Friday Feature & GIVEAWAY: Enchanted Hair Ties

Once again, I'm really glad that it's Friday. How about you? Do you always find yourself looking forward to Fridays or weekends?

Well, to celebrate the end of another long week, it's time for a Friday Feature - with a GIVEAWAY!!! If you've been reading for the past week, you'll know I'm on an absolute purple craze lately. One of the prizes is a purple hair tie set. Go figure, right?



Today I introduce you to Krista, owner of Enchanted Hair Ties (shown here with her lovely daughter - who just happens to be wearing purple)



Krista sent us a couple of sets of her super cool hair ties for a product review. 


Originally, I was going to have my teenage daughter review them, but Baby Girl ended up LOVING these SO much that she really didn't want to share (and big sis was nice enough to let it go).  With that being said, we'll be buying more of these bits of stretchy fun from Krista soon too. Baby Girl had no problem sporting the neon colors and zebra print. She loves them all!




First off, I want to share a little background of Enchanted Hair Ties. Krista started her handmade business in making hand-stitched 
felt barrettes (and I can just imagine how cute these were), but they were time-consuming. She actually started to close up shop before switching to making elastic hair ties! Read more about her story HERE.
Plus, one thing that I love...She includes her daughter in the business. For regular readers, you know that I'm big on including the kids (it really teaches them SO much!), so I love that Krista shares this with her daughter as well. =0)




Now on to the review. We love these hair ties because:
* Baby Girl LOVES all the fun colors! 
Plus, the shop has fun prints - Disney Princess (now you see why we'll be ordering some soon?) and other fun characters and themes.
* They don't leave "hair dents" or "hair bumps." 
You know when you leave a hair tie in for a long time and take it out, you've got this nice -er, annoying - hair dent where the tie had been? Well, these hair ties don't leave those. They also don't pull out your hair like other hair ties do (or at least not as much), so they are more "ouch-free," soft & comfy.
* Affordable
The hair ties are very reasonably priced. Whether you buy as a single or a large party pack, the price is sure to fit your budget (always a good thing). 
* Wear them as bracelets (of course)!!! 
You can wear one or many. Mix and match colors for endless possibilities of accessorizing.
* Great for kids and adults
With all the fun kid's themes & the tons of colors to choose from, great party favor packages are available, like the one shown above featuring Disney's Sofia the First.
Although Baby Girl dominated the package we received, these hair ties are perfect for her older sister, and for me too. Enchanted even makes bridal sets. Krista can personalize to match wedding colors, like this one shown below (clickable image):

Krista says:
For brides - I can do any type of pack you'd like and I personalize your packs (for free!). I've been doing quite a few packs lately for weddings and really enjoy working with the brides. I can do any quantity!
I'm open to custom orders, and I offer personalized birthday and bridal packages. If you are looking for something in particular and can't find it in my shop, just contact me. If I don't have it, I'll find it :)
FYI: I tie my hair ties loosely so they will fit smaller wrists. If you want them bigger, you simply pull them apart a bit from the inside of the knot.

One more thing that I want to share before getting to the giveaway...
There's a section in the shop called BLINGTIES, where the hair ties have just a little bit of bling added. With next month being Breast Cancer Awareness month, I wanted to show you these little pretties (clickable image):
