Little Tinkers Jewellery and Gifts



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).


June 2014 Favourites


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.


Kimberley Wilson Jewellery


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


Wired Together


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.

More make-up / jewellery storage




I am always on the look out for innovative ways to store make-up, beauty products and jewellery. I spotted this box in W H Smith (a stationery store) and thought it would be perfect for my up and coming move to a new city. I think it is designed for keeping stationery in, but I thought it would be perfect for nail polish and jewellery.

I plan to select a few of my favourite polishes and put them in the bottom compartment and then I will keep earrings, hair accessories, etc. in the top. As you will see I have had to be ruthless in deciding what to take!

Easter Gift Ideas

Easter is not so far away now and if, like me, you gave something up for lent, you will probably be pretty excited. Of course Easter is the time we give chocolate eggs as gifts, but it’s worth remembering that there are lots of other things you can give as gifts at Easter time. Here are some of those, along with some more unusual ways of giving chocolate.

Lush Carrot Gift Set


Lush has some really awesome Easter bath goodies, and this set contains some of my favourites. The Golden Egg especially smells absolutely heavenly.

Yankee Candle Spring Votive Set


Candles make great gifts and you can’t beat Yankee Candle for quality. Yankee Candle actually have two specific Easter scents, but I find them super sickly and unappealing. These spring floral smells are much nicer as they are really fresh and really bring spring alive in your room. Pink Hibisucs especially is a gorgeous scent, and luckily you get two of those!

Hotel Chocolat Egg and Chips


As well as their fantastic Easter eggs, Hotel Chocolat has some really unusual Easter chocolate. I love this fun egg and chips set. It has a  white chocolate and vanilla egg with a soft caramel yolk and milk chocolate, caramel-filled chips. Yum!

Creme Egg Tree


It’s a tree made of Cadbury’s Creme Eggs, what more do I need to say? This would be perfect for the Creme Egg fiend in your life. It comes in four different sizes, holding from 22 to 100 Creme Eggs!

Easter Bunny Fairy Lights


I think these bunny lights are super adorable and would really add a fun Easter touch to your bedroom or living your. I love the idea of presenting them in a bowl of hay like this (although keep an eye on them!) or you could hang them up.

Carrot Whisk


If you have a keen baker to buy for, what about this quirky carrot shaped whisk. It would make a really fun, unusual gift.

Easter Jewellery


Jewellery is a great Easter gift and I would highly recommend checking out Neat Eats on Etsy for some unusual ideas. I can vouch for them being excellent quality. Two of my favourites from the Easter collection are the birds nest eggs and the hot cross bun ring.











Majestical Jewellery Review and Giveaway

Today I am sharing my excitement in a new online jewellery company I have discovered: Majestical*. They have a wonderful mix of different items, from silver and pearl jewellery, to charms and statement necklaces. Majestical sent me this adorable little pair of Daisy Earrings to try. They are really perfect for spring and are really versatile for different outfits. They are pretty clever, as the white “petals” seem to be layered over one another for a very natural effect. As you will see from the pictures, they don’t pull on your ears too much, and they sit in a nice position. I’d have been happy to pay $12 for these.




Although a lot of Majestical’s jewellery is lovely, I think where they really come into their own is statement necklaces. The current collection is just fabulous and there are some truly gorgeous pieces. Here are a few I am lusting after. I think the first one will find it’s way into my online shopping basket pretty soon!

December 2013 Favourites

SAM_1479Welcome to 2014! I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone and how much fun it was compared to previous years. I suppose one of my highlights for 2013 would have to be discovering blogging! I’m really enjoying it and I hope you are enjoying reading what I write!

In this post, I am going to share with you some of my favourite items from the last few weeks of 2013.

Mavala Nail Polishes – I have had the Mavala nail biting detterant for a long time, but I had never thought to try their polishes before. In fact, I didn’t even know you could buy them in the UK! Towards the beginning of December I was searching the Internet looking for the perfect green nail polish when I stumbled across Mavala Peacock Green. I bought it, tried it, and adored it. I then got two more in my advent calendar: London and Pure Diamond. These polishes last and last without chipping and their opacity is great.

Floral rings – I spotted these little flower rings in Accessorize a couple of days ago and picked them up for £6 each. I always wear the same ring on my ring finger, so I decided to buy them a little bigger so I can wear them on my index fingers or my thumbs. I think they are adorable!

Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner – I am pretty new to lip liner. I’ve always stuck to nude shades in the past so I’ve never understood the necessity. This winter I have been getting more and more into darker lipsticks like red or wine, but struggled with the lipsticks bleeding and not looking very polished. I read online that you could use a nude lip liner if you don’t have the correct shade, so I dug this one out again. It makes all the difference; my lips look really professional and polished.

L’Oreal True Match Blush in True Rose – This is my go to blush at the moment because it lasts really well and it makes my skin look really fresh and glowing. I have linked my full review below.

Bourjois Smoky Eyes Trio in Rose Vintage – This month my obsession with rose gold shades has led me to put my trusty MUA Undressed and Heaven and Earth palettes to one side (save for the brown shadow for my brows) in favour of this gorgeous little trio. This creates the perfect subtle smoked eye for daytime wear. Again, my review of this product is linked below.

Yankee Candle Christmas Eve  – Finally, a real Christmas treat. I bought this for my best friend for Christmas and it smelt so good I decided I had to have one too. According to Yankee Candle, the fragrance is “Traditional Christmas scents of a warm hearth, sugared plums, and candied fruits”. It’s perfect for anyone who wants a warm winter fragrance but doesn’t like spicy or cinnamonny scents.

Neat Eats Jewellery

I have been wanting to share this post with you for so long now, but I have had to wait because it concerns Christmas presents for other people. A few months ago I discovered an Etsy store called Neat Eats. The seller, Rhonda, makes the most incredible novelty jewellery. It is all so intricate and perfectly made. I fell in love! I should stress that this post is in no way sponsored and I stumbled upon Neat Eats entirely by accident. The free gifts I mentioned below had nothing to do with the fact I have a blog.

In my first order I bought myself these gorgeous Jammie Dodger earrings and I bought my friend this Drink Me bottle necklace. I was so pleased with them because they are excellent quality. I was even sent another pair of earrings as a gift (in the middle below).





I then placed another order about a week later and bought this gorgeous necklace full of gingerbread men for a Secret Santa gift. I was sent another pair of free earrings (on the right below). I also bought some English Breakfast cufflinks for my brother. You can see those here.
