Lilla Rose Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I received complimentary product for review purposes. The links below are to a family member’s Lilla Rose business. 

I have a love-hate relationship with my hair. It’s thick, curly and unruly. When humidity strikes, I can either choose to look like a poof ball or put my hair up. The same old hair elastics get a little boring, though. Lilla Rose offers a line of pretty hair clips and jewelry to add some sparkle and fun to your look. Now I don’t need to look like I had to put my hair up on a rainy day. I can put my hair up and still look on point! Dark hair and fluorescent university lighting make this a little difficult to see, but the flexi held my super thick, mid-back length hair.

When C had his NG-tube and then his g-tube placed last August, I did not anticipate all the other “stuff” that comes with having a tubie. I have never cleaned up so much vomit in my life.

Real Food Blends for Tubies

“One option is going to be a tube.”

Those words from C’s pediatric GI doctor took me by surprise. I knew my two-year-old was small. I knew he had severe feeding problems. I never imagined what life would have in store for us. Last year, C had a g-tube surgically placed and we started giving him four bottles of formula each day. His behavior was erratic. I noticed sugar highs and lows.
