Wow, it's already been two weeks since the arrival of Princess Charlotte! The royal baby watch felt like an eternity, and now that the little princess is here, time just flies by!
With the Cambridge's now settled in Anmer Hall, I don't anticipate we will see or hear much from Kate until after summer. However, this week the Duchess did make an effort to show her support for the Children's Hospice Week which is officially underway in the UK. In her role as patron of EACH the Duchess of Cambridge penned a heartfelt note in support for this important fundraising event:
Below are my favourite repliKates of the week ...
This week, Marianna from Books, Birkins & Beauty blog reviewed these Aliexpress repliKates for the KIKI Morganite Cushion Drop & Diamond Earrings:
"The main difference with the original Kiki ones is these are slightly bigger (about 14 mm at the widest point compared to 10 mm for the real deal) and longer (about 28 mm in total, compared to 22 mm) and the stones are fixed in place with prongs all around, whereas the Kiki pair only have four prongs at the corners. Apart from that, the metalwork seems to be good quality and the lever-back hoops appear quite sturdy, unlike some other Chinese costume jewellery, which tend to be rather fragile. They're hallmarked on the back with the usual .925 sterling silver mark. A huge plus, the crystal studded drops are fully removable, so you could use the hoops on their own or with a different set of pendants, as you can do with the originals. The main crystals are a delicate and entirely plausible champagne pink, and very sparkly."
If you would like to submit a review of your recent repliKate purchase, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a short review about the quality and fit, the product link, and photos (optional but recommended).
