Vicki chose the incredible Freedom Hub for proceeds of the sale of the necklace to go towards, and has now opened our eyes to a truly wonderful organisation. Find out more about the Freedom Hub here.

    SHOESDAY // The New Short Bang Necklace, sunny side up!

    Say hello to our brand new jewels on the site! We have just launched part 2 of our Mod Squad collection, and released three new artisan necklaces! 

    This is the Short Bang Necklace, which features double sided artisan beads, the side pictured a sunny yellow, and the back side is a darker black and navy tone. 

    To celebrate the launch this Tuesday we've selected this adorable pair of shoes, from Salvatore Ferragamo. Love the patent yellow and black, and those little bows are so cute!

    We know International Women's Week has wrapped up, but there is never NOT a good time to celebrate women. Our aim this year is to live boldly, and hope to inspire other women to do the same. We are cooking up some cool collaborations, and working on some projects that we are really excited about, so watch this space to see how we are going for gold with girl power this year!

    Even though we are saying SEEYASUMMER with our 20% off storewide sale (ends 7pm tonight, get on it!) we are still devouring stone fruits like no tomorrow! 

    This delightful recipe from the Pizzazzerie really hits the spot, and makes use of that random bottle of bourbon that's been sitting in the pantry for ages. 

    What you need: 

    - Bourbon (or whiskey)

    - Lemon juice

    - Simple syrup

    - Peach slices

    - Soda water

    Ahhhh, doesn't it just taste like the lovely last tinges of summer!
