My obession with eyewear started early.
When I was in second grade, I really wanted a pair of eyeglasses. I don’t remember why – most likely because a friend had gotten them or I’d seen someone on TV wearing a pair. I’m such a follower.
Anyway, I remember trying to drop hints to my parents that I may be in need of prescription eyewear. You know, telling them I had a hard time seeing the board in class – that sort of thing. I bugged them so much that they finally took me to get my eyes checked. The result? Perfect 20/20. I confessed then and there that I really just wanted a pair of hot pink frames. Could I please just have some with clear lenses?
I’m sure you can guess how they responded to that request…
Alas, my dream of pink glasses was scattered to the wind. Fast forward to junior high. I’m told during my annual hearing and vision screening at school that my eyesight is now atrocious and I need to go see an optometrist. Did I still want hot pink frames? Absolutely not. Seven years had passed and I was now mortified by the thought of having to wear glasses.
But now that I’m the ripe age of 31, I don’t mind wearing my glasses from time to time. Plus I have this silly notion that they make me look smart. A stretch, I know, but just go with it, okay?
So when the lovely folks at Firmoo.com contacted me and asked if I’d like to try a pair of their glasses out for free, I gladly accepted. I have to admit, I was a little skeptical at first. The whole idea of buying glasses from the internet seemed a little odd to me. But after doing a little research I found out that, per usual, I’m way behind the times and all the cool kids are buying their glasses from the interwebs. Who knew?
I liked Firmoo’s site from the get-go. It’s easy to browse and they have tons of amazing frames to choose from. Their prices are very, very affordable – which is good because I don’t have massive amounts of $$$ to drop on designer glasses. Their site also has this neat Virtual Try-On tool that allows you to upload a picture or use one of their stock model photos to help you see how different frames will look on you.
After browsing through all of the different options, I settled on these:
The whole ordering process was extremely easy and my glasses arrived just two days after I placed my order – not bad! Overall, I’m very impressed with the quality. I love the look of my new frames and they are super lightweight. Also, they came with a two handy travel cases -which is awesome because I’m famous for losing my cases.
Now, don’t be jealous – you can get some new glasses from Firmoo for free too! Their Free Eyewear for New Buyers program focuses on providing free eyewear to first-time customers. So if you haven’t placed an order with them before, you can choose ANY EYEWEAR – prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses or fashion frames – at Firmoo.com and get them free! All you have to do is pay for shipping – which in my opinion is pretty sweet deal! For more details on the program, visit http://www.firmoo.com/free-glasses.html
I may have already cashed in on my free pair, but I’m thinking maybe a pair of prescription aviator sunglasses might be a good investment…And also maybe I should get some frames that have a little pop of color in them – you know, so I can look fun and smart…This could be trouble.
