Summer Time Fun and Eye Protection with Unisex Full Frame Sunglasses Firmoo #Review

I have a chronic migraine ever since I was a teen. Too loud of a noise, strong odors like cigarette smoke, and even the sunlight triggers my migraine. It is so hard to enjoy the warm summer days if I don't have an eye protection because I will always end up with a migraine. To avoid that problem, having a pair of sunglasses is very important for me. This year, I got this unisex full frame sunglasses from Firmoo.  
You can find current promos and top picks by visiting  What I like is that, you can customize your  glasses according to your eye vision need, meaning you can  order the right fit and prescription by just following the instructions online.  I received this last week and thought of trying them first for a week before writing the review so I am sure how it really  goes.  It did not disappoint!
The sunglasses came with a beautiful case, a cleaning fabric, and a small tool that you can use if you have to adjust the frame.  You can check out the daily new  section or page where frames are updated everyday.  They have plenty of selection.
This specific sunglasses  can be upgraded into a prescription sunglasses if you wish.  I was going to do that but the added cost hindered me from doing it.  I like the fact that they send you this small device too.  It's a handy and useful thing to have especially if you wear glasses because you will have something to use just in case your glasses need  readjustment.  
I like the  global theme design of the  case.  You can look at the world though it.
Even my husband find it very cool.
This sunglasses came in the right time.  We will be going for a road trip next month and go to the beach so this would be put in use for sure.
If you are planning to buy a new pair of sunglasses or prescription glasses, you can check out Firmoo and enjoy a  15% off discount  for  new customers,  you can use coupon code on frames site wide.  Summer time fun is  not  complete without an eye protection so make sure  to have a pair of sunglasses before you head out to the beach or enjoy a mountain trail.

I know I got this for myself but someone wants it too!  She said, it fits her perfectly so yeah, she might end up owning it,  lol.  It's okay though because I still have my old pair here at home.

Long Distance Walking and Running

I have been thinking of   jogging from our place to my father-in-law's place.  That's about 8.2 miles  total  from where we live and back.  So on May 21, I finally conquered my fear of going alone jogging.  My husband told me  not to go alone because the path includes the place where some of the   listed sex offenders live here in the city.  During my first 5-minute jog, my mind is battling whether or not to go ahead with my plan but  despite my fear, I went anyway.
Going down the Cove Road Hill is  a bit scary because there are parts where  there is no side walk.  I  was praying  to God to give me enough strength and  protect me from being hit by  cars.  It's a very busy roads where cars fly by that's why my husband was scared for me to go that way.  Going up Marland Heights Hill was the toughest part because it's a steep hill to walk.  When I arrived at Dad's house, he was still in bed so I made him some breakfast, unfortunately, he chose to drink   whisky instead of eating. Here was our conversation:

Me:  "You should not drink without food in your stomach Dad."
Dad:  "Oh an old buzzard like me doesn't need to eat, I need a drink that's all I want to do."
Me:  "It's not good for you to be drinking because if you fall, you might break your hip or break a bone".
Dad: "You remind me of my daughter-in-law, Rose.  Do you know Rose?"
Me: "It is me  Dad"
Dad: "You are not Rose."
Realizing that he doesn't recognize me anymore, I  just went along with the flow and continue with out conversation.
Dad:  "Rose is such a good girl, I love her"
Me: (Choking this time).  I am so  please to hear that Dad.

I texted my husband after I  came back home and he could not believe I did it.  I did not text him before I went because I know he would not let me go alone.  
The next day, May 22, he was off from work and I encouraged him to join  me  so that he would see that it is not as dangerous as he thought it would be.  He was skeptical because he knows how car fly by on Cove Hill but I convinced him to go.  Photo was taken in downtown Weirton.
He did not want to  go up the Marland Heights Road  so he showed me the  way where he used to  climb when he was growing up.  It was a very neat pathway.  While we were  climbing, he was telling me stories about his childhood which made the journey very special for me and him.
The path led to the golf course area so we have to  walk back to my father's in law's house.  I must admit, it was easier although a  bit longer.  The presence of the trees makes it more enjoyable to  hike plus I got a bonus, my husband's stories about his  childhood memories.
Dad 's memory  is not as sharp  anymore compared to last year so he sometimes forget who we are.  He kept telling my husband that a girl came by the day before and she made herself comfortable around the house.  She was telling us about  my visit but he can't remember that it was me.
After an hour of visiting Dad, we went back home.  We  chose to hike up Greenbrier Road instead of going back to Cove Road.  I think my husband regretted the idea since it was harder to hike the steep road  compared to Cove road, however, it was more relaxing because it  has so many trees to see.
Since we took different paths from my  walk the previous day, our miles went from 8.2 to 9 miles.  I was very surprised that I was able to do that walk again.  I thought for sure I will be so sore  the next day but I think the pain meds I took before going to bed that night helped me.  
I did one more trip alone on May 27th.  My sister-in-law and nephew Lee were there at Dad's when I arrived.  My sister-in-law and I made  Dad and Lee some breakfast.  After staying   a little bit, I head back home.
We did some more long walks and running after this.  I will post about separately since we  took our children with us.  I started them with just  a little over two miles one day and then  when my husband was off again, we  took them to a 9-mile walk.  Tune in and find out  how they did.

Antique Fashion

My eyes were literally  huge  when I  went inside  Brokke County Historial MUseum, they have so many   antiques there including farm tools, clothing, different emorabilias, and yes fashion from way  back then.  
 You see the bridal gown on the corner?
 It's awesome to see  the style  way back then  and how it changed over the years.
 I love this lamp, it is so pretty!
What I love about  our visit themost was the fact that we were the only ones there.  It was a scheduled  interview fr my husband in the book that they are making for Veterans so we had all the time to explore the place.  The people in-charged there was very nice  to let us take pictures.  MOst museums doesn't alow photographs.  Our little museum here in Weirton doesn't allow any photos at all.

Traveling with June BeautyBox5's Bon Voyage #Review

We are set to  go on our road trip next month and I couldn't be happier to receive my June box from Beauty Box 5.  The box includes a body was from Herbal Essences Urban Decay perversion mascara, nail polish, micellar cleansing water, and rotational eye shadow.
Herbal Essences is one of the brands I trust.  We always buy their hair care line of products but I have yet to try this body wash.  This would be essential to our travel next month so I am saving this just for that.
I was bummed out seeing this LOL or lots of love eye shadow shattered into pieces.  I like the shades in it but unfortunately it got messed up during the delivery.  

One  color was a total  loss because it was completely  tore up.
I did not  pitched it because I like the colors of the rest of it so I just brush off the loose  ones.
I don't know why I care to put an eye make up  anyway because I wear an eye glasses lol.  It is just something that you feel good about when you have  it.  I mean I rarely wear an eye make up, just on few occasion.  It's good to have  them  around just in case.
You can dominate your lashes with this  Urban Decay Perversion.  It's bigger, blacker, and badder.  Before I became a blogger, I have no idea how to put mascara on.  I just recently appreciate  it's beauty especially that  my eye lashes  are short.  Mascara  makes it  look better.
Now this nail polish, I really love.  The  color is so perfect for summer.  It reminds me of the beautiful colors of rubber bands that I used to play with when I was a kid.  Those neon colors  are embedded in my head lol.

I am not good in applying nail polish  so it did not do any justice to this awesome UK based brand.
