Blingsting, the brainchild of a 33-year-old Manhattan woman, is a petite can of pepper spray outfitted with a heart-shaped nozzle and decked out with candy-colored rhinestones. Its creator, Andrea Atteberry, says she spent four years developing the product. "I am trying to make self-protection relevant to the girls who want things to be cute," Atteberry recently told New York Magazine's website. Atteberry says she's never had to use pepper spray herself, but always carries her Blingsting clipped to her purse or her pet Yorkie's leash.
