Hey Beauties,

If you have been following my blog for a while, you will know that I am a prescriptive eye glasses wearer. Being that some days I don't like to have on my contacts and be free from eyes feeling very dry, I opt for my eyeglasses.

Firmoo.com is the world most popular eyeglasses online store. They provide you with different styles, colors and type of eyeglasses for your everyday needs. From fashionable to professional type eyeglasses for men, women and kids.... yes kids!! And guess what beauties......First pair of glasses are FREE to new customers. Doesn't get any better than that huh, but wait.... The eyeglasses prices range from below ... waits, waits, waits................. $10.
Now prescriptive glasses is very pricey for me being that I love to change my style of eyewear and with that price range for fashionable, trendy prescriptive eyeglasses, I can own several different pairs and still don't break the bank.

Now come on beauties, if you are an eyeglasses wearer prescriptive or not, you better head on over to Firmoo website with their low price. With the same price of buying 8 pairs of Firmoo.com eyewear you definitely beat buying 1 pair at local mortar and brick store.
Nevertheless Firmoo.com provides a easy to use Virtual Try On to make sure the eyewear fits your face.

Here is a pic of my new eyewear (prescriptive) from Firmoo.com

Comes with a case and pouch with the eyewear company's logo on it
Also comes with a eyewear cloth cleaner (not pictured)

Be sure to be a fan of their Facebook page to see more reviews and also giveaways. Get your vision and fashion the Firmoo way

Note: This product was sent to me free for review purposes and I am not affiliated with the company, nor have I been paid for my review. My review contains opinions that are solely my own. My beauties/subscribers are my priority and my recommendation of product(s) will never be altered because it was given to me free.

FOTD: Inspired Erica Dixon LAHHATL Reunion Makeup Look

Hello Beauties,

If you aren't tuned into Monday nights reality TV, well your just missing out. I love a great drama movie but a dramatic TV show is even better nowadays. Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta has come to a first season end and I have enjoyed every episode of it. My favorite characters are: K Michelle, Erica, Scrappy and let me just say Stevie J cause without him the show would not be something to talk about or watch, even though I don't condone his behavior but that's another story itself. Now the ladies looked lovely with their makeup and hair for the reunion show... oh snaps... minus Buckeey with that ridiculous hairstyle O_o 
Erica Dixon makeup look had me gasping because as you know it almost Fall season and she was rocking that dark purple lip and contoured like no other... now that was a "beat face". Being that her look was all that, I had to recreate and I can't wait to recreate it again and rock it out on the town one of these nights. I really enjoyed recreating it so check out my 'inspired' version.

I even tried the hair but I don't know how to get the swoop right so, I will leave the hair to the pros. Nevertheless I am in no way a look a like of Erica, it is an inspired version of her look. Now I attempted a video tutorial for this look but I was so out of frame, so it doesn't make any sense to post that video.
Btw I am loving the lip color, I will be rocking lots of purple lips this Fall... beware!!

Who from the LAHHATL: Reunion show makeup look will I be recreating next???? ..... take a guess!!

Be Beautiful & be smart!!
