Wednesday

$25 Free Loot!!

*UPDATED* Congrats to Peace and Carrots! Someone is going to get some cute loot! Don't forget to shop Etsy this holiday season, y'all. And if you didn't win, don't fret I have several more giveaways coming up (one tomorrow!)

I'm bound and determined to turn my toddler into a bow head. 

She's resisting.

But I will overcome. Especially since we took her for her first trim this week (to address the nest).

The hairstylist wanted us to get our money's worth.  Apparently. Because the word trim has many definitions.


As I dried my tears with her golden locks, my oldest made me promise to make her girly. She's convinced she'll be mistaken for a boy.

Our little pixie with a pixie:


But I'm not worried. Especially since there are places like Ally's Boutique, the fabulous Mom store I'm featuring today.   Now, tell me, wouldn't my cutie look adorable in this:  You Pick Crochet Beanie with Boutique Hair Bow    Or these clips for her hair. And I'm interested in this for me, do you think this tutu would make me look small?Tutu Dress with Matching Flower Hair Bow Just askin'.

Ally has generously offered one of you $25 in free loot! All your little darling's (or your friend, family and foe's little darling) hair dreams will come true!  Her prices are so reasonable that $25 will go a long way in someone's stocking.

Please visit this adorable Etsy store and tell me what you'd choose. Help me support another Mom and get a chance to win $25!  Wouldn't that be handy this time of year?

P.S. If you're a Mom with a business, have you checked out my great advertising special?

So, my tip for too-short haircuts?  BOWS and such! For more great tips, visit Works for Me Wednesday!

Oh I LOVE the crocheted beanies!! TOO CUTE

Phyllis@Aimless Conversation said...

Bring on the TUTU's...or the corker hair bows! Love those.

My daughter is resistant too. At three yrs old, I thought we'd get past it, but now she tells me, "I don't WANT to be pretty!!" *sigh*

Saph @ Walk With Me said...

Ooo so cute!!! I love the Crochet Beanie with Flower Clip!

Ashley @ mrs007.com said...

the practical side of me would choose a set of 8 Small Tuxedo Hair Clips. But I LOVE the tutu's too much!

Tammy said...

Cute store....I'm afraid my 7 year old princess would love the tutu dress. Or the pink skull and crossbones key chain. Her tastes go broad!

Amber, That's Me! said...

I would like the turq. and brown key fob! I just have a boy, so I would love to order up some hair bows or one of those adorable little hats for a new little family member in CA. Your little one is cute with her hair!!! My little sister was always called a boy when she was little! Thanks for the chance

ispeakbeanish said...

I'd probably get the You Pick Monogrammed bow Beanie in either plum or rose pink. Don't know yet what color bow. That will take some more thinkin'.

The toddler do is ADORABLE!

Rosie and Derek said...

I love the crochet beanie with the scarlet red flower, it would be perfect for the holidays! Hope I win!

LifeAtTheCircus said...

I love the fall mini bow clips! They'd be so cute on my girls!
BTW I had a similar hair stylist cut my daughter's hair last year.... I just wanted her bangs trimmed and her hair trimmed a bit so it wasn't all ratty looking. I wanted to cry when she was done... it did grow finally, but I must confess when I look back at pictures, they still make me sad... "her poor hair," I say!
So I can relate to those tears shed on her curls!

Loralynn said...

I love the pink and black korkers! They'd be so cute in my Daughter's hair!

Debbie said...

I just have to be different and say I love the pirate key fob. Cute stuff.

birrrd said...

LOVE the holiday ribbon hair clips and the key fobs. Too cute and great prices. Thanks!

Valarie said...

So do you think I could get the 14 year old and 18 year old to wear ribbons and bows like this again!!! Those are so stinkin cute! I like the woven headbands, and the beanie cap things, and the little hair clips. :)

Muthering Heights said...

Most definitely a tutu. I...erm, I mean Bootsie Baby has always wanted one!

Cecelia said...

The tutu dress is too, too cute!!! I'd pony up difference for my little princess.

AmyG said...

