Sweet Darlin' May, It's Time for Our Giveaway! | Kansas City Lifestyle & Pinup Photographer

Feel Free to listen to She & Him while reading our May Giveaway Blog! :)

I'm so excited for this month's giveaway! :) I LOVE to wear hair bows, flowers, clips, barrets, anything that could help add some style to my super curly hair. Hair accessories have always held a special place on my "feelin' pretty" scale. I could be having the worst day, feeling super cranky and tired, but when I slip that bow into my hair, I immediately feel better and my mood changes. (Yes, that means occasionally you'll spot me wearing jogging pants and a t-shirt with a big old bow on my head ;).

Our Foxy Pinup Girls also love to wear hair accessories! Check out the link to see our Foxy Pinup Girl's adorned with their hair flowers, like Brie in the photo below.

So I got to thinking, for this month's Darlin' May Giveaway, what could I give you guys that says "Happy Spring!" and would also be a pick me up for someone to feel pretty? I immediately went to my head and felt my hair bow! I talked to my friend Brittany Crotsley over at MoveOverCinderella (one of our hair accessory suppliers) and asked her if she could make something to give away to my beautiful Facebook, Twitter, and Blog followers. She got back to me with the following gorgeous items-ALL handmade by Brittany, a super momma, and crafter extrodinaire! Check them out below:

She even made a Bow Holder to keep all your gorgeous prizes on!

The Hair Bow Holder measures at 5 x 7" and the ribbon is long enough to hold all of your hair accessories! I'm so excited because Brittany is making us one to hold all of our Foxy Pinup hair stuff! I am not crafty at all, nor creative in the way of textiles, so I never would have thought of something this awesome. 

(Leopard print is my favorite! :D )
