T ' was The Night After Christmas..*

Hello Lovelies i'm back with another exciting review! This is very out of the norm for me but it's a start of a new regular involvement i'm hoping to have here at UniqueLoveStyle.

Today's review is for a wonderful company, www.SimplyFancyDress.co.uk whom gave me the opportunity to review one of their Christmas outfits for them!

    (Tutu Elf Costume)

As of being contacted, we as bloggers were given the chance to choose a costume off their website, specifically Christmas related. It was ever so hard to pick as there was so much choice! From cute female Mrs clause to a sweet angel I focused mainly on the size and availability of each outfit to make my overall choice on reviewing their adorable yet sassy, Tutu Elf Costume.

The service which I received was very professional and they ensured that I had all the information that I needed; They posted out the costume much quicker than expected and was packed wonderfully to ensure all contents were kept together. 

The outfit's material is 100% Polyester and I adore the tutu skirt itself! From removing it out of its packaging I hung it for a couple of days so that the skirt part would relax to its full effect. Over on their website as you order, your shown how the item will look upon models with photographs at different angles and zoom ins too which helps pick up every detail of what you will be receiving. Listed also is the costume's sizes with helpful heights and measurements included too, and as you select overall they state how many of the costume they have in stock at that time! 

The colours are wonderful, perfect for the festive season as its very much an eye catcher! And i find the bust top is comfortable as it stretches and fits nicely to the figure.

What's perfect is that with anything you order you can get 5 working days delivery for free wonderful for those fancy dress parties you will be asked to attend!

*NEW* Feature Friday- Sugar & Vice 14th of December

New Feature Friday!
Featuring Sugar & Vice 

Such a joy to be featuring this company whom offers so many handmade gorgeous bits and pieces! If your like me, and have an eye for unique and stylish accessories then this site is for you. Sugar and vice create pieces such as necklaces, rings, earrings to even personalised accessories! Their charms are made from plastic, some are made from lightweight alloy metals such as pewter, most are made from brass that has been either silver or gold plated. All of their charms are completely lead-free and have not been known to cause an allergic reaction, however, they cannot guarantee that they are all nickel-free. 

As soon as you click to go to their website, you can see that their navigation to different parts of their stock is very clear and presented nicely with a lovely kitsch notebook background it all fits in so well with their theme! 

(Pug Necklace just too cute!)


Interview with Sarah Victoria l Co-Owner of Sugar & Vice

1) What has been your key inspiration to your current career?
A) The main thing that inspired me to start the company was, at the time, a distinct lack of the sort of jewellery that I wanted to wear. I've always been very fond of bold, colourful pieces and the only people fitting that bill were Tatty Devine. As much as I adore their work, my bank balance wouldn't allow me to splurge on any of their pieces so I decided to do my own thing and make it more affordable but try to be just as original and quirky!

2) What do you enjoy the most about your job?
A) Working for yourself is very much a game of two halves; it's incredibly difficult but also incredibly satisfying. Nothing in the world beats checking my emails to find a glowing review or a sincere thank you from a happy customer. It never fails to make my day and to know that I've made something that someone genuinely loves is the best feeling ever.

3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' moment?
A) Ooh, that's a tough one! To be honest, no one thing springs to mind. This job is a constant parade of 'proudest' moments, thankfully. Each new piece we design and produce makes us incredibly proud so it's a continual thing and I think constant pride in your work is a very important factor in this business.

4) Where do you see yourself in the future?
A) At the moment, I'm looking into the logistics of opening a brick shop. Sugar & Vice has always been a uniquely online company so I'd love to open a shop in Kent in the next few years. Watch this space!

5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the same career path as yourself?
A) The most important piece of advice I could give anyone is to simply not give up. Times have been very tough over the last few years, especially with the financial climate being what it is, but if you're passionate about something and are prepared to work hard for very little money to begin with, then it'll definitely be worth it in the end. It's taken me 6 years to create a successful business with nothing in the way of business loans or shop overheads so anything is possible if you put your heart and soul into it. 

6) Which would you say is your favourite item off your website at the moment?
A) I think my personal favourite would have to be the Pug Necklace as I'm mad on pugs! A customer favourite and probably one of our more versatile pieces though, is the Magpie Necklace.



