New Specs from Firmoo {and a discount code}

I purchased my glasses with my own money; the opinions shared is my own. 

I was about 7 or 8 years old when I got my first pair of glasses. I remember walking out of the doctor’s office, looking at my mom, and saying “I didn’t know there were individual leaves on trees.” For years, trees had looked like brown rectangles with green circles. And people looked like walking blurs. I didn’t know what I wasn’t seeing until I did.

My vision was bad. It’s still incredibly bad. My lenses are thick. Which means that I have to have my lenses thinned out and I have to be careful about the frames that I choose. If they’re too big, thinning them out is moot. And if they’re too small, they look odd on my face. This is why I’ve pretty much stuck to the same shape {and pair} of frames for the last 3 or 4 years. I also have light sensitive eyes. So the expense just adds up. One pair of glasses usually costs me between $450 and $500. And I don’t go designer on the frames.

BUT I WANT TO WEAR FUNKY GLASSES!!!!

That’s where Firmoo comes in. I happened to be cruising the web, as one does, and I saw an ad for Firmoo and decided to take a look. My youngest daughter ordered a pair of glasses from them about a year ago and they were super cute. But her prescription isn’t as “intense” as mine, so I didn’t think it was an option for me. Then I found two pair that I really liked and they were offering a discount, so I decided to place an order.

I’m not gonna lie, I was nervous. I’ve literally been checking my email daily since placing the order because I kept expecting a “Dear Daenel” email telling me that they couldn’t fit my prescription into the frames that I’d chosen. My glasses arrived today and, y’all, I’m beyond thrilled. Because I wasn’t sure what to expect, I did go a little on the cheaper end of the frame selection because I didn’t want to be wallet hurt if I hated the results.

I’m so in love with these frames!

This pair kinda remind me of this Stace Face tee by Alice + Olivia {to this day, I still regret not getting the mug when Starbucks had them for sale}.

Firmoo Eyewear Review Floral Frames {living outside the stacks}

This pair is for the summer when I’m feeling all flower childy and I still need to see.

It took about 3 weeks for my glasses to arrive, which isn’t bad considering I normally have to wait up to 6 weeks. The price was beyond anything I could have imagined. My glasses came to $165 TOTAL. I had everything done to these that I’d normally do to my glasses, except for the tint {the tint from my other glasses was starting to interfere with my ability to take photos}. My glasses are lightweight, which was another concern. And they came in a hardcover case with extra screws and a screwdriver {I’ve never had glasses come with an accessory kit before}.

Because you’re ordering online, you are responsible for making sure all of your measurements are accurate, so you may want to go see an eye professional for that. Also make sure that you’re using a current prescription, because ~ Hel-lo ~ you want to be able to see.

Anyway, now that I know that I can order from Firmoo without any issues, be prepared to see me with all of the ocular accessories!

Do you wear glasses? Do you look at them as an accessory or as a necessity?

If you’d like to give Firmoo a try, use this discount code: santagift for 50% off. It’s good until 30 January 2018.

Side note: I’m wearing the size medium earrings from Nickel & Suede.

Have a good week,

    Oh friend! Reading this reminds me of my boys. When they each got glasses in elementary school they had the same reaction – look at all I can finally see! I felt so badly that they weren’t able to see properly for so long.
    Me, on the other hand, ugh. I just started wearing glasses in my 40’s. Honestly it’s been rough because I’m not used to seeing myself this way. I bought a pair that I like and would love to wear funky frames. I also tried contact lenses but because I need progressives the prescription was too hard to get used to. I may try again. Even with my vision insurance my glasses were expensive so I’m not sure how many funky pair I can afford but if I’m going to wear them I may as well have fun with them! I love the glasses you chose!
    xo,

    • I felt the same way when my kids needed glasses. I always thought I’d know because I needed them. And they had the same reaction. It’s kind of funny and sad. Because we really don’t know what we can’t see until we can. The Hubs just started wearing glasses too and he apologized because he never understood why I kept telling him that we couldn’t just go without our glasses while the doctor filled the prescription.
      I used to wear contacts, so I totally get how you kind of feel like a stranger in the mirror. Now that I wear glasses most of the time, when I see my face without them, I get a little jolt. I feel like something’s missing. LOL
      Glasses are crazy expensive. I’m glad I discovered Firmoo. I’ll probably get 2 more pair because of the 50% off and then just rotate. I really want a pair of cat eyes.

        I’m going to check out Firmoo, it would be nice to have other options with a little more character!
