The Chief Blonde’s Husband has reviewed the GO! Man Kit–head here to read his review.  Here’s an excerpt from his review:

Now that I am 51, my skin has gone from oily to dry.  I occasionally show signs of redness  and rosacea.  I really liked the moisturizer compared to others I have tried, it doesn’t have a strong fragrance so I don’t feel “Girly” wearing it and it doesn’t irritate my wife who is very fragrance sensitive.  Another reason I like the moisturizer is that it has such a high SPF. With all the yard work I do in the spring, I value this component as my family tends toward skin cancer.  I used the Skin Cleanser each day in the shower…it wasn’t complicated to use.  …I felt like the Night Revitalizer was a product I never would have tried if it wasn’t in the kit…but it was my favorite.  READ THE REST OF THE GO!

Luau of Love, Luau Bridal Shower Themed Party Decorations

Luau Bridal Shower Decorations and Food

The Chief Blonde threw a Luau of Love Party for her Wonderful Niece’s Bridal Shower

Luau of Love Luau Bridal Shower Party Decorations

This 8 foot banner was great for setting the party theme ( Oriental Trading $19.99 similar).

Luau themed parties are too much fun!  You can find decorations all throughout the year, even in dollar stores.  Oriental Trading has a plethora of choices, as do most dollar and party stores.

Luau of Love Bridal Shower Party Decorations

A basket of leis (50/$19.99 similar ) and flower hair clips (12/$5.99) sets ready for guests on the entry table.

This party was thrown in January, so all the women had a great time getting out their summer Hawaiian clothes and forgetting about the snow outside!  It was a bright lovely day outside but only about 10 degrees!  So all the warmth needed to be inside at the party.

Simple luau inspired napkins ($1.00/package)  provide an inexpensive table decoration, coupled with brightly colored  shells (sold by the bag), and accordion Luau decorations (12/$5.99).

It took awhile to transform the house, but once we were done the 27 guests found the party scene to be a great diversion from the cold outside!

A fireplace is quickly transformed with the help of some bright garland!

Large spaces serve as a great backdrop for garlands and windsocks.  Pictures acted as backdrops for tiki masks. Even the dolls get into the party fun!

Whether it’s Christmas or a luau, a stairway always provides a great backdrop!

Any space can become an instant tiki bar with the addition of a parrot and some garland hung vertically.

Guest can join into the theme by providing them with leis and flower hair clips. On the party invitation, encourage them to wear Hawaiian shirts.   

The Luau bridal shower theme can work anytime of year and transforms to any type of party.  Remember to keep your colors loud and bright.  Food should be tropical and colorful.

Will you be planning a Luau Bridal Shower? People love the crazy music, games, and colors!

I’m not trying to flash you in this picture, I’m just trying to show off the pretty Donna Karan Pointelle Knit.  FYI–In knitting, pointelle is a knitting pattern which creates an openwork design when it is completed–don’t worry, I had to look it up too!

S’well Water Bottle Review

[ 493 ] March 30, 2011 |

Thinking about the perfect gift for 

Grads , Dads, and Moms on Father’s Day? Mother’s Day? Easter?

s'well bottle

S’well bottles are the answer! Merging fashion, a charitable cause, and functionality, S’well is a perfect gift for active men, teens, and moms on the go! Women over 45 will have a riot trying to decide which color to buy for themselves, their guys, their teens, or their little ones!  S’well bottle represents a new advancement in metal water bottle insulation, with its ability to keep cold beverages cold and hot ones hot longer. The bottles are stainless steel and are virtually unbreakable, creating a bottle worthy of consumers’ mobile lifestyles. The sleek design makes it easy to shop for the great men in your life. The insulation of the s’well water bottle review means the bottle doesn’t sweat, so tell your man not to sweat it, just carry S’well and simplify his life!  Next time your man is late for work, he can easily store his S’well in a computer bag without the hassle of condensation on electronic devices. Best of all, S’well bottles come in 7 sexy colors, like “Manly Midnight Black” and “Silver Lining”.

The best part is that S’well has teamed up with WaterAid, a non-profit organization that for the past 30 years has been working to deliver water solutions to world’s poorest communities. Every bottle sold provides a year supply of water for someone in need, and every five bottles sold provides a lifetime supply. Water is essential for life, but one billion people, one sixth of the world’s population, do not have safe access to it. To address this crisis, for every S’well bottle sold, 10% percent of the proceeds are donated to this charity.

Still Blonde small The Chief Blonde Remarks: We have previously reviewed and featured s’well water bottle review in our 2010 Gift that Give Back Holiday Gift Guide.   At the time, I had no idea how much I would use this great bottle.  Whenever I am getting into the car for any extended time (with the price of gas, it’s not too often!), I have my S’well bottle right there with me.  The Blue Color (now named Ocean Blue in their fantastic contest where they let the fans name all of the colors!)  just makes me silly happy.  The water stays “Brain Freeze” cold when I load the bottle up with ice.  In fact, the ice doesn’t melt for about two days, even if I leave the lid off!  Recently, I received a S’well bottle in one of their new fab colors–”Midnight Black”.  It coordinates perfectly with my Black Oldsmobile Stealth van that I drive (so named because it is so very hard to find in a parking lot–black, boring, etc.).  However, there is nothing boring about the Midnight Black Stealth bottle, I look like a spy drinking out of it, and I feel cool because I KNOW I am not reeking havoc on the environment!  Our family used to go through tons of water bottles, no longer…I and my husband just use the S’well bottle!  Plus, I like the fact that 10% of all profits go directly to a human who will be able to drink pure clean water for a year.  Something I take for granted everyday–God Bless America!

THE CONTEST: Contest runs from March 30 –April 12, 2011
