Hello! Happy November to you!


Wow… it’s been really cold these last few days hasn’t it!? The evenings have been especially cold here in London. What has it been like where you are? I think we were so spoilt by the amazing summer and now that winter has arrived these plummeting temperatures have come as a bit of a shock! Well if you need to stay warm and toasty then do check out our range of Cozee Home! Lots of choice and some brilliant gift ideas too.

So how was your Halloween? We are so lucky to have the most wonderful neighbours. They’re excellent bakers and often spoil us with biscuits and cakes! They’ve become firm friends and they adore our Cairn Terriers which is fabulous because they can be so mischievous (our dogs that is!) and have been known to try and dig their way into our neighbours’ garden!

Well, our neighbours’ talents this week went to a whole new level! They made us an amazing pumpkin for Halloween featuring our two Cairns. It’s fantastic and took pride of place in our home. Thank you! We love it!

So November has landed which means it’s time to celebrate the birthstone for this month which is glorious Topaz.

It’s another gem which has been celebrated for generations, in fact treasured for over 2000 years. The name Topaz comes from the Greek island Tapazios in the Red Sea. The island is now called St. John’s Island.

Here are a few stunning designs which have caught our attention…

Firstly, a beautiful sterling silver ring in yellow gold vermeil. The centre stone is octagon cut blue topaz with round white topaz set perfectly in each shoulder.

This design is fantastic value for money. The blue topaz half eternity ring in sterling silver featuring white topaz as well. A gorgeous piece and perfect to wear along side your wedding band perhaps?

Finally, the London blue topaz halo ring in 9ct white gold… simply breathtaking! The oval cut stone measures 12mm by 10mm and is framed with white zircon. The bright white metal teamed with zircon sets of the blue beautifully.

So much choice and of course your money back guarantee for Christmas presents is extended to the 25th January 2019!

Happy shopping!!

See you soon,

Charlie x

    I agree about the weather we have had the heating on . Far to early for us, normally we use our Slankets. By