If your looking for a statement piece this Christmas, either for yourself or someone you know then Sugar & Vice should be a number one stop! With a wonderful free gift when you spend over £25 and with such a wide range of items it will be something on my Christmas list i'm sure! 

Which items do you like over on their website? Do let me know in the comments section!

Thank you for letting me feature you sugar & vice, and lots of luck to you with the future and a merry Christmas too!

*NEW* Feature Friday- Enchanted Willow 30th of November

New Feature Friday!
Featuring Enchanted Willow

Such a joy to feature this company whom I came across while exploring all things chic and unique. Enchanted Willow is an on-line boutique which sells quirky jewellery to vintage handbags! A perfect place to treat yourself or for that extra special gift for someone this Christmas.

Currently for this Movember, All money raised from their 'Moustache Collection' will go towards helping to raise money for men's health which is a very important cause to donate towards! But not just that, throughout this month shipping is...FREE so don't miss out!

Interview with Sophie l Enchanted Willow

1) What has been your key inspiration to your current career?

A) My Daughter, Willow is my main inspiration for what I do. So much so, I 
named my business after her.

2) What do you enjoy the most about your job?

A) I absolutely LOVE all things quirky, cute and handmade. I love finding 
the sweetest little charms and creating something unique and beautiful. 
It's a great feeling knowing that somewhere out there, there are happy 
people wearing something I have made.

3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' moment?

A) My proudest moment would have to be when I was contacted personally 
with the opportunity to retail at the Clothes Show Live. Unfortunately, 
I only had 23 days notice and couldn't take part but I was so happy that 
I had been found and invited to take part in such a huge annual event. 
definitely next year!

4) Where do you see yourself in the future?

A) In the future, I see myself running my own little boutique bringing 
people the best in vintage style jewellery, accessories, art and prints. 
I'm always jotting down ideas about how I'd want the shop the look and 
what items I'd like in there etc. I get all excited whenever I think 
about it!

5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the 
same career path as yourself?

A) The advice I would give for anyone who plans to go down the same career 
path as me, is to be patient. There are no fast success stories in 
jewellery making, but if you don't start now, it will never come!
Never underestimate yourself and try every crazy idea that comes to you 
mind. All of the biggest jewellery makers of the world were somewhere 
you are now. They made it because they were bold and believed in 

6) Which would you say is your favourite item off your website at the 

A) Right now my favourite item/s are my little porcelain teacup necklaces. 
I absolutely fell in love with these charms when I seen them and just 
had to get them. I'll also be making earrings out of them so watch this 


Just a selection of their beautiful items which they have available to ship worldwide. Each piece seems magical in itself that adds a little character to any outfit.

Festive Fun! - Women's Christmas Gift Ideas*

Gosh this year really has flown by! Some of you have started your Christmas shopping, yet others as well as myself, are still struggling to find the perfect gift for someone.. well fear not as findmeagift.co.uk have something for everyone this Christmas all on one website!

You may have read my previous post about this wonderful website whom supplies gifts from toys to beauty products, and for this Christmas there has been no exception! 

Here are two of their top 10 women's gifts this Christmas, that I received to test out and present to you just to give you last minute ideas.


Knitted Bootie Owl Slippers & Mememe Cosmetics Gift Set - Beautifully Bronzed

Here are my own thoughts and personal views on these products which I was kindly given to review, all comments and opinions are 100% genuine and my own and I have not been paid to do so.


I was ever so excited to see these adorable slipper booties on their website; they are just as snug as they look too! This year i have loved anything with owl designs on, whether its clothing or furniture i find them so cute so to pick which design to try out... of course i chose the owl! 
They are sculptured nicely so can be easily slipped on and off without any problems, I immediately noticed how comfortable they were with a non-slip sole! The interior is a fleece like texture, which helps even more with keeping the feet warm through the cold season. I'm only a size 4 but these booties can fit from a 4 to a 7 so for me they are indeed very snug. These are currently in stock over on their website along with varies designs, from £17.99. I'm sure i'll be snuggled up wearing these during Christmas, if you do purchase these remember they are also for indoor use only! Perfect for your family or friends!


