Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, will be celebrating 60 years as ruling monarch of the United Kingdom, with her Diamond Jubilee Tuesday, June 5, 2012. In honour of this celebration there have been much buzz around London, and all over the country.
Beauty and the Snob has found some quintessentially British brands and traditions to get into to celebrate and mark this special occassion. Granted, not everything is for sale, but isn't it wonderful to see all the unique creations and displays that people have created just for her Royal Majesty?
The best part? An incredibly LONG WEEKEND! The Bank Holiday will be moved to Monday June 5, and extended to be a (wait for it) 4 day long weekend. Woo hoo! LONG LIVE THE QUEEN!
From Monday May 21 through to the Diamond Jubilee, Ormonde Jayne has created these floral crowns in their windows with fresh roses in honour of her Royal Highness. I'm told that it also coinsides with the Chelsea Flower Show and celebrates the beautiful flowers that are now in full bloom!
Promotion: From May 22-June 13 Ormond Jayne will be offerring a complimentary mini scented candle with every purchase. They are also serving all their customers who participate in their famous parfum portrait consultation a glass of champagne and cupcakes made from rosewater and rose petals.
This is not only DELICIOUS, but simply DIVINE!

It's just like what the MADHATTER says about muchness.....
"You used to be much more....'muchier'...You've lost your muchness..."-MadHatter, Alice In Wonderland
If you're wanting muchness or get your muchness back with the Diamond Jubilee....you must have high tea!
Please remember that if you're going to drink Earl Grey, drink it like the Queen!
How to drink Earl Grey like her Royal Majesty: No milk, no sugar, perhaps a slice of lemon. Note, that Earl Grey is also a fantastic thirst quencher. Indeed, perhaps the best tea to have at tea time.
You can write a congratulatory message to her Royal Highness, via the Official Website for the Diamond Jubilee:
If you plan to be down to Buckingham Palace, to join thousands of people to greet, The Queen on her big day, then you will need to perfect a Royal Wave!
Nails Inc. has launced a limited Edition Diamond Jubilee Crystal Colour Polish-in red,blue & silve sparkles. I'm loving the bottle cap on this number too as it wears like a little crown on top of the bottle. Cute!
I've created a ROCK'IN Royal Wave manicure here using Baker Street & The NEW Limited Edition. I've added some nail decals that look like chains here to keep the look updated and in season as goth and rock are back....
I guaruntee with all the sparkles her Royal Highness just might see you within the crowd!
Diamond Jubilee Crystal Colour , £15 is available at:
So the In-Laws have invited the pair of you over for a barbeque weekend to celebrate the Diamon Jubilee. What do you bring? Watermelon? Beer? The Father in-law won't care, but Mother-in-law might not look at you so kindly.
Get on her good side, and bring a gift that she can treasure and brag to all her friends about how you did: GOOD!
Crabtree & Evelyn's Diamond Jubilee Limited Edition India Hicks bag & Hand Wash & Hand Therapy is the ultimate gift. It includes a 275g bottle of their lovely Spider Lily Lotion, & Hand Wash. The India Hicks bag is fab for mother-in-law to carry out to put a few bits in when going shopping like a brolley, or an extra fold-away bag for foods.
My advice? Better spoil the mother-in-law as she's a bit of QUEEN too isn't she??
This set at £25 is available at all Crabtree and Evelyn stores or online at: www.crabtree-evelyn.co.uk
This is a great little momento of the Diamond Jubilee....Havaianas has designed a special pin that can be applied to any pair of their sandals! They are now available at their boutique on 69 Broadwick Street, or at Selfridges, Oxford Street and Manchester.Each pin is £2.
Each pin is made from stainless stell and colour coated with resin. It's a limited edition as only 500 are available. So hurry and be quick before the celebrations ahead in a couple of days!
Makes a great conversation piece when you're travelling and you can tell anyone how you were at the Royal Event this summer!
