Just Call Me Clark Kent: A Sponsored Post

June 3, 2014 | by Jocie (email) |

Kim and I received free glasses in exchange for this post but opinions and thoughts are 100% mine…as if anyone could shut me up. lol.


I know you don’t see many pix of me on the blog. Usually that’s because I’m behind the camera. But the pictures you do see, I am wearing contacts. I try to pretty myself up, put on a little makeup, maybe even shower if I’m going to have my picture taken, let alone put on the blog. The reality is, that I don’t love wearing contacts and 90% of the time I wear glasses! Who knew?!

Are you confused? Yes, its still me. I’m just wearing glasses. Maybe I’m really superwoman. Last year, at Haven, I saw a bloggy buddy who has glasses on her blog picture and she wasn’t wearing them in person. I was like, “I’m sorry, who are you?” Pardon me, while I hate myself and hide in shame. So, in case you ever see me in person, I will likely be wearing glasses and it’s still me.


Anyway, last month I heard about Firmoo, an online prescription eyeglasses store and they agreed to send both me and Kim some glasses!! I was a little worried about getting glasses online. I mean, how are you supposed to know which glasses look good on you or fit your face? What if they are too wide or too tiny? Well, Firmoo has a virtual try-on system. Again, I was super skeptical, which in part may have been because I took and used a really unflattering picture of myself. After correcting that it was really fun trying glasses on virtually, without having to get a babysitter or constantly tell my kids, “Stop touching that!”

I decided since the glasses were free, I was going to go a bit funkier than I would have otherwise. What do you think? Am I too old for the hipster craze? Is that allowed in your thirties? So here’s a close up of my frames – #F02:


Kim, meanwhile loves her some purple. And she looks super cute in it (#F032).

Kim Firmoo Glasses


While we got these glasses for free, Firmoo seeks really cheap…I mean affordable glasses. I mean seriously. Even with insurance, I normally pay WAY more. And they did a great job getting my prescription correct. I hope you go check ’em out and tell them we sent you!

What do you think? Where do you get your glasses deals?

As always, thanks for reading!

  1. Cute! I love both pairs! JM wears glasses 90% of the time too, which isn’t my favorite because his eyes are super bright blue when they’re not hidden behind glasses. But he prefers them over contacts!

  2. I hate contacts so I am a glasses girl, too {when I remember to wear them}. LOVE your sassy frames!

    I LOVE your glasses! So cute and trendy. I can’t believe you go them online and they are so perfect for you! I didn’t realize you could try them on “virtually”… oh my goodness, can you imagine “D” in a shop full of glasses frames!?

    I think that moment at Haven was one of my favorites! You look super awesome in your new glasses. I’ve had the same ones for years, maybe it’s time for an upgrade!
