Post image for Adorable Onesies, Bibs, and More from The Layered Life on Etsy!!

All you that have read my reviews over the last few years know that subtlety isn’t my thing- I am sort of the go big or go home kinda girl. That is in pretty much everything I do that has to do with my girls. I love the over the top- the fascinator- the stand out in the crowd. For the most part my girls are all into it, they love the top hats with feathers, the extra poofy tutus, a little glitter here, lace there- you know what I’m talking about. Sometimes though, my girls just want something a little more simpler. Instead of a facinator, maybe just a cute clip, instead of the extra poofy tutu, maybe just an embellished tee. I have 2 girls so as I have mentioned previously with all these new babies popping up around me, it is seriously hard not to catch baby fever. Thankfully there are plenty of sweet nieces and nephews around for me to spoil- and lets face it- you know they are all going to be show stoppers if I have anything to say about it! I came across this sweet little Etsy shop called The Layered Life. They have some really adorable onesies that are anything but the plain, simple ones you find in stores- hand dyed, handpainted and sewn onesies, tutus, bow ties (for dogs and babies) and bandana bibs! All are so adorable you are sure to fine something that you love! I was so excited to be able to review a few of their items and let you guys see how awesome they are!! [click to continue…]


Post image for Seriously Sweet Baby Girls Clothes from Truffles Ruffles Review and Giveaway!!

When my oldest daughter was born, I had this thing against girly girly clothing- I don’t know maybe because growing up I was a huge tomboy! I hated anything girly, frilly, or pink! So I swore off girly clothes and instead looked for simple gender neutral clothing or hip, funky clothes. Black tees and jeans, or simple white onesies- I even brought her home in a white layette with blue flowers- Ok well, I guess since it had flowers that was a little girlie. As she got older my taste started to change a little- I still hadn’t evolved into ruffles or over the top headbands but instead of a white onesie or black tee I chose hot pink or purple. By the time my youngest was born, it was a wrap- the bigger the hair bow the better, the more over the top the more I had to have it! She had super sensitive skin, so it not only had to over the top it had to be comfy as well. Animal and other fun prints had taken the place of the plain tees and jeans, and she was hardly ever seen without a big bow. Looking back I just wish I had done the same with my oldest! Oh how I wish that I had known about Truffles Ruffles when my girls were smaller! They have the over the top hair bows, sweet layettes, and adorable sets that I absolutely LOVE!! Truffles Ruffles has the comfort, style and fun that I absolutely adore! I was super excited to be able to review a gorgeous set from Truffles Ruffles! We received for our review the GORGEOUS Leopard Heart Romper with matching hat! [click to continue…]


Vintage and Virtue on Etsy Review!

Post image for Vintage and Virtue on Etsy Review!

The first time I fell in love with Etsy, several years ago, my taste was pretty simple- everything vintage style and shabby chic. While my taste has evolved over the years to encompass many more styles, I stay true to my first fashion love! There is just something amazing about taking something old and adding it to something modern that I just adore! With my girls it is usually dresses or hairpieces, a bit of vintage lace here, a vintage button there- I simply can’t resist! Since all of my closest friends seem to be having babies- what kind of auntie would I be to keep all this sweetness to myself! With tons of baby showers in the future, I find myself right back here where my obsession all began- Vintage sweetness for the nieces and nephews to come! Where else to find some of the most adorable vintage finds than Etsy? I don’t know of any other site that has more to offer. When I came across Vintage N Virtue I knew it was right up my alley! Modern designs with touches of vintage – exactly what I was looking for! I was so excited to be able to review one of their adorable boys pieces: [click to continue…]
