It’s giveaway time — and also Oui In France’s birthday! This month, Oui In France turns 5 years old! I can’t believe it!
No matter how long you’ve been reading my blog, I’d like to say thank you. Without all of you out there commenting, sharing, and encouraging me, my blog wouldn’t be what it is, so again, un grand merci. To help say thanks, I’ve teamed up with Rolser for a fun shopping trolley giveaway open to Oui In France readers worldwide.
Oui In France’s 5th birthday, a Rolser shopping trolley review (GIVEAWAY)
So wow, 5 years.
I started blogging about 6 months after moving to France and it’s become a major part of my life. I’ve written on French culture, the French language, on blogging, on our travels within France, a sprinkling of fitness-related posts, my struggles as an expat, my mistakes, what it’s like as an American in France and so much more.
Out of all 585 posts on my site, here are a few of my more memorable posts (in no particular order).
If you have a favorite that maybe I didn’t list, let me know in the comments. I love hearing from you!
I also have a “Start Here” section of my site with some top posts by category in case you’re new here. 😉
I won’t get all sentimental on you about what this blog means to me, but just know I appreciate every one of you. Every comment, every email, every share, and every encouraging word.
About Rolser and shopping trolleys
When I first moved to France, I quickly noticed that everyone seemed to have a fancy shopping trolley. People would roll one to and from the grocery store, to the farmers’ market, the laundromat and pretty much anywhere they’d shop.
At first, I wasn’t into these granny cart things and figured they weren’t for me, but oh, how wrong I was. They are essential to life in France!
After several weeks of lugging my shopping bags home by hand from the store, I realized there is a much better way. So consider me a convert. Men and women of all ages use shopping trolleys in France (and other parts of the world)! They’re good for the environment and the responsible way to do your daily shopping.
You can find many brands of shopping trolleys in France at all price points but the brand that caught my eye was the Spanish brand Rolser. They’re the best looking ones on the market, really.
I bought myself a nice red shopping trolley back in 2013, and several years later, it’s still in tip-top shape. I’ve now added the one pictured in this post to the mix (Thanks, Rolser!). Rolser products are made in Spain and even Oprah loves the brand!
Rolser is constantly innovating and their trolleys are extremely well made, durable, and chic. If you live in France (and other parts of Europe) and you don’t have one, you’d be in the minority! Readers have also let me know they’re becoming more and more popular with all age groups in the US as well!
The Rolser Giveaway
As I mentioned, I’ve teamed up with Rolser for this worldwide giveaway and they’re generously offering Oui In France readers the chance to win two of their products:
The Bag S Bag
The Bag S Bag comes in a bunch of fun colors that pop. Use it at the market while out shopping or just as an everyday purse. It’s made of a durable vinyl type of material that could easily be wiped clean. It zips closed and has a little pouch inside as well. The bag retails for 33 euros. Color pictured is green (a bright turquoise/aqua).
Shopping Trolley I-Max Symbol
Aside from the convenience factor and the eye-catching design, one of the first things I noticed about this shopping trolley was the sturdiness of the foldable frame. This is an incredibly well-built piece and transports a full load of groceries with ease. In fact, the recommended load is 55 pounds but it can do a bit more than that with ease! Stylish and practical, Rolser shopping trolleys are musts for men and women of all age groups. There’s a style, size and price that suits everyone. Giveaway model retails for 101 euros.
Isn’t she purdy?
Here’s some info about this particular model which is part of the Julià Collection:
“At Rolser we have been committed to art and artists for many years. We thought that talent and genius should not remain behind walls, but should conquer the streets. And in our search we found a genius, Julià Arazo. A versatile artist who gives us light, purity, simplicity, abstraction and minimalism beneath a gaze which, out of the corner of the eye, always reflects his Mediterranean origin, somewhere in between Ibiza and the Marina Alta. He fell in love with its beautiful scenery, and we fell for him.”
Here are some of the features:
- Double inner pouches for a small wallet, notebook, pen, etc.
- Back pocket with a zipper which is great for a magazine, book, or anything you want to keep flat and separate
- Large capacity
