Acdria jewellery is all inspired by nature. It is designed and handmade in England. The pieces I am sharing with you today are from the planets range. I personally love anything designed around stars, planets the galaxy etc so this whole range really caught my eye. They also have a beautiful range of butterfly designs which I think is absolutely stunning.

Earth necklace

Jupiter necklace

Moon necklace

Saturn necklace

They are so reasonably priced at £15 each and you can get the cutest earrings to match too. I love how they can look different depending on the background, if they are on your bare skin or if they are on a black t shirt or white t shirt. When you look up close you see the true beauty of each piece.

Do you like jewellery things like this?

The company also does bespoke things too if you had something in mind!

I have put together a few ideas for Christmas gifts this year in the following categories: Clothing, Homeware and Entertainment

CLOTHING

Dobell shirt

£24.99

Dobell are such a good menswear brand. Their products are high quality but at an affordable price. My husband has had quite a few products from them before including a suit and bow tie and a set of cuff links. This shirt is a great price considering the quality of it. I love the stripe design and this would be great for any man in your life whether they are your partner/dad/son/brother or a friend. Their clothing is true to size.

*******************************************************************

Statement made necklace

Pricing depends on product/personalisation.

Statement made jewellery have some really beautiful pieces. They can add personalistion to their products, I have my husbands initial N on this necklace. They are such great quality at an affordable price and they really do have something for everyone.  The also have just released a range of Christmas ornaments.

*******************************************************************

B.Tempted knickers

From £8 depending on colour/style

I personally love new pjs or underwear for Christmas. Knicker Locker have such a fab range of both, as well as swimwear and things for men. These particular knickers are by the brand B.Tempted and they are so soft and comfortable. Often lace underwear can be slightly uncomfortable but these ones are so soft! The fit is good and I opted for a Small, I am a UK 8/10 usually.

*******************************************************************

HOMEWARE

Amphora Aromatics Mulled pear candle

£9.50

This time of year, I love candles. Amphora Aromatics have a beautiful mulled pear and spices candle. I have previously mentioned their Lavender one which is one of my favourite candles. Each candle can burn for up to 40 hours which is great if you only light it for half an hour at a time. The scent is quite strong but not too overpowering and the mulled pear really reminds me of Christmas. I like the neutral colour of the jar meaning it can look good in any room, no matter the decor.

*******************************************************************

Personalised baubles

£7.99 each

I love personalised presents, I think it is a great way to show someone you have really thought about a gift. This year we bought our first Christmas tree, we previously had my parents old one and some of their decorations but we decided it was time to get our own and all new decorations. I wanted some special baubles to get for my husband. Funky Pigeon have so many personalised items but I opted for the photo baubles where you can upload any photo you wish and add words to them so of course, I got ones of of cats! They are such great quality and will look great on the tree.

*******************************************************************

Personalised stocking tree decoration

£16.50

Another great addition to a tree is a personalised decorated stocking. I am really impressed with the quality of this and love how cute the little heads are and how neatly our names are written. You can get lots of decorations from Made with love and sparkle and you can personalise them with peoples name, whether it is for a couple, a whole family or if you want your pets names on! I wanted to just have it for Nick and myself. I think it looks super cute and would be a great gift for anyone especially if it was a first christmas in a new home or with a new member of the family etc.

*******************************************************************

Warmies heatable soft toy

£14.99

Hot Water Bottle shop not only supply a massive range of standard hot water bottle covers, they also supply these cute heatabale soft toys. You put them in the microwave for two minutes to heat them up and then they are so warm and smell amazing as they have lavender in. This is perfect for adults or children to cuddle with or take to bed in the winter. In the summer you can even out it in the freezer! Lavender is my favourite scent and is so calming so this is ideal if you aren’t feeling very well to use instead of a hot water bottle.

