Headband Winner and a Really Good Day

Well today was a helluva lot better than the past few. No one had a fever. Luna and I went for a run. We shopped at Costco and Target. Luna was in bed by 7:30. OH, and I got to take a shower, shave my legs and wash my hair while Luna napped…does it get any better??? Well, yes actually it does… tonight, I get to announce the winner of the My Mika Handmade headband. (Did I mention I also got Starbucks and some TV time with Husband? Is today even real?)

Alright, here’s to hopefully making someone else’s night as good as mine, the winner of the leopard print handmade headband is….

Katie Dupuis

Well I was one of the lucky ones to lose handfuls of hair after pregnancy. So 1+ year later, with little wispy regrowth everywhere, I cut it chin-length. That helps with messy hair days and I usually just flat iron a few pieces in the front if I’m in a hurry (I can’t see the back. So let’s assume it looks ok? Not!)

It IS yours! Congrats Katie!
It IS yours! Congrats Katie!

Congrats Katie, and also I like the way you think. Let’s all just agree to only look at the front of each others’ hair. Deal? Don’t forget to email me (positivelypanicked@gmail.com) with your mailing info.

Lacey Baby Headband Review and Giveaway

It’s been a while since I’ve done a review/giveaway, and that’s a shame because I actually have quite a few items waiting to be reviewed! I cannot speak highly enough of all the incredible shops I continue to find on Etsy and Instagram. (Did you know Instagram shops are a thing?! They are fantastic and way too addicting.) Anyways, thanks to a few giveaways, an upcoming birthday and some very good New Year deals, Luna has quite a collection of homemade stylish baby clothes and accessories. Today, I want to introduce you to My Mika Handmade.mymika

I came across My Mika on Etsy while looking for some headbands for Luna. What caught my eye, were some lacey headbands she had recently posted. Luna has a few headbands, but no lace ones…until My Mika.

My Mika makes more than headbands too. She also makes scarves, nursing shawls and teething necklaces. (FYI her shop is on a break right now, but she will re-open it in February, get excited!) My only concern about the lacey headbands was that they may feel scratchy and uncomfortable, but turns out I had no reason to be concerned. They are very soft, stretchy and comfortable for both me and Luna. Yup, both of us. We got a mommy/daughter set. Is it any surprise that I like dressing us alike? No. It’s really not.

The headbands are well-made with quality material, well-priced and made by hand, of course. They are also extremely trendy right now, and does it really matter if your baby is trendy? No, but is it fun and adorable to dress up your wee little one? Absolutely!
