I heart Chapter One (and I'm paying it forward!)

Firstly, hooray for a UK stockist of silicone teething jewellery! Is it me or do a lot of cool things on Instagram seem to either be in Canada or Australia? ...Or Norwich?

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win £20 store credit at Chapter One. I knew instantly that I wanted one of Gemma's amazing silicone necklaces that, whilst not only being stylish, can safely be gnawed at by a teething babe, or twizzled by them whilst breastfeeding or being worn in a carrier. In fact my two favourite necklaces were just £10 each and meant that I could afford two. Score! The person within me who is trying to reduce the number of belongings I own decided, however, to use half of my store credit to pay it forward and give the same necklace I'd chosen to someone on Instagram. Afterall, the very lovely Lauren of @dilan_andme sent me a kind gift in the spirit of paying it forward months ago (which included chocolate on a day I reeealllly needed it) and I'd never carried the gesture on.
The necklace is called the 'Phoebe' and is currently sold out on Gemma's site, but she'll be restocking soon. The nasties-free, food-grade silicone beads are yellow, grey, white and black - which is an excellent combo in my humble opinion - and the nylon thread can be cut and refastened to suit the length you'd prefer.
I have been wearing my necklace with pride pretty much since the day it arrived. I've even been wearing it to work and it makes me chuckle to myself that I'm wearing something, technically, for Joseph but I love it so much that I'd wear it even at times that he's not around. That being said, Joseph has twizzled and bitten it during our snuggle times and seems to approve. 
Honestly, there's a part of me that regrets sharing my store credit as I just love so many things on Gemma's site, but I hope that someone will be as happy with their necklace as I am with mine.

Therefore to be in with a chance of winning the Phoebe, all you have to do is:

  • Make sure you're following me (@onthechangingmat) and @_chapterone_ on Instagram
  • Comment 'I heart @_chapterone_' on my giveaway post on Instagram for one entry.
  • For an additional entry, repost the above image letting people know about the giveaway and tag me (@onthechangingmat) and @_chapterone_.

You'll just have to be patient and wait for the necklace to be restocked, but I promise it'll be worth the wait.

The giveaway closes at 6pm on Friday the 15th of May and the winner will be chosen by Joseph on Saturday morning. Good luck!  x
We're going on an adventure
