Good morning darling friends!

The sun is shining and I am currently making my to do list for today! I’ve got a question for you! Ever notice the longer you spend staring at your computer at work answering emails, writing proposals, working on reports or scrolling through Instagram that your eyes feel heavy or tired? Do you ever get subtle headaches or fatigue and wonder why you feel so tired?! Let me guess, you probably thought you slept well last night. Well, it is proven that we as a culture spend more time looking at screens than ever before. I certainly love scrolling through my Instagram - haha! At twenty-nine years old though, feeling fatigued and my eyes being tired is not on my agenda. This year, one of my goals is to be better about monitoring my screen time and being healthier — like being more conscious of protecting my eyes!

If eye and/or mental fatigue and mild headaches sounds familiar, I have some good news for you! Pixel Eyewear offers fashionable, non-prescription glasses for both men and women that are designed to help reduce and protect from blue light. These eyeglasses help reduce fatigue and tiredness (strain) in your eyes allowing you to be more efficient and protect your eyes! These glasses are great to wear at work, while you’re on your phone, laying in bed scrolling through Instagram or even watching tv. I will note that I personally have prescription eye-glasses because of a lazy eye. Several times over the last few weeks, I have found myself in situations where I did not have my prescription glasses with me. Luckily, I did have my pair of Pixel Eyeglasses in my bag and they were a huge help, reducing my eye fatigue and keeping me focused and efficient!

As wedding & fashion photographer, a lot of screen time is inevitable, so if there is a way to help protect my eyes, you better believe I am going to take it! My eyes are incredibly vital for me to continue doing what I love to do! :)

I am excited — Pixel Eyewear and I decided it would be fun to host a giveaway! Here’s how to enter:

The perfect Vegan Leather Women's Camera Backpack | The Lyra by Kamrette | Personal

Are you a photographer on the hunt for a new, super cute, stylish, practical, functional and sturdy bag for your camera gear? Last Fall I was on that hunt. I own a Langly backpack, which I love, but I wanted something a little smaller. I also knew that I didn't want a shoulder bag. Shopping for a new camera bag is a tad overwhelming. There are so many options to choose from! 

My search was over as soon as I stumbled upon an Australian brand, Kamrette, on Instagram. It didn't take me long to fall in love with the design, style and colors of their bags, specifically the backpacks! After several weeks of shopping around and contemplating, I kept going back to this bag and decided it was worth taking the risk! I bought the Lyra backpack. You guys, I have been so incredibly happy with it! This vegan leather bag comes with so many customizable options for your gear and the most practical pockets. The straps are adjustable and the back pocket is specifically designed for your laptop. I have to admit, probably my favorite feature about this bag though is the strap at the bottom backside. It allows for you to slip the bag over your suitcase while you roll it! How awesome is that?! 

I've had this bag for just shy of a year now and I've been super impressed with how well it has held up! Also, it is so comfortable and it is the only bag that when I'm wearing it, I get more compliments about it than I can count! 

Depending on what specific gear you want to carry with you will obviously depend what will all fit. I am able to fit two cameras, three to four lenses, a flash, plus numerous accessories. Sometimes when traveling, I will only take one camera with me, two lenses, my Beats headphones, my laptop and charger etc. This specific bag comes in tan, black and a cute light tan canvas. I've linked Kamrette's website and my backpack
