Bula Jean's Boutique Review & Giveaway


I'm extremely honored to be featuring Andrea and her amazing shop, Bula Jean's Boutique on Mom-a-Logues.

"Bula" is a nickname Andrea's husband calls her - she's a self proclaimed craft-o-holic and a scrap-bin junkie.  She's been collecting and saving things that one day be useful since she was a pre-school.  Before the days of recycling her Mom had to bury plastic containers, act at the bottom of the trash, so that Andrea wouldn't pick them out.  She's obsessed with finding new uses for things that other's throw out.

Andrea is also a blessed mommy to an 18-month old little angle and month-old twins!  Ever since her home began to fill up with baby items, she's been left wanting more.  More organic - less plastics, more natural - less chemicals, more quality - less waste.  This is what she aims to provide with her new products.


Andrea creates this fabulous shirt for Alexa.  


If you haven't heard the "What does the fox say?" song by now, you've been living under a rock.  Take the time to youtube it, if you haven't already!

It's a popular song that the girls heard on the Disney channel and now are completely obsessed with.  It's kind of a silly song, but really really catchy - one that has the potential to get stuck in your head for days.

Alexa was THRILLED when she saw this shirt arrive in our mailbox.  It truly made her smile.  She was so anxious to wear it to school to show it off to her friends, who are equally obsessed with the song.

The sweet fox is sewn on the t-shirt in a professional way.  It's a soft orange fleece with button eyes and nose.  His tail wraps around to the back side of the shirt giving it some dimension. 

And of course, the famous question in the word bubble, "what does the fox say?"



Here are some of my other favorites from Andrea's collection.

Newsboy Caps
Andrea's collection of newsboy caps are a fun accessory for boys and girls.  
The best part is that they are reversible so you're getting a pretty sweet 2-for-1!

The hat above is a high-qualiy upcycled corduroy on the outside and you can choose the lining print from the many Andrea has to offer.  

Newborn to child sizes available.


Winter Hats & Mittens
Andrea specializes in making her products gender neutral.  Who says a little girl can't like the color blue, a race car or a tonka truck?  And a boy like the color red or the ever popular 'owl' design.

Andrea's collections are all customizable to fit the your needs and to match your child's unique personality!

The gnome/pixie is made from 100% felted cashmere and wool and offers a velcro closure chin strap to keep your little ones cheeks and neck extra warm.  


Bitty Brim Hats
Andrea uses repurposed materials whenever possible.  Designing her bitty brim hats are no exception.   This means sturdy denim, corduroy, canvas, tweed and wool for the outer part of the hat and it's lined with a soft cotton print.

These fabulous brim hats are a great way to keep your kiddos heads cool and protected from the sun in the summer.  The short brim also protects their eyes.


Eco Shoes
Andrea's eco-friendly shoes are either lined with warm fleece or cool cotton and are nice for your littles to romp around inside or out.  The offer a non-skid, reclaimed leather or thick sturdy vinyl for older children.  No more slipping and sliding on the hardwood floors.  The elastic around the ankle keeps the shoes on and feeling comfortable.  


Onsies 
So many cute onsie options available in Bula Jean's Boutique.  They are all original designs and perfect for a photo shoot or special occasion.  


It was so fun working with Andrea on this project.  She was so sweet to create something that my daughter really loved and we're happy to know that she used repurposed materials for most of her designs.

If you're looking for a fun, unique gift for your kiddos or that special someone on your shopping list, be sure to visit Bula Jean's Boutique on Etsy and if there's something you'd like to request Andrea make, she welcomes the custom orders.
