Time to sit back and dream of the long sunny days ahead (we hope!). Feeling nice and relaxed now? Great, now let's think about how to accessorise for your summer wardrobe. Our SS17 collection is perfect! We have all styles and colours covered.
Check out this fruity salad. We have strawberry rings, watermelon drop earrings and bracelets, and we hope our banana drop earrings a-peel to you. 🍓🍌🍉
Perhaps one of our cheeky jungle animals would suit you. Sleepy sloth, playful panda, cheeky monkey, master of disguise chameleon or peek-a-boo cockatoo. Which one is your spirit animal?🐼🐒
Sometimes we just want to take flight and holiday in the sun. Can't quite wait, then why not let one of our tropical birds take you there? We have a fabulous new flamingo doorknob, and a gorgeous bright bee eater ring. Our glamorous black cockatoo has an impressive golden crest, and our toucan certainly fits the 'bill'. 🐧🌈
Or, let them hear you roar with our fierce new leopard and majestic panther pieces. As with all our necklaces we have a selection of chain colours and lengths available so you can pick which one best suits your style. 🐆🐾

We are so excited here at And Mary as it's international puppy day and we just want to spend our day with armfuls of puppies. Puppy day was set up in 2006 by Colleen Paige to celebrate the magic and unconditional love of puppies and raise awareness of orphan puppies around the world, what a brilliant day!
We love cute, cuddly puppies, just look at these little heartbreakers!
We have a growing family of porcelain pups in our collection, from yorkie earrings, to frenchie necklaces. What is your favourite piece?
Our latest addition is a gorgeous collie pup and we would like to give him a name, so we thought we would run a competition to win a collie pup necklace.
Just head over to our Instagram page and comment your suggested name on the puppy and blossom picture. The winner will be selected and will be tagged in a comment. Good luck! *competition ends midnight 30th March.

Saturday sees the popular celebration of Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Bonfire night. Originally dating back to affairs in 1605, nowadays we celebrate the day with bonfires, fireworks and tucking into toffee apples whilst sipping warm drinks and waving sparklers.
If you are planning on lighting your own bonfire this year, please make sure you check for hedgehogs and other wildlife before you light it! To a hedgehog a bonfire looks like a great spot to hibernate, built just for them, especially if it has been piled up a few days before lighting. Use a torch and a broom handle or stick to check underneath the bonfire to ensure it is clear of any animals. To find out more about hedgehogs click here. If you're a fan of hedgehogs then you'll love our cute hedgehog necklace, seen below, or something from our Woodland collection may take your fancy.
If you do find a hedgehog, use garden gloves or a towel to place them, and as much of their nest as possible, into a high sided cardboard box and put them somewhere secure such as a garage or shed until the bonfire has been burnt. You can offer them water and meaty cat or dog food, and once the bonfire has dampened down release them under a hedge or bush with some more food and water.
Although us humans enjoy the festivities, remember that fireworks can be frightening for pets, especially dogs and cats. To ensure they remain as calm as possible, keep them indoors with the radio or TV on low to mask the bang of the fireworks and if possible provide a cosy den for them to hide in if they want to.
We hope you have a fun evening, whether you're staying inside to snuggle with your pets or heading out to a firework show!
With love, And Mary
