Goodbye Rubies and Welcome Peridot

In the month of August we bid farewell to the ruby, and welcome the beautiful peridot. We must also welcome the celebrities who are celebrating their birthdays; Kylie Jenner and Mila Kunis. It would only seem right that we handpick their favourite outifts and pair it with their birthstone. Kylie Jenner has been sweeping the headlines recently, and we have to say that this is one of the most lush outfits she has sported. To match Kylies’ sweet and innocent look here, we have chosen this lovely heart shaped peridot necklace. Mila Kunis has also been in the news lately due to her pregnancy and forthcoming marriage to hearth-throb Ashton Kutcher is the stunning Mila Kunis. After a lot of debating we have finally picked this outfit which she wore to the Oscars and which we absolutely loved. We matched it with some peridot, citrine and smoky quartz diamond earrings. We have also picked our top 5 favourite peridot jewellery, in order to give you a helping hand to glamourise your August Wardrobe! At number 5 we have …

Behind the scenes with Britain’s Got Talent’s runner, Katie Unger!

  We had the pleasure of spending five minutes on the couch with fabulous Katie Unger, who works behind the scenes on Britain’s Got Talent and has also worked behind the scenes on Take Me Out and Strictly Come Dancing! Exciting stuff right? 1.       What exactly is a runner, and how did you decide to get into this career? A runner is an assistant. You can assist in the office with ordering stationary, printing off scripts and helping with paperwork…. or a runner on location where you help with contributors and tea and lunch runs for talent and the crew…. or in studio where you can be on the studio floor or in the gallery where the show is directed and produced from. I decided to get into this career because working in television is an extremely exciting job to have and you build up a valuable skill set as well. 2.       What is your favourite type of show to work on? My favourite type of shows to work on are the …

Breaking news (almost) .. Get the Royal look

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, made a charity visit to Blessed Sacrament School in Islington, North London this morning. The reason behind the visit was to view the progress of M-PACT Plus, a project which helps address the difficult issue of addiction in families. The Duchess was dressed in a gorgeous shocking pink dress designed by Goat with nude heels. Taking inspiration from the lovely Duchess, we have put together six different looks using her dress, so you can get the royal look too!  photo credit: Andrew Parsons 1. The  Diamond Dazzler: Be the Diamond Dazzler, by adding a simple diamond necklace, earrings or a bracelet to this dress. Or why not go all out and add them all? The beauty of diamonds is that they don’t need to be big to be noticed. So whether you go for little diamond studs or long drop earrings, you’ll surely get noticed. We recommend wearing this diamond necklace with the dress. Its so simple and elegant, and if worn with small round, diamond studs, then there’ll be …

Burberry’s A/W 2014 Campaign

Today we can’t ignore Burberry’s divine A/W 2014 campaign! Shot by the legendary Mario Testino, the campaign features best buds Cara Delevigne and Suki Waterhouse, working together for the first time! The girls are joined by Malaika Firth, a rising model star, and three male models, Callum Ball, Tarun Nijjer and Oli Green (who are all pretty droolworthy). Here we not only swoon over the collection, but have handpicked some of our key pieces which we think Burberry need to know about! 1. To go with the purple and blue autumnal tones of Burberry’s A/W collection, we have picked this stunning amethyst ring. It might be a simple design, but that’s what makes it versatile, and you will see similar rings on the fingers of many fashionistas this autumn.   2. The incomparable design of this diamond heart pendant makes it a real one-off as the diamonds are baguette cut, adding further interest to this unique design. It is perfect to spice up the classic Burberry trenchcoat, a staple that has seen many years of success. 3. Set …
