My Birthday Giveaway: Win A Pair of Sunglasses! (CLOSED)


Hi everyone, it's my birthday week! And Firmoo, an online leader in quality eyewear, was nice enough to sponsor my first ever giveaway!

I discovered Firmoo when I recently had an eye problem caused by stress and long hours. Because I had to rest my eyes and use drops containing steroids, my ophthalmologist prohibited me from wearing contact lenses. I didn't know what to do because we had a couple of out-of-town trips coming up and under no circumstances will I wear prescription glasses on the beach. So I went from optical shop to optical shop to find out if they can make my fashion sunnies into prescription ones. Unfortunately, they could only offer me small prescription sunglasses or the transition ones that older people use. Obviously, both were not my style. And that's when I found out about Firmoo.

Who would have thought this pair of sunnies could also be converted into prescription ones?

But enough of my story. I can tell you about it in another post :) Let's get on with my birthday giveaway!

The Prize
2 pairs of Firmoo sunnies/glasses of your choice
(w/ free shipping anywhere in the world)

This giveaway is open to both male and female readers :)

There are a lot of other styles in Firmoo's website but these are my favorites.

I will pick 2 winners for this giveaway who will receive a pair of Firmoo sunglasses/glasses each. But since Firmoo is feeling generous, we will be giving away extra prizes to be announced at the end of this contest. All I can say is that the more people who join, the more prizes will be given away. So tell your friends about this little giveaway for more chances of winning a prize.

*Originally, there were only supposed to be 2 winners for this contest.  But because a lot of readers joined, Firmoo offered to give another reader a pair of glasses/sunglasses of her choice (but this time the winner has to shoulder the shipping costs) and a couple of $$ vouchers as consolation prizes.

How to Claim Your Prize

For the 3 winners of the glasses/sunglasses:
Please wait for Firmoo's email but in the meantime, you can browse their website and choose the style that you like :)

For the readers who won consolation prizes:
I will be sending you instructions via email as to how you can use your $$ voucher.


Thank you all for joining!  Please check out my newest giveaway/contest sponsored by Kotex.  This time, the first 5 'Joei & Me' readers who complete all requirements will AUTOMATICALLY get a prize!  As of June 26, there are still prizes up for grabs as the ones who commented on that giveaway post have not really completed all requirements.  So go, go, go!
