East London Street Art

GraffitiDespite the particularly chilly weather we’ve been having of late, we’ve been lucky with a couple of bright, sunny weekends in East London. With this in mind, Laura grabbed her camera and took the opportunity to head out into Brick Lane to snap some of the fantastic street art that can be found in every nook and cranny of this diverse part of the city.East London is known for its eclectic mix of people, fashion, shops & bars and the graffiti is no exception. Having lived in this part of London for several years, Laura has seen the area change a lot, but it’s always mantained it’s quirky, individual feel!

We love the cat theme here, showing two completely different styles of street art..

One of our favourite artists, Stickman creates these instantly recognisable characters…

The beautiful light and clear blue sky highlights the amazing colour in the art…

Upside-down men and brightly coloured birds, anything goes!

Laura’s an Alpha Female!

Cosmopolitan May 2013There’s been much excitement at Laura Gravestock HQ as we’ve been eagerly waiting for the latest issue of Cosmopolitan to hit the shelves…and here it is! As you’ll see below, Laura has been chosen as Cosmo’s Alpha Female, and she’s absolutely thrilled!

Laura has joined the likes of Kate Nash, Kimberly Wyatt & Rebecca Adlington to be Cosmo’s Aplha Female for May!

Laura was asked by Cosmo for her top tips for running a business & words of wisdom, and we think everyone should take her advice to grab every opportunity that comes their way! What would your top tips or words of advice be?

Stacker rings provide a good opportunity to be your own jewellery curator – show your personality by adding a ring with a little bit of cheekiness. We’ve been going crazy for the new Stacker range…piling as many on as our digits will allow. Once you start, you won’t be able to stop!

Don’t be afraid to put a few differing styles on your fingers – we’ve been teaming the Stacker range with the Struck collection and even our Promise cocktail ring for a bit of colour. We particularly love the ‘first knuckle ring’ grazing our index finger, what do you think?

We’ve displayed our rings on Laura’s beautiful purple Cambridge Batchel which we’re in love with right now.

We’ve got a whole lotta love on our hands in this photo – the Written Heart ring & Heart Charm stacker ring are joined by the delicate Written Love ring and the Struck ring. We’ve also used a Stacker Band as a first knuckle ring, keeping the Written Star ring company.

We love the mix of gold and silver & the different looks we can create with a range of rings – don’t be afraid to mix it up a little!

Now that Spring is officially here, it’s out with the old and in with the new – and what better way to update your collection of accessories than by filling your jewellery box with the daintily feminine Gem Stacker rings from our exciting new collection. Share them across several knuckles or wear a few on the same finger – the great thing is, it’s all up to you.

We think we’ve struck gold with this particular look – an electric Struck ring on the middle finger, a dainty Labradorite Gem Charm and Tiny Heart Charm ring on the ring finger and a Silver Written Heart ring on the pinkie.
