Usually watching the news has an unfortunate habit of making me cry. I like to stay informed but with almost every story reported on filled with tragedy and disaster I tend to just feel angry, sad and helpless watching it so it's lovely to finally hear some good news for once!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed a baby girl into the world on Saturday who they have named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. I think Charlotte is a fabulous choice! Presumably the couple needed the thumbs up from the Queen when picking out their baby's name so it does look suspiciously like she has said Diana can be included if Elizabeth comes first!

I thought Kate looked stunning as she left the hospital. Yes, I know she has a team of stylists etc but it would have taken more than a hairdresser and makeup artist to make me look half way presentable after I'd given birth! As a mum of a boy (who was born in the month of July like George) and a girl (who celebrates her birthday in May like Charlotte) I feel grateful that I never got photographed leaving the hospital when I came home!

So, as we are specialists in luxury baby bracelets that are all fit for princesses we'd love to celebrate this historic week with 20% off all purchases made from Tilly & Tabitha until Saturday 9th May. You can still enjoy FREE delivery to any UK address as well as free personalisation and gift presentation too.

May is an important month for me because it's my daughter's birth month - this year she'll be turning SEVEN! I've no idea how that's even possible as she's still a baby in my eyes but there you go!

If you're lucky enough to be born in this beautiful spring month then your birthstone is Emerald. Emeralds are a rich opulent green coloured gemstone that just ooze sophistication.

At Tilly & Tabitha we represent May in our birthstone jewellery collection with Aurora Borealis Swarovski Emerald crystals (Aurora Borealis, or AB, is a posh term used by Swarovski to describe its sparkling appearance)

So, to compliment our gorgeous bracelets that work equally well as thoughtful birthday gifts and well earned treats for yourself, I've put together this gorgeous emerald inspired outfit idea.
