Boojiboo: Review and Giveaway!


Are you a domestic goddess? If so Boojiboo aprons are for you….but what if your kitchen style is more take-out than cook-off? Boojiboo aprons are still for you too! No matter how you look at it Boojiboo aprons are great in the kitchen as well as out of it. Put it over your dress when you entertain and serve your guests or even just around the house when you clean! Seriously when you wear an amazing Boojiboo original creation there is no way you can go back to the simple old aprons that make you look like a giant marshmallow!

The Review:

As you may know, Boojiboo was my first product review and I was so excited! Boojiboo is a mother and her two daughter operation that specializes in making amazing retro aprons that are not only stylish but fully functional. Not only does she make aprons for grown-ups but she has matching aprons for your little ones so you can bake and cook in style While their specialty is aprons that is not all they sell because they sell drink coaster and tea towels as well. When she approached me, wondering if I would want to do a review and giveaway, I jumped on the chance! After spending a long and difficult time thinking about what apron to choose to do my review on I finally chose The BELLA Vintage Inspired Pink Lotus Water Lily Full Apron!

When I got the apron I put it on right away and was really impressed not only by the quality and design but just how chic it looked! When my sister first saw it she actually thought that it was a new dress that I had bought and was shocked when I informed her that it was actually an apron! I love how there is a pocket in front so that I can store different utensils and that it is a nice contrast to the dress! I loved how the apron fit and that there were ties for around the neck and around the waist that nicely contrasted the fabric of the apron and allowed for the apron to be adjusted to the wearer’s preference. The details that are put in this apron are amazing and how the top part of the apron is tight fitting and streamlined, how there is a very flattering sweetheart neckline and the apron then flows down into a flowy skirt.

If you want to get one of these amazing aprons head on over to Boojiboo! They are so affordable for only $28.75 for the apron that I received. I love the selection of different fabrics and styles that are offered and trust me with 5,105 sales these aprons sell like hotcakes! And if you have your eye on a certain apron in a certain fabric act fast because sometimes they only have a limited amount of aprons in certain fabrics, and you might be disappointed if you don’t get the fabric you love!

The Interview:

Lets get to know a little bit more about the talented designer behind Boojiboo! Here is her interview:

Name: Valda
Name of shop: Boojiboo
Location: Los Angeles

Favourite item from your shop: My favorite item would have to be the BELLA apron in the Canary Birdseed fabric, the birdies are just too cute, and the Bella is my favorite apron style.

Tell us a little bit about yourself: I'm a Mother to four kids, two boys and two girls. Besides sewing, knitting and crocheting are my favorite hobbies! I'm a grandma as well, but I have 'granddogs' (two boxers, Maggie and Stinky!) rather than grandkids. They keep me company while the kids are at work and school.

When and what made you want to open up your shop? I've always loved creating things, ever since I was a little girl. I would stay up for hours embroidering/hand-sewing pieces of fabric together. It was therapeautic for me, and I could always feel accomplished because I was able to make something myself. After I got married and the kids grew up, I had more time to myself and decided to pick up my hobbies again. When I realized I could make money doing what I love, Boojiboo started!

Creation process: We don't make one apron at a time, on average about 50-60 a week. I will spend 1-2 days cutting all the fabric, 3-4 days of non-stop sewing, and then 1-2 days of ironing, folding, and packing the aprons. Sometimes it's a little less, sometimes a little more, it all depends on how many I need to cut, which styles I need more of, and how many custom orders I may have.

Where do you draw inspiration for all your amazing designs?
I've always had a love for vintage things. I would dream of living in the 50's and 60's, everything was so glamorous back then! When i think "retro", flirty skirts and hour glass figures co me to mind, I think that is emphasized in our Bella apron. My daughters also have a say in the overall design of an apron, and ultimately give the 'yay' or 'nay'. They sort of guarantee the aprons will appeal to all generations and not just mine.

If you could be an animal what would you be and why?
I think I'd like to be a dog. But not any dog, I want to be one of Oprah's dogs. They must live a life of luxury!

If you could have one super power what would it be and why?I would like to have the ability to fly. It would be so much quicker to travel, and much cheaper, too :)
