That was about when I started wearing glasses.
After wearing speccies for 15 years they have become part of who I am and without them I feel completely naked.
A few weeks ago, I received an email from a company called Firmoo asking if I wanted to receive a free pair of glasses and review them on here.
Firmoo.com is the world's most popular online eyeglasses store. They provide a huge selection of glasses/sunglasses/
goggles frames that all are available for both prescription lenses and non- prescription lenses.
Sceptical. That's how I felt about it. Not because I thought that there was something wrong or dodgy but because I am REALLY FUSSY when it comes to which glasses I like. I usually spend a good few weeks having a look around to scope out the market and then a good few hours in the shops trying on a thousand pairs getting myself pretty worked up. It's a fun time.
With Firmoo things were a little different. Things were easy.
I was taken to their website (super nice and easy to navigate) and had a good look around.
So much choice.
Their Virtual Try-On System helped though and within about 15 minutes of 'trying on' the glasses I narrowed my choices down to three. Ben was brought in (a fellow speccy) to help me make my final choice. I entered my prescription details and BOOM. It was done.
The glasses I chose are these ones; #DBSN5119 ($27)
They are now unfortunately being phased out by the manufacturer/designer which is a bummer but there are tonnes of similar pairs so have a good look around!!
Five days later my glasses arrived.
They came in a hard protective case along with a cleaning cloth, a soft protective case and a tiny screwdriver with extra screws. Super handy.
It may be silly but I was so nervous. I put them on, padded over to the mirror and slowly opened my eyes not knowing what to expect.
They actually fitted perfectly! The prescription was great, they were comfortable and in Ben's opinion I looked 'like a super sexy joebeff'. What more could a girl want??
Since I have received them I have worn them every day and received a bunch of compliments from them.
Firmoo have me sold!!
They are perfect for everyday lounging around the house.
Perfect for cuddles with Goblin. Although judging by the look on his face he doesn't seem to care for them much.
Perfect for wearing to work. Check me out in my super corporate work suit.
Perfect with the little black dress for a night out on the town with the girls.
Perfect for drinks with the boyfriend. And for going the extra mile with the whole GEEK chic thing.
And they are a perfect match for bunches. And four glasses of wine.
If you are looking for some new super affordable specs you should know that they have launched a worldwide 'First Pair Free Program'. All you have to do is pay for the shipping. I promise that you will fall in love with the excellent quality, affordable prices, great designs and the fast delivery.
So there you have it. I am
a little very addicted.
As it has always been a dream of mine to have a wardrobe of different glasses to choose from I am asking for two more pairs for Christmas. Any ideas/suggestions guys???
Side note: My Dad is the biggest advocate for getting things cheaper from the Internet. It pains me to admit he is right about this.
I received a complimentary pair of eyeglasses from Firmoo for this the purposes of this review. I was not provided any other compensation and all opinions expressed here are 100% my own.
