June #Random Pics

Welcome to my new monthly series, #Random. I always wanted my blog to be more than an OOTD because there's more to me than fashion.  I am an innovating, free-spirited individual who happens to be a bit of daredevil with a newly discovered affection for photography.

#Random is a collection of lifestyle, inspirational, and yes fashion photos that will showcase life behind Pumps & Studz. 

I hope you like it!

Yep, I am a prescription eyeglass wearer and have been for the last twenty years.  I wear my glasses when driving (at night) and watching TV which means its rare that you will ever come across pictures of me wearing them. A few months ago, Firmoo an online optical store that specializes in prescription glasses, asked if I would be willing to review their products and website. I found their request ironic considering the only type of glasses I wear on the blog is sunnies. Nevertheless, I was super excited to try their product and skeptical at the same time because I have never ordered prescription lenses via an online optical company.  

When Firmoo initially contacted me, my prescription was over two years old. I didn't want new glasses with an old prescription so when I was able to obtain my new prescription (five months later) I contacted Firmoo again. Tina, a Firmoo representative, emailed a promotional code for free prescription lenses within 24 hours. My eyeglass bundle would include a pair of single vision lenses, with anti-radiation & UV coating. 

The ordering process was rather simple.  To start, I created an account which Firmoo requires before placing your order.  Next, eye measurements were needed and Firmoo walks you through the process.   I entered my prescription information, selected a pair of glasses and pressed submit. A Firmoo representative contacted me within a few hours with some questions regarding my prescription, within two days my glasses were on their way. 

My glasses arrived approximately 16 days later (from China).  I opened the package and was a tad disappointed. The frames looked burgundy online yet in person they were so dark, they appeared black. This was my only negative experience with the company, but I chalked it up to color variations on different PCs (giving it the benefit of the doubt).

All things considered, Firmoo has definitely changed my mind about ordering from an online optical company.  The glasses fit perfectly and their customer service was impeccable!  My overall rating is a B! If you have never tried an online optical company, I would recommend you give Firmoo a try.  Average price for single lenses prescription glasses is $39.00 and the company is currently offering a 15% discount to new customers. My glasses are Firmoo's #F1013 and can be viewed here.

By the way, how do you like me in my new specs? ;)

Stay Fab, Lovelies!

A Jumpsuit, A Moto Jacket, And A Fashion Link Up

Welcome to Thursday Fashion Files with Jill at Doused in Pink and Carrie at Curly Crafty Mom! We are excited to have you here and would love to have you link up one of your latest outfits with us. We are always looking for Co-Hosts for Thursday Fashion Files.

I am showing a simple OOTD and linking up with the lovely ladies above. I apologize for the short post, but the weather has been rainy for about a month straight and of late, a bit nippy as well. During times like this (cold, foggy, and rainy) my ideal situation is to be confined to my bed, snuggled up in a huge comforter, nibbling on some snacks, and watching a marathon of SNAPPED.  

I know my outfit of the day seems more fitting for September instead of May, but after living in Denver for the last couple of years, I have learned to dress for the weather and not the season.  This look was all about comfort, blending a slouchy jumpsuit with a moto jacket and a pair of super high but extremely comfortable platform wedges.  I consider both pieces, a jumpsuit and a moto jacket, to be my wardrobe staples.  I own three black jumpsuits and each of them is distinctive styles and fit slightly different. This one pinches in the waist and the wider trouser legs balance out my inverted triangle body shape. The moto jacket can be considered my 'buy less choose well'  item for April. After viewing it for months and trying to decide if I needed another motorcycle jacket, I pounced on it when Ashley Stewart marked it down last month. The metallic panels on the front was the selling point for me because it sets it aside from just another moto jacket, don't you think?  

Until next time, Stay Fab!

Current Beauty Essentials & A Few More Things

The product junkie in me is back at it again sharing some of my spring essentials.
Not a beauty expert, but these products are certainly doing the trick for me.

1| Nars Illuminator in Super Orgasm | I mix it with moisturizer to give me a sun-kissed glow or use as a highlighter on my cheeks and nose.

2| Caviar Crème by Alterna | The best leave-in I have ever tried. It pops natural curls leaving them bouncy and soft but also works great as a heat primer. The end result is hair feeling like silk! 

3| Fresh Laundry by Clean | A crisp, light, and airy fragrance that smells just like fresh washed laundry without the harsh smell of a heavy detergent.  With names like Skin, Fresh Cotton, Air, Shower Fresh, and Clean, this brand has made me want to collect all of their clean smelling fragrances.

4| Melted Coral by Two Faced | Highly pigmented long wearing lip gloss. I love almost every shade by this brand but melted coral  is definitely one of my favorite shades for spring.

5| NYX Micro Brow Pencil| I recently discovered that this product is the perfect dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hill Brow Wiz yet cost half the price! 

6| OPI Alpine Snow | The holy grail of white nail polish. It’s a matte color that is extremely white, bold, and works great alone or for French manicures.
