I had one of the coolest moments in my life visiting the Sahara desert in Tunisia. Probably the most amazing place on earth, mind blowing.
I spent an afternoon in the desert, riding camels and playing around in the sand. I don’t even know how to explain the feeling. It’s a very incredible feeling watching the infinitive view of desert. Sand, sand and more sand. Very calming and beautiful.
Me, Babba Canales, riding camels with my vintage Marie Claire sunnies.
Amigos, I’ve been in sunny Tunisia the past week enjoying an amazing vacation! Riding camels in the Sahara desert, going on jeep safari, visiting berber people, Star Wars land, spending hours by the pool and simply wearing tons of sunglasses.
I will share my sunny moments of the week here soon. While waiting please enjoy this very lol gif of me wearing a selection of the sunglasses I brought to Tunisia. Stay tuned!

Jasmin and Barbara wearing RVS by V Palladium
We’re completely in love with RVS by V, Turkish eyewear brand offering handmade eyewear. We’ve been reading about them a lot but not until very recently we finally got the chance to touch them and try them on for real. They are so cool, definitely one of the hottest brands out there.
When RVS by V say they’re handmade, they really mean handmade. They don’t even have any catalogues showing any collections, because they custom made every collections! Here we’re wearing two custom made Palladium, and we LOVE them!
Matte pink/Blue mirror lens and Matte blue/Orange mirror lens

Barbara in custom made RVS by V
The frames come in a hard box, together with a soft handmade eyewear sleeve.
Feather light thin and light yet a lot of attitude thanks to the mirror lenses.
MYKITA showed such a great collection at the SILMO fair in Paris this October!
Cool new colors such as matte red, green and cobalt blue, accent colors such as neon pink and violet combined with large round shapes is a hit!

I really love the shape and thickness of this frame!
Super ultra thin and light – yet durable!
It’s fun to have a splash of a bold color and it works really well when it’s this thin!
A new acetate color, here you can really see the transparent parts which I love about it!
Classic double brigde.
Amazing cobalt blue color! I want to see these in clear lenses!
Lovely matte pinkish violet.

Jasmin, Garrett and Elena
Wow! What a weekend! Me and Jasmin have been hanging out with these amazing people the whole weekend, showing them the very best of Stockholm. Garrett and Elena from Garrett Leight California Optics and Graz from Graz Studios are here in Stockholm to celebrate Bågar & Glas 30’s anniversary with trunk shows and anniversary party.
Pictures from the trunk shows will come up tomorrow. If in Stockholm, don’t miss out visiting Bågar & Glas tomorrow or Tuesday to meet Graz himself and see the limited edition sunglasses he has made specially for Bågar & Glas. Looking forward!
A sneak peak of the anniversary sunglasses:
Having a good time at Östermalmstorg in Stockholm, wearing one of my favorite glasses “Phoebe” in gold/pink from MYKITA.
I never thought I would wear a pink frame as an every-day-thing, but the nuance of the pink is so light and thin which makes it very wearable to any outfit.
Me and Jasmin on a sunday walk! I’m wearing MYKITA “Phoebe” and Jasmin is wearing the MYKITA for Bonocle sunglasses.
Buy the limited edition sunglasses on our Online Store, only 7 pieces left!

Cheers from La Champangeria in Barcelona!
I’m wearing my newest prescription glasses from MYKITA Decades “Phoebe”
One of my favorite spots in Barcelona is definitely La Champangeria in Ciutat Vella. Probably the most authentic bar in Barcelona, where you drink cava and eat tapas all day for incredible nice prices. You can also buy bottles of cava and delicates form their small shop in the back of the bar.

I’m very much enjoying my last days in sunny Berlin. On the picture I’m wearing my favorite prescription frame “Amber” from the MYKITA Decades collection. It’s the most comfortable frame I’ve ever had – light weight yet firm, which means it never slides down my nose.
Today I’m moving back to Stockholm… Stay tuned!
