Firmoo Eyeglasses Review and How to Get A Free Pair For Yourself



I was recently contacted from the sweetest lady at Firmoo eyeglasses offering me a pair to review! I was more than happy to accept this opportunity! (Little did she know, her email was totally a blessing and answered prayer, because I stepped on my glasses and broke them a little while back!)

  I was very impressed when I visited to select my frames. They have a very large variety of high quality glasses to choose from for men, women, and children… classic wire frames, super-cute fashion frames, even sunglasses! You can also order fashion frames with clear lenses if you just want a pair to accessorize an outfit.

      After uploading a photo of myself to to virtually “try on” several different pairs, I finally decided on this gorgeous pair.



  I think they are very classy, yet fashionable. The process to virtually try on the frames was very simple and user-friendly. It had not been very long since my last visit to the eye doctor, so I was able to go and pick up my prescription to include when placing my order.

  Just over a week after placing my order, my glasses arrived in the mail! I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly they arrived and instantly knew I had selected the perfect pair! This pair retails at $39.00 at the Firmoo website and the quality of the lenses and frames is that of a much more expensive pair! They came with a sturdy protective case, drawstring bag, and a soft cloth to clean them with.











  They match my vision needs perfectly and I think they are the perfect way to dress up a casual outfit like in the pic below when I took my niece out for an evening at the park. I have received so many compliments on them!



  I hope you’ll check out Firmoo for future eyeglass needs. I have a feeling you will be very impressed! I know I am. Right now at you can get your first pair FREE!!! Just follow this link! How awesome is that?! I hope you guys have an absolutely fantastic week!! 


Disclosure: This review is my personal opinion only.

Just basically layer the ingredients in your pretty punch bowl in this order: 
Using a knife cut your Angel Food Cake into cubes. Place one layer in bottom of punch bowl.  Then add a layer of blueberries and strawberries. On top of your berries add strawberry glaze. Spread a good inch or so of Cool Whip on top. Continue layering in this order until you have reached the top of the bowl. I like to save  some berries to add to the top to make it look pretty.

Icon Wall Stickers Review and Giveaway

  Hey everyone! Today I have a giveaway for you all! I'm giving away a wall sticker of your choice from Icon Wall Stickers!!! Icon Wall Stickers is an amazing website that offers thousands of removable wall stickers in a variety of colors & sizes to suit every room in your home. They are SO lovely! Also, you won't believe how reasonable the prices are!

  When the sweet folks there contacted me and offered me a sticker to review and one to give to you guys, I was super-excited! I selected 2 stickers for my niece and nephew! My niece Anna Grace is learning to play the piano, so this heart made from music notes in fuschia instantly reminded me of her!  


We are all big Alabama Football fans in my family so I ordered this football player in brick red for my nephew Jonah. I think it looks perfect in his room! 

They took about 10 minutes each to apply and the process was very easy!  If they decide to change their decor they can easily be removed. The kids just love them, by the way! 
Here are a few more of my favorites...
