Cooking in Style with Flirty Aprons {Review & Giveaway}

Flirty Aprons logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Brooke T!}

I have grand aspirations to be a foodie someday.

Not the eating kind that I am now, mind you, but the kind that know food. The people who feel at home in any kitchen and can pull together an assortment of random ingredients and turn them into a delicious, fulfilling meal.

For now, I'll have to be content with at least knowing my way around my own kitchen and being able to follow a recipe well. Ask me if your soup needs more Oregano and I'll look at you blankly. But if you tell me how many teaspoons of salt to put in, I'm all over that.

Although the lack of time around here hinders the amount of home-cooked meals that end up on our table, I do still get a burst of inspiration now and again to head in there and attempt to whip up some tasty results. Something that sure helps? Knowing that I can be productive in the kitchen while have having fun and looking good thanks to FlirtyAprons.com.

Flirty ApronsDefinitely the site to go to for aprons that will make any woman look and feel beautiful, Flirty Aprons has found a way to involve fun and fashion while performing traditional, everyday activities. Their wide selection of stylish and high quality aprons come in so many great colors and patterns that there is sure to be at least one that fits your personality and decor.

Although there are so many great options to choose from that I had a difficult time picking a favorite, I knew that there just wouldn't be a way to bring a bigger smile to my kids' faces than them seeing me cook in the Women's Original Frosted Cupcake design.

women's apronsIs there anything cuter? Bright, girly colors combined with cheerful polka dots and yummy little cupcakes? Even before I had this apron out of the packaging, I already knew that it was going to be a great incentive to get to work on my next meal.

Flirty Aprons reviewAside from the obvious ultra-attractiveness, the first thing I noticed when checking out this apron was the condition of the item itself and the workmanship that went into making it. The 100% soft cotton fabric was fully lined, each seam was clean and strong, and the double-layer thickness was just right for protection from spills and messes.

Measuring in at 27.5" in length and 26" in width (from ruffle end to ruffle end) with generous ties on each side and an adjustable neck, this apron truly does fit all sizes without being overly baggy or frumpy looking. I love the customization and the way that multiple people could wear one Flirty Apron and have it work... or you could purchase them as gifts for a variety of people and never worry about choosing the wrong size.

Instead, you (or your recipient) can simply pull this out, tie it on and know that when the cookies are done or the lasagna comes out of the pan that you'll have stayed clean and comfortable. And, of course, looking good!

cute women's apronsIn fact, although I have been enjoying this feminine, durable apron myself, it wasn't a huge surprise that I wasn't the only one drawn to the cuteness of the cupcake pattern.

Knowing that kids are anxious to help out with the cooking Flirty Aprons does have a full line of children's aprons are an even cuter, scaled-down version of the women's designs. Or, if the man in your life is the chef around your house, the men's line features strong, durable options that are manly enough for even the most masculine cook.

children's apronsFollowing their mission to create products that truly help you rediscover what it means to be cute and fun in and around your home even while performing a mundane task, Flirty Aprons has done just that. Their bright colors, fun patterns and sassy styles are a welcome change compared to the usual aprons found in stores or online.

Add to that the high quality (even after multiple wearings and washings, my apron hasn't torn or faded one bit), affordability, easy return policy and stellar customer service and this is the site to go to for a unique and stylish item for yourself or as a gift. For your next housewarming party, bridal shower, birthday or more, a purchase from Flirty Aprons can help make cooking fun for just about anyone!

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will add a little style to their kitchen, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of apron from Flirty Aprons!
