I was shopping in the Grand Arcade in Cambridge recently and I spotted a little stall full of enticing looking things.
Little Tinkers sells all sorts of handmade and hand painted floral jewellery and the most adorable little sculpted animal necklaces and charms.
I picked out some rose earrings, a silver rose necklace, and an elephant charm for my bag. I may or may not have also bought some other items as gifts for people!
As well as having really lovely items, Little Tinkers also offers that little bit something extra in the way of service. The items were all packed into little decorated bags, and then put into one paper bag with a little chocolate inside. It made me feel really special and valued as a customer.
If you want to find out more about Little Tinkers you can visit them on Facebook: Little Tinkers (Gifts).
Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers – These lip lacquers are pretty fantastic, as I think you will probably have heard from other bloggers and vloggers. They are super pigmented, come in a gorgeous range of colours, look really shiny and glossy, and last really well!
Yankee Candle Black Plum Blossom – This smells so delicious – a gorgeous hybrid between floral and fruity. Also, have I mentioned I love Yankee Candle? I have been burning this candle for ages and still it’s going!
Body Shop Coconut Body Butter – My fiancé got me this body butter for Christmas and I have been loving using it during the hot weather to add some much needed moisture back into my skin. Coconut is probably not a scent I would immediately pick and I really don’t know why, because this smells delicious!
Trek Protein Flapjacks – I have been totally obsessed with these recently. They are way better for you than standard flapjacks because they have slightly lower sugar, no horrible E numbers, and around 10g of protein per bar. They come in loads of different flavours. I think my favourites are Cocoa and Cocoa Coconut.
Whittards Very Very Berry Tea – I spotted this about a month ago and held out for a bit, but eventually caved and bought it. It looks fantastic and good for you, it smells totally delicious (hints of vanilla), and tastes incredible – so fruity!
Accessorize Earrings – I think these might have featured in a favourites post before. They are a cute pair of Accessorize earrings which one of my closest friends got me for my birthday this year. They are so cute and Summery.
An email dropped into my inbox recently from a lovely lady called Kimberley Wilson. She has been making jewellery as a hobby for years and recently started selling it on Etsy. I had a quick look and instantly loved loads of her pieces, so she sent me some to try.
I picked this gorgeous purple beaded bracelet with silver butterfly charm, and these adorable little key shaped earrings*. They arrived in a cute little purple bag and within a day or two of Kimberley posting them. The jewellery is good quality and looks great on, I am really pleased with it! I honestly think it is excellent value for money too. The earrings would have been £1.50 which is crazy cheap considering you could get similar items from high street stores for three times that.
Kimberly has lots of lovely items on her Etsy store. Here are some of my favourites:
Pink Charm Bracelet
Sterling Silver Butterfly Necklace
Hot Pink Bag Charm
Bumble Bee Earrings
I really suggest you go and check out Kimberley’s store. You can also read more about her on her new blog.
*These items were sent to me to try, but all the opinions given are my own honest thoughts.
