Glitzy Secrets Reveals Its 2011 Advent Calendar

Glitzy Secrets, a leading online supplier of jewellery and hair accessories, has announced the release of its Glitzy Advent Calendar which includes a range of events hosted by the website throughout the Christmas season.

Though customers can discuss the Advent events by finding Glitzy Secrets on Facebook or locating Glitzy Secrets on Twitter, they can also consult the Glitzy Secrets website itself for more information. The Glitzy Advent Calendar will be available on the site throughout the month of December.

Another prominent feature of the Glitzy Secrets Advent Calendar is “Sparkle Week.” This week-long event occurs during the first week of the Advent calendar and gives customers the opportunity to receive a 25% discount on products from the Glitzy Secrets website. Following “Sparkle Week”, individual prizes and giveaways will begin, with daily prizes being awarded on Facebook, Twitter and Flickr.

In addition to Sparkle Week, Glitzy Secrets has planned to announce an exclusive competition or discount code on one of its various social media channels every day in the lead up to Christmas. Prizes include gift vouchers, an Heirloom of Pearl Side Tiara and other accessories.

In the final days leading up the Christmas Glitzy Secrets will be encouraging users to upload pictures of their Glitzy Christmas homes to Facebook and, following this, on Christmas day, there will be an extra special glitzy present announced on the company’s Facebook page.

Glitzy Secrets Announces The Launch Of Its New Website

Glitzy Secrets, a leading online retailer of hair accessories and jewellery, has announced the launch of its new, updated and redesigned website. The new website has been restructured so that it’s more social, more navigable and more aesthetically pleasing.

The new website includes a range of new features aimed at making the shopping experience easier and more enjoyable. For example, the new site will feature slideshows of top trends and offers so users can stay up to date on the latest styles. It will also give users the ability to hover over product images to see how they look on a model.

Glitzy Secrets has also taken steps to make the website more user-friendly. Part of this effort included a reorganisation which makes it easier to shop for items of a particular price or colour. Users of the new website can filter items according to the category that matters most to them, for a more personalised shopping experience.

Another major aspect of the new website is its incorporation of social media. Customers shopping on the new website can share their favourite pieces with friends by using the new “share” buttons. By clicking these “share” buttons, users can discuss their purchases with friends via social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus.

Glitzy Secrets has also expanded the bridal and wedding jewellery portion of its website, adding a new bridal gallery which features brides who wore Glitzy Secrets jewellery on their wedding day. Users can click on each Glitzy Secrets Bride and see what she had to say about her jewels. If they see something they like, users can choose to “Steal Their Style” and find exactly which jewels they wore. Finally, the bridal section features a new gift category which showcases top gift ideas for brides, bridesmaids, sisters, mums and grandmothers.

To celebrate the website launch, Glitzy Secrets has teamed up with Love My Dress, a glamorous, gorgeous and vintage inspired wedding blog, to host the SPARKLE WEEK competition. “Sparkle Week” is the first week of the website’s “Glitzy Advent Calendar,” where customers are offered a 25% discount code and opportunities to win jewellery prizes and gift vouchers. Additionally, the first 20 customers to use the “Sparkle Week” discount code will receive a Glitzy Angel Brooch.

The Book People Look Back On 2011 And Forward To 2012

Award-winning bookseller the Book People looks fondly back on the bestselling books and annuals of 2011 and looks forward to what’s hot for 2012. The Book People know that books make great presents all year round and that they are particularly popular as stocking fillers and Christmas gifts, especially with parents buying children’s books and colleagues buying cheap books for the all-important office Secret Santa.

Lindsay Eyers of the Book People said: “It has been a great year for the book, with numerous campaigns being started to get more children reading. Reading is one of life’s essential skills and our invaluable selection of cheap children’s books, fiction books and more is built with the customer in mind, and is priced to be affordable for all.”

The Book People’s ten best-selling annuals of 2011 include:
10. Match Annual 2012
9. The Simpsons Annual 2012
8. Ripley’s Believe it or Not 2012
7. Strictly Come Dancing Annual 2012
6. A Christmas Celebration by Avril Tyrrell
5. North – The Greatest Animal Journey On Earth
4. Moshi Monsters: Official Annual 2012
3. Top Gear: Official Annual 2012
2. Peppa Pig: Official Annual 2012
1. Doctor Who: Official Annual 2012

Such annuals are popular because they are very often family-friendly and can be read in manageable chunks after school, before bed, and as a family alternative to watching television. One review of the Simpson’s Annual 2012, left on 5 December on the Book People website, said: “It’s really good, funny, enjoyable. It’s child friendly and an all-round good book.”

The Book People expects classic fiction books to continue to sell well in 2012, as well as celebrity chefs books, boxed book collections and audio books for those who like to listen on the move. With the latest and most popular books available online at affordable prices, the Book People expects the book market to hold its own against video games and the like.
