5 Gorgeous Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

Time to buck up your ideas – Mother’s Day (11th March 2018, fyi) is almost here, meaning it’s time to show your number one babe how much you care. So whether you’re treating your mum (or honorary mum), aunt or gran, here are five gorgeous gift ideas for Mother’s Day, guaranteed to get her gushing about you to all her pals. Brownie points, incoming.


1. Beaut Bags

Shop Bags >

A gal can never have too many bags – and that obvs goes for mums too. Keep her collection topped up with pastel-coloured picks in sweet-as pink, powder blue or soft vanilla, or get her in the swing of spring (it’s coming, we promise) with bloom-covered bags that are sure to give her all the sunny-day feels.

2. Swoon-Worthy Watches

Shop Watches >

Not gonna lie, we wouldn’t know where we’d be without the time-keeping abilities of our mums. To say thanks for getting us EVERYWHERE on time, we think a fancy new watch makes an ideal gift – choose from rose gold, floral and pretty pastel designs, presented in swish ‘lil gift boxes. Win-win.

3. Swish Scarves

Shop Scarves >

Mums + scarves = a match made in heaven. This Mother’s Day, swap out her thick winter knits something more spring-like – we’re talking modern floral prints on pure silks and soft weaves, and cool clashes of pink and red (so Insta-worthy) that’ll have her set for the new season.

4. Pretty Purses

Shop Purses & Wallets >

If you’re looking for a gift that’s small but sweet, then a shiny new purse is the perfect choice of gift. Take your pick from bold beauts sorbet styles and floral-print pieces that are both mega-chic and practical, and – if you’re feeling flush – add on a cute travelcard holder for good measure.

5. Delicate Jewellery

Shop Z for Accessorize >

When it comes to Mother’s Day gifts, jewellery is all-round winner – especially if it’s something that she can keep (and wear) forever. Go for rose gold and gold-plated pieces in delicate designs, embellished with semi-precious stones and cubic zirconia sparkles that feel that extra bit spesh.

5 Celebrity Looks to Steal for Prom

Calling the class of 2018 – get prepped for the biggest night of the year with the five celebrity-inspired looks to steal for prom, with red carpet-worthy inspo from the likes of Alexa Chung, Lupita Nyong’o and Perrie Edwards. It’s time to go glam.


1. Alexa Chung


If the thought of wearing hair clips conjures up flashbacks of primary school discos then rest assured that 2k18’s remakes are anything but cringe. Case in point? Alexa Chung. The model, designer and all-round ‘it’ girl showed us how to make classic look cool with pearl-topped slides worn with vintage waves, complementing her cream-coloured dress (that collar though) to absolute perfection.

2. Lupita Nyong’o


Long live the statement earring. Making the simplest ‘fits look more than mega, these stand-out styles promise to the biz for big-deal occasions too – and Lupita Nyong’o knows it. The actress rocked the red carpet with a statement silver pair, kept in full focus with a high-neck gown (Ellie Saab, we heart you) and a sleek ‘lil up-do. Prom night perfection.

3. Perrie Edwards


If the prom dress of your dreams comes with a plunging neckline, then a dainty layered necklace is the only way to accessorise. Giving us all the ethereal feels, singer Perrie Edwards proved our point with luxe gold chains worn with a floor-sweeping style in all-glam white – the dreamiest look for starry nights.

4. Margot Robbie


Need to give your prom night get-up an extra hit of glam? Enter the metallics.  Take tips from actress Margot Robbie with a cute clutch bag in high-shine silver, styled with a blush pink dress with feathers and shimmering sparkles that feel so right for the dance floor.

5. Rita Ora


Now, we wouldn’t usually say that that arm candy is any kinda prom night essential (mates before dates and all that) but we *have* to make an exception for this. Keeping it extra in a fancy feathered ballgown, singer Rita Ora made us crush hard with a stack of statement bracelets that sparkled like woah, giving her look all the prom princess feels.

How to look fabulous this Easter break

We’re not just all about the chocolate and egg rolling this Easter. It’s a time to switch it up your Easter style and shine with our spring and summer essentials. From springtime accessories to the perfect statement bag, here are our top picks to leave you looking fabulous this Easter break.


The flower jewellery

For true Easter style, bring out the blooms. Take inspo from the budding daffs by pairing a delicate daisy necklace with matching earrings to evoke sunny days in the park, while a bold statement flower necklace looks beyond spring to balmy summer nights. Tassel earrings in light pastel shades let you shine bright on Easter days and nights out, feel as fresh as spring, even when the weather won’t cooperate.



