Review of Tailored Tots' Simply Silicone Teether

IMG_2601.jpg

On the hunt for some teething toys or accessories for your little baby? Tailored Tots specializes in just that! Within Tailored Tots’ shop you will find a variety of handmade teethers and toys which you and your baby will love! For most of the listings you’ll also have the ability to customize your product, making it that much more meaningful and unique.

We had the awesome opportunity to review Tailored TotsSimply Silicone Teether and love it because of the following reasons:

  • First of all this teether is just the cutest thing ever but what we love is the gender neutral colours which are perfect for either a boy or girl

  • The listing gives you the ability to choose from a variety of different colours

  • The silicone beads used in this product (and in all other products within Tailored Tots’ shop), are made of 100% food grade and free from any harmful chemicals making them FDA approved and non-toxic

  • This product is dishwasher and freezer friendly!

  • The teether is lightweight and easy for little hands to grasp

    Note: although teethers are intended for baby use, they contain small parts and should always be monitored when using. Discard tenths when signs of wear and tear are present.

And here are the reasons why we love Tailored Tots’ overall:

  • Safety is really their #1 priority and it was evident when we did a pull test on our teether! With all of Tailored Tots’ items being handcrafted they go through a series of lock knots to ensure the product has superior durability!

  • All products are affordably priced for the selling features and make great gifts for moms and moms to be!

  • All of their products used in their teethers/accessories are sourced from reputable suppliers, all with safety certifications stating the product meet the highest of standards that Tailored Tots enforces!

Review of Pulp's Creations Custom Birthday Card

DSC_0043.JPG

My SO's birthday passed and I decided I would get a custom created card just for him. At the time Hello Small Shop accepting product reviews so when I came across Pulp Creation I knew I had to work with them to create the perfect card for my SO!

Pulp Creations was created by a husband and wife duo a few years ago, and specialize in creating almost any type of invites such as custom invites for bridal parties, favour tags, table numbers, seating charts, movie posters, menus and thank you cards. Since my SO loves motivational quotes I decided to create him a card which he can hold and cherish.

So here's what I thought of the entire process and the card itself:

  • The card was made of high quality stock paper that is not flismy
  • Working with the team was super easy and a breeze. I told them what I wanted and they helped me bring the idea to life
  • Shipping and turn around time was super quick

Have an upcoming wedding or bridal shower and looking for some fun photo props? Abby&Melo handmade specializes in custom handmade party decor and other personalized items that will make your next event memorable and fun!

We had the opportunity to review this super cute Disney Inspired Wedding Photo Booth Props and here's what we thought:

- This set is so cute and we plan to use it at our friend's baby shower next weekend!
- The props are made from the premium grade and glitter cardstock and each one is securely attached to strong, durable wodden dowel
- The total pieces in this set is 19 which includes: 
• 1 silver Disney castle
• 1 silver engagement ring
• 1 glitter bow tie
• 3 red glitter lips
• 1 silver glitter tiara
• 1 white pearl necklace
• 1 black camera with Mickey Mouse shaped lense
• 2 mustaches
• 1 set of red heart shaped glasses
• 1 pair of glitter Mickey Mouse shaped black glasses
• 1 set of Mickey Mouse hands
• 1 set of champagne glasses
• 1 champagne bottle
• 1 red glitter Minnie Mouse bow
• 1 blue bow tie
• 1 blue set of glasses

- The quality of the photo props are actually very sturdy which will make them props that can be reused for the next party we host or attend
- Our favourite props would have to be either the champagne glasses or the mustaches
- What's great about these props is that they are truly versatile! SO if you have an event where a specific prop does not make sense to have you can totally take it out!
- Love this set but envisioning it a tad differently? Send @AbbyandMelohandmade a shop on Insta and they'll work on a custom order with you!

Review of @ontheroadagain_official's Raymond Camo Tote Bag

IMG_1001.jpg

How adorable is this army tote bag from @ontheroadagain!? @ontheroadagain specializes in creating handmade goods that are designed for adventure and was born out of a life grounded in New England. The shop was inspired by the durable weather resistant mesh used to create truck tarps that are incorporated in the designs with their main focus being on accessories, large tote bags and table tops.  

