So I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 6 years old but when I hit my teenage years I also got braces. Having braces and glasses at age 11 was not fun I can tell you, although it was totally normal, as any teenager I just wanted neither! And as soon as I could I had my braces off and got contact lenses. I think because I had glasses from such a young age I have always been concious about wearing them as I felt like a geeky kid, and as soon as I got contacts I felt like a butterfly! This has to change though, I’m well into my 20′s and wearing glasses is cool and I need to embrace it!

Firmoo asked me to try out their glasses so I figured I would try a new style of frame. I decided to go for a buddy holly style unisex frame with half tortoise shell and half metal. Here is the frame I chose: LINK. They only cost $29! You fill out your prescription and they send you the frames along with a case, cleaning cloth and a handy little kit to keep your glasses sturdy! I was really impressed. The quality is honestly amazing, and I’ve tried other leading companies for years.
