I am a huge supporter of small buisnesses and ones just starting out. Being a fashion merchandising major I'm learning truly just how much it takes to get your company off the ground and all the hard work that goes into making an independently owned business successful. As a blogger, I love to help support small businesses because I think they truly have some of the most original, unique ideas. I am incredibly blessed and lucky to get to try out new products and items!
I was very curious when I got contacted by a company called Tiklyz. The founders came up with the idea for their product when thinking about the small dots they would wear on their forheads as little girls in India ('Tiklis'). They were interested in bringing Eastern culture to the Western culture, however, making the dots fashionable and bold. The result is Tiklyz!
At first I was hesitant about trying them out because I thought, "well, where in the world would I wear face charms at?" Being a shy person I was scared of the attention. I found out though that the face charms are just like any other acessory; part of an outfit, part of a persona that you choose. You're able to wear them two to three times and they simply stick on you face, arranging them any where and any way you'd like. I found that went really swell with a retro look!
It's funny because in high school, girls would wear generic stickers on their face similar to these all the time for parties. It's really such a brilliant idea to come out with different sets inspired by various cities and made of different materials.
If you'd like to try out Tiklyz for yourself, you can enter to try out a free sample on their facebook page.
I wanted to let you all know that I'm actually typing from Nashville right now! We arrived today and I'm so excited to start adventuring tomorrow and...see Ed Sheeran tomorrow night! I've been taking lots of pictures and have lots of stories to tell you all soon. x
With much love, Lauren.
