Things I <3 Thursdays {Bella's Bowtique - win a free headband!}

It pretty much makes my day when I get a little tip or hint that makes my life easier/happier/awesome-er in some way.  So that got me thinking...  Why not share the little (and big) things that make my life happy.  The things I love.  Enter: Things I <3 Thursdays

I'm just going to come out and say it: my kids have big heads.  Like, BIG heads.  So much that I think my 7 year old son has just now, finally grown into his.  How is this relevant?  Just wait, I'm getting there.  

In case you don't know all about my personal life, we welcomed a sweet baby girl into our family in March (kiddo numero cuatro).  It had been a little over 9 years since we'd had a girl and I was SO excited to play dress up with all my newborn headbands (I have a LOT).  Well here's where that whole "my kids have large heads" issue came into play…  I noticed that every single one of the headbands would leave indentations in her poor head…  and I couldn't stand it.  However, there were three that never left marks.  They were super stretchy and soft and yet still stayed in place.  And they were adorable.  As time went on and baby girl's head continued to grow, those three were the only ones I would put on her - as you can see in the pictures below (iPhone images).  Five and a half months later (gulp. tear.) she's still rocking them.

I can't tell you how many people have stopped me to ask where I get my headbands, so now I'm happy to share the goodness with you all - and while we're at it - let's give one away!!  Bella's Bowtique has been so sweet to give away an adorable headband AND is offering a special discount code to all my readers!!  

But first, a bit about the woman behind Bella's Bowtique

"My name is Kristie Stuckel I am a work from home mom. I've been married for 14 years to my high school sweetheart Tom. We have two beautiful girls - a funny and very shy 6 year old girl named Isabella and a fantastically sweet 7th grader named Kaleigh. Both of my girls are my inspirations for the items you will find in my shop.

I started making headbands just for my baby Bella to wear around town. After MANY "ooo's and aww's" I decided to start making them to sell. 

My signature band that Brandilyn is raving about is call the "skinny nylon" band. This band is featured on about 75% of the headband I sell. They are one size fit's all!!! That means mom and baby can wear the SAME headband. They are super duper soft and comfortable. Babies who are fussy about elastic headbands have been known to just adore my skinny nylon headbands. It's like they don't even know they are wearing a headband at all..they are that light weight and soft!

I know you'll love them!"
