Love Hearts & Crosses & A Little Giveaway.

This morning the postman brought me a box full of goodies & it really brightened up my day! There's something about opening parcels, even if you know what's inside, that is just so lovely - yay for online shopping!

My wonderful boyfriend bought me this gorgeous bag and I'm just so in love with it! Until now I didn't have a nice bag that would instantly smarten up and really complete an outfit. I have a scary interview tomorrow that I'm super nervous about & I'll definitely be carrying this bag to go with my dark grey shift dress & black blazer.

The gold hardware is really lovely and it really adds that little extra something. Inside there are 2 open compartments with a zipped pocket in the middle. It's not one of those bags that will fit a lot inside but there's definitely room for all your essentials! I opted for the black version but I have a feeling I may have to purchase another in either cream, pink or tan! At £25 I think this is a complete bargain & I love it a lot!

Conny, the beautiful lady behind Love Hearts & Crosses, also popped in a sneaky little extra present for me because I've mentioned the shop a couple of times on my blog. This was so unbelievably sweet of her, she totally didn't have to but she picked out the perfect item - a bunny necklace! How sweet is this necklace? I had to put it on straight away!

My boyfriend found a code for free delivery & a free pair of earrings, which is where the little giveaway part comes in. These swallow earrings are too lovely not to be worn all the time so I'd love to pass them on to someone who will give them lots of love!

♥ If you'd like the chance to win these beauties then just pop over to the Love Hearts & Crosses website, pick out your favourite item and then let me know what it is in the comments of this blog post. You must also be a follower of my blog! I'll pick out the winner in one weeks time! ♥

Have you ever purchased anything from Love Hearts & Crosses before? Don't forget to enter the giveaway if you'd like to win those adorable swallow earrings!


  1. LH&C do stock some lovely things, but most you you can find on ebay for only a few dollars. The the crystal animal rings, octopus rings, filigree rings, deer skull ring, unicorn ring, double key rings to name but a few can all be purchased from ebay for less than £5. And that's just one section and those I can name from the top of my head. Still, I guess that's business for you.

  2. Ooh I like that bag very much! May have to buy one for myself. I use a massive bag in the day but this would be ideal for evenings :)

  3. The bunny necklace is way too cute :)

    I love this ring: http://shop.loveheartsandcrosses.co.uk/rings/697-mr-octopus-ring.html


  4. @Beauty's Bad Habit - That's definitely business. That's what retail is, I bet the likes of Topshop's mark up's are INSANE! Not everyone likes/uses ebay afterall. In my ebay experience customer service isn't that good, things aren't nicely packaged etc. Love hearts & crosses is exceptional in all those areas. :)

    @Lydia - Would be perfect for evenings out!

    @Natalie - I love that ring too!


  5. My favourite item is the cat and the canary brooch :) xo

  6. I adore the typewriter necklace! Those earrings are adorable, too!

  7. I love the bag, it looks really pretty, not how i imagined it would! Not too long ago i purchased the gold cherry drop earrings, your my lucky charm earrings and the silver finger cross ring and got the big owl necklace free with my order which i love! My favourite is now the bird claw necklace :)You can see my post on LHC here: http://sleepwakehope.blogspot.com/2011/09/love-hearts-and-crosses.html

  33. Jennie, you're so right in one of your comments in re: ebay - I recently used ebay to buy some ribbon and I got some grief from the seller because I asked her if she combined P&P. She was so horrible about it, saying "You should be grateful that the product is sold for under £2.00 - why do you keep asking me? Just pay!" And then she cancelled my order because she didn't "want to have a customer like me". It's like another set of customer service rules on there. I was so shocked, such over reaction just because I clicked the "request final amount" twice. I just wished her luck in her business and clicked the litte red cross in the corner. xxx

  34. Love love love the Drink Me necklace. Thanks Jennie for introducing me to this amazing website!
    PS LOVE you blog, it's just the cutest.

  35. Such pretty jewellery :) :)

    I love the Silver Karma Circle Angel Wing Necklace <3

  36. Oh wow I wish I'd heard of this website sooner, there's so many wonderful items on! I think I may have to make an order myself very soon. My favourite piece is definitely the gold ampersand necklace, it's so unusual!

  37. Hee, that bunny necklace could not be more perfect for you.

  38. That bunny necklace is adorable-so very you!
    I adore the Love Hearts and Crosses site; it's a great place to buy birthday presents from as friends don't always know of it so don't have their items. Plus they always love what they recieve.

    My favourite items from there are the Alice in Wonderland themed ones, in particular the Alice and the playing cards ring.

    Much Love


  39. i have to have the bunny necklace!! all of their stuff is beautiful!

  40. So many great ones! I like the Typewriter Key Ring, the Silver Leaf Ring, the Flying Swallow Ring and the Lucky Swallows necklace. Really anything with swallows is my weakness.


  41. Was so excited to come across this on my Facebook Page, long time follower of Lovehearts and Crosses - they've so much amazing stuff but with a 15 month old I don't get much of a 'me' budget anymore.
    And to be perfectly honest my dream item was the Swallow Earrings! To be worn EVERY day! :D
    Following your blog now too and have to say it's a great read!
