Calpak carryon suitcase & Eyebuydirect prescription sunglasses

Happy new year, everyone! While being excited for the new year of 2018, I couldn't help look back to 2017, which was a big year for me and Chris. We finished the immigration process while we were in China and then moved back to the USA and finally settled down in Houston.

2017 was filled with challenges and blessings. I felt stressed, worried and insecure during the past year, since a lot of things were going on in my life. Thanks to my wonderful husband and our dear family and friends, everything turned out great. I believe 2018 will be a wonderful year and I look forward to more amazing things happening  to me in 2018.

Just like every other year, I have a wishlist that I would like to full fill for 2018. And traveling around in the US is on top of my 2018 wishlist. I believe a nice trip always starts from a lovely suitcase. This 19 inch pink carryon suitcase from Calpak which I just bought last weekend amazingly full filled my requirement - small-sized, light-weighted and fashionable looking. I'm so surprised for how light it was that I can even lift it up and down easily after everything was packed. 

Being shortsighted barely bothers me except for traveling. I need to switch between my prescription glasses and sunglasses when traveling outdoors where the sunshine is too bright to keep my eyes open. I ordered these prescription sunglasses from Eyebuydirect due to the reasonable price and various choices on frames and lenses. I got them three weeks later and fell in love with them the moment I tried them on. With gradient lenses, they look fashionable and trendy, just like regular sunglasses. 

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you all have a wonderful 2018!
