Many, many moons ago.. I was contacted by a rad gem over at firmoo.com / firmoo.ca asking if I would be interested in reviewing a pair of glasses. Umm.. awesome.. because I also happen to be a goggle-wearer, so I was jazzed!
I picked out an absolutely beautiful pair of tortoiseshell glasses, and they were basically in my mitts within 10 days. Seriously. Fast.
I adore them, but, unfortunately, my eyes do not. I am going to say this is user error, there is a section where you do some measurements so that the lenses are aligned correctly, I figured I had mine correct, but I guess not. I know my prescription off by heart, but not my dimensions. I have that piece of prescriptive paper around somewhere. I should find it. See how far off I am.
When I wear these puppies, it is almost insta-headache and very weird vision. At times I can see fine, but it is like my depth perception has been eliminated. I have banged into walls and done some miss stepping while sporting these - hoping that it was just a case of having to 'break them in'. BUT~ That will not deter me from sharing this awesome site and hopefully introducing any of you prescription glasses wear-ers, and those that wear non-prescription to look 'cool', to a fun and inexpensive provider to help beef up your collection.
I am even putting my good looks on the line for all of you. Enjoy.
You may have noticed in one of the pics that I sort of did my nails to match. Ok, well, I did the tortoiseshell nails ala chalkboard nails.. but I had to amp it up slightly.. and since this blog is particularly about nail polish..
Also, if you're interested in some new specs, you should go HERE, you get to choose from selected frames - you get the frames, case, cleaning cloth, etc, for FREE - you just need to pay for lenses and shipping. Not too shabby at all.
Now for the stuff that I really know.. sort of, nails!
Elevation Polish in Cascade, Tettegouche, and Temperance
Gold Flake Top Coat
Excuse the tip wear and slightly dry-er than usual mitts - I spent the time before the photos doing an almost 12-hour baking/decorating/packaging spree with a friend. It was good. My back and hands hate me now.
My sister gave me an exceptionally rad idea for nail art last night! Be on the lookout for that in the next few days. See you!
