Confession time: Call me a mean mum but sometimes I purposely choose a different route through the shopping centre so that my girls don’t get to pass our local Smiggle store. They are madly in love with everything Smiggle and can easily spend an hour admiring all the treasures in this fabulous shop, especially since the release of the gorgeous Smile with Smiggle collection. This wonderful range of fun, trendy and budget-friendly hair accessories, rings, bracelets, necklaces and more is every girl’s dream and there is so much to choose from!

As if these treasures are not already affordable enough, right now when you buy two, you get the third FREE on all ‘Smile with Smiggle’ jewellery. What a fantastic opportunity to stock up on stocking fillers without breaking your tight Christmas budget! Hurry, this great offer is valid for a limited time only. 

If your little lady is as crazy about unicorns as my girls are you are going to love this amazing prize pack the Smiggle team put together for one lucky Hip Little One reader:

There is no doubt about it, this magical Smile Unicorn Headband (RRP $14.95) is going to be a top seller this festive season. With unicorns being so incredibly popular right now this pretty number will be taking up no.1 spot on many wish lists, I know my girls would love it! Featuring silver sparkles and beautiful pink flowers this headband allows every little girl to turn into a real unicorn in the blink of an eye.

Trodding along the unicorn trail we come across this cute Smile Fabulous Earrings 3-pack (RRP $9.95, ages 6+), after all who can resist a sparkly unicorn! Made from hypo-allergenic materials and completely nickel-free, just like the rest of the Smile with Smiggle range, these sweet earrings are perfect for girls of all ages. There are loads of different earring designs to choose from and with 3 styles per set you can swap your earrings as often as you like.

Of course not every girl likes pink or purple, which is why Smiggle accessories come in a rainbow of colours. The Smile Dee Unicorn Necklace (RRP $12.95, ages 6+) is available in a mystical blue shade and comes with an adjustable ball-chain so you can create the perfect fit for you. Cupcakes, rainbows, owls, butterflies, cats… picking a favourite necklace from the range is not an easy task so I am glad I have four darling daughters to buy for.

When it comes to party bags and Christmas stockings I can highly recommend the Smiggle ring sets, with six different rings per pack they are excellent value for money and (if desired) you can easily split the sets up and treat multiple girls to a ring or two. The Smile Livvy Rings 6-pack (RRP $12.95, ages 6+) features flowers, love hearts, stars and jewels and the rings are slightly adjustable in size so you can’t go wrong there.

Last but not least, loyal Hip Little One readers will know by now how much I love charm bracelets and there is no shortage of delightful charms at Smiggle. The Smiggle charm bracelets are so well priced yet look a million dollars, they will be my go-to gift for upcoming birthdays. Sticking with the unicorn theme the Smile Daydream Bracelet (RRP $9.95, ages 6+) is an excellent match, I think we’ll have one very happy giveaway winner when she sees this!

Petal Blossom

It is not a secret that my girls love gorgeous clothes (just like mummy). They like picking out which dresses to wear and matching it up with the right shoes and accessories. Especially now that they are wearing a school uniform most of the time they really enjoy something a bit more special and colourful when it’s not a school day. Between my three girls we have a big box of hair accessories and I think we’ll have to add some of these little delights from Petal Blossom very soon:

Petal Blossom

Petal Blossom accessories are lovingly handmade in Adelaide, South Australia. Sweet hair clips and headbands, cute hair ties and even a dedicated range of Easter goodies, if you are looking for a unique piece to brighten your daughter’s day you are sure to find it here (and it won’t break the bank!).

Rainbow ConnectionThis adorable 4-piece Rainbow Connection set ($11.96) is one of my favourite Petal Blossom designs, you can pick it up on sale at Mickey House Kids. The two eye catching ribbon alligator clips with rainbows and clouds are the ultimate accessory for a pair of piggy tails, one for the left side and one for the right side. And how sweet are the lollipop hair ties? I know my girls would totally love this.

Pinkberry Kisses

Now that the twins are in primary school and have to wear school uniforms most days of the week miss 5 is unable to wear her usual colourful clips, beautiful headbands and cute bows and she is not happy about it. She loves her hair accessories and aside from the style aspect she also really needs them to keep her hair tidy. Luckily there is hope for stylish little students thanks to Pinkberry Kisses:

Pinkberry Kisses Grace BowYou may already know Pinkberry Kisses from its gorgeous range of hair pretties, handmade right here in Australia by lovely mum-of-two Lisa, but did you know they even have a dedicated School Hair Accessories collection? Clippies, bows, streamers, headbands, they’ve got it all and you can order every design in the colours of your child’s school so they are sure to pass the ‘school uniform test’.

Over the last few years my girls have tried many Pinkberry Kisses designs and they’re all beautifully made with lots of attention to detail. Our school favourites are the clippie sets and the small bows, they look beautiful, classy and are great for keeping those loose strands of hair away from the face. Whether you want one or two different colours, one single bow or a set, it’s all possible when you buy handmade. If you have a little girl in school why not surprise her with a lovely parcel of school hair accessories? Postage is just $2 Australia wide.

Itty Bitty Box

When I announced the arrival of our youngest daughter 8 weeks ago I wrote about how shocked I was that the baby was a girl. I really expected it to be a boy and we hadn’t even decided on a girls name. Now I can’t imagine any different and I am so pleased we have another little princess in our castle. I know my husband is far from a professional photographer but I think he did a fabulous job capturing our gorgeous little princess in this divine Miss AnnaSophia tutu from Itty Bitty Box:

Sybil (8 weeks old)

Sybil (8 weeks old)

Ava TutuDesigned right here in Australia the Miss AnnaSophia range is handmade and made to order, this means you can create your own unique design in your choice of colours without having to do the hard work. The handywork is being done by a talented mum from Melbourne inspired by her own little minifashionista. These divine tutus are perfect for parties and special occasions, photo shoots or of course just to twirl around the house in.

Anna TutuMiss AnnaSophia tutus are made from gorgeous soft tulle in one or multiple colours. The scrumptious tulle is being held together by a matching ribbon or crochet band and finished with a beautiful flower detail. Whether you prefer sweet pastel colours or bright and funky, one-tone or a mix of different shades, it is completely up to and no two tutus are the same. Usually it takes just 24 hours for your custom order to be ready, it can’t get much quicker than that! (In busy times it can take a few days longer)

Tutu HawthornThe tutus are designed for little girls aged 0-7 and priced between $35 (size 0-1) and $50 (size 6-7). To compliment the look you can purchase a matching headband for just $10 when ordering your tutu. As you can imagine my other two girls were a little disappointed they didn’t get to wear a tutu so I might consider ordering a special ‘Olivia’ and ‘Juliet’ too, I am already brainstorming about the colours.