Ever stuck for finding a cute beauty gift-set for that special someone? Let them shine this season with gorgeous bronze and gold tones with the beautifully bronzed set from MeMeMe cosmetics. These have been a brand that i have always enjoyed using their products due to their long lasting wear, unique shades and highly pigmented. This set is perfect for those who adore make-up or this brand, with something for the eyes, lips, nails and face with a cute chic make-up bag to store them within. These shades are stunning for winter, and really bring warmth to the skin. What stood out to me the most had to be the bronzing goddess rocks which can be used by sweeping a powder brush or a blush brush along these formed bronze powder rocks to then apply to the cheeks and nose for a sun-kissed look that leaves your skin glowing! Perfect Christmas gift for women and teenagers that's available on-line at £24.99! 


You can find these gifts and many more over on findmeagift.co.uk with a wide range it's a perfect site to check out for any last minute christmas shopping!

*NEW* Feature Friday- Randomeyes Boutique 23rd of November

New Feature Friday!
Featuring Randomeyes Boutique

Today's feature is based upon a wonderful and quirky company, Randomeyes Boutique! Randomeyes Boutique jewellery and accessories share a uniquely quirky twist - they are random everyday objects...with kawaii inspired googly eyes! 

I'm a big fan of all things cute and kitsch, and coming across this adorable selection of jewellery and accessories i was completely within my element. The website layout in general is presented clearly with both text and images that regard what they create, their concept and also what's new on their site! 

(Custard Cream Necklace)

I find the detailing alone of the products so realistic, but do remember you can't eat them! The products are very unique and eye-catching with affordable prices perfect for a Christmas gift too.


I was able to have a very wonderful interview with the owner herself; here are her thoughts and it was such a pleasure to hear more about herself and Randomeyes Boutique!

Interview with Karen(AKA Ren)lRandomeyes Boutique Owner

1) What has been your key inspiration to your current career?

A) Japanese culture has played a significant role in the development of the Randomeyes Boutique style. I've always loved kawaii characters ie. 'things' with faces, and this undoubtedly influences my designs. However, I've also battled with mental health problems for the majority of my life, so having a creative outlet has been a natural progression for me. I often find social interaction challenging...so giving random objects their own 'personalities' seemed like the obvious thing to do! I actually have a section of my website dedicated to the mental health charity Mind (http://randomeyesboutique.co.uk/category/2229-randomeyes-boutique-charity.aspx) to try and raise awareness, and funds, for this very worthy cause.

2) What do you enjoy the most about your job?

A) I get a lot of satisfaction from the knowledge that there are people walking around wearing something I've designed and made myself. It's a real confidence boost. I also enjoy seeing the look on people's faces when they see my products for the first time, like at craft fairs and other promotional events. A lot of people do a double-take as they're walking past, then they stop to take a closer look and soon start laughing, as what they're seeing is so unexpected! Knowing I've brought a bit of humour to someone's day is priceless.

3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' moment?

A) I think my proudest moment so far has got to be when I was invited to launch Randomeyes Boutique as an official 'brand' at the Clothes Show Live 2010. Up until this point it had just been a hobby for me, so to then have a stall amongst some of the most famous brands around at such a high profile event was amazing! It was a great opportunity to meet my customers face-to-face too, and I received a lot of really positive feedback.

4) Where do you see yourself in the future?

A) I would like to get Randomeyes Boutique products into a few more 'brick and mortar' shops, but I will always steer clear of high street chains in favour of the smaller, independent boutiques. Somewhere along the line I would like to create a few character graphics based around my charms and put them onto stationery, t-shirts and greetings cards etc. That's always appealed to me. It's just finding the time to actually do it that's tricky!

5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the same career path as yourself?

A) You need to love what you do, or there's no point in doing it! Only listen to criticism when it's constructive, and don't let people's opinions get you down. For every person who hates your products, there may be 10 who love them, so they're the ones you should focus on. You will never be able to please everybody, so don't try to cater for every possible market - find your niche and aim to dominate it. Make sure there's something unique about your products that make them stand out from the competition. If you're passionate about something, just go for it! 

6) Which would you say is your favourite item off your website at the moment?

A) I have several items I really like, but I think my favourite are the biscuit necklaces. I couldn't decide between them though! I make each of the biscuits by hand and they're super-realistic, so it's torture being surrounded by them but not be able to eat them! I've lost count of the amount of times I've been asked 'Are those biscuits real?'!


