  1. To continue my idea of bringing you some of Aster's favourite websites, this month I want to share with you  LISU Wedding and Handmade Jewellery. This is a fantastic site that can be found at

    If, like me, you love beautiful, handmade jewellery made with the finest materials, then you should have a look at LISU right away! The site is easy to navigate, with all the pieces set out in categories, so if you have an idea what you are looking for, you can find it quickly. If not....just have a browse as everything is reasonably priced.

    The Valentine's collection caught my eye, particularly the Red Heart Murano earrings that are so cute!


    They are 20mm Red Murano hearts with red and white crystals and beads, with loop earwires. They are perfect for Valentines day and only cost £15.00. And to go with them, why not look at this gorgeous bracelet below:


    I LOVE this bracelet, which is made with multicoloured enamel and red glass hearts on a charm bracelet. It's a steal at £12.00 and would make a fabulous gift for a loved one, friend or even yourself!

    LISU also sells beautiful bridal jewellery and tiaras that could be the finishing touch to the perfect wedding. Another section that caught my eye was the children's jewellery. My daughter, being a typical little girl, loves pink or sparkly pieces and LISU provides these, for an extremely reasonable price. So much so that the bracelet below would make a brilliant present for my daughter's best friend, and comes at the fabulous price of £5.00! The cute heart locket with elasticated pearl bracelet is perfect for all those budding princesses!



    So pop over and have a look at LISU Wedding and handmade jewellery. I'm sure you will find something fabulous to treat yourself with, or the perfect Valentine's gift.

    Until next time....

  2. Ever wondered where Valentine's Day originated? Long before it was called Valentine's Day, there was a Pagan festival called Lupercalia. It was held in ancient Rome, at the beginning of February to honour the God, Pan, and celebrate the arrival of Spring.  It was associated with purification and fertility rituals. Early Christians then decided to change the festival to one of romantic love in the shape of Saint Valentine. The most accepted story of St.Valentine is that he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and persecuted by the Roman Empire. These days Valentine's Day is associated with love, hearts and romance. So if that's what you are looking for, then we have a great selection at Aster.

    For the more traditional amongst you, there is a hand carved love spoon, from East of India. The love spoon has a solid heart handle and comes boxed, plus why not take advantage of our complimentary gift wrap service and get your Valentines "all wrapped up"! (Excuse the pun!!!). The love spoon retails at £9.00 and is pictured below:


    For something a bit different, why not look at the LOVE photo holders by Transomnia. These are 4 blocks that can be used separately or together to hold your most precious photographs and retail at £7.50.


    Or why not treat your loved one to a beautiful Fanny and Claude gift set. The Top to Toe set, currently on sale at £23.40, comes in a gorgeous red spotty wash bag. It includes everything you need for a good old pamper!

    • Spiced Dead Sea Salt Bath Soak
