This gold Double Pebble necklace is a wear-all-Summer-long accessory. Wear alone, but it’s also the perfect addition to the current layered necklace look. There’s a single version with just the gold-plated brass pebble (R380) but we fancy this one, which has a labradorite stone too. R490 from themakerycollection.com
Can you feel how the energy in the air is changing? A new season, a new attitude, new alternative options to old favourites. One of these is the continuing shift to exploring alternative beverage options …. we’re talking lower alcohol and less sugar. So if the trendsetters are to be believed, and we have no reason to doubt them, Symmetry Botanical Tonics are certainly going to be the popular choice this season. Not only is the range alcohol-free, but the tonics also contain a quarter less sugar compared to regular versions … so bye-bye secretly counting calories! The range includes citrus, spice and floral tonics – each the perfect balance of savoury, tart and bitter. Simply mix 50ml of the tonic with between 150 and 200ml carbonated water and enjoy as is or use as a mixer.
