Thanks for giving up your time to read our first blog. We hope to blog frequently about various things that we hope can help you in your life. Sounds pretentious right? We aren’t experts on life coaching or anything like that so don’t take us too seriously. But stick with us, watch us get better!
So, we thought a good thing to blog about first was motivation because, like the start of our blog, it is the seed of greatness. Actually forget the generic lines, you need to be motivated in your life, it’s that simple. What is motivation? No-one really knows exactly other than the human need to accomplish a task or goal. Everybody has woken up at some point in their life and felt that they can take on the world; wouldn’t your life be better if you could wake up like that every day? Sure it would. You could accomplish so much more. This blog isn’t about us motivating you, it’s about us encouraging you to motivate yourself. After all, in your life, there will always be you.

I don’t like the phrase “everything will work itself out” or “it’s all part of a wider plan.” You can’t leave your dreams to something like fate. I believe that great opportunities present themselves to individuals and it is up to them to be brave and to take the chance. Just imagine yourself when you’re old and you’re looking back on your life. Will you regret not starting that business or not trying harder? Will your life flashing before your eyes consist mainly of ‘ifs’? It’s in YOUR hands not to let that happen. Just take a deep breath, be brave (do it with your eyes shut if you have to) and take the step.

Ignore all the motivational quotes overlapping picturesque backgrounds (yes ok we used one for this) they don’t work. If you have social media you’ve seen enough and have any turned your life around? Usually you wake up the next day and forget actually seeing it despite how much you thought it would help. That’s because everyone is different. YOU’RE different and everyone responds in different ways. Impatient people don’t like the whole “look at the bigger picture” and patient people don’t like to hear “your time is now”. Everyone is different. Think we’ve said different enough now, but our point is… do your own thing. Set a goal for yourself where you want to be in five years, leave that to one side and make realistic 12 month goals that will help accomplish your five year plan. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Too generic? Yes,maybe, but the principle stands. The greatest things take time because they are forged on solid foundations.
Life is scary at times sure, but don’t hide away from it. Embrace it, breath it and feel it otherwise what’s the point? If you don’t try then you don’t have the right to complain. Don’t just focus on the goal though, you’re not a horse with blinkers. Look around you and appreciate the things that you have while you work towards the things you want.

Just fight, and keep moving forward.
Remember, it’s up to you how your story will end.

Why we use bamboo
Why we use bamboo

February 05, 2018

We’re proud of our sunglasses; their style, practicality and everything that they stand for. But a lot of people ask us, why bamboo? (No seriously they do, we’re not just looking for an excuse to blog.) Granted it’s slightly unusual to have sunglasses made from anything other than metal and plastic nowadays, and well that was the problem. 
The waste across the planet is agonising, we’re all finally becoming aware of that fact. Up to 15 billion trees are cut down every year.

Autumn Memories

November 16, 2017

People scream and throw themselves behind the sofa as they utter the words, it’s autumn. But it’s one of our favourite times of year (definitely in our top four seasons) and it should be yours too! We’re sure most people started autumn reminiscing back over their summer and glancing at the BBQ they should have cleaned out back in July (we’re pretty sure it's had time to cool). But you shouldn’t fret, summer will be back eventually. Just don’t wish the next 9 or so months away as though they’re the build up to the summer and only that alone.

96 Hours in Barcelona

September 22, 2017

Barcelona, the grandest of Mediterranean cities. To those viewing it from above, like the millions of tourists that descend upon the Catalan City each year as they fly above, it seems a terracotta chessboard intertwined with monuments and lavish squares that proudly exhibit the region’s history. Kind of sounds like we swallowed a travel guide doesn’t it? But go to Barcelona, it’s awesome, enit.
Today it’s more popular than ever. It seems we’re never 6ft away from someone that’s been to Barthelona and Instagrammed their tapas, #travel #mondays #livelaughlove.