We had the opportunity to review this stunning Raymond Camo Tote Bag and here’s what we thought:

-       Durable and sturdy. This bag was inspired by the durable mesh tarp used on industrial trucks yet looks so fun and trendy making it a fashion forward piece
-       This bag has a pocket on the outside which is great for storing your phone but I love putting
-       Beautiful pattern- we love the camo incorporated in this tote! Who would have thought of this gorgeous design?!
-      This tote also has two inside pockets to help keep your belongings organized along with a D-ring for your keys or even a tassel!
-       Made of USA made remnant mesh, fabrics and marine grade vinyl
-       The best part about this tote is that it is weather resistant. We actually got caught in the rain with this tote and can safely say all belongings were alright
-       Our favourite use for this tote is to use for either the gym or a quick shopping run
-       Dimensions: 16” L x 8” W

Review of Pumpkin Peanut Design's Custom Watercolor Home Portrait

 Buying a house is one of the biggest financial decisions you can make in life and it’s particularly exciting when it’s your dream house that you’ve been building for almost two years! This story rings true since someone, who is near and dear to me, just had their birthday pass and I decided to work with  Pumpkin Peanut Design  to have their dream home custom drawn JUST for them!  For those of you who aren't familiar with  Pumpkin Peanut Design 's shop, they pecializes in creating watercolor portraits, cards and other kinds of art. The majority of their work is custom portraits which make the perfect gift for almost ANY occasion.  Pumpkin Peanut Design  is operated by Brenda and Melissa, a mother and daughter duo who come from a long line of independent and creative women who taught that homemade is the best!  And I couldn't agree more! Brenda and Melissa truly believe that making things by hand creates a unique, personal and meaningful memory.  I had the wonderful opportuntiy to work with  Pumpkin Peanut Design  to create the custom house potrait above and here's what I thought:  - Working with these ladies was a breeze and actually much easier to work with them than expected, mainly because it’s hard for me to articulate what I want from behind a computer screen! But these ladies clearly have TONS of experience in customizing portraits that their clients will love  - The portrait was turned around fairly quickly. From the time I provided a photo of the house to the day I recieved the digital copy it was less than a week! I loved receiving the digital copy before it was sent to me via mail because it let me provide feedback/changes before the finalized portrait was sent to me  - Shipping to Canada was super fast and the portrait was firmly packaged and came in immaculate packaging that was ready to gift  - The person I gifted this custom portrait LOVED it and will be framing it to have as a keep sake!  Other than house portraits  Pumpkin Peanut Design  also offers faceless family portraits such as  this one  which we absolutely adore!  I promise you’ll LOVE this shop so be sure to check them out!

Review of A String of Wishes' Charm Bracelets

A String of Wishes specializes in creating string bracelets that make unique, affordable and ideal gifts for almost any occasion. A String of Wishes was founded in September 2015 and has seen their once “small shop” grow! A String of Wishes an now be found in multiple retailers across the UK that now stock these super cute bracelets too!

We had the opportunity to review these two stunning bracelets!

Here’s what we thought:

  • These bracelets are unique and affordable in price making them a sentimental and ideal gift whether it a birthday, graduation, anniversary and more!
  • Bracelets are packaged small and compact so they’re very easy to simply slip inside a card as a special surprise!
  • Each wish string bracelet comes presented on a beautiful backing card of your choice and sealed in a cellophane bag which can be easily opened in case a written personal message wants to be written on the backing card! A selection of different coloured string bracelets are also available allowing you to customize
  • Each backing card reads: "Tie this string around your wrist, close your eyes and make a wish, when your string starts to fray, you know your wish is on its way …"
  • Materials used in bracelets:
    • The waxed cotton string is cut at approx. 30cm making each bracelet one size fits all. Once the bracelet is tied nice and tight this can be then cut and trimmed to size.
    • Charms are lead and nickel free
  • Wish string bracelets are known to last up to 1 year and are designed to stay on once tied, therefore if preferred not to wear as a bracelet you can also use them as an anklet, a charm, a bag charm or even a key ring! As time goes by the wish string bracelet will gradually fade and fray, which is perfectly normal! Eventually the wish string will snap and hopefully your wish will be on it’s way!
  • New cards and charms are added often so be sure to follow A String of Wishes on social media to see what’s new!

