Lookie Lous….A Brilliant Idea from Innovative Women + A Giveaway!!

It is kind of amazing to think that women were not recognized for their inventions until just prior to the 19th Century.

   But since then, women
inventors have literally changed the world….from windshield wipers to wireless
Blogging has introduced me to so many creative
women entrepreneurs, and today I am bringing you two more…the creators of LOOKIE LOUS!!!
Here is the story from the website: “Veterans
of fashion and design, company founders Kelly and Kristie met 25 years ago
while working in the Los Angeles garment district.  Shortly after turning 40, they discovered
that small print and misplaced reading glasses were becoming increasingly
nuisances for them both.  Kelly
remembered she has been wearing her daughter’s plastic hairband and kept
mistaking it on her head for readers….and the idea was born!”

LOOKIE LOUS were developed in Kelly’s
house.  They are transparent, lightweight
and can easily perform both roles as eyewear and a headband.  My husband finds them to be
excellent readers and gives his endorsement!  And he is always
looking for his glasses!  I need more
than a reader…but I can always use a great headband.  Just think of the genius of this…now you can
sit by the pool, protect your eyes, read a great book, and look fabulous all at
the same time…then even hold back your wet hair later.  The ladies are also happy to donate old
readers to underprivileged families.

As we pass over 40, men and women begin to struggle with Prebyopia.  Prebyopia is the increasing inability to focus on close objects and simply means that we will need a pair of reading glasses often for the rest of our lives. Lookie Lous becomes a great solution for comfort, style and functionality. They have even designed a pair for those of us with eye strain from excessive computer use.

Find a need and fill it…that is what these
ladies certainly did and in a very fashionable way! These would make a great gift for yourself and others!  But, the exciting news is that one of you will win a pair of Lookie Lous, color of your choice.  

All, you have to do is leave your name and email in the comments!  Then go to their Facebook page, HERE, and give them a LIKE.  Tell me below that you did these things and your name is in the basket!!

A winner will be drawn on August 8!!
