Review: Personalised name necklace in rose gold by Caitlin Minimalist

Since December last year I’ve been sporadically googling ‘name necklace uk’ ‘dainty name necklace’ ‘rose gold personalised name necklace’ and other variations, on a quest to find the perfect little necklace with my name on it. Bit like the one Carrie wore in Sex and the City. I'd ordered one online last year, but it just didn't match the image I had of what I wanted in my head. The tone of the rose gold looked cheap, it was too chunky and it was swiftly returned back to Amazon.

I looked around a bit more and found that every necklace with a seller based in the UK either had a strange font or was far too garish. It’s such a simple idea for a piece of jewellery, I was shocked at how hard it was to find a good one!

I stumbled across Caitlyn Minimalist’s Etsy shop a couple of months ago. She’s based in the US, so it meant £15 delivery and I was reluctant to pay it, on top of the necklace (it was in the sale when I paid, down to £24 I think!). But her custom made jewellery looked absolutely perfect and just what I was looking for. I knew it would take a while to arrive, so I took the plunge and bought one a few weeks ago.

I was so nervous when it finally arrived, but I was relieved to see it was just what I wanted. Delicate chain and a gorgeous tone to the rose gold. I chose the font called 'dainty', but there are a list of about 50 you can pick from, for all of her pieces. I did imagine it a teeny bit smaller than it came out, but I quickly decided I like this size as well, it isn't too large by any means. I get a lot of compliments on it and wear it all the time :)

I went for rose gold but you can also get sterling silver or pay a bit extra for 18K gold.

Christmas is creeping up on us and I think one of these would make a really thoughtful, unique gift. Really happy with how it turned out and would definitely buy from Caitlyn again.

Review: The Bodyguard at the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff

Review: The Bodyguard at the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff {Cardiff Theatre and Shows} Exploding on to the stage with a bang ( and my friend Bran nearly jumped out of our'll see what I mean if you go), The Bodyguard opens with a magnificent performance from Alexandra Burke as Rachel Marron. With some seriously impressive stage presence, Burke establishes instantly that Rachel is a superstar, an icon, a diva; you feel like you've been dropped in the thick of it at a big stadium gig. I've never seen the original 1992 film of the Bodyguard with Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner, nor had I read into how they adapted it to the stage. I thought the only song I'd recognise was 'I Will Always Love You', so I was beyond ecstatic to read through the track listing and see I knew and adored every single song. "How Will I Know", "One Moment in Time", "So Emotional", "I Wanna Dance With Somebody"...all

Review: The King and I at Wales Millennium Centre

*Invited - Press night* My first musical of 2020 brought me back to one of my favourite places in Cardiff, The Wales Millennium Centre, to watch The King and I . I know the film adaptation of the classic musical has been popular for years, but I've never actually seen it. I was interested to learn that the show is based on the real memoirs of Anna Leowens, who became the teacher to a Siamese King's children in 1852. It was during a period where great threats of colonisation inspired the King to hire a Western schoolteacher to help modernise his country and teach his wives and their children. Bartlett Sher's  revival of the Rodgers and Hammerstein production felt very traditional from the offset, as opening music played for a little while before the curtain went up. As the show went on, I didn't respond that well to the slower pacing and how the story was told. I think the more shows I go to, the more I learn about what I like most. I do feel the more contemporar

October Social at Head of Steam, Cardiff!

I have been organising my social events free of charge and whilst some are a general drink or coffee catch up, I am open to collaborations too!  Drop me an email on  if your restaurant/pub/cafe is interested in hosting one of our 2020 events, or if you want to enquire about getting involved (local bakers, local photographers, etc.) or to discuss any other ideas you may have. Head of Steam were absolute superstars this week as the hosts for my second Little Cardiff Socials event! A couple of months ago, I came up with the idea to bring together the people I interact with on a regular basis on 'the gram' into one room and just put a drink in everyone's hand and see how it went. I'm not a naturally confident person and have struggled with anxiety most of my life, so going out of my comfort zone in this way and testing my organisational skills has been really rewarding, and I've got to meet so many fabulous people too.
