When Nerdy Became Cool

I have always had glasses. Since first grade, age 6. My vision is TERRIBLE. I can only hope that our children inherit Eric's eyesight.   A few years ago, I started having talks with my doctor about Lasik vision surgery.  While the thought was appealing initially, when it came down to it, I didn't really MIND my contacts (once I switched to daily throw-aways, that is), and when it came to my glasses, I was downright reluctant to give them up.  They've always just been a part of "me."

I suppose I've come to view my glasses as more of an accessory than I did when I was growing up, and I have several pairs in rotation at a time. Firmoo contacted me and offered a free pair of glasses for me to review, and I was game.

I prefer plastic frames to those with "nose pieces," because I just personally find them more comfortable, so I went with this pair, in tortoise. 

I'm pretty impressed with the quality of these glasses, honestly.  They're comfy, and the plastic is sturdy.  I also found the website pretty user friendly, and it was easy for me to enter my prescription information (call your eye doctor and ask for a copy). I also like that you can upload a photo of yourself to virtually "try on" the glasses before you order; I have a pretty small face, so this feature helped me make sure I wasn't ordering a pair of large frames that looked ridiculous and oversized on my face.

What's even better? You, lovely reader, can get a free first pair too (prescription, or non-prescription), by using this link! All you pay is shipping! And, if you're wary of online purchases without trying things on like I am, you should know that Firmoo does offer easy returns or exchanges.  Feel free to share the "free pair" link with as many friends and family members as you like.

That's something that even Pierre can get excited about...

as excited as he gets, anyway.

 I'll be back tomorrow with a big update, and some moving tips for your pooches...until then, I'm enjoying being back in the Carolinas and therefore, closer to a very dear friend I'm spending the afternoon with today! 

Note that I don't review products that I wouldn't sincerely consider buying myself to begin with, and while Firmoo did provide a free pair of glasses to me, all of my opinions are 100% uncompensated and are my own.
