Need Glasses?

*Thanks to Firmoo for sponsoring today's post!*

Glasses are something I see on a daily basic considering most of my family wears them. I think a pair of glasses can completely transform someone's look. I know seeing someone use different frames can often give off certain appearances that one may be looking to pull off.

A few weeks ago Firmoo reached out to me to try out a pair of glasses. Firmoo is the largest global online optical store. With tons and tons of different styles to choose from it is easy to spend a long time browsing through their site. I admit that I was a bit worried about doing this all over the internet, but the process was rather painless. 
The first thing you will need is your prescription, which my doctor was able to fax to me quickly. I then selected the frames which to me is the hardest part. Luckily they have them sorted into shapes to make it easier to narrow down the perfect ones. I chose a pair of rimless glasses to try out. Using my prescription I then entered all the information step by step. 

Once I reviewed the information I put it, I was good to go! Wow I couldn't believe that these glasses were under $50. I just couldn't wait to see them in person. I can say from experience that these are great quality glasses are are highly affordable. I plan on getting more members of my family a pair of glasses due to the great experience I had with these. 
As you can see the glasses came with a cleaning cloth, hard case, and a pouch. This service 100% worked for me! I just a few steps I was able to create and have the perfect pair of glasses in my hands. The prescription matches perfectly and these are just so stylish! 

If you are on the market for a new pair of glasses, I highly suggest you check out Firmoo! They have amazing deals on glasses that are simply gorgeous!

5 Handbag Essentials with U by Kotex

**Many thanks to U by Kotex and Walmart for sponsoring today's story!**

Living in a rather small town I depend on Walmart for all of my handbag essentials. Some items are beauty related, but some are a necessity for any woman.I seriously can't live without any of these items always being in my handbag. I depend on them to rescue me from all sorts of circumstances. 

Allergies often greatly affect me throughout the fall. I find my eyes are watery and itchy from allergies, and to combat this I use my Rohto Releif eye drops and Kleenex tissues. Something I find I always carry with me are U by Kotex CleanWear pads. For a limited time you are now able to get the U by Kotex along with a special bonus pack of Kleenex Slim packs. Being that I use both of these regularly I was so excited to see this! 

I personally love U by Kotex CleanWear pads for these reasons: They have new 3D Capture Core that draws in and locks away wetness, they are super soft and comfortable, they have unique shape that keeps everything secure and keeps it from bunching up, they are unscented with easy to open wrappers, and have super cute designs!
I also keep a container of Rimmel Stay Matte powder to keep my oil at bay. Living in the South the humidity and heat are pretty strong throughout most of the year. I find that I this helps keep my skin looking amazing through out the day. In addition, by drinking tons of coffee with fall flavors I find my lip gloss wears off more frequently. I depend on Walmart to get my favorite lip gloss from the Maybelline The Elixier in 060 Nude Illusion from the ColorSensational line. I find this keeps my lips looking spot on through out fall. 
All of these items slip easily into my makeup bag that goes into my I depend on Walmart for all of my handbag essentials. Not only can I find amazing low prices, but I find that it is super convenient being that I live in a small town. 

Also make sure you take advantage of the share and save opportunity. The more times you share on Twitter, Pinterest, or Facebook, the higher the coupon value! The offer includes three coupons for Kleenex ($0.50, $0.75, $1) and three for U by Kotex ($0.75, $1, $1.50)
