Sparkle and Shine

What is a festive season without a bit of sparkle and shine? It is not Christmas without a bit of bling bling right? Well I believe so, and that is why I like to make sure my sparkling jewellery for the festive celebrations is in place. I will be wearing a new pair of sterling silver earrings this season; say hello to Silver Sale.

Silver Sale is a jewellery company specialising in sterling silver jewellery. The company sources, designs and curates contemporary jewellery collections that are high quality yet much more affordable than their direct competitors. Silver Sale promise to sell their jewellery for less than other jewellers of their standard, and I think that is the best thing I have heard about a company doing this season.

I had the option to select a set of Silver Sale jewellery. It took me awhile to decide on 1 (I wish I could have them all!) because there are so many beautiful designs on the website. But I finally settled for this Sterling Silver Double Twists Earrings and I am glad I did. They are a beauty to behold.

The earrings are dressy but yet laid back. I can wear this to almost every occasion and I like that about it. Silver Sale keep their promises, and have this on sale for £30, the RRP is £39, so there is a 23% savings here.

These stunning Sterling Silver Double Twist Earrings use a simple contemporary design to create maximum impact and it looks so beautiful. I particularly like the 2 gentle hoops which hang gracefully. I have nothing similar to this in my jewellery box, so I am thrilled I have these now.

These would make an affordable Christmas present or just a special gift to a jewellery loving female. I am so in love with my new earrings, can you tell?

Alicia Keys Covers ELLE UK December 2016

Now this is one magazine cover I am completely in love with. It is definitely the best December 2016 cover.

I am a massive fan of Alicia Keys, and I am very delighted to see she is a cover girl for ELLE UK The Feminism Issue December 2016. I have not seen Alicia Keys on a UK magazine cover for a very long time. I honestly can’t remember the last time I saw her on one, so this issue is like a breath of fresh air.

Alicia Keys chats exclusively with ELLE UK about her family, being a feminist, and going makeup free.

 

On feminism:

‘Let’s look the definition up because I have in my mind what I feel it means.” Reading on her phone, she continues: ” ‘The advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of political, social and economic equality’ – so yes. Yes, I am a feminist, and whoever isn’t is crazy…It’s about owning your power, embracing your womanhood.’

 

I agree with the fact that any woman who isn’t a feminist based on the original definition here, is crazy. I even wrote about being a feminist some months ago. But the problem today is there are various definitions of a feminist, and various types too. I don’t agree with a bunch of them, I think they are just overly excited but I do agree with the original definition Keys read out here, and I wonder who wouldn’t!

On going make-up free:

It took me forever to get this skin. I mean, I know how it feels to have a face full of bumps and pimples. I lived through that in the public eye. But when I first got pregnant [six years ago with her son, Egypt] I started to eliminate dairy from my diet and drank a lot more water, which made a huge difference to my skin. Some have called this a crusade. Well, I died laughing at that. I use to feel the pressure to appear as the music industry expected, but I don’t now.’

I am so happy to know she is now very comfortable in her own skin. I am hoping I get to that level of comfort some day. It is a work-in-progress but I will get there eventually.

 

What do you think of this issue? I am yet to read it but I want to. It sounds like a fab read. I can see myself grabbing an issue this weekend before it leaves the newsstands.
