Around the beginning of the month, I received an email from an online glasses store, Firmoo to try out a pair of their glasses and review them. This was the first time I have ever been approached by a glasses company and figured, "sure, why not?" I filled out their application form and waited about a week for my glasses to arrive.
So, what is Firmoo?
"Firmoo is the world's most popular online eyeglasses store. Vision and Fashion the Frugal Way is the ultimate goal of Firmoo, so it has always committed itself to providing customers with high-quality and fashionable eyewear at the most affordable prices.

Moreover, all our glasses are free for first-time customers."
Ideally this is a great way for people who have a small budget to get stylish frames. There are tons of frames to choose from, whether it be glasses or sunglasses so there is a style suited for all tastes. I debated about getting prescription glasses but could not for the life of me find my actual glasses prescription (these differ from contacts) and opted to get a pair of glasses with no prescription. I already have two pairs of sunglasses which I love and didn't want to add anymore in that department.
These were the glasses I chose:
I was pleasantly surprised when I received my package. It came with a hard case, soft case, cleaning cloth and a portable screwdrivers made for glasses.
Overall, I was very pleased with the glasses, I picked a large frame because to be honest, I have a big ol' head that many frames do not fit. The fit is nice, and it doesn't overwhelm my face. I have to admit, it was weird wearing glasses for aesthetic appeal while having my contacts in, but my eyes got used to it. Another plus is that these glasses don't slide down my nose. I don't have much of a nose bridge and if the glasses are too heavy, my glasses slide all the way down to the tip of my nose. I don't know about you, but a snobby librarian look is not what I'm going for when I wear glasses, so I prefer my glasses to stay in place.
I think I look rather chic!
That pretty up wraps up my review, but I do have something else I would like to share with my readers. If any of you are interested, Firmoo is offering first time customers FREE GLASSES! All you have to do is pay for the shipping. I think that's pretty neat. With affordable prices, this is a great way to try out a new style!
