Firmoo Eyeglasses Review

Wow, hello November, you got here fast! So here we are full into the month of November, and for me, things have been going really well. One major boost for this month has been a new pair of eyeglasses. Recently I had the opportunity to work with I love this company, They are by far the best company I've ordered glasses from. They have great promotions that constantly run. They can be seen in addition to their top picks right from their home page! Now, this isn't my first time working with them. About two years ago (or so) they reached out to me to try out a pair of glasses and write a review. You can see that review here. When they reached out to me a second time, I jumped on the opportunity right away. I had such a wonder experience with them the first time, I couldn't wait the second time around! This time, I ordered frame number SF1342 in Tortoise. They are a very beautifully crafted classic frame style.

aren't they beautiful?!
Like I said, I ordered these frames in Tortoise, but that color is not currently available. But Firmoo is constantly updating the glasses they have in stock. You should definitely take a look at their Daily New page where you can find new arrivals literally every day. Below I'll show you guys what they look like, and the packaging, and I'll also share my video review too!

 Is this not the cutest packaging?!

gorgeous frames offers so many different styles of glasses and sunglasses, I hope you will check them out. If you have never ordered from them before, guess what!? By visiting their 15% off page you can save 15 percent on any frames on the entire website. That's an amazing deal if you ask me! I hope you guys enjoyed reading (and listening) to what I have to say! And hopefully you'll visit Firmoo's website and save some money on some great frames!

Nerdy love to ya!

Fall 2015 Hair Colors

The weather is getting chilly, the leaves are changing beautiful yellows, reds and orange, and the time has come to make a big decision: are you going to color your hair? Yeah yeah, it may seem like kind of a silly question to some, but I have been asking myself what will I do. Currently my hair is a bright mixture of blonde highlights. Originally I decided to  keep my hair light even though fall is here. As the time goes by, occasionally I get a wild idea for change. That often spirals from a hair cut, extensions, various hairstyles, then back to hair color. I like my hair black, but I'm not totally sure I want to go that drastic. I may, but I'm not sure (I'm super indecisive so I go back and forth like a million times). But my hair hasn't been a shade of red in years, should I choose some form of red? I have no idea. So I decided to do a little research. What hair colors are trending for fall.

I've chosen my top three hair colors below of trending hair colors for this fall. They are in no particular order, and were compiled from both Harpers Bazaar's list, and Elle's.

1) Rust/Copper- Like I said above, my hair hasn't been any shade of red for years. When I took a look at this color, I really find it complimentary to olive and darker skin. Eva Mendez and Rihanna both look amazing with this hair color. See? It looks amazing on darker skin tones!

 Both Photos are used from Harpers Bazaar

2) Bronde- I love word combos like this, they're so funny. Bronde is a combination of brown and blonde throughout, and it looks pretty good. It's very subtle, and I like that. It seems like a very versatile way of adding highlights and low lights, and can be done so many different ways, it won't look 'cookie cutter'. It looks like a great way of adding some dimension in your hair without it being a dramatic change.

3) Monochrome Licorice- This is where I start wanting to go jet black. I'm really digging this single shade hair color! When I color my hair black, it always turns out in a flat single tone. I like it, and I'm glad to see that this is now a thing. This shade is gorgeous especially as a short/medium bob. Take a look at this photo:

Is that not gorgeous? I love how deep, dark and sleep it looks. Perhaps a call back from my goth days in high school (I know I'm not the only one...). Of course for me to achieve a look like this, I would not only have to color my hair black, but also get my hair straightened. And that is a mess I do not want to deal with anytime soon. Maybe a wig will suffice for me.

The rest of the week I will be seriously thinking about what I will do. I can't quite make up my mind! Monday I will be starting a new job, so I would like to have something figured out by then. We'll see how that goes. Wish me luck in figuring this out, I sure as hell need it!

Nerdy love to ya!

Why aren't you watching American Horror Story?

