22. My Flash Trash

This week my featured business is… My Flash Trash!

My Flash Trash are a jewellery business based in London. I first came across them at a Pure London event as I spotted their mini trash cans and thought they were such a unique, cool way of storing jewellery! They were originally founded by Amber Atherton who developed a blog into an online marketplace for up and coming jewellery designers. My Flash Trash now has a celebrity following with everyone from Rihanna to Beyonce, Cara Delevingne to HRH the Duchess of Cambridge.

They specialise in charm jewellery and specifically a unique style of charm bracelet. I love charm bracelets as they’re such a cute way to keep memories with you and My Flash Trash offer a range of different charms for every occasion. I have included a couple of my faves below!

I absolutely love their quote: “we create playful and bold accessories to bring out your sassy side. we share a passion for not taking life or fashion too seriously, and believe in empowering girls to run the world.” I love the playful nature of this business, emphasising that girls just want to have fun!

Launching in 2014 they are based in London and have produced collections that include hoodies, T-Shirts, bomber jackets and beanie hats. Each item includes either a really cute fox emblem or a beautiful typography of their Foxford Vintage logo making each item unique.

My absolute favourite item is the Foxford bomber jacket. It looks so comfortable and warm! I have also put a couple of my favourite items below including a couple of cute T-Shirts so you can see how beautiful the typography is. All the items are perfect for Sunday lounging around or walks in the park.

11. Ismad London

Our featured business is… Ismad London!

Ismad London, set up by founder Isabelle in 2003 is eco-friendly leather accessories business with beautiful bags inspired by handcrafted African crafts. What I loved most about these bags is how beautifully handcrafted they look, as though a lot of care has gone into the manufacture of them. I’m not usually a fan of leather accessories, but after looking through the pieces on this website there are a few that I have absolutely fallen in love with including the Alice Bag, Camera Small and the Sac A Dos collection.

The Alice Bag is one of my absolute favourite pieces on the website. A sweet, compact girly bag which is practical and has the ability to match with any outfit. It comes in a range of colours including Tan, Black and Chocolate with a number of pockets and an adjustable shoulder strap. I love the chocolate colour, shown below, which I would probably wear with a pretty floral dress in the spring. It is currently £89 with free shipping.

For bloggers like myself, having a camera is a necessity. The Camera Small bag provides the perfect solution for carrying not only the camera but any additional batteries and components you may need! It has two pockets at the front with individual buckles and a main compartment also with a buckle offering a secure fastening. I’m usually a bit funny when it comes to buckle fastenings as those bags don’t usually have much security for valuables however this bag is fantastic as it offers a zip compartment too! It is also available in a range of colours and is produced using eco-friendly leather. It is currently £89 with free shipping.

Sac A Dos is great for those who enjoy travelling. It’s great for a day trip that I would take out sightseeing or on trips over the summer. It has a great main pocket and a smaller pocket located on the front with a buckle fastening. It also has a fab secret pocket at the back which is perfect for storing any valuables! It is currently priced at £75 with free delivery.

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.
