Etsy shop for Miyala Jewellery

This is a shameless, shameless plug but I'm so excited that I couldn't care less.

I've been involved in Miyala since I've been at uni and have run the project for almost two years. Today, we launched our online shop and if you've got a few minutes, then please take a look!

Miyala is a jewellery enterprise that makes and sells jewellery using recycled materials. High-street retailers often send broken and unsold jewellery to landfill and we wanted to do something to stop this. To date, we've saved over 300kg of jewellery from this fate. Our members break everything apart and use their creativity to produce beautiful and unique pieces of jewellery. All our profits go towards our sister social enterprises at Enactus Sussex.

The Ugly Duchess by Eloisa James

The Ugly Duchess (2012) (Piatkus)
Eloisa James
Grade: A
Genre: historical romance / fairytale re-telling
Sex scenes: short of hot
Source: library
Happily Ever After: (1) A Kiss at Midnight, (2) When Beauty Tamed the Beast, (3) The Duke is Mine, (4) The Ugly Duchess 

Lady Theodora Saxby (Daisy to her best friend James) might be one of the richest heiresses in England, but she’s not a beauty. Her guardian, the Duke of Ryburn is a reckless spender who has not only got the Dukedom into debt, but also spent a lot of Theo’s inheritance too. His son and Theo’s best friend, James is horrified when he discovers his father’s extravagance but grudgingly accepts that there is no other choice if they’re to avoid scandal and recoup Theo’s money: James is going to have to marry his best friend.
