Designing my own jewellery & starting my own business

For the past few weeks, Iv not been feeling myself, stress at work has become a problem and iv needed to take a step back to think about what makes me happy and to focus my energy on the right things.

A while back I started making and selling jewellery. I sold some bracelet’s to friends, family and also to a bride for her to wear on her wedding day! This is my passion, I love creating and a making pretty jewellery. So I started again but made a few changes.

Iv grown up a lot since the first time I started making my own jewellery, this time I’m creating simple, delicate unique pieces drawing inspiration from nature – from the colours of the ocean to the colours of forests and mountains. I pair rough cut stones, gems and beads with sterling silver charms; I love working with stones and gems as each one has its own character, no two are ever the same.

These are a few of pieces I have started working on, I would love it if you could leave a comment or message me with your opinions! Would you wear them? Is there anything you would change?

There’s a great big beautiful tomorrow ~ Walt Disney

Since receiving my bangle I haven’t taken it of! The bangle is really high quality and is beautifuly engraved. They add a little Disney magic to your everyday, they look perfect on their own or stacked with other Lillian & Co bracelet’s.

Lillian & Co’s packaging is also high quality, my bangle came in a white velvet pouch and a white jewellery box which features their simple black text logo. The attention to detail from the packaging to the bangle it’s self makes this an awesome gift!!

Have a magical day!!

A day exploring London

Iv never had the chance to really see  London, every time I have visiting in the past I have never got the chance to explore and be a proper tourist. We started on Oxford street and walked to Harrods stopping along the way to look in shops and take photos, from Harrods we walked on to Buckingham palace, Big Ben and Trafalgar square.

After walking though a Trump protest, we then headed to M&M world and China town. I loved china town, we spent a bit of time exploring and taking photos, we also looked in a few Chinese sweet shops. On our way back to the car we walked though Soho and went to The Humming bird bakery for a few cupcakes!

Once we got in the car home we realized we have had walked over 11 miles !! Tip – wear comfy shoes!!!

There is still a lot of London still left to see but this trip has made me want to spend more time in the city. I will definitely be booking a weekend away to London soon!

 

Sophie Loves ~ Disney

One thing I haven’t talked about on my blog is my love for Disney. Disney was my childhood, just like many other children I was brought up watching the movies, singing the songs, wishing I was a mermaid with red hair and dreaming about the day I would find my own prince charming. Other children’s Disney childhood memories were the Disney parks, my family didn’t have the money to take my sister and I to any of the Disney park’s, so that’s still on my wish list now more than ever! So growing up Disney was just these amazing movies!

I was a very shy kid, I wasn’t very academic, drawing was the only thing I knew I could do and I could do well. Now that I have grown up only now I can see where my love for drawing and Art has come from it’s from Walt Disney! His animation style, creativeness and dream like personality which I don’t think anyone else in the world will ever have again made me want to draw and create. I have to thank Walt for inspiring me and giving me imagination! But most importantly, for making me believe in magic.
