Inspired Wednesday: Lilla Rose Review & Giveaway

I've always had a thing for jewelry.  Love the stuff - always have.  Doesn't matter if it's rings, necklaces, or bracelets, there's something about delicate decorations that fascinates me.

So when I first heard about jewelry for your hair a few months ago, I couldn't wait to try it out!

Lilla Rose is a company that produces just that.  With a huge line of clips in all sorts of colors, themes, and sizes, as well as decorative pins and bands, each Lilla Rose item is beautiful.

I recently received my Celtic Cross flexi-clip - well, about a month ago, and I've worn it every day since.  It looks delicate but is actually very strong.  It stays in my hair well, and there are many things I can do with it.

I've pulled the hair away from my face and clipped it in the back.

I've made a twist with my hair and fastened it all up with my flexi.

This picture came out a bit blurry, but My Big Helper can wear it as a low ponytail.

The absolute best thing about my flexi is that it's so versatile.  I used to leave the house for an all-day trip with a plastic clip in my hair and a band in my pocket, with usually another tucked in a bag somewhere, so I could be sure that I could tame my hair as needed.  With my flexi I don't need anything else.  I can pull some back or, with a bit of twisting, have all my hair up and out of my face - no bands or plastic clips necessary.

I must admit, though, that this didn't happen overnight.  The flexi-clip design is like nothing I've ever seen before, and for this hair-challenged girl, it posed a slight problem in the beginning.  It definitely took some practice to be able to manipulate both sides of the flexi while holding my hair in place, but after a day or two of practicing, I got it figured it out.  Which is not to say that I can do the fancy upsweeps yet, because I can't, but then again, I never could, so if the flexi somehow teaches me, that'll just be an extra happy bonus.  

I'm already dreaming of which flexi I'll choose next.  They come in different sizes so you can do different things with them, and I can't wait to try out some more fun hairstyles.  Besides, I'm about to get a haircut, and then I'll have less to work with, so I'm going to need a smaller one, right?  wink.

Sue Ellen is my Lilla Rose consultant, and she'd like to be yours, too.  She's generously giving one Flexi-Clip away to one of you!  I can't wait to hear which flexi you pick.  If you are already one of Sue Ellen's customers or you've not yet tried a Lilla Rose product, you are eligible for this giveaway!  Sign up with the widget below.
