Eyeglasses from


I don't normally post "selfies" on the internet, but I needed to show off my new glasses!

Two years ago, I started to notice that my eyes felt a little strained. I've always had great vision, but at night I began to have a hard time reading street signs and when the light was dim in our living room, I had trouble reading text on the TV. I visited the eye doctor and he wrote me a prescription that I never got filled. Woops. (I know that my eyes have probably changed in the past two years, but I still don't have vision coverage, so this will do for now!)

Fast forward two years and I started getting headaches at work almost every day that felt related to my eye strain. I was so excited to get an email from asking me if I'd like to review a pair of glasses! I dug out my old prescription and set about ordering the glasses.

Now, I know NOTHING about glasses and vision prescriptions and all that. That's the reason I never got the prescription filled--because I wasn't sure what to do! (Also, I'm a procrastinator. And then we changed insurances and I lost vision coverage!) The good thing is that Firmoo makes it really easy to order. I provided them with the numbers from my prescription, measured some extra measurements, and I was all set!

Firmoo offers bloggers glasses for review, but they also offer anyone their first pair free! As a blogger, I think I got to choose from a wider variety, but they still have so many fun options that I don't think you'll have a problem finding something that works for you... FREE! 

So, I logged on to and uploaded a photo of myself so I could virtually try on different pairs. I was a little nervous because I've never worn glasses and I felt a little silly seeing my face in glasses! I loved that I could virtually try on glasses, though - it would have been so hard to pick something out that works with my face, otherwise!

I knew I wanted something slightly rectangular since I have a round face. I decided on this pair and I was so glad they were offered in chocolate brown because I was nervous that black would look really foreign on my pale face. I thought the contrast might be too strong and thought that I would feel more comfortable in brown. It was a good choice, I think! wants you to know:

The old opinion that glasses are only necessities for people with vision problems has already gone. Glasses are increasingly becoming a fad and must-have accessories for celebs and fashionistas. Everyday we can spot millions of non prescription glasses wearers and we are constantly fascinated by many noted film stars’ signature non prescription glasses. They instantly upgrade your look of modern, sexy, vintage or geek by wearing different styles of frames.

Any hot glasses/sunglasses /goggles frames you want can be found on Firmoo, and all are available for both prescription lenses and non-prescription lenses. Are you desperate to have a new look? Now here is the chance, Firmoo has launched a First Pair Free Program to people worldwide. You will absolutely fall in love with the excellent quality, affordable prices, fashionable designs, fast delivery and the good service after trying them with paying shipping only! You even can get a refund/exchange if you are not satisfied with them. It's totally Risk free, so why not have a try?

All in all, it was really fun to pick out free glasses and live my new hipster life. I'm finishing this blog post in a trendy coffee shop, drinking a glass of wine, and wearing my new specs. It feels pretty foreign to me, but it's fun to branch out, don't you think??

P.S. Remember that owl auction I posted last week? It went for $252. TWO HUNDRED FIFTY TWO DOLLARS. Wow.

If you're new to Owl Really, welcome! Please check out my favorite posts and consider subscribing! :)


  1. WHOA! $252. So now let's amass a monstrous owl collection and get rich quick! ;)

    I am super curious about Firmoo........because I think I'll be wearing glasses sooner than later.

  2. I'm in! I wear glasses and currently hate the ones I have, so this is right up my ally!

  3. They look adorable!!! So cute! Ordering glasses online is a slippery slope. Pretty soon you will be like me and own 4 pairs that you swap out regularly. I am always looking for more pairs and have been stalking the firmoo free pairs to get some new ones, but I haven't found any yet that I have fallen in love with.

  4. Sassy! Love those frames! Regarding the owl auction, that is just a crazy price. Boo.

  5. you look so cute! love the glasses.

    252? yikes!

  6. The new glasses are nice.

    You only have two eyes, take care of them.

  7. It is great to see someone who order glasses online and it worked for them. I can barely decide in the office what I like b/c I am so blind, but ordering online feels way to scary! I'll certainly scoop these guys out though, free is my favorite word, and maybe it is the push I need to get back to blogging.

  8. Jamie, you look fabulous! The glasses are just perfect for your coloring and face shape!
