The Lifestyle Blogger UK

I’ve followed The Lifestyle Blogger UK for a little while now and I absolutely love the range of articles on her website. She includes so many useful articles from the latest list of Blogger Hashtag Hours (which are amazing for scheduling Twitter chats into my diary!) and the most delicious recipes including a Salted Caramel Brownie recipe (Yum!!)

So imagine my delight when I found out The Lifestyle Blogger UK also has her own gorgeous fashion boutique! The Lifestyle Blogger UK asked me to choose a product to review either a necklace or bracelet and as I favour one particular necklace at the moment I opted for a bracelet. At this point I had no idea what the bracelet would look like and it was quite nice to know there was a surprise coming in the post for me!

The bracelet arrived so promptly and safely wrapped so as to not get damaged in the post. It was wrapped in a gorgeous little packet with a “The Lifestyle Boutique” label attached. Inside was a pretty little organza bag (and as a quick top tip – don’t throw these away! They are perfect for using to carry earrings or other delicate jewellery on holiday in your suitcase!) This bag held a lovely gold and tan coloured bracelet.

I always find bracelets quite fiddly to put on. After all usually you need two hands to put them on, resulting on some sort of bizarre finger yoga movements in an effort to get the most delicate of bracelet on your wrist. This one however, was so easy and effortless. Due to the sturdy nature of the material of this bracelet it was able to keep its shape when sliding onto my wrist. After entwining the clasp together it clasped together with ease using a magnetic clasp.

This bracelet is the perfect accessory for outdoor adventures and holidays in the sun. It would look perfect with that khaki or tan coloured outfit which seems to be making a comeback as we move into Spring/Summer months! It makes the perfect gift for friends and family.

28. Miglio Jewellery

My featured business this week is… Miglio Jewellery!

Screen shot 2016-01-05 at 21.52.06.png

Miglio Jewellery are a South African jewellery business based in the UK who I met recently at the Soeurs de Luxe Xmas Bloggers party.

Jewellery is an expression of individual style and few collections say it better than Miglio. – migilo.com

Miglio Jewellery was founded in South Africa by a husband and wife who had a passion for jewellery design. Each piece of jewellery has had a dedicated team to design and manufacture the piece to the highest quality and standard.

Miglio works under a single roof where operations are integrated from production through to distribution. 80% of all Miglio jewellery is manufactured here and the factory does 100% of the assembly and hand-finishing under strict quality control. – migilo.com

This stunning designer jewellery is made using the very best materials. I absolutely adore the range of colours and metals used in their collections, particularly their rich copper and rose gold colours which look so striking with an evening outfit. I also love their dramatic geometric and heart shapes which have such a beautiful, smooth finish to them. Their use of leather in their necklaces and bracelets gives the collections an ‘earthy’ feel and has the ability to be so versatile in terms of styling.

I received a beautiful necklace from Miglio on the day of the event. Not only did it look of a high quality design but it also feels that way too. I was so impressed by this exceptional piece of jewellery that it is now one of my absolute favourite necklaces and I wore it on New Years Eve as part of my evening outfit.

Check out some of my favourites from their beautiful collection below!

25. Miss Milly

My featured business this week is…Miss Milly!

Screen shot 2015-11-17 at 21.32.10.png

Miss Milly are a wholesale jewellery business that I came across when I attended Pure London last February. Launching in 2012, they have some stunning pieces which look like miniature pieces of art!

Usually I’m not overly keen on large designs in jewellery unless I’m wearing a fairly plain, simple outfit, however all of these designs seem so versatile that I feel I could quite easily adapt an outfit to the design of the jewellery I choose to accessorise with.

I have a super long wishlist of jewellery from Miss Milly, most of which will definitely be going on my Christmas list this year. The colours are absolutely gorgeous and they can be dressed up for a night out or can be worn in the daytime to work or out with friends. All jewellery is nickel-free, lead-free and cadmium-free.

Every item has free delivery in the UK and comes with free gift packaging – the perfect way to shop for Christmas gifts!

After buying my gorgeous faux fur scarf from Miss Selfridge recently, I have gone navy obsessed! Navy is definitely the new black for me so when I came across this necklace (and matching bracelet!) on the website I knew it had to go top of my wishlist for Christmas.

Screen shot 2015-11-17 at 21.34.15.png

I have received three beautiful pieces from Miss Milly to review with each item delicately wrapped in a purple tissue paper, they were beautifully presented. The first was this stunning long heart necklace. Decorated with intricate detail, this pretty necklace has a long chain with a heart charm. I was pleasantly surprised by this necklace as I often find these to be made of quite a thin metal. This necklace however, felt well made and durable. £11.85

wpid-2015-11-17-22.12.17.jpg.jpeg

wpid-2015-11-17-22.13.37.jpg.jpeg

The second piece was this set of starry earrings. Besides my pearl earrings that I literally wear on a daily basis, I go through phases of getting addicted to wearing the same pair of dangly earrings. I feel like space, stars and planets are definitely in trend for Autumn/Winter 2015 so I’ll definitely be using them to glam up my evening Christmas party outfits! I love the different colour metals used, it definitely gives them that unique, handmade look. £12.45

wpid-2015-11-17-21.59.43.jpg.jpeg

My favourite piece that Miss Milly has been kind enough to send through to me has to be this blue disc bracelet. I loved the stones in this bracelet and love that it is elasticated meaning it is so easy to put on and take off. When holding the bracelet up in the light the stones sparkled with a rainbow of colours. I will definitely be taking this on my holidays next year when I jet off to Dubai. The perfect way to accessorise a cute holiday outfit!£16.50

Screen shot 2015-03-23 at 21.28.48

This week I am featuring jewellery designer, Alex Monroe. I first came across Alex Monroe on Facebook as another small business had shared their post on their newsfeed. The post caught my eye featuring their stunning new ‘Beyond the Sea’ collection which has recently been launched in store, online and also in Liberty.

Screen shot 2015-03-23 at 21.55.54

London based Alex Monroe has been designing jewellery for over 25 years and is inspired by natural world creating all of his original designs by hand. I think it is fair to say that I absolutely love every single item on this website! From floral rings to honeybee earrings and bicycle necklaces in gold, rose gold and silver. There is something to go with every outfit. I absolutely love watches by Olivia Burton and these natural world inspired pieces definitely compliment them!

Beyond the Sea is their most recent collection. A collection inspired by sea creatures, boats and all things nautical! I love the statement octopus necklace below and the cute intricate detail of the crab ring.

10. Mojiana

Our featured business is… Mojiana!

I first discovered Mojiana at Pure London when I visited a few weeks ago (Click here to read my post on the event!) Their pieces were featured on the catwalk in several collections and definitely stood out as something a bit more unique and unusual.

logo-1

I want to share a collection that I absolutely adore – the Galaxy collection. A collection made up of bold, statement pieces which incorporate a range of materials. I have only recently really got into statement jewellery but once I started purchasing statement necklaces I can’t seem to stop! I wear them on all my nights out now and they definitely add that little bit extra to any outfit. i have included a couple of my favourite pieces below from the Galaxy collection below but make sure you take a look through the whole collection though as I would love to hear what your faves are! One thing I noticed about this collection is the range of patterns and shapes – every piece is different with its own different style which is what I particularly love about the collection. There are some fantastic pieces to choose from.
