Chonky Boys: The Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches that Scream Summer!

Hair Jewelry Giveaway from Lilla Rose


Rook No. 17 is all about adding a little sparkle to everyday life, so I'm especially delighted to share with you a giveaway from a company that applies that same philosophy to doing your hair!  The Lilla Rose product line centers around unique, functional, and well made hair jewelry.  It's affordable, elegant and works on any hair type.  That's great news for me because I have very fine hair and most days it's back in a ponytail!

The Lilla Rose signature piece of hair jewelry is a piece called a Flexi Clip. It is a patented, one-piece hair clip that works in all types of hair, from baby fine to extra-long and thick. It comes in 7 sizes, and enables you to do a variety of charming hairstyles! 

I used the handy sizing guide on the Lilla Rose website to determine the perfect size for my hair.
