So, I once again managed to spend all my money in like a week. This is not a good start of the new year.. Oh well..
One thing I spent money on was some of the Bow Peeps' adorable bows. So let's give them a small review, shall we?
I found out about this cute store when someone I follow on instagram tagged them in a photo. I checked them out and was just staring at my laptop in awe, thinking "... I need this"
Their bows are really adorable and just very unique. They also make my inner geek happy as they have Pokemon themed bows, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, and more.
I commented on one of their instagram posts, asking how much shipping was to the Netherlands. They replied fairly quickly and told me it was €7 (I think), BUT, if I left them a note with a second bow of my choice I would get it for free. I thought it was so kind of them that I didn't hesitate to order.
I ordered a bow-tie and a hair bow, but they can be used for both purposes as they have an alligator clip.
These were the bows I ordered; a bulbasaur inspired bow and a cute purple one. (Also their business card is really cute)
Shipping was quite fast, faster than I expected. I got it in about a week, which is unusual for something coming from the US. But I think I was just lucky. The package wasn't anything special, but to be honest I don't care about that. I mean, you throw it away after anyway. The important thing is the content.
It's nice that you can use the bows for different purposes, because I have short hair so I don't really wear hair bows, unless I wear a wig. I love bow-ties though.
What I love so much about the bows is that you can clearly see they are handmade with love. It seems like they really put their time and effort in it to make it look beautiful. Some people just try to do it quickly and don't care about mistakes, but these are really made with love.
