How to take care of your statement and costume jewellery.

We all like things which are made to last, and sometimes we can even prolong the lifespan of something by taking a little care of it. 
Here are a few of our handy tips for keeping your costume & statement jewellery looking fresh and dazzling for longer.
  • Always put jewellery on last, and take it off first. This stops snagging on clothing when being worn or removed and reduced the chances of breaking your jewels.
  • Make up first & perfume first, jewellery second. That's right, apply your make up and perfume first, as not to expose your jewellery to chemicals, as this could result in discolouration and tarnish.
  • Don't clean your jewellery with abrasive substances. Abrasive cleaning products are likely to damage or tarnish your costume jewellery, and even weaken the glue which holds the jewels in place. We recommend using as little liquid as possible. Try a drop of shampoo (baby shampoo works best) in a little water, and clean with a Q-tip or cotton swab.
  • Store your jewellery in a cool place, out of direct sunlight and separately. Exposure to extreme sunlight can cause discolouration to your jewellery, like when you see an old car in the desert - and we don't want that! We also recommend that you store each piece of jewellery separate so that you lessen the risk of scratching or tarnishing your jewels  - organza bags are perfect for this.
  • Don't submerge your jewellery for long periods in water, as this can lead to discolouration, tarnish and even weakening of the glues which hold gems in place.
We hope with these few handy tips, you can keep your jewels looking amazing for longer :)

How has your life changed in a year?

Wow. The past year has absolutely flown by, actually to think about it, it's kind of scary. Between the two of us, a guy and a girl with no real experience setting up a website, or selling anything, let alone setting up a brand, now have this amazing thing that we do, a love. 

It's weird really, we started off with a few idea's and a bit of work and we rolled with it, we took the leap and thought 'If we don't do this now, will we ever do it?'

I think that line of thought can really be applied to anything in life, I guess. We probably all have a moment in life where we regret not taking an opportunity, or just going for it, whether it be conquering a fear, or applying for that dream job, sometimes we feel apprehensive about change. 

Life is constantly changing, and I feel that we do focus on the negative far too often, as opposed to thinking about the positive, and what might be if we just take a chance?

How to tie a winter scarf.

It's that time of year again where we need to find out our socks and hats, and wrap up warm in our winter scarves, but how do we wear our scarves? We've seen a wide variety of ways to rock your winter scarf, and here's out guide to help you get it just right.

 

1: ShortJust fold the scarf in half put it around your shoulders. Take one loose end piece and pull it over and under the loop. Take the second end piece and go under and over the same loop.

 

 

2: Wrap - This works well with a blanket scarf or cape, simply drape the scarf around your shoulders like you would a blanket.

 

 

3: Long & Knotted: Drape the scarf around your neck so that both ends are an even length, then with one side only tie a loose knot and then thread the other side through.

 

 

4: The Loop - This is a classic, wrap the scarf around your neck and then pull one end so that it is slightly longer than the other. Wrap that end loosely around your neck and then let both ends hang.
