Mothers Day Presents - Mum Necklaces, Mum Jewellery

There´s always a reason to buy something isn´t there?  Just as Christmas finishes, the Valentines Promotions arrive. The minute Valentines is over and done with, the adverts start for Easter Eggs, and now Mothers Day is on its way.  It never ends!

So what are you going to buy your wonderful mother this Mothers Day?  Nothing? Chocolates? Flowers? Or a nice piece of jewellery that she will remember?

I´ve found these cute Diamond Mum Pendants for you, perfect for Mothers Day and not too expensive either!

Click on the pictures for more information about the product and price.  Personally I love the White Gold Pendant, but it all depends on the colour gold your mum normally wears.

Cath Kidston - Presents for girls age 10, 11, 12, 13

Cath Kidston (UK)

Buying birthday presents for young ladies age from 10 onwards is not easy!

They´re not really into toys anymore, games for nintendos are quite expensive, and you never really know what clothes they are into.

Last Christmas I filled up my daughters stocking with some gorgeous Cath Kidston products.  The Star Shower Gel, Body Lotion and also a very cute Shower Cap.  

It was an absolute winner!  She loves them!

So if in doubt about presents for young ladies, or even older ladies….buy a few little items from Cath Kidston.  They will love it!

Karen Millen Marbella - New Season


Im loving the new Karen Millen range, a little more casual than normal, although Im not sure they will have the full range here.  Here in Marbella we have a Karen Millen Shop in Puerto Banus and also a concession in El Corte Ingles Puerto Banus but all too often they seem to stock a lot of the fancy dresses and really smart items.  That´s where buying online comes in use!!!

Generally Karen Millen is very good and once you know your size, it generally fits throughout the whole range.   

At the moment Karen Millen have an extra 20% off their sale items.  Could be worth having a look.  Sometimes sale items are very similar to the latest seasons.

Zadig & Voltaire Marbella

Zadig & Voltaire are one of the latest brands to join El Corte Ingles Puerto Banus.  Last time I was in London I saw they had a shop on Hampstead High Street London too.  Really nice clothes and more importantly great fabrics.  Casual clothes with an edge Id say!

Being me, I waited till the sales and bought a lovely black v neck jumper which has the stone studded wings on the back.  Normally about 170euros reduced to 116euros.  For me, its the fabric that is fantastic.  100% merino wool which is so comfortable to wear.

If you look around at other brands, you will find they maybe have 15% cashmere, mainly polyester though…which I find really bad when they are charging over 120Euros for it!

Will post a picture soon as I cannot find the jumper I bought on their website.

Mango Biker Jacket with Studded Union Jack


A friend of mine, popped in today, all excited about her new leather jacket, that she was wearing  She had literally just bought it from Mango.  I really liked it, and had been looking for one similar.  She said there was just one jacket left in XS.  I couldn´t resist!

So, school pickup, a few chores to do, drop off at homework classes and a quick drive to La CaƱada Shopping Centre, rushing into Mango to find this one jacket left.  I found it!!!

What a bargain.  Real Leather, with a studded Union Jack on the back, very similar to the new collection out now but double the price.

The jacket was 59€uros originally about 149€.  69pounds in UK.    An absolute bargain!  But you must see the back of it.  If you click the picture will take you through to more photos of it.  It looks so much better on than in this picture.

No.1 Gift For Wife´s Christmas Present

The Diamond Store

It´s that time of year when giving is far better than receiving, unless of course you are on the receiving end of a gift bought from The Diamond Store.

Still stuck for ideas for your wife, girlfriend, daughter or any other special female in your life?   Whilst, you may spend a little more that you originally wanted, I will save you a lot of time searching (and time is money) and you will give a gift that they will absolutely love and treasure forever.


Because I was bought this gift a few years ago and I never forget when and where I was given them and wear them every single day.  I love them, they truly are the best present ever.

What are they?

A beautiful pair of Classic Diamond Stud Earrings….quite simple.

Want to look at a few more different styles and price ranges?

Links of London UK

Mary J Blige & Jessie J

Wow wow wow!!! What a pair, Mary J Blige & Jessie J appearing together tonight on X Factor.

Imagine receiving a telephone call from The Queen of Soul, Mary J Blige asking to sing with you!

Both Mary & Jessie looked stunning tonight, both dressed in black, Mary in a knee length black dress and Jessie wearing a black jacket and trousers.  Does anyone else think Jessie looks like Pink?

I  wasn´t a fan of Jessie J until I saw her in Concert a couple of years ago, where I was converted.  Jessie J is an incredible singer, song writer and entertainer.  An amazing young woman!

What did you think of their song and performance tonight?
