Biz X magazine May 2019 Vol 22 Issue 5 on the cover — “See For Yourself, Baby!” — 18
May is “Vision Health Month” and local optometrists are recommending a number of ways patients can help safeguard their vision. They include special coatings for lenses to protect against Ultra-Violet (UV) rays and blue light from electronic device screens, a healthy diet and regular eye examinations. Most optometrists recommend wearing sunglasses every time you are outdoors because the impact of UV rays is cumulative and can even happen on cloudy days. COVER CREDITS MODELS/SUNGLASSES: Samantha “Sam” Inglis and Josh Demers follow the advice of our expert optometrists and wear sunglasses provided by Seen Vision Care, 1614 Lesperance Road, #6, Tecumseh (HaveYouBeenSeen.com). Sam has the Face A Face Jones 2 and Josh wears a Gucci Flip Top. CLOTHING: Clothing supplied by Caché Boutique, 5975 Malden Road, Unit #3, Urban Selections Plaza, LaSalle (CacheBoutique.ca). Sam wears an off-the-shoulder eyelet lace dress by J.O.A. and Josh is outfitted in a blue short sleeve shirt by Silver Stone and straight leg jeans by Man X One Teaspoon London MR Whites.

34 The Parenting Biz: Here We Grow Again! How Consignment Shops Can Help – De-cluttering, saving money, making a few bucks and conserving the environment. These are some goals we all share these days, both individuals and parents alike. And since children grow out of the clothes you buy so fast and need books/toys relevant to their age, why spend a lot of cash on items that just don’t last? Due to all these reasons and more, it’s no surprise that consignment shops are popping up everywhere. There are many to check out across Windsor Essex, so get out there and sell, shop and feel good about it!
