I was recently contacted by Firmoo, an global online optical store to try out a pair of prescription or non-prescription glasses. Glasses are a huge part of my life, I’ve been wearing them since the age of ten. When I turned twelve, I started wearing contacts and now I switch between the two. All I know is, I’d be blind without either. Lately, wearing glasses have become something of a trend, even for those with twenty-twenty vision. Online retailers have picked up the demands of the market and are offering greater selections.
With the elimination of brick and mortar and less expenses (as they obtain direct materials from manufacturers), Firmoo offers the most affordable eyewear you can get at a quality level. It’s available to be shipped to 68 different countries across the globe. From the moment I was in touch with the company, their customer service has been straightforward and reliable. I was actually thinking about getting a new pair of black frames, so I had a style in mind. After looking through the selection, I scrolled down to skim over the dimensions. Each frame has an exact length and width listed. Nothing is worst than choosing a frame too big or vice versa and having to go through a return via mail. I chose a large oval black frame with grain-colored temples. I wish each frame had its own style name though—this one has a style number of #ZS1117.
I then provided my prescription and shipping information. Within a week, my glasses have arrived. The only slight disappointment is that the width was a bit large, even though I’ve measured the frame to be the same width as my other pair of glasses. The screws on the side of the frames were also not as tight as they should be. But it does come with extra screws and keychain adjuster.
Try a pair for yourself—Firmoo recently launched a new program ‘First Pair Free For New Customers’. Very simple, choose a pair of glasses with single vision lenses and just pay shipping. I’m already thinking about my next pair…round in shape and tortoise in print!
The literary classic American novel The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, in which I read in high school brought about much hype when it was announced as a movie in the making. The plot was based upon the era of the 20’s—1922 to be exact.
During this roaring time period, I only imagined what their wardrobe consisted of. Director Baz Luhrmann’s wife, Catherine Martin, who has been his creative partner for a while now, took on the role as the movie’s costume designer. So what does she have in store for dressing the characters of the Jazz Age? One thing’s for sure, the stars will really shine on the big screen with jewels made in collaboration with Tiffany & Co, creating pieces such as a collection of platinum-set diamonds and pearls. It was a natural move, as the iconic American brand fits perfectly with the theme of the story; classic and beautiful. Much better than ordinary costume jewelry? I think so. The Great Gatsby will be released in 3D and in theaters on May 10th this year.
