august giveaway!


I am so happy and proud to announce that my sister Shelly just opened her own etsy shop - Hairblooms! She is selling these and many other adorable headbands for babies and toddlers. They are so beautiful, yet simple enough to go with any outfit whether fancy or casual.

I'll let her tell you in her own words why she decided to open up shop with this snippet from her etsy profile:

"Hairblooms began as an idea I had one quiet afternoon while I was holding my daughter. She was born with a bright red birthmark, called a hemangioma, on the tip top of her head. And, although everyone who knows her agrees that she is cute as can be with a “cherry on top,” I noticed that sometimes in public people would stare at her birthmark and miss seeing the beautiful girl she is inside and out. So, in thinking of ways I could teach her that she and every little girl are beautiful just the way they are, I came up with the idea to celebrate her beauty by making headbands for her... I decided to name my shop “hairblooms” because I like to think of each of my headbands as a little heirloom I’m giving to my daughter. And what they represent – teaching your little girl that she is beautiful exactly the way she is – is an invaluable gift that I hope can be passed down from every mother to daughter."

To celebrate her grand opening she has offered you a chance to win one of her gorgeous headbands!

You have two chances to win,

1) Just visit her shop and then come back and leave a comment saying which headband you would like if you win!

2) Link to this giveaway on your blog and then come back and let me know!

The giveaway will close on Sunday, August 30th.

Good luck!

  31. I know the contest is over I just wanted to comment on how beautiful of an idea this is. My baby boy was also born with a hemangioma (on the side of his face) and while I forget it is there, when we go out we are asked about it frequently and I also feel people don't notice the beautiful baby he is.

    Wonderful blog! brilliant clothes!
