When I was in year one at school, which would have made me 5 years old, I remember an old school friend named Janet walking into class in the morning. She looked different on that day – she had glasses on. 

For years after that moment, I desperately wanted to wear glasses. I had keyboard lessons during my childhood, and one day, in the middle of the lesson, I decided to do something proactive about my love/need/want for glasses. 

I pretended I couldn’t see.

I made out that I was struggling to read the notes on the music and carried this little lie around with my the next week or two, until Mum decided to take me to the opticians. 

I sat in the chair and the optician looked into my eye as I read out letters on the chart. I could see every one clearly, but as the letters got smaller I said I couldn’t read them. I was very excited, this was it – the moment I would get glasses!!!

Well, not exactly. 

The optician said my eyes were perfect, he could not understand why I could not see and told my Mum to take me to the doctors, as there was probably something wrong with my brain.

When I left that optician’s office, I magically regained my sight.

A couple weeks ago, I had an e-mail in my inbox from Firmoo. Firmoo is a website which offers very affordable and very fashionable glasses – both prescription and non-prescription. They have a First Free Pair program and also a virtual try on system to ensure the glasses you want suit you!

The e-mail offered me to try and review a pair of glasses. I picked a pair I liked, and only 2 days later, they arrived. Finally, I am able to wear glasses like I had always wanted – if only this website was around when I was a child. It probably would have been easier than trying to lie my way into a pair.

Thanks, Firmoo!

  1. I love your new glasses. When I was younger I felt the same and I wanted to wear glasses. Kisses, Corinne:)

  2. the glasses really suit you! i should wear glasses, but i don’t really know why as the optician said it wouldn’t actually improve my eyesight which is already good.. so i never even bought a pair, haha! xx

  3. Ahaah naughty you Corinne! Is so weird to hear a person who wanted so bad to wear glasse. Being myopic I have to wear them everyday and really dislike it but with Firmoo frames is really another story, they are great. Love the ones you got, they suit you! And you look very lovely. Kisses dear! xo

  4. Firoo glasses are awesome. I have one pair from them they are very nice. Lovely outfit, I like it!:) BTW I love people that wear glasses, they look more intelligent in my opinion. 😉

  5. Ahaha, I also bought a pair of glasses just so I could get that genius-look but I’m not wearing them anymore. Thanks for visiting my blog Corinne!

  9. Haha, I also did this too – reading your little anecdote was like reliving a memory! Unfortunately, my childhood attempt at lying my way into a pair of glasses also fell short at the opticians, I felt robbed of the opportunity to rock the geek chic look! These glasses are really cute 🙂

  11. I wish I didn’t have to wear my glasses. I was always okay with the prospect of wearing some one day but when the time came, the reality was a bit grim.

    I wish I could experiment with frames but mine are quite complex so they’re a bit boring.
