Well, what can I say? Life with 6 kids under 10 is hard work. It’s good our darling Ted has the most beautiful smile in the whole wide world as he sure is keeping us on our toes! We are still battling with reflux, severe lack of sleep and sadly our first attempts at solids indicate that we will be going down the food allergy route once again. To add to Ted’s misery (and ours) his first teeth seem to be on the way, so it’s rosy cheeks and sad faces all around. Thankfully distraction and relief has arrived from ONE.CHEW.THREE HQ:

Aussie mama Elisa knows all about those bothersome little toothy pegs and the trouble they cause for tiny babies (and their families), which is why she created ONE.CHEW.THREE. This gorgeous online boutique comes to the rescue with a wide range of designer teething products that bring comfort to teething babies and class to their mamas, double win!

When you are surrounded by many grabby hands and chomping teeth your fancy jewellery quickly ends up at the back of your drawer, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up on accessorising. Featuring my favourite shades of timeless blue this pretty Ruby Nursing Necklace (RRP $22.95) is stylish, safe and super versatile, it goes with absolutely everything! It’s such an easy way to keep Ted happy when waiting at the shop, the doctor, at school or anywhere I am holding him.

Made with high quality, 100% food grade silicone beads all ONE.CHEW.THREE necklaces are safe for young children to chomp and chew to their heart’s content. They are completely free from nasties like BPA, lead, cadmium, phthalates, PVC and latex and they are mould, fungus and bacteria resistant too. The lovely wooden beads used in some of the designs are made from untreated natural beech wood that can be oiled or waxed if you wish (coconut oil, yum!).

Ted may be five months old already but my heart still skips a beat anytime I see his name somewhere, doesn’t Ted look super chuffed with his very own personalised Shapes Teether (RRP $26.95)? It turned out absolutely lovely and the different textures, shapes and angles really keep him busy.

I love that the ONE.CHEW.THREE range caters for everyone, there are lots of different designs and colours to choose from allowing you to create a piece that suits your style and personality perfectly. They make great gift ideas for new mamas and the turnaround is super quick.

Recognising the importance of a warm and wonderful teacher the My Special Teacher Necklace (RRP $50) is the perfect combination of thoughtful and delightful.

This pretty design comes ready-to-go in a signature Mad Alice Jewellery gift box, it doesn’t get easier than that.

Last year we surprised three of our teachers with some special Mad Alice Jewellery creations and they were extremely well received, the ladies were all pleasantly surprised by the original gift and the personal touch. We’ve already ordered ours for this year and the kids can’t wait to hand them out in a few weeks, they especially love the fact that the card is printed with the name of their special teacher.

Emporium D

They may only be six, four and one year old but my girls love pretty and shiny things as much as mama. When I unfolded the colourful drawing miss Juliet left in her shoe for Sinterklaas I wasn’t surprised to see a custom designed piece of jewellery; no request for Barbies, ponies or games but simply her very own piece of sparkle. I am thinking Sinterklaas is going to score really well this year as he just wrapped up a gorgeous parcel of Little Love goodness for this sweet girl:

Little Love Pearl Bracelet

From the designers of Emporium D, a stylish jewellery range of women, comes a dedicated junior line for young girls called Little Love by Emporium D. Inspired by beautiful France the collection features chic baby pearls and delightful sterling silver pieces, pretty pastel colours and enamel hearts, bows and logo charms. With prices starting at $30 Little Love by Emporium D jewellery makes the perfect gift for a special someone this Christmas.

Stackable Charm BraceletThe classic sterling silver Little Love Stackable Charm Bracelet (RRP $40) is both simple and stylish, it’s timeless and very versatile so you can wear it any day with any outfit. Wear one bracelet or stack a few together, wear one charm per bracelet or combine several charms to suit your taste, with 6 different charm bracelets to choose from there are lots of options and you can really personalise your look. You can position each charm where you want it and it will not slide along unless you unclasp it.

Ovaltween BraceletThis eye catching coral bead Ovaltween Bracelet (RRP $30) with silver plated purple charm is one of my favourites. The colour combination is divine and so summery, I love it! The exclusive Emporium D bow charm is double sided so it would look fantastic from any angle. Having an elasticised cord these cute bracelets are easy for small hands to put on and take off. The Ovaltween Bracelet is available in three different colours.

Little Love Coco BraceletAll Emporium D orders are carefully packaged in an Emporium D pouch and gift box so they are immediately ready to be presented to a lucky recipient, placed under the Christmas tree or popped in the Santa stocking.

Mad Alice Jewellery

Last winter I introduced you to Australian jewellery label Mad Alice Jewellery, the gorgeous ‘4th baby’ of Queensland mum Lorraine. Lorraine has been a busy bee this last year and added lots of new products to the range with more designs expected in the near future. To celebrate all these new Mad Alice Jewellery arrivals in style we have a lovely giveaway for you:

Olivia Pendant by Mad Alice Jewellery

Olivia Pendant by Mad Alice Jewellery

One of the top sellers is the very sweet Olivia Pendant ($39), how can it not be with such a beautiful name? As a mum to a gorgeous little Olivia I may be a little biased but I love the classic name and I think it fits this pretty little pendant very well. It’s simple, feminine and timeless, the sterling silver design goes with any outfit and it suits different ages so it can be enjoyed for years. Choose from heart, cross, star or dove.

Penelope Earring SetAnother popular style more aimed at older girls is this cute set of Penelope Interchangeable Earrings ($32). One set of sterling silver earrings, three sets of charms and you’ve got a winning package. The charms are super easy to swap and have that shiny and dangling look every young girl loves. The Penelope Set adds the finishing touch to a lovely outfit for a birthday, wedding, communion or other special celebration.

Amelia SetIf your daughter has a soft spot for pretty flowers and anything that’s pink and sparkly (there is no denying it, many girls do) you will no doubt score a lot of brownie point with this Amelia Flower Pendant and Earring Set ($80). Handmade with love by Lorraine herself using sterling silver and Swarovski crystals this eye catching set makes a very precious gift for a special little lady in your life.

Bambino Bling

Yesterday I wrote how happy and thankful I am to still be breastfeeding our 5-month old girl. Now that I seem to have won my battle with mastitis I have moved on to another challenge: distraction. With three older siblings there is always something exciting happening around us and little Sybil is way too busy checking out all the action to concentrate on breastfeeding. Getting her back ‘at the table’ turned out to be surprisingly easy thanks to Bambino Bling.

Bambino Bling StephanieBambino Bling is a stylish range of teething necklaces and bracelets for hip mums, designed with love right here in Australia. Not only does this jewellery look hip and fashionable, as it is made from soft, chewable silicone this gorgeous range is also 100% safe for your precious bundle to bite and chew on and helps soothe the sore gums of teething babies. The bright colours, smooth shapes and interesting texture are sure to appeal to little eyes and hands.

Bambino Bling BeatriceCreated with real mums and real children in mind the Bambino Bling range is designed with no detachable parts and the clever safety breakaway clasp will release if baby tugs on your necklace too hard (much safer than all the beads coming loose and possibly cause a terrible accident). The colourful beads are non toxic and BPA free, which means no nasties near your baby’s mouth.

Bambino Bling HollyThere are so many different colours and styles of Bambino Bling necklaces available it is hard to pick a favourite, you can easily wear a new colour/style for every outfit and every day of the week. Prices range from $19.95 (bracelets) up to $34.95 (necklaces) and shipping is FREE worldwide. Your new Bambino Bling necklace or bracelet will arrive beautifully packaged in a luxurious pink gift box, it’s the perfect present for a new mum or baby shower.
