The cutest headbands for you and baby....and a chance to win one!


     My little girl is 9 months old and was born with a full head of hair. However, as month after month went by, her baby hair fell out and the new growth has taken its own sweet time to come in..... so no hair clips for us yet. I am not one who likes putting bows and flowers the size of my baby's head on her head, so when I came across Natalie's Etsy store, Bella Fleur, her sweet headbands caught my attention. Natalie pairs rosettes and flowers with pearls, rhinestones, and feathers in feminine and chic combinations that would make any mom want to borrow them from her daughter. In fact, I'm wearing one right now :).










     Natalie says, "I am a stay at home mom with a 3yr old boy and a 13 month old baby girl. My little girl is who inspired me to start creating headbands, as I absolutely love dressing her up. I am having so much fun coming up with new designs to compliment any outfit!"

     Bella Fleur is a relatively new store but it's doing extremely well. I'm sure its success is in part due to Natalie's craftsmanship. I am impressed by how well made her headbands are. All raw edges are hidden, and she even covers the spot where the flower is attached to the headband with felt so it won't scratch baby's head. I can attest to the durability of these delicate looking headbands too, since I found my daughter trying to yank a flower off one. Luckily, it was still in perfect condition after the abuse. Below are some pictures before we used them. You can see that they would make great gifts too!



     Natalie's headbands don't just look good, they fit great too. I received these in size 6months-24months. However, both my daughter and I are able to use them. You can see in the pictures they are not loose on her, nor tight on me. She also doesn't protest when I put them on her, so they must be comfortable. They are nice and soft on me too (I suffer from headaches if headbands are too tight). I also use them as hair ties for ponytails and buns. I love that we can both wear them!


 


     These headbands are so pretty, comfortable, and versatile. There are so many stores selling headbands right now that it's hard to know which to buy from. After this review, you should feel more than comfortable purchasing from Bella Fleur. 

You have a chance to win a headband of your choice from Bella Fleur!

Love the headbands! So cute! Too bad my hair is too short right now. And, since I have a son, I don't think he'd appreciate me putting them on him.

Stopping by from Bloggy Moms!

GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS BANDS! I understand the frustration with one of my twins, who is a baldie. People think she is a boy if I don't put something in her hair. Most bands she hates, but these look mighty light-weight and comfortable. I might be able to trick her:)

They are stunning! I love all the bands, I don't know which I would choose, but I'd have to buy another! I definitely would go for the double bowed peach band. It would go with most of their summer wardrobe.

Liking you on FB now, I GFC you already, liking Bella Fleur on FB now to. I love the pacifier clips and the my 1st backpack in her ETSY store.

Many thanks for the opportunity.

Hugs, Shelly
