I certainly would never call myself a ‘Beauty and Fashion’ Blogger ….although those of you who staunchly sat through 100 days of photos of the back of my flipping head during the ‘100 Pleats in 100 Days Challenge‘ would possibly beg to disagree.
But I think that, in future, I may occasionally venture into that hallowed area. Oh, don’t worry ….I shall endeavour to keep my ‘girlie‘ chat to a minimum …. I will definitely NOT be rivaling the ‘Life-style‘ blog posts of ZOELLA ! But, if I discover a new beauty product or fashion store …… or even an old one that is new to ME ……or perhaps receive excellent service from a company……I will spread the good news and tell you all about it.
So, with that in mind, let me tell you about Stone Bridge Hair Accessories
You will remember ….oh, how could you possibly forget …that I took part in a challenge to post a photo of my hair ….in a French pleat, chignon or bun ….. every day for 100 days ? Well, The challenge was set by the lovely ladies at Stone Bridge and those of us who actually managed to successfully get to the end of this challenging challenge were promised a prize ! A ‘Well Done‘ gift to mark our achievement !
And, why not ….. it was bloody hard and we DID IT !!
But, Melissa and Claire, the Stone Bridge ladies, are the most lovely, generous people you could hope to meet and so they encouraged us all the way. They wanted us to succeed even more than we did and actually sent a ‘Halfway‘ package to all who reached day 50 ! This package contained some gorgeous Hair-Sticks and Pins and we couldn’t believe how lucky we were.
However, nothing had prepared me for the wonderful parcel I received a few days ago …..my prize for completing my 100 Twitter and Blog Posts……
It was a veritable ‘Treasure trove’ of goodies ….an abundance of beautiful hair accessories ….a cornucopia of perfectly packaged, high-quality clips, slides and hair-bands. I was totally overwhelmed at the kindness and generosity of the people at Stone Bridge. Thank you so much Melissa and Claire !
Now ….if you are unfamiliar with the company….let me give you some background………..
Stone Bridge is a small company, run by just two women …..Melissa and Claire ….who are dedicated to offering only the very best quality hair accessories to their customers……. hand-made items, imported from France. Beautifully finished and designed to both look beautiful and hold your hair perfectly. And, as if that wasn’t enough, Melissa and Claire offer an unrivaled customer service that goes beyond simple care. They really want you to adore your purchase …. they ensure it is exactly the right item for your type of hair …..be it long, short,thick, wispy, curly or straight.
I guess you could say that some of the clips etc are a little expensive …..but weigh that against a cheaper clip that breaks after a couple of weeks and you will see that the saying “You get what you pay for ….” is very true. These clips and pins; barrettes and slides, will last YEARS !
So, please do browse their website if you are looking for something fabulous …….
And, back to my wonderful parcel, what did it contain ? ….. Well, I shall pick out an item from time to time and try to give you a taste of the ‘STONE BRIDGE’ experience ……..
Here is the first one ……
This is the Fat Capitaine Handmade French Large Claw in Sorbet:Blue Raspberry ……………….. It is ultra strong and holds ALL of my hair ALL day ………
Disclaimer: Melissa and Claire of Stone Bridge have not asked me to post anything about my parcel or any of the items I received ….I am posting this purely as my own decision, because I believe in this company and their ethics. And I also believe in the products.
