Bow me over Bows -- Review and Giveaway!

I have two beautiful daughters who are both rambunctious and carefree! They are absolutely adorable...if I do say so myself, one with long flowing dark hair and the other with long silky blond tresses and both with no interest in ponytails! This can pose a problem for mommy who would love to keep their wild hair somewhat tidy. Enter Bow Me Over Bows! Though my girls love to out run the best of the boys and keep up with their older brother they also love being girls. Bow Me Over Bows even caught the hair care fickle eye of my little beauties.
The hair bows we received were bright and cheerful delights. My daughters could not wait to wear them! As I have said my girls do not care to restrain their hair in ponytails {they have just recently given up their weekly protest on dance nights and have resolved themselves to that torture} but they don't mind clips and barrettes which are quick and simple and I guess feel less restraining. Usually I have to suggest barrettes but now that we have Bow Me Over Bows the girls need no suggestion!

I have a larger Boutique Style Bow attached to a french clip barrette. What I like about this barrette style is that it snaps together tightly around the hair and does not easily come unsnapped. It is also easier to open and close than those barrettes that have to be slid closed from one side and often become loose. My eldest daughter loves this beautiful bow of green and floral ribbons especially. It is not only vibrant but is adorned with a large tree button which says "Tree Hugger"! I love the environmental sentiment and my daughter thinks it's just "cool"! These bows are about 3 inches and work well for older girls and toddlers with a substantial amount of hair.

If you have a younger child or are looking for something slightly smaller Michele also makes equally beautiful bitty bows on clips with that all important Velcro which keeps them from slipping! We tried a bitty bow and what I think is fabulous is how easy it is to clip one on my daughter and go there's no tricky closure to deal with and everyone comments on how lovely their hair is even though you spent exactly 5 seconds doing it! Our bitty bow is fuchsia with an adorable hot pink button in the center. Again I was drawn to the vibrancy of it's colour but Bow Me Over Bows offers so many choices and such wonderful variety to suit any one's tastes!

Fear not if your daughter is not a fan of bows because Bow Me Over Bows also has clippees. These ribbon covered clips like the bitty bows are made with that not so secret slip-free ingredient...Velcro and are as simple as clip and go! Again we went with the environmental them and received a very cool green clippee with a "Keep the Earth Beautiful" peace sign which both my daughters love so they wear it interchangeably!
I have seen many hair bow and clip companies online but Michele's really caught my eye! My daughters have very vibrant and spirited personalities and these bows are like the icing on a cake. They really reflect their personalities, make a statement, and allow them self-expression and confidence! Bow Me Over Bows makes being a girl fun and isn't that what it should be?
Now your daughters or another little girl you cherish can express their vibrant personalities with three hair accessories from Bow Me Over Bows! Michele is offering a lucky Northern Mama reader: One Boutique Style Bow, One Bitty Bow, and One clippee of the reader's choice!