It's a joy to feature such a remarkable business, as well as they donate to a charity close to my heart using their hand crafted products, you can see how much time and dedication they have put in to each and every piece of jewellery and accessory! 

This is one of my favourite item's from their website especially for the Christmas season coming up!

 (Large Christmas Holly Necklace

I wish you all the greatest success with your business Karen! I'm sure you will go very far. It really was an honour to feature you!

*NEW* Feature Friday- All Occasion Sweet Shop 9th of November

New Feature Friday!
Featuring All Occasion Sweet Shop 9th of November

For this week's edition of Feature Friday here on UniqueLoveStyle, I would like to welcome a fun and family run business, All Occasion Sweet Shop!

Really this is a dream website where you can browse such a fabulous selection of sweet hampers, retro sweets and sweet jars for all ages. They developed the on-line store from their earlier old fashioned sweets shop based in Lancashire.

History of All Occasion Sweet Shop

Throughout the 1960`s and 70`s the shop itself, known then as `Old Fred`s Toffee Shop`, had been a favourite calling place of one of the older partners now of the All Occasion Sweet Shop.

When Old Fred sadly passed away in the 1980`s the shop progressed through various ownerships and various trades until, in the late 1990`s, we were lucky enough to buy the shop ourselves and to set about restoring it to its former glory as a good old fashioned sweets shop.

The huge success of this business over the years is what has led us now into the magical world of on-line trading, but our philosophy in running the business remains exactly the same as Old Fred`s philosophy all those years ago ....

....to brighten up the dullest of days ……. to put a smile on the face of all who visit us ……. and to help make and revive some wonderful memories!!


As soon as their page loads I'm quickly drawn to the bright, welcoming and boldness to the layout which makes it very eye catching for customers. There are also clear categories placed which helps to direct you to your browsing needs, including what they can provide for party sweets to weddings sweets!

I had the pleasure to interview David who has been very informative about the business and I couldn't wait to hear more about his own thoughts on his work!

Interview with David l All Occasion Sweet Shop

1) What has been your key inspiration to your current career?
A: Looking for a career outside of our previous very responsible positions and something more 'light hearted' and which is enjoyable, rather than being pressured!!
2) What do you enjoy the most about your job?
A: Receiving special requests from people for sweets which I know will brighten up their day when they receive them!!
3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' moment?
A: Getting the website launched after what seemed like endless months of work!!
4) Where do you see yourself in the future?
A: Flying high!! And taking the business from strength to strength..... Starting with the opening of a new shop over the next few weeks!!
5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the same career path as yourself?
A: Follow your dreams ... don't be deterred.... stick with it!!
6) Which would you say is your favourite item off your website at the moment?
A: The Whopping Carnival Case !!! Which is amazing and crammed full of sweets!!

I'm looking forward to hearing more about the new shop opening and will be planning on visiting there I'm sure!

Their prices online are very reasonable with wonderful quantity too, you really won't be disappointed; I'm sure one of their hampers would make a perfect Christmas gift for someone you know who adores their sweets!
Also if you are to make a purchase over £50 the delivery is absolutely free and they also provide a section of wholesale sweets too!

Which is your favourite off their website? Will you be adding something to your Christmas list this year from All Occasion Sweet Shop? I'm sure I will!

Their layout of categories makes it so much easier to view from gadgets to christening gifts or just gifts for him and her! 

Their customer service was wonderful! Very helpful staff who approached me with a friendly manner and i'm very grateful to have the opportunity to review 2 of their beauty gift sets that are available to purchase from their website!

Here are my own thoughts and personal views on these products which I was kindly given to review, all comments and opinions are 100% genuine and my own and I have not been paid to do so.


Firstly is the most stunning set perfect for that natural and nude look,
It's the MeMeMe Makeup gift set - Naturally Nude.

About this Product
8g blusher box measures approx 5.7 cm x 3.2 cm x 5.7 cm
12ml of Ambitious nail colour
Full sized cream lipstick colour in China Rose
The Willow Whisper and Coral Blossom Dew Pots measure approx 3.3 cm x 2.3 cm x 3.3 cm each
The cosmetics bag measures approx 23 cm x 14 cm x 8 cm

What's in the makeup bag?
1 x Blusher
1 x Satin Lip Cream
2 x Cream Eyeshadows
1 x Nail Varnish

Here are the products in more detail and my own thoughts of them

Blush Me! Shade- Coral
8g Product, best used within 18Months of purchase.

