In Southern California, the arrival of Spring marks the beginning of fabulous fruit season and gorgeous ruby red strawberries kick off the season in juicy style! I was absolutely delighted when The California Strawberry Commission invited me and my family to spend the day out in their Strawberry Fields in Oxnard and immerse ourselves in all things strawberries!
Upon arrival, we were whisked away (rustic style) on a tractor into the strawberry fields
We immediately jumped into the fields and started picking the most vibrant, fresh, ruby red berries
Have you ever tried farm fresh picked Strawberries? I highly rec it, they are nothing short of spectacular especially when they are at peak season. And my little man just couldn’t resist . . . . .
I think it’s about time for a FABULOUS Spring Giveaway, don’t you? Well, you are in for a real treat because one of my most adored SoCal fashion brands is offering a very generous giveaway for Romy Raves readers, can I get a WOOT WOOT! First, let me tell you about the brand. Subtle Luxury is a SoCal based clothing company that designs fashion items with a washed, cozy lived-in look and a vintage feel.
Subtle Luxury makes the most gorgeous high quality cashmere sweaters that I have been wearing and buying for years! What I love about Subtle Luxury’s sweaters is that they are super lightweight, cozy, the designs are on trend and figure flattering and they hold up well over time. I have had some of my sweaters over ten years and the styles and quality have endured. And although they don’t come cheap, the craftsmanship and beautiful creative silhouettes are TOTALLY worth it!
They recently sent me the fabulous Tissue Thin V-Sweater in Persimmon ($234) which I am wearing in the picture above and I LOVE it! It is such a vibrant gorgeous show stopping melony Springy hue and it totally captures the season. And can we talk about the fabulous cut of this sweater, gorgeous, right? I love how the sides hang long and frame and flatter the body. These sweaters are made out of 100% California Cashmere, are ultra thin and super lightweight making them perfect for Spring and Summer and they can even be hand washed. However, I’m sad to say that this color sweater was so popular, that they have already sold out, but you can find a very similar style HERE.
I don’t know about you, but I’m not really a fan of cleaning, however I recently discovered Mrs. Meyer*s Clean Day FAB line of cleaning products and that all changed! Mrs. Meyer*s Clean Day is an earth-friendly line of aromatherapeutic household cleaning products made from plant-derived ingredients and essential oils. The products are biodegradable, packaged in recycled bottles, don’t have ammonia, chlorine bleach, parabens or phosphates, yet they clean effectively and are gentle on your home and the environment.
The products are available in an array of wonderful Garden-Fresh scents and I LOVE their brand new RADISH scent, just in time for Spring Cleaning! It’s super fresh, crisp, peppery and spicy and I like the smell so much, that it actually makes me want to clean (shhhh. . . don’t tell my hubby ) I know it’s hard to believe, but these products are really impressive, affordable (you can find them at Target), and they offer a nice change of pace from the cloying, ammonia heavy cleaning products that most of us are used to. The Radish products smell really refreshing and pleasant and they leave a zippy scent after use.
So in celebration of all things Spring, I am giving away FIVE sets of Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Radish Kitchen Basics Set which includes the following three Radish scented kitchen cleaning products:
- Liquid Dish Soap - A rich concentrated dish soap that contains naturally degreasing Soap Bark Extract as well as plant derived powerful cleansers and essential oils. This soap is gentle on your hands yet powerful on your dishes
- Countertop Spray – It’s made with the same basic formula as Mrs. Meyer*s All Purpose Cleaner with an added special Vegetable Protein Extract, a naturally fresh spray for cleaning counters and removing odors from the kitchen and bath
- Liquid Hand Soap – This non-drying hand soap contains aloe vera gel, olive oil and a unique blend of natural essential oils and plant-derived ingredients that leave your hands soft and hydrated
