Chocolate treat for me 

Published April 11, 2017 by Bizzimummy

With Easter being just days off, my bedroom is slowely piling up with chocolate eggs and chocolate animals, and none of it’s for me despite the temptation. Therefore I was so happy when some chocolate arrived just for me. 


These rather luxury looking chocolate bars came from Amelia Rope chocolate. Amelia Rope being the name of both the company and the woman behind the company. 


I found the packaging very intriguing. It reminds me of the brown paper packages which of course are one of my favourite things. Plain, maybe but all the more reason to take a closer look and see what’s inside. The coloured foils  which the chocolate comes wrapped in seem pretty unique and each flavour bar comes with a different colour. Amelias idea for the colours came from colouring pencils with the colour nibs appearing at the end of a neutral pencil stem. You can read more about that here and also more about how Amelia started.

And as for the chocolate inside. Take a look at this!


This idea for cubed blocks was influenced by Amelia’s love for stained glass windows and mosaics with their clear blocks of colour. 

I chose three bars to taste – Sea salt, being one of my favourite chocolate additions and therefore honeycomb with sea salt and a white pistachio and sea salt bar. I could really taste the sweet and salty flavours working together here. The chocolate was lovely and soft (tho not melting soft) and just right to melt in the mouth. I loved the blend of honeycomb (another one of my favourite additions, along with pistachios. The white bar gave a totally different lovely flavour.

My third bar was a totally new chocolate flavour which is violet. The only time I have tried anything violet foodwise are those Parma violet sweets and this chocolate bar did taste a little like those sweets if I had to describe it. It’s a strange combination – violet with chocolate but it certainly worked for me. It is made using violet aroma infused into Ecuadorian chocolate.

Amelia Rope luxury 75g chocolate bars come with a huge 17 choices of infused aromas and flavours as well as plain chocolate choices. They taste and look much better than anything found in the chocolate aisle of a supermarket and therefore make a nice chocolate treat. Especially so for us Mums around Easter time when kids get all the eggs. Each single origin bar costs £5.60 and they can be purchased directly from the Amelia Rope website. 

Ukinkalla gifts 

Published April 11, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Ukinkalla is a small online store selling many unique items from countries around the world. They have many colourful shoes, socks and accessories for both adults and children, items that probably won’t be found anywhere else.

I do love those special finds and Ukinkalla has many of them. Their accessory section boasts many unusual necklaces and earrings. I was able to choose a necklace and a pair of earrings. 


This is the necklace I chose – a Frida Khalo pink. Each necklace is hand made in Venezuela by Moda Maca, making each one very unique.

I have many charm bracelets but this is the first charm necklace I have come across and it is very pretty. 

The charms include a large doll, key, clover, golf leaf and mushroom. There are little jewels all along the front of the necklace too. 

The necklace is made with Peruvian lace, leather and cotton tassels with the charms made from cornstarch clay and gold plate. It measures 42cm and can be worn by adults or children. The clasp is very easy to open and close. 


It certainly caught Izebellas eye who was very eager to model it for me. It’s much easier to take a photo of someone else wearing it rather than attempt myself. 

I think it’s a really lovely unique piece. There are other styles available similar to this one and also some designed especially for children with well known Disney princesses on them. They cost £14.99 each which I think is certainly worth it for a special gift like this. 

The earrings are also quite unique and Ukinkalla can even make them on request in many designs. The earrings are made with copper or bronze and are gold plated. They do have a few pairs online to view and buy and these sort of jumped out at me. 

Yes dragon earrings and you certainly don’t see these in a regular jewellery shop. They are fairly big in size for earrings but will certainly stand out. The backs are the soft plastic type making it easier to remove them. The earrings cost £13.99 per pair.