Review of Jazminbell's Luxe Sleeping Mask In Watermelon Pink

The jazminbell® brand was founded by Jasmin Owen after graduating from the Australian National University.  Inspired by bright, colourful and functional design the collection has grown from the Mini Cold/Heat Pack Sets into over 11 different cold/heat pack solutions.  Jazminbell® products have quickly captured interest within the marketplace, not only because they are a great product, but because they are highly unique.  The brand has been featured in national magazines such as Woman's Day, Yours and TV Week! The jazminbell® brand is all about changing the conventions of traditional wheat bags and giving it a modern look, style, function and appeal. I had the awesome opportunity to review jazminbell®'s Luxe Sleep Mask in Watermelon Pink and here's what I thought: 

  • First and foremost I must say that this the cutest sleeping mask ever!! I loved wearing this before bed because it would aid in blocking light from waking me up or hurting my eyes and As a result this mask helped in improving my relaxation and sleep 
  • It is gentle in weight, so it hardly feels like you are wearing anything. Furthermore, one of my favourite things is that this mask is made from 100% plain cotton backing and the watermelon pink signature design that is also cotton
  • This mask was designed and handmade in Australia. Shipping was fairly quick- less than 2 weeks which is impressive since i'm in Canada!
  • I think these sleep masks would make the perfect gift for an upcoming birthday, not to mention this sleep mask is affordably priced

Review of PosyPaperCo's 2017-2018 Daily Planner

IMG_4098.JPG
IMG_4108.JPG

I would consider myself to be a pretty organized person but I find I like to write everything done and memo it in my phone. I always seem to have this anxiety that I will forget something if I don't. But with running Hello Small Shop as well as other social media platforms I realized I needed my very own planner for Hello Small Shop to help me stay organized. So I came across Posy Paper,  an etsy shop that specializes custom personal planners. I had the opportunity to review one of 's 2017-2018 personalized planners. Picture above is the Navy Water Color Floral Edition and here's what I thought:

  • I love that it's personalized and allows you to choose your start month. 
  • You can even personalize your own cover with your name/business
  • Optional laminated monthly tabs, which is what I got and find very useful since you can easily find the month you are looking for 
  • You can add a page maker or sticker sheet which is useful for those who love stickers
  • Within the planner are 12 month calendars to easily plan out your month in one view as well as a weekly planner where you have the ability to choose a horizontal or vertical week layout (I got the horizontal) 
  • Also included in the planner is a directory to help you keep important contact information on hand as well as 2 note pages between months to give you room to take notes or jot down ideas, which is how I use it!
  • The planner is strudy and durable- it is binded with an elegant gold metal spiral binding
  • I especially love the size of this planner as it can fit in almost any purse/laptop bag without taking up much room. The planner is 6"x9" without tabs and 6.5"x9" with tabs

So if you're looking for a planner for purchase I highly recommend to take a look at Posy Paper's shop! I personally think that this planner is affordably priced for the fact that you can personalize it in so many ways. So if you're convinced be sure to keep in mind shipping times before you order! For example, I ordered mine in the middle of April and it arrived right April 26th, which was perfect timing to start May!

