Dragon Fly Belly Bar

Monday, June 18th, 2007

Dragon Fly Belly BarBelly bars can be really dainty and discrete but they can also be loud and adventurous. I just saw this design on the River Island website and although there’s quite a lot going on, I imagine it looks really nice in, especially with a short turquoise top to match the colour of the wings.

It is called a dragon fly belly bar but I can’t work out how it looks like a dragon fly, I think it looks more like a pair of cherries on a stalk!

The bar costs just £5.99 and is available on the River Island website.

Sekonda Seksy Blue Dial Watch

Monday, June 18th, 2007

Sekonda Seksy WatchI am a big fan of Katie and Peter the next chapter and every time I watch their documentary I see the adverts for Seksy by Sekonda. I kept meaning to go on their website to see what they offer but always forgot until now! I have just been browsing their watches and I really like the styles and colours they offer. This blue dial steel link watch is one of my personal favourites; it has a stainless steel bracelet with Mother of Pearl blue shimmer dial and a line of clear diamantes to the side of the face.

The watch costs £49.92 on and is delivered gift wrapped in a pink crocodile grain box. An ideal present for that someone special!

Hultquist I Love You Jewellery

I found this gorgeous Hultquist collection at Treasure Box and just had to show it to you. My favourite piece is the bag charm, it is an antique silver heart and horn drop bag charm that can be attached easily using the silver clip.

The heart drop earrings have a flower stud and marcasite crystals, the earring match the bag charm and both items have the words I love you engraved in the silver.

The bag charm is £22.25 and the earrings £19.75, both available at

Tiffany & Co. Heart Necklace

Tuesday, June 12th, 2007

Tiffany Heart NecklaceWhenever I think of Tiffany jewellery I picture the chunky bracelets and necklaces that people often associate with the brand, however they actually make some really dainty items as well. I saw this beautiful heart pendant necklace on their website and fell in love with the design straight away. The chain and heart shape are made from sterling silver with one round diamond set at the bottom of the heart where the ends meet.

Tiffany Gift BoxThe necklace is made by Paloma Picasso and costs £270. It is available on the Tiffany & Co. website so if there’s somebody that you really want to spoil, this could be the ideal gift. I also saw the Tiffany gift boxes and they are so cute. I almost want to buy something just to see how it comes wrapped! There is also a ring and set of earrings in the design to match.

Visit the Tiffany & Co. Website for more information about this stunning necklace and for other products.

Diva Daisy Earrings

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

Daisy EarringsHow cute and summery are these little earrings? I can just imagine wearing them along the beach or by the pool or pretty much anywhere. They’d go great with an up-do so you can show them off properly and maybe even a head band in a colour to match.

They are made from wire and each daisy type flower has a coloured stone in the centre in pink, blue or yellow.

The earrings only cost £6 and are part of the Diva range from Miss Selfridge, you can purchase them online at their website.

Millacreli Heart Shaped Rings

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

Millacreli Pink RingThis is the first time I have come across Millacreli and I think the designs are extremely unique and wonderfully bizarre. This pretty pink sterling silver ring hand made in Murano, Venice caught my eye and although I don’t think I’d wear it myself I can definitely think of a few friends that would appreciate this piece of jewellery.

Millacreli Multi Coloured RingI also spotted this similar multi coloured heart shaped ring that was also hand made from sterling silver in Venice. I think I prefer the pink version but can again imagine people wearing this. Both rings are a mixture of tiny coloured mosaic glass flowers that really make them unique to anything else I’ve seen. They are available at Treasure Box for £22.

Michael Kors Wood And Stud Strap Watch

Monday, June 4th, 2007

Michael Kors WatchI really like unusual watches and it’s not often that one catches my attention so quickly but this one by Michael Kors did just that. It is so unique and beautifully designed – the strap is made from wood and is decorated with diamanté studs, the watch face is encased in a wooden frame with a gold rim surrounding the face. The hands are also gold and the face has a simplistic appearance so it is easy to look at. Only the numbers 3, 6, 9 and 12 are displayed.

If you purchase the watch from ASOS it will be delivered in a gorgeous light wooden box with the designer’s name (Michael Kors) engraved on the lid and white stitching to finish off the design. The watch will cost you £129 and would make a great gift for that special someone.
