LJ Couture is a newly launched online boutique, who is owned by the fantastic Lisa Hendy, They specialize in making crystal encrusted dresses in over 90 colours, a range of materials and all dresses are fully lined and boned.
The dresses can be made for any occasion and in all sizes, It takes between 6-8 weeks to make and design each dress, and of course each dress will be a one off, To purchase a dress it costs from £190.
On Saturday July 21st 2012 LJ Couture had their official launch night at the Prestigious Luxe in Loughton where people could view some of the dresses made by Lisa, Place orders and goodie bags were given out to all who attended.
Lisa studied art at school and collage before doing various jobs, It was only when she needed a dress for a special occasion and couldn't find what she wanted that she decided to design and make her own and from here LJ Couture began.
In October 2012 this year they are hoping to showcasing in Essex fashion week, You can contact Lisa in three ways if you would like to find out more.
Below are some pictures of part of the colour chart, and drawings Lisa has done and some of the fantastic dresses she has designed.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish Lisa all the best in the future and her success with LJ Couture.

The Victoria Chart Company have kindly sent me one of their charts to review, They have also offered me one to giveaway, The chart that will be given away is the same as above, and the same I am reviewing.
I have not been paid and all opinions are my own.
The reward chart is large and wipe clean, it comes complete with stickers numbered 1-20 and some well done stickers that are star shapped, It also comes with 10 activity stickers and 6 blank stickers for you to choose how to use, it also comes with an information sheet, a black pen and 4 sticky fixing pads which allow you to stick the chart where you choose.
We have placed our chart in our living room so we can see DJ'S progress and I allow him to place the stickers on the chart each time he gets one.
On DJ'S chart we have used 5 of the activity stickers that came with the chart and 2 blank ones, at the bottem of the chart we have put what reward he will get.
Me and DJ decided together that each time he gets 10 stickers in each activity he will get money to put in his money box, we decided this as he is saving money ready for when he goes to stay with a friend of his in the holidays for a week and also because he wants new games for his nintendo wii and ds.
The chart is easy to use and wipe clean, the stickers are also reuseable.
We have the growing up chart and these retail at £12.50, They are avalible from the website and from amazon.
Since having the chart DJ has started doing all his tasks and is excited each time he gets to place a sticker on their, The Victoria Chart Company also have other charts avalible and I myself will be purchasing one soon for my daughter as we are nearly at potty training age.
This chart has so far been fantastic and will be getting used well into the future, I like the fact that the stickers and chart are re-useable and wipe clean so we can change the tasks as and when we choose.
WHY NOT ENTER MY COMPETITION TO WIN YOURSELF A CHART, THE CHART WILL BE SENT DIRECT FROM THE COMPANY, SO WHEN THE WINNER IS ANNOUNCED ALL I NEED WILL BE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS TO PASS ON.
