CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Blacksocks.com Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

 

 

There are few things less desir­able than sock shop­ping for my hus­band.  That is why I found the Blacksocks.com Sockscrip­tion to be such a fab­u­lous idea.  For an annual sub­scrip­tion fee of $89, “sockscribers” receive 3 pairs of socks every 4 months…so 9 pairs a year.  Ship­ping is included, so it works out to be around $10 per pair.  The socks are very soft and are made in North­ern Italy from high qual­ity, durable yarn.  Even the most par­tic­u­lar guy would find these to be great socks.  They come in dif­fer­ent heights and fab­rics depend­ing on his taste.  The only detri­ment is they only come in black.  But, for socks deliv­ered auto­mat­i­cally to your doorstep all year long, it’s totally worth it!

Choose your sock style:

•Calf Socks (most popular)

 •Busi­ness Light Trouser Socks

 •Knee Socks

•Cash­mere Silk Socks

•Ath­letic Socks (short)

•Ski socks

 

“BLACKSOCKS are man­u­fac­tured near Milan in North­ern Italy, the fash­ion cap­i­tal of the world. The fac­tory is run by a second-generation fam­ily of sock arti­sans, who pay par­tic­u­lar atten­tion to the intri­cate details it takes to pro­duce high-end, high-quality prod­ucts. Our black socks are made from a blend of the finest Peru­vian Pima cot­ton — con­sid­ered the silk of South Amer­ica — Lycra and polyamide fab­ric to rein­force the toe and heel.

All Nat­ural, Hypoal­ler­genic: Our men’s dress socks and every­day socks are cer­ti­fied by the Oeko-Tex® Stan­dard 100, an inter­na­tional test­ing ser­vice that ensures that prod­ucts are eco­log­i­cally sound, use no harm­ful sub­stances, are hypoal­ler­genic and are suit­able for sen­si­tive skin. Our entire prod­uct line has been sci­en­tif­i­cally eval­u­ated under this standard.

Com­fort­able: Over 40,000 dis­cern­ing Euro­peans turn to Black­socks each year to reg­u­larly pur­chase their socks. They know the socks are com­fort­able to the feet and will not fray or wear out quickly. Even with repeated wash­ings, our socks main­tain their high qual­ity and wearability.

Soft and durable: These crew socks are soft to the skin and made to last. Dur­ing the man­u­fac­tur­ing process, they are ran­domly tested and washed 20 times to ensure long last­ing wear.”

Blacksocks.com not only car­ries an exten­sive line of socks, but they also sell men’s under­wear and t-shirts as well!

Hubby was over­whelmed with the feel of the best sell­ing Calf-socks that he was sent to review! They are made of high qual­ity and he says they felt so great on while wearing!

One can­not go wrong with Blacksocks.com!

    CoolCanucks Review of Novica.com!

    Sunday, February 28th, 2010

     

    Novica is one of the lead­ing fair trade arti­san web­sites. Novica works with National Geo­graphic to give tal­ented arti­sans around the world a place to express their artis­tic tal­ents and pro­vide access to the world market.

    Novica, in asso­ci­a­tion with National Geo­graphic, sells prod­ucts — home decor, jew­elry, apparel, gifts and more — made by arti­sans from Asia, Africa and Latin Amer­ica. Artists post their work on the Novica site for free; Novica allows them to set their own prices. The com­pany makes money when a piece sells, and goods ship directly from the coun­try of origin.

    The online com­pany gives you the oppor­tu­nity to learn about the artists lives, explore fas­ci­nat­ing cul­tures,  and browse more than 30,000  unique gifts includ­ing green gifts, Gifts for her, apparel, home decor, beau­ti­ful hand­made jew­elry, Turquoise Jew­elry, Sil­ver Neck­lacesUnique Gifts, carved wood fur­ni­ture, gifts for mom, and soooooooooo much more!

     

     

    Novica was designed specif­i­cally to give artisan’s a chance to sell their designs. This is such a great site. I was thor­oughly impressed with the designs that they offer! They offer any­thing from sil­ver jew­elry to home decor that are hand­made. They also offer gor­geous neck­laces! These arti­sans are truly gifted!

    Each of the artists have a bio that you can view to get an inside glance at the per­son from whom you are pur­chas­ing from.

    We want to give artists and arti­sans around the world a global plat­form to express their true artis­tic tal­ents and to spur their cre­ativ­ity. And, we want to pro­vide you with access to unique, hard-to-find items at great val­ues that only the Inter­net infra­struc­ture can allow.

    At the deep­est essence of our phi­los­o­phy, we want to cre­ate a bridge between you and the many tal­ented arti­sans across the globe.

    We want you to know about who you’re buy­ing from. We want you to feel that attach­ment to the prod­uct and to the hands that cre­ated it.”

     

    Every­thing that Novica.com sells is com­pletely gor­geous and made of high quality.

    I was sent two really gor­geous unique hang­bags to review, and absolutely love them both!

    Their deliv­ery time as well as their cus­tomer ser­vice skills are also beyond outstanding!!

    “Mighty and regal, ele­phants cel­e­brate Thailand’s artis­tic her­itage in a design by Jiap Roj­jana. The bro­cade adorns a cot­ton shoul­der bag trimmed with rain tree wood and a coconut shell but­ton. The lined inte­rior fea­tures a prac­ti­cal pocket.”

    “Embroi­dered in pre­cise pat­terns, hill tribe motifs form col­or­ful stars. Ancha­lika Cham­nan works with locally grown or pre­pared mate­ri­als to craft this chic shoul­der bag. The cot­ton motifs are applied to hemp, while lon­gan wood hoops attach the straps.”

    I give this com­pany a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend them to everyone!!

    I want to thank Novica.com for let­ting me be part of their review!!

    CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Chocomize Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

    Saturday, February 27th, 2010

     

    Wel­come to my dream world, a world filled with creamy lus­cious mouth-watering choco­late 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

    Let me have the plea­sure of intro­duc­ing you to Chocomize, where all of the scrump­tious cus­tom choco­late just can’t taste any better!!

    Imag­ine the best piece of choco­late you have ever had. Now try and imag­ine if you could take your favorite choco­late (dark, milk or white) and add any ingre­di­ents you want to it to make it the “per­fect” choco­late bar for you? What would your choco­late bar include?

    Well Chocomize makes your dreams a real­ity, because you can do just that! You can choose any type of choco­late your fan­tasy mind desires, add any type of ingre­di­ent, and voila! Chocomize will make you your dream choco­late bar and send it right to your home!!

    You can choose exactly what you would like to add to your choco­late bar, or pre-order their hot best sell­ers listed directly from their site at extremely low unbeat­able prices!

    show_image_in_imgtag

    Chocomize allows you to cre­ate your per­fect choco­late bar using a large assort­ment of fruits, nuts, herbs, can­dies and other mis­cel­la­neous goodies!!

    Look­ing for the per­fect choco­late bar to be used as Wed­ding Favors? Chocomize is an expert!! How about Choco­late Cor­po­rate Gifts? What an excel­lent idea! Chocomize can spe­cially design them for you as well! The ideas are end­less at Chocomize!!!

    You can even give a Chocomize choco­late bar as a birth­day gift. One of the ingre­di­ent options is a sugar can­dle holder that you can insert a can­dle into and sing “Happy Birth­day” to the lucky recip­i­ent. What a unique and won­der­ful idea!!

    Cre­at­ing a “Chocomized” choco­late bar is super easy. You first need to select the base choco­late (dark, milk or white). Then you add up to five dif­fer­ent ingre­di­ents from all the avail­able options. Each option shows it’s indi­vid­ual price so you can keep track of the over­all cost of your Chocomize choco­late bar in case you are work­ing with a bud­get. You can cre­ate a choco­late bar for just over $5.00 (plus ship­ping) upward to around $15.00 if you opt to use the most expen­sive ingre­di­ents like the gold flakes. Ingre­di­ents range in price from .25 cents to $3.95 with most ingre­di­ents in the .25 — .75 range.

    aa

    Chocomize let me review two of my own choco­late bars! I first chose the dreamy milk-chocolate, and my first one included macadamia nuts (YUM)! The sec­ond one I wanted to try was their ever pop­u­lar choco­late bar called “That’s Nuts” which includes Dark Choco­late, Pecan Halves, Wal­nuts, But­ter Toasted Peanuts, and Hazel­nuts! And wow — both choco­late bars were extremely tan­tiliz­ing to the taste buds!!

    thatsnuts

    Over­all I am very impressed. The choco­late was fresh tast­ing since each choco­late bar is made fresh for each order. They didn’t “skimp” on the ingre­di­ents. The choco­late had more than enough extra good­ies. I am also pleased with the large size of the choco­late bar!

    The com­pany was quick to ship and even included the ingre­di­ents on each bar as well as the nutri­tion facts.

    I can hon­estly say I am now a huge fan of Chocomize. I know I will be order­ing from them in the future. With Easter com­ing I know that a Chocomize bar would make a great gift or goodie tucked into an Easter basket!!

     

    Win it!!

     

    The extremely kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Chocomize has offered to give one lucky Cool­Canucks reader the chance to win a $25 E-certificate from their online web­site!! AWESOME!! 

    Also, if you would like to pur­chase any­thing from Chocomize, they have also set us up a coupon code! Sim­ply use code ‘cool­canuck’ in the coupon sec­tion of the check­out to save $5.00 off of your order!!
