guest post:5 Stylish Ways To Wear Your Sunglasses!

Even though we all know sunglasses are mainly meant for protection, we can’t help but love them for their fashionable side as well. They look so cool in the hundreds of different styles out there, it’s getting harder and harder to decide which one to choose and how to wear them. When in need, we always turn to street style blogs for inspiration - and so we found some fresh ways of wearing sunglasses this summer.

this is a guest post by Daria P., a freelance writer/social media enthusiast, living in Romania. She loves all things cute: cats, fit-and-flare dresses, bikes, novelty prints, foxes, breakfast food, travels, Vespas etc! She is a contributor for and

1. With a headscarf. A reinvention of a classic. With a scarf wrapped around your head and your favorite shades on, you’re not only fully protected against the sun rays, but you also have that je ne sais quoi of Old Hollywood stars. Image from: Garance Dore

2. With bright lipstick. What’s your bold color of choice? Pink, orange, burgundy? Whichever you like, it’s a perfect fit for your sunglasses. Accent your lips and opt for more natural eye makeup, which you can hide under your cool frames. Image from: Citizen Couture

3. With a bun. Both the bun and the sunglasses are the epitomes of summer. So why not combine them? The back of your neck will be free to breathe, while you also get to show off your sunglasses temples. Image from: Forever Amber

4. With embellishments. This is probably the biggest trend eyewear has seen lately. Sunglasses are no longer plain, they come with glitter, with rhinestones and even with tiny animals! The good news is that they’re easy to DIY, using only your sunglasses and your imagination. Image from: Front Row

5. With all black. It’s not uncommon to wear black in summer, especially if you want something more formal. The sunglasses will make you look even more mysterious - or you can use bright ones for a pop of color. Image from: Posh 24

monthly tunes june & the blogloving switch

I selected 10 fresh new tunes for this month. And I love them all. I can get a little annoyed when I don't have new music every once in a while. And that time has come so this month half of the playlist are songs I don't really know, but sound great to me.
Talking about new things, as you probably already know Google reader is going to stop in two weeks. So in the future you can follow submarines and sewingmachines at bloglovin.

though it isn't as warm as it was when I took these photos, it is still summer like with all little flowers and sunbeams. And I really like summer. Wonderful gracious summer. My life has been so so busy lately, I have had an exam week and Wednesday the re-exams will start. but after that its over, it will be all over, and the the glorious summer vacation will come like a messiah into my life and set me free from all the obligations. I am so longing for that time.

sometimes the blues is just a passing bird

"Oh sometimes the blues is just a passing bird
And why can't that always be
Tossing aside from your birches crown
Just enough dark to see
How you're the light over me"
this is the refrain of the song "the dreamer" by the tallest man on earth. I love the tallest man on earth, his lyrics are great, his voice is rough, and his guitar sounds great. yeah he is one of my faforites. If you don't know him, give it a try. Don't be scared by his a little odd voice, once you got used to it a little, his music is beautiful.

double exposures

I love double exposure photos. I'd really love to try this with film once, but for now digital editing is good enough. These photos are from a little photo shoot with Tim, and the overlays from several different occations, the first overlay is a scanned dia from my grand-aunt, the second is from a trip with Tim last summer, the third is just a little flower in the grass, the forth is from my trip with Tim to Brussels, and the fifth is our wood storage in the garden.
I had been experimenting with buildings as overlay this afternoon. And I made them all black and white. I have made some before, but those where in color and had several overlays, instant of one. If you like this, take a look at the tutorial I wrote about double exposure (for picmonkey). It is not that hard and it has great results.
