My featured business this week is… Miglio Jewellery!

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!

My Christmas Wishlist for 2015!

So it’s the middle of December and after gorging on the first of many sweet treats to come over the festive season (if unlike me you have resisted the temptation to eat them all!) it’s time to create the wishlist of all wishlists! I love a wishlist.. and to be honest my wishlist is ongoing! That’s enough of saying wishlist for now!….wishlist.

I recently went on a major spending spree in Waterstones coming away with £50+ worth of gorgeous new hardback books from my favourite bloggers, vloggers and fashionistas, a review of which will be coming soon! I still love curling up with a good book and a couple on my wishlist this Christmas include:

Fleur de Force – The Glam Guide (I’m obsessed with blogger/vlogger books at the mo!)

Dita Von Teese – Your Beauty Mask (She is my ultimate beauty icon! Even her front cover is stunning!)

Alexander McQueen – Claire Wilcox (After seeing the exhibition, I felt intrigued to learn more about the designer)

Lisa Eldridge – Face Paint, The Story of Make Up (Just look at the front cover!!)

I am majorly getting into Charlotte Tilbury make up. Not only are the products looking super cute, the names of the different products are so unique and I’m super excited as we now have our very own branch in London!

Lip Cheat, Pillowtalk – £16

Keeping with beauty and I think it’s time to admit that yes, I’m a Naked addict. By that I mean the gorgeous eyeshadow palettes from Urban Decay that have literally taken the blogging community by storm. I’m not going to bore you with yet another review of these fantastic eyeshadows – everyone knows they’re amazing by now. However, I am going to pop a couple on my wishlist and hope to inspire you to do the same. Once you do, there’s just no going back. (For those of you who are interested I am going to be doing a W7 palette review, which in my opinion are just as fabulous on a budget buy!)

My absolute fave palette, Naked 2 – £38

How cute is this Fujifilm pink camera?! I adore it! Or if you’re a massive Hello Kitty fan check this one out too! I was debating getting one last Christmas but never got round to it.

My computer is literally so old it’s practically running Windows 98 (which is saying something as it’s a Macbook!!) so it’s definitely in need for an upgrade. I have been looking at getting a netbook for a while now – something that I can pop in my handbag so I can set myself up in a coffee shop over lunch and get on top of my blogging. I love this ACER from Currys, which is sleek and versatile, perfect for working on the move!

In 2016 I want to get mega organised with my blog and in order to do so I am looking to get a Blogger Planner. These Blogger Planners are perfect for keeping organised, planning content and brainstorming new ideas. They also have such lovely quotes and are seasonal, offering beautiful pastel shades in the Summer and blacks, greys and whites in Winter. Available from The Bloggers Planner.

In 2016 I want to fill my home and life with everything rose gold. I can’t describe how much I love this colour. A slightly pinker version of a copper colour, it looks most fabulous with rich dark purples and white.

Fairy Lights from Christmas Time UK – £34

When I was last in Debenhams (One of my fave department stores with excellent sales!) I spotted these gorgeous Ted Baker PJ’s. All of Ted Baker’s sleepwear and lingerie range is so beautifully silky and soft and so perfect for curling up in on a Winter’s evening. It’s a shorts and vest set too meaning you won’t get too overly toasty curled up under layers of duvets and blankets!

I am totally besotted with the new Michael Kors Rose Gold perfume. Not only is it such a stunning colour but it smells so yummy that I kept the sample in my bag for weeks! Definitely check it out if you haven’t already. I hope you love it as much as I do.

I came across jewellerybox.co.uk at the #bigbloggersconference that I recently attended. Each blogger received a cute little gift from them which was beautifully wrapped up in brown paper. My gift was a set of stunning earrings with bracelet of a pretty little flower.

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.
