Bella Fleur {review+giveaway}



Be ready to swoon!  Adorable vintage inspired accessories for little ones {and you too!} from Bella Fleur!


See what I mean?  Seriously. in. love.



What sets Bella Fleur apart from the rest is the quality and unique original designs of Miss Natalie, the wonderful mama to two and creator behind the shop!


I love the way Natalie combines textures and uses unexpected pieces and fabrics together to make her headbands and accessories truly a work of art!  Vintage chic, totally fabulous, and did I mention that Bella Fleur accessories are built to last?


These pretty little things may look dainty and sweet, but underneath that facade is a tough, kid-proof headband that won't fall apart on you.  I don't know about you, but my girls are rather, uh, tough on their hair things.  Tugging and pulling, maybe even trying them on our cats... but Bella Fleur's designs are made with the rough and tumble crowd in mind!! :)




Speaking of my rough and tumbles... they clean up well.  Especially with a little Bella Fleur headband!  Some of you are blessed to know and have babes that have thick flowing hair, but both my baby girls were bald and beautiful for about a year.  Which means for about that long people were calling my her's him's.  I don't take it personally, but I know people feel bad when they make the gender mistake.  {almost as bad as asking when you are due when you are not pregnant?}



Super comfy too!  The colorful rosette headband is nice elastic, so it stretches {it can even fit me!} and keeps its fit without being too constricting, to anyone who wears it!  I love how it screams spring too!!



Can you tell we LOVE it?  Well guess what readers?


The oh so sweet Natalie is offering up a headband of the winner's choice from Bella Fleur to a reader of The Ivy Twines!!  Yay!
