Katy Perry loves CC Skye

It's always fun to see what avant-garde outfit Katy Perry is wearing when paparazzi'ed! We were delighted to spot her looking rather chic and understated in the fabulous CC Skye triple suede studded wrap. Perfect for toughening up any outfit, we love it!

Disney Couture's Kidada range - last chance to buy!

We've just found out that Disney Couture's collaboration with Kidada Jones has come to an end! This means that certain classic designs will no longer be produced.

Actress and fashion designer, Kidada, has produced some fabulous designs for Disney Couture since 2005, many of them worn by celebrities including Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton. Inspired by classic Disney films including Alice in Wonderland, Beauty & the Beast and Snow White, her collection of bangles, necklaces and earrings has a been incredibly successful.

We still have many of the Kidada designs (Magic Castle necklace, Princess suede wrap bracelet, Cinderella Dream Bangle and more....) but this will not last forever. If you wish to add a Kidada piece to your Disney Couture jewellery box, then this is your last chance to buy!

Never fear though! This does make the Kidada Disney Couture range very collectible. In addition, Disney Couture HQ plans to introduce some amazing new designs in 2011 - we cannot wait to see what's in store!

Volcanic Ash Cloud - Delays to International Orders

On Thursday 15th April, the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland started erupting, resulting in an vast ash cloud that has grounded all flights in the UK and most of Northern Europe. As a result, international airmail and UPS services will be significantly delayed. Please take this into account when placing your order. We will inform you of any updates. If you have any queries, please contact us.

For more information about the ash cloud situation, please see the BBC news website

Updated: 21 April - airspace is now open but there will be still delays for the time being for international orders. European shipments are being made overland and USA shipments (posted on 15-21 April) will be carried by sea. Shipments to other destinations will be awaiting the earliest available flight. We hope normal service will resume but in the meantime, we appreciate your patience.

Zentosa loves Sex and the City!

As crooned by Alicia Keys - "
Let's hear it for New York, New York, New Yoooork!"

There's nothing I like more than a bit of fun and frivolous entertainment and for many years, the Sex and the City series gave us just that. I avidly watched the antics of Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte on telly, gossiped about the show with friends over Manhattans, coveted Manolos, cried when Carrie broke Aidan's heart (yes, I'm on Team Aidan), bought the mega box set when the season 6 ended and stood in line with legions of other SATC fanatics when the first movie came out. With the sequel to the movie due for release in a few short weeks, (27 May to be precise) we are really excited to launch the official, licensed Sex and the City SATC jewellery range. This is designed by cool Californian brand, Dogeared.
Each of the charm necklaces is inspired by the Sex and the City ladies and are presented on the signature Sex and the City Dogeared cards with luxurious pink and black satin pouches - just fabulous! We love them all!

Happy Birthday to us plus Disney Couture Competition time!

Here at Zentosa, we love an excuse to slice up some cake, especially one as delicious as this chocolatey creation from Druckers Patisserie. On the 15th of April 2010, we will be double-celebrating - not only is it my mum's 60's birthday (happy birthday mum!), it is also one year since we launched the current website. The time really has flown by!

Launched originally in 2006 as an eBay hobby business, we started selling trend-led, imported fashion jewellery. We had a measly feedback rating of 160 which has since increased to over 6000! Our biggest break was becoming one of the first stores in the UK to stock Kenneth Jay Lane's fabulous jewellery. This was followed by becoming a stockist of Butler & Wilson jewellery and the up and coming Disney Couture brand in late 2008. By early 2009, we decided that our then rather basic website needed a transformation - the new website took a few months to be developed and was launched in mid-April.
Despite all the growth, we are still a little unit (just me and Mr Z plus the occasional packing pixie) and it still amazes us how far we've come since those early days. To thank you for letting us do what we love and to celebrate the re-stocking of our key Disney Couture lines, we are holding a competition to win a £50 voucher to spend on Disney Couture jewellery in our store. Hurray!

Entering is simple - a winner will be drawn at random at 10pm on Saturday 17th April from all the entries. To get an entry, you can:
