Start 2018 with Thomas Sabo

As we wind down 2017, Thomas Sabo and I are giving you a chance to add some sparkle to 2018 – because after all, a girl doesn’t need an extra reason to shine, does she?

Whether you’re starting a new job, or just need a little extra spring in your step as you head back to the office in January, I’ve partnered with Thomas Sabo to help you add a little sparkle to your wardrobe, in the form of two classic pieces from their new Glam & Soul range.

With the tagline of feminine eleganceGlam & Soul collection, the immediately caught my eye – so, the ring and ear rings above had to find their way into my shopping cart – and, as you can tell, my love for all things rose gold is destined to stick around.

The team also let me choose two pieces that I thought you might like. I went for two classic pieces that would complement any wardrobe – the pink ear studs above (worth R1 475) and the Together Forever bracelet below (worth R3 725). Both are 925 Sterling silver with 18k rose gold plating, and timeless additions to any jewellery box.

I particularly love the bracelet below, and actually regret getting one for myself. I think it would be equally at home with a pair of jeans, white tee and sandals, as it would with a cocktail dress – I’d also be tempted to add it to my watch hand, to make even more of a statement.
