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...

Recession – what recession

I came across what has got to be the most expensive candle I have ever seen or been up close to. I’ll wager not even the Vatican in its hey day stretched that far. Its lovely, its probably even worth the money if you have any, which I don’t! So if you are an oligarch or even an oligarch’s girlfriend, wife, consort, friend even you can put it on your Christmas list. I am reliably informed they are available at Harrods & Harvey Nicholls (would expect nothing less)! The...

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...

The sun always shines on LG…………………

I comissioned Laura Gravestock to make this beautiful sun ring for me a few weeks ago which goes with my heart and crescent moon ring amazingly well. It has been admired so many times I cannot begin to tell you, most recently from those impressively stylish gals at Fluorescent PR who I lunched with (don’t you know) at TK Maxx’s bloggers lunch at Paramount Centrepoint yesterday! It was also admired by the Editor of blog STYLERAWR – check it out its a great fashion blog. I also bumped into...

GOLD you’ve got the power to hold……

GOLD I loved the song the first time round, I love GOLD as jewellery despite the detractors and I even suspended disbelief when Gordon Brown sold off the gold reserves for about 50p years ago. We could certainly do with it now- look at all the cash for gold shops everywhere! What is she on about not I hear you ask, well all will be revealed if you bear with me for a minute. I’m off to a wedding soon and the theme is white! I thought that was...

There once was a shop called Bohemian Butterfly ………………

Once upon a time on a street in Kensington called Church St, there was a shop and not just any shop but a virtual treasure trove of beautiful handmade and unique jewellery handmade by Calvin and Alisha and the name of this shop was called Bohemian Butterfly. Oh many happy hours of mine were spent shooting the breeze with my new found friends and many beautiful pieces were bought that are still firm favourites and much admired. Then along came the evil bankers and stupid people who caused the...

Culture and Cameo

I have always been a fan of Eclectic Eccentricity’s unusual and quirky vintagey type jewellery pieces. I especially love cameos so their collaboration with the National Gallery ticks all my boxes. I love this double sided cameo available from the National Gallery shop www.nationalgallery.co.uk
