A Firmoo Glasses Review

firmoo_eyewear_000

When Firmoo contacted me recently and asked me if I’d like to review a pair of their prescription glasses, I said yes. I already own a few different pairs of glasses, but I’d decided recently I wanted a pair of clear frames. Something that was comfortable, somewhat plain and wouldn’t distract too much away from my outfit.

I found the frames I liked and made the order. I have all my prescription details, so it’s pretty easy to input all the data. I can’t say exact how fast they shipped, because they arrived when I was in Melbourne, but they came packed up all secure in a box, with a cleaning cloth & a hard case.

 You may have noticed me wearing them in some of my Instagram pictures lately, as I’ve wanted to make sure I really tested them before I mentioned them on my blog. I love them & even though they are clear (well, they have a pattern on the side), I’ve actually had a few compliments about them. My only suggestion would be to shell out the extra money and get some of the selected add ons, like Anti-Reflective or the  Fingerprint Resistant Coating.

They seem to have a steady stream of glasses going on and off the site. The pair I ordered (these) are now no longer available, but I admit to having my eyes on these and these. I’d also be interested to try their glasses with tinting, and I actually don’t own a pair of prescription sunglasses, and yes, that is annoying! The Firmoo site also has the nifty feature where you can upload your picture and ‘try them on’.

They also have a current promotion that lets you get a pair of selected frames for free. All you have to pay for is the lenses and shipping. You can find more info about that here.

Have you ordered prescription glasses online before?

DISCLAIMER: I was gifted the frames, lenses and shipping for free. I decided to share the review because I was impressed with the product and service. All thoughts and words are my own.

In the dressing room – Kmart & Millers

inthedressingroom-kmart

It’s been awhile since I’ve done an ‘in the dressing room’ post, and it’s one I get asked for often. Only a quick one today, from two stores. First up is this Kmart Tunic. I saw it hanging up and loved the colours in the print. I tried on the 22 and it fit pretty perfectly. The back was black with some elastic darting to give it a bit of shape. It was $17. I didn’t buy it, but after posting the pic on instagram, I decided to go back and buy it. I have been doing good with my “non essential spending ban’, I thought I could give myself a little treat

:P

This outfit is from Millers. I often find a piece or two I like in Millers and they usually offer some BRILLIANT SALES. Today wasn’t one of those days, sadly. I loved this knitted top on the hanger, not so much on me. These pants however = love. I’m really digging harem pants and find they suit my apple shape better then most.

Have you ever gone back into a shop half an hour later to buy something you tried on?

Melbourne Roller Derby

When I was down in Melbourne, a couple of awesome friends invited me to come along and see a Roller Derby match. I jumped at the chance. Apart from watching ‘Whip it’ years ago, I didn’t know anything really about Roller Derby. A few people I knew when I was in Adelaide had joined teams, but being such a recluse at that time, I never went to see any games.

I’m SO GLAD I went though, cause it’s pretty amazing! I didn’t really understand anything until part way through the 2nd game, even after being given a pamphlet will all the info on it. While it’s a very stop & start game, it’s also very fast paced. Sometimes I felt scared to blink in case I missed something!

The games I watched were between the Gold Lions vs WestSide Glory. Then Queen Bees vs Bloody Marys.

I don’t know how they do it. Yes, I know they get taught the right way to fall/land, but I also know I am such a big wuss that if I came down on that floor like some of those ladies did, I’d be sitting there crying. They are some strong and capable ladies!

They also have some pretty amazing names! DaClaire Da Pain, GoldiBlocks, Green Eggs & Slam, Slippery Nicholls, Mad Eye Murphy,  Carmen Attcha and, uh, Crotch Candy. Just to name a few.

Roller Derby seems to be growing in popularity, and Victoria seems to have a large following. If you have any bouts in your area, i’d really recommend you go. It’s a great night of fun, and family friendly!

And I’ll leave you with the VRDL Queen Bees doing the dance from ‘Bring it on’.

Have you been to a roller derby game before? What did you think?