Hats & bows?? My almost 3 yr old would be in heaven! She has some amazing stuff there! And I think your little one's hair cut is adorable!

philologia said...

I adore the pink flower clippies. They are the most perfect hairthing I've ever seen.

Mommy Mary said...

I love the woven headbands, and the simple ties with the long ribbons

Poppyseed said...

Oh my goodness! Sugar 'n Spice would look adorable in almost everything I saw. :) Would it help me to win if I promise to spend over the $25 prize??? I especially loved the beanies!

KrustyTheCat said...

Your daughter is so adorable!!!
I would love love the Holiday ribbon clips, these ones: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=17179481

They are so cute! I might have to order them myself if I don't win ;o)

Miss Vicki said...

Oh ! How CUTE ! I love love love the beenies and since my girlies are a bit older, I think the black and pink corkers would look so darned cute in their hair....but just imagine how cute bunches of those little bittie bows would look!

Jane Anne said...

I love the itty bitty bows -all of them- but especially the blue and brown ones. My little girl turns 1 on Monday and her hair is just getting long enough for bows!

Lori said...

LOVING the fun fall ribbon clips!

Heidi S said...

My favorite is the beanie with the bottle cap monogram. So cute as my peanut still doesn't have enough hair at 2 years old for the clips!

stacywhite said...

A tutu for me too, please!

Naomi said...

I would choose the 'Set of 6 Fun Trendy Ribbon Hair Clips' in pink and the blue and brown key fob key chain. I also love the infant beanie in pink. Adorable!

Mommyhood is Thankless said...

Custom Princess Tutu With Matching Hair Bow is what I would get, I love tutus!

mommyhoodisthankless{AT}gmail.com

Tree Climbing Mom said...

The fall color hair bows would be great for my daughter. I think I'd have to pick up a key chain for myself, too!

Adrienne S. said...

I love the crochet beanie with the scarlet flower!
aeshuron@twcny.rr.com

One More Equals Four said...

Soooo cute! Love the keychains and the clippies and ALL the hair bows

Jen @ Mommay's Mayhem said...

Ok, loved those beanies so much I bought one! The one with the M bow on it!

I'd love any of the other colored beanies too!

Sallie said...

My 16 month old has the same cut. I'm not loving it either!

I'm a sucker for tutus. That gets my vote.

Christina said...

Oooh - I like the ribbon clips! Great advertising b/c even if I don't win...I think I just found some Christmas presents!!

World's Greatest Mommy said...

I love the chocolate crocheted beanie with the gerber daisy. I think my daughter would go nuts over this. She's so into accessories, it's sad.

For this year's Christmas ornaments, she picked one out that has shoes, hats, and purses all over it. And she's only two...

Anonymous said...

I LOVE LOVE the infant crochet beanies!! soo cute! I couldn't pick one in particular I love them all.

Stacia said...

I love the pony o's and all the clippies, great store! Thanks for the chance!

nikkit3 said...

I would definitely purchase a bow holder, and as many hair bows as possible b/c it seems like ours are disappearing around here???? LOL!!!! Maybe the hair bow holder/organizer would help with that:-)

Rachel@just another day in paradise said...

totally loving the toddler hair bows in the twist format. totally loving etsy this christmas season. . .(and totally loving giveaways in general.) : )

Gina said...

I love that she has hair clip HOLDERS, too! Love the organization. Thanks for doing the giveaway.

Cassondra said...

How can you choose?!?!?! I love them all. Pink and Black Korkers, Pink and White Mini Korkers, Toddler Twist Hair Bows, and the Pink Flower Clippies are just a few of my favorites!!

momto3cubs said...

It looks like a very cute haircut in the second photo :)

I gradually learned how to trim my boys' hair by myself, since the professional haircuts were often disappointing or shocking.

Audrey said...

What a fun etsy shop to browse! My two daughters would like the ribbon clippies (the trendy ones or holiday ones) and would utterly enjoy a tutu.

Thanks!

Jeni said...

What hard decisions!! I would definitely get the trendy holiday bows, and probably the white & pink korker bows. But I would probably change my mind about 15 times, because they're all so cute!!

