I was sent three items from the site which give a great cross section of what they sell - One piece of jewellery, one accessory and something from the stationery section too. The site is small at the moment with only a select few things in each section but the prices are so affordable and the choices of products so lovely that I can see the site being a great success.
From the jewellery section I was sent this Skeleton Hand Necklace. When I first saw it I wasn't sure how I felt about it; it's Exactly what I'd have gone for a few years ago because I was still really big on skulls and skeletons but I'm more of a flowers and birds kinda girl now.
That aside, it's grown on me. I think it's kinda cool, I love the shade of metal it's in and the shape of it, I dunno I like it. Maybe I shouldn't have been in such a hurry to stop wearing the sorts of things I used to like, there's plenty of space for all of them!
The necklace is an amazingly priced £1.50 so you really can't go wrong - There's a range of other lovely necklaces (some of which I'm tempted to order myself), bracelets, ring and earrings available on the site, too, for a range of different tastes.
When I knew I was getting sent some things I hoped I'd be sent one of the cute, little coin purses, as I'm an absolute sucker for purses, so I was very pleased with this. It's only small, but what do you expect for £3? I love the pattern of the fabric and it's just what I need right now. I've been taking the lightest bag I can when I pick Ethan up from school on my two days but that means no purse so I've been thinking about trying to find something small, and light, to take in the bag so that I have just a bit of money with me when I go out, I always feel so vulnerable with nothing - This little purse should be perfect.
As well as purses there's also a section for hair accessories (which is currently empty) and phone cases on the site - I wish the phone case they do fit my phone as it's really cute!
Lastly I got sent something from their stationery section. These little sticky memo pads are really fun and a fantastic little novelty for someone who is big on the organisation - I've been pretty lax on the organising, recently, though my tablet and phone have kept me on track. I've missed being organised on paper, though, so maybe these will help. These would also be fun for a little one as the sticking plaster style would definitely appeal (I know I'll be having to keep these out of reach of Ethan if I want to keep them for myself). As well as these they have some adorable little cupcake ones which I'm thinking about ordering (Edit: Which I am in the process of ordering, along with another necklace - The postage is reasonable too)
As I said above, there's not a lot on the site yet but there's some real gems at prices you won't often see, so it's well worth taking a look as you never know what'll catch your eye. As well as all of the sections I've mentioned above there's also a beauty section which, currently, has press on nails in it.
I really look forward to seeing how things progress for this little, start up, company as Shannon is lovely and she's got a great idea which has been put together really well. Check out
