Sunglasses are one of my favorite accessories. In addition to protecting my eyes from the New Mexico sun, I love finding the perfect pair of sunglasses to complete my looks. Unfortunately, I am also very proficient at losing my sunglasses, forgetting them in store dressing rooms and on restaurant tables.
I was recently in the market for a new pair of sunglasses, when Glasseshop.com reached out to me for this project. At first, I was skeptical as to whether or not they would have anything that would fit my needs.
But I was pleasantly surprised when I began browsing their website for a new pair of sunglasses. The website is easy to navigate and the variety of glasses frames available is great. In addition to sunglasses, Glasseshop.com offers eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses. The price of sunglasses is quite affordable, ranging from $12.95 to $55.95 excluding sale items. I also want to point out that the glasses are not name brand, and that the sunglasses are manufactured in China.
I selected the Naples Square sunglasses ($55.95), and a few days later, I received the sunglasses along with a glasses case and cleaning cloth.
I was nervous about the fit since I was not able to try on the sunglasses before picking them, but I had no problem with the fit or the size of the frame. I am super happy with the sunglasses and am glad that I picked a style that I probably would not normally select.

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Lewis N. Clark. All opinions are my own. As a first time mom and frequent traveler, preparing to go on my first trip as a mother was stressful and exciting. A few weeks ago I flew to Washington, DC for a couple of days to finish up my job. It was likely my final trip to DC for the foreseeable future.
The most stressful part of the trip was leaving my twins for the first time and also pumping for them for the duration of the trip. I also used the trip to test out a couple of products from Lewis N. Clark. This is the second project I have worked with Lewis N. Clark on. You can read about the first one here.
Since I knew I will not be heading back to DC any time soon, I took the opportunity to visit the National Mall for old time’s sake. When I was living in Arlington, VA and half marathon training, I would run from my apartment to the Mall many, many weekends during the winter for my long runs. It was truly something that I took for granted at the time and miss very much today.

Secura RFID-Blocking Anti-Theft Satchel – $89.99
I used the Secura RFID-Blocking Anti-Theft Satchel as my main handbag during this trip. It was super helpful for use as my “personal item” on the plane but also as a handbag once I reached DC. I packed a second handbag that I did not wind up using because this bag was so much more roomy and functional.
The main features of the Secura satchel are its special RFID-blocking material that blocks unwanted scans of your personal information by identify thieves and its anti-theft protection.
The anti-slash strap protects your bag from cutting and slashing by would-be pickpockets. The hardware can be used to lock the bag to stationary objects and to lock the bag’s main compartment as well as two outside pockets, a further deterrent for pickpockets.
Additional features include an adjustable strap, water-resistant coating and lots of pockets to keep all of your things organized.
I found the bag to be the perfect size to use during my trip, and I loved that I was able to keep things separated and organized in the numerous pockets. The security features also gave me peace of mind when out and about. The only complaint that I have about the Secura satchel is that it lacks a certain air of style. Even my husband commented that this is not a bag that I would normally carry due to its lack of style.
Plaid Jewelry Roll – $19.99
I try to accessorize as much as is appropriate on my trips and have been in the habit of dumping all of my jewelry into a zippered pouch and calling it a day. Once I reach my destination, I often find my necklaces all tangled up and have a hard time finding matching earrings.
I thought the plaid jewelry roll from Lewis N. Clark would make organizing my travel jewelry easier. My favorite features of the jewelry roll are the separate zip pockets for different pieces of jewelry. Although I did not use them for this trip because I actually didn’t wind up taking a ton of jewelry with me, the roll also has an earring strip that is perfect for studs and a ring holder.
Both products were great for my first trip as a new mom, and I have a feeling they will be in heavy rotation on future trips, if I ever get to leave the house again!
