You know that I love music, to sing karaoke and hit the dance floor.
Lucky for me, I live in Las Vegas where there is a steady stream of entertainment possibilities. Last night I went out with my Lookie Lous Sunband sunglasses in blue wanting to test drive them in a nightclub environment.
No, he’s not drunk, he’s awesome…read the hat!
The vivid colors of the sunglasses caught the attention of several people in the club as well as one well oiled guy in the casino.
He thought I should give him my beautiful blue and totally awesome sunglasses…just because he wanted them.
Oh, alcohol logic!
But like I said this is Las Vegas and this kind of thinking just goes with the territory. I said, “No go Joe, these stunning and rare sunglasses are mine, mitts off”.
The ‘would be’ absconding scoundrel feigned understanding and reluctantly gave them back to me.
Thus we parted ways: me keeping my rare blue Lookie Lous,
him keeping his awesomeness in a blonde mullet-cap.
I doubt that tomorrow he’ll remember me or the eyeglasses and he’ll probably have a happy hangover (not the movie 1, 2 or 3).
So party no more this night my friend, with my Lookie Lous Sunband sunglasses or without them!
When you get home, kiss the little ones, hug your better half and pet the dog. Remember to be thankful and grateful for all that is positive and good in your life, just like I do every day for Lookie Lous Readerband reading glasses and Sunband sunreading glasses and Sunband sunglasses.
Oof! That’s a mouthful.
Peace and be well,
We are becoming pasteurized and homogenized at lightening speed. Before the internet we had PRIVACY. Now our every thought, image and action is You Tubed Twittered and FB’s to the point we could be running naked down 5th Avenue at noon and we would be less exposed to the world.
And vulnerable…..job, school, family, friends; nothing is sacred and no one is spared. In fact I think the distance and anonymity of the whole platform removes us just one step further away from real human interaction and just far enough to allow some of us to vent our unhappiness and frustrations pretty randomly and with total disregard to others. People are lashing out in ways we never would dare to a person in flesh in blood…except maybe on Jerry Springer or unless your packing a gun in an elementary school (or post office or court house…but that’s a different discussion).
And true not everybody likes your successes. They can’t have what you have (money, hot boyfriend, skinny butt, etc…) so they want you to have what they do…(stress, no BF hot or otherwise and a food addiction causing obesity…). They are burning up with envy and now there is an anonymous and impersonal way to let you know just how they feel. Trolls. People are frustrated with the drivel of their lives but instead of changing themselves, they blast anyone who dares live otherwise. Status quo is so familiar; it’s easier to stay the same and tear others down instead. Fear of change is great.
Soon we will all be vanilla flavored. Except for the man who had sex with a horse and died from it. Can you believe that story was the blog entry on Word Press that had the most activity. Ever? Is this is what people are curious about as long as they have anonymity?
We filter ourselves on social media to please or provoke, to hide this aspect of ourselves from some, show more than we normally would to others…have ‘friends’ we don’t even know and unfriend ex-lovers and current girls friends for faux pas both real and imagined. We rant about subjects we normally would care nothing about, embody causes we normally wouldn’t notice and expose ourselves way too much on all fronts (google yourself lately?). End result that I see more and more is that we are slowly becoming less and less of our real true selves.
What to do? Who knows, these are just observations and random thoughts.
That is how this blog rolls…..And so I grab my Lookie Lous reading glasses hairband and a good book and I disconnect from the connection online. I make the effort to call and talk or see someone in person. There is nothing like he human connection.

Can’t read restaurant menus? Maybe you need reading glasses. Yes, it happens to the best of us.
In tales of vanity, reading glasses make you look 100yrs. old, so you hide them but are forever doomed to order the daily special!
It’s another beautiful day in Paradise, Las Vegas. I am an empty nester.
I mean the nest is empty, really. The husband is gone and even the dog died, RIP faithful friend.
I am living alone for the first time in ages, a newly single woman after many years lived as a married one. I am finding that life is sometimes weird in new ways.
Case in point: the whole dating scene. Here in Vegas it’s interesting because the city attracts so many transients. I go to meet ups that I organize through an online travel community, attend local business networking events, peruse dating websites and belt out a tune or two at the local karaoke bar. My social circle includes lots of interesting people from various backgrounds. I try to be as much of my true self around others as possible.
To ‘be’ your ‘self’ you must first ‘know’ your ‘self’, right? Well I think I’ve figured out a few things about my’self’ and one of them is that I HATE to be seen in public in reading glasses! (Too ‘self’ conscious!) And I hate, when on dates, to have to pull them out. But I’m all but blind to read anything without them, so what to do?
Well the most fun thing I’ve done recently was something I really never thought could even make me smile.
About the time I started needing to wear reading glasses, Lookie Lous reading glasses hairband was invented by Kelly Coty of Nashville and I started wearing them. Thank goodness I could toss out my old reading glasses and still see the fine print. All while looking sexy at the same time. Bring on the dinner dates!
Before I discovered Lookies, I used to struggle and squint or get young children to read for me. If I was going out to eat, I’d call the restaurant ahead of time to know the menu so I wouldn’t have to try to read it once I got there. Now, I proudly wear my Lookie Lous readers. They are so unique everybody wants to know where to buy them. What a cool uni-sexy ‘readerband’ alternative to traditional reading glasses.
So even if the weirdness of dating remains at least the challenge of old lady reading glasses is resolved, so it’s off I go.
Now throw away your reading glasses, get some Lookie Lous and go get yourself a date.
Have a beautiful day,
from Paradise, Las Vegas
