NEW ARRIVAL: Beach Art Glass | Fabulous

It’s finally beginning to feel like summer, and for most of us that goes hand-in-hand with a trip to the sea-side. So we at fabulous are feeling very excited about our newest arrival: Beach Art Glass by award-winning artist Julie Fountain…

Fountain has been, for many years, an accredited lampworker for Trollbeads. Working from her studio in Malvern, England, she handcrafts each unique piece from molten glass with sterling silver details.

Having a moment: Paradise Prints

It’s seconds away from May and the promise of a fabulous Summer is on the horizon (OK it snowed this week but we’re ignoring that) with payday around the corner I’ve been compiling a Summer wish list ready for holidays, a fun social calendar and well, just because! I’m known in fabulous for my colour aversion but something has happened this season and my eye is drawn to vibrant palettes and busy prints. I love the combination of bright flora and forna in watercolour strokes and neon shades, I’ve decided I’m a convert – and I’m calling it paradise prints, because I’m not a ‘floral’ person!

On my lust list…

It all started with this watch from Ice – I love it!

Paradise Ice Watch, £79.95 from fabulous

Then after wondering what the brands from my teen years were up to, I re-visited Warehouse, and boy am I glad I did. My wedding guest wardrobe will solely be from them this year as well as many a holiday outfit!

We’ve been working with our friends from Mercy this season, and we love their Druzy Rocks collection. I love the lustre of the crystals, they’re the perfect way to add a splash of colour to your look and the beautiful card they come on looks great in my jewellery box!

There’s no better way to brighten up your bedroom than a fabulous set of bedding (you know you’re getting older when a duvet cover is as exciting as a new pair of shoes!) I love this one from BHS, £65 for Superking

Having a Moment: Arrows

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, Cupid is gracing the covers of cards and romantic gifts, his bow and arrow synonymous with the romantic time of year. Alex and Ani have referenced the arrow in their ‘hooked on you’ collection for Valentine’s Day 2016, but the arrow has a rich history of symbolism, anchored in Native American Indians traditions…

  • Two Arrows pointing away from each other depicts war
  • Arrows crossed over shows friendship
  • More than 3 arrows represents strength,  it’s easy to snap one arrow where as a bunch of arrows is much harder to break, symbolising solidarity
  • A broken arrow represents a feud coming to an end, the end of a disagreement or war

We love the arrow, for us at fabulous it symbolises overcoming difficult times, it represents the path of your life and reminds us that sometimes you have to be pulled backwards in order to be propelled forwards in a new exciting direction.

As January comes to an end, we want to continue to soar on the excitement of the New Year. The arrow reminds us that we still have a whole year of exciting adventures and that we are very much aiming forward. Here are the Arrow items we have our eyes on this payday…

Some beautiful new additions to ALEX AND ANI’s Path of Symbols collection have arrived at fabulous and they are serving as a welcome pick-me-up as we near the end of January! The Path of Symbols collection from ALEX AND ANI consists of both their most popular symbols as well as brand new symbols to add to your collection. Old favourites have been re-imagined as larger, more heavily textured charms, and are the perfect way to breathe new life into your stack! We adore the little details on these new bangles, with their intricately embossed designs and meanings engraved on the reverse.
