Prime Ministerial Favourites: Mirta Bijoux

23.4.19


We all know that the Prime Minister loves an oversized necklace, and perhaps her ultimate favourite is the Ballsmania collection from Mirta Bijoux.


When she came to office, the PM had one navy Ballsmania necklace. She wore it frequently with a sky blue coat from Hobbs and a navy shift dress - the perfect pairing! Since then, her collection has grown - and we've counted another 7 additions to the mix.

From classic black to a standout metallic blue, the Ballsmania necklaces (and bracelets!) are providing a welcome pop of colour and sass to May's outfits. And at a time where every discussion seems to be on Brexit, it's a welcome distraction to chat about some serious accessorising from the Prime Minister.



So what's cool about these particular necklaces? The versatility of these pieces are what first struck me. We've seen the PM wear hers in the Commons Chamber and when out and about in her Maidenhead constituency - as well as when visiting countries as part of her official duties. They look great with a formal dress and also paired with a casual tee shirt and jeans.

There are 100 colour combinations in the collection to try, and each item is handmade to the highest standards using non toxic colours and no nickel.




Politics doesn't have to be all about policy, and with voters wanting to understand the personal behind the public face, fashion is a great way to tell that story. May has embraced this, and despite being a private person, uses her great sense of style to show that she likes to have fun with what she wears. Her quirky taste in jewellery is just one way she does this, and her Mirta pieces are some of our personal favourites.

Whether it's a fantastic coat, sassy shoes or some really cool jewellery- May knows how to make an impression!

Which are your favourite Mirta Bijoux Ballsmania items? Let me know in the comments. And a big thank you to Mirta Bijoux for sending me two of the Ballsmania items to try and style!


A comfy night's sleep with Bedsure

22.4.19


There's nothing quite like a good night's sleep, and with life going at 200 miles an hour, I'm a girl who needs her nap time. I don't get as much sleep as I would like, and am always looking for tips, tricks- and comfy bedding that will help me get the rest I need.

I recently discovered Bedsure, a premium bedding and home solutions brand that creates products with smart technology that help its customers live a healthier life.


I find it difficult to get comfortable, and have been on the search for the ideal pillow for many years. Bedsure's Bio-Zero pillow provides support for side sleepers like myself, with contours that support the neck and head. The memory foam is completely breathable, and the cotton construction is machine washable. Topped with a satin pillowcase (for a little touch of luxury,) I had a great night's sleep compared to the usual pillow.


I was also interested to try a new blanket. Having heard good things about weighted blankets, (help to make you wake up more rested, echoing the feeling of 'earthing') I was eager to try out Bedsure's version. Filled with glass beads and micofiber, the 100% cotton blanket was soft and secure, and it didn't feel like I couldn't escape! I woke up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day - definitely a feeling I hadn't experienced for quite a while. And the grey version fits perfectly with my neutral bedroom decor too.

Making the switch to a contour Bio-Zero pillow and the weighted blanket has helped me to get on top of a good night's sleep in a short time span.

I've teamed up with Bedsure to help you get restful zzz's too! Score 20% off the Bio-Zero pillow with code BIOZLAUD and 30% off the weighted blanket with code WEITLAUD.

Thanks to Bedsure for the two products to review.

Easter Break: Theresa May's Week

19.4.19

Parliament has been in recess this week, and the PM had a much deserved Easter break in North Wales.

Not too many pictures, but some lucky walkers bumped into May on Snowdonia.


May and her husband also marshalled the Maidenhead 10 and took in a bit of canvassing too! 



The PM is wearing two Herno jackets in the last photo - and some leopard print sneakers.
