shipping, of course), or without prescription for only $49! What’s more? For this week only, we are offering free shipping on our new non-Rx sunnies as a special introductory offer!

So, today I’ll be understanding. If you just want to skip the rest of this post and go shop BonLook’s brand new Traveler’s Collection, that’s okay. If not, keep reading and I will share some of our new styles and a little of the inspiration behind the designs!

Friday (almost) Freebie: DIY Glasses Cleaner

Today I am going to share an eyewear-themed DIY project that will save you some serious money. Buying commercial cleaners for your lenses can set you back a cool $10 or more a pop. A few bottles down the line, you’ll be wishing you could have saved that hard-earned cash of yours and picked up that second pair BonLook glasses—you know, that pair you had your eyes on last time you visited the site—instead of this darn bottled transience! Well, it’s time to rejoice, fellow eyewear-lovers. After a little experimentation, I think I was able to concoct the perfect imitation glasses cleaning spray! You can try it for yourself. The recipe below costs mere pennies and is (in my opinion) just as effective as any commercial cleaner I’ve tried.

Women We Love: Sunny Gu

image

When Veronica (our graphic designer) discovered Sunny Gu’s absolutely stunning illustrations on Pinterest, she spread the word and showed them to me. I instantly fell in love with her artwork and then had to share it with Melanie (co-founder of BonLook). Melanie was equally enamored by Sunny’s unique style and monumental talent and shared her website with Sophie (our other co-founder and Chief Designer). I think this is just what happens when you encounter her work. Her obvious talent is so striking and her illustrations are so beautiful that you just feel the need to share it with anyone that you think may appreciate it.

Sunny Gu has recently been featured in Dolce & Gabbana’s Swide Magazine and has done commissioned illustrations for some of the major names in the fashion industry. It is for this reason that we are thrilled that Sunny Gu agreed to be featured on our blog as one of the “Women We Love”! Although I would be happy to spill volumes of praise and share my thoughts on her supremely skillful art, Sunny’s take on things is quite a bit more interesting than mine! As such, here is my interview with her:

Father’s Day Gift Guide

image

With Father’s Day just around the corner, we thought it’d be fun to throw together a quick gift guide that should both appeal to the sundry sensibilities of all the Dads out there and cater to a wide range of budgets.

The guide is rather minimalistic, but I think there’s truly something here for lots of different types of Dads. The concept: 4 classic kinds of Father’s Day gifts (a beer gift, cufflinks, a handy gadget, and a watch) pitched at two different price points (Budget and Big Bucks).

Sweet Indulgences: Spa Day for Under $100

image

The whole concept of sweet indulgences that don’t break the bank is the subject of this blog post. After a long, hard week of trying on sunglasses, blogging, and Intagramming/Tweeting/Facebooking (ahem, yeah, I know my job is awesome) I love to pamper myself with an afternoon of relaxation. If you can afford to have a weekly spa day, then kudos to you lucky lady! This post is for the rest of us who love to have a lavish afternoon but don’t want to shell out too much. I’ll be sharing my favourite at-home pamper session where everything comes to less than $100 (hey, just like your future new prescription sunnies!)
