Ambrey's Accessories - Review and Giveaway!

Hello there!  I'm back again with another fantastic review and giveaway!

First of all, let me introduce you to my plight.  My daughter has beautiful hair.  Beautiful, curly, thick hair.  Beautiful, always-in-her-eyes, sticking-out-everywhere hair.  Finding good quality hair accessories at affordable prices has become somewhat of a quest for me.  

On any given day, you can find my daughter looking like this:

Or, frightningly enough, like this:

Now do you see why hair accessories are so important to me?

Now comes Rachel, the talented mommy behind Ambrey's Accessories.  In an attempt to outfit her daughter with a vast array of hair accessories that weren't limited by either a headband OR clip, she developed her own system for making them interchangeable.  I know, you're probably thinking "it's just a hair-bow".  And you are so very mistaken.  This is so much more than a hair-bow.

Let me introduce you to the cast of characters:
One Ribbon-Covered Clip
One Lace Headband

One Lavender Daisy with Rhinestone Center

One Pink Bow with Rhinestone and Flower Center

 Pretty cute, right?  Now, go back and look at that headband and clip again (don't worry, I'll wait).  Do you see the tiny silver embellishment?  Any guesses what that is?  You're right, poppets, it's a SNAP!  Those tiny snaps correspond to these tiny snaps:


 Have you made the connection?  YES!  Each item (flower, bow, etc) is detachable!  Can you just see the doors opening in the world of accessorizing??  You are no longer limited to wearing only what comes with the clip or headband.  With Ambrey's Accessories, you can mix and match your favorite accessories with the wearing method of your choice.  And, I'll let you in on a little secret...they work great for mommies too!
 In addition, each delicate snap is not glued but sewn on, for added durability.

Are you impressed?  I know I am.  And, guess what?  Rachel has offered to give one lucky reader a Basic Starter Pack from Ambrey's Accessories.  This includes one headband and two accessories of their choice.

  2. Awesome hunnie:)

    Your baby looks so gorgeous with and without accessories :)


  3. Aw man, I can't imagine choosing just one of any of those! lol They all look so awesome. :) Your daughter looks absolutely gorgeous in those. I can see why you want to have user-friendly accessories. :) I think the amazing navy blue bow and the white pearl blessing bows are my favs, but I'm weird like that. :P

  4. First of all, A is TOOOOOOO CUTE! The hair accessories look awesome on her! Secondly, I went to her site and I LOVE the Ivory Gerber Daisy! Oh gosh, Houdini would look ADORABLE in that!

  10. I posted about this giveaway on FB!

  11. I would like to see tutus some day from her, I think they'd be CA-UTE!!

  12. The very last one is adorable :) I wonder if you have sizes for older children??? Even if i dont win how much would it be to purchase two of these???

  13. Our baby girl has long curly, unruly hair and we don't want to cut it. The only answer is cute accesories

  14. I love the 6 pack of alligator clip bows. They would be perfect for my step-brother to put in Maidalyn's hair.

  15. I think that it would be great if she made polka dot bows for the clips for everyday wear!

  16. I became a fan of Ambrey's Accessories on Facebook...and, invited 13 of my friends to be a fan, too!

  17. my favorite items are any of the felt flowers. so cute! hir06005@byui.edu

  18. and i can't figure out how to "heart" something, but when i do, i will heart the shop!

  19. i would love to see more felt items! i think they are so cute. maybe different shapes, like hearts, or a bird, butterfly, letters for names, etc!

  20. Okay, I am such a sucker for the big flowers and I adore Gerber daisies so I loved alllll of those. It's really hard to narrow it down to just one but I think I'd have to go with the "hot cherry" gerber daisy. So cute!

  21. I could've sworn I was already following you but I guess not! I am now!

  22. I LOVE Ambrey's Accessories!!! My favorite item is the black tulle bow--or "puff." I love it!
