With the FIFA 2014 World Cup now well and truly underway I am already beginning to feel like a football widow.

I'm not the world's biggest football fan but I am definitely 100% supporting my country. A recent survey has revealed that only 4% of English fans named their own country when asked which team would win the Cup - that's a very depressing statistic!

I consider myself in the tiny 4% of fans who actually believe we can win this thing yet at the same time I am not prepared to sit through every match (pre match chat, half time chat and post match chat) and I'm still having trouble with the offside rule so I think I'll stick to showing my support through fashion!

I'm fairly certain I could recreate this look without too much trouble (even the nails on my right hand) Thank goodness the St George's Cross is such a simple design!

I actually love the World Cup Brazil emblem with its fabulous bright carnival colours so I'd be happy to have this case protecting my phone for the next few weeks.

Don't care if the World Cup's on or not - this t-shirt is fantastic, I'd wear it any time of the year!

And of course we can't forget this England inspired charm bracelet from Tilly & Tabitha which can be found here in our eBay shop.



It is such an honor to be asked to be a godparent. A christening is a very important day in a child's life and as a godparent you'll naturally want to give them an extra special gift.

At Tilly & Tabitha we have a gorgeous collection of jewellery that is designed especially for godchildren of any age from babies to teens. We have designs that can even be personalised with the child’s name and made to fit exactly meaning you can give a truly unique gift that can also be a treasured keepsake for years to come.

Now we are finally into the summer months it's time to start thinking about summer jewellery...

One thing we tend to forget about over the winter months is our feet and only when the sun comes out do we remember they are there!

First it's time to find a good nail polish for the toes... I LOVE the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine collection - beautiful glossy colours and virtually chip proof. Here are some of my favourites:
Prickly Pear, Satsuma, Mango and Dragon

Next it's time to hunt down the perfect pair of flip flops. I like a wedge flip flop personally as I'm a bit "vertically challenged" so I'm particularly liking these beauties:

 Once you have the sandals and toe nails covered don't forget to finish the look with a pretty anklet...

These lovely anklets can all be found at the Tilly & Tabitha eBay shop plus many other styles are available too. And finally if your feet are suffering and need some TLC to get them ready for the summer then pop along to BodiKind in Crawley Down to get them sorted once and for all!


Men of the world rejoice - buying jewellery just got a lot easier!

Does buying something sparkly leave you in a cold sweat? Have you endured the pressures of choosing the perfect gift? Do you find it tricky to tell the difference between a bracelet and a bangle?

On the face of it, any item of jewellery that nestles within an impressive gift box should be enough to charm anyone but it’s never that simple. Whether it’s for a birthday, anniversary or an apology, confused by the many colours and styles, there’s a fear that whatever you choose will be met with a smile and the knowledge that the trinket will find its home at the back of a drawer.

For this very reason, it’s fantastic news that Tilly & Tabitha is now selling gift vouchers. Mankind can let out a collective sigh of relieve in the knowledge there no longer needs to be any painful deliberation or unintentional disappointment for loved ones.

A thoughtful voucher allows them to choose the perfect gift themselves.

Various denominations are now available to suit all budgets, ranging from £5-25. Simply click the link below and pay securely via PayPal. What’s more, vouchers can be mailed or sent electronically.

Come on guys, what you waiting for?!? Take a look at the Tilly & Tabitha store.

As the owner of Tilly & Tabitha I always have an eye out for other local small businesses that offer really unique and well made products as I understand how much work and dedication goes into what they do. When you buy from a small company you know you are getting so much more than a factory made, mass produced generic item but instead you are getting something that is much more personal and finished to a much higher standard.


For example if you are in the market for a really special one-off cake then I have to recommend Little Cakey who are based in West Sussex. I have been lucky enough to try some of these gorgeous creations and not only are they beautifully made with the most amazing attention to detail but they are also DELICIOUS!


Here's some of my favourites:

I am completely loving and embracing the Spring/Summer 2014 denim trend.
So easy to dress up or down for almost any occasion, this laid-back fashion suits me down to the ground!
 
Here's some of my top denim picks...

This gorgeous cropped jacket from Oasis in a smart dark denim is perfect for the in-between weather... looks great with a casual summer dress when it's just a bit too chilly to wear on its own!

A great way to combine smart and casual is with this lovely dress from Phase Eight - would look amazing dressed up with chunky statement jewellery.

Or what about these ankle grazer jeans from Matalan? I'm not usually one for patterned denim but I actually really love this Aztec print.
