Gift guide! My picks of black Friday

Stocking fillers for her 

Stocking fillers are my all time favourite gifts to buy! they are so cute and fun. I've put together a little list of things I personally think would make the perfect stocking for a sister, friend or even a sneaky gift for yourself. 


Little bits and bobs is the perfect way to fill a stocking and make it super fun! I have put together this list of goodies that I personally love and thought you guys might love too! They are all super affordable mostly all under £5-£10! Lots are now even in the black Friday sale! WIN!


Home gifts

I am a huge home ware lover and I know lots of you that follow me are too. I think these would make perfect gifts and look a lot more expensive than they are! The pineapple mug is just £6.50!

Main gift ideas

Here is a list of gifts that are a little more expensive but would be lovely if you would prefer to buy one main present. I really love the idea of the Letter box flower subscription you can choose how often the flowers are sent and have a choice of lots of styles - this would be a gift that could continue all year! Jewellery/watches are always a good idea, I am loving everything bee at the moment. The mobile Polaroid printer is such a lovely idea! we all take so many photos on our phones but how often do we print them? this little printer allows you to print in Polaroid style straight from your phone.

DIY badge/pin Bag for a fraction of the price!



I think the badge, pin detailed bags are going to be a huge trend! They seem to be popping up everywhere. I recently bought the Bug cross body bag from Zara which you would of seen a little snap over on my Instagram. The good thing about this trend is that you can personalise with your own customisation, even if you buy a bag with badges already on like the ones below you can always add pins and badges to make the bag truly unique!


Bag pin bag - Zara interchangeable flap bag , Mustard Charm cross body bag - Zara, Badge detail black clutch - Topshop , Red insect detail bag- Zara , White badge detail coin bag - Topshop

To create my own I took a trip to primark to buy a plain black bag, you can buy new or use an old bag you want to revamp! I found this one which will be perfect as the material is soft and will be easy to pin, it is also a lovely size and has added chain detail on the strap! It was also super cheap at £7, they also had a selection of pin sets, I picked up one with a little pineapple and cacti but there was plenty to choose from. You can find such a wide selection of pins and badges , I especially like to shop on depop or etsy, just search for enamel pins or embroidered patches/badges.



I have a huge collection of vintage brooches which would add a personal touch to the bag and also make it appear a lot more expensive and unique. You can even stitch on charms and add chain detail.

Its simple! Its all about arranging your brooches, badges, patches how ever you like and over time you can change them up and add more. I Thought it might be cool to hunt down some letter charms in my initials or name to add too!



Let me know what you think of the badge/pin trend and if you are going to try this DIY

Cute Cabin Pod stay in Devon


 My parents treated us to a stay in this super cute pod in Sidmouth Devon and I just had to share it with you guys as it was the perfect weekend getaway. In this day and age it is so easy to get consumed with technology, constantly checking social media seeing the world through a lens rather than in real time. So this weekend I totally switched off (bar these images to show you!) with no internet, TV or gadgets. We all ate together , played games , went on walks and just totally relaxed.

These little pods were the perfect way to relax!



Staying in the pod was like camping but without all the effort, everything is all set up - you just need to take your own bedding. Each pod has a double bed, seating area with table which doubles up as a single bed, there is even a kettle, then outside you have your own set of wooden chairs and outdoor heater which makes it super cosy when BBQ-ing in the evenings.

It would be a lovely idea to hire out all four pods for a birthday weekend or for camping with friends as you would pretty much have the whole field to yourselves!


Kings down tail camp site  itself is such a lovely place to unwind surrounded by sheep and fields. The grounds are beautiful and really well kept. The toilets and shower/washing areas are super clean, the reception/shop is especially instagramable! It is situated in Sidmouth which make it so easy to visit Lyme Regis one of my favourite places! but also beer beach which you must visit if you stay here.


I really enjoyed my stay in the pod! Felt like a super cute little den! Let me know if you have stayed anywhere similar? I really want to go stay in a tree-house next!

My Bill Skinner Jewellery collection



My Love of Bill Skinner Jewellery started about year ago when I discovered the golden bee pendant necklace. I was searching pinterest as I had seen a girl wearing a bee pendant and just had to have one myself, at first I didn't notice the brand name but when I went on to research into the best bee pendant I found Bill Skinner jewellery. Not only did I instantly fall in love with the jewellery but the name Bill Skinner is actually the name of my Grandad, Bamp as we called him. He passed away just before my tenth birthday but I remember so much about him and miss him like crazy. Anyway last year I was about to go and have an operation that I was extremely nervous for when I actually came across the Bill Skinner jewellery. After my operation my Fiance surprised me with the golden bee pendant and now every time I wear a Bill Skinner piece I think of my Grandad.

Each piece is so intricately detailed and I was excited to shoot my collection to share with you.



Firstly the Bee and honeycomb friendship bracelet* - Its just so beautifully simple and would make the most perfect gift. 

The Mini baby bee* and Mini floral and bee* golden rings look amazing worn together, the more rings the better! These two are super affordable too, and you can even purchase them over on ASOS.

Next the Silver Baby bee and daisy necklace* which I team with the Silver baby bee pendant necklace* - these two make the perfect pair! but also look lovely and dainty worn separately.

The Baby bee ring in silver  - Now I do love all of my jewellery but this ring has to be one of my favourites! I actually treated myself to this one when I accomplished a big fear of mine , as a kind of well done to me. It is so beautifully made with such intricate detail.

Golden pineapple necklace - This was a birthday present! I just love how fun and tropical this is but still keeping the beautiful craftsmanship.

The Gold bee necklace  - This was my first piece, the necklace that started the obsession. It is beautiful and Whenever I wear it, which is almost daily I get lots of compliments on it.

Safari Midi rings* - Four little rings each with a different animal including a Lion , Buffalo, Antelope and Rhino- Super cute! and I cannot wait to stack these up on holiday.

Elephant ring - This is such a cute little ring , and goes so well with my other silver rings. Elephants have always been my favourite animal so I just had to snap this one up! It is also currently in the sale for only £20! 



So that is my current collection! that seems to be growing rapidly. I even know that my mum has bought me the Bee floral ring pendant that she is keeping back for my birthday in November! She had to tell me in case I went ahead and bought it myself.

The other pieces I have my eye on are the Wild strawberry stacking rings which I think will look so lovely paired with my silver bee and elephant ring! The more the better right?! The Silver Knot ringCherub ringElephant head ring - can you tell I like rings? If you do too you should check out the collection as lots of them are in the sale too! 



I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed writing and creating the photographs for, let me know what your favourite pieces are and if you own any of Bills jewellery already.






* All opinions are my own, this post was not sponsored but Bill Skinners team kindly sent me a couple of pieces. All of which have a * next to them. I love each and every piece and will enjoy wearing them.
