London, September 2013 – It looks like the weather Gods have finally answered our prayers and blessed us with a late summer. Whilst it is always uncertain how long the nice weather will remain in London, you can count on Maui Jim sunglasses for unparalleled eye protection with a stylish flare.
Adding to its ever-growing collection of premium sunglasses, Maui Jim is celebrating the continued summer with three new styles. The first of which is Liana, a strong statement rounded sunglass inspired by Andy Warhol, John Lennon, Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. They are designed to soften rectangular or square faces while adding a pop of memorable style, Liana comes in Gloss Black, Matte Black and Sandstone. Bang on current trend, this style has been spotted on many celebrity faces who are sporting the vintage/90’s grunge eyewear trend. In addition, Liana’s lenses are made from SuperThin (ST) Glass that is 20% lighter and thinner than conventional glass lenses.
However, this summer’s offering doesn’t end there. Maui Jim have also reworked the classic aviator frame through the use of a proprietary memory metal - MauiFlex™ - that can bend, twist then return to its original shape. Maliko Gulch, named after one of Hawaii’s coastal hotspots, is designed to offer the perfect balance of performance and style. Keeping in line with Maui’s Aloha spirit, Kahului Harbor is designed to withstand long days in the sun. Both styles feature Maui Evolution® lenses that are light and durable, designed for everyday activities when precise optics are important.
All of Maui Jim’s high-tech lenses feature nine layers of patented, colour-enhancing PolarizedPlus2® lens technology to block 100% of UV rays and 99.9% of glare. Maui Jim has been voted favorite sunglasses company and best sunglasses by optical retailers and many of the top health, fitness and outdoor sports media around the world.
Maui Jim shades are a must have for any aspiring cool kid and fashionista alike! Not just for the summer, but for LIFE!!!

I've got to admit, I haven't been on my best blogging form this year. I mean what with a new job in the dull world of all things corporate to deal with, a wedding to plan and then cancel because of the news that the baby stork will be delivering us a newborn on the same date we had our wedding booked for - oh and then the past four months suffering with morning sickness, exhaustion and growing fatter day by day, I haven't been at all bothered about attending any blogging events. My event invitation mailbox was filed carefully by keeping my finger firmly on the delete button.
After two weeks of not even bothering to check the in-box, I logged on to find over 1200 emails. With the attitude of, oh delete all, they'll call if its urgent I saw something from the Swatch team. As a proud ambassador for the brand who took me to the MTV music awards in 2011, and whom I have had many a fun evening with, they are one brand I absolutely adore. Every event they host is beyond the norm, always going that little bit further to add the finishing touches, and of course, I am a huge fan of their watches, light, durable and easy to co-ordinate with any outfit in the wardrobe.
I was delighted to receive my invitation.
"Swatch invites you to an exclusive celebration, on 6th July 2013, of a new collection – Scuba Libre – not just a diver’s watch but nine exuberant statement watches drenched in colour and style.
Scuba Libre collection gives water fans what they want; big, bold indicators in high-contrast colours which are easy to read when swimming or diving to the depths of the sea. Each watch is water-resistant to 20 bar (200m) with rotating bezels and snug, rugged silicone straps.
Here‘s more information for the day:
10.45am Swatch Store, One New Change, St. Paul‘s
The celebrations will begin at 10.45am with drinks and light snacks.
11.30am ‘Scuba Libre’ Branded Central Line Train
We will embark on a sea-inspired journey on a Central Line train wrapped by Swatch (expect surprises).
12.00pm Swatch Store, Oxford Street
We will finish our journey at the Swatch Store on Oxford Street where there‘ll be goody bags waiting for you"
It was a great morning, I dragged my 5 year old son with me for the adventure into London, meeting up with my best friend, Nixalina of Sex and London City enroute to the One New Change Swatch Store, where the fun began. We were treated to breakfast bagels and champagne, I opted for the Bucks Fizz version of course! Within seconds of arriving, I had my credit card to the ready as my 5 year old plus 1 had his eyes on a new swatch! Fondly remembering, I learnt to tell the time at his age with my Swatch Flik and Flak watch, I didnt hesitate to spoil him. Not too long afterwards, we head to St. Pauls tube and awaited the Swatch wrapped carriage full of musical treats. A flash bomb of fancy dressed singing scuba divers sang us all the way to Oxford Street where we head to the Swatch HQ to view the new fabulous Scuba Libre collection in finer details amongst the entertainment at the window of the store.
As always, love to Swatch for yet another fabulous collection and yet another amazing press event!
