I suppose there comes a time in every mother's life that she realizes her daughter is no longer a "baby" but a real, bonafide, growing-up little girl. So scary to let go of those cuddles, diapers, and onesies - instead replaced with tutus, fancy shoes and....jewelry. Not sure if this is happening to us sooner than average (Lil'Miss is only 3.5yrs old!) but I can't hold it back anymore, the pink, dressing up beast must be fed - eco-consciously of course!
My good friend Chantale tweeted about a new online store that fulfills both the craving of my daughter (something "fancy" like mamas, please!) and me (nothing plastic or tacky FYI!): Fournier answered my prayers! Fournier has a gorgeous array of natural, eco-friendly necklaces for girls, but it's just as important to note how the items are made: by a poverty alleviation project in Bolivia that creates a high-quality product that empowers the artisans who make them. Love, love, love some more. Feel good feelings all around encompassed in some beautiful trinkets that will make your little one smile - while you're at it though, why not treat yourself to one of the women's necklaces - it is Mother's Day soon after all!
