Love From..?

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we thought we would compile a list of our loveliest gifts to share with that special someone this Saturday. Whether you celebrate Valentine's Day or not, here are a few pieces of inspiration to get you in the mood! 
Love light - £60.00, Star light - £25.00
These eye-catching pieces are a failsafe hit with everyone - with the pretty, off-white bulbs giving a nod to retro designs and the size of both meaning they would look great in the smallest of spaces - bringing light and love wherever they are put! What better way to show you care than with one simple, luminous word? Enough to brighten anyone's day. Both pieces have a gorgeous vintage feel to them so are perfectly fitting for any style of home and are lovely and compact, being battery operated and suitable for hanging or simply on display on a shelf. The 'Love' light is also available in red, whilst the 'Star' light comes in a larger size aso in red.
Bath melts - £2.50
 Valentine's Day doesn't just have to be for those who are in a relationship and if anything, it's a perfect excuse to treat yourself, a family member or friend just to remind them how special they are in your life. What better way to do this than by allowing yourself (or lucky person of choice) a little luxury? These bath bombs and melts are the most indulgent, purse-friendly way to set aside some much needed time to yourself and relax! This time of year can be stress-ridden, not to mention cold and tiring, so set aside half an hour one evening with one of these bath treats. Packed with moisturising oils and light, floral scents, these bath bombs and melts are just what's needed this time of year.
Tote - £12.00, Card (top right) -£2.75 and botton left - £2.50
For those of us who don't take Valentine's too seriously, happier spending it with a group of friends or a quiet evening in, a different approach to showing your love is with the gift of laughter! These tote bags are briliantly funny for a friend or partner and with one of these cards thrown in the mix it's the recipe for your own romantic comedy.

This is just a very small selection of gorgeous gifts we have in store at the moment so do pop in for a browse or give us a call on 01273 676676 for any mmore gift ideas! Have a lovely day whatever you get up to! x

Glove Me Do...

A very chilly "hello" from us today - we finally got a smattering of snow here in Brighton (more like sleet, that lasted for minutes - but still very exciting!) and we are certainly feeling the cold. The harsh conditions can be a nightmare for your skin and for those with as bad circulation as me, these gloves will be your snowy saviour.
All gloves - £19
These leather/ leather and suede gloves are the perfect cold cure as, not only are they lined with a beautiful velvety material, everyone knows leather gloves are incomparable for keeping out the cold and retaining the heat due to the nature of the material. Leather gloves are particularly durable and mold to the shape of your hands after wearing frequently, which gives them a gorgeous quality and well, fit like a glove! Although leather isn't renowned for being waterproof, it is certainly wind proof, making them ideal for the weather we're having at the moment and will definitely see you through many winters to come.

The detailing on each pair of gloves is beautiful and gives each pair a distinctive and unique look, for example the pair on the far left  have a gorgeous little bow to give it a pretty, feminine quality, whereas the tan pair on the right have a more androgynous look making them doubly wearable and easy to style. 

Top left we have a quilted design for a more 50s look of a classic driving glove, but updated with the sweet bow detail again, whilst next to it we have a pair of our buttery-soft suede gloves. Although not as stiff as the leather gloves and slightly finer material, the suede is equally as warm and luxurious with a much more move able quality to the material. 

This button detailing is a perfect homage to Brighton's artistic community, with bold contrasting colours reflecting our creative perfectly! Available in burgundy and a deep brown, these gloves would look gorgeous with a bright scarf or coat to really make the colours on the glove pop.
Rabbit fur arm warmers - £20

These beautiful little gloves are much longer in length, reaching up to the elbows to keep you nice and toasty but with the added benefit of leaving your hands free to text, type or write away whilst the irresistibly soft fur cuff will warm you up nicely. Great for indoor use or moving in to Spring, or even those milder winter days when you still need that little extra layer, these handy (excuse the pun) fingerless glove-come-arm warmers are great for just popping in your bag everyday and if British weather is anything to go by, you never know when you'll need them! Also available in a caramel brown, these little beauties are the most glamorous glove alternative this season.

We hope you enjoyed this post and hope to see you in store very soon! x
