Twinkle, Twinkle Little Shamballa Bracelet

Its pink, it sparkles I love it!
Regular readers of my blog will know I love jewellery especially anything sparkly.I'm a proper magpie. 
So when Cutey  sent me two of their Shamballa bracelets to review I admit I did do a little dance. 
I already had a bit of a yearning for one of these beautiful Buddhist inspired bracelets. (they have been around for a while and adorned the wrist of lots of celebrities) but the ones I had seen were quite expensive, however these by Cutey are only £18.99.That's a whole lot of pretty for under twenty quid!
The Thinker-planning what to have for my dinner probably
They arrived just before I attended the wedding of a friend of mine which was held at the fabulous Chillington Hall
Chillington Hall is a real gem of a country house, with grounds designed by Capability Brown and room upon room stuffed to the rafters with beautiful antiques, chandeliers and even a real leopard skin rug!
Whilst obviously feeling very sad for the poor old leopard I couldn't resist some pics with it (its not every day you get the chance to drape yourself with the skin of  a big cat)
Baba Bee, Mama Bee and the poor leopard-Grr
There is something about being in such grand surroundings which inspired both me and my daughter to become rather camp and as you can see by these pictures we indulged in some serious voguing.
Baba Bee as Lady of the Manor
I did feel a little bit like I had been caught with my hand in the biscuit tin when one of the staff walked in to find me draped on a chaise wearing the rug as a dress but they have obviously seen it all before and didn't miss a beat.
Grrrrr
Just hanging out with my new friend

Chomp!
Anyway back to the bracelet review,Baba Bee also fell in love with the Shamballa bracelets so we both wore them for the big day. At  one point she rather craftily took mine off my wrist while I was talking to someone and wore both of them-the magpie doesn't fly far from the tree.
Baba Bee playing Angry Birds with both the bracelets on.

To be honest mine hasn't left my wrist since. Its so sparkly and lovely and looks quite substantial and yes super twinkly.I didn't expect to love it as much as I do.I'm thinking of buying a few more to create a wrist full of them. I will be rattling like a cutlery drawer!

    3. I have to say, the bracelets are cute, but not as cute as your little Bee lol, how did you get her to keep her bow in her hair, my daughter always ditched hers after 5 minutes haha.
