So it’s nearly Christmas, are you all ready? Christmas outfits and presents all bought? If not then I’m sure you have some last minute purchases to make. But as I’m sure you have plenty of things you need to purchase this month, money may be in short supply.

So here comes in Klarna. I’m sure the name rings a bell, but if it doesn’t let me explain… Klarna allows you to shop online at Asos, Miss Selfridge, H&M, Topshop, and hundreds of other online stores, to “try before you buy”. Shoppers accepted (18 years or older and subject to financial circumstances) for Klarna’s pay later service have 14 or 30 days (dependent on the retailer) to pay for their online order. You can also have the option to Pay later in 3 will allow you to spread the cost of your purchase over 3 equal payments. The payment for each instalment will automatically be collected from the debit or credit card you entered at checkout. Your first instalment will be collected when your order is confirmed by the merchant and instalments 2 and 3 are scheduled 30 and 60 days later, respectively.
This means you could get a pile of clothes delivered, try them on and return any you don’t like, then only pay for what you keep. For cash-strapped people like myself, this removes one of the biggest obstacles to online shopping, waiting for returns to be put back in your bank account. There is no interest, fees or late charges, even better!

So what’s stopping you, let’s do some online shopping and buy those last minute festive outfits for Christmas and New Years eve. In this post I have shared some of my favourite festive pieces from clothing retailers paying using Klarna. The brands shared are Topshop, H&M, ParisianFemme Luxe Finery, I Saw It First, and Asos.

Hope you enjoy seeing some of my festive styles, and pay later using Klarna yourself!

Hey guys, how are you all, getting in the festive spirit? I’m really excited to share with you a little blog about the luxury online jewellery retailer I have been working with called Lily Arkwright.

Lily Arkwright offers the very best you can buy lab grown moissanite , diamonds, coloured gemstone engagement rings, wedding bands and bridal jewellery, in a variety of 18K white, yellow, rose gold and platinum precious metals. I’m guessing most of you haven’t heard of moissanite? It’s an ethical lab grown diamond alternative that looks the same as a diamond, but is approximately 90% cheaper when compared to an equivalent mined diamond.

We now know how important it is to be sustainable and ethical, which is why Lily Arkwright is so great! They understand the responsibility they have to make sure their jewellery is sustainable. All of their moissanite, lab diamonds and coloured precious gemstones are lab grown, unlike conventional mined diamonds. So, those jewellery purchases you make from Lily Arkwright, can be bought safe in the knowledge that no person, community or environment has been endangered whilst crafting your beautiful ring. Phew!

In addition to their moissanite offerings, they have a truly exquisite lab diamond and coloured precious gemstone collection, including engagement and dress rings, featuring the world's number one coloured lab grown gemstone creators, Chatham.

The products all have an amazing price point and Lily Arkwright also offer free UK & European delivery and ship globally. They are a verified Assay Assured Jewellery Retailer, and a proud part of a scheme of sampling and testing by Assay Assured.

The ring you can see below that I am wearing, is the Lottie 4 Prong Brilliant Round Moissanite 9K White Gold Tulip Solitaire... I mean look at that sparkle! The romantic classic 4 prong solitaire perfectly showcases a dazzling 1 carat diamond. I’m actually in love! It will be a great addition to my festive party looks, and is sure to become an heirloom in years to come.

If you wanted to visit them rather than just shopping online, they have a brand new showroom based in Didsbury, Manchester (UK), and you can receive a complimentary one-to-one consultation with a member of their expert jewellery consultancy team. Click to book your appointment now.

Hope you manage to have a little look online, Lily Arkwright are great!

Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year,

Hello guys, long time no speak. This year has been my time to go travelling, as I recently became self-employed I have taken the opportunity to travel and see the world. To help me with my travels I have started using the app called Worldee*. Worldee allows you to discover a variety of places across the world. Ranging from tourist attractions, nightlife, restaurants and hotels, find more places in your current location and learn vast amounts about these places.

Worldee uses enhanced reality, so all that is required is a point, aim and tap on the icons which are hovering over your chosen point of interest and you can instantly know all the information you require. If you want to know about the wider proximities, then you can use the listed view to discover more places and plan where you are going to be heading throughout the day and night.

Once you have visited a place on the app this will automatically save to your profile, allowing you to reminisce on past places visited, and if you wish to rediscover information about this place, then this is available at your disposal.

I found the Worldee app super useful when I went to Mykonos a few weeks ago and it really helped me discover some cool spots to go to!

I went with my friend and we wanted to just spend the time wandering through the maze of narrow alleyways so we could discover little gems. All the buildings are painted white and blue and draped in bright pink flowers as we were there in early Spring. There are lots of cafes, bars and boutique stores where you can find genuinely lovely gifts, souvenirs, jewellery and clothing (not just cheap and tacky tourist crap that you find in most places). We wandered up to the famous windmills and strolled along the coast where little bars stretch out to the sea.

We used the Worldee app to find a fabulous place to have lunch, obviously we wanted it to be Instagramable too! ;)

Whilst strolling and using the app we came across Joanna's Niko's Place Taverna which was tucked away just off the main tourist strip. Visitors staying a few days or a week will probably know of this little beach area but it remains a hidden gem to the crowds.

We walked past the windmills and through a dusty car park. You'll think you're going to wrong way but keep walking along a narrow but busy road for 5-10 minutes. The road follows the coast and looks out over the gorgeous sea and little beaches.

Joanna's Niko's Place Taverna has a casual eating area plus sun loungers outside and it's the perfect place to laze away the afternoon.

My tips for Mykonos:
  • The waters around Mykonos are choppy so I'd recommend sea sickness tablets for boat trips.
  • Arrive early to photograph the windmills. It can be difficult to get a good shot when they're surrounded by people. Sunset is another great time for a gorgeous shot but there will be lots of people up there.
  • Lots of people get around Mykonos by renting a scooter or quad bike. Make sure you hire from a reputable company and return it on time to avoid sky-high fees.
  • Just explore, Mykonos is perfect for a relaxed break.

Hope you enjoy exploring Mykonos, let me know if you use the app, it really helped me!
