Mint and Arrows Retro Wrap Headband Review

I was given free product to review.  The fact that I was given free product does NOT influence my review, all opinions are my own!
Mint and Arrows makes a variety of items, including car seat covers, wet bags, and Boppy pillow covers.

I was sent two Wrap Headbands in a pink chevron print to review.  One for me, and one for Hadlee.  Which is great because Hadlee is a much cuter model than me (even with a pixelated face to protect her privacy!)  I wanted some pictures of us together, but I forgot to ask Michael to take them so I only have separate ones.
First off, let me say that they were packaged very well.  Neatly folded in a zipper bag, in a new shipping envelope.  Way classier than anything I have ever mailed out.

















I love the vintage look to them.  It is a little "Rosie the Riveter" like.  It could even be "pin-up-ish".  I even experimented with a hippie look (not sure I recommend that one...).

Not only are these super cute, but they are really comfortable too.  I tend to get headaches from headband, my body doesn't dig the pressure behind my ears, but I keep trying because I love them.  This is a headWRAP, so it is one size fits all, because you tie it on to fit your head.  Since it is made of a soft stretch knit, it doesn't have any elastic so there are no pressure points.  I honestly forget I am wearing it, and it keeps my bangs out of my eyes.

Mint and Arrows has an amazing selection of fabrics for their products, especially their headwraps.  No matter what colors or prints you like, they are sure to have something you love.  You can purchase any of the wonderful products pictured here, along with many others by visiting the Mint and Arrows Etsy Shop.

Just a few of the styles available!

Congratulations to the winner:

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
