Slugs & Snails: A review and giveaway!






When Odin was a little babe, I heard about the company Slugs & Snails and immediately fell in love. I myself am a huge fan of tights and to find a company that made tights suited for boys was an absolute dream. Odin's first reaction to his new tights was equally exciting, as you can see! Unlike socks, baby tights stay on baby's feet and if you're a babywearer, tights don't ride up. Kathleen's tights are excellent for boy or girl and I must admit, I am hopelessly addicted to all of their patterns. It was really great to find something in the tights genre that wasn't pink or ruffly. We've used them since Odin was a few months old and I am continuously buying the next size up as needed. They're great for any age babe for a million different reasons, convenience being a big one on our part. As an under layer in the Winter or as the only layer in the Spring or Fall, they really are great all the time! They've been able to tough it through Odin's crawling phase and now that he's walking and in size 2-3, they're holding up beautifully through mud puddle splashes and rolling around in the garden. 

I'm really excited to announce that we will be giving away four pairs of these amazing tights to four different winners, hosted by Dancey Pants Disco and courtesy of Slugs & Snails. Two pairs of tights will be given away right here on the blog and another two will be available through an Instagram (@michellemakesthings) giveaway! I'm thrilled to be able to work with Slugs & Snails and even more excited to turn some of you on to these amazing little creations. The winners will be able to pick their style and size from the amazing collection online, I'm a little bit jealous and wish I could enter myself ;) (the mushroom ones are my favorite and I desperately need to buy a bigger size, since ours are a wee bit too small)!

For the blog giveaway:

First entry- Head on over to the Slugs & Snails Facebook page and hit "like." After that, share this post on your Facebook wall or on your blog and leave a comment here letting us know you've done so!

For a second entry- on the blog giveaway, leave a separate comment here letting us know which tights you would pick if you won! There are some really amazing options on the Slugs & Snails site!

So there you have it. You can enter up to three times here on the blog and then hop on over to my Instagram and see how to enter there. I am ridiculously excited about this giveaway and am so happy to be able to sponsor it. The giveaway will end in one week, on Friday September 27th at 10pm EST. The winners will be chosen the following day. Thank you for entering and good luck!!!
