Fun Times Sun Times

We aren’t so presumptuous as to call this weather-confused April “spring”, but we’re going to pretend that it is anyway. We here at Queen of Hearts are huge fans of the sun, and the idea of an incoming sunny springtime makes me so excited to bust out my springtime gear that I’m going to write a blog post about it!

Sunglasses are a necessary sun accessory, as anyone who’s ever stared directly into the sun without them is aware of! We are constantly receiving new shipments of AJ Morgan sunnies, which are not only UV 400, but come in some of the slickest, sickest, show stopping styles and colors I’ve seen. Each pair is $24 at the shop and they are *always* going like hotcakes.

The circular, rosy-amber lensed Moonies Sunnies are a nod to the Mods of the 1960s. I have a pair, and I adore them, because these magical lenses make every day look slightly rosier! They have been particularly effective for this dreary and gray April.

While sunglasses take on the role of protecting your eyes, hats take on the role of keeping your head cooler and warmer (heh, get it?).


I can confirm that there is no cooler fedora than the Jenna Fedora. It is woven with care from Brixton and decorated with the most adorable rose. Aren’ t the simplest touches the most charming?

Fortunately for all of us, you don’t *just* need to wear plant prints this spring, because we have a bountiful selection of real live plant babies for you and yours!



Not only do we house small and medium potted succulents, but we also have airplants (tiny and adorable sprouts with the ability to stay afloat without soil!) and mini terrariums for airplants. These plants are all rather low-maintenance, only requiring water twice a week and lots of sunlight. Not to mention, they are such beauties!

…and so are you. That’s why it’s so important to protect yourself in the sun! With your hat and sunnies, you are almost set for complete sun protection. However, you can’t forget about your lips – that’s where Barr-Co’s super luxurious Spanish Lime lip balm comes in.


This balm smells lovely, soothes with shea butter, and leaves lips feeling naturally soft without that horrible sticky feeling.

With this complete package of spring things, you are sure to thrive like one of May’s flowers! So thrive, my #queenofheartsbabes!
