For centuries, mothers in India, Thailand and Cambodia have used beautiful bell-adorned anklets to ward off bad spirits and keep track of young children. Alerted to the movements of their babies by the jingling bells, parents could constantly hear their wandering tots. These anklets are the original baby-tracking device! The Giggle Guide™ sounds off on two bell-brands, Bumble Bells and Baby Emi, that have been inspired by the fashion and the function of this age-old tradition.

What’s even better than a hoppin’ holiday party? You being glam in that hoppin’ holiday party, of course! And don’t give me any old excuse that it’s just with some of your closest friends anyway or a bunch of relatives. Unacceptable!
