Baby, Giveaway

{giveaway} isla’s favorites

really risa blog giveaway of baby items: solly wrap, sugarplum lane boutique organic baby leggings, boucle d'or fabric headbands, little kate designs leather bow headbands

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about all of the little things Isla and I have that we either love or couldn’t do without (or both!). Sometime soon I will release a post about all the products we rely on daily. For now though, I wanted to share with you four of our favorites and offer them up for a fun giveaway! Three of the four items are just for fun (headbands and a pair of leggings) while the other is a daily must-have for newborn sanity (a fabric baby carrier). Now I know I have a daughter and many of you have sons, but the leggings come in all sorts of boy and unisex fabrics, too, and the headbands will make great gifts for the little ladies in your life (or perhaps for baby number 2, 3 or 10?). Below is a picture of Isla wearing each item and a description of why we love them. At the very bottom you’ll find all the details of the giveaway, too. You must enter by Friday, March 14! Good luck!

little kate designs gold polka dot burlap bow headband giveaway

i was on a hunt for hair pieces for Isla that would stop people from calling her a boy! i tend not to dress her in lots of pink and frills so i guess people get confused. plus, her hair is getting longer by the second so it’s going to need to be tamed pretty soon. i just love these leather and burlap bows by Little Kate Designs. mostly, i love how cute and simple they are and that they don’t take over her whole head. (follow @littlekatedesigns on instagram)

Solly baby wrap giveaway

the Solly Baby Wrap is a serious lifesaver for a cranky baby or for brunching with friends. there are a lot of fabric wraps out there but this one is very lightweight so it’s really comfortable for both baby and me. and on days when the bumblebee just needs to be held we’re not getting overheated, which means it’ll be great for summer, too. it’s also very easy to use and so far she loves it and calms almost immediately. (follow @sollybabywrap on instagram)

sugarplum lane boutique leggings

i am a bit obsessed with baby leggings. and by “a bit” i mean a lot. the organic cotton is really soft on Isla’s sensitive skin and how can you not love all the adorable designs out there? this is my second pair from Sugarplum Lane Boutique and we love them! i can’t wait to add to her collection as she grows. (follow @sugarplumlanebaby on instagram)

Boucledor organic cotton fabric headband

these organic cotton fabric headbands from Boucle D’or Designs are so stinking cute i can’t handle it. they keep isla’s head warm in our freezing cold house and i think they make her look like she’s from the ’50s. oh so stylish. we love them! (follow @boucledordesigns on instagram)

  • Reply Jenna Buchanan March 10, 2014 at 12:17 pm

    I am due with my daughter in June. I have a 20 month old son and while I loved finding little man clothes and accessories for him, I just simply adore baby girl things and have already been shopping around for dresses and accessories. I LOVE those headbands so very much and those little leggings are the sweetest! I would also just be over the moon to win the Solly Wrap!!! I’m sure life with a toddler and a newborn will require a lot of baby-wearing. :)

    Absolutely love all these beautiful items. I’m 9 months pregnant now and would love to be able to own each cute one. Just shows you can have a baby and still be stylish! I have four other pregnant sister sister in law and cousin behind me and I will be sure to share my new little secret. Etsy is such an amazing thing always good to know your getting a product made right and by who rather than a big mass producing company these shop owners really care and take pride in their work! Good luck to everyone

    I would love to win for my little who is due this Saturday (15th), so super excited to meet her and have her meet her older sister who is 5. It’s been so long since I’ve had a newborn and I love seeing all these mom shops that make incredible cute handmade items! I just love being able to support not only other moms and their shops but women who had dreams and made them real. It’s very inspiring, especially while raising girls!

  • Reply Britni Bradford March 10, 2014 at 4:11 pm

    I would love to win this because we have a two year old and are expecting #2 (team green!) in May. These companies offer great products that I would love for both my babies – love the tiffany blue bow clips from LittleKateDesigns, the mint Solly Wrap would be perfect for baby #2, Boucle D’ors stuff is adorable and my toddler would love it, and I’m loving the unicorn leggings on the Sugarplum lane website.

  • Reply Courtney March 10, 2014 at 4:16 pm

    such precious goods! i am a first-time expectant mama (due june 23) and have had a hard time weeding through all the baby goods out there, but you have narrowed them down to a beautiful, functional list! i especially love the solly baby wrap!

    All these items are gorgeous! Our first baby is due in 5 weeks!

    I would LOVE to win these adorable leggings and headbands for Layla. The baby carrier looks comfy and would be saved for baby # 2(sometime in the future). We’ve used mostly hand-me-downs and stuff bought from consignment shops so it would be fun to get NEW , pretty things for our little love.

