According to L Review & {GIVEAWAY} + DISCOUNT



When I came across Liz's shop, According to L, I knew I had found a new favorite shop.
Why? Because her shop is full of absolutely gorgeous items for both Momma & daughter. Items that I can't live without, hehe.

Like this gorgeous headband...
Coral Sakura Filigree Metal Headband
And when I heard her story I fell even more in love.

I’ve always been a little crafty; I’ve made scrapbooks, cards, invitations and announcements, and once my 1st daughter was born, that little thing called “free time” seemed to disappear. When my second was born, I was determined to find a hobby again to keep me sane, but being that my world still revolved around my kids, the projects were always geared on creating something cute for them.

I dabble in blogging and after writing a few “DIY” posts for headbands and flowers my friends encouraged me to sell the stuff. I did some research for supplies and costs and decided to set a goal of breaking EVEN within 6 months. I hired Shay Bocks to design my logo (which I LOVE) and off I went into the Etsy world. I opened my shop in August 2011 and by the end of October, I’d cut myself my first “pay check.” I had not only met my goal, but was actually PROFITABLE! Who knew?!

My business plan was simple. Make cute things that could fit into every day life. So many shops feature super cute, super elaborate photo props, and I have some product that fit that niche, I also wanted to offer stuff for the every day kid, as well as the mom – thus the headbands and bobby pins.

Day-old hair can still be cute. No one needs to be the wiser that you hopped out of bed, got the kids ready and had 4 minutes to change out of sweats before going out the door. Lip gloss and a good headband can go a long way!

Life is hard. Look fabulous anyway.


LOVE her motto!
And boy is she right; as a mom of two I find myself many days not doing my hair or even showering for that matter (secrets out). But of course I still love to look cute. And fact is day old hair "poofs" better anyway. So why not poof it and throw a boppy pin in or toss on a headband.

And with boppy pins like these you definitely can be cute
(even if you didn't have time to wash your hair)

And thank goodness Liz was so kind to send me this gorgeous headband so I can rock the day old hair, no makeup and all.


and isn't it adorbs!?!?
I absolutely squealed when I saw it. And you can't beat the $10 it sales for.

In fact almost all of her items are $10 or less.
A shop YOU can afford!
DOUBLE SCORE.

How about her awesomely adorable rings

And of course don't forget the little girls

Valentine Vintage Cranberry/Gold Headband

I just love this one...
Vintage Cream Ivory Ruffle with Rhinestone Trim Newborn Infant Girl Elastic Headband
 And how about these colors, so cute

Neon Rainbow Shabby Chic Lace Infant Newborn Girl Headband

Not only did she send me the super gorgeous headband I showed above; she also was so generous to send Emma a super cute headband & me some of her wristband hair ties so as you're running out the door you can slip one on your wrist to pull your hair back later.


Isn't it the most adorable headband. Nothing like adding a little extra flair with the feather & veiling. The headband is so nicely put together. Despite Emma's pulling at the feather & veiling it stayed put.
And like everything else in her shop not only is it adorable it's priced reasonable at just $9

I also just LOVE the hair ties she sent. How cute & yet fashionable.


But, I must say the best part about her shop are the prices. Some serious cuteness at some AWESOME prices.

And now she's offering
