About California Blooms Eco-Friendly Roses:

California Blooms roses are grown exclusively on one of the most highly-decorated and world-renowned farms of hydroponic roses.  Their growing philosophy and techniques focus on the art and hands-on experimentation of optimum growing, rather than producing mass quantities of generic roses. The family-owned farm has grown varietal roses for over seven generations, and utilizes eco-friendly methods that drastically reduce the demand for energy and water consumption (Click here for further information on the eco-friendly growing methods – http://www.californiablooms.com/eco-friendly-growing-practices.html).

stillblonde3 smallChief Blonde Remarks: 12 beautiful roses were delivered to my home from CaliforniaBlooms.com.  I had great fun taking them out of the uber-cool HUGE box that they came in.  They were a lovely ???? color–(Shh, I’m not  telling as I want you to watch the video to see them!)  Expertly packed in a raffia packing, secured into place, and backed by a coolpak,  was the way to ensure their safe and expert delivery.  I just trimmed them a bit, popped them into the vase and VOILA, instant Happiness!  I really liked the fact that you can order from California Blooms online at their website OR  use their iPhone app. PLUS New iPhone App users save 20% off their first order. COOL!  I also was amazed by the variety of colors that I could choose from including:  Red, Pink, Lavender, Orange, Yellow, White, Peach, Green or Mixed!

Cinzia Designs Sunglass, 2010 Mother’s Day Gift Guide–Women over 45

[ 2 ] April 27, 2010 |

Still Blonde after all these YEARS presents Cinzia! Ends May 4  CONTEST CLOSED–Winner’s initials are MH .  

Cinzia Designs

Our giveaway today is from Cinzia, these fabulous “Polish” sunglasses retailing at $150.00!

Offering modern moms the most up-to-date trends in eyewear for  2010, Cinzia has an entire new line of reading glasses, sun wear, eyewear necklaces and cases. In addition, this season, Cinzia has expanded their line to include new lifestyle accessories such as watches, scaves and chic handbags to provide women with more fabulous options when accessorizing their look.

Chief Blonde’s Remarks:  I was sent the Trendies Sunreaders Pocket Rectangles and Trendies Pocket Ovals by Cinzia.  These awesome little fold-able and collapsible sunglasses and glasses are actually readers for those of us over 45 whose eyes are shot slightly declining.  With powers that cover a wide range (1.25–3.00) and an array of colors, these fantastic little glasses will be your go-to glasses.  The case that they fold up into is less than 2″ x 3″–that’s smaller than a school picture.  Very impressed by these glasses, the company, the website, the variety, the styles, the colors, and the fun element.  Highest recommendation! The glasses retail for $24.00 on the trendies by Cinzia site.

 

The Scoop:
Cinzia Designs was founded in 2002 . A true visionary in the eyewear industry, the founder is passionate about creating statement-making, unconventional, avant-garde readers, sunwear, and accessories to express one’s personal style.

Presenting two distinctly different collections: Cinzia and Trendies by Cinzia. Found in boutiques and optical dispensaries around the world, all Cinzia pieces are made to mix-and-match, giving the wearer endless options to create a look to suit every whim and every wardrobe.
