Little More Charming Review

I'm a girly girl. So are my tween nieces. So is my toddler daughter (thank goodness). I am always on the lookout for the newest, trendy, glittery, adorable (you get the point!) girly girl accessories. So when I was contacted by Little More Charming I was obviously thrilled!

I immediately went to browse through their website and loved what I saw. First, the website is pretty to look at, always a plus, it pretty much screams all things glitter! It's also very easy to navigate, which I LOVE in a website.

Here's a bit more about Little More Charming:

Karen Paul founded Little More Charming in 2010 after seeing her tween daughter eager to add fashionable touches to her collection of flip-flops and accessories. The quest for glitter and glam and a tween’s penchant for bedazzling items made Little More Charming a logical answer. Mothers and daughters can have fun personalizing their accessories. Everyone deserves to live a charmed life and to add some sparkle to their style!

Ms. Paul worked in Hollywood, the bling capital of the world, before moving back east to run her family’s successful publishing business. She took a few years off to be a stay-at-home mom prior to launching Little More Charming. Karen Paul lives in Westchester County, New York with her husband and daughter, and a menagerie of pets.

The idea is so clever. A bunch of different items that you can accessorize and make your own with different charms. From bracelets and headbands to wristlets and flip flops....something for everyone! I LOVE products like this because there are so many uses. You could give someone a gift like the Metallic Pink Bracelet with a few charms. Then you could continue to give charms for different occasions....holidays, birthdays, good behavior, report cards, the list is endless. The best part is the charms are less than $ can you beat that?! I could totally see adults loving these products as well. How cute would a tote bag and charms be as bridesmaids gifts or for a honeymoon, a beach bag...I could go on and on!

I was given an adorable purple headband and the pink silicone bracelet. Now, my daughter is a bit too young for these, but she FLIPPED over them. I literally couldn't pry the headband off of her. My tween nieces are going to LOVE these too. I think they are absolutely perfect for them (10 & 12). The charms are extremely easy to slide on and off and come with extra little plastic spacers to place between each charm.

(keep in mind that my little model, Emmy, is only 2 1/2...
but HAD to show you how cute this stuff looks on!)

Head on over to Little More Charming and pick up some holiday gifts...with all of their different products you're sure to find something for those girly girls in YOUR life!

Go say HI to Little More Charming on facebook and twitter....tell them I sent ya! :)

Mama Runs With Scissors Review!

Emmy received many compliments on her adorable little rainbow birthday outfit and I'm so excited to share with you the wonderful etsy shop of Mama Runs With Scissors! I came across Jen's shop a while back and couldn't believe all of her talent and creativity. I was thrilled that she sent me Em's rainbow "E" shirt, rainbow skirt and rainbow leggings for her party....ahhh the cuteness!

When I received the package, I was so pleased with the quality of her work. You can really tell all of the hard work and love she puts into her creations. Everything was packaged neatly and when Em tried it on I literally had to pry it off of her...(and she cried).

((plenty for the boys))

She's worn the shirt and skirt all summer and they have held up wonderfully. I washed them regularly with the rest of our laundry and nothing shrunk, frayed, fell apart, nothing! They look exactly the same as they did the first day. Now that it's almost fall and cooler weather is approaching I can't wait to get those cute little rainbow leggings back on her. They look so great with a jean skirt and are really fantastic for crawlers or potty trainers! (or just for those fashionista girls ;) )

((how adorable is this dress?!))

Jen's shop is FULL of amazing fabrics and outfit combinations. I adore her hip, rock n roll-ish, cutting edge style, different from a lot of the baby and kid stuff you'll find out there. Mama Runs With Scissors has so much to offer, I know you'll love her shop as much as I do. Be sure to check out all of her different sections of her shop...from Kool Kid leggings and onesies to sun hats and tutus!

A huge thank you to the very talented Jen for making Em's birthday so special (and cute)!

Please say "HI!" to Jen on facebook and her blog!

First pic is them in front of THEE Jersey Shore house. (pretty bummed that they painted over the Italian flag) Second pic is them in front the Shore Store. Please notice the "fist pumps" HAHA! Big thanks to my awesome nieces, who felt like complete idiots walking down the boardwalk as Snooki look alikes. I love you girls!! :)

First step: LIKE LeafFilter on Facebook.

Second step: Click "VOTE" under BOTH pics.

THANK YOU SOO MUCH! Need a favor?? Ask me anytime!!
