Blingtastic! Our review on Teething Bling!

Happy New Year to you all!
Sorry it's taken me so long to update the blog but alot has been happening over here at the purple cottage.

I have so many reviews to post up here over the next few days and a new competition coming soon!!

So let's settle down to our first review of 2012 Teething Bling.

I had heard so much about Teething Bling from other Mummy blogs and also on Facebook and Twitter so I thought I would take the plunge and buy myself a necklace.  Dual purpose for me as I felt a bit naked not wearing a necklace anymore and also Melody is on her ninth tooth and has taken to biting Mummy and Daddy's fingers and toes ...ouch!

So off I went to the smartmums website to make my first purchase of Teething Bling.  The website is very easy to use and the range of necklaces and bangles is fabulous.  They use Nochex as their online payment system which I was very happy with as its easy to use and very secure.  I choose two neutral colour pieces their Vanilla Bean necklace and their Tan bangle, so I could wear them with as many outfits as possible.
Within two days (very quick delivery) my bling arrived and I sat with Melody on my knee as we opened our goodies, with joint excitement.

The verdict well Melody crawled off with the bangle and sat happily for 30 mintutes chewing and banging it on the floor and when she decided to crawl back I had put on my necklace which she gave some strong tugs to and then proceeded to much on the pendant.  So off we went out for a meal with daddy where while waiting for the food I gave her my bangle to play with (brilliant as she loves to bang things on her highchair tray and because of its rubbery material it didn't make too much noise to annoy other diners).  Then when she was tierd on the higchair she sat on my lap where instead of grabbing anything remotely close from the table and throwing it on the floor (her usual trick) she grabbed the pendant on my necklace and happily sat chewing away on it.

Now whenever I go out even for small supermarket trips the Teething Bling is a must, my only problem is what colour and design to choose next! In my opinion one of my new must have items in our go anywhere change bag.
