This Sunday the 31st of March we celebrate Mother’s Day in the UK, on this special day we get to spoil our mums and show them how much we really appreciate all that they do for us all year around come rain or shine.
Being a mother myself to a beautiful and adventurous little girl has made me appreciate my mum even more as she is not only a great mum to me and my brother but a wonderful Grandmother to my daughter and nephews and niece. Anytime I need a helping hand she is there without hesitation. She has taught me so much about being a great mum, and I love her so much for all her words of wisdom and devolution to being my SuperMum.
So to help you celebrate Mother’s day this weekend here is an Elisha Francis gift guide to help you choose the perfect gift for your SuperMum.

Hello guys, sorry its been such a long time since my last blog post, I have recently had a beautiful baby girl and she has stolen my heart, my time and all my attention for the last few months.
But at long last I am back with some exciting new jewellery and exciting projects that i’ll be working on for the next few months. So a couple of weeks ago I dipped my toe back in the pond when I hooked up with my long time friend and talented photographer Simon Richardson.
We planned a shoot to produce some new visuals for Bomani Woman look book and I have to say they are PHENOMENAL!
I had the pleasure of meeting model Ayla who is a good friend of Simon’s, I saw previous images of her in his portfolio I had to ask her to collab with us on this shoot, her bone structure is ridiculously striking and she killed it on set. She encompassed the strength and sensuality of a true Bomani Woman and Simon captured everything with every click of his camera.
The second model is my cousin Eloise a fresh faced beauty studying performing arts and this was her debut in the modelling world, and I have to say she really impressed us and I have no doubt that she will make a great name for herself within the industry.
So with all the great energy on set I had to join in the fun since I have been working hard in my ‘Buggyfit’ classes to get my body back into shape after my baby and could not resist an opportunity to get in front of the camera with Simon and Ayla.
So I hope you enjoyed looking at some of the behind the scenes images from my shoot, please leave me a comment below as I would love to hear what you think and the professional images by Simon Richardson will follow very soon.
This summer I designed and launched a range a collection of faux septum rings and listening to some feedback I thought it would be a good idea to show you how you can adjust your faux septum ring yourself if necessary as we all have different size noses and they come as a standard size. It is super easy to adjust so I made a quick video talking you through to process…
Now if you have a faux septum ring sitting in your jewellery box because its too big or too small or you were unsure about making a purchase because of the size, you now know how you can adjust a faux septum ring if necessary using 2 pairs of round nose pliers.
Here are some useful links of where you can purchase the tools needed:
