Girls Crochet Headbands: A fashionable review and giveaway!

Default post image

Recently I was asked by Girls Crochet Headbands to do a review and giveaway for them. Little did I know that they soon would become my FAVORITE new online store for girls’ and women accessories (if you’re looking for the perfect pin-up flower that photographs well at an amazing price, definitely check them out)! Obviously I love them for their prices, but I also love them for their customer service. They are very active on Facebook and Twitter- answering questions and keeping you up to date on their latest products. They’re also all over Pinterest (hello, lovah!). I love love their pins, so make sure you follow their boards!

When I received the bows, flowers, headbands and hat I was blown away by the quality and attention to detail. So much so, that I actually went to their website and ordered more (yes, on my own dime-full disclosure FTW!). The prices are CRAZY awesome! I bought a hat, one flower, two bows and one headband for $10 and that included shipping! FOR REAL!

So here’s what I received for my review:

Large White Bow

Halloween Flower Clip

Gerber Daisy Three Tone Flower Clip

Gerber Daisy Hot Pink/Zebra Flower Clip

Which you can also check out my kiddo wearing them in my photo below! They are absolutely adorable, photograph well and are stunning in person. My daughter gets compliments all the time about them. Honestly, we can’t go anywhere without someone stopping us to tell her how pretty her bow and/or flower is! The colors are bright and they are put together very well (the quality is consistent). They all have alligator clips, which at first I was really worried about (M has super-thick hair) but they are quite “grippy” and hold all day long- through school, drum lessons- all the way to bed time! M also says they’re very comfortable to wear. She says they’re light and they hold well so she doesn’t worry about them falling out at all, even on the playground.

and I also received the Black Kufi Hat which is so versatile! I love how you can add any bow or flower to it. We had a lot of fun playing around with it. The kufi hat really is the best fall accessory, and comes in so many colors! We loved it so much, that we ordered a pink one. BUT (and here’s my only complaint) the sizing wasn’t consistent. The black kufi hat was quite a bit smaller than the pink, and both times we ordered a large. They do stretch, but the pink was considerably larger. But I wouldn’t let that stop you from ordering it, because like I mentioned, they stretch to fit.

UPDATE: 9/13 2:22pm Girls Crochet Headbands sent me this comment (which just PROVES how awesome their customer service is!): “Just a note about the sizing on the Kufi hats. They are all handmade and do vary some in size. We also get them from a couple of different manufacturers so when they come in, we sort them in size groups as close as we can to each other, but you are right – there are variations! And you are also right that they stretch”.

I turned down a spa day.

Default post image

I know, you think I’ve finally lost it. That the C Diff has gone to my brain. But in spite of this thought, I assure you, I am as sane as I have been in a very long time.

So, here’s the story.

With C Diff looming in my life for the past 8 or so weeks, I’ve had to look forward to something when I got better. So J and I agreed upon a spa day, even though I know we really can’t afford it (You want honesty and integrity? I got it right here, baby!) because of my huge medical bills and his student loans. But, we both agreed that after everything I’ve gone through, I deserve it. And besides, I need one of those break moments.

But that was until about an hour ago.

I went to my eye-doctor to get a pair of sunglasses (that were completely covered by our eye insurance!). And then I turned around, and I fell head over heals in love with these:
Rayban If I could draw sunshine and rainbows all over this page, I would.

Now here’s my theory. If I was willing to spend my husband’s hard earned money on a spa day for me, wouldn’t it make more sense to replace my old, bent out of shape, holding on by a thread (and by thread I mean super glue) current glasses?

And oh boy, would these make me happy! Just look at them! When I put them on, I was in my happy place!

And they are made by my favorite eye-glass brand in the world- Ray Ban!
May you Men In Black fans rejoice (yes, I am a dork, but if you’re reading my blog you should know that already)!

So while my sunglasses were FREE dollars, I must wait a few more weeks (or months) before I can afford my Clubmasters. But I promise you, I will own them. One way or another!

It’s my goal.

Get better.

Get Ray Ban Clubmasters.
