Snazzy bath! Izola Graphic Shower Curtain {giveaway}

GIVEAWAY CLOSED - PENDING WINNER VERIFICATION

If there's one thing I am, it's frugal. I have to be, since I live alone and am my own sole support. So I spend a lot of time in discount stores looking over the wares, trying to stretch my meager income to cover all the things I need.

Like shower curtains. Yeah, I've looked at shower curtains in the major department stores and major online outlets, but honestly? I wasn't impressed. I've never been the ruffle-y type, so those frilly shower curtains that cost upwards of $40-$50 just don't appeal to me.

And especially since I can get a simple, utilitarian shower curtain at the dollar store for a few bucks. Those frilly curtains look great in someone else's home, with the matching toilet seat cover, floor rug, tissue box cover, etc. etc. But it's not for me. A plain ol' see-through plastic shower curtain liner serves me well, thank you very much.

So imagine my delight when I found Izola Shower! You have got to see these shower curtains! Izola makes the most eye-catching shower curtains I've ever seen - and I've seen a lot of them.

In awed fascination I perused the graphic shower curtains available at Izola. Here, take a look for yourself and you'll see what I mean --

World Destination Shower Curtains featuring Venice, Brooklyn Bridge, Las Vegas, Paris, Trafalgar Square, and Rio de Janeiro.

Maps Shower curtains featuring the officially licensed New York City Metropolitan Transit Authority Subway Map, the Chicago Transit Authority Subway Map and Eurail map.

Patterns - unique shower curtain patterns made to enlighten your mood. Includes Homebound, Buddha, Bamboo, Foliage, Feathers, Barbershop.

Artist Series - Izola featured artist series shower curtains.

Cotton Shower Curtains - 100% Cotton Shower Curtains in fabulous fabrics and designs.
What did I tell you? Did I lie?? :) I am absolutely in love with Izola Shower Curtains!

I decided I wanted the Las Vegas shower curtain for my very own. Just as I was about to hit "order", it occured to me that my readers might like to be introduced to Izola Shower Curtains as well. So when I contacted Izola about doing a product review and giveaway, they very generously agreed.

So I received the Las Vegas shower curtain to review for my blog. Here's how it appears on their website -
Don't you just love it!! VIVA LAS VEGAS!!!

And here's how it appears in my tiny apartment bathroom -
Sorry about the overhead light glare, but that just shows how shiny the curtain is! I am absolutely in love with my new Izola shower curtain and I can't sing their praises loudly enough.

• Material: 100% PVC with nickel plated grommets

• Color: black and white

• Size: 72"x72"

• Care: Wipe clean with a damp cloth

Remember I said I previously only bought dollar store shower curtains for a few bucks? I don't have to tell you that you get what you pay for, right? Those cheap shower curtains are just that - cheap. My new Izola Las Vegas shower curtain is made from heavy gauge plastic that hangs beautifully and is very substantial, unlike the micro-thin discount store variety.

One other little detail that convinced me Izola Shower Curtains are a better bargain than discount store curtains is the fact that they have nickel-plated grommets where you put your hooks. Most cheap curtains only have a punched hole in the plastic, and one good yank rips it beyond repair.

I might have to get some new shower curtain hooks to go with my fabulous new Las Vegas shower curtain, because the old colorful butterfly hooks I have now just don't meet the aesthetic. (these were my only concession to something "frilly" in my bathroom :)
So if you're looking for something to snazz up your bathroom, or snazz up a guest bathroom that will also be an enchanting conversation piece, you can't go wrong with Izola Shower Curtains! Take it from a frugal, single, tiny-apartment dweller, an Izola shower curtain will add more character to your bath than products costing many times more! I couldn't be happier and I will definitely be purchasing Izola Shower Curtains in the future - but the quality of the Las Vegas curtain I received to review assures me that will be several years from now. :)
