Hard Candy House sponsored me for the first time! I love their products, so I was flattered when they decided to sponsor me. They make so many super cute accessories that fit a variety of styles. Check out their Etsy store too!
Even the packaging was cute: Check out the cute heart tape! I was really excited to see this package!
Everything was safely packaged; there were no damages to the items. I was very pleased with the care Hard Candy House took in their packaging.
When I opened up the mailer, I found a package wrapped in polka-dot tissue paper! Upon opening this inner package, I found more packaging. Each item was wrapped in its own tissue paper and plastic bag.
As you can see above, Hard Candy House provided a coupon code: you can use “XIAO150603” to get 15% off! This is an amazing deal!! (NOTE: in the above image, the coupon code is incorrect. To get 15% off, you must use the code “XIAO150603″ — Let me know if you have any issues.)
Now, let’s go through each item in the batch! I noticed that the items seemed to be in one of two categories: an exclusive set of pink items from the Good Girl collection, and a set of cherry-themed items from the Cherry Tart collection. All items from these collections are one-of-a-kind! First, let’s take a look at the Good Girl collection!
Below, you’ll see two photos of a necklace taken in natural lighting.
When I first unwrapped this necklace, I thought it was a hairbow! The jumbo bow pendant is super cute. I love the details such as the heart charm and the string of faux pearls. The print on the bow is cute and versatile as well! I think this bow could work for sweet lolita, classic lolita, and even hime gyaru fashion! This necklace would be a great statement piece with a simple outfit as well.
Here is a photo of the necklace taken in indoor lighting:
The construction is sturdy, so don’t be afraid to wear this outside!
The next item in this pink collection is a flower accessory that can double as a hairclip and a brooch!
I love how some of the petals use the same fabric as the bow on the necklace. This little detail really brings the set together. The string of pearls and the color scheme also add consistency; if you wear this hair accessory with the necklace, it truly is a perfect match. If you wear them separately, they would still be super cute!
I’m glad that the backing has a French clip as an option! This is one of my favorite types of clip because it’s sturdy and works well with thick hair. You can use clip this flower into your hair or your wig, or you can pin it to your top, skirt, dress, purse… you name it!
The next accessory is absolutely adorable: a bow with generously dangling charms that you can clip onto your backpack or purse! Now, you can bling out your bag to match your outfit and other pink accessories. This bow looks almost the same as the one on the necklace, and it uses the same fabric. The charms include faux crystals, faux pearls, a flower bead, and a cute fuzzy teddy bear (and more!)!
Despite the huge amount of charms, it doesn’t feel too heavy. I don’t think the charms will rip the bow. The clip on the top is easy to use!
Hard Candy House also sent me the following pair of earrings from the Good Girl collection. They’re super cute and I love how the tiny bows use the same fabric as all the other accessories in the collection. The construction is sturdy and the design is lovely!
Unfortunately, I have extremely sensitive ears, so I cannot wear these earrings. (I can only wear sterling silver or gold earrings.) But if you don’t have sensitive ears, be sure to check out Hard Candy House‘s earrings! They have so many pretty designs.
I was lucky enough to schedule a photoshoot with Studio du Petit Oiseau to feature the items from the Good Girl collection! Here are some of my favorite photos from the shoot:
And here’s a great shot of my full outfit that the photographer captured:
What do you think? I love how the Good Girl hair accessory and necklace bring out the pastel colors in my t-shirt. Check out more photos from the photoshoot in this album on my Facebook page.
Hard Candy House also sent me some items from the Cherry Tart collection, but I will review those in a separate post. You can see the flower accessory from the Good Girl collection and two items from the Cherry Tart collection in this gifset I posted on my Tumblr. You can also check out this album for clear photos of the products themselves.
Here are some great items you can check out from the Cherry Tart collection in the meantime:
- Cherry Gingham Choker

- ChunkyCherry Bracelet: PolkaDots & Ants
- ChunkyCherry Bracelet: Strawberry & Watermelon
