Holy F*^K I am 39…. I did the maths and everything! This year I am 40 and there are some things I want to do before that happens. Here are my top five! 1. Sleep in a yurt, I am picturing a log burner, sheep skin rugs, red wine and music (insert long pause whilst I think of 2,3,4 and 5) 2. Get the tattoo that is on my back .
The day had arrived when my son’s bedroom needed a makeover. He is 10 years and and prefers a floor covered in lego to a nice rug. I really struggled to find some inspo for an older boys bedroom makeover, so I decided to write this blog. I made the school girl error of asking him for his colour choice… grey walls and green everywhere else! No that was .
We’ve been using Social Media for NAJB for a few years now and not only is it a powerful tool for any small business in 2018 but the community is one that makes you feel loved, inspired and part of a bigger team, which is amazing when you’re a bit of a one man band working out of your garage at home. We are very lucky that we have .
We just love the community we have found ourself in within Instagram and have discovered so many fabulous pieces from the most talented people across the world.

My mum, Lesley has been a rock at NAJB through .
I thought I would start the Blog for 2018 with a little bit about me… Living that Devon life I’m all about keeping myself grounded with the kids and their general school day-to-day routines, taking Coco out for walks along our beautiful English Riviera, and cracking on growing and developing Not A Jewellery Box. Being a single Mama with my own business to run and a lot to do .
We had a fabulous Christmas, flying out to America the day after my mum went over, to spend Christmas with my brother and his family. We did that airport pickup surprise thing, which was just as good as it looks in the movies! For New Year I’m trying to be good and do yoga regularly. I’ve been mining the internet for information, and am blown away by how much .
In the run up to Christmas, it’s a known fact that the days get shorter and the lists get longer, the children get more highly strung, and the diet goes out of the window. But when you’re running a small business, which has a peak in the run up to Christmas, then times that by about 5! So then, here are my handy hints for surviving Christmas as a .
Six months later I think I have a plan, well we’ll see what happens. So where to start? At the beginning is probably best. Not a Jewellery Box was started 6 years ago.
