meet me at the beach...

Those are five words you are highly unlikely to hear from me. Along with other five word phrases like "meet you at the gym" or "I'll have the salad please"

It's not that I don't like the water or the sand it's just the sunshine I can't handle. So the chances of me ever making it onto an Australian beach are nil. Instead I will just have to make do with these wonderful necklaces from Monica Stassi named after Australia's most beautiful beaches.

Made from wood and cotton fabrics they are hand-made by Monica from sustainably-sourced Tasmanian Oak Hardwood and 100% Cottons. 

My favourite is the triple stranded Bondi below...

They are a total scoop with prices from only £18.95 from one of my favourite places to prowl around at weekends howkapow.
