Belly Charms Review and Giveaway!

Have you ever heard of Belly Charms? If you haven't, then listen up! Sonya, the lovely lady behind Belly Charms started this business wanting to make belly button rings that would work for pregnant moms! Ok, so I know not everyone has their belly button pierced and it is a personal choice, but I have mine pierced and it was horrible to deal with during each of my pregnancies. I took it out at about 5 months both times and prayed it wouldn't close up. Even though it didn't close up during my pregnancies, it would have been adorable to have had a little bit of bling in there during my 9 months! Anything to distract from all those stretch marks! I know when I have my next little one, I will be turning to Belly Charms. They make their belly button barbells really long and they can be cut to size since they are made out of flexible Teflon. Because they are flexible and not a hard plastic or metal, they are ideal for use during pregnancy! I also love that you can buy little charms to put on the barbell to make it prettier!



Okay, so now that I have chatted up the maternity belly button rings, lets talk about everything else! It doesn't stop at belly rings, my friends. They make a wide variety of jewelry for moms! They also make kids safety ID bracelets and other ID items to keep the whole family safe!

Here is a peek at some of the different jewelry offered at the online store:
Swarovski Pearl and Antique Silver Mother's Bracelet
Personalized mother's bracelets and anklets! Aren't they gorgeous?

I personally got to review one of her newest items, a pendant necklace! My pendant necklace proudly says "Mommy to Two". Isn't that adorable? You can get them in a classic shape, or a heart shape. I opted for classic. Here is a glimpse of what I got in the mail! I also want to say it was packaged so cute!


Sorry, I know I am not a professional photographer! Isn't the charm just beautiful though? You can get any number of children you have put on it up to 10! I couldn't be happier with the quality of this item and the obvious care that she puts into her work. You can really tell she loves her business and takes the time to put a little extra effort into the packages she sends out. My necklace came enclosed in a little blue pouch, which I thought was a great added touch!

I haven't yet worn this necklace out, but I know when I do, I will be plenty of compliments! I will definitely be posting an update when that happens! I do think it is so sweet for me, that even when my little ones aren't with me, this necklace is close to my heart and it makes me happy that I have a little reminder of them with me all the time! I feel proud to wear this necklace!

I cant say enough about her customer service as well. Talking to her, you know she cares about her customers and her business and that makes he happier to shop there! You will be well taken care of by this amazing seller.

  7. I'd love a "Mom to 4" necklace.

    I didn't know that they made belly button rings for use during pregnancy, nor that some rings could be cut to size and rethreaded. I have no experience in that area.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. I absolutely love the peace sign earrings and the Mommy to 1 necklace (Though I'd love it to say Mommy to Alexis, but hey, it is a beautiful pendant to begin with)

    Also, I knew that there were pregnancy belly rings but didn't know that they could be cut down and rethreaded. I have body piercings (other than my ears, I have my nose and my lip) but I would like to get my belly pierced one day after I lose some of this weight.

    Anyways, I hope I win! I don't have a single piece of "mom" jewelry. And also, I am a follower!!
