Well done if you identified last week's 'just for fun' guess the picture… it was a screw. Another at the end of this blog.
I was reminiscing over Easter and as a result I have a small confession to make to my sisters. It's over 25 years since I carried out the deed but I'm always reminded come Easter time!
I love Kinder Eggs! The chocolate, the surprise and they taste delicious!
Well, all those years ago (age 12..ish!) I spent my pocket money on Kinder Eggs for my two sisters. The eggs came in a box of three, which meant one for each of my two older sisters and a spare Kinder for me… perfect!
Well, I thought, how do I decide to choose which egg has the best surprise? It was a dilemma for a boy who hadn't even reached his teens yet. A plan was hatched. I very carefully unwrapped the eggs and prised open the chocolate to inspect each of the prizes. I chose my favourite, ate the chocolate and wrapped the other two back up! Well, I don't know about you but it's really tricky to re-wrap an egg in its foil wrapper without it looking like it's been unwrapped before! I failed miserably! They looked somewhat dishevelled! I think my sisters twigged but nothing was mentioned… I did spend my pocket money after all! But for what it's worth… sorry! Having written this I now really desire some chocolate… vending machine here I come!
A new month is almost upon us and here's a taster of our May Jewellery Icon before it goes to air. It will be available to order from 1st May. Veronese is a beautiful range of jewellery and simply whisks you away to Italy in a heartbeat. This bracelet is particularly clever with its concealed magnetic fastener making it so easy to pop on and take off. Gorgeous.
On the subject of jewellery… I'm thrilled to be launching the breathtaking Galileia kunzite and diamond ring TSV this Monday 28th at midnight, ready for Gem Day on Tuesday. Wow, we have the most beautiful line for you throughout the day including the finale with me at 10pm. We're really excited and hats off again to our buying team for collating such exquisite collections.
I'm also launching our Vax TSV the day before, this Sunday 27th at midnight. Well, I was given a sample to try. I went one step further than just clean our cream carpet… I got a little creative with some chocolate mouse!
