Tilly Sveaas Jewellery
Tilly Sveaas is the living embodiment of her brand – a laidback, sun-loving, beach bunny – part rock chick, part health fanatic with a penchant for foreign travel and an Aperol Spritz. Addicted to denim and her miniature dachshund Mitty, she posses an inquisitive mind, passionate energy and boundless enthusiasm for the next adventure.
Tilly is the jewellery designer behind the hugely successful Silver Service brand, which many of you will know that I was a HUGE fan of and she has just started her newest adventure by launching her first collection designing under her own name. And its ah-mazing!
Already a firm favourite with the London style set, TILLY SVEAAS JEWELLERY represents a more complete distillation of Tilly’s signature style. Remaining true to the off-duty luxury look for which she is known, her new work introduces a more irreverent urban attitude, resulting in bold authentic pieces laced with unmistakable ‘ rock chick’ petulance.
With a collection of padlocks and arrows, tusks and stars, along with other whimsical trinkets in both gold and silver – which she encourages you to wear stacked together, all flirting against a backdrop of leather, lace and leopard; everything oozing laid back attitude and alluring charm.
As many of you will know, searching for a property can be a real hassle. You have to spend all your precious free time looking at places that may or may not match your requirements and on top of that Estate Agents have a tendency to bombard you day and night with calls and emails, often about properties that are little or no interest to you.
If you don’t have the time (or the patience) for this then BCP Homes will do all the leg work for you. They will source and preview all the properties that match your requirements and then get you to come out and view only the very best. Once they have found you your dream home or rental investment, they will guide you through the negotiation process from beginning to end and be on hand to give you advice; organising everything from solicitors to surveyors to mortgage brokers. Their job is not over until you have happily moved into your new home. Unlike Estate Agents, who work for the vendor, BCP Homes only have your best interests at heart and want to make sure that you are not only getting the best property at the best possible price, but you enjoy the experience at the same time too.
A great friend of mine recently bought her first home through BCP and raves about them!

One of the joys of You Need A PA is that we come across an amazing spectrum of different companies, services and charities almost every day. We recently heard of the work done by the wonderful charity Smart Works, who do fantastic work helping women on low incomes get jobs and become financially independent. With extensive knowledge of the problems that these women face, Smart Works provide interview clothes and interview training, enabling them not only to feel more confident but also to help them believe in their own ability to success and move on with their lives.
Smart Works have a team of over 75 trained volunteers who work with cllients, helping them to make them look great and feel confident for their job interview. They rely on financial contributions, volunteer time and clothing donations from committed individuals and organisations to enable them to carry on with their work. So if you’re having a post summer wardrobe clear out, or have recently changed from perhaps a corporate job to somewhere more informal, then please do send what you can to Smart Works as these women could really do with your support.
To find out more information, to make a donation or to check out some case studies, then please do head to www.smartworks.org.uk
James Cadbury, the great-great-great-grandson of the legendary chocolatier John Cadbury has recently launched an ethical chocolate start up. The inspiration coming from the historic brand’s British heritage. In 2010, Cadburys was subject to a hostile takeover by American corportation Kraft, and many have noticed that they have adapted and ‘Americanised’ the taste of the once iconically British brand.
James unveils Love Cocoa; a range of artisan organic chocolate bars firmly fixed in British tradition and handmade here in the UK. The first series of chocolate bars comprise of a number of British icons; Classic Milk (37% cocoa) and Dark (70% cocoa), as well as Earl Grey, Maldon Sea Salt, Honeycomb & Honey and English Mint. So far my favourite being… ALL OF THEM! They really are delicious and he’s constantly trialling new varieties with some new ones to be coming out soon – so watch this space!
Furthermore, in a bid to shake up the market and cater for the new generation of ‘letterbox friendly gifts’ the chocolate is delivered directly to you or your loved one with a personalised message, in beautifully designed wrapping, making an ideal and hassle free present.
