Where I realise JUST how lucky I am……..

I am a very lucky person. Look what my friend Veronique sent me for Christmas! A fantastic medieval cross on Biba chain (featured on the front of this post) and medieval bangles (below) from Mirabelle jewellery! I feel like Maid Marion but far more stylish, now where is that Robin Hood hiding! For those of you not in the know, I also write Mirabelle’s blog for the Mirabelle Jewellery website. Mirabelle is a fantastic ethical jewellery website, much loved by the fashion pack and those in the know. Mirabelle...


A little something for the girls who have nothing

An Angel at my Table I love mooching around in a fantasy of froth and frenchness this website ‘An Angel at my Table’. It sells a random selection of homewares, jewellery and knick knacks and its just lovely. I love these bracelets as they remind me of old Parisien seamstresses toiling away producing perfect couture that none of us can afford to wear. So wear these instead.


Me and Zena and Mare St Hackney

Me and Zena As a writer I love the tools of my craft, and the tools are unsurprisingly, pens, paper, pencil sharpeners and of course the computer. So I loved coming across these fabulous bracelets shaped like a pencil (featured pic) and the anchor necklaces (below). I also loved their signature necklaces shaped like a robot (a nod to the computer). Chatting to Emily who does the marketing for MeandZena jewellery, I was delighted to discover that MeandZena (owned by Zena McKeown) operate out of Mare St Studios in...


Guess Vogue Fashion’s Night Out

Electric Ladybird and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the Guess Fashion’s Night Out party at their flagship store in London’s Regent St. It would have been rude not to avail of the copious amounts of champagne and cupcakes fashioned with a very cute Guess logo no less and even ruder still not to purchase one of these really cute bracelets which reminded me of my Acid House party days years before many of you were even thought of I’ll wager. All proceeds from the sale of the bracelets and...


GUESS parties with Vogue Fashion’s Night Out!

I do love an occasion.  8th September 2011 marks the GUESS Vogue Fashion’s Night Out. The event, described as an ‘after-hours shopping extravaganza’ is in the diary of any fashionista worth her weight in luxe. I will be heading to GUESS on London’s Regent Street (their flagshop store), who have two  fabulous new offerings, raising money for the Kids Company charity which provides emotional, practical and educational support to children and young people. The first (1) is a printed tee featuring the beautiful Drew Barrymore in the brand’s 1987 ad campaign....


Kumihimo, darling! Bracelets by Tanya Walker

The  braid: whether Heidi or Grecian Goddess, such style exudes a straight-laced cheekiness that traverses from infancy to beyond. While out shopping in my local florist, I happened upon these delightful specimens by designer and creator Tanya Walker. Tanya’s inspiration for these intricate bracelets initially sourced from research into plaiting techniques for her floristry qualification, when she discoverd Kumihimo. This ancient Japanese technique was originally used by samurai to decorate armour and in is a form of finger-loop braiding. Tanya’s background in floristry provides her designs with an artistic fluidity, capturing colour and...