*******************************************************************

Entertainment

Pitch Perfect: 3-Movie Boxset

You can get some great boxsets on Amazon from £6, some of the most popular ones are:

Movie boxsets:
>  *   Fast & Furious 8-Film Collection (DVD £24.99, Amazon)
>  *   Transformers: 5-Movie Collection (DVD £19.34, Amazon)
>  *   Pitch Perfect: 3-Movie Boxset (DVD £6.99, Blu-ray £18.00, Amazon)
>  *   Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures (Blu-ray £17.99, Amazon)
>  *   Fifty Shades: 3-Movie Boxset (DVD £11.99, Blu-ray £14.99, Amazon)
>  *   The Godfather Trilogy: The Coppola Restoration (Blu-ray £14.99, Amazon)

I personally love pitch perfect and plan to spend a Sunday binge watching all three films in a row. It is great value to buy DVDs as a box set if you want to watch more than one of them.

*******************************************************************

Fanatic football gift box

£45

Fanatic create these fab football gift boxes. You can select the box depending on what team you support and you can select if it is for an adult or child. They will also ask your clothing size. I received a sample box to review but if you were to buy one you would receive 5/6 items based on the selected team. My box featured a hat, bottle opener and socks. These are the kind of things they would feature, as well as tshirts, a mug, a calendar and various other products. I think this would be a great gift for a football fan and they have a great range of teams on there. I had to pick Arsenal obviously 🙂

I hope I have given you some ideas 🙂

Does anyone else put their PJs on as soon as they get in from work? If I have no plans to leave the house again then this is exactly what I am like. I spend 99% of my time in the house wearing my PJs. What is the point being fully dressed if no one is going to see you?!

This is my way of justifying buying 25 million pairs of PJ haha. I had seen a few people online talk about Hunkemoller and their PJs just looked so cute and comfy, I had to get a pair!

I went for the Jersey Lace set in a Small (UK 8/10).The set has long trousers and a long top which is great for this time of year. I quite like long tops int eh winter but often find winter PJs too hot if they are like that fleece material. These are very soft and comfortable to wear. They also arrived in the post really quickly.

The sizing is spot on and I really like the material, it isn’t too think but thick enough that you feel comfortable not wearing a vest or something underneath.

I like that the design is only on the bottoms, I feel if the top had this as well it would be a bit busy. Grey is one of my favorite colours for loungewear and you can also mix and match them with other PJs if you wanted.

I had a look on their website and they also do a great range of underwear too which is worth checking out 🙂

I recently came across a brand called OppoSuits and they have such an amazing range of christmas suits for both men and women. You can go for something simple or something a bit different. I chose the Lumberjackie as I love tartan print, it is so fashionable right now and it really does remind me of christmas.

It arrived really well packaged in a box and had instructions on how to wash it. i was really impressed with the price and the quality. This particular one was about £55.

They have so many great options for men too, I love the one that looks like it is covered in $ bills. Really funky if you have an event you want to wear something snazzy to.

JACKET

  • 1 Inside pocket
  • Back slit
  • Front flap pockets
  • Fully lined
  • Padded Shoulders

SKIRT

  • Back slit
  • Button and zipper closure
  • Elastic side panels for a custom fit
  • Fully lined

FABRIC & CARE

  • Iron at low temperature
  • Machine Washable
  • Open woven fabric

I went for a size 10 as it comes as a suit the jacket and skirt are both the same size. I usually wear a 10 jacket and an 8/10 skirt so this was a perfect fit. Teamed with a plain black t shirt I think it looked really cool!

Would you wear a two piece suit? Would you go for something more plain or more daring?

I recently got a pair or new trousers to wear in the nice weather from Hippie pants. You can also wear them as a jumpsuit which I think is great!

I love how comfortable they are and the great thing is that they are stretchy and they are one size so will fit most people. They also do a plus size version which I think is great so they cater to a more variety of sizes.

The standard ones:

Size: One size fits most

Waist: 24 to 41 inches (61 to 106 cm)

Length: 41 inches (104 cm)
Plus size:
Size: One size fits all
Waist: 41 to 56 inches (104 to 142 cm)
Length: 40 inches (102 cm)

The ones I got can be found here. I really love the colours and the pattern. They are such good quality and really cooling to wear.

Would you ever wear something like this that can be worn in different ways? Reminds me a bit of those tube scarfs you can wear about ten different ways!
