By the time I was born, my parents had bought me a pair of pair of black fins on my first day at school.
I’d never worn them before and they were a bit odd looking in a way, but they were also quite stylish.
I never quite got over the idea of having a pair on my face, but now that I’m a mum, I’m getting used to them and I’m happy to have them.
The idea of buying a pair is actually a bit of a new one for me.
Before I was a mum and a grandmother, I’d only ever bought a pair to use on the beach.
I bought a couple of pairs of black finned sunglasses to use in the rain and I would also wear them as my primary pair when I went out to restaurants, or if I was at a festival.
I loved the look of them and they always seemed to work well with my natural hair.
I’m actually not quite sure how long I’ve been wearing them, but I have a couple that are probably 20 years old.
Black fins are one of the most sought-after and stylish accessories in the world.
They are made of a hard-wearing material that is often called ‘skin’ or ‘wool’ and are known for their softness, comfort and breathability.
I had a pair before I was really into it, and I’ve never really been shy about wearing them.
They’re also really easy to clean, which is a plus when you have a busy mum.
So what exactly are black fins?
Black fins are a type of waterproof synthetic material.
They have a very soft and comfortable feel to them, with a very thin and flexible core that provides a barrier between your skin and your sunglasses.
Black fins can be used in the water, but the material is more comfortable to wear on your face.
They can also be worn with an outer shell, which gives them extra protection from the elements.
They also have a high impact rating and are designed to be waterproof to a depth of around 3m.
Black finned eyewears are often thought of as being for the beach, but some people have been wearing these for longer periods.
For me, the first time I wore a black fin was when I was on a boat with my mum in 2012.
I used to wear a pair every year or so, but it was always the same pair.
As a mum with a child in tow, it was just so refreshing to wear these sunglasses in the cold, wet and windy weather.
I’ve always loved wearing black fins and I still do today.
They offer me that very unique comfort and feel, and even though they’re not as comfortable as the more traditional sunglasses, they are so much more comfortable than the standard black fin glasses.
They keep my hair out of my eyes and keep my sunglasses looking fresh and natural, and they also have the added benefit of giving me a bit more control over my hair in the summer.
As a mother of two, I think I’m the only one who really knows what it’s like to wear black fins for extended periods of time.
They really are quite special to me, and if I had to compare them to the other types of glasses I’ve worn, they’d probably fall into the ‘bronze’ category.
The ones I wear to go swimming or festivals, or just to look good, are often black fins.
For my work, I usually wear black fined glasses on my commute to work.
The same goes for going out in the sunshine.
I don’t usually wear them in the winter or at home because I tend to be too hot or sweaty.
Black finned glasses are definitely one of my favourites, so I’ve always wanted to try them.
So, what do you need to know about black fins if you’re a mum?
As a mum who is always on the go, I can definitely relate to the frustration when it comes to getting those perfect pair of sunglasses.
They do take up space on your sunglasses, but you can wear them while you’re walking around with your phone, watching a movie, or simply taking in the view.
They work great in the wind, and it’s great that they’re waterproof, but if you need some extra protection for when you’re at work, then you’ll definitely want to buy black fins as your primary pair.
