Getting cosy with Snows Curiosities

I’m really excited to introduce you to a brand new start up business called snows curiosities. I was thrilled when I saw the designer Shana post online about her homemade bracelets and I want to thank her so much for sending me one to review. I did a photoshoot this weekend to show you all about how I am getting cosy with snows curiosities in my bedroom, and thought that my new sheets provided the perfect cosy Christmas setting for this post (as well as my Xmas jumper!).

Snows curiosities bracelets are a perfect gift to give as you can personalise them to say whatever you want. Of course I got one with my blog name ‘saharasplash’. The bracelets are made in Shana’s home in Kent from silver aluminium. The packaging is super cute and I loved the little bag and charm it came with.

As well as choosing whatever you’d like for the engravement, you can also choose the bracelet width. I loved shooting with the bracelet- the silver went so well with my grey Christmas jumper (from Amara Reya). Here are a few shots showing off my gorgeous new accessory:

Shana will be adding more to her collection very soon and you can get in touch with her on her Facebook page here to place your Xmas orders!
Each bracelet is just £10 which is a fab price for the quality and the personal touch you get with your bracelet. I hope you all will join me in supporting Shana with snows curiosities and get one this Christmas, for yourself or as a present too!

Why you should be wearing Apricot this Autumn

First things first, I must say a huge thank you to Gemma from Type the Hype. Type the hype is an online platform which helps bring bloggers and brands together, and I am so happy that I signed up and reached out to them a few weeks ago with the hope to work with Apricot clothing. Apricot are an exquisite brand that have a huge bespoke collection of clothes and accessories on their site. I’m here to post all about why you should be wearing Apricot this autumn and why it’s sometimes good to take a leaf out of your mother’s book!

I pitched the idea to Apricot that I would like to do a post involving my mother as I am always in her wardrobe sneaking things out from under her nose. I felt that Apricot’s style spoke out to the two of us and I wanted to see how we both would style up the same piece- so here’s what happened when they said yes…

I really took a shine to a lot of their seasonal jumpers while browsing through the site deciding what to choose for our photoshoot. In the end I picked out the grey ribbed marl asymmetric hem jumper for my mother and I to wear, and we had already purchased an identical jacket from Neon Rose (featured in my blog post here) just weeks beforehand- perfect timing! I also had to grab some of the bracelets on the site for our autumnal look too, check out Apricot’s jewellery here! The asymmetric jumper is right on trend with its lovely poloneck and mid-length sleeves.

I couldn’t wait for the package to arrive, so I chose next day delivery and waited patiently for the weekend to come when I would head on over to my hometown of Ipswich to open up the parcel and try everything on. Thankfully the weather was kind and so we decided to take a stroll down to Christchurch Park to do the filming and photos. The leaves were a radiant golden brown which offset our white and grey tones sublimely. I had my sister and resident fashion photographer take the lead on this one, she knows what she is doing and I trust that she knows what I am after too. We kept the theme of mothers and daughters throughout the process which I’m really thankful for. I have a strong home unit of females who I can always turn to, and so getting the opportunity to share my blogging with them made it a wonderful day and made for a great blog post!

My mother decided to wear the asymmetric jumper with white skinny jeans and some wedged boots. I decided to wear a grey knee length skirt and white sandals. We wore the same grey jacket and each had on an Apricot bracelet too which you can see worked wonderfully to bring our looks together. I was pleasantly surprised at how easily my mother took to the blogging lifestyle. She did not mind one bit as the passers by stopped to see what we were up to- we had a photographer (the sister) and videographer (the boyfriend) and an assistant (sister’s best friend) all around us as we linked arms and walked back and forth amongst the trees.

We absolutely loved shooting in the jumpers, so a huge thank you Apricot for collaborating with my mother and I on this- you should definitely be wanting to wear Apricot this autumn after checking out the final shots in the video below!
