I always love the opportunities I have to review products I normally wouldn't try and I love to host giveaways! It has certainly been busy around here with lots of fun giveaways and I can't wait to keep them going (hint I have a HUGE one coming in January! :)
Anyway, some products I have reviewed I have loved, some, not so much and every once in a while I get a product that surprises me. Not that long ago I was contacted by sweet Adrienne from A Whole New Mom about Lilla Rose hair accessories and was super excited to be able to check out their hair accessories!
I had seen their accessories before, I had even contemplated purchasing something from them. But I am always a little skeptical about purchasing items online that I have never seen in person or that are from a brand I am not familiar with. The products looked nice online, but I was unsure how their quality and look would be in person. I am not the only one with this concern, right?! So I was excited to have the opportunity to see one in person!
Lilla Rose is knows for their Flexi-Clips. Not sure what a flexi-clip is, I didn't know either! Basically is a cute hair accessory that is a great accent piece in a ponytail, a half up, or a full up-do. (you can learn more here) I had a hard time picking out which style I wanted, but I eventually settled on the Scrollwork Heart.
When it arrived, I was pleased to see that this flexi-clip was a good quality product. I could tell it wasn't going to break easily, and the designs were nice looking and elegant, not at all cheesy. Hurray!
So I immediately began playing with it!
I only needed my Flexi-Clip and (1) bobby pin (to get a few fly-aways) to throw my hair back into a cute and simple up-do. It is all up and out of my face and since the clip was cute, it looked like I had spent more time on my hair then I actually did. It was as simple as throwing my hair into a quick claw clip for a spray-painting, sweat-pants sort of day, with the elegance of a simple up-do. Change out of my sweatpants and I could totally go out in public with very little effort :) Love that.
And one of the best parts is that I really think the style is lovely, something I would totally wear, and Brighton-esque. When I pulled my hair back and had my hubby take a photo of the back of my hair (thanks hun!) he said, "That's really pretty, is it from Brighton?"
Yup. Husband's seal of approval acquired.
Lilla Rose also sells other cute hair accessories. Here are a few:
Etched Daisy You-Pin
(You-Pins allow you to throw your hair up into a quick bun with only two pins.)
Lovely Circle Stone-Set Bobby Pins
(Ok, have you ever seen such cute bobby pins!?)
(These look really cute paired in groups of two, you've got to check out how they look on their site)
