{Review & Giveaway} My Genavie



I was so excited when Kristen, from My Genavie, contacted me about doing a review and giveaway of her Etsy shop.  Her stuff is so cute!  She offers headbands (from newborn to adult sizes), bobby pins, brooch or hair clips, and bib necklaces.  

Here are some of my favorites:


Kristen was kind enough to send me this adorable headband and bobby pin clips for review: 



Cute, right?!  Now I just hope we are having a little girl because I'm already dreaming about the adorable newborn pictures we could get with that purple headband.  Love it!

The headband seems nice and sturdy, yet should be comfortable for baby.  There is felt covering the back of the flower portion, so there will be nothing poking baby there.  It's very well put together!  The clips seem very sturdy, too.  They were easy to use and did a good job of holding my hair back.  I love that there is a set for both mommy and the little one.  So sweet!

Kristen really does a great job putting her pieces together.  You can tell she puts a lot of time and hard work into it.  Check out her shop to see what other beautiful pieces she has created!

Giveaway:

She has also been kind enough to offer a giveaway for my readers!  One lucky winner will receive a headband of their choice (up to $18.00 value) and any set of bobby pins (up to $6.50 value)!  If you're interested in winning, please leave a comment for each entry.  If your email address is not listed in your profile, please post it in your first entry.   Mandatory entries must be completed first.
