Review ~#Ozeri #Curva Artisan Double Wall Glasses

Some people like to have a cocktail after work or on the weekend.
I say "It's 5 o'clock Somewhere"
Thank so much JB for that wonderful lyric!

I was so excited to be chosen to try out this innovative glassware.
Not only are they unique and gorgeous in their own right,
they are so practical for any type of beverage.
Love their shape that proves easy to pick up and hold.


They are made of durable, heat resistant, mouth-blown borosilicate glass of the finest quality, the CURVA is the latest addition to the Ozeri Artisan Series of award-winning handcrafted drink ware.

Ok, just what is borosilicate glass?
An unfamiliar term to me -
Borosilicate glass is stronger than common glass, shatter-resistant, and with the CURVA's double-walled design, it offers the ultimate insulation to maintain drinks at their ideal temperature.

Stronger than common glass? COOL!
We go through a lot of glasses around here
(yes, we are one of those clumsy families) ;)
No more worries about making sure everyone has a coaster or finding unsightly water rings on your furniture.
The double wall with each glass keeps it free of condensation
with your chilled beverages! No more slippery glasses either.
Great for iced teas, cocktails, frozen beverages and much more.

It also keeps your hands cool even with your hottest drinks!
  CURVA is great for coffee, cappuccinos, hot teas,
and other hot drinks.

Such a pretty glass that does it all!
I'm impressed!
  The CURVA's unique double wall design suspends drinks within an inner wall for an attention-grabbing optical effect. Each of the 4 Glasses has a Unique Shaped Inside wall

I really like the look of the glasses. The dual wall makes the liquid almost look suspended in thin air! It adds a great effect and offers something really different to a standard glass.

My main concern was the fragility of the glass.
Firmly gripping the glassware indicated to me that the glasses were of a sturdy construction.  They  have a considerable weight to them. Not so weighty that I found them heavy, but enough to prove that one does not have to be dainty when enjoying these glasses.
That's a good 2 thumbs up in this home!

CURVA is completely dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe.
Although dishwasher safe, I believe elegant glasses like these deserve to be hand washed, so that is what I have been doing. 

Each set contains four unique, handmade glasses designed for lifetime use and are available at Amazon.
Final opinion:
Love the glasses - the shape, weight, and insulating properties.
Great gift too!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Happy Thanksgiving to All of You on MY Train!

I received this and it is so touching I needed to share
At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel on our side. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone. As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of your life. Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don't realize they vacated their seats. This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves.
The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way, love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.
I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life. Reap success and give lots of love. More importantly, thank God for the journey.
Lastly, I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train.
         Happy Thanksgiving!
