Cutey - review and giveaway

Some time ago I was contacted by Cutey, a jewelry brand from UK. They've just started so they asked me to review their bracelets. I was very happy to receive the Gaia and Eris charm bracelets. Let's have a closer look at them, shall we?

The Cutey bracelets are made by beads of different colours and shapes. Each piece of jewelry comes with several beads that can be easily added or removed, so it's like having different bracelets! How nice is that? The picture below shows the Gaia bracelet. It features pink, light green and silver beads; some of them look like made of Murano glass, which I really like. My favourite part of the bracelet is the multi-faceted pink bead. It has a regular clasp, a bit difficult to close with one hand! I always find that kind of clasp a bit uncomfortable; you always need an extra pair of hands to manage it, haha! It's very feminine and classy overall - I think I'm gonna wear it a lot.

The Cutey bracelets come in two different chain lengths, 20cm and 18cm. The 20cm one, Gaia, fitted my wrist perfectly, while Eris was a tiny bit too tight. Nothing too uncomfortable anyway.

This one is Eris. It features red toned beads and a large key charm. It's a bit less girly than the Gaia one. It has a different clasp from the Gaia that you can see better in the photo on the website here, which I find easier to close. It's a pretty little bracelet, but I think it'd look even nicer without the red beads! Or maybe even without all the beads, just with the key charm. I'm a minimalist when it comes to jewelry, haha! ;)

I love how with Cutey you can get cute bracelets without spending hundreds of euros on a Pandora. You get the same style but a much lower pice - only £12,99! The Cutey bracelets are pre-made now, but soon you'll be able to choose your own beads to create a personalized bracelet, just like with Pandora.

Another thing I like about Cutey is the names of the pieces of  jewelry! Tartarus, Pontus, Hemera, Moirae.. they all come from the Greek mythology.. I love that!

As you can see, they look lovely even worn together, but I'm going to part with Eris (which, by the way, is already sold out on their website.) Yes, I'm going to give it away! Just fill up the form below to win a Cutey bracelet :)

Franche Lippée

I just fell in love with the Japanese brand Franche Lippée. The style is 'Mori', which means romantic clothes in pastel colours. Lots of chiffon, lace and soft fabrics are used - how could I not love that?? Too bad I can't read what's on their site or find a trustworthy website that sells their clothes!

A Nica Christmas

Remember a few months ago, when I got my Nica satchel for my birthday? Now I've just received the Frankie Frame Grab I asked my parents for Christmas! Of course I ordered it one day and paid it €75, and the day after it was discounted at €35. *sigh* The discount is still on anyway, so hurry and treat yourself!

I love Nica bags. I discovered them earlier this year in the Oxford Circus Topshop in London and loved them at first sight. When I was thinking about what to ask for Christmas I immediately thought of a Nica bag! I really needed a bag for winter and I think this one is perfect. Black and gold basically go with everything I wear, and it's quite capacious as well.

I also got a lovely necklace for free! How can you not love Nica?

Florence Welch by Mario Testino - Vogue UK Dec. 2011

Lately I've been literally obsessing over Florence + The Machine. I know every single song of theirs by heart, and the singer Florence Welch is definitely one of my style icons. I absolutely adore her 'grown-up', more elegant style she adopted for her new album Ceremonials. She looks like a goddess to me and I think Mario Testino who did the photos below feels the same way too, haha!
