Are you a Dream Catcher?

If I ask you, what is your dream? What is the first thing that pops into your mind? For me, its to travel the world, to see all the beauty god has created and to bask myself in his glory. Whether I will ever be able to do that, is a different thing all together!  Too often we get weighed down by what society, or our family and friends, tell us will make us happy - we have an ideal life in our minds that we feel we must achieve. And yet, how often do we listen to our own hearts? I read an amazing book last summer called The Alchemist - and without giving away too much, the bulk of it talked about how everyone has a dream - but for most of us, we all wander through life being held down by one thing or another and those dreams.. well they just remain dreams… (I defo recommend adding the book to your summer reads!).

So if I have one piece of advise for you my loves which I want you to hold close to you, it is to never stop dreaming and never stop working towards those dreams.. Because sometimes, your happiness lies in the struggle to achieve the dream, and not the dream itself... 

Thats why I am so happy to share with you today, my collaboration with Links of London on their new dream catcher bracelet. For me, a sure sign as to why you should never stop dreaming and perfectly symbolic (this time last year I would never have guessed that in a years time I would have the opportunity to work with such big brands!). The pendent on this *Silver Dream Catcher Bracelet is a reninterpreation of the classic Native American Indian symbol of protection - and it really does feel like the dreams I've caught are protected inside this sterling silver web. The bracelet is an elegant double diamond-cut glitter wire which brings the whole piece together.  Perfect when worn on its own or together with other bracelets in the Links of London collection, this new addition is a sparkling way to bring to life those treasured images.

Now go catch your dreams...

Why classic watches really are timeless..

So recently I had the opportunity to work with DKNY watches courtesy of *House of Watches.  Now if you all know my style, I like big and bling - but summer time calls for more simple understated jewellery. Pieces that compliment the outfit rather than steal the limelight. Watches can be timeless pieces, if you pick the right one - I always find myself choosing pieces which I know will work with a number of pieces in my wardrobe and something that I will be able to style for a multitude of occasions. Thats why I opted for this DKNY Ladies Stanhope Watch - a beautiful white leather strap watch paired with rose gold detailing - the size of the watch is elegant and dainty - yet pretty enough to attract the eye. 

Watches is they can tell a story, and by picking a classic piece, you can tell a different story over and over again. What I love most about this piece is that its difficult to define what "time era" it should belong to - the simplicity of the design, the elegance of the complimenting white and rose colours and the traditionalism of the leather strap and circle dial mean that this could belong to an era that existed even before I did! And vice versa, because of its timeless nature I know it will still look classy and elegant in the many years to come (insha allah!).

I prefer leather watches in the warmer weather, (and for reasons!), they’re lighter to wear and you don't feel like you're walking around with a tonne on your arm! This watch would make the perfect Eid present for someone you love - or even a little treat for yourself! You can fine more details here.. www.houseofwatches.co.uk/dkny
