This is the Fastest Way to Ruin Your Day...

Posted by Nathan Miller on Jul 22, 2014 8:30:00 AM

 

On a hot summer day, it's hard to beat an afternoon at the lake. Cooling off with your friends on a boat can really ease your stress.  That is of course, unless you watch your $100 sunglasses slowly sink to the bottom of the lake. Nothing is worse than watching your hard earned money disappear because of a moment of carelessness. When it comes to water sports and water recreation of all kinds, affordable sunglasses just make more sense.

5 Must-Have Items for Summer Vacation!

Posted by Nathan Miller on Jun 30, 2014 8:00:00 AM

 

With the last weeks of summer vacation on the not so distant horizon, it’s time to talk about holiday travel essentials. So all of us here at Pugs have chipped in to come up with a handy dandy checklist of items that will help get you to your final destination in sizzling summer style:

 

1.) Affordable Sunglasses

Don’t step out the door en route to summer holiday fun without a few pairs of affordable sunglasses. Affordable sunglasses function just like the high dollar brands with one critical exception: they won’t drain your vacation budget.

 

2.) Chargers

Okay, so just because you’re going on vacation doesn’t mean that it’s time to totally unplug. That long wait at the airport, train or bus station is perfect for nailing the high score on Candy Crush Saga or Pengal. Plus, you could always listen to tunes or some trashy summer romance novel on tape. That said, we highly recommend taking one or more chargers with you.

 

3.) Ear Buds

Of course if you are going to heed our previous advice, you’ll need a pair of ear buds or over-the-ear headphones too. That way, you can drown out the sounds of your fellow ticked off travelers or that talkative person that always seems to end up in the empty seat next to you.

 

4.) Bandana

Remember the television show MacGyver? That guy could do amazing things with nothing more than a paper clip and a bandana. Understandably, travel has changed a lot since MacGyver graced the small screen. So we wouldn’t advise packing paper clips for a transatlantic flight. We would, however, suggest that you take along a bandana. For ideas on how one may just save your life, literally and figuratively, check out MoneyTalks News. Their reporter, Donna Freedman, shares her 8 Money-Saving Uses for a $1 Bandana.

 

5.) Patience

Last but not least, holiday travel requires a good deal of patience. After all, you know somebody or something is going to be behind schedule on a holiday weekend. It’s as much of a certainty as that rain storm that invariably happens once you leave the high dollar car wash and detailing place. Thus, you might as well kick back in your affordable sunglasses from Pugs and go with the flow!

Time to Visit Moab for the Ultimate of Outdoor Adventures!

Posted by Nathan Miller on Jun 27, 2014 7:30:00 AM

 

Moab has long been known as the ultimate mountain biking location on the planet. With spectacular scenery and miles of trails it's no wonder people come from around the world to enjoy these legendary rides. From leisurely 'easy' trails to famous black diamonds, like Slickrock and Porcupine Rim, Moab has a bike trail with your name on it.

 

There are thousands of miles of trails available for beginner through expert riders. With the diverse landscape in Moab you can find trails through the mountains, down in the canyons, along the Colorado River and even through Canyonlands and Arches National Parks. And if you just can't decide which one sounds best, you can opt to ride The Whole Enchilada, a 35+ mile downhill (mostly) run that begins in the La Sal Mountains and ends up along the Colorado River combining 6 different trails into one epic ride.

 

Whichever adventure you decide on you need to be sure your bike is in tiptop shape and that you carry the proper gear with you. There are numerous bike shops in Moab that can give your bike the once-over, checking shocks, struts, brakes, chain, gear set and frame for safety and durability.

 

But what else do you need for your ride?

 

Since the average number of sunny days in Moab is 244 and temperatures can easily reach, and exceed, 90 degrees your must-haves should include:

  • water (more than you think you'll need)
  • sunscreen
  • sunglasses

 

As well as the requisite:

  • proper biking attire (moisture wicking is always a good idea)
  • helmet
  • bike repair kit
  • first air kit
  • camera

 

Of course you also need to tell someone your plans and a detailed outline of your route, just in case.

 

Outdoor adventures abound in Moab. After attacking the trails on your mountain bike you can float down the Colorado in a tube, hike up to Delicate Arch, 4x4 on Potash Road or even take a horseback ride on the same trails made famous by John Wayne.

 

Just don't forget your camera or your affordable sunglasses!

The Right Sunglasses Catch More Fish

Posted by Nathan Miller on Jun 24, 2014 7:30:00 AM

 

You may not think it’s important, but wearing the right sunglasses is necessary whenever you are engaging in water sports. Outdoor adventures that involve fishing, boating or water skiing can cause exposure to extreme glare coming off the water or shoreline. This could lead to eye strain, headaches or even sunburn, but these conditions can be avoided with the right protective eyewear.

NASCAR Superstar Rocking Some Classic Glasses

Posted by Nathan Miller on Jun 16, 2014 7:30:00 AM

 

In early June, NASCAR celeb Danica Patrick shared a photo on Twitter that members of our Pugs team couldn’t help but love. It featured the now 32-year old racing phenom as an 11-year old child, clad in her self-proclaimed, army patterned eyeglasses. If you haven’t stopped by her Twitter page yet to check it out, consider doing so before her next big race.

 

In our opinion, seeing the Go Daddy racer smiling happily in her Throwback Thursday eyewear will help fans recover from the pain of witnessing her last NASCAR Sprint Cup finishes at Charlotte and Dover. They helped put her in 28th place, which is a position that we’re sure the spirited Illinois native is none too happy about. Nonetheless, all of us here at Pugs feel confident that she’ll better her position in the weeks ahead.

 

While we all wait for that to happen, why not stop by and take a look at our new releases. We’ve got Pugs sunglasses in stock that can help NASCAR fans look as hot as Danica Patrick, Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne, Denny Hamlin and Ricky Stenhouse, Junior. Plus, they’ll make it easier to see the likes of Casey Mears, Austin Dillon, Marcos Ambrose, Michael Annett and Danica Patrick zipping around the track at races like the Pocono 400, Coke Zero 400 and the Cheez-It 335 at the Glenn.

 

Oh, and if you love animals as much as Patrick, consider checking out our Pugs pet gear too. We’ve got toys and chews in stock that would be perfect for days spent at those racetrack campsites where so many avid NASCAR fans gather on a summer weekend. You could let your NASCAR loving dog chew on one of our products while you grill up the ribs and pop open a cold one. To learn more about Pugs gear that would be perfect for NASCAR weekends and more, check out our website!
