Foggy Helsinki & Firmoo aviator glasses

Helsinki, -9 degrees

Living without faith is like driving in a fog.

Fog. There's something widely exciting about it, maybe because it's a little bit scary. When I was little I used to call foggy weather "being inside a milk glass". This Saturday morning Helsinki woke up to an enchanting fog that has been lurking around ever since. It's funny how it almost felt like it was creeping up on me when I quickly visited the city center today with my boyfriend. I've always been fascinated with fogs since I like to play mind games with myself while looking into a fog and imagine that somebody appears from it. Helsinki has been hit by a fog because we are expecting thew, warmer weather that is. In fact, it might be that we'll welcome the new year with plus degrees.

Recently I, like many other bloggers that I follow, was lucky enough to receive a stunning pair of glasses from Firmoo. I got to choose the model myself and the ones I've chosen are unlike any other pair I own - they are of a fun, classic and trendy aviator model!

Here's their description:
This full frame eyeglasses of the classic aviator style, never go out of fashion. The frame is perfectly constructed out of strong metal material, coping with long-term wear. The lens shape is almost around. These big frames are compatible with both single vision and progressive lenses. The arms have spring hinges, which helps to add extra comfort when wearing it. Total weight is about 28 grams with basic lenses.


I chose the silver ones since my regular reading glasses are black. You can see them in this blog post.

For those of you who don't know Firmoo, it is a company that focuses on fashionable and affordable glasses. Firmoo.com is the world's most popular online eyeglasses store. They have both prescription and fashion glasses. The styles are diverse, beautiful and of good quality.

What is more, all Firmoo's new customers are able to get their First Pair Free glasses only paying for shipping. Therefore, Firmoo has gained a solid reputation and trust from almost 500,000+ fans on Facebook.


Glasses aren't just for people like me with vision problems. Since I don't need to use glasses all the time, only when I'm reading for a longer period of time or when I'm on my computer, I like to have fashion glasses as well. That is why I chose this pair without any prescription. Fashion glasses are a great accessory! Actually when I wore my prescription glasses for the first time to work, many of my colleagues asked me if I really needed them or if they were just an esthetical accessory.

The reason why I chose to co-operate with Firmoo was that I appreciated the fact that it wanted an objective and real review on its services and glasses.

So here are my unbiased, and honest likes and dislikes about Firmoo's product & services:

+ the glasses are stunning, even more than I expected
+ the product description corresponds with the product
+ the eyeglass case is nicely designed and handy and I liked the fact that Firmoo offered a lens cleaning cloth
+ Firmoo has a great customer service which replies quickly and friendly to emails
 - I had problems with filling in the order form since it didn't clearly say which parts of the order form were mandatory
- I prefer getting prescription glasses from an optician that I can personally meet so that I can first check my eyesight
- I had problems with the shipping since the first time the glasses were sent to me, they got stuck in the customs and I would have had to pay to get them out. However, once I contacted the customer service, I got the glasses shipped again, this time there were delivered directly to my workplace which was very convenient.


What have you been up to this weekend?
