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!

Ancient Wisdom Jewelry by Cynthia #Fashion #Jewelry

WAHMReviewer – Laura Heinle

This summer I had the amazing opportunity to meet a wonderful kindred spirit at a street fair here in town. She just so happens to create beautiful jewelry using healing stones. I was taken in by the beauty of all of her jewelry. The fact that it is all handmade is an absolute plus!

Cynthia started her business in March of 2014 as an outlet for her creativity and her passion for healing. Each piece is created with love and it shows! Just look at these beauties!

Aren’t they stunning!?

They aren’t just beautiful to wear; they will help you with various things as you wear them! The ear rings I pictured above are made of rainbow moonstone, garnet, citrine and clear quartz. On Cynthia’s Aincient Wisdom website, you can find the description of each of these stones and how they will help you. For instance, in the description of the ear rings, you will find that rainbow moonstone can help with self-discovery, and that garnet can help enhance one’s vitality! I think I’ll take a pair of those earrings!

Ancient Wisdom Earrings

For this review, Cynthia made a pair of earrings just for me! Mine are made with sterling silver wire, labradorite, rainbow moonstone and clear quartz. Along with my earrings I got a print out from Cynthia that had information about each of these stones. Labradorite can help with recognizing and enhancing one’s intuitive abilities. Rainbow moonstone is a stone of self-discovery, insight into the self and intuition. Clear quartz is a stone of amplification of other stones. It also brings clarity of mind and eliminates confusion by showing purpose to the heart and mind. I LOVE these ear rings. My ears a very sensitive to certain metals and I can wear these with no problem because the sterling silver she uses is solid, not plated.

I hope you take the time to browse her online store.
You can also  find her on facebook.

Charmsations with Angie Campbell

WAHM Reviewer- Cecily Butler

WOW! That’s the first thought that came to mind when I checked out Angie’s webpage at Charmstations – Angie Campbell.

These items were just so cool. Key chains and bracelets you can personalize- easily!! Not with just names but teams and companies too. I’ve seen other companies with similar items, but this one really fits my style. It’s blingy and girly with out being over the top. I LOVE it!!

When I first talked to Angie I was shocked to find out she is stationed with her husband in Korea. I loved that this company is willing to help support the families of our men and women in the military by working with them even when they are overseas. I instantly told my friend whose sister is living in Germany right now as this might be a great opportunity for her too.

When you go to the site there are several options. You can make your own or buy ready to go. They even have party kits and pet collars!! They have another section called “A Bit More Sparkle” that has a different style of bracelets and watches too.

Angie sent me a black key-chain with two blue flowers and the letters for “WAHM” on it. I LOVE it! I think it so awesome to be able to advertise for our Review company all the time. I’ve gotten several compliments on my key chain too. Not only was my keychain adorable, but I was really impressed with the quality too. The prices are really nice too!!

At this point you can’t buy the individual charms from the website yourself, but you can get them from the consultant. They are easy to switch out as well.

This is a great way to support your favorite team, cause, or company. It would also be a great incentive or just because gift. To order yourself contact Angie at Charmstations – Angie Campbell.
