Chewylou Designs Review and Giveaway



I am very pleased to report that I LOVE the long sleeve T shirt I received from Chewylou Designs! It's the kind of T shirt that I like to wear. It's functional as well. I would wear this in a yoga or pilates class, a trip to the grocery store, or just hanging out. I love the message on my shirt as well. It's 100% cotton and soft to the touch-very comfy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chewylou Designs is named after her dogs Chewbacca aka "Chewy" and Lexington aka "Lexi Lou", their 100 pound chocolate Labrador Retriever. Inspired by her mother's battle with breast cancer for the 3rd time, Alyssa Dinowitz created the shirt LIVE meaning Love, Imagine, Value, and Embrace. Drawing from life experiences, her husband Marc, and two children Cooper and Maddie supply an endless source of inspiration, optimism and unconditional love all reflected in her clothing. Qualities that Chewylou enhance are: FAITH, HOPE, DREAM, BREATHE, PEACE, LIVE and GRACE. Sold in Arizona Los Angeles, New York, and Seattle, these shirts are meant to inspire through positive thought and promote physical and spiritual strength. We proudly support the Susan G. Komen For The Cure Phoenix, Planting Peace and the Arizona Kidney Foundation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I really love the special touch of the hand embellished Swarovski crystals on the sleeve of the shirt. It just adds that little something extra.

Alyssa at Chewylou Designs was generous to donate a short sleeve PEACE T shirt and a long sleeve LIVE T shirt. The proceeds from the shirts will go to Planting Peace and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
There will 2 winners for this giveaway. Thanks Alyssa!
