FIRMOO to the rescue

To be honest, I wasn't in need of rescuing (as the title suggests). John Lennon-esque sunglasses aren't really a necessity for keeping me alive but they do help ease everyday struggles and, of course, they keep the sun out of my eyes which is pretty heroic!

Yesterday I arrived home to a little package waiting on my kitchen counter. Inside was a lovely case with map print all over it. Map print glasses case = instant brownie points in my eyes. So, I opened the glasses case and inside was JOHN LENNON. Ok, well not THE ACTUAL John Lennon... or any person for that matter. But yes, inside were some John Lennon-esque looking, super duper sun spectacles. Now if that isn't cool, then I don't know what is?

Anyway, the lovely people of Firmoo contacted me a while back asking if I'd like to be sent some glasses to try out, well I wasn't going to say no was I? They sell both prescription and fashion glasses/sunglasses on their website and so I decided to choose the Lennon lookalike sunglasses because they're considerably out of my comfort zone.

I have to admit, after I ordered the sunglasses I was pretty dubious as to whether I'd be that keen on them as I don't think sunglasses usually suit me. But fear not, it turns out I'm actually dead chuffed with the glasses as I have quite a small face and sometimes glasses can be WAY too big for my head, but these actually fit! HOORAH. All I need to do now is test them in the sun (but obviously asking for sun in this country is a big deal so it might be a while before they get tested out properly!)

Have any of you guys got some Lennon lookalikes? Would you wear them?

The Firmoo crew also mentioned to me that you guys can have a free pair of glasses too! All you need to do is go on their website, choose the ones you want and follow the instructions to claim your free pair. Pretty cool huh?


  1. They look great! I have quite a small face too so sunglasses shopping is a nightmare... I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to try the John Lennons but they look great on you :)
    Also I'm looking forward to picking out a free pair of glasses, thank you to you and Firmoo!
