It Don't Mean a Thing If You Ain't Got That Bling {GIVEAWAY & DISCOUNT}

Want to know how I'm sure Gabrielle and Alaina are girly girls?  They are obsessed with jewelry.  Even as a newborn, Gaby always grabbed for anything with bling, and for the past six months, Alaina has managed to transform everything from bath toys to hair elastics into makeshift bracelets.  They're not even two yet but they know they like their jewels.  Guess they take after their mama!

So for their second birthday, I went on a hunt for age-appropriate pieces that they could wear to their party and came across Sweet Baby Girl, a children's jewelry boutique.  Bingo!  This adorable store carries everything from birthstone earrings:


To nameplate necklaces:


All sized for little ladies. 

Since Gabrielle and Alaina don't have pierced ears yet and I worried that they might strangle each other wearing necklaces, I decided bracelets were the way to go.  Sweet Baby Girl has so many cute options to choose from!  I love the timeless silver bangle.


And the birthstone bracelets seemed fitting since I was looking for something for the girls to wear for their birthday.


But what really grabbed my eye were the Freshwater Pearl designs.  Shannon from Sweet Baby Girl was so generous to send me two with heart charms for Gabrielle and Alaina, and when they arrived, I was overwhelmed by the cuteness.


Aren't they darling?  They fit the girls' wrists perfectly and they loved wearing them (pardon the lack of photos but trying to get two almost-two-year-olds to stay still and show off their bracelets is no simple task!).  I was super impressed by how well-made they are - even after my duo tugged at them, they were no worse for the wear - and I love the idea that Gabrielle and Alaina will be able to wear them for special occasions for the next few years and then I'll pack them away as keepsakes.  Maybe the girls will use them as their something old when they get married or pass them down to their own daughters someday.

Sweet Baby Girl has so many wonderful designs that will work for any occasion for your little one.  The cross necklaces and bracelets would make wonderful baptism or first communion gifts.


And their charms are perfect for a present you can keep on giving.  You can choose either a necklace or bracelet as a base and add to it over the years.  I like this bracelet with an initial as a starting point.


Sweet Baby Girl has charms that just right for every big event in a child's life. How sweet is this Big Sis charm for a little girl who's about to get a new sibling?


Worried that your child might break or lose jewelry?  Yeah, I was too, which is why I appreciate that the prices at Sweet Baby Girl are so reasonable. 

I can't wait to dress Gabrielle and Alaina up for their birthday party and put on their new pearl bracelets.  I know they'll be showing them off to all of their guests.  In my book, it's never too early for a little bling!
