Win a Trip to Rome with Jones Bootmaker*


Blogging is giving me a serious case of wanderlust at the moment and some of my favourite posts to read are the ones that showcase the holidays and adventures fellow bloggers have been on. I’m still not sure what my holiday plans (if any) will be but I’m totally going to be entering to win a trip to Rome with Jones Bootmaker and keeping my fingers and toes tightly crossed.

I almost feel like I shouldn’t be sharing this as the more people who enter the lesser my chances, but I’m the generous sort so here’s a brief idea of what is up for grabs…

“We’re giving you the chance to win a luxury European city break to Rome for two, including
flights, transfers, four nights accommodation at a 5* hotel and excursions to: The Colosseum, The Vatican Museums, The Sistine Chapel, St Peter’s Basilica
and The Borghese Gallery and Gardens.

All entrants will receive 10% OFF their next purchase with Jones Bootmaker. You will receive an email qualifying you for the discounts within 24hours of entering.”

Just promise me one thing, if one of you, my lovely blog readers happens to win then please pack me in to your suitcase!


Win an Armani Exchange Watch with Babla’s Jewellers*

I love an excuse to hold a giveaway on the blog and being the watch enthusiast that I am when Babla’s Jewellers got in touch offering up the Jullietta Watch by Armani Exchange to one of my readers I jumped at the chance.
Both Babla’s Jewellers and Armani Exchange are new ones on me; I’d heard of both but never really took much of a detailed browse. Clearly I’ve been living in ignorance as Babla’s stock a huge selection of Armani Exchange watches which offer designer style at an affordable price.
I really love this tan and silver watch and I won’t lie, I’d love to fix it to win my own giveaway (but obviously that would be very, very wrong!). If you’re equally as taken with it as I am then follow the easy steps below and get your chance!

Giveaway open for two weeks from today. Winner will be contacted within 24 hours by myself to arrange your prize. Open to UK readers of this little blog.

Lee Renee’s fabulous fruity jewellery and giveaway!

It’s been a while since I introduced a new jewellery brand on the blog and so it’s with great pleasure I can share with you the master of delicious delicates, Lee Renee. Lee contacted me a couple of weeks ago asking if she could send me a piece of her work to keep, and generously she also offered up a piece for one of my readers to win, too!

Before I get on to that though, here’s a bit about Lee Renee (taken from her website)
“British jewellery designer Lee Renée has already built a strong name in the fine-fashion jewellery sector thanks to her signature blend of delicate, exacting and narrative-driven pieces that are easy to wear and tell powerful, distinctive stories. Lee’s work regularly graces the fashion pages and Vogue magazine voted her into their list of jewellery designers to watch for 2015.

Lee launched her brand in July 2012 after spending 3 years retraining as a silversmith under some of St. Martin’s and Hatton Garden’s finest – the heart of London’s jewellery quarter – and Lee is also a member of the British Jeweller’s Association (BJA). Before that she’d been working in the creative world of advertising for many years but always knew that jewellery design was her first love. After this life transition her middle name Renée – meaning rebirth – took on a new significance so she decided to use it in her brand name.

Lee is inspired by childhood memories, ancient civilisations, the weird and the wonderful, the dark and the avant-garde. She believes jewellery should engage the senses and doesn’t have to feel too serious or grown-up, but should inject some colour and excitement into your styling whilst also being built to last and with you for a very long time, that’s why she makes quality investment pieces that will give you lots of joy and a lifetime of wears – who said fashion has to be frivolous?!

Everything is skilfully handmade by Lee and her team of Hatton Garden’s master craftspeople in London. We hope you have as much fun wearing them as we do making and creating them for you.”
