Le Petit Bola Pregnancy Necklaces

Finding a unique gift for a pregnant friend or family member can be a challenge. Should you buy a gift for the baby or perhaps something for the expectant mum? I usually opt for a gift for mum because the majority of people tend to buy gifts for the baby. Le Petit Bola is a French Jewellery brand that started two years ago in 2016. They imagine and create Harmony Ball necklaces specifically for pregnant women. Starting on the living room table of their apartment in Valence, France, Emilie and Florian discovered the harmony ball. This unique Indonesian jewel is… [Read More]

Review: Personalised Watch & Notebook from Happiness Is A Gift #ADGIFTED

I have a confession to make. When it comes to stationary I’m a bit of a hoarder. I have an ever growing collection of beautiful notebooks that sit on my bedroom dressing table. I absolutely adore them. Just looking at them makes me smile! There’s just something so satisfying about the feel and look of an unused notebook. It’s a blank canvas that’s just inviting you to start something amazing. Perhaps a love letter, poem or a best selling novel! Happiness is a Gift recently sent me an exquisite, personalised, natural tan leather notebook. It arrived beautifully presented in a… [Read More]

Millennials Spend Less Money on Jewellery Now Compared to Two Decades Ago

How much money would you or do you spend on jewellery? Although I own a fair amount of jewellery, I don’t spend an awful lot of money on it. I also don’t buy jewellery on a regular basis, and it appears that I’m not alone in this. According to industry analysts Millennials simply don’t see the value in spending their money on valuables. According to Sarah Berger of TheCashlorette.com, “Millennials gravitate toward spending money on experiences, and not things.” Like myself, todays younger generation are far more likely to spend significant money on travelling to places such as Thailand and… [Read More]

Cutie Stix Cut & Create Station Review: Video Special

Cutie Stix Cut & Create Station is a toy like no other I’ve come across before. Aimed at children over six years old, this product lets children make their own bracelets, necklaces, nail art and figures. Unlike other jewellery making toys available on the market, the difference with Cutie Stix is that children actually get to make the ‘beads’ themselves. This proved to be hours of fun for our five year old twins. Cutie Stix Cut & Create Station costs just £29.99 and is available to buy online here. Cutie Stix are the perfect way for children to make accessories… [Read More]

JORD Wooden Watch Review and Giveaway

JORD Wooden Watch

Over the last few years I’ve become used to wearing a fitness tracker instead of a watch. I have to be honest though, although my fitness tracker tells me the time it isn’t exactly fashionable! When JORD Watches contacted me a little while ago and asked if I’d like to review one of their watches, I was pretty keen! I chose to review the Frankie 35 watch in Zebrawood and Champagne. Available for $179 USD, which is around £141, this watch is definitely fashionable! For starters it comes in a beautiful wooden box which is great for storing your watch… [Read More]

Make your own Jewellery Box Craft Activity

It was a cold, rainy day and our twins and I had spent the majority of the afternoon indoors making jewellery. I was sent a make your own jewellery kit to review and then my dad also bought one for the girls which reignited their interest in it!  We made necklaces with their names on and bracelets with colourful beads of all shapes and sizes. It seemed a shame that our girls didn’t have their own jewellery boxes to keep them in though.  Then I had the idea to make our own.  I raided our cupboards for things that we… [Read More]

Kaya Jewellery Review

I absolutely adore personalised jewellery so when I was asked to review a piece of jewellery from Kaya Jewellery I knew what I had in mind.  Kaya Jewellery was started by Tanja, who is a mum of two daughters. Tanja says that her daughters have a soft spot for everything that shines and twinkles. This means that her jewellery box gets raided on a daily basis because her children want to look just like mum! That’s something I can certainly relate too! My twin girls, R and M, love going through my jewellery box. I wear a necklace every day, along… [Read More]

My Jewellery Wishlist: Accessorise your outfits!

Jewellery can be a quick and easy way to make any outfit look fabulous! When I go out with my friends I like to add some statement pieces to my outfit to make it look a bit more on trend, but also to make me feel good. There are lots of other ways that you can accessorise an outfit too. A good pair of kitten heels, a nice scarf, maybe even a brooch or a nice hair piece. I tend to go for jewellery though because it’s quick, simple and very efficient. Here are some of my favourite pieces. 1…. [Read More]
