We Love Celebrity Juice And Lemonade – Holly Willoughby Double Coin Necklace

Well we love Keith Lemon at the moment and we also love his Lemonade Show on Saturday evenings, which he has to keep quite clean. Celebrity Juice the other night was hilarious if anybody watched Eamonn Holmes who was on Fearne Cottons team was dicing with death several times especially his one faux paux when they did guess the picture and he said it looked like his wife s neck ouch and it was veiny Sylvester Stallones arm…..watching Fearne Cotton s Face it was a picture she could not believe what Eamonn had said, and especially as his wife Ruth was in the Green Room he didn t have far to go till he got it in the Neck . Holly Willoughby looked lovely as usual in her little lacy outfit and she was wearing again her famous double coin necklace that her mum bought her. This necklace seems to be Holly s main fashion accessory in the jewellery department as she wears it all the time. If you want to steal Holly Willoughby s style you make like the Kissika gold plated double disc necklace which is extremely stylish which you can buy at www.whatsabouttown.com

Cutie Pie Story so far&8230;..

After many many requests and questions over the years. Here’s a sneak peek into the world of Cutie Pie started by me Danielle Butler in 2007. From an early age I collected vintage treasures after being hauled around all the French vintage markets by my parents as a child. I’ve got quite a treasure trove now&8230;this combined with a dream of working for myself. I started making vintage clothes & jewellery after I couldn’t find what I wanted on the high street and thus Cutie Pie was born.

Name: Danielle Butler , well actually Snowden Boyd – still not used to the fact I’m now married. Plus I’m quite fond of my old name.

Where are you from?

Originally from bootiful Norfolk but I now call Hossegor, France my home after living in France for 5 years.

How did you come up with the name?

That’s a tough one, it just kinda happened. I’m a lover of all things cute so it seemed natural to me to call it Cutie Pie. Which at the time sold reworked vintage clothes & one off vintage chandeliers. Back then I only had a very small collection of jewellery.

Can you give a bit of background into your design history?

I studied Textile Design at the University of Leeds where I specialized in knitwear for some unknown reason! I’ve always loved creating things and remaking things with vintage bits & bobs. Since university I’ve taken a few short courses in jewellery making which I loved and learnt a great deal. I couldn’t imagine not being creative.

What made you set up your own business?

I’ve always dreamed of working for myself and knew from an early age that’s what I wanted to do.

What has been the biggest challenge to overcome so far?

I won’t lie being a small company its tough in this current economic climate. But I’m pleased to say we still going strong, we’ve weathered a few storms but are still smiling (well most of the time). As with everyone running a small company I have good days and bad days, but when you work for yourself you just have to keep going, there is no other choice. But then I remember how much I’ve achieved, Cutie Pie will always be a part of my life.

Where do you find inspiration for your jewellery designs?

From anywhere, it could be someone I’ve seen out and about, some treasure I’ve found at an antique fair – literally anything. I also love reading blogs, and could spend days just sourcing inspirational pictures from the internet.
What is your studio or workspace like?

Like an explosion of beads, charms & finished pieces. I’m pretty lucky that we have a beautiful sunny room which looks out on a row of the most brilliant blue hydrangeas. I’m also a neat freak so even though there are beads, necklaces, charms you name it covering every surface at the end of the day they always get packed away as I can’t bear any mess.

What have been the highlights of Cutie Pie so far?

I’m really pleased to say that there have bee quite a few highlights over the years. Every time Cutie Pie is featured in the press I get a huge buzz and almost have to pinch myself. Also when you meet someone that has heard of you – it just makes you smile & you know that its all worth while. We love hearing from customers and when I’m having a bad day and wondering what the hell I’m doing I just read over all the lovely things people have written, it gives me strength.

Who does you jewellery appeal to?

Hopefully everybody! I’d like to think that the Cutie Pie customer likes to be unique & likes to seek out something different & stand out from the crowd. Abit like me really in the fact that I spend weekends sourcing vintage pieces and to recreate something unique and individual.

What s next?

