ZaZa Gallery Canvas Print (Product Review)

by Jamie Sanford on July 12, 2011

In January of this year, I responded to a message on Twitter to try out the canvas photo prints from Zaza Gallery. In exchange for a link on my site, I would be provided with a free 16×20 canvas print. I received the product a while ago and have been greatly impressed and excited with the results and so decided to blog about it.  (I was not asked to write about the service at all.)

Let’s start out with the original photo.  My husband took this during our trip to Bar Harbor, Maine, in October 2009.  He had mentioned wanting to have a canvas print made, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to do so.

Nice, right? I think so too. I think the black-and-white conversion is spectacular, and it really reminds me of walking along the bay near The Bar Harbor Inn, and that’s the best compliment I can give to a vacation photo.

Here are the photos of what I received from ZaZa Gallery. Please keep in mind that the lighting situation in my bedroom is not giving this product the look it deserves.

The canvas print of this photo looks really fantastic.  I have a CFL bulb in the bedroom lamp and the colors are off here, but I think you can still get an idea of the quality of this print, and I promise the color is correct in person.  I was slightly worried about the color because the tones in the original post are so rich, but it turned out so well.

You can see a closer view of the canvas print here.  The color looks better in this photo, and you can see the tight wrapping around the frame here as well.  The print came to me via FedEx in perfect condition.  The folks at ZaZa Gallery know what they are doing with regard to both creating and shipping product.

Thanks so much to ZaZa Gallery for the chance to try their product out for myself.  I’m thrilled with the results and was happy to link to them from The Daily Wishlist, as I intend on using their services again in the near future. The 16×20 canvas wrap print is available from ZaZa Gallery for $68 plus shipping and handling – there is a large range of other products, sizes and finishes available as well.

Disclosure: ZaZa Gallery provided me a 16×20 canvas print from their shop at no cost, in exchange for a link to their website. I was not asked to write a blog post about the canvas print I received.

Helen Mirren: Celebrity Product Pick

by Jamie Sanford on January 18, 2011

Did everyone watch the Golden Globes this weekend?  I was more excited this year as Trent Reznor won his first Golden Globe! I’ve been a serious fan of his since I was much younger and I’m thrilled for his current success with co-composing the score for The Social Network.

Anyway, the red carpet was a great time as well, there was so much fabulous fashion! One person I didn’t see on television during red carpet coverage but who I loved on the show was Helen Mirren.  She always looks fabulous!

Examples:

This is Helen Mirren at the 2007 Oscars.


This is Dame Helen Mirren at the 2010 Oscars – still looking sexy and fabulous.


Here is a photo from the Golden Globe Awards, earlier this week.  Helen looks more fabulous when you see her side by side with the runway model in the dress in this post on Red Carpet Fashion Awards.

Anyway, I’m a big fan of Helen – I don’t think I’m alone in that, a lot of people seem excited about the fact that she remains so sexy and gorgeous and she is 65!

Helen Mirren appeared in last month’s “On My Mind” feature in In Style magazine, and discussed her love of stripper heels, her desire to work with Quentin Tarantino and finally, her discovery of a Revlon product called Just Bitten.


I am not aware of this product and haven’t tried it but I definitely will pick it up now.  That applicator looks like it would be really easy to use, and Helen insists that the color sticks around for quite a while.

The Helen Mirren pick, Revlon Just Bitten lip stain, is available in multiple colors for $7.69 from Amazon.

I’ve never actually done one of these, but I figured why not.  I am slightly disappointed that over time, the most popular posts have been ones that I never really expected to perform well, but isn’t that always the way?
