Get In The Arena

Jun 27, 2013

Lately I've heard friends who are striving
to do their best being criticized (by the very 
people that never put their heads about the parapet).

I've seen lovely blogging friends receive spiteful
and annoymous comments (funny how they
are always anonymous ;-)

I've seen loved ones trying their best and
still being criticized

Then this quote serendipitously appeared
(don't you love when that happens)

"It is not the critic that counts;
not the man who points out how
the strong man stumbles, or where the
doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is
actually in the arena, whose face is marred
by dust and sweat and blood; who strives
valiantly; who errs......(And) if he fails,
at least fails while daring greatly"

Anonymous comments?
Criticising those that are 
trying their hardest (be they friends, people
in caring professions etc)

Man, if you "ain't" even in the arena

getting your butt kicked on occasion
don't bother giving your view.
Your feedback doesn't count for anything!

To all those in the arena getting their butt kicked least you are
"daring greatly".

The Biggest in the World

Jun 12, 2013

This week saw the opening of the largest
CHANEL boutique in the world

Yes! it's here in my home town-London.

It's 3 storeys high and 12,600 square feet!

 The stats surprised me too as 
I thought the biggest had to be in Paris

The centre-piece is a HUGE sculpture 
inspired by Coco Chanel's pearls. It's made from
Venetian blown glass.
What do you think?

The boutique could easily be mistaken for a stately home.

No detail is left out which include; 
*lush tweed sofas

*hand stitched curtains with pearls
*gorgeous tweed chairs which line the hand-bag bar
*crystal chandeliers

*silk woven walls  supporting some of the
most expensive handbags in the world

Apparently the changing rooms are the epitome
of decadence (I like decadence ;-)

Chanel 2013

I am going to visit on Friday. I hope
it lives up to all the hype.

Happy Weekend Lovelies

Jubilant June

OK Lovelies. June arrived in the UK and what
FAB weather we are having. As I laze in the sun
all thoughts turn to the beach.

which contains a real pearl inside ;
you can choose between a white or grey pearl.
This will set off any summer outfit to perfection.
Chain length 76cm

Reserved for friends

OK glam-bunnies here's the deal. 
I made a limited number of the star-fish designs 
(which are also available in silver). 
They were supposed to remain "limited edition" pieces only. 
I then tweeted about it on Monday evening 
and put some pictures on my Facebook page and guess what? 
They were all sold out by Wednesday (didn't plan for that at all). 
So I am having to take -pre-orders whilst more pieces are made. 
As a "special"bonus if you pre-order your star-fish pieces 
this month I am offering 15% off the retail price (as a thank you). 
This offer will end on 31 June 2013.

Just drop me an e.mail at:  
and I will organise your discount. 

THANK YOU SO MUCH to all those that scooped 

up the new designs this week. 
They went so quickly 
I don't even have a set for myself yet 
(and my friends who had their eyes 
on them are now cursing me ;-)
