Lilla Rose Review & Giveaway

To be quite honest, I was a bit skeptical about how well a Lilla Rose clip would work for me.
My hair is much thicker than it appears.  I break my hair ties on a regular basis and updos are a struggle. Nevertheless, I decided to give Lilla Rose a try.   A consultant explained the seven sizes to me, and I ended up going with a Large. 
The following size chart helped me better understand which clips would work best with my hair.

Despite my skepticism, I immediately fell in love with my Lilla Rose clip when it arrived!
Not only was is positively gorgeous, but it also held my thick hair securely.  The fact that the clip is all one piece (the stick is attached) helped it stay in place better than any similar product that I have tried in the past. 

This clip is incredibly versatile.  It works great for ponytails, updos, half-up styles, and so much more.
Little Miss Cupcake can not stop talking about how "gorgeous and shiny" my Lilla Rose clip is.
Shhhhhh... I am planning on surprising her with a mini clip of her very own!

What to wear on a chilly South Florida Monday morning?
I fell in love the moment I put on this incredibly soft chevron top from Decadence Boutique.
This Worth The Trip Chevron Top is currently available in black.
The lightweight material is oh-so-breathable making it perfect for layering in the winter or alone in the summer.

I basically want one of EVERYTHING at Decadence Boutique.

This cozy top paired fabulously with basic stretchy jeans from Forever 21

Sea World Orlando

While we visit LegoLand regularly, we decided that it was time that Miss Cupcake went to a larger theme park. 
Sea World was the logical choice since she adores fish and all things nautical.  
I was pleased to find that Sea World is quite toddler friendly.
There is an entire kiddie ride section that I had never even noticed during my pre-baby visits.

While the rides were definitely a hit, Miss Cupcake was equally amused by the shows.
Our family favorite was the One Ocean.  This all-new Shamu show features majestic killer whales in an array of vivid colors and global rhythms of the ocean.  Dancing fountains set the stage as you connect with thrilling sea creatures, feel the energy and sprit of life underneath the sea, and realize that we are all part of one world, one ocean.

Miss Cupcake adored the dolphins and killer wales!
However, her favorite show was Pets Ahoy which featured positively adorable trained animals who had been adopted from animal shelters across the country.  She giggled with delight at the fluffy pets and all their tricks.

We made oodles of memories and had a positively lovely day!
While we had originally been a bit hesitant to take a two year old to Sea World, we found that this theme park is truly fun for all ages.  In fact, we decided to upgrade to yearly passes before we left.
