Hiya everyone ♡
Let me start by saying I sincerely apologise for the radio silence on the blog the last two weeks. I am doing a course which I had an assignment due for and I totally forgot what it was like to do an assignment :/ I have been out of varsity for 8 years after all! Besides that and some extreme personal stress that I am going through I really put the blog on the back-burner, BUT I have so many blog ideas so I am going to try to blog as much as possible!
Let’s get to the fun stuff!
I posted about my love for Birlin sunglasses in a post about 5 months ago, it was a monthly favourites post that you can check out here. I have also posted numerous times on Twitter and Instagram about the different styles they have available at YDE – I even asked for advice on which ones to get which you guys helped me with! Here are a few of the pics –
It just so happens that Birlin saw my blog post and asked if I want to work with them on a giveaway – um yar!
Let’s start off by showing you my 6 pairs of Birlin sunnies that I have. The below are mostly from the latest collection but the one I showed in my May Favourites (the matte blush pair) is from the collection before. I also had a beautiful pair of rose gold aviators – but I lost them!
If you watched my Snapchat or Instagram story then you would know, but they disappeared at a wedding. I wore them during the ceremony but took them off when it got dark (I’m not that guy…) at the reception. When the venue cleared the tables at the end of the night they magically vanished. I was devastated.
Anywhoooo, here is my collection – I love every one of them ♡
Top left – round mirrored lens with light pink frame and arms
Top right – slight rose tinted lens with light pink print frame and arms – the giveaway sunnies!
Middle left – mirrored lens with camel acetate frames (very trendy, my current fave pair)
Middle right – mirrored lens with matte blush frame
Bottom left – classic light brown aviators
Bottom right – fade lens with tortoise-shell frames and stone acetate arms with gold detail (my fave driving sunnies)
