These Are a Few of My Favorite Lilla Rose Things + Another Giveaway

You may be noticing a theme this week. I haven’t done a good giveaway series since the 12 Days of Christmas in July two years ago now. So when the opportunity to give you all the chance to win some BIG prizes, I jumped on it. I love the blessings that giveaways can be.

Today I am sharing a few of my favorite Lilla Rose items and then there is a big giveaway for $125 in cash via PayPal!

My Favorite Lilla Rose Things

The main product of Lilla Rose is the flexi clip. This unique clip is so flexible and once you master the slight learning curve, it holds all day long. The size I wear most often is the mini because I wear my hair half up a lot.

But Lilla Rose isn’t just about the awesome flexi clip. I recently ordered a hair band (head band) and a set of bobby pins to try. I love them both. The hair band actually stays put, unlike others that I have tried. They usually pop off my head if I happen to move it, which I do often.

The bobby pins are gorgeous! I will admit, I had a hard time spending several dollars on a pair of bobby pins. However, these aren’t tiny like the Goody bobby pins you find in the hair care section of your grocery store. They are over 2 inches long and hold firmly in my hair. I currently have one pair, but intend to buy more.

Enough chit chat, here is a short list of my favorite Lilla Rose things at the moment. I will go left to right, starting with the top row in the graphic.

Be sure to check out all the loveliness that is Lilla Rose. In addition to the flexis, bobbies, and hair bands, they also have hair sticks, you-pins, badge clips, and more.

Holiday Style With Lilla Rose

Holiday Style With Lilla Rose

Lilla Rose is one of those companies I had never heard of before entering the blogging world. I did a giveaway series last year and one of the giveaways was for a Lilla Rose flexi clip that I received to review. After trying it out, I ended up signing up as a consultant because my girls and I loved it.

I’ve accumulated a small collection over the last year and in that time also found the world of Polyvore. Strange segue? Sorry, I’m awkward sometimes.

Polyvore is this fun place where people compile collections of items to make outfits. Kind of like a dream board for fashion. I found them through Pinterest last year when I was filling my New :: Style board with ideas for updating my lacking wardrobe.

Today, I have put the two together and have created some sets built around some Lilla Rose products. You can order them at my Lilla Rose Shop if you find one that strikes your fancy.

First up is Ruby Bouquet, built around the Ruby Bouquet flexi clip.

Next is one that is a little more glitzy, but not terribly flashy. This one features the Lovely Circle Gold bobbies.

Simple Glitz

 

You can check out the rest of my sets on Polyvore, too. I have a few so far.

Please tell me what colors you like to wear during the holiday season! I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.

Don’t forget, you can pick up all of your Lilla Rose needs through my link. 😉 If you have any questions, please let me know!

Leapin’ Lilies – Grand Opening & Giveaway

Leapin' Lilies

Leapin’ Lilies began in 2005. It was my baby, my creative outlet. I started with kid’s clothing, but transitioned to jewelry. I created a line of necklaces I called the Blossom necklaces. They were my favorite pieces to create.

I struggled with building a business for a while until I realized that my timing was off. I had things to learn, a foundation to set with my family and skills to build. So I took a break, keeping my domain names and the dream tucked in my heart.

Right before I took the break that I felt God was leading me to, I made a pin.

It’s a bit rough, but it planted the seed. When I felt the time was right to start Leapin’ Lilies back up, I started playing around with my beads trying to figure out how to make this concept a more, ahem, attractive item.

And then, the Leapin’ Lilies Blossom pin was born.

And that brings us to now. Leapin’ Lilies is re-launching today! To celebrate the grand opening and my birthday, which is this weekend, there is a coupon code on the Leapin’ Lilies Facebook page to save you 29% in our Etsy shop!
