The sun is actually out today, I cannot quite believe it! This is good fact however as I've been meaning to do a review of some sunglasses for the company Firmoo. I was contacted by Firmoo back in August to see if I was interested in taking part in a product review, of course I said yes! I know it is now October and it's really not sunglasses weather so please forgive me!
Firmoo are an online eyewear company which allows customers to buy prescription glasses/sunglasses as well as just normal sunglasses on their website. Currently they are offering first time customers the chance at a free pair of glasses be these prescription or normal whereby customers only pay shipping costs. I think that after experiencing their service first hand that this is an extremely good offer so please do take a look at their site. If you're thinking of doing this then you can upload a picture of yourself to try on the glasses virtually which is really quite handy!
Now, I'm not normally a huge sunglasses fan I have to say, mainly because I always think that they never suit me. You guys can be the judge of this once you have seen the pictures!
I chose a pair of sunglasses* as I didn't have any at the time and I thought why not, I could give them a go and give my honest opinion to all of you. So I filled out the form that Firmoo provided me with the sunglasses model I wanted and waited for them to arrive. I have to say that throughout contact with the folk over at Firmoo they were really polite and helpful, I felt quite at ease being in contact with them.
On the arrival of my sunglasses I have to say that honestly I was shocked at how nice they were. They feel really well made and look lovely, which is something I do not say lightly when it comes to sunglasses. They arrived in a pink plastic case, with a green cleaning cloth inside. Along with this there was a black carrying case and a little took kit to tighten the little screws etc. This was a nice added touch I think to the service as if you buy sunglasses from a high street store you normally have to buy a case separate and I've never seen any come with a little tool kit.
They are dark purple frames which have showed up a little black in the pictures I'm afraid, but they still look lovely! Check out the cute little bow detail on the sides; I think this is a nice little touch which I have not really seen before on glasses. I love them so much and I cannot wait to wear them in the summer...that's if we get one next year!
Here is me wearing them, I tried to be a little glamorous...I didn't pull it off haha but anyhow, here they are!
*PR Samples. These sunglasses were kindly sent to me to review.
