Ray-Bans have been around for a number of decades. In that time they have been worn by many of the world’s most high profile stars.

From movie stars to singers and even Presidents, the appeal of these sunglasses has won over many admirers over the years.

James Dean

One of the very first stars to look great with Ray-Bans on was also one of the first. James Dean became an icon when he appeared in Rebel Without a Cause wearing Ray-Ban Wayfarers.

This powerful endorsement of the brand is credited as being one of the reasons why it became so sought after in the early days. Dean looked amazing with his Ray-Bans on and suddenly everyone else wanted to copy his style and his attitude.

Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe is another huge star who decided that wearing Ray-Ban Sunglasses was an incredibly cool thing to do. In fact, you may have seen her image used in the 75th anniversary celebrations of this world famous brand.

Her use of these glasses helped their appeal to reach out to more people, as she was one of the world’s most photographed people at the time. If James Dean added a coolness factor to Ray-Bans then Marilyn made them glamorous and sexy when she put them on.

Bob Dylan

Dylan helped to add mystique and edginess to the sunglasses brands when he put them on.
The singer songwriter went through a phase in which he was rarely seen in public without his tinted glasses on.

They provided the perfect counterpoint to his tousled mop of hair and he looked every inch the mysterious, bohemian poet with them on.

John F.Kennedy

Even US Presidents wanted in on the act of looking cool with Ray-Ban sunglasses on. In the case of JFK, he would often put on a pair of Wayfarers when he was out relaxing at the weekend.

This helped to add to his youthful, film star look, of course. Few political leaders have looked as good as JFK did with sunglasses on.

John Lennon

Another of the world’s biggest stars to have worn Ray-Ban glasses with style was John Lennon.  The ex-Beatle apparently had very bad eyesight and often chose to wear Ray-Ban glasses with prescription lenses to stay looking cool while being able to see clearly at the same time.

Lennon definitely helped add a degree of hipness and modernity to the brand at a time when it needed to update its image and face up to modern rivals and changing tastes.

John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd

Perhaps the most amazing use of sunglasses in the history of cinema came in the Blues Brothers. John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and the rest were almost unbearably cool when they slipped on their Ray-Bans.

The music is this weird yet massively successful movie was memorable but many people remember the dudes with the suits and the shades even more than the tunes. The impact of their style is still remembered too and probably still plays a part in helping people to decide that the time is right to slip on some sunglasses.

Tom Cruise

If you can remember Tom Cruise in Risky Business then there is a fair chance that it is with a spectacular pair of Ray-Bans perched on his nose. This ushered in a new era for the sunglass maker, as it used product placement in movies to boost its image.

Cruise then made an even bigger impression with his Ray-Bans on Top Gun. This movie was an especially good place for the manufacturer to show off their wares, as the original use of Ray-Bans was for use by pilots who needed their eyes protected from the sun at high altitudes. Later on, he would wear them in his Mission Impossible movies as well.

Madonna

The movie Desperately Seeking Susan might not have been a huge success, but it let us see how good Madonna looked wearing a pair of stylish Ray-Bans. The singer’s attempt at becoming an actress didn’t work out but her style in the movie worked wonders for the sunglasses brand.

Madonna also took to wearing the shades when she was off-screen as well. In fact, they were soon to become a big part of her image and something that millions of women all round the world wanted to copy.

The Reservoir Dogs Characters

Kitting out the entire group of criminals in Reservoir Dogs with Ray-Bans was a masterstroke from Quentin Tarantino. The director made a massive impact with this film and the style of the actors had a lot to do with it.

Tarantino was even awarded a Ray-Ban Visionary Award for the style with which he pulled off this movie.

Ways To Save Money In The Month Before A Big Vacation

If you have a big vacation or holiday coming up in a few weeks time, you might want to tighten your belt. It could be that the trip has taken away a chunk of your savings, or that you want to save the majority of your money for when you’re there! Whatever the reason, this isn’t uncommon. However, the weeks leading up a vacation can actually throw up some big expenses. You’ll need to source the correct clothing, and find the correct sun protection. You also don’t want to have a totally miserable time before you go, without any treats at all.

So with this in mind, let’s look at a few ways you can save money in the month before a big vacation!

