"It seems to be the fashion nowadays for a girl
to behave as much like a man as possible.
Well, I won't!
I'll make the best of being a girl and be as nice as a specimen as I can:
sweet and modest, a dear, dainty thing with clothes smelling all sweet and violety,
a soft voice, and pretty, womanly ways.
Since I'm a girl, I prefer to be a real one!"
~ Mrs. George de Horne Vaizey, Author (1857-1917)
I love that God created me to be a woman! I love lace, long flowing skirts, the smell of roses and all things floral and feminine! However, when it comes to hair, I can sometimes be dull. When you have long locks, it is easy to get into the ponytail rut! This is why I was thrilled when Hannah offered me the opportunity to try a few Lila Rose Hair Accessories
and to host a giveaway on this very blog! The winner will be entitled to pick her favorite hair product from the Lila Rose line and is open to readers around the world (since Lila Rose ships worldwide!)! Giveaway is now closed.
My daughter and I both chose a piece to call our own. There are so many beautiful hair accessories that it was hard to decide! There are flex-clips (shown in photos), hairbands, ornamental bobby pins, hair-sticks and much more! There is something for everyone as Lila Rose offers products to compliment both long and short hair.
I prefer the old-fashioned, romantic and/or artisan style pieces while my daughter loves the antique, western look. There are so many styles to choose from! Which is your favorite?
I was also impressed with the quality. These are not your typical plastic/breakable hair accessories! They are durable and strong and will hold piles of hair if that has been a problem for you in the past. The Lila Rose Website even shares video tutorials to help you prepare the loveliest of hairstyles! It also offers a short video to determine which size is necessary for your hair if you desire the flex-clip (which is what we chose).
""I reckon maybe, if you don't mind, I'd like to fix your hair just a little before I let you see it," she proposed. "May I fix your hair, please?"
"Why, I--suppose so, if you want to," permitted Mrs. Snow, grudgingly; "but 'twon't stay, you know."
"Oh, thank you. I love to fix people's hair," exulted Pollyanna, carefully laying down the hand-glass and reaching for a comb. "I sha'n't do much to-day, of course--I'm in such a hurry for you to see how pretty you are; but some day I'm going to take it all down and have a perfectly lovely time with it, she cried, touching with soft fingers the waving hair above the sick woman's forehead.
For five minutes Pollyanna worked swiftly, deftly, combing a refractory curl into fluffiness, perking up a drooping ruffle at the neck, or shaking a pillow into plumpness so that the head might have a better pose. Meanwhile the sick woman, frowning prodigiously, and openly scoffing at the whole procedure, was, in spite of herself, beginning to tingle with a feeling perilously near to excitement."
