Headband Winner and Life Without a Laptop

Kudos to anyone who manages to run a blog from their phone (I’m looking at you
Stacey, from Mom Upcycles). My laptop bit the dust a couple of weeks ago, and while I did got a new one for my Birthday (yay!), I have yet to transfer anything or put on any programs I use…or done anything actually. I got the new computer just hours before driving to Texas and with no WiFi its basically impossible to work on it. Not to mention, I’ve been enjoying my time away from the computer. However, I am looking forward to getting back and getting all set up again.

No WiFi and no laptop cannot keep me from posting the winner to my most recent giveaway! I am SO excited to giveaway $20 to Violet Bowtique! So let’s put it off no longer…the winner is

Never Too Many Headbands (Giveaway)

I told you I had a lot of giveaways coming up, didn’t I? Truth is, I’ve been holding back because we’ve been so ridiculously busy. I am determined to get these all out in the next few weeks! Today’s review/giveaway is so cute you will instantly melt and turn into a puddle of goo the moment you see it. I ran across this item on Etsy (shocking, I know.) And, once again, I found not only a great product, but a great person/creator. Friends of Positively Panicked, welcome to Violet Bowtique!

I am lucky enough to get to review 3 beautiful crotchet headbands from Violet Bowtique. Luna has sported these headbands countless times now. She wore one at Comic Con, one to Santa’s PJ party, the park, out to dinner, to music class and just around the house. They are really fun to match to different outfits and we have gotten so many compliments on them.

These headbands aren’t just for looking adorable either, they also double as ear warmers! Since, our stupid weather is already getting cold, I have used the big bow headbands as ear warmers for Luna many times now. They are also super soft. Lots of the headbands I bought for Luna are cute, but they leave marks on her head. Either the elastic band is to tight or the bow leaves a big row dent on her head. These, however, leave no mark. Luna tends to leave the headbands on, so they must not be bothering her. Yay!

The only bad thing I can say is that I lost the mustard colored one while walking around Comic Con…inserts crying emoticon here. By the time I realized it had fallen off the stroller it was lost among the sea of thousands meandering around the main floor. I just hope another adorable baby found it and is now wearing it around Manhattan.

Best of luck people! I’ll be selecting a winner on Friday, November 28th. Oh, and FYI, because Letisha, the owner of Violet Bowtique is a busy new Mom/teacher/entrepreneur, her shop is only open twice a week, so be sure to check out her schedule here.
