Our Story

My mom and I like sparkly things, and our world somewhat revolves around anything that can be exclusively classified as 'super cute'. My dad has been bringing home pepper spray key chains that he bought at his carwash for years. It was a nice thought and a good idea, but they never saw the light of day on our key chains because they were so unattractive. A few Christmases ago my mom bought me a pink bedazzled tape dispenser and stapler, right around the time my dad brought home another pair of ugly pepper sprays. We realized that if pepper spray were sparkly and cute, it would actually get used. And, if it were covered in crystals and could clip on to our bags, that would be even better. That night, my dad came up with the name, blingsting. At that point, there was just no turning back. So, I put everything in motion with the help of a good friend, and four years later, here we are.  

My hope is that by carrying a blingsting, you or the special girls in your life start to look at personal safety in a new way.  No more walking home alone late at night.  No more jogging in the dark, or parking the car in a dimly-lit, isolated area.  Making good decisions and being accountable for our whereabouts comes first, blingsting comes second.  

We hope you enjoy carrying your blingsting as much as we enjoyed creating it!
