Hip Mountain Mama☆Review

The lovely Suzy over at Hip Mountain Mama contacted me a couple weeks ago to see if I would like to do a product review of something she sells in her shop. If you haven't heard of Hip Mountain Mama it's a family run business that sells amazing funky and bohemian finds for your body and home. I have been a window shopper for some time now so when Suzy contacted me I was more than willing to help spread the word about this great site. We emailed back and forth for a bit and decided on the Mother Earth Long-sleeve shirt for me.
HOLY MOTHER OF SOFTNESS. When I got the package and opened it I immediately found myself rubbing this beautiful shirt on my face and Joey's back as he was bathing the kiddos. It is made by a company called Soul Flower, another company I've been an avid window shopper of for some time now, in the US and with organic cotton. And can I also just say how beautiful the print on the shirt is? I can see myself wearing this shirt all through winter, staying warm in it and snuggling up to babies. 
 Outfit details:
Mother Earth Long-sleeve: c/o Hip Mountain Mama
Yellow circle scarf: O Bella Organics
Skirt: Borrowed, then stolen, from a friend

I also fell even more in love with it when I discovered it was perfect for supporting breastfeeding. The neckline is just right to pull it down without a wrestling match. I like the ease of this since nursing is still very much an integral part of our day. 
This holiday season even if you only bought one item from a small business owner, we could make a huge impact! 

Support small business owners. Support handmade. And support Suzy because she's one heck of a rad gal!

She also wanted to offer my readers a chance to win a $20 gift certificate. To enter you must be a follower of my blog and simply leave a comment letting me know what your favorite item in her shop is. You can get one more entry if you share this post so we can share the love. This giveaway will close on Monday night, December 10th.

Also, if you are Footling Mama please email me at katelyndemidowphotography(at)yahoo(dot)com so I can get you your copy of EC Simplified. If I don't hear from you by Friday I will choose a new winner.
Peace and Love.

  2. This top looks great on you. It looks cozy and I love the earthy look. Is Hip Mountain Mama connected to Synergy Organic Clothing somehow? I see on her website some of the same designs but I don't see anything in her bio about it. I'm in love with Synergy.

    If I won the giveaway I would likely buy the same top you chose! It's great for the winter season.
