One of my favorite things about summer is getting to wear fun sunglasses. And lots of them! Once upon a time I stuck to a single pair: black plastic 1950s-style cat's eyes accented with rhinestones. I loved them. And then I lost them. Ever since, I've been drowning my sorrows in a series of distracting and shiny replacements.

Oh I absolutely love heart sunglasses, wish they suited me! And the watermelon case is sooo cute! :)

I know; aren't they fun? I'm not sure that they suit me either, but I wear them anyway :)

I love the watermelon too! Sometimes I carry it as a tiny clutch.

I do that, I have so many cosmetic purses/cases etc and some I use for my sunnies.

I have Australian Cancer Council sunglasses as well as a few fun ones.

As for the watermelon, I have a square strawberry!

That's funny. And here I thought I was the only person paranoid enough about scratching her sunglasses to store them in protective cases :)

I love the sound of that square strawberry!

If you still have i would love to buy the watermelon make up bag from you!! Let me know if we can set something safe up because ive been lookin for it -Alison

Hi, Alison. I'm deeply flattered that you'd like to call the watermelon wedge bag your own. However, as it was a gift from the bf - now hubby! - I'm afraid I can't part with it. It came from Lancome, though, if that helps you out in an Ebay or other online search. Best of luck, and thanks for reading!
