New Glasses, Mustaches and Finger Guns

As I mentioned yesterday, I got new glasses:

When the folks at Firmoo asked if I’d like to try out their glasses, I was pretty excited; I’d been wearing the same pair for two years and wanted to try something new.  The Firmoo site was very easy to use and has an avatar you can try glasses on, or you can upload your own picture to see how the glasses will actually look on your face.

I used the avatar, but probably should have uploaded my own photo because I’m not sure I picked the best glasses for my face.  I wanted something a bit bigger than my old pair because they had a tendency to cover my eyes at times, but these might be too big.  They might, in fact, be so big that I’m a mustache and a leisure suit away from being a 70s lounge singer.


The glasses themselves are great.  I got style # SD2395, and they’re nice and lightweight, they don’t pinch or rub at the nose or above the ears (often a problem for me) and they came with both a soft and a hard case.  I’m just not convinced they’re great on me.  Luckily, I won a voucher for Firmoo from Heidi at Heidi-and-Seek, so I can try out another pair!

And you can try out a pair too!  Firmoo has a world-wide First Pair Free Program where anyone can try their first pair of Firmoo glasses for free; all you have to pay is the shipping.  You can get any pair of glasses as a prescription, including sunglasses, or you can order a non-prescription pair.  And, if for some reason you aren't satisfied with your glasses, you can get a refund or exchange them for something you like better.  But, I suspect you'll like them and I know you'll like Firmoo's customer service.

Happy Saturday, Everyone!



  1. YAY Finger Guns (PIEW PIEW!) I don't think those glasses look bad at all. Maybe you are just to used to the other smaller ones.

  2. I think the new glasses are cute! Maybe a little on the hipster-nerd side, but not too huge to be unwearable. I think the shape of them suits your face.

    I wish Firmoo carried smaller frames. I stick with ordering from Goggles4U because they carry a huge selection for tiny faces. Always make sure to check the measurements when ordering online. Compare the measurements to your current glasses to get an idea of how big they'll be.

  3. I got a pair of sunglasses from them! I like your mustache photo! hehe. I haven't seen you at my blog in a while.

    Oh, I would also like to invite you to come visit my blog and enter my international giveaway! it's my first giveaway and is celebrating the 1 year of my blog as well as Christmas! It is super cute and has hello kitty, jewelry, mustache stuff, art and inspirational gifts! :D I look forward to your visit! Here is the link:

    Merry Christmas& happy birthday Jesus,

  4. I think you look fab, and the finger mustache is the ultimate accessory : >

  5. I think they look great, Gracey, bigger frames are really cool and they suit you. Not lounge singer at all! Except when you did the 'tache thing... Then I saw it a little bit! xxxx

  6. I do like the frames you picked a lot, but I think I see what you mean- my first glasses had much more lens space below my eyes than above, which did not turn out to be as flattering as shorter frames in which my eyes are more centered in the lens.

  7. Love your pics and the glasses look very nice.

  8. I think these glasses look great on you. I love the tortoiseshell frames, and I don't think they look too big. But it's always better to have several pairs of glasses to fit your moods when starting out for the day.

  9. I'm actually planning on getting some more glasses in the next month or two. I took a whole year and a half break from contacts and I was loving my frames. That was until I lost them during paint ball -- no fun. Now I'm back to contacts, but they've been irritating me lately so I'll be making a purchase soon. I want something funky. My friend does an effortlessly amazing job at rocking frames in white and red. Hopefully, I can accomplish such greatness as effortlessly as her. Thanks for the frame-spiration!


  10. Ha! Love your sense of humor. You look better in a moustache than I did. :)


Hooray! Comments! I love comments!! (And cake, but if you just leave a comment, I'll manage the cake on my own).
