We were delighted on Saturday to have Lauren Pope, one of the stars of reality tv show, ‘The Only Way is Essex’, come to do a personal appearance for us at Fabulous in Bath. 

Lauren has recently become the face of new Dutch jewellery brand, Nikki Lissoni – an exciting new collection of composeable necklaces with interchangeable ‘coins’ which allow you to create numerous different looks in Silver, Yellow Gold and Rose Gold.

 It was the first time most of us had met Lauren, and we were extremely impressed by her professionalism and hard work on the day, as well as her warm personality. 

Long before she started appearing on TOWIE, Lauren was a highly successful businesswoman in her own right, having established a very successful hair extension business (Hair Rehab London – ) backed by Dragon’s Den entrepreneur Peter Jones. She has now bought Peter out of the business, due to its success. Having started her career as a glamour model, loved by all the lads mags, Lauren is also a talented DJ, with bookings all over the world.

Far from being simply a tv personality, we all found Lauren to be warm and engaging, with plenty of time and friendly words for everyone who wanted to meet her, and her enthusiasm never flagging as over 250 people lined up to meet her over several hours.

She is a great ambassador for the Nikki Lissoni brand, as she loves the collection, and owns several pieces. With her gorgeous looks, Lauren would make any brand look glamorous, but the Nikki Lissoni collection looks great on everyone, the sheer choice in terms of necklace length, size, colour of metal, and designs of coin making it the perfect must-have fashion collection.

Come and see the new Nikki Lissoni collection in your local Fabulous store, or on-line. And look out for Lauren’s next appearance for us in our Solihull store – coming soon!

Shine Bright Like a Diamond!

Dismiss the cold – it’s time to embrace the month of colour, prints and feminine Spring style! No more winter boots and layers upon layers of wool, it’s all about your fair weather wardrobe, bracelet stacks & statement rings!

This is the month of the diamond, the official birthstone for April & the sparkling jewel named from the Greek word ‘invincible’. The diamond is believed to stand for inner strength, clarity and determination and has long been the symbol for eternal love (oh how we love a summer wedding!) So shine bright like a diamond (yes, Rihanna is stuck in our heads now too, sorry) and treat yourself or those April babies to one of these beautiful designs..

 Sweet Diamonds
As precious as the women wearing them, the Thomas Sabo Sweet Diamond designs feature elegant motifs embellished with a genuine diamond in each piece and a real hint of gold, combing a fashion statement with quality materials.

Inspired by Diamonds, Diamonfire present a unique blend of glamour and sophistication in a premium jewellery range without the elevated price tag that comes with real diamonds (but so beautiful, you wouldn’t know the difference!)

Hot Diamonds
A collection of romantic Sterling Silver pieces that are each set with brilliant-cut Diamonds. This British brand has made diamond jewellery affordable without compromising beautiful design. 

Add to your collections with Nomination’s Moonstone, Thomas Sabo’s clear Cubic Zirconia charms and pendants or Spinning Jewellery or Pandora ring & earring sets to symbolise a birthday with designs that will sparkle in the sunshine!

It’s getting hot in here!
Well, hopefully. Heat wave or not, its time to look forward to summertime fun! No matter your event, holiday destination or choice of festival, your accessories can transform any outfit!

Keep it girly!
There are so many delicate and feminine lines out at the moment, in beautiful pastel shades and art deco styling. Add a splash of elegance to your party dress with delicate pearls, or team your floral prints with a Rose Gold Watch or a statement Cuff and Ring in light blues and greens.

Think sunny Rio!
Add texture to your outfit and wear the Tropical Paradise trend. With natural colours, splashes of exotic Turquoise and animal print, this look is perfect for festivals! Layer up large pendants and team with bold patterns for a hippie vibe! 

Beach Ready!
For the lucky travellers, keep it simple and accessorise your beach wear with stackable rings, a cute anklet or a Daisy chakra

Block colours
Monochrome is back and is the perfect look whether you are in the office or on a night out. Go for it with a bold black and white print, or keep it simple with a black blazer, monochrome clutch and a white statement Watch. If your day is in need of some colour, then don’t be afraid to be bold! Wear bright colours with bright accessories together and bring out the sunshine!
