Valentines Day can be difficult when it comes to finding that perfect present. Red roses and a card are a little out dated, while some find that a simple ‘I love you’ is enough for them on the most romantic day of the year. But one gift that will never let you down is the perfect piece of jewellery, whether that be a classic silver bracelet, a beautiful pair of stud earrings or a timeless necklace.
Hazel and Kent have an amazing array of sparkling jewellery to choose from, with lots of wonderful pieces that will look perfect with your fresh, spring wardrobe. With prices ranging from £8-£230, there’s something for everyone with stylish accessories and dozens of great brands to choose from, including Guess, Fiorelli and Espirit. We’ve picked out some of our favourite pieces and how to style them for the new season.
Every girl should own a pair of special earrings which go perfectly with any outfit. There are plenty to choose from on the Hazel and Kent website, with varying colours, shapes and sizes. The silver and gold Daisy earrings are a great option to go with a pretty floral dress, or for something more dressy try the stunning Kit Heath for a more glamorous look if you’re heading out for a romantic meal on Valentines.
I love the Topaz Silver Round studs, a bargain for only £12.50. These sparkly jems are easy for work paired with a smart black suit and will see you through to evening too, such is their simple shape and design. And, they sparkly beautifully too! Check out the photos below of me modelling my Topaz earrings.
Rings are a huge spring trend, with the likes of Kylie Jenner and Chrissy Teigan favouring the stack ring look. For a more artsy style, look no further than the Pasha silver plated ring in the abstract shape of a 3D circle or for that extra special piece, the violet Baccaret flower ring is a wonderful, at £210. We couldn’t help but fall in love with Hazel and Kent’s beautiful selection of necklaces too, with the trendy DKNY stainless steel ring necklace a particular favourite. (Look to the catwalks of Lanvin and Saint Laurent in regard to how to wear statement jewellery this season – bold and chunky basically.)
If you’re still struggling with gift ideas, than there’s always the old pearl favourite. Pearls have long been associated with a certain effortless style, and are usually a sentimental heirloom piece, much loved by the likes of Coco Chanel and Elizabeth Taylor. Hazel and Kent have the perfect necklace, in the shape of the simple Perlissimo freshwater heart necklace. Sweet and stylish, this show stopping item will be sure to get heads turning when worn with a LBD or dressed down with a cashmere jumper and tailored trousers.
So there you have it. This year, there’s no excuse not to find that ideal present for that special someone on Valentines Day.

Now we are in that magical but cold season we all need to keep warm while we are visiting Christmas fairs/markets or you’re out doing early or last minute Christmas shopping.
We all love making lists. Whether it’s the weekly food shop or things to do on your day off - there is something very organised and efficient about setting yourself a good tick list. Well, fashion site Lyst, does exactly that, creating your own personal shopping experience.
The exciting website, www.lyst.co.uk allows you to shop for the latest trends from a variety of brands and stores, including everything from luxury designers Fendi and Stella McCartney to high street retailers Zara and Vans, and then create your own Lyst of items you’re lusting over. Browse through beautiful pieces from Rag & Bone, Michael Kors, Converse and Asos to name just a few, and add them to your own personalised ‘lysts,’ which are helpfully organised into different sections such as ‘wish list wardrobe,’ ‘gifts for me,’ and ‘gift lyst.’ Essentially, Lyst is a more ordered way to shop online, without any hassle.
As Christmas approaches, why not create your own Lyst on all things festive and fun for your winter wardrobe or how about the lovely, tan leather boots that are such a big thing this autumn. Group your favourite styles together and create whole looks by adding clothing, shoes, accessories and jewellery to find your perfect wish Lyst pieces in a variety of sizes and colours.
One of the biggest trends for autumn/winter 2015 is the ‘Ghillie’. You might not have heard of it, but you have definitely seen it before and you might possibly own a pair already. The ghillie is a type of shoe which laces up at the front, with no tongue originating from Scottish country dancing. Everyone from the Duke of Windsor, who was often seen sporting a pair of ghillies with argyle socks in the 1920’s to Naomi Campbell, who infamously wore purple wedge ghillies on the Vivienne Westwood catwalk where she took a tumble in 1993, have been seen wearing them. And on Lyst, you too can jump onto the band wagon and put a fashionable foot forward yourself, with current designers Isabel Marant and Aquazzura offering up some great styles.
Other great footwear available on the Lyst website are minimalist sneakers, functional flats, cosy boots and glamorous heels, which once added to your Lyst can be worked with other items you think will go nicely with your current wardrobe. It’s fun, free and very organised so start making your fashion shopping list today with Lyst.
Below are a couple of Lysts we put together on key Autumn fashion pieces and Halloween attire:
