Nimli Review and Azuri Shawl Giveaway



GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED

The Random Number Generator selected #103 so Congratulations to Barbara! I have sent an email to her and she has 48 hours to respond. Thank you so much to all who participated!

One of my favorite pastimes as a teenage girl was to spend countless hours browsing through all the popular fashion magazines dreaming about all the gorgeous, stylish, chic clothes, accessories and beauty products in them. I was always captivated by the women I would see wearing beautiful, flowing, silky shawls gently and effortlessly draped over their shoulders. I always thought they looked so Parisian and European Chic, a fantasy that was a far cry from how I sat staring at them from my bedroom. Those lingering thoughts from when I was a dreamy eyed teenager came back to haunt me when I browsed through all the amazing products and designers listed on the Nimli website. It is a real treat to visit there, and be dazzled and inspired by so much beauty! And, who knew eco-friendly and being green could be so chic?



A few of my favorite items from Nimi are the
Lara Miller Tiered Ronnie Dress, I think it is so unique in its design, I love the pleating at the top portion of the dress and I think the fit of the dress is very flattering for a lot of different body types. What an ultra chic and adorable dress to wear out to a special occasion.



The Laura Elizabeth Jewelry Barbara Necklace is another item that just really caught my eye. The bright, bold look of this necklace will make such an elegant fashion statement to any outfit. I can see myself wearing this with a simple black dress or change things up and wear it with a basic white tee and a favorite pair of jeans, either way it is a versatile piece that will transform your look from ordinary to extraordinary!



Or, if you are a shoe diva like me, then finding a pair of really hot, sexy shoes that you totally covet is exciting and that's the effect these Wine colored Neuaura Tamarin Sandals had on me, wow is all I can say!




The generous folks at Nimli sent me a stunning Azuri Cashmere Pashmina Shawl in the pretty pale color Lemon. I couldn't wait to take it out of its protective plastic wrap to run my fingers through it, feel its silky soft texture and test out how it feels draped across me. It made me want to twirl in a circle and pretend I was one of those fashion models in the magazines that I used to dream about when I was a young girl. Let me say, the shawl made me feel everything I had imagined it would. I felt pretty, feminine, chic, a touch Parisian, and definitely confident. I can't wait to wear it out with one of my summer sundresses and hit the town with my husband for a night out! It will serve to keep me warm in the air conditioned restaurant as well as in the night summer air. This Azuri shawl will also be that finishing touch that my outfit needs to have to give it that pulled together polished "complete" look.

I was very impressed with the quality of the fabric of this shawl. It is ultra soft, a very tight thread count, and in my opinion impeccably made. I was amazed at how many different beautiful colors you can choose to purchase this shawl in. This shawl literally comes in every color you can think of. Here's more detailed information about it, then we will move on to the GIVEAWAY!

From the Nimli Website: "This finely woven Pashmina Shawl will keep you warm and looking incredibly polished whatever the occasion. The natural qualities of the Pashmina & Silk provide warmth, softness and durability while also adding elegance and beauty. Expertly woven with only the finest Pashmina & Silk, this Pashmina Shawl can be used all year and for any occasion. Due to the amazing versatility & practicality of this Pashmina Shawl, anytime is a good time - day and night, while traveling and at home, formal events and casual outings, as a wrap, shawl and scarf. A timeless, must-have piece that you can always carry with you. 70% Pashmina 30% Silk. 72" length x 22" width. Fringed ends. Imported. Dry Clean."

From the Nimli Website: "Nimli is an online marketplace devoted to providing natural, organic, and sustainable lifestyle products while embracing style and aesthetic. Nimli offers clothing, accessories, home d├ęcor, beauty products and much more from independent designers who combine their effortless creativity with our environmentally conscious ethics. We offer an array of ecologically friendly products that are natural, organic, recycled, sweatshop-free, and cruelty-free. We are firmly aligned with a lifestyle that cultivates a green conscious mind, body, and soul.

Nimli was founded in New York City in 2003 by entrepreneur Rajat Arora, a vegetarian since early childhood and a keen advocate of an organic way of life free from cruelty. Conscious of the pertinence of preserving the environment, Rajat created Nimli with the vision, hope, and philosophy of making it possible for people to adopt a sustainable lifestyle through an extensive offering of green products and services.

Nimli is one of the most environmentally mindful retailers due to our practice and policy that requires all designers to ship their products directly to our customers. This results in placing a much lower carbon footprint by eliminating the unnecessary step of shipping items to a warehouse for future re-shipment. Further advancing this model and striving to become completely carbon neutral, Nimli purchases Green Tags to offset the carbon released from shipping, energy consumption and other business activities.


We embrace a way of life that supports goods that do not cause suffering and damage to the environment. Living in such a manner involves cultivating products and services that avoid harm to animals and prevent the depletion of the Earth’s natural resources.