    • Italian made crepe paper

Review of Bio Candle Company's Enchanted Rose Candle

Looking for affordable and environmentally friendly candles? Dio Candle Company specializes in just that!  Dio Candle Company was founded in 2016, after many years of making their very own candles for themselves, friends and family. The demand for their candles grew so big and so Dio Candle Company was born!  As mentioned,  Dio Candle Company's candles are affordable and environmentally friendly, but it is also important to note that Dio Candle Company prides themselves in their candles being locally harvested and USA-made soy candles with witty names.  Dio Candle Company hand pours their candles using 100% USA-grown soy wax into glass jars that are manufactured in Texas with wicks made in North Carolina.  All candles are also made in small batches to ensure maximum quality.  I had the opportunity to review Dio Candle Company's Enchanted Rose Candle, and here's what I thought:

  • Since I love candles and always light when up when I work, this candle is especially my favourite because it is beautifully scented, re-freshing and uplifting. You'll feel like you have a bouquet of roses right beside you!
  • I love how mini this candle is and the fact that it comes with a lid making it perfect for travel, wherever you need to take it
  • Affordably priced, while offering the highest quality of ingredients. This candle holds 1 ounce of all natural 100% USA-grown soy wax made with the highest quality of fragrance and natural essential oils to create a lasting Roma that will fill any room for hours
  • Glass jars are reusable and/or recyclable making them environmentally friendly! 
  • Below are some Good Candle Burning Practices Dio Candle Company shares on their website which were definitely some good pointers to me:
  1. Trim wick to 1/4" each time before burning; we do this before we ship them so they're ready to light right away!
  2. Never leave lit candles unattended.
  3. Place candles in a safe location away from children and pets.
  4. Burn for 2-4 hours at a time, allowing the wax edges to melt evenly.

Review of Hux Loves Honey's Floral Notebook

Hux Loves Honey is a small etsy shop that specializes in beautiful greeting cards and notebooks with colourful hand-painted designs. Within their shop you will find unique items that are like no others. Furthermore, all their items are affordably priced! 

We had the opportunity to review Hux Loves Honey's Blue Floral Print Notebook and here's what we thought: 

  • Compact book that can fit in almost any purse/laptop bag. This notebook is approximatively 29.6 x 21cm with 300gsm cover and 48 online pages
  • Stapled bindings. Cover is made from FSC certified paper and pages are recycled paper
  • Features a hand-painted floral illustration on the outside cover and a patterned inside cover with a little place for your name or other details
  • The notebook is not lined on the inside so the book is perfect for those who especially like brain dumping their ideas or drawing
  • Notebook comes beautifully wrapped with a bellyband and packaged in a protective cellophone sleeve
  • All products are designed by shop owner Selina and printed in the UK
  • Shipping was quick to Canada, we received this notebook in less than 7 business days which is quite impressive

REVIEW OF DOGNATTI’S CERAMIC FRENCHIE COASTERS

Are you a pet lover? Know of a pet lover? Dognatti specializes in items that animal lovers will love and adore to ensure that you stay pawesome everyday. Shop owner Leigha- is an Interior Architect/Designer by profession AND extreme dog lover by choice! 

All the items within are shop are designed and handmade by yours truly. Leigha makes everything in her shop from sketching the dog/cat designs, painting the canvas’, stapling papers to taping the packages!

With over 40 items to choose from you are bound to find something you will love. We had the pawesome opportunity to review this Frenchie Set of Coasters and here’s what we thought:

  • Although these specific coasters are not within Dognatti‘s shop they can be requested to be made as a custom order
  • A similar example to the coasters is this GoldenDooble Labradooble Coaster Set
  • Leigha is open for custom orders, so if you see something you like but envision it differently just send Dognatti a convo and see what Leigha can do for you
  • We love the vivid colours of the coasters- teal and pink are our favourite colours. These coasters are the perfect pop of colour your office, coffee table or kitchen table
  • The coasters are made of high quality ceramic tiles and are 4″ X 4″ in dimensions
  • The front of the coaster is painted by hand and sealed from moisture
  • The back is made of felt to protect furniture from scratches
  • Other than pink and teal you have the following coasters to choose from:
    • Magenta, Orange, Cyan, Mustard Yellow, Teal, Lime Green, Lilac Purple, Blue
  • These coasters are easy to clean with a damp cloth and although we consider them durable they do need to be handled with care because, after all, they are made from ceramic
  • Shipping was super fast to Canada- it basically took 7 business days for it to arrive to us!
