Winter is here, time to enjoy all the things wonderful about this time of year..... Ok, I know its cold but, let's be positive.

So with a blink, here we are in Winter. For me, I have a love / hate relationship with this season. Through the hottest parts of Summer, I romanticize about rugging up in woolly scarves and wearing warm jackets, just imaging what it would feel like to be cold! Then autumn comes and I'm so excited about COMFORTABLY wearing jeans and boots again. However, by Winter, the harsh reality has set in. If it isn't the cold, dark mornings getting me down, its the fact that every one else seems to be holidaying in the tropics or worst still enjoying the European Summer - ahhhh 😩
I feel your pain, so in this edition, we hope to warm up your Winter Vibe. With FBJ inspiration to brighten up your day and ways to wear the SUNSHINE you have been missing.
We look into the latest trend of BELLY HUGGIES, a jewellery reboot for the beloved belly piercing. We also showcase our innovative HOLD ME CURVE earring attachments. You'll never lose a chain earring again with this simple and secure system. Also we get down and detailed with all things TRAGUS. We answer all your questions that you have always wanted to ask and as always a chance for you to Win $50 of Ivy Dayelle jewellery in our GEMMS - Have your say.

There was a time when an exposed mid-driff would cause a public stir, but as time passed, this once edgy look became socially acceptable. That was until the nineties embraced this rebellious call and took it a step further by shocking society and getting our navel pierced. Adoring our belly's with gorgeous over the top banana bars, dripping with chains and charms.
Brittany Spears' reigned supreme. She was the envy of every girl and the pin-up of her time. Popularising the piercing, making it THE must have accessory for every closet pop-star wanna be. Fast forward 20 years with some ups and downs, Brittany still looks amazing and The love for belly piercings remain. However, some things have changed, instead of the excessive pieces, the modern goddess is looking for a subtle, understated way to show off one this beloved piercing.
The chunky banana bars have been replaced with cute and comfortable rings. Just enough bling to suggest a hint of something special. Affectionately know as BELLY HUGGIES this latest trend is the perfect way to refresh your belly jewellery and update your look.

Remember DROP CHAIN EARRINGS. These earrings first appeared in the late Eighties and early Nineties, they were the go-to earring to complimented your best double denim or Lace (Madonna inspired) outfit.
You would also remember the constant worry of checking you had both earrings, as these little beauties had an awful habit of working out of your ear piercing. A victim of this myself, it resulted in me owning the largest collection of single earrings in the southern hemisphere! Seriously I think this is how the statement ONE EARRING trend started.
So now DROP CHAIN EARRINGS are back and some are still the same design of continuous chain. However, this isn't our first Rodeo......We've been there, done that, not doing it again.
Introducing the HOLD ME CURVE, a solid bend that sits comfortably in your ear piercing, eliminating chain movement and improves the security of the earring fitting. No need for constant checking, these earrings aren't going anywhere.
The curve works with the natural shape of the ear lobe and against the tendencies of the chain to move.
So it seems that everyone has gone and got their Tragus pierced and not only have you missed the boat but you didn't even know there was a Tragus boat in the first place. First guesses, a Tragus, it sounds like something you would cough up but actually it's a fun and subtle way to expand your earring collection.
A Tragus piercing is situated in the thick, firm flap of cartilage of the inner ear that covers your ear channel. It is usually placed in the centre of the space for comfort, safety and aesthetics, using either a micro-barbell or ring for jewellery
So now you're informed on the basics, let's find out the answers to the rest of your questions, like...
👉Give Me the Facts
👉Seriously, How Much Does It Hurt?
