A Designer Dream

Sticking with the designer wish list post I did last week themed around workout wear, I thought I would do another designer related post but one that caters for everyone: Jewellery & Watches. My boyfriend is a huge fan of Breitling watches and as much as I wish I could afford to just surprise him with one, I definitely do not have the money for that sort of thing. I stumbled across Xupes while imagining what I would spend my money on if I won the lottery. Xupes is a site that sells stock at around 70% RRP and also sells items on behalf of customers for a commission. They have Second-hand Rolex’s, second-hand diamonds and even other watch brands like Breitling, Omega and Cartier.Here are my favourite picks from the site:

The Rolex Submariner – £19800.00 (I wish eh?)


Breitling Bentley Chronograph – £10950 (I’m sure my boyfriend would be happy if I bought this)


Jaeger-LeCoultre Vintage – £3750 (a gorgeous watch for the ladies)


Mappin & Webb diamond and Rose Quartz bracelet – £5995 (This is a thing of beauty, I’m in love with it)


As well as jewellery and watches, they also sell handbags, antiques and fine art. My favourite bargain handbag from the site is this gorgeous Celine Edge costing £1145. It’s super chic as well as being simple enough to go with any outfit for those keen to have a multi-purpose handbag for all occasions.


These are just a snippet of some of the gorgeous items on the site. If you can afford to treat yourself then I would definitely check it out. The picks I’ve chosen are some of the more expensive items on the site and there are a lot that are under £2k if you can afford to set that kind of money aside. I will keep holding out for my lottery win and then will be straight on the site. As well as jewellery and watches, they also sell handbags, antiques and fine art.

A while back I was browsing through twitter when I came across a tweet from the people at Free-jewellery.com to work with bloggers around their new site. I was really excited about this brand as I had seen their Twitter account actively talking about the launch of this fantastic site.

The company is exactly what it says on the tin. A free jewellery service for all of you accessory fans out there, the only cost to the customer being the postage which is very reasonable at:

P&P per item charged at UK = £3.99 Europe = £5.99 Rest of World = £7.99

The site launched on September 9th and as they want to share lots of beautiful pieces with us, they don’t have huge amounts of stock for a certain item; once it’s gone – it’s gone. Then a gorgeous new line of jewellery will appear in its place. I think the concept of the site is great and an affordable way of getting some new fashionable jewellery to wear whenever you want a change.


I received a few pieces from their site so that I could see the quality of the jewellery they offer. I have taken a few photos for you to see the quality yourself as well…

They have sooo many different pieces it’s pretty hard to choose from them all, but they are all good quality and don’t just fall apart when you get them out their wrappers. I would definitely purchase from this site in the future and would recommend them to anyone else as well. Check out free-jewellery.com for their latest beautiful pieces.

Buckley London Bracelet’s

The lovely people over at Buckley London gifted me some bracelets recently to enjoy and share with my lovely readers. I applied for the gift via Bloggers Love Hub and was over the moon when I received an email telling me I was fortunate enough to be picked. I picked a stack of bracelets as my gift and was very excited when my new wrist bling arrived.

I chose the Sparkle Mesh Bracelet’s which come in a stack of 3 for £24.99. Individually the price tag on each bracelet states £10.00 so the stack is an absolute bargain. Each bracelet has a slight stretch meaning you can get it on which is good because my first impression was “How am I going to put that on?” All 3 bracelet’s have a charm on them and I have to admit my favourite one is the Rose Gold bracelet. The charm on it is so pretty which makes it even more attractive. When all 3 are on though, the bracelets look so good together and I will definitely be wearing them day to day.
