My Little Aura~Review and Giveaway

My Little Aura ...Brightening your Soul...


My Little Aura--a wistfully wonderful name for a store of airy organic delights! I stumbled upon My Little Aura while perusing Etsy and immediately loved the natural and also ethnic nature of the items I saw. Owner, Barbara, is a Chilean designer whose passion for fashion is mingled with her love of the earth. The result of this mingling--original pieces made from knitted, sewn and crocheted natural fibers and recycled materials! There is something almost mystical about Barbara's pieces which induce me to imaginings of faeries and nymphs and nature at its most pure! Each piece is close to nature in both material and design.
I had the pleasure of receiving a My Little Aura cowl/headband in white with aqua edging. The headband is super soft, made of 100% organic cotton, and is extremely versatile. For those of you who love to pull your hair back but are tired of the typical ponytail, headband, or hair clip this piece provides you with a gloriously unique, funky and natural looking option. When I received the headband I was pleasantly surprised to find the headband is "pocketed"! it is sewn with a sort of pocket that could essentially be pulled over the ends of your hair to cover it's entirety for a completely different look or even for practical reasons when you wish to protect your hair of prevent it from getting in the way. I really am most impressed by how unique but unobtrusive the style is. People will notice you yet you will blend in and not stand out like a sore thumb in social situations.

Some of my absolutely favourite My Little Aura pieces would have to be the lime green shrug, lime green skirt, and the lilac wrap! I feel confident that to wear these would be like being wrapped in luxurious comfort! Tell me what you love at My Little Aura and enter to win a My Little Aura headband/cowl of your choice!