Now that would be telling! We’ve just launched a part of our SS12 collection and its quite different from what Cutie Pie normally sells. I feel like we are going back to our roots and felt this year was time for a change. We’ve also just finished our first ever look book so we’re pretty excited to share it with you guys soon. We hope you like it! x

Space Exploration on April 12th: A T-shirt for Today

On April 12th 1961 Yuri Gagarin,  the Russian cosmonaut, became the first man into space, completing an 108 minute orbital flight before safely ejecting and parachuting down to the ground, from the Vostok 1 Rocket which had re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere.  An incredible achievement for all involved. So the Soviets had won the space race, but only just. Less than a month later American Astronaut Alan Shepard followed suit on May 5th, in the Freedom 7 spacecraft.

It was not until 1975 that the USA and Russia joined forces with the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project.  The aim was to test the compatibility of docking systems between the Soviet and American spacecraft. This project paved the way for future collaborative manned missions down the line.

Fast forward 20 years: It is April 12th 1981 and NASA launches the first of its Space Shuttle fleet, Space Shuttle Columbia. Its purpose was to act as an orbital spacecraft, capable of atmospheric re-entry, which was partially reusable with modular add-ons and rocket launch capacity.  Columbia was the first Space Shuttle but certainly not the last.  Challenger, Discovery, Atlantis and Endeavour all took their turn in a 30 year history of missions to repair and recover satellites, carry humans into space and act as a base for the construction of the largest structure in space: The International Space Station. The final Shuttle mission took place on 21st July 2011 when Atlantis returned to NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre, Florida.

It seems only fitting that our latest t-shirt design honouring NASA’s Space Shuttle fleet should be published on April 12th.   Wear our Space Shuttle T-shirt in admiration of the remarkably successful series of space exploring missions carried out by NASA.

Stop updating Google Plus and Start a Pinterest account instead

Well after much hype and quite frankly, the odd piece of Propaganda, Google Plus seems to have been one of the most catastrophic flops of the 21st century.

After Google bullying and pushing consumers and retailers to set up personal pages and business accounts, add buttons to their product pages and integrate Google Plus in everyway possible, because ‘they’ll eventually have better SEO than everyone who doesn’t hasn’t helped Google Plus to become anything other than the

“the rich kid who, after having discovered he wasn’t invited to the party, built his own party in retaliation. The fact that no one came to Google’s party became the elephant in the room.”

Former Google Employee Whittaker, ranting on MSN’s website.

Many websites chose not to set up business accounts, even at the risk of not grabbing the username for their brand, due to lack of multiple administrator access, of course highlighting a huge flaw – “what do we do if the employee leaves?!” This problem was eventually fixed about 4 months after Google Business pages launched, but errors and desperation on Google’s part for the software to be the next Facebook have seen it embarrasingly crash and burn as Google Plus is a quite wasteland of Google employees ‘circling’ each other for connections.

The Phoenix rising from Google Plus’ ashes is the quiet, graceful Pinterest. Say hello to the newest, shiniest and fastest growing Social Media in the World!

An easy to use softare based on ‘pinning’ pictures and articles you find across the internet to your virtual pinboard.

It’s the fastest growing social site in the last year with 329% growth in the last 4 months of 2011 alone. Here’s some stats in a helpful graphic from Monetate.

Retailers and websites who were shunning the Google plus button and integration for a long time have started embracing Pinterest integrated buttons. Check out My-Wardrobe – they’re a great example of a proactive and forward thinking retailer, who unusually chose not to add a Google Plus button at all. ASOS are still hanging in there with Google Plus, but it can only be a matter of time before they too give in to the tidal wave of Pinterest and add the button to product pages. They already have a Pinterest business page along with many retailers like Missguided, Ax Paris, Motel Rocks and Selfridges,

One affiliate told us that after 1 blog post utilising Pinterest and it’s hype, he managed 5500 hits that day – and then about 200-500 hits a day for the next week, still seeing hits 3 weeks later.

There’s still some difficulties with users getting their heads around Pinterest’s scary and tricky T&Cs, so remember Pinterest takes no responsibility for anything you’re pinning; it’s all on you – but it seems like for the time-being there’s nothing stopping Pinterest from global domination!
