One of the many fun parts of being a mommy to a little girl is dressing her up! In addition to the frills and tutus, there are headbands. Mommies, you know what I’m talking about – the headbands with the big flowers. There’s a part of me that finds them a little obnoxious, and then there’s a part of me that loves them! A brand that allows for you to flex your creative muscles, and keep the obnoxious to a minimum is HappiSnappi!
With a simple snap, young girls can choose from a wide variety of snap-on/off floral embellishments that easily attach to the brand’s headbands, knit hats, necklaces, hair clips, and more. Every item has the same snaps, so you can mix and match embellishments with every piece, making the fashion possibilities endless.
The brand isn’t just mix and match – it gives back! The company, created by child therapist Karlee Ohm and her nine-year-old daughter Peyton, donates one hat to a children’s hospital for every hat purchased. Additionally, the mommy/daughter duo teamed up with Sadie Keller, a brave and courageous 9-year-old who is fighting leukemia. In an effort to find a cure by bringing attention to the issue and donating proceeds to her cause, HappiSnappi will donate 50% of online sales to the Sadie Keller Foundation for the remainder of the year.
With the holidays just around the corner, this is a great gift for that special little girl in your life, with the added bonus of having proceeds go to charity. Prices range from $3.50 to $22.50.
I have a bit of a love affair with flowers. I tell everyone, that in my next life I wanna be a florist. If I had the financial means I would quit my job, go back to school for horticulture, open up Sage Florals, and create the most amazing floral arrangements and bouquets. A girl can dream, right?
To keep my flower fury at bay, I daze online at flowers in the meantime. I not too long ago developed an obsession with succulents. By adding these green tendrils to a bouquet, it adds in an extra layer of delicateness, providing for a luscious and soft bouquet. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites to share on this beautiful flower Friday. Enjoy!
I thought a post about my love for flowers would make the most sense on a day like Valentine’s Day.
It all started with wedding planning. Flowers were my favorite part of the planning process, and in doing my flower research on Style Me Pretty (Pinterest had only just been launched, and I was unaware of its presence, huge bummer!) I fell in love with white and black anemones. My color theme was light pink, and I really wanted touches of black so it didn’t look completely like a baby shower for a girl – and thought these would be perfect!
To my disappointment, my florist told me how fragile these flowers are, so much so that two bouquets would need to be made, one for pictures, and one for the ceremony. As much as I loved them, I knew it wasn’t a smart decision to do that, so I had my backup plan – white and black gerbera daisies! They did the trick in my bridesmaids bouquets and in my Chuppah. My florist even wrapped my girls’ bouquets in white and black tulle for the perfect finishing touches!
My husband, being the good egg that he is, sent my Valentine’s Day flowers to work Tuesday of this week so that I would have the entire week to enjoy them, since we have a three day weekend coming up, they would likely be dead by the time I get back to the office:
My love of flowers runs deep, so much so, that for our first wedding anniversary, my husband surprised me with a delivery of 100 roses to my office!
Happy Valentine’s Day! I know it’s really just another day, but if you’re celebrating today, enjoy!