Shannon said...

All of the crochet beanies are too cute. I love them all. With three little girls we have bows and pony tail holders all over the house.

Kelly said...

oooooooohhhhh so darling! Everything is cute, but what would she actually keep in? The ribbon clips with the no slip grip sound perfect, one of each pattern. I will def be getting some of these for stocking stuffers, but hopefully I can win some!

C said...

I like the hairbands. I also like the Christmas bows. I like it ALL!

Jennie said...

Missy Hoohaw always sports a pixie. It suits her face, but I hate to tell you that unless she's wearing obviously girlie gear, she is frequently called "he."

And those crocheted beanies are adorable! I love the gerber daisies.

Stephanie said...

I love the ribbon clips. My girls were around 2 before they grew any hair and the hair they grew was so fine nothing would stay in it. But those little ribbon clips look perfect. Not too fussy for everyday, but better than letting their hair hang in their faces. And we have an 8 month old girl who, I'm sure, will follow in her sisters footsteps.

mommy meme said...

absolutely everything! But my daughter has loose anagen of childhood hair, which basically means she doesn't have enough barbs in her hair to make her hair strong, so she has to keep her hair short and can't put anything in it. Have any of you ever experienced this? Our dermatologist said she most likely will grow out of it (she is 6). But she is putting together boxes for operation Christmas child at her school and if we won she would donate the bows and clips! So pretty!

Jenny said...

I like the crochet beanie with bow clip or the flower clip, and the ribbon covered alligator clips. BTW, I think your little Pixie looks adorable!!

My daughter had her hair cut for Locks of Love this summer (12") and I thought her Dad was going to cry during the process! We really do get attached to hair, don't we?!

Suzie said...

Her hair looks so cute!

rebekahdawn said...

Thank you so much for sharing this store! The crocheted hat with the peony clip is EXACTLY what I've been looking for for my daughter. I saw something like it about a year ago on a baby and have been looking ever since or trying to figure out how to make my own. Adorable little store...I'm going to have to order from her!

I like the sets--the 7 Itty Bitty toddler bows and the 6 Small Twist bows.

And I've got three girls to put them on :-)

msumommie said...

Love the crochet beanie with flower clip! Adorable!

Mr. and Mrs. Nurse Boy said...

My question is what don't I like on that site?! I am a sucker for hair bows on my Sweet Pea! I think the pink flower bows might be my favorite, but that tutu is beautiful!

Mrs. Nurse Boy

Robin said...

Beautiful, adorable items in her store, but I don't think my boys would wear any of them! I do love the Pink and Brown dot key chain though!

Chanelle said...

It looks so cute! And bows are always wonderful!

Baby Mama said...

what a beautiful baby girl you have!

Tiaras and Timeouts said...

BOWS, bows, and more bows! I 2 girls of my own and 2 friends who have girls on the way!!

Katie said...

I would totally get:

Set of Black and White Mini Korkers
A Set of 5 Fun Fall Bitty Hair Bows
Set of Fun Trendy Ribbon Hair Clips
and a bunch of other stuff!

Thanks for the great giveaway!

Grateful for Grace said...

Wow! Tough call. Probably the tutu skirt and some clips OR a couple of beanies and some clips.
Very pretty stuff!

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

First - there is no way your adorable little pixie could be mistaken for a boy. She is darling.

I LOVE the flower clips, the headbands...ok, basically everything. I am bookmarking her site now and I will definitely be doing some shopping over there! Thanks so much for featuring other moms who are running such great businesses.

Mom2three said...

I love the tutu skirt, but what really appeals to me is the bow holder! Why haven't I thought of that? Mine would never be so cute though. We were always losing bows!

Lynn said...

Oh.My.Goodness!!! This site rocks! I LOVE the holiday hair clips and the bows. I may be doing some shopping here even if I don't win the $25...but I hope I do!

Tammy said...

It's all so cute, I couldn't choose just one!

The Bottolfini's said...

One of the cutest kids I have ever seen. I'm in love!

Lora Lynn @ Vitafamiliae said...

Love the crocheted beanies with the big daisies. And I"m a sucker for a tutu!

