You know what they say, ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ and personally for me I love nothing than timeless classic pieces of jewellery. Whether it’s a statement piece for a special occasion or something for every day it’s a sure fire way to find a way to my heart if you turn up with a beautifully wrapped gift box containing jewellery, whether it’s new, antique, vintage or pre-owned jewellery.
I am always doing that thing of browsing websites and dreaming of things I’d love to own, I frequently create my virtual wish list and it amuses me to think if money was no object what would I have. One of my favourite online jewellery websites for finding quirky pieces has to be Aspens Jewellers as they excel themselves in having items that are a little bit extra special. Aspens is more than just another faceless jewellery website, they are a family business, and in 2011 celebrated an impressive 100 years trading as an independent family business. Something pretty special in this day of age of shops going into administration.
We all know what an expensive time Christmas can be for many families; with a typical family spends more than £820 on Christmas, according to YouGov. So wouldn’t it be fabulous if you could have a big windfall online to help ease the cost?
I enjoy bingo, it’s a fun game and going out with the girls for a night out we always have a giggle. Best of all with the surge in online bingo it’s never been easier (or more fun) to get the girls in and have a take away, a few bottles of wine and start enjoying some of the great sign up offers that are often available for those that are online bingo ‘newbies’ and are dipping their toes in the water of online bingo for the first time.
I have to admit when I was pregnant I didn’t really splurge out on maternity wear and there wasn’t an awful lot of choice on the high street; I seemed to spend most of my pregnancy in leggings and jumpers and my pregnancy style was more slummy than yummy, but recently with the surge in online shopping and beautiful pregnant celebrities sporting stunning designer maternity wear it’s never been easier for a mum to be to look stylish and glamorous whilst remaining comfortable.
I’ve just shuddered slightly at writing the word Christmas, I actually cannot believe that we are well into November and in less than 4 weeks I will be flying with Miss Roo to the sunshine state LA for a two week break with my brother (sorry to you all who will be freezing in possibly the worst winter for 100 years).
I have however been my usual thoughtful self and been scouring the web for some gorgeous snuggly goodies to keep you warm, happy and fed if you do get hit with a snowdrift! So here are my essential Christmas must have’s to get me through the festive period.
