Today's Song! Birdy - Skinny Love

This song came on the radio today and I fell in love with it! I was feeling really stressed and it instantly relaxed me. Have a listen below and leave a comment to tell us what you think!

Birdy is rather pretty too, in a very natural way, don't you think?

Caritaz - Jewellery With A Conscience

I've recently discovered a great jewellery brand called Caritaz which is 'the Generous Jewellery Company that loves to give back'.

The concept is simple - each product is designed for a particular charity and a portion of the profits from the sale of each item will be donated to said charity.

With their Charity aimed products you can give to a well-deserved trust and, at the same time, add a beautiful piece of Jewellery to your collection.

One set of items I particularly like are their 'Charity Charmz' which can be added to any of the Jewellery lines from PANDORA, Troll, Lovelinks, Truth, Chamila and Petite among others.

Each charm is made from Swarovski crystals that represent each charity in a different colour, such as pink for Breast Cancer, purple for Alzheimer's and platinum for Parkinson's.

Buy this purple Swarovski charm and £8 will be donated to Alzheimer's Research Trust

Show your support for Parkinson's with this stylish charm

Core is the national UK charity funding research into gut and liver diseases

Buying this beautiful fuchsia charm will help support those suffering from cancer

So this season accessorise with one of these chic Charity Charmz - after all, nothing quite says style like someone who shows their support for a good cause.

RHS Chelsea Flower Show - What They Wore!

Yesterday saw all the stars flock to London for the VIP preview of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2011. The main attraction is, of course, the beautiful gardens and flowers but what is on everyone's mind today is this: what were the celebs wearing? Have a look below and let us know what you think of their attire.

Gwyneth Paltrow looked lovely and was at Chelsea to promote her new cookery book "My Father's Daughter"

Dame Helen Mirren opted for a red paint splash effect prom dress, with red coat and nude heels (though don't think we can't see the spillage on your coat, Dame Helen!)

Tara Palmer-Tomkinson certainly knows how to dress, but her nose has seen better days...

Comedian Rob Brydon poses in the sun

Thankfully HRH Princess Beatrice decided not to wear an obscene fascinator today and managed to look quite chic

Her Majesty The Queen

Miriam Gonzalez Durantez (aka Mrs Clegg) took time out of her busy legal schedule to attend

Lorraine Kelly decided to match the floral theme of the event with a cheerful dress

Alex Kingston (aka River Song in Dr Who) opted for a more subtle complement to the floral theme coupled with nude shoes

Sir Terry Pratchett 

So, what do you think of the looks? Who was hot and who was not? Leave us a comment below with your thoughts!

Check out the RHS's website at and you can look at the Chelsea Flower Show website ,and later buy tickets for next year's show, at

World's First Diamond Ring - Animation

You may recall that I wrote, several weeks ago, about 'The World's First Diamond Ring' by Shawish of Geneva. (Here)

Well now I bring you, below, an animation of the ring so that you can see for yourselves what it will look like.

What do you think of it? Would you buy it if you had £43 million to spare?

Today's Dress - 'Recycled Fashion'

At a press day a few weeks ago I came across a designer who makes clothes, particularly dresses, out of Speedo material, be it either swimming costumes or wetsuits.

Unfortunately the designer wasn't there at the time as they had instead sent an intern so, without having been able to talk to them about their inspiration and ideas, I shall instead have to just show you the pictures.

What do you think of these pieces? In my opinion they are an interesting idea for the catwalk, but I personally couldn't see many people wearing them in an ordinary situation.

Leave me a comment and tell me what you think!