Christy said...

Absolutely the Chocolate Crochet Beanie with Flower Clip and some ribbon clippies. How adorable! Thanks for introducing us to Ally!

Mishababy said...

Would totally love the crocheted beanies for my baby cousins! So adorable!!

Jodie said...

We just my little girls hair pretty short too - too short for a pony tail (but still long enough for low pigtails!!) I WANT those headbands badly! And I like the ribbon streamer ponytail holders too. Cuteness.
[pick me!]

This Mama's Hood said...

The Christmas clips and bows are all so adorable I couldn't pick just one set to be my favorite. I love them all! Not to mention they would almost all go in one way or another with the holiday dresses and things that I have bought for my daughter. Oh I hope I win!

soubra mama said...

i love the tutu dresses. i can see my daughter running around barefoot in one of those . . wielding one of her big brothers' play swords, of course. :)

MaggieLousMommy said...

I LOVE the crochet beanies! I'm sure my toddler would refuse to wear it, so I want one in my size!

misty said...

i have plenty of neices on both sides that i would buy LOTS of bows... bows in every colors! the little beenie hats are SUPER cute too!

Heather said...

Her haircut is adorable!!

I only have stepsons, but they have many girl cousins who would love the beautiful hair clips! My favorite (and probably theirs too) are the pink and chocolate ribbon clips.

Musings of a Homeschooling Mom said...

I love her haircut! It is adorable! I love all of the bows! The beanies are adorable, too! I could spend a fortune on my baby girl!

Tara said...

Oh I love the white tutu dress sooo cute.. I also love the Crochet Beanie with Scarlet Red Flower.

Russ and Julie Darr said...

My 2 year old daughter thinks that pink is the most magical color. I think she would love the pink and white mini korkers, and I think I could talk her into the pink and black ones, too. The Christmas hair bow is adorable, too!

aggiemomof2 said...

I am all about the princess tutu and matching hairbow. My daughter would have a blast and think they make for adorable pictures!

Jessica D. said...

You daughters hair looks cute!
I'd choose the holiday clips, also the head band they are cute too!

Just Me said...

The custom Princess tutu would go over with happy screams at my house.

Domestic Accident said...

I'm partial to short hair on little girls. Too cute (not to mention practical).

Cheri-Beri said...

I LOVE her hair!! My daughter had that type of haircut from about 4 - 7. I've been trying very hard for her to get it cut again for the last 3+ years. Nope, not gonna happen.

I, too, love short hair on little girls :-)

Jenn said...

Love the beanies!

D... said...

The beanies are great. I'm sure my 14 yr. old would actually love it too.

Your toddler's 'do looks precious. But, yeah, I'm sure you are going to have to deal with her being called a he. Bah.

kristine said...

I love the tutus but my absolute fave is the Set of 4 Ribbon Clips In Pink and Chocolate. So cute!!

kristinemjones at homtail dot com

Gigi said...

My little ones hair is so fine that I can't keep anything in it... yet. Like you, I'm determined that she will be a "bow head" one day!

Until then I will dream about the little camo bows and the pink and black korkers.

By the way your little pixie is adorable!

mama hall said...

Oh her haircut is adorable! I think she'd look supercute in the soft White crochet beanie with a Lavender crochet flower.

judybrittle said...

What a great store. I love all the tutus and I really like the Sherbert Breeze Woven Headband. Thank you so much!

RebekahC said...

Your daughter is adorable! And thanks for featuring this great site. I'm always looking for new hair goodies for my girls, and I just love the blue set of the Fall Trendy Ribbon Clippies. They'd go great with my 5 year old's school uniform.

Jami said...

I love, love, love the crocheted beanies. Now, how adorable would our little girls look in those?

Dallimomma said...

I would really like the crocheted headband for my granddaughter. I would pick pinks and browns because she has a lot of those colored outfits. thanks.

kristen@nosmallthing said...

I'd choose the lavender crochet beanie...it would look SO cute on my little redhead!

Really pretty stuff!

I love the Crochet Beanie with Scarlet Red Flower!!
