Nellys Blog - November Edition

Hello there and welcome to November’s edition of my blog in conjunction with The Lancashire and North West Magazine. My name is Nelly, AKA Antonella The Uncensored Reviewer, you may or may not have seen my face and heard my not so quiet voice all over Facebook and Youtube, you may even have seen me on This Morning in my very own Flowerpot Corner reviewing products. I’m also the co-owner of the multi award winning ladies boutique Ruby & Daisy and we specialise in easy wearing , affordable clothing for ladies of all sizes and ages. We have both a bricks and mortar store in Crawshawbooth, Rossendale and a huge online presence at

We firmly believe that fashion should be accessible to all people regardless of their size, shape and age and over the past7 years of trading we can proudly claim that is what we have achieved. Now then, there is no escaping the fact that Christmas is around the corner and although 2020 has not been the year we quite envisioned, the show must go on , time still ticks away and there is no escaping the ‘C’ word.

But let’s face it, Christmas shopping this year is going to be quite unlike anything we have experienced in the past, particularly as the rules and regulations are constantly changing. As I write these words, gatherings of 6 or more are banned, so that’s my plans for my annual shopping weekend to London with my girlies out of the window! Boo Hoo! However I’m not here to pass judgement or express any political views and I simply adhere to all rules that have the nations best interests at heart. See you soon, Love lots, Nelly Now then, what I suggest you do next, is put the kettle on, delve into the biscuit tin and log onto and discover at first hand ‘The Wonderful World Of Ruby & Daisy’. Orchid Noir Lexi Leather Clutch Online shopping has boomed since the onset of lockdown back in March as a natural reaction to the enforced closure of shops and has been supercharged by necessity. You yourself may have shopped more online in these last 7 months than you have done in your entire life. Plus many people have become more online ‘savvy’ and where online shopping in the past wasn’t appealing as they preferred to touch and feel products and simply enjoyed the whole shopping experience, nowadays they prefer to shop online from the comfort of their own homes.

It’s easy to see the appeal in online shopping when you can have items sent to you simply by the click of a button without leaving the warmth of your own home. We ourselves at Ruby & Daisy experienced a huge surge in online shopping throughout lockdown and that growth is continuing. We’ve had so many women tell us that they had no idea how to shop online before and they lacked the confidence to do it, however they bit the bullet, made their first order with us and haven’t looked back since. As a result we now have customers ordering from all over the world who simply can’t get enough of us and have affectionately called themselves RADdicts ! We have worked tirelessly on our website to make it as user friendly as possible and we pride ourselves on making it as just a pleasurable experience as visiting us in person is. Our website is really easy to navigate around and we pride ourselves on the fact that the happy smiling faces you see on there belong to either myself or other members of the R & D team including the other co-owners Louie & Helena and other staff members. At Ruby & Daisy we have a dedicated Gift section where you can find a vast selection of gifts for your loved ones not only for Christmas but for birthdays too. We have everything from slippers that come presented in their own gift box, leather clutch bags at only £12, designer inspired perfumes, scented homeware, jewellery, scarves and of course our very own Ruby & Daisy gift vouchers which can be redeemed both online and in store.

In addition to all this you can feel safe in the knowledge that we use reputable couriers with a fast efficient delivery service. Mainland UK delivery is a mere £2, so if you find you have forgotten a present, it won’t cost the earth to place another order. Plus for those occasions where you simply can’t wait to receive your parcel, we offer an express, next day delivery service for £4.95.
