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 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

Top Local Bakers in Cardiff

I've neglected my blog for a while and now I find myself in a certain predicament (unable to post on Instagram for at least a week - long story - first world problems),  so I thought I'd spend an hour or so talking to you about some of the best bakers available to you, if you live in Cardiff and the surrounding areas. I'm not a huge 'cake' person and I often skip dessert, so to impress me with something I don't often want must mean that they're some top quality sweet treats. Which all of the below are :D *Post contains 100% of my own imagery, products gifted for review between 2019-2020* Welsh Picnic Pantry IG:  @WelshPicnicPantry Based in Cardiff DM or email to enquire WPP make artisan preserves, handmade in the heart of Wales.

Review: Thomas Restaurant at Future Inn Cardiff Bay

{Complimentary meal in return for honest review} I've had more opportunities to try hotel restaurants this year and I’ve discovered there are a few where the standard of the food is amazing; I’ve recommended them to others and have gone back with friends or family. Thomas Restaurant is the newest one to add to this list. Thomas Restaurant is located within the Future Inn hotel , which is just across from the Red Dragon centre in Cardiff Bay . I didnt know what to expect - I don't often go to this area of Cardiff, but when I walked up and saw the sparkling lights I was taken aback with how effective it was. The hotel instantly came across as warm and welcoming, with tasteful festive decorations up and friendly staff at reception. There's a bar area leading on to the restaurant, with modern hanging paintings adding a splash of vibrancy to the space. Their menu has had a big revamp this month and the ‘Taste of Wales’ theme shines through with their traditional
