Sun's Out.. FUN's Out?! + Giveaway

This is a sponsored post. All opinions expressed, however, are mine and that of The Caro Diaries. 

Forget sun's out, guns out.. it's all about the fun this summer! Especially with the newest addition to my summer fun collection.

I'm a big sunglasses girl. It's actually the first thing I gravitate towards in any store, and I'm obsessed with sunglasses. I tried on these darling Tom Ford shades months ago, left the store without them, and haven't found them since - and trust me, I've been looking online and in every sunglasses store that I see. I'm also kinda maybe totally obsessed with Ray-Ban, and love my boyfriend wayfarers - they're oversized and perfect! (PS. this is totes not a Ray-Ban sponsored post, but hey there RB if you wanna hit me up, you know where to find me!)

So now that it's summer and my sunglasses reside on my face 24/7, I thought it would be the perfect time to add a pair of croakies to my life. Yes, croakies, aka sunglass straps. So when Gobi Straps reached out to work with me, it was perfect timing and I was super excited to review one of their products.


Gobi was actually born out of a time of struggle - a time where we had to choose between our eyes and our beers. You see, the makers of Gobi decided one fateful summer day on the beach that they wanted to run and play free without their sunglasses falling off, and enjoy a beer (or two or eight) at the same time. What do we do, they must have shouted - or that's how I'm imagining it in my head. Alas, Gobi was born and so the combination of a sunglass strap and a bottle opener came to life, and we have been happy ever since.


I'm a very simple girl. All I want are functioning sunglass straps, but bonus points if they're cute, and Gobi takes the cake! They have chevron, and gingham and plaid, oh my! They even have a seersucker sunglass strap collection, which I without a doubt indulged in, and just in time for the 4th, a patriotic collection: yes, you're seeing right - american flag sunglass straps.. amazing, isn't it? (or so I assume, I'm not American soooo.. #awks)

They sent me a pair from the seersucker collection to review, try out and keep all for myself - and this thing isn't going anywhere because I'm obsessed with it! I'll preface it and say if your sunglasses are a little thicker, put a pencil or pen in the croakie holes for 5 minutes, and it'll stretch out a little bit more to give some room to allow them in easily. As you can see in my photos, I didn't figure that out until after I took them - but I'm teaching you, and that's all that counts!

Actually, just kidding. The only thing that counts is the fact that these are all under $20.. yes, $20! I've spent $20 on a lot less, I'll tell ya that!


So, thanks to Gobi, I'm giving a lucky reader their very own pair, just in time for the summer fun! Head over to Gobi Straps and choose one out right now, because the odds are very much in your favor! 

Good luck! The giveaway runs until next Thursday 26th at 11:59pm!

  17. A pesar de que los bolsos MK son lo que he acuñado como "lujo asequible", una persona con los presupuestos más ajustados puede tener dificultades para comprar una bolsa por cien dólares o más.(Bolsos Michael Kors Rebajas) MK tiene bolsos que van de pequeño, mediano a grande. y varían en precios.(Bolsos Michael Kors Baratos) Los bolsos más pequeños ni siquiera son bolsos ... se llaman muñequeras.(bolsas michael kors precios) O, los uso para billeteras para ciertos bolsos.(Bolsos Michael Kors Outlet) Es mucho más barato hacerlo de esa manera que tratar de tener. una billetera para cada bolso MK que poseas.(bolsos michael kors rebajas)

    Om du planerar att äga en MK handväska och inte vill betala mycket över hundra dollar, är det bästa alternativet att vara den mindre väskan.(Michael Kors Plånbok)Om du är seriös om att hitta MK handväskor för mindre än du bättre tittar på någon annanstans.(MK Väska) Hemligheten att hitta MK handväskor till rabatterat pris är att handla online på en webbshop som säljer autentiska MK handväskor.(Väskor Michael Kors Rea) Du kan hitta bra handväskor till priser som du bara önskat att du kunde betala.(michael kors väska rea) Alla sökningar har gjorts för dig. Jag sparar inte bara pengar, utan också tid.(michael kors väska rea)

    Les sacs à main Longchamp sont à la mode et très pratiques.(Longchamp Soldes Destockage) Étant donné que beaucoup de femmes se retrouvent souvent submergées de choses à emporter chaque jour.(Sac A Main Longchamp) Longchamp a relevé le défi en créant des sacs à main qui sont aussi des fourre-tout polyvalents.(Sac Longchamp Pliage)Les sacs à main Longchamp sont des produits de qualité portant un nom réputé.(longchamp soldes) Les sacs à main Longchamp sont grands et spacieux, mais restent très à la mode et très demandés.(pronote college longchamp)
