The 2016 advent calendar is designed as a large box that opens up on one side, like a book. It’s tied closed with a festive red ribbon, and has a typical L’Occitane design of hand drawn and water-painted characters and Christmas scenes.

The inside has a ‘Loccitane Gifts Workshop’ theme which is really cute! With 24 perforated windows.

TSNC Big Advent Calendar Giveaway: Day 3 – Azuni London Jewellery & Shearer Candles

Posted on December 3, 2015

giveaway-day-3

Hi Guys!

It’s day 3 of the TSNC Advent Calendar Giveaway already, and I have a gorgeous duo of jewellery and home scents to tempt you with today!

Azuni London is a fabulous jewellery company that I’ve had the pleasure of working with before, and I’ve also included the amazing  in previous giveaways, so I’m excited to bring you some of their wonderful wares today!

Azuni London are kindly giving away their stunning Stellar collection bracelet and earrings set shown above, worth £67!

Ashley Marshall, founder and designer of Azuni seeks his inspiration from his extensive travelling. Discovering a style of jewellery that quite literally sat ‘Between Two Worlds’ enabled Ashley to use his most creative ideas and apply them to pieces that were unique, yet accessible. Combining his passions for tribal and ancient art with modern pop culture and fashion, Ashley’s concept of ‘Urban Tribes’ was born.

Take one look at the Azuni range and you will see that each collection is unique. Ashley gathers his inspiration from many different sources and interprets it into eclectic, individual pieces of jewellery. Techniques such as hand texturing, beading, engraving and oxidizing are carried out throughout our team in central America and add a unique edge to his designs.

Love for Azuni has certainly spread, most notably when Kate Middleton wore Azuni’s Semi- Precious Drop Earrings on a visit to Australia and on many other occasions since.

shearer candles

And Shearer Candles are giving away their Hogmanay Whisky Goblet Candle and Diffuser, worth £39!