The lightweight throw over

What’s sweeter than swapping woolly winter scarves for their lightweight pals? Not much. A classic silk number is bang on trend, and you can channel the Easter spirit with pastel bloom prints or soft ombre shades for a gentle nod to this spring’s look. Want to bring the glam? A gold or silver foil scarf gives proper cool points and means you’ll feel like a winner wherever you go.



The statement bag

Get your Mary Poppins on with an oversized bag. Large enough for your essentials (and more), a leather-look tote in pale tones packs a serious style punch, while remaining practical enough for Easter weekend picnics. Feeling contradictory? Swing all the way in the opposite direction with teeny tiny circle bags in shades as sweet as candy, while our cross-body numbers will mean you’re on trend, for a too-cool-for-school vibe try ours handy backpack that evokes nostalgic 90s vibes.



The fun accessories

Give Easter a shout with some cute themed accessories. Let your feet do the talking with some fun and fluffy socks featuring the stars of the show: frolicking lambs and bunnies. If that’s not your style, let floral trend blossoms over all the important parts of your life, from makeup bags to wallets, our new nature-influenced diary means you’ll stay organised and stylish: a winning combination.




The cool kids

The little ones deserve a fab new Easter look as well too. Whether it’s a candy-striped sequin bunny T-shirt to get them primed for their chocolate delivery, or a pack of click clack hair clips featuring rabbits, butterflies and flowers, there’s style for days this Easter. Our spring-inspired skipping rope will give excited Easter chicks a way of burning off the energy, while a bunny hair band completes the Easter morning look with a hint of cheekiness and maximum fun.



4 Exclusive Floral Accessories to Crush On

Now that it’s almost spring (sunshine, we’re ready), the high street is full of florals for our petal-picking pleasure. And while we’re definitely spoilt for choice, we have found ourselves wishing for something a little more different to the status quo – and that’s where the Bloomsbury print comes in. Painted by hand by our mega-talented designers right here in our London studio, these v exclusive (and oh-so-dreamy) florals are blooming across this season’s styles, perking up our wardrobes with an instant hit of pretty.  Here are our floral faves.




1. The Handheld Bag


Hey, lady – handheld bags are big this spring, with fancy floral patterns giving them all the prim-and-proper feels. Featuring a structured silhouette with hand-painted blooms, this mini must-have will add extra polish to all your get-ups, from tea dresses to casj tees-and-jean combos.


2. The Backpack


There’s something about a bloom-covered backpack that feels super spring-like, and we think this cute little number is sure to stand out amongst the season’s pastel palettes. Minimal and modern with a stand-out feel, this printed pick will spruce up your new season ‘fits with zero effort – even if you’re still having to wear your winter coat (spring, where you at?).


3. The Cross-Body Bag


We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – the cross-body bag is the ultimate 24/7 hero. Bring it into your spring style agenda with this floral-print fave, designed with multiple mini pockets and a chain-detail shoulder strap that lets you go hands-free – meaning you won’t ever be going quiet on the group chat again.


4. The Scarf


Cold-weather knits, be gone. As we move into spring, it’s all about lightweight layers and blooming florals – and thankfully, this babe of a scarf ticks both boxes. Throw it on over tees and oversized denim jackets for fresh weekend vibes, tying it onto the handle of your tote when it’s back to the daily grind.

From saddle styles to bumbags (not even joking), here are the five day bag styles to get your hands on right now.

Need to update your collection? Go for structured styles with high-shine chain straps, with metallics, neutrals and bold colours up for grabs.

Made from swish suede, these AM-to-PM picks can be worn as a cross-body bag by day, before doubling up as cute clutch by night. Magic.


3. The Circle Bag


Circle bags have got us in a spin for SS18, with rounded designs making themselves known as the new minimalist heroes. Bring ‘em into your work-to-weekend vibe with leather and suede styles that you’ll be wearing forevs, or start your spring off right with colour-block cuties in powder blue.

4. The Bumbag


Even if you’re convinced that bumbags never should’ve left the 90s, we have a sneaky feeling that this season’s styles might just change your mind. Made from luxe leather in metallic grey and black, these mini must-haves are the outfit extras that’ll rack up your Insta likes like woah.