Product contains applicator brush and mirror within the lid.

I have heard before so many positive reviews on MeMeMe's Blushes and i can totally see why! The appearance reminds me very much of benefit blushes and their usual contents, but i have found the applicator brush feels just that more softer on the skin than benefit's! 
The blush is compact with a powder base, that is highly pigmented and also can be built up to a matte effect. It is a beautiful peach/coral tone which has a soft texture to it whether you use the brush or just your finger tip to apply to the cheekbones. This shade is perfect for that flush effect and if your daring to try a coral shade this would be great to start off with as it has its slight pinkish tone to it also!

Blush Swatch

Now as a lot of you may already know i adore nail varnish! And what has been hot this season is the perfect nude shade; MeMeMe has included shade 78 in Ambitious within the naturally nude set.

12ml product, best used within 6 months of purchase

I adore this shade so much! Having pale nails with being pale skinned has always worried me on how it would appear so for this i have always tried to avoid un-flattering shades; But to then hear that a big colour trend for nails this season was nudes i had my heart set on finding the right one for me! This varnish is so delightful to wear, and has been perfect for my skin tone! Its a mixture of a dusky pink and beige tone which is very glossy and sophisticated looking, it makes the nails appear longer and manicured! As always i recommend a base coat before applying this product, although it is pale i will still recommend to be on the safe side; But i shall say a topcoat is completely optional as this varnish alone has a glossed shine.

Nail Varnish Swatch

Also included within the gift set were these two Dew pots! which are rich colour eye defining cream In Willow whisper and coral blossom.

Each pot is 3ml, best used within 6months of purchase.

These are beautiful shades that can be worn together or separately, the tones are both natural and subtle for an everyday look, even for bridal make-up! These eye-shadows are cream based, I found the more the product was applied the intense the pigment became. They also have a shimmer to them which can be picked up under lighting but its very natural and not overwhelming which I love about them! Due to the inside container being quite narrow i would suggest using an eye-shadow applicator brush when using this item, i found that this item was so easy to blend and the consistency was compact yet softly textured.

View of Coral Blossom on the Left and Willow Whisper on the Right.

Swatch of each colour.

Last but of course no means least from the naturally nude MeMeMe gift set is this adorable dusky pink satin lipcream lipstick in ChinaRose.

I have seen this shade many times in stores and it has become very popular amongst bloggers! This is a perfect muted pink tone to add that little colour to your lips; This shade is perfect for all skin tones! Would be a lovely lipstick to also wear on your wedding day for those perfect lips and can be touched up during the day. This lipstick has a sheen to it and is very creamy when applying so my tip is to blot the lips after application to help matte the overall effect. This shade is very pigmented and can be built up with applying although it is a cream base lip product i would still apply a lipbalm before hand for that soft not dried out as this can be the case during the autumn/winter periods.

Swatch of the product
If your interested in purchasing this gift for yourself or someone special you can find it here at - 


For another wonderful beauty gift, here is the balm's shady lady giraffe palette Vol 3!

14.4g Product, 9 shades, Mirror inside also.

First impressions of this product was how quirky its appearance was! The packaging had an outer slip which helps the palette to remain compact, when the slip is removed the palette can be opened and closed easily with a magnetic closure. When opening the palette you can find a mirror within the top half that is completely secure, which makes it handy for when on the go touch ups!  Each shade has its own girly name which i found very 
creative when it came to the names they used such as, 'All the way Annie  'Come hither Heather' and 'safe bet Annette' I think this helps to make much more of a fun product to look at as well as use! Every shadow has shimmer, which the paler colours are perfect for highlighting and the darker can either be blended for a smoky effect or applied for intensity. Personally the shades appear perfect for a natural look especially within the autumn season with its moss green and plum shade included. 

As you may also notice, not only does the palette show which shade is which by printing the name of each above the shade themselves but also if it is an eye-shadow or can also be used as an eye-liner which i think is a nice touch to give people more ideas on how to use the palette when trying different looks! These eyeshadows are compact powder based and very soft to the touch, lovely pigmentation and in all i think this would make such a nice gift for someone who loves their palettes and all things retro this christmas time!

This product currently has 10% off its usual price! Check it out over on -
