Almost a year ago I was first introduced to Lorene the owner and creator behind Glitter & Spice. The first item we ever had in our collection of teethers from Glitter & Spice was a teal and white own teether. Since then multiple items have been added to the list of what we own from Glitter & Spice. You are sure to find something that is just right.
With the arrival of her second child, a need for stylish teething necklaces became apparent. This is what inspired Lorene to start creating necklaces she loved for the modern mama that are safe for baby to chew on and fashionable for mom to wear.
Addie started teething around 3 months but teeth did not pop through for months! Now she is 1 and has her two bottom teeth and only just recently have more teeth started to pop through. Poor girl is teething harsh again but thankfully we have lots of items in our house to help her through.
Some of Addie’s favourites include the owl teether that started it all. An ice cream bar teether that she fell in love with this summer. It has texture on both sides thanks to the multicoloured sprinkles and is perfect to gnaw on when her teeth and gums have been irritating her.
The all time favourite though when it comes to teethers, is her vanilla cookie teether. Glitter & Spice had the classic Oreo style teether, but I put in a request for Lorene to bring in a vanilla version. Call me crazy, but I only eat the vanilla ones for fear of cookie showing up in my teeth after. Plus I find the vanilla version perfectly girly.There are several options for colour combinations for the clip that attaches to the teether.
A few months ago Addie became a bit of a soother baby. We were constantly misplacing her soothers. Plus it didn’t help that she has this habbit of just dropping things when she decides she is done with them. Who knows how many have been lost on walks or when we go shopping. The soother clips have been so helpful. They are simple to attach to the soother but have a breakaway clasp in case your child pulls on them, this helps prevent them from getting tangled in the stand. Addie loves that she can have her soother or chew on the beads that are part of the soother clip.
There are several options for colour combinations for the clip that attaches to the teethers or soother clips. Or if you just want the teether, you can order it without a clip. Personally, I love having the clip because it has saved me from the game of throwing items overboard when in the stroller or car seat and having to rescue them.
Most recently for our trip to Disneyland we brought some special items with us from Glitter & Spice. Lorene made some custom pieces for myself and the girls. Each of the girls dressed up as a different princess for the Halloween party we attended and they both had a custom made necklace to match their outfit. I so please with their necklaces because they tied in all of the colours that were in the outfit. I wouldn’t have thought to use two shades of blue to match the Snow White outfit! Lorene’s attention to detail really stands out in moments like this. I had simply provided her with photos of their dresses and she took the creating from there.
Each time we went to take photos with different characters they pointed out the necklaces the girls and I were wearing. Evie was so happy that each princess paid attention to her special necklace and took the time to her ask her about it. We even had parents and cast members stop when we were walking through Disneyland so that they could ask where the necklaces were from.