You totally should be. Kicking off with the first episode in season five, why not jump in now? The new season, titled American Horror Story Hotel, is centered around a (you guessed it) hotel. Hotels are extremely creepy, even the most modern ones. But the Hotel Cortez bumps the creep factor way beyond anything I've ever seen in person. Before getting into the meat and potatoes, watch the trailer:

If that doesn't get your blood pumping, have someone check for a pulse. This season (like seasons past) brings many familiar faces drawing from its previous four seasons. We see Sarah Paulson, Dennis O'hare, Matt Bomer, Wes Bentley, and Kathy Bates prominently, but of course other faces we've grown to love (or hate) in the past will surely show up within the season. We were also treated to Lady Gaga's addition to this amazing cast. There's been no secret that Lady Gaga would be a huge part of this season, especially after finding out Jessica Lang would not be continuing with AHS. Replacing Jessica Lang with Lady Gaga was a mixture of shock, intrigue, and annoyance for many people I'm sure, but I'm completely biased. I've loved her and her music since she started.

--I'm going to try not to spoil anything!--

From the start, the premiere episode of American Horror Story Hotel draws you in with a strong, eerie intro. Two female Swedish tourists arrive at their hotel in the hopes of seeing sights at Universal Studios. Unfortunately, they discover not only that their hotel is pretty far from where they wanted to be (ten miles away), but they felt extremely uneasy once inside. One of the women commented that the hotel was silent like a tomb. After a failed attempt to get a refund on their reservation, they decided to stay the night anyway. Their uneasiness festered into fear when they detected a strange, foul smell in their room. available there. Fear turns to panic as the source of the smell is found to be coming from the bed. Where there is a very prominent. large suture in the mattress. The two women rip the mattress open, and of course something comes out of it. A person, of sorts I guess you could say. They are moved to room 64 for the remainder of the night. This is a very special room, in fact it becomes more or less a focal point for the show. Well at least the first episode at least. Talk about a killer opening scene, huh!?

Aside from that spoiler I gave away (notably right after saying I would try not to) I wont blow anything else. But I will say that the opening scene sets the tone for a wild ride of an episode! Your adrenaline starts pumping and never stops unless there is a commercial break. Between shock, awe, cringing, and excitement, this first episode is a roller coaster of an episode. As always, American Horror Story starts with a bang and I already know it will continue the entire season as strongly as it started. If you haven't seen the first episode of season five I urge you to give it a watch. You can catch AHS: Hotel on FX every Wednesday at 10(eastern time). Check it out, and let me know what you guys think!

Nerdy love to ya!

Texas Blues

In all the excitement  before our move to Massachusetts, now that we're here the feeling has shifted. Drastically. When we were still in Texas, I couldn't wait to leave. I wanted to get out of there so fast, I never thought I would actually miss it. I mean, who would miss triple digit heat, right? Well, this gal for one. It's cold here. Like, I'm always cold and it's only fall! I know, I know, the beautiful colors of the leaves changing is so nice compared to the brown dead leaves that fall in Texas. But I miss more than just the warmth.

I guess I miss the sense of security too. I'm a creature of habit, its really bad. I will go to the same restaurant ten times, and get the same thing because that's what I'm used to getting there. That doesn't mean I'm afraid to try something else, I just like routine. I like predictability. In Texas, I knew what to expect from the weather. I knew what my neighborhood was like. I knew my sons school, I knew when traffic would be bad what days/where, and I knew how to get around. I know that part of moving to a new place is getting acclimated to your new surroundings, but man, this is just not cool right now! I think I would be more 'okay' with it if I actually liked it here. Maybe its me being grumpy and missing Texas, but I really don't see myself in the east like this. I'm a southern/country girl through and through. I like to talk, and I can be friendly (occasionally), but here, no one wants to talk, no one is friendly. To be brutally honest, everyone here is an asshole. Even my husband who is from New York, was taken aback by how rude people are here. It's really been a shock!

I'm really hoping that after a few more weeks I can get acclimated to life here before the snow comes this winter. I don't like snow or ice, so when that times comes, I will be in a whole different kind of panic and fear. Send me good ju ju y'all, I surely need it!

Nerdy love to ya!
