Karen's Spring Favourites

Karens Basket1

Spring has seen the arrival of lots of new and exciting loveliness!

We asked Karen what her favourite’s are at the moment…


Karen’s Top 3 Picks for Spring


Positivity Bottles

These are so cute and make a fabulous gift! They’re a sweet little glass bottle with a cork bung and a tag tied on with a ribbon. There’s also a hanging ribbon so it can be hung next to a bed or desk to keep it close by. Inside each bottle, there is a special message to give someone a lift just when they need it. There are several messages to choose from so you can pick the perfect one. My favourite is “She believed she could… so she did! x” The whole thing is then placed in a little hessian gift bag so it can be kept secret and safe until it needs to be read again.

Anna Roebuck Etched Jewellery

We have a range of earrings, necklaces and rings in store which are all designed and made by artist Anna Roebuck, who’s based in nearby Burton upon Trent. They are all made from aluminium – delicate nature designs have been etched into each piece. They’re all gorgeous but my particular favourites are the triangular drop earrings with a seed heads design etched into it. They’re so pretty and elegant. Strikingly simple and would complete any outfit! I’m leaving hints for my husband… 😉


Bath Bomb & Chocolate

My last top pick is a combination of two items. We have some divine smelling bath bombs, my favourite is the Rose and French Clay fragrance. As well as it’s lush perfume, it has shredded rose petals on the top, these look so pretty floating in the bath. The Salty Millionaire Choco Loco chocolate bar is the perfect self indulgent companion! Lovely to give as a little treat gift – it won’t break the bank if you need a little treat too!


Please note the positivity bottles and Anna Roebuck jewellery is only currently available to purchase in store. If you would like to see photos of the designs and style we have available, please contact us on [email protected]
