Happy Magpie Review and Giveaway {closed}

Congrats to winning comment 56!

I am a crunchy Mama and I happen to be pregnant so its not a shock that I fell in love with Happy Magpie. Not only do they make organic maternity tees but their shirts are also made in the USA! Dreamy!

Since my name is Maggie and I have been known to talk and talk and talk, I have developed the nickname Magpie. I knew it was a bird but thats all I knew. Thanks to this awesome company I learned that in Chinese and Korean folklore the magpie is called the “bird of joy” and “happy magpie” and is considered a symbol of happiness and good fortune. It is believed that chattering magpies deliver good news and foretell the arrival of cherished guests.

Counting magpie flocks have long been thought to foretell the future of births, weddings and wealth. There are many old-age rhymes that refer to this magpie predictor. One version of the rhyme reads:

One for tomorrow, two for joy,
Three for a girl, four for a boy,
Five for silver, six for gold,
Seven for a secret never to be told,
Eight for a wish, nine for a kiss,
Ten is a bird you just can’t miss.


They sent me their graffiti shirt in Large and boy oh boy was I impressed. It takes a lot to impress me with clothing since I am an All-American Tshirt and Jeans girl but I am IN LOVE, like the swooning type of love. First of all, this shirt is completely flattering. It has rouching up the sides to help make it a fancy tee. I love how cute it looks with the rouching as I have never owned anything rouched before and I was unsure how it would actually look. Second, it is somewhat tight, which I would hate if I didn't have a baby in my belly but I love because it is snuggly and really sweet.

Well, this wouldn't be an Earth Month celebration if I couldn't offer one winner their choice of organic shirt. Drop on in and visit The Happy Magpie and find your favorite shirt that they sell. Come by here and tell me which shirt and size you would like to own!
