Carpe Diem | Firmoo Review



Hey y'all!  I am so blessed and feeling awesome to have celebrated my birthday on yesterday!  As I reflect on years past I have to say I'm proud of how much I've grown.  Life has been hard for me these past few years and slowly, but surely, I'm learning lessons that will carry me through more obstacles I may face.  As I embark on another year of life, I have decided that I will seize the day.  I want to spend less time on social media, more time with family and friends, take long walks in the park, have an ice cream cone with my kiddies, smile and laugh like nobody's business, just grab life by the horns and ride 'til I can't any more.
I decided to dress down today and spend time with my babies at the park.  I watched them play tag, toss baseballs, swing and slide.  And I just soaked it all in.  No phone, no social media, no constantly checking my notifications.   I'm guilty... I have been that mom who reads articles on this or that, or my new book via the Kindle app.  I will not do that anymore.  Life is precious, we only get one, my kids are only going to be young once and I've realized that they notice when mommy isn't giving them her full attention.  My little girl...running and tumbling, yelling "Look mommy, see I can flip!"  Yet, my head is buried in my reading.  I felt like the worse mom after being chastened by God.  While it doesn't always feel good, it's a necessary component for growth and understanding on pleasing my Father.
I wanted to wear something light and airy, so I opted to dress down with a pair of dark denim jeans I purchased from Walmart awhile ago.  I love the fit and the wash.  They pair perfectly with EVERYTHING in my closet.  This white tank with lace overlay was the ideal top for today.  Light, airy and my skin breathed with no complaints.  I dangled orange earrings from my lobes, swiped on some orangey-red lipstick and my new prescription glasses from an online company Firmoo.
When Firmoo reached out to me for a review, I was thrilled because I absolutely can NOT see without my glasses.  I was up for renewal at my eye doctor and thought it would be awesome trying these and comparing them to the pair I purchased from my doctor.  The process was seriously easy.  My 4 year old could have ordered them...lol.  Simply upload your prescription to the website and choose your frames.  You can even try them on virtually by uploading a photo of yourself.  They also offer prescription sunglasses as well.
In my honest opinion, the glasses I chose are sturdy and well made.  They're tortoise on top of the frame with blue on the bottom of the frame.  Sort of an ombre effect.  Love them to pieces!  I have received tons of compliments while wearing them and I feel they fair well against my glasses purchased from the brick and mortar building...lol.  It took almost three weeks before they arrived because they did come from China.  However, I've noticed other bloggers who collaborated with Firmoo received theirs much sooner than I.
If you wear prescription eyeglasses, as I do, you should definitely give Firmoo a try!  Their prices are extremely affordable and the selections range from trendy to conservative and practical.  They even showcase new frames daily. For first time purchasing, follow this link here to receive 15% off your new glasses.  I for one will definitely be trying a new pair.  For the price, you just can't beat it!

  12. Your glasses are too cute and I know deep down I need to give up my iPhone and blog reading when with the kids or answering e-mails constantly but it is so hard, but God is good and I am glad for his Grace but I know sometimes I am guilty of causing behaviors from my kids as they act out for attention. You are doing well Kishina and your kids are lucky to have you. Thanks for linking up to "Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me"