Base your treats around the holiday

Instead of spending money on meals out or cinema tickets in the lead up to your big vacation, stay at home. There, do activities based around your vacation. If you’re headed to Japan, stay at home and try making Sushi! If you’re going to New Zealand, watch a Lord of The Rings film and marvel at the scenery. All three movies were shot entirely in the country! Marvel at the mountains, we mean… not to Orks! Or just snuggle up on the sofa and read a local guide book. These things will get you even more excited for your vacation, and you’re not spending money on expensive activities either.

Buy clothing carefully

If you’d have had many months before your vacation, it would be wise to start picking up bits you need well in advance. Buying summer ideas in the winter are much cheaper, for example. However, if you only have a month to go, you’ll have to be even savvier. Search the internet for coupons and vouchers, like Pacsun coupons. This allows you to save money on things you actually want!

Buy multipack sun lotion

If you are going to a hot or warm country, you will need to protect your skin. It is often the case that multi-packs of sun lotion are cheaper that buying the same amount individual. Also, don’t think that price means quality. As long as it has a high enough factor and both UVA and UVB protection properties, it will do the same job. Don’t be tricked by clever branding or shiny packaging! It may be the same product inside the bottle!

Wait to book your excursion

In some cases, booking excursions and activities for your holiday can be more expensive if done from home. The agency or company may be acting as middlemen between you and the actual people who run the activity. This means that price will be higher, as the middle men have to take a cut for themselves. Instead, it could be really wise to wait until you arrive at your destination to book. Of course, you run the risk of the prices being the same, or what you want to do being fully-booked. But if you’re feeling brave, it could really pay off financially.

What Kind of Holiday Can Your Car Help You to Have?

Choosing what kind of holiday to take should be great fun, but often it turns out to be far more stressful then it need be.

The good news is that by getting away in your car you can vastly increase your possibilities of having an unforgettable trip. What type of holiday will you take in your vehicle?

A Driving Holiday

You might think that any type of holiday you take in your car is a driving holiday. However, in this context we are looking at those trips where driving takes up a lot of the time.

This could mean driving to a faraway destination with a few brief stops along the way or it could mean the sort of adventure on the open road where you split the time between a few different places before heading home.

There are also a couple of different ways of arranging this sort of driving holiday. One approach is to plan it all very tightly, in order to make sure that you go to all of the places you want go to.

Alternatively, you could sort of go with the flow and just make up your plan as you go. This is a more exhilarating prospect for a lot of drivers but might not be right for everyone, especially those who are on a short break from work and need to get back on time.

A Family Holiday

Arranging family holidays can be extremely stressful. If you are thinking of flying away then concerns about taking away enough luggage and keeping the kids entertained on the flight can really start to prey on your mind.

The great thing about getting away in your car is that you can put down something like a Hatchbag car boot protector and then pile in a lot of luggage. This means that you can forget all about airline luggage allowances and having to carry all the stuff to the bus or train.

It is likely that the younger members of the family will also love getting away like this. A car trip is far more exciting to most kids than any other sort of transport.

You can play games together, they can sleep in the back and you can basically relax and treat it all like a big adventure. If your children aren’t used to spending a lot of time in the car then you might want to take them out for a spin a few times beforehand, to make feel comfortable.

In this way, you could even take away the family dog on holiday. With the help of a BMW boot liner you can make the boot a place where they can sit comfortably without making a mess.

You can also stop to eat, to go to the bathroom or just for the kids to stretch their legs if they are getting bored.

A Romantic Break

Is there anything more romantic than heading off into the sunset together on a road trip? This way of getting away lets you spend a lot of quality time together right from the word go.

Rather than getting stressed out in airports or on buses, you can relax together for the whole trip. Just stick on some great music, settle back and enjoy the feeling of being together without any cares in the world.

This is a fine way of getting away to quiet, secluded spots that might be far away from airports and bus routes. There is no need to go where everyone else goes if all you want to do is spend some time together.

Driving away for your romantic break also gives you the enticing possibility of stopping along the way if you spot somewhere interesting you both want to explore.

A Stress-Free Trip

Finally, the most important thing for any sort of holiday is to avoid stress as much as you can. We get away on a break in order to unwind and recharge our batteries but how often do you find that you arrive to your destination more stressed than before?

Airports and big train stations are very stressful places. Part of the problem is that you are reliant upon other people’s schedules rather than your own.

Instead of standing there nervously watching the departures board and counting down the minutes you can take it easy in your car all the way. This is the best way of taking advantage of every single minute of the holiday.

If you want to choose the kind of holiday that you love from start to finish then get behind the wheel and hit the open road next time.
