Market Your Biz and Giveaways #60 + Firmoo Eyeglasses Review

Welcome to Market Your Biz and Giveaways, my dear friends! Come on in and link up your family-friendly online businesses and giveaways. It has been long said that businesses are the lifeblood of the economy. Not only that, businesses really fuel the economy. This blog party, solely dedicated to promoting businesses and giveaways, is my way of giving back to the community so welcome to Market Your Biz & Giveaways!

Featured Biz

Our featured biz today is Firmoo, the global online optical store.

Here's my hubby wearing his prescription eyeglasses from Firmoo. Why the lenses look green, I have no idea at first, but I can just speculate that it's the reflection of his shirt.


He chose the unisex full frame plastic eyeglasses model #CSMY8023 in color black. As soon as we received it, he preferred wearing it over the prescription eyeglasses that we spent money 10 times more from his optometrist.


Firmoo, the most popular online optical store, provides a large quantity of high-quality and fashionable eyewear at the most affordable prices. With years of experience, Firmoo has gained a solid reputation and trust within 470,000 fans on Facebook. Firmoo has launched a Free for New Buyer program for the first-time buyers. The goal of this program is to make new buyers to experience Firmoo’s quality products & good service as well as to help the people with low income to correct their vision problems. Plus, it’s easy to order and the delivery is pretty fast! Want to have a try? Just go to http://www.firmoo.com/free-glasses.html and get your FREE eyewear!

Note: We received the pair of eyeglasses from my husband for free in exchange of featuring Firmoo. I had a pleasant experience placing the order because they were friendly and courteous. In addition to this, shipping was quick - they mailed it on July 23rd, and I received it on July 27th, considering this originated from China. Am I going to order from them again? Definitely!

Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop #70

I really appreciate your sweet and thoughtful comments about the deaths in my husband's family, my dear friends. THANK YOU for offering those condolences and comforting words. During the travel back home, I had my soul-searching period and was reminded that our lives here on earth is really short compared to the eternities to come, and since it's short, might as well live life to the fullest and focus on things that have everlasting impact. Great career with a great pay is important but not as important as the time well-spent with the family. Having a comfortable retirement account is cool, but not as important as life spent in the service of others. Being popular sounds awesome but not as awesome as living a life with integrity and honor. Overall, the funeral hammered into my consciousness to live my day as if it's my last and to savor every moment of it with the most important people in my life, and that's my family. How about you? Do you shun attending funerals or do you get something profound out of it?

Favorite Blog

Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop #69

Thank you for joining us this week, my dear friends!

We just came back from attending a relative's funeral so it's a weekend of reflection for me. While on our way to the funeral, we heard that another relative in the Philippines passed away, too. Nothing much to share since death makes me contemplate my existence here on earth, and wonder if I have done all what I'm supposed to do when my time comes. I'll take this opportunity to contemplate how I stack up with my goals and what God requires of me so til next week's CBPH party, my friends.

Favorite Blog

Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop #68

Welcome to our CBPH, my dear friends!

Princess One loves cooking and trying out recipes that catch her fancy. Now that the Orange County Fair is in full swing, we'll get to eat again totally fried foods like Totally Fried Klondike bars and Totally Fried Twinkies. One thing I don't have the heart to try yet is their chocolate-covered bacon but I'm pretty much open to try their Totally Fried Kool-Aid.

(Here's a picture taken of last year's Fair)

I guess these novel and specialty foods have been conceived by people, who when they were young, had the freedom to experiment in the kitchen. So, as my way of supporting Princess One's lofty goal of becoming a singing chef, I let her come up with creative recipes just like her cheddar wurst with whipped cream, or bacon with whipped cream, even hotdog with whipped cream yesterday. Who knows, these ideas might become sensational recipes, not just in the OC fair, but even in the Food Network :) Did you or any family member have that signature recipe that you're totally proud of?

Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop #67

Welcome to our weekly date, my dear friends! Thanks for coming :)

This week went by quickly because my mother is on vacation right now so we are not spoiled anymore. Everybody in the home, even Princess Two, is pitching in the household chores. Thank goodness we had the 4th of July as a holiday so we got to do the laundry and vacuum our bedrooms.

Speaking of 4th of July, we got the chance to light up some fireworks. We are lucky to live in a city that still allows residents to light up the legal ones. Our HOA (Homeowners Association) prohibits us from lighting up fireworks but being a Filipino at heart who grew up with firecrackers every New Year, I encouraged everyone to go to the major street close to our home to make some lights and noise. The girls love it! How about you? Did you get to light up some fireworks? Favorite Blog
