The most visible and popular fashion accessory worn is something you wear every day—eyewear. Whether prescription or just a fashion statement, your eyewear usually stays the same every day until you either accidentally break them or until it’s time to go back to the eye doctor for a stronger pair. If you’ve gotten into the habit of buying cheap "designer" shades off the street you've probably sacraficed quality and space in your dresser, especially if you don't have an entire closet dedicated to sunglasses like Bono. With all of this in mind, a start-up company in Barcelona has created an innovative, customizable solution to our eyewear woes with Uniqbrow Sunglasses.
Just when Joonbug thought we heard of it all—there's always something new and fun on the horizon! The Drink Hanky is an innovative creation for your beverage of choice from native New Yorker Amanda Bertoncini. The idea originated when Bertoncini (working in the fashion business in NYC) went for a weekend drive with her father to meet her grandparents in Queens, NY for Sunday dinner. They would always stop for coffee on the way. After receiving their drinks from Starbucks, she began to notice her iced coffee was leaking everywhere in her cup holder. The idea came to mind right at that moment! She needed to design a high-end Snuggie type creation for everyone's beverage. Voila, the Drink Hanky was born.

Nothing is more exhilarating than the rush of endorphins and by the end of this one hour class, you will be grinning ear to ear for pushing yourself. Boot camp couldn't have described it any better.
