Why I'm a Crown and Glory Mummy!

If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram & Facebook you'll have seen plenty of photos of me with sparkly bows in my hair and pretty floral headbands. These are all from Crown and Glory a UK based independent online store run by a lady called Sophie King...

I've followed Crown and Glory for a long while after finding out about the online store from Kat Williams of Rock N Roll Bride who in turn I found out about when I got married... yeah we wanted to be a little different....

Anyway back to why I'm a Crown And Glory Mummy...

Early in 2014, I found out that I was pregnant after being told not so long beforehand that I might never get pregnant because I have PCOS. 
I totally remember the moment that the pregnancy test turned positive. Chris and I stood there staring at it for a few moments and then started to go through a whole array of emotions before hugging each other so tight and smiling our heads off.

As we started counting down to the birth of our little boy we started to get organised and by that I mean we spent most of our days either online buying Baby things or shopping in Baby Shop for everything. Believe me, it's very easy to spend all your money on baby stuff it's just so cute! 
However, I decided that there and then I wanted to invest in something that would make me feel good coz I knew that as I got heavier and heavier I'd feel maybe a little less vibrant and of course, in the first few months of motherhood with the lack of sleep I figured that I may feel a little less sparkly than normal. 
So this was when I decided to invest in the Crown and Glory Glitterati Box Subscription. Here's the deal... you subscribe to the box subscription service on Crown and Glory's website and then each month you get sent a selection of gorgeous Crown and Glory goodies in a little brown box sealed with sparkly tape.

Subscribing to the Glitterati Box subscription by Crown and Glory has really helped keep me feeling sparkly and bright even on the mornings where I've felt half awake and been reaching for an extra-large latte as a new mum. There really is something about putting on that sparkly headband or clipping into your hair a little flower or bow, it always puts a smile on my face and brightens up my day. 
This is why I'm a Crown and Glory Mummy and I'm so happy that I am.
