Black Friday

Black Friday Love it or Hate it by Not a Jewellery Box

Black Friday Love it or Hate it, it seems it is here to stay. Black Friday hit the UK in 2016, typically Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, a holiday not celebrated in the UK. Do you remember the chaos of 2015? People charging through shopping centre doors and literally fighting! It was an eye opening day that didn’t bring out the best of humanity.  Now we all .

Summer Lovin’

Has anyone else blown the dust off their flip flops yet or am I perhaps being a little too optimistic? Yesterday I actually left the house without 50 layers, a scarf, wooly hat and a rain coat… I know, wow! Winter has seriously outstayed its welcome and now we’re cooing over the slightly longer days and those less chilly winds outside. It’s great that actual sunshine is now within .

Hocus Pocus, It’s Halloween!

Deathly Decorations, Creepy Costumes and Gory Goodies…. If you’re a bit like me and can’t resist a good opportunity to dress up then now is the time to channel your inner vampire and get your creep on! Halloween 2017 is upon us and we’re here to help you make the most of it with a few of our own little touches, plus a little inspiration from our fellow Small .

Back to School

In this house, we tend to start the new term full of resolutions for keeping tidy, having a good routine after school, making packed lunches the night before, getting homework done when it’s set, not at the last minute. It’s a bit like the first of January really. How about you? You know, and we know that making a tidy bedroom helps with getting homework and music practice done, .

Summer is here! We hope…

And if the weather is nice, you’re probably planning holidays, sandy beaches and ice-cream. And if it’s not nice, maybe just wishing for holidays, sandy beaches and ice-cream. Either way, we’re right there with you! Here are our favourite things that will make your summer easier. Let’s start with summer at home. You know what it’s like – you have three pairs of nice sunglasses, and a ratty pair .


With an abrupt end to the summer, and the temperature dropping overnight, we’re feeling like autumn here at NAJB HQ. It’s possible we have leaves on the brain, like leaves on the line but a lot more productive, and prettier too! Our new favourite thing is the monstera leaf. Also known as the Swiss cheese plant, the Monstera Deliciosa produces delicious fruit, hence the name, and fabulous leaves which .

Insta Crushes

My guilty pleasure at the moment has to be Instagram. Our feed @notajewellerybox is full of colour and fun photos of our range, and I love seeing what other UK Small Business’es are up to… What fun is a crush if you don’t share it, so here are a few of mine…. @xoxostationery – Oh I love a list! @bear_claw_co – I’m not sure if I lust after the .

Pineapples, Flamingos and Cacti

I would have never described myself as a “Pink” kind of girl. But something has changed this year as I have fallen in love with all things pink and bright. It would seem that 2016 is the year of the Pineapple, the Flamingo and the Cactus. Our Flamingo jewellery dishes have been a popular seller this summer, the little dishes are perfect for storing your rings. We have a .
