     Foxgloves fingerless gloves are " fun & simple handmade fingerless gloves, available in a variety of colors & patterns, fashioned from comfortable stretch fabrics. Think dancewear, activewear, mesh, knit & jersey." 
     I these are perfect for the younger crowd, dancers, or anyone looking to add a little color/pop to their outfit! I always loved the sweatshirts and Tshirts that had the holes for the thumbs and if they didn't I always would make one! (Which in turn ended up ruining my clothes). So these would be the perfect alternative!

Tons to choose from!
    I was provided with these black and white striped Foxgloves. They were in a size S/M and fit comfortably and were stretchy which made for an easy fit for anyone. I liked how lightweight there were too. 
     I wouldn't wear these to keep warm but more for an accessory. I could see these particular ones being worn to concerts as well! 

Two different styles to pick from:
  • Thumb style, across the top of the hand, with an opening for the thumb 
  • Finger-style, a v-cut over the back of the hand, with an opening for the middle finger
Foxgloves are currently available in sizes:  Child Small; Child Large; Adult Small/Medium & Adult Medium/Large


One pair: $12 - $15

     What perfect timing!! I got engaged on Valentines Day of this year! When I received this apron, I was in love with the quality of the fabric along with the beautiful rhinestone design! This apron is the perfect little gift for bridal parties to really feel like party of the big day and have a great keepsake!
     I did get to pick from Bride, Bridesmaid or Mother of the Bride from BuyCuteAprons.com I chose to get the Bride one because knowing myself when getting ready after getting into my dress, I am bound to get something on it! But imagine giving one of these to all your bridesmaids or even mother! I think it's a thoughtful & practical gift! Not to mention great for those fun photos!

Just realized the mirror had a spot on it :(
     That's not a stain on the above photo, the mirror was a little dirty :( I have already thought of so many uses for this adorable apron! When doing my makeup for the Bachelorette party, doing my nails, cooking etc. I can't wait to parade around my house near my wedding day wearing this!! :)

Arrived in a little jewelry box like this, nice & sealed!
     I love bracelets like this, you know...the ones that actually have meaning and are made to fit any wrist size. That's one feature I liked right off the bat was that it's comfortable to wear and lightweight, with a stretchy band.
      The charms are not cheap looking either. They look durable and not obnoxious looking. I have paired this bracelet with just about any outfit, that's what I like about picking pieces that are black. Although they do have a few other pretty color choices.

(back) Adorable yet simple tree with a heart in the branches! <3
     As simple as the bracelet can look from far away from people who don't own one, YOU will always know the special meaning behind it and can be a conversation starter as well. I personally can connect to this bracelet because I have a large family and when I first got this bracelet, that is the first image that popped into my head; all of my relatives in one room having a great time. I'm so happy to have this bracelet and think of my family every time I look at it.
Bracelet: $20
