#2 Sick For Cute Review and Giveaway!



Momma Told Me: A part of everyone remains a kid, no matter how old.

I think I shall never 'grow up'. What is the growing up they speak of? Is there a badge or plaque? What milestone turns bunnies into rabbits, and imagination into ingenuity? Doesn't everyone deserve to feel like a kid every now and then, and why should those who work so hard go without a little fun? There are many questions I have, and some may argue this is part of my childlike nature I will never outgrow. But one thing is for sure, cute is for everyone, and this is a motto we all could use a little more of.


Conceptualized in 2005,and originally titled 'Kid Pirate', Sick For Cute was started by Lindsay and Tyler Gibson with a small base of screen printed tees and adorable designs. For just over a year the duo enjoyed success with their quirky and adorable designs as they expanded online. Before long this twosome realized they could truly make 'cute' universal, and expanded the line to an extensive collection of accessories, clothes, and novelty items. Today, Sick For Cute has a colorful and engaging storefront online as sickforcute.com, and an equally engaging Etsy shop called Em and Sprout.


When shopping for the hip, young, and fun loving this holiday, Sick For Cute is the premium choice for unique and affordable gifts. Average prices range from $5-$15 with a wide selection of graphic tees and kawaii styled jewelry. There's even a strong presence of Alice and Wonderland themed totes and cotton dresses. I love how affordable the pricing is, and many of the characters and designs, that are popular over seas, are hard to find in America.


If you're a foodie, such as myself, or love tongue in cheek food shaped items you'll love the hamburger cap and Oreo Cookie Compact! For those who are nostalgic and love the retro, Sick For Cute has a great selection of lunchboxes with favorites such as The Smurfs and Hostess! There's something for every taste, and even the men! You'll find men's tees, belts, and totes, as well as a lot of unisex products.


Love cute things, but frustrated at the lack of selection in your size? Sick For Cute has a special plus size section with fashionable and cute clothes! Just another reason to knock out some early Christmas shopping for multiple people on your shopping list. One of my favorite things to do is stop in and check out the Weekly Deals and Clearance items. There's always a few items in the $5 range, perfect for stocking stuffers, and their low prices are even lower on closeout items.


Lindsay was kind enough to send me some items of my choosing for review. I was sent an adorable Hostess cupcake box, perfect for an actual cupcake, or misc jewelry and office supplies. The box is a little larger than an actual Hostess cupcake and came packaged with actual tags and merchandising for gifting. Would you believe this adorable multi-purpose box is just $5 in the Sick For Cute shop? I was also sent a Mini Mushroom Light which retails for $8 in the shop and operates on batteries. Simply push down on the Mario inspired mini lamp and it lights up with an adorable glow that matches it's top! I just love this in the night when I'm fumbling around in my bathroom, or by my bedside!


So get your shopping done early, and head over to Sick For Cute soon to snap up all those
amazing clearance and weekly deals!

What Daughter Says: I love indulging my kid at Sick For Cute, and my stocking will be stuffed with all the cutest goodies this year!
