I tend to murder or abandon sunglasses.
I was never sure how this exactly happened. All I knew was that I usually have to buy new sunglasses every six months to a year, because that's about how long it takes. One minute everything is fine, and the next minute my sunglasses are in pieces, or I just can't find them at all (I'm notorious for leaving them at check-out counters when I go shopping).
So a couple weeks ago a representative from Firmoo contacted me to see if I'd be interested in receiving a pair of sunglasses to review. I had been going without sunglasses for about a month, since my last pair bit the dust, so I jumped at the chance!
Firmoo is an online prescription eyeglass company and they also have sunglasses (you can get them with or without a prescription). They have a lot of fashionable options for frames! The prices are also pretty reasonable, but I was excited to be able to try out a pair for free. I decided to go with sunglasses since I don't need any eyeglasses at the moment.
I filled out my application and received them pretty quickly in the mail thereafter! I opened the package and found they came not only with a soft fabric pouch, but also with a hard-cover case, with a special lens cloth too, no less. This made me happy, because I felt sure that I wouldn't be able to kill them as quickly if I could keep them protected in the hard case!
But then I took the sunglasses out of the case, and I think I understood for the first time the difference between my cheap normal sunglasses and actual quality sunglasses. The materials felt sturdier, and I could tell the joints between the earpiece and lenses were nice and strong. I think I'd have to try pretty hard to break these! The lenses also seemed to be made from a lot better material that the ones I normally get. I was very impressed!
Plus, they look good on me. Don't you think?
Firmoo has a lot of different styles of sunglasses (and eyeglasses), but I kind of like the big-lens, disguise-myself-from-the-paparazzi look, and these ones are perfect for me!
Firmoo also has a great promotion right now where they are offering a pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses for free to new customers! Check out this page to learn more details, but you just have to share about the pair of glasses that you like and then they'll give you a free voucher. All you have to pay is shipping (though if you want to get a free pair without having to pay shipping I was told that you should contact Firmoo directly and provide a link to your blog, and they might be able to work something out for you)! This is a really good deal, guys, for a really quality product, so check it out!
So I think my sunglasses-murdering days are over, and I'm so excited about not having to buy new sunglasses all the time! However, as for losing my sunglasses - this could still be a problem. But these are definitely my favorite pair of sunglasses now, and I really don't want to lose them.
So . . . I plan on being extra-protective! Hey, I got over that locking-my-keys-in-the-car thing (knock on wood), so I'm sure I can improve on this too!
