Princesses and Hair Bows

Our youngest goes to a Mother’s Morning Out program two days a week, and they held their annual fall art fair recently–so I dropped by on the way to pick her up.  Lots and lots of hair bows, no surprise, and honestly, not many of them interested me that much.  But then.  I saw these:

The company is called Buggabow, and it’s based right here in Atlanta.  I saw these bows and really loved that they’re different from a lot of what’s out there.  Plus, hey! Buy five, get one free!

I grabbed a couple for Thanksgiving, the most underrated of all the holidays–our youngest two will wear these for most of November, part of my personal crusade to let the turkeys get more credit.  I’m kicking myself for not also getting the headband, but who’s to say I won’t?  Oh, wait.  I just bought it from her online shop.  Yes, that just happened.

And while we’re getting turkey hair clips, why not some for Christmas, in whose shadow those turkeys sit? Hard to choose on this one, but I went for smaller clips since our youngest has very (VERY) little hair still–even after 18 months.

But the piece de resistance, the ones that drew me in and pushed these hair clips way above the other clips I’ve seen, were the princess clips:

I could almost hear my five-year-old losing her mind when I saw these.  Or maybe I was hearing my own voice, unnaturally loud as I said, “Those are SO CUTE.”  Could go either way.

I love me some mermaid princess.  And then I grabbed, with my buy-five-get-one-free coupon, the “blue princess” while I was at it.

I haven’t given these to the girls yet, and I’m not entirely sure when I will.  I know that much happiness will ensue, followed almost as certainly by screaming and tears.  But: worth it!

Disclaimer: I don’t know the maker of these bows, and have only met her at this particular craft show.  This isn’t a promotional post–I just love the bows and think they’re darling.  Am totally sending the link to my MIL for stocking stuffers, and thought it would be nice to pass it along and support a local business.  See all her bows and headbands at

    What a bummer…they don’t ship to Europe. BUT- I am having a visitor over the holidays and I’ll bet there is a little suitcase space available for these!

      Bummer they don’t ship–but isn’t it nice to have friends who can carry things over? The ribbon on these is so, so sweet and really well done. Can’t wait to put them on my girls!

    I sent the info to the two Grandma’s for Christmas ideas. Princess hairbows = preschool crack for girls. I’m on the fence about enabling her princess habit but meanwhile the Turkey is adorable.

      Ha! Yes, totally true–I almost feel guilty giving them MORE princess things, but they really do love them, and the ribbons are so cleverly done that I figured at least I’ll enjoy looking at the craftsmanship, even if I don’t love that I’m enabling them!
