In Honor Of Cuteness {GIVEAWAY & DISCOUNT}

We had a Christmas miracle come early in our house when earlier this month, Gabrielle and Alaina decided they would sit still to get their hair done.  It's such a relief knowing that they go out and about with cute hairdos now, instead of with the bed-head-like mullets they were sporting for a while when just a glimpse of the brush sent them into massive hysterics.  Thank you baby Jesus for understanding the importance of good hair.

Always one to push my luck, I decided to order some headbands to see if the girls' newfound appreciation for accessories would extend to them too.  I'm a huge a fan of the fabulous blog In Honor Of Design and knew that Anna, the lovely lady behind it, also has an Etsy store so I headed over to check it. There were so many sweet headbands to choose from that I was overwhelmed by the cuteness!  The Little Miss Lovely style was the first to catch my eye.


But the Little Miss Tweet is just darling too.


And the Little Miss Schoolgirl is perfect for the holidays.


The stretchy designs are so fun too.  Just look at the Little Miss Polka Dot!


But what really blew me away were the prices.  Nothing I posted above is more than $6!  Can you believe it?  Considering I had no idea whether Gabrielle and Alaina would even wear headbands, I was taking a risk ordering, but for $12, I was okay with it.

When my two choices arrived in the mail, I was so impressed with the quality!  The headbands aren't only adorable but they're also really really well-made.  To my pleasant surprise, the girls loved them but they also loved to pull them out and throw them around.  The fact that they're still holding up weeks later after being put to the test by two toddlers is impressive.  And look at how fabulous they are!  Here's Alaina modeling her Modern Circles headband.


(Excuse the potty seat but we just got it yesterday and both girls have decided it's their new TV-watching spot.  Lovely, right?)  Let's get back to her headband - I adore how the ribbon, felt and button look together.


And here's Gabrielle showing off the Little Miss Tweet style.


In Honor of Design carries accessories for ladies of all ages.  From newborns:


To moms:


There's something for everyone.  I know Gabrielle and Alaina would love these Flower hair elastics that can double as bracelets.


And I love this Lock & Key necklace:


The best part?  I could buy two of the flower elastics and the necklace for just $15!  I told you the prices were great!

For being well-made, well-priced and super super cute, the accessories from In Honor of Design are going on our HOLIDAY GIFT PICK list. 


If you're looking for a little something as a gift or stocking stuffer for a lady or little miss in your life, you know where to look!
