For more details, keep checking back here for more details, follow me on Twitter or like the Facebook page.

PRESS RELEASE: Made With Love by Kat launches month of summer celebrations
For immediate release
REWORKED jewellery label Made With Love by Kat is back with a bang with a month of discounts and competitions.
Throughout July, designer Kat Dibbits will be offering a host of offers including free postage and packing and up to 20% off all purchases.
She will also be running competitions, with prizes including earrings from her range, books, and for one lucky winner, a specially-commissioned item of jewellery.
Made With Love by Kat uses reworked vintage finds to create one-off pieces, from earrings that become bracelets to showstopping necklaces featuring vintage brooches and lots of gorgeous semi-precious gems.
Kat said: “I started the label back in 2008, and it was so popular it really took me by surprise.
“I think as the years have passed and we’ve all been stuck in this dreary economic gloom, people have still wanted to treat themselves to something really special, but without breaking the bank.
“I don’t see why people should have to spend hundreds or even thousands of pounds just to be able to wear a one-of-a-kind piece of jewellery – I wanted to cater to those people who want to add a touch of the couture to their everyday lives. After all, why should Hollywood celebs and TV stars have all the fun? We all deserve a bit of glamour in our lives!”
Kat started the label almost five years ago, when she was stuck for what to give a friend for Christmas.
She said: “I had lost of bits of vintage jewellery that I never did anything with, and thought it would be a good idea to make her something special. Of course, I got carried away and ordered far too much crafting stock, and caught the making bug.”
With more jewellery than she could possibly wear, Kat signed up to the online handmade marketplace Folksy, and was soon approached by the Bridewell Gallery in Liverpool, who invited her to send pieces to be included in a selling exhibition.
Kat’s jewellery has also been stocked in Urbis and the Royal Exchange Theatre, as well as by local small shops in her hometown of Bolton and she still sells online in her Folksy shop, www.madewithlove.folksy.com.
Details of all the offers will be posted online at www.madewithlovebykat.co.uk
