I Want To Wear.

Wayfarer Sunnies.

Take me back a year ago and I would have vehemently argued that the aviator sunglasses were the peak of sunglass engineering. Is is a perfect blend of history and functionality mixed with the garnish of fashion. (Not that I claim to know a thing about fashion). 


Thing is, I wanted to own something that World War II pilots wore when they were piloting their P-51 Mustangs over the Pacific. I wanted to own something that gave a fighter ace a slight advantage over the pilots of the Rising Sun. The aviator sunglasses were built for that purpose, the curved edge of the sunglass protected the eyes from the sun at every angle. 

It definitely worked for the World War II fly boys, and it still is in use by air force pilots today. I needed one. I walked into Sunglass Hut and tried on a Ray Bans aviators. I looked like a fly with an eyeball disease. Oh to the wells. 

But I need sunglasses! And far beyond it for me to look like Laurence Fishburne in the Matrix. I simply refuse to wear those little eye mudflaps. Or Wraparound Oakleys that would make me look like a wannabe hardcore climber. 

So I found the wayfarers. New sunglasses that took was created with new plastic moulding technology. Worn by JFK and Audrey Hepburn, it definitely is an iconic pair of sunglasses. Granted, it wasn't warn by General Douglas MacArthur, but still. JFK! 
And it looks nice too. So now I want a pair of wayfarer sunglasses and I have no money.

Public health officials launched an aggressive campaign, Cheap Newports, aimed at stamping out smoking in Norway. Today' s move, called " Time to quit? " (" P? tide ? slutte? "), is designed to prevent smoking' s 5,100 annual deaths. The government has set aside 19 million kroner to spend on the previously unconfirmed campaign. Norwegian Directorate of Health Director Bj?rn-Inge Larsen states he is tasked with ensuring young people today are the smoke-free generations of tomorrow, whilst motivating and helping current smokers to stop. " The campaign' s core message is that quitting smoking is good, and help is available," he says Newport Cigarettes Website.

An Australian film containing vivid scenes showing some of the consequences of smoking, including the doubled risk of strokes, will be screened on national television as part of the drive. According to health officials Newport Cigarettes, the footage, dubbed into Norwegian, has been thoroughly tested and shown to have been extremely effective in the US, Australia Marlboro Lights, and several European countries.
