jewellery giveaway!

My beloved style blog, {what you fancy}, is 100 posts old! Although this may not be a major milestone in most people’s books, I felt like I wanted to mark the occasion by treating you all to a jewellery giveaway. For it’s been your loyal (and much appreciated) support that has meant that this blog has been growing from strength to strength since the end of 2010. I’ve loved everything about the process; from coming up with a concept, to spending hours researching posts, following other blogs and Twitter accounts, discovering like-minded people (turns out there’s an absolute army of home decor/fashion/celebrity-obsessed folks out there!), making new friends and connecting with old ones, receiving such kind comments and emails, and basically having a creative outlet that I’ve been craving for years. So thank you. Please continue to follow {what you fancy}, and in the not too distant future, I promise that {weddings you fancy} will be following suit!


So onto the prizes! With the help of the lovely Nicky (my new-found cousin – the blogosphere is like an online ‘Surprise, Surprise’) at From Britain With Love, I am bringing you not one, but two, exciting giveaways. The first is a pair of elegant Swarovski crystal earrings from Alyssa Smith, and the second is a gorgeous vintage button charm bracelet from Mrs Gibson’s Atelier… as shown below:


So, how do you go about entering? Follow the instructions below (IMPORTANT: you need to do both steps 1 AND 2)… one entry per person, please, and bear in mind that your entry will be for either of the prizes. Your last chance to enter is next Thursday and I will be selecting the winners from a random number generator, and announcing the names next Friday. I would be so grateful if you could spread the word on Facebook, Twitter or on your blog – thank you so much! And good luck!


NB: The ‘Like’ button for this blog is under the ‘Search’ function, at the top right of the page.

Here is a little more about Alyssa Smith and Mrs Gibson’s Atelier (huge thanks to both for donating such lovely prizes!):


Alyssa Smith is a Hertfordshire-based jewellery designer, and at just 24 years old her business has flourished and her bold silver designs have been spotted on the likes of Sienna Miller, and in the pages of Vogue and Marie Claire. As well as the beautiful jewellery featured on her website, which are influenced by, “nature, organic forms and magical fairy tale themes”, Alyssa also takes on commissions for unique bespoke pieces.


Inspired by flea markets, antique fairs and charity shops, Sam Gibson of Mrs Gibson’s Atelier works with vintage materials to bring real character and whimsy to her one of a kind jewellery pieces. Sam’s original creations have featured in magazines such as Woman & Home and You & Your Wedding, and can also be found on Folksy, Not Mass Produced, Da Wanda and Etsy. Sam is also open to undertaking commissions.

Both true British success stories!

    Congratulations the blog is a masterpiece. I am however, concerned it may have serious repercussions on my bank balance and Mr Edmunds might not be too happy. XXX
