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 Firmoo.com 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 Firmoo.com 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!

Y’all! Its SO easy and SO delicious!

Ok, so here’s all you have to do…
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.

10 Smoothie Recipes

 


 


 Hey everyone!!! Hope y'all are having a fantastic week! There has been lots of snow here in Alabama! Fab week, but lots of snow... Anyways, it seems like every time I get online lately one of my friends has posted a pic with a fun new smoothie recipe! Needless to say now I have been craving one! I mean like really! A smoothie is one of my favorite healthy treats that I LOVE to enjoy for breakfast or for a snack! They are quick, easy to make, and give me loads of energy! Seeing all these smoothie pics on Instagram lately has gotten me in the mood to find some new recipes and I wanted to share them with you guys also! :)
You can get creative with any of these to your own like! Add Spinach, protein powder, chia seeds, even pasteurized egg whites (the ones in the carton... be sure the label says they are safe to eat without cooking!), whatever you like!
