Twinkle Twinkle Like A Star With Mont Bleu’s Bling – Review and Giveaway

Singing to myself (to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star)

(a song by Mariah Lockwood, dedicated to Mont Bleu)

“Twinkle Twinkle like a Star, with Mont Bleu, There You Are. Twinkle like the Stars Above, with this Bling you’ll fall in Love!” “Twinkle Twinkle like a Star….”

The Monte Bleu Logo - "Crystalized with Swarovski elements"

One day, as I contemplated my needing to give myself another manicure,  I just happened to think of my lovely Mont Bleu Nail File. I decided to write Mont Bleu to see if they wanted another review and giveaway on the blog and as I went to my email to write them, I discovered that they happened to have been trying to contact me! I was so very thrilled that they too thought of me… talk about being on the same wave length at the same time from way over here in Colorado USA to The Czech Republic, how cool is that?

Some of you will remember my Mont Bleu Nail File Review and Giveaway from about a year ago. My beautiful glass nail file is holding on strong and still working like a charm for me. Below is a picture of my glass nail file as a reminder of these beauties.

I received a marvelous package in my mail one day, with matching SWAROVSKI® Crystals in them. I received a bobby pin, a ring and earrings. They are so very lovely and once again the wonderful people at Monte Bleu didn’t fail to show their wonderful quality and craftsmanship in their products. I love my jewelry set.

What a FUN Ring!

two red swarovski crystal ring, adjustable to your sizeThe Ring that I received is perfectly adjustable, with 2 SWAROVSKI® Crystals on either end of the metal ring. I would say that the ring size as is was about a size 6 or 6 ½ in US ring sizing (hard to say, since I failed to measure it before adjusting it down a little to fit my size 5 ¼ finger). The size of the ring can be adjusted down or up to your needs. The metal is good and strong so you will have to put a bit of elbow grease into sizing it, but it’s a good sign of the longevity of this Ring.

Getting The Hair All Blinged Out!

hair clip (bobbypin aka hairpin) with 2 red Swarovski CrystalsThe Hairpin or Hair Clip (or Bobby Pin, as we call them here in the US) with 2 SWAROVSKI® Crystals is just breathtaking. I admitted to the representative that I almost cried when I saw their newest offerings of these gorgeous bobby-pins. Why? My Grandmother had once come to visit us along with her she brought a hairpiece that was on a maniquin head, on the hairpiece was a simple little clear crystal bobby pin and the pictures reminded me of something I hadn’t thought about in ages. God rest my sweet Grandmother’s Soul, when I admired her bobby pin she promptly gave it to this wide eyed little girl and I was in heaven! I don’t know whatever happened to this little prize, knowing how careless I was at about 7 years old, I probably lost it as little girls do.

The Bobby-pin is a great way to hold your hair back out of your eyes and to add an accent to any hairstyle on any occasion. I can see this worn for fun with a pair of jeans or to add an adornment to your hair with a fancy dress. You can wear it tucked in a bun, I seem to remember wearing the one my Grandmother gave me in my hair in ballet class. Or as an addition to a lovely French Twist or as a fun addition to the side of your hair, in a pony tail. Do you have shorter hair? Then just find a fun place to put it in your hair, cannot fail. There aren’t any rules friends, just have fun and place it where you want it in your hair and you couldn’t go wrong with this beauty. The only part missing in these Bobby Pins, is that there is not plastic to the very ends of these so be cautious when placing them in the hair so you don’t scratch your scalp.

Bling Up Those Lobes without Irritation!

These are just lovely and smaller in size then the SWAROVSKI® Crystals in the other pieces of jewelry, don’t let the smaller size of these crystals deter you from loving them, they certainly haven’t deter me from loving these! The size is excellent for any age and any occasion, I think that the size of these crystals are just perfect, if they had been as large as on the ring or in the bobby pin I think you take the chance of making it look cheap or limit yourself with wearing these.

The earrings are covered with Hypo-allergenic Rhodium, so no itching and swelling with my sensitive ears and I can get away with wearing these just as long a period of time as I can with gold posts! Yay! The posts are made well, not too long a post in back so that they stab your head behind your ear and they don’t have any sharp edges to irritate either.

In Conclusion:
