I have to give props to my new friend, @tinym, for guiding me through the big switch to WordPress. She was extremely helpful when I was completely clueless about cnames, host servers, and file managers. Please see her sites at tinym.com, slightlymore.tinym.com and tinymeme.com. She totally rocks!

“My daughter has crazy hair that runs on the thin side and tends to stick up all over the place. So when I stumbled upon the best site ever the other day, Tiny Star Couture, I was elated. Even more so when I found out they were looking for reviewers! I spoke with Erika and she sent me the most adorable purple Lillian hat. The presentation of this product upon delivery was super nice. It comes in this cute purple mesh bag, which my daughter promptly turned into a purse to tote her Hot Wheelz around in.
The hat is a soft crochet and can easily fit any head size (their website says their hats fit girls from 1-8 years old). The bow is hand sewn and glued to a clip that can be removed from the hat, depending on my two year old temperament. The hat is perfect for days when I don’t want to wrangle with Roo to put her hair into ponytails. I can just slap the hat on her head and she’s the cutest girl on the block. What I loved most was how girlie the hat was and how everything on their site is geared towards the girl (okay Mom) that loves to accessorizes.”
“I love little girl hair clips! For a mom like me that lacks talent in hairstyling, hair clips and clippies are the ultimate coverup for a bad hairdo! All you have to do is clip on a fabulous bow, and ….. TaDah! All is glamorous and your daughter looks fantastic! I ran across Tiny Star Couture (listed at Mom Made That!), and knew that you had to see these products. Erika at Tiny Star Couture generously gave us the opportunity to review their Kayla beanie. Expertly handcrafted, this beanie looked fantastic on my daughter! It wasn’t thin and delicate, it was thick and durable. Now, I’m not about to let her go romping around in the backyard with it on, but only because it’s so cute that I couldn’t bear to see it dirty. The ribbon detail is sewn in to prevent slipping. My 6 year old, Kylie, loves this hat and wants to wear it all the time. The sizes for the beanies say fits 1-8 year olds, but I would say that the sizing is a tad small. My 6 year old could wear it, but my eight year old wasn’t close. Maybe my girls have big heads!:) If that’s the case, we all know where they got those from…. Tiny Star Couture has the cutest accessories for your little princess. Be sure and check out their limited edition clips. Their Limited Edition Elephant Clip looks like a great birthday gift for my niece.”
I have received quite a response from this request, and I want to thank A Mother’s Boutique, SimaG Jewelry, Overall Beauty, Chic Mommy USA, Coquette Bath and Wonderful Wonderbar for donating samples, products, and more. I cannot wait to show you off at BlogHer!

Oh, and guess what I realized? I’ll be spending my birthday at BlogHer! (July 23rd) What a great place to celebrate a birthday! Maybe I’ll make use of that 20% off tattoo special.
