I love silver charm jewellery. It is so versatile and can easily add the finishing touch to either jeans and a top (pretty much my standard mum uniform) or pretty spring dress.

Lily Charmed is a British jewellery company who create beautiful detailed, charm necklaces, bracelets and earrings. This week sees the launch of their new polished silver range which is now available in all charm designs as well as the traditional gold or matt silver finish.

So I could see just how lovely the new finish was they sent me a gorgeous anchor charm and compass charm on a silver chain and some star earrings.

I was delighted to receive the little white boxes tied up with turquoise ribbon and felt very special opening them! They were every bit as beautiful and delicate as they looked on the pictures and the silver polish finish was really lovely and shiny (great for spring and summer with a tan). I’ve happily worn my anchor and compass charms all week with a variety of different outfits, I love them and can tell that they are going to be become a firm favourite!

I particularly like the originality and variety of charm designs from Lily Charmed and could see myself starting a little collection as there are so many I like. I’ve also spotted some beauties to give as gifts, which they are perfect for as each charm piece comes with a beautiful card frame explaining the meaning behind the charm. This can also be personalised to make it even more appropriate and special, the perfect present for bridesmaids, mums, sisters or best friends.

tuI love keeping up with the latest fashion trends but as a stay at home mum I don’t have a very large budget for splashing out on a new wardrobe every season. This means I need to be very selective and pretty thrifty. One of my favourite places to pick up a gorgeously designed and well made garment is Sainsburys, TU.

I am known to compliment and question/interrogate my friends  “Oh that is such a lovely top / skirt / jumper, where is it from?” Very, very often, the answer is Sainsburys and every time I am surprised, maybe because it looks so very lovely and designery that I can’t quite believe it comes from a supermarket! This Autumn Winter Sainsburys have really exceeded all expectations, as September saw the relaunch of their TU brand with a gorgeous new AW range. It is really stunning, expensive looking and such good quality.

cape

I was sent an outfit for both Littlelish and myself to review. We chose 2 lovely dresses and I also chose the beautiful navy wool cape (above). Let me tell you there is not one day that has gone by, that I have not worn my new cape. I wear it with everything, it is so versatile, I adore it! I will be showing you different ways to wear a cape, so you can “wear it your way!” soon but in the meantime here are our lovely dresses from TU.

She looks so cute in it, don’t you agree? The dress is a great winter party dress and would even make a lovely Christmas dress. The red shoes are just divine and so so well made. She has already had a lot of wear out of them, you can’t beat a gorgeous pair of red shoes can you?

I opted for the checked dress £22. It is a perfect dressed up smartly for in the office or as an alternative to a jumper dress with boots, tights and a thick knit cardi for every day wear. You can also wear it as a smart casual option for going out, I wore mine recently out to dinner. This seasons shape, the tube dress is actually extremely flattering. Being a size 14 and by no means a skinny minnie, I wasn’t sure if the length and the neckline would flatter me but I think they do, I felt feminine without exposing too much of myself. I also felt warm as it is made out of lovely warm (but not too warm), quality fabric. The check is subtle enough so you are on trend without wearing full blown checkerboard. One very happy customer here.

Thank you for sending us these outfits, Sainsburys, we are thrilled to bits with them! Check out the full AW range at Sainsburys TU now.
