I don’t think you can top off a gift of jewellery ever. Yes I love my shoes and my handbags, but there is something incredibly special about getting jewellery that nothing else can match, especially if it comes in a Tiffany Blue Box® ;) Continue reading
Find me a woman who doesn’t appreciate jewellery and a little sparkle in her life and I may stop buying shoes. Well for a month at least! My inner magpie is always on the lookout for that special dazzle you get with fine jewellery and last month I became captivated by a new jewellery brand based out of Dubai called Phioro.

I am such a shutterbug. If I’m not snapping away on my camera, I’m using my blackberry to capture pictures.

I love DINZ. It is possibly my favourite brand based in Dubai and I swear when I clamped eyes on this stunning statement necklace from their collection last year, I immediately sent a blackberry message to Dina Zahran, designer at DINZ to ask her how I could get my hand on it! The geometric designed statement necklace is gold-plated and features beautiful pastel enamel stones. It is also available in turquoise. The perfect accessory for styling up a simple outfit and its candy colours are just up my street!
Dina, I still want one! Available online at Dinz Boutique now.
“In a faraway land, there is a magical place called Sophie’s Closet. In this land, accessories roam free and there is plenty for everyone. Its founder Sophie is an ambassador for all sparkly things that women all over the world dream of.”
Welcome to Sophie’s Closet – my favourite online retailer for all things sparkly! Sophie’s selection of beautiful costume jewellery proves glamour doesn’t necessarily mean spending your entire month’s pay on a piece of jewellery. Stocking brands such as House of Harlow, LeiVanKash and Siman Tu, Sophie’s Closet is the first place I look for that piece of jewellery that will complete set me apart from others.
Here are my picks from the current collections from Sophie’s Closet.
CC Skye consistently creates the season’s must haves that perfectly fuse uptown elegance with downtown edge. My favourite from the collection has to be the turquoise rosary bracelet – perfect arm candy!
Fashionistas can’t get enough of Chan Luu’s boho-luxe jewelry with a cool eclectic spin and she has some serious A-list fans including Reese Witherspoon, Kate Hudson and Nicole Kidman. These Chan Luu cotton bracelets come in a variety of colours and at 300 dirhams are a great way of adding a pop of colour to any outfit. Load them up and have some fun!
If you are looking for some serious sparkly, look no further than Siman Tu. Inspired by a blend of Victorian and Art Deco styles and semi-precious stones, his intricately free-flowing pieces will turn any outfit from bland to fabulous. Siman Tu pieces are seen regularly adorning the cast of Gossip Girl.
If I could have them all I would. Especially the Olivia Rose ring in Rose Gold by LeiVanKash (top right) which has been on my wish list for a while now. I also recently bought a starfish ring from a boutique in London and having seen the Kenneth Jay Lane earrings to match, these will soon be my next acquisition!
Sophie is dedicated to making shopping in her closet fun and easy and as a result of her spreading the love and magic around the world, she offers free International delivery! How awesome is that?!
