Make My Maxi : Calling all #Fashionistas

WahmReviewer Cecily Bulter

I received these products for free to base this review on. All thoughts and written words are my own.

When I saw that Make My Maxi was up for a review I jumped at the chance.  I messaged Rachel and discussed options for the review and we decided on her headwraps. I chose a gray one, because I like neutrals and then asked her to surprise me with a black and white one because she had such a variety of black and white choices. The school I work for, and my kids attend, colors are black and white. She sent me an adorable chevron one. And there was a coupon for another one too!!!

She was very quick with her responses even when I was not so quick with mine. Rachel works out of her home so she can spend time with her two young daughters. I love being able to do business with a person or company that I know I helping directly. Rachel makes headwraps, maxi skirts, circle skirts and more for both grown up and little girls. You can send her fabric or chose from fabric she has. Her items are very reasonable considering the time she spends making these items herself. She does adjust pricing based on whether you send her the fabric or she supplies it. You can find pictures of available fabric, and instructions for order on her Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/MakeMyMaxi , there’s a link to her etsy shop right there on the page as well.

She was very quick with sending out my head-wraps. I was super excited to get the package in the mail. I love them both headwraps are stretchy enough to fit me and both of my daughters. Plus they are both made of super soft fabric. They are also very versatile. You can wear them multiple ways. You can wear them wide and over your ears, or with the ‘knot’ in front, or fold them or scrunch them up to make the narrow. They are not too loose and not to tight. Kind of reminds me of “The Three Bears”, they fit just right!

Lap Log from Bamboosa

This week, I am going to tell you about an American-made product that you might not know you need, but I’m going to tell you… you need it. It’s a Lap Log, made in South Carolina by Bamboosa. A Lap Log is a cylindrical bean bag (buckwheat hull bag, actually), sewn into an organic cotton twill cover, which has a pocket to secure a hand-sanded repurposed wood insert that holds your iPad,Kindle, Nook, or any kind of tablet.  It rests comfortably on your lap and adjusts simply on any surface.  It is light, comfortable, even kind of cuddly.  I loved it the moment I got my hands on it.

My Lap Log arrived in a nice sturdy box, and when I opened it up, I got a pleasant surprise. The Log was nicely wrapped in tissue paper with a discreet recycled paper sticker on it. Because the Lap Log comes in a variety of colours I was able to choose the one I liked the most! Would you love to see it? Okay, here it is!

Lap Log WAHMReview

The one I received for this review is called Orchid Blooms. I love the flowers, what can I say, anything with flowers in a great item in my books! Each Lap Log is around 11″ X 6″, though the dimensions may vary slightly because they are handmade. The width of the interior of the wooden insert is 0.625 inches, so anything under that will fit.

I really wanted to test the Lap Log in many different places. From the Hair salon, in the car with my kidlets , letting others try it. To the library and more. I got some awesome reviews from clients and other family members how nice it is to be “handfree” while still being able to see the screen on their lap, on their desk to the floor and coffee table. I know my own daughter wanted to “keep it “ for herself . I think I just might have to get her one for her birthday in a few months.
