Live an Extraordinary Life: India Hicks

A Journey of Beauty, Romance and Style: I am now an India Hicks Style Ambassador

Recently, as a long time blogger, I have felt a need to pursue more passion in my life, to find something new, exciting, and worthwhile. Thankfully I saw that my friend Patricia Van Essche of PVE Design.......
became involved with India Hicks and her new lifestyle venture. When I discovered the details about it, I knew at once it would be something perfect for me!

India is a spirited and adventuresome woman! Although India has Prince Charles as her her Godfather and she was Princess Diana's Bridesmaid, she lives on an island where she found the love of her life. She is as natural and unique as can be. The iconic Interior Designer David Hicks was her father!

She stands on her own two feet – doesn’t rely on anyone else and encourages other women to do the same. As the mother of 5 children, India personifies the working mother! 

India, a British Tastemaker, has lived an extraordinary life – and continues to live it, and share it.

Welcome to the India Hicks Experience! 
All of the items below are just a small part of her current fall collection!

The Carmen Clutch

Charms Galore in Gold or Silver

The India Hicks Collection of women’s lifestyle accessories includes: engraved tokens, charms and cords/chains, scarves, handbags and clutches, key fobs, perfume, lotion/body wash, hand cream, candles, and much more. Unique fabrics, fragrances, and most of all quality are her trademark. New items are added with the change of seasons.

Black Hibiscus Candle

Wild Spiderlily Eau de Parfum

The Duchess of Windsor Bag

The Heritage Scarf 

I  hope you will visit my website with India and choose something very special for yourself or as a gift! After all, the holidays (really!) are just around the corner!