  • Reply Diana Sanapanya March 10, 2014 at 6:52 pm

    Hi! Being a first time mommy, I love spending my down time reading blogs of other mommies when my little 6 week old guy is sleeping. It lets me know I can do this! Its nice to see other moms and that I can relate and am not alone in this. I actually had been following the solly wrap for a while now and didn’t wanna hash out the cash for it since I’m not working and decided on the boba wrap. After receiving it and reading more into the sollywrap, I think I should have gone with the solly wrap because of the light and fashionable fabric (the striped one you have is so my style!). Living in California I can already tell the boba wrap is going to be too hot for the little guy. As for the headbands and headwraps, I think they are just darling. Very simple (like me) yet unique in their own way. I’ve been looking into baby tights as well and Sugarplum Lane Baby Boutique has some really adorable ones. I love how the tights are not only limited to girls and they make sure the little boys can look just as stylish :). Thank you for your blog!

  • Reply kaela March 10, 2014 at 7:01 pm

    my goodness what a beautiful giveaway! we are welcoming our son into the world at the end of this month. I would be delighted to use the solly baby wrap with him, as we continue to chase his big sister around. thanks for the opportunity!

  • Reply mrjernet March 10, 2014 at 7:33 pm

    My daughter has to wear a helmet for the next 2 months to fix her flat head so I cannot wait until she gets it off so I can put her in cute little headbands and bows instead of the clunky helmet!

  • Reply Henna March 10, 2014 at 9:15 pm

    Ahh, this stuff is so cute! The Sugarplum Lane leggings are to die for.. I think Zain NEEDS to be in a pair of moose ones ASAP. Dying. Even if my kids have outgrown the other stuff, I’d love to be able to have cute stuff like this for my many about-to-have-baby friends! What great stuff. :)

  • Reply Felicia March 10, 2014 at 9:59 pm

    The baby girl world will be completely new to me next month! I am due April 14th with baby #2, a girl!, and this would be the ultimate icing on the cake for us. Especially since there are so many bows, leggings, and headbands out there it would be awesome to win some- and I’m sure they would become our favorites too! And a wrap?! We definitely will be needing one and I would love to own a Solly!

  • Reply Amie March 10, 2014 at 11:16 pm

    Baby girl accessories are like the rich buttercream frosting on the cupcake- I can’t wait to dress up my baby girl! And I love the Solly baby wrap- any way to snuggle more with my baby is a-ok by me!!! Thanks for a fun giveaway! Isla is just adorable and I love your blog!

    My neighbor has the cutest little newborn girl whom my daughter adores and calls her little sister. She loves dressing her up and actually just asked me if I have a carrier she can borrow, this package would be amazing (and I absolutely love the headbands, maybe she will pass them down if I ever have another girl)

    I need a Solly Baby wrap for my babe due in July( that’s a fact)! All your favorites look amazing!

  • Reply Crystal Dancer March 11, 2014 at 12:33 am

    I love all Isla’s favorites! My first was a boy. A 9lb, 20inches boy & I’m just under 5foot. Needless to say baby wearing wasn’t really the best option. Baby #2 is a girl due April 4th. Hopefully she’s a bit more in the petite side. I think the Solly Baby Wrap would be AMAZING for the hot Southern Cali summer we are sure to have! I’ve been drooling over the SugarPlum legging. The arrow ones are actully already on my wish list. I’ve been eyeing some of the bows from Little Kate because what little girl can have too many bows! The Boucle d’ or design head wraps are great & super adorable on your little one. Thank you for hosting such a lovely giveaway. Any mom would be lucky to win!

  • Reply Jennifer March 11, 2014 at 1:35 am

    we have a toddler and he’s awesome but we’ve got a little girl due this week and i’d love to have some cute girlie things in the house too! plus having a wrap would be amazing for the little one while running after my son!!!!

    My baby girl is due in May and I also don’t want to dress her in super pink and frills. These items are perfect because they’re adorable without being over the top!

  • Reply rachel V March 11, 2014 at 12:45 pm

    So so cute! We are expecting our little one in the next few weeks and her name is Isla as well. I have been scouring the internet to find pieces that are unique and like so many have said not too much pink and frills. I am a portrait and wedding photographer and a lot of my time is spent at the computer, I know baby wearing is going to be essential and the Solly wrap is perfect and the leggings and headbands are so cute!

    First of all, Isla has great taste ;) I LOVE the White Leather Gold Metallic Center Bow from LittleKateDesigns. It is so versatile for all seasons! I have been drooling over Solly wraps for a while! As a first time mom in the south it will get hot and I want to babywear and Solly wraps seem to be the best for that. I’d choose the Buttercream. The Pink Hearts Skinny Leggings from Boucle D’or are just darling and could be worn SO many ways! Sugarplum Lane is just adorable all around, but I swoon over their Organic Gold Glitter Polka Dot Leggings!!

    This is such a fabulous giveaway for such a wonderful blog :D

    While the headbands are pretty much girl-only, which I’d love to win for a girlfriend having a little girl in July, i thought the moose, polka dot and mountain legging designs would be manly enough for my little dude. I also neeeed a solly baby wrap. My Moby is great, but the fabric is rather thick as we start to get into the beautiful spring weather. Pick me,, pick me!! (
