Miss Gina Designs Review and Giveaway

"The other girls told me my tutu was so beautiful! And one of the girls told me I looked like Cinderella!" my daughter recounted to me with sparkling eyes after dance class. The source of this twinkling confidence and pride? A "Cinderella" blue tulle tutu by Regina Moore of Miss Gina Designs! The tutu is a two tone creation with sparkles fit for a princess. Both my princesses now have Miss Gina Designs tutus. My eldest daughter's tutu is a lavish extra full purple tulle complete with purple satin bow. As I've said before, I love quality handmade products. I know the care, time and skill which goes into the production of quality handmade items as those Regina creates. Handmade also provides individuals the opportunity to express themselves through unique pieces.
My daughters are fortunate to be allowed to wear any dance wear they wish to their regular dance classes and these delicious tutus are now the favourite! The tutus are tied rather than sewn but are so lavish and made with such obvious care and attention to detail that I have never encountered prettier! My girls truly feel like prima-ballerinas and I love any product that brings such confidence and high self-esteem to my little girls!

Regina Moore has mentioned there may be fewer children's items on her site shortly due to the new CPSI regulations.

But for grown-up "princesses" such as myself there will continue to be gorgeous quality handmade products like the next product in this review!

My new Miss Gina Designs Handbag makes me feel like a princess in my own right. The fabric combinations Regina chooses are stunning. As I removed my fabric handbag from the tissue it was carefully packaged in I was struck by how unique it was. I am not the type who enjoys attracting attention but I do love celebrating my own unique personal style. This handbag does just that! It stands out as special amongst the sea of plain leather handbags. I like to sew. I am not an expert seamstress but I know quality and I know when shortcuts have been taken. No shortcuts were taken to produce this bag! The craftsmanship and attention to detail is evident at first glance. Not only is it esthetically pleasing but very functional. I love that it has outside pockets for those items you need easy access to. I also love the multi-sized pockets inside able to accommodate all the gadgets and gear a woman could want to carry. And by the way the inside is as gorgeous as the outside. This particular handbag has a satin button closure but another I will be reviewing at a later date has the quick, convenience magnetic closure. This handbag is my little piece of heaven!

The Giveaway: One of my lucky readers will have the opportunity to experience her own little piece of heaven! Regina Moore of Miss Gina Designs has graciously offered one of my readers a fabulous wristlet clutch handbag of their very own!
