four eyes

I'm pretty sure I started wearing glasses in third or fourth grade.
I also had braces at that same time.
Having four eyes and tiny train tracks on my teeth was not a good combo.
Luckily, wearing glasses today is so cool that people wear frames even though they have 20/20 vision.
Who's the cool kid, now?

While I still prefer to wear my contacts most of the time, I was ecstatic when Firmoo.com, a global online optical store, contacted me to review a new pair of glasses. I have been in the market for new glasses for years, but I have always used my yearly insurance money toward contacts instead.
And we all know how indecisive I am, so picking out new frames would have taken forever.
Hell, it took me at least two weeks to pick out the frames I wanted from Firmoo, because they have SO many cute frames to choose from!
Plus, I'm the type of person who likes to try things on before I buy them, so luckily Firmoo's Virtual Try-On gave me the chance to see what my favorites looked like on me before I ordered:


What I really like about Firmoo.com is that it gives you the measurements of each pair of frames, so you can compare the size of your favorite frames to the ones you already have. You can choose to look for frames based on gender, shape, size, material and they even have designer frames.
Here are the frames I chose {top left corner in the collage above}:




Firmoo made it easy to order my new frames and submit my prescription information, and I was so excited when my glasses arrived in just.one.week!
The glasses looked exactly as I had imagined and are of high quality. They also came with a new case, a cleaning cloth, and an adjustment/repair tool.
I didn't even wait to take my contacts out before trying them on.
And that's when I realized I am really bad at measuring, and 10 cm really does make a difference.


The frames are WAY too big on me {reminds me of Drew Carey glasses, no?}.
Oh, the pain of having a pea-sized head. My old frames fit inside these new ones.
Yep, I'm that bad at taking measurements.
But these frames are SO cute and every day I put them on hoping they will fit.
No dice.
But you, my friends, are in luck.
You can get your first pair of glasses FREE with Firmoo's New Customer Program.

So, what are you waiting for?! Go to Firmoo.com right now and get your free, new sexy specs :)
