Lilla Rose Hair Jewelry Review & Giveaway

It seems every day my hair is up in some way whether it be a pony tail, half up, twisted up…. you get the idea.  Since my days consist of chasing around a four and two year old, changing diapers, breastfeeding, doing laundry, continuously picking up messes, and staring into the computer screen for long periods of time having my hair hanging down in my face is just not practical.  But I really hated just using a simple elastic band – for some reason they give off a childish vibe to me, especially when doing a half up style.  Let’s … …..

2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Something About Silver Review & Giveaway

Like most women I love jewelry.  But for the most part I like looking at it – if that makes any sense, hehe.  I think rings, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings that are big and full of bling are pretty, but their not for me.  I prefer simple classic pieces and I really love silver.  My wedding ring and past, present, future ring are white gold because I refuse to wear yellow gold and they look nice along with the silver jewelry that I prefer.  I don’t tend to wear much jewelry – in fact the two rings I just mentioned … …..

2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Earthy Expressions Personalized Mothers Necklace Review

Like most women I love jewelry… before having my little ones I had tons of it and loved wearing different big funky pieces everyday.  But my style has definitely simplified and now I prefer to wear just a few pieces in addition to my wedding ring on a daily basis.  I also like every piece of jewelry I wear to have a meaning behind it and since being a mom is my greatest joy in life having a necklace with my munchkins names on it is perfection for me.  As I mentioned I prefer a simplistic style and absolutely love … …..

Myself Belts Review & Giveaway

Dilly is my lil skinny minnie.  If I buy her jeans to fit length the waist is too big and if I get them to fit her waist it looks like she is waiting for a flood to come, hehe.  And so most of her jeans have an adjustable waist, but I hated being limited in choices  of pants to buy her.  I needed a belt that she would be able to use herself, but couldn’t find anything like that in stores.  Every belt was just a smaller version of an adult size belt that Dilly wouldn’t be able to … …..
