All I Want Is World Peace ... and Pretty Jewellery: Astrid & Miyu Review

Thursday, July 05, 2012


A little while ago when we had that lovely week and a half heat wave, a jewellery boutique called Astrid and Miyu got in contact with me to see if I’d like to review some jewellery on my blog. I’m quite picky with what I feature on here so I had a little look and was pleasantly surprised to see a lovely little website full of many gorgeous jewellery pieces. I just had to take up Astrid and Miyu up on their very kind offer and before I knew it two delicate packages were popped through my letterbox, well to be precise popped into my hand by the post lady who I may add comes about two hours earlier than the old postman (he wasn’t old by the way, just slow or maybe lazy which is why we have a new post lady, or maybe he was fed up of seeing me in my pyjamas and make up free) Ha yes I’ve divulged, I’m sure you don’t want to know about how my post gets delivered. Astrid and Miyu are a online jewellery boutique who specialise in costume jewellery. Co founders Jenny and Connie travel across the world to find delicate and unique pieces to sell on Astrid and Miyu.  

I decided to choose two items from the website and opted for two necklaces, I’d seen them layered on the website and really liked the effect and decided I wanted to re-create the look. As much as I love my Corrie necklace I’d had it for three years and I thought I could maybe do with switching my necklaces up. I chose a very delicate horseshoe necklace to bring me luck and a peace sign which symbolises world peace. Look at me, I could run for miss world with that last sentence! I’m a little bit of a worrier (okay I’m a lot of a worrier) so for some reason I thought having a horseshoe necklace may make me feel better and it does (don’t laugh, when you have anxiety you go with whatever makes you feel better.) Not only are my necklaces supposed to bring me luck and peace but they also look so cute! They are on the most delicate silver chains and the symbols have silver diamante. They look so nice on their own or layered up together. They’re small but noticeable and so many of you have asked on my YouTube where I have got my necklace from… well here you go! I’m really impressed with Astrid and Miyu, their jewellery is a little different but really lovely and although it’s probably a little more than what you’d normally spend on jewellery it’s nice for a treat. Or even make a great present for your sister, Mum or a friend. I love my necklaces and I know when I get all nervous about flying to America these will help me out... and they’ll also look really nice at the same time!
If you fancy treating yourself or someone you love I'd head to Astrid and Miyu for sure J I fell in love with lots of lovely pieces! So I hope you’ve all had great day, sorry for the absence on here! I have been back home and the internet went down on Sunday night and only came back on today! I could of blogged from my Ipad but had no pictures saved on there grrr! I also had a mare with my laptop today as the battery has died meaning that I've had to order a new one! Anyways, hopefully it's all sorted now and I'm back home tomorrow so I'll be blogging more regularly over the weekend, before I start my new job (eeeek) and go on holiday next week!! Speak soon :)
