It’s Friday! How was your week? Mine was busy, juggling family and the store, but I don’t think that’s going to change any time soon! I’ve always admired working moms and have jumped into this new “normal” without much forethought. I feel like I’m winging it in a lot of areas these days and I really need to get organized with planning ahead for meals, etc. My house is finally somewhat clean and tidy but I suppose I should get regular cleaning days on the new routine too! Do you work outside of the home? Have kids? A husband? A dog? Any life balancing tips will be gratefully accepted! It will take a bit of time for us all to adjust to my days at work but I think we’re on the right track and I am so thrilled to be living my dream as a store owner. Someone who has been a big supporter, helping this dream come true, is my dad and today is his birthday…Happy Birthday Dad!!!
Rachel and I have always hesitated accepting items in exchange for product reviews but this one from Firmoo was too good to pass up and I’d love to share it with all of you! The online eyeglasses store, Firmoo, contacted me with an offer of free prescription glasses in exchange for an honest review. I was a little skeptical until I looked through their site and saw the wide range of stylish glasses at incredible prices…we’re talking really affordable, like $8-$40 per pair! I’ve been putting off getting new specs for years, despite the fact that mine were really old and had been bent beyond repair, due to the looming cost of a new pair so this offer came at perfect timing. My new glasses arrived within 2 weeks of sending Firmoo my prescription and I was really impressed by the high quality of the frames and the fit…I didn’t even need to get them adjusted!
But the free pair aren’t just for me to enjoy…Firmoo recently launched a program
And, hello! Here I am in my new specs! They are a little bit bigger than I pictured but are super comfortable and give my eyes a much needed break from my contact lenses. Wondering which pair I chose? With free glasses on the line, I really splurged and picked this $8 pair in Tortoise. Firmoo paid the shipping for me this time but even at regular price with shipping costs, the expense would add up to far less than what I would normally spend on a new pair.
So, what do you have planned for the weekend? We’re enjoying some glorious fall sunshine here and it looks like there’s more in the forecast for the next few days. Brad lucked out with a four day weekend so I’m hoping to tie some quality family time in between a good garage sale or two! We’ve been steady in the shop all week so I’ve got even more of an incentive/excuse to keep shopping. Have a great weekend 🙂
