Firmoo glasses - updating my look

I'm quite happy wearing glasses.  I've worn them since I was 7 years old and they are just part of me.  Almost part of my personality!  I do enjoy wearing contacts, they give me some freedom and allow me to embrace my addiction for sunglasses but I only wear them a few times a week.  The rest of the time it's all about the glasses.

Firmoo contacted me recently and asked if I'd like to update my look and choose a pair of glasses from their vast collection.  When I say vast, it really is!

I've used Firmoo once before and found their site easy to use.  Since then they have improved it again.  It's easy to navigate.  They have glasses grouped according to shape, material and frame type.  As someone who has worn glasses for so long, I have a good idea of what shapes & frame sizes suit me so I found this very useful.  If you aren't so sure, you can have a look at their stock photos to see how a frame looks on them, or you can upload your own photo!

Once you have selected your frames, ordering them is straightforward.  You can enter all of the details of your prescription manually or if you're at all unsure you can upload a photograph of it so that their trained staff can make sense of it for you.

I went for a very 1950s frame, something very bold.  I chose to have 1.57 index (high index) lenses because my prescription is strong with anti UV and radiation coatings for better protection.

Once I had placed my order I waited with baited breath and I didn't have to wait long.  In less than a week my new glasses arrived well packaged in a good solid case.  I tried them on and whilst they felt quite good, I decided to pop into a local opticians to make sure the fit and prescription was correct.  The frames needed a little adjustment to make them comfortable to me (not something Firmoo could do) but it only took a few minutes and cost me nothing.  Well worth doing because now the frames fit like a dream.

My new glasses from Firmoo - Ethan joining in!

I'm very happy with them.  Whilst they are quite bold they are getting lots of compliments and I'm having fun wearing them.  Firmoo frames are very affordable and I think that the service is excellent.  I've got to be honest, I'm planning my next pair!!

If you are one of my US readers, you might want to take a look now - they are currently offering 50% off all frames using the code MD50 for Memorial Day.

I'm linking up today with my beautiful friend Maria of Very Busy Mama for #RealMomStyle and Transatlantic Blonde for #WIWW.
